National Signing Day: League breakdown
Rivals.com offers a quick glance at the BCS leagues as of late afternoon Wednesday. Check back at Rivals.com on Thursday for an in-depth look at each league.
5. Virginia: Didn't have any work to do given all their summer commitments. The Cavaliers were able to hold onto everyone so there was no drama here.
12. Wake Forest: Tough signing day for the Deacs, losing out on some guys they wanted. Did manage to keep their guys on board.
1. Rutgers: Topping off the best class in school history, the Scarlet Knights grabbed five-star Darius Hamilton Tuesday night, plus three-star wide receiver Ian Thomas and three-star athlete Jevon Tyree Wednesday.
3. West Virginia: While the Mountaineers were unable to steal Joel Caleb at the end, they continued to stockpile their offensive roster with athletic playmakers from Florida like Torry Clayton, Devonte Mathis and Devonte Robinson.
4. Pittsburgh: Despite some initial struggles after their most recent coaching change, the Panthers pulled it together, and were helped by their newest four-star commitment, Deaysean Rippy, earlier Wednesday.
7. Syracuse: The Orange continued to regain their recruiting foothold in the state of New York with this recruiting class, which included the signing day commitment of three-star defensive back Wayne Morgan.
3. Nebraska: Losing out on five-star Andrus Peat hurt, but the Cornhuskers did add four-star athlete Alonzo Moore and three-star defensive tackles Aaron Curry and Vincent Valentine on National Signing Day.
12. Indiana: It was a quiet National Signing Day in Bloomington, with no late additions, but the Hoosiers sign a class of 25 prospects, eight of whom are from the state of Indiana.
3. Texas Tech: The Red Raiders held on to all their commits and switched Casey Gladney from Alabama on signing day.
1. Stanford: It was a humongous recruiting haul for the Cardinal, who landed five-stars Kyle Murphy, Andrus Peat and Aziz Shittu. Three-stars Zach Hoffpauir (Cal) and Michael Rector (Washington) flipped and four-star OG Brandon Fanaika did not switch.
2. USC: The Trojans had a great day landing five-star receiver Nelson Agholor and four-star recruits Leonard Williams and Devian Shelton. Darreus Rogers stayed with USC instead of flipping to Arizona State. It could have been amazing if Murphy, Shittu, Peat and/or Cyler Miles picked them.
3. UCLA: First-year coach Jim Mora and his staff loaded up with wide receivers Jordan Payton, who had previously been committed to USC, Cal and Washington, Javon Williams, Kenneth Walker, a former Cal commit and Georgia recruit Ahmad Harris. UCLA added Randall Goforth late in the day.
5. Washington: Pio Vatuvei flipped from USC, Wallace came over from Oregon State and Hawaii lineman Shane Brostek signed. Getting Shaq Thompson is still the headline story for the Huskies. Four-star corner Brandon Beaver signed with the Huskies late.
7. California: The Golden Bears' class got gutted in the last few weeks. There's no way around it. But keeping four-star Cedric Dozier and a handful of other four-star recruits means things are still OK. Cal also landed four-star receiver Kenny Lawler toward the end of the day. Four-star Bryce Treggs stayed committed to Cal and turned down USC and UCLA.
8. Arizona State: First-year coach Todd Graham had a solid signing day with commitments from junior college running back Marion Grice, defensive tackle Jaxon Hood and defensive back Laiu Moeakiola. The big pickup came earlier this week in D.J. Foster.
9. Colorado: It was a relatively peaceful day for the Buffaloes, who didn't get any commitments on signing day but the coaching staff did all its work in the last few weeks, which includes landing two four-star defensive backs.
11. Arizona: The Wildcats were active in first-year coach Rich Rodriguez's first signing day with commitments from Dylan Cozens, Wayne Capers, J.T. Washington and Jamar Allah. Athlete Bryan Harper was added to the class later in the day.
4. Auburn: The Tigers didn't get the typical national title bump, yet still landed 11 four-star prospects, including Rivals100 offensive tackle Avery Young and receiver Ricardo Louis, and have an average recruit rating above 3.5.
5. Texas A&M: Despite having a few players flip to other schools down the stretch, the Aggies will enter their new conference with a class that is more than SEC worthy.
7. Tennessee: The Vols finished things off by landing talented junior college receiver Cordarrelle Patterson late, which helped offset some of the sting from losing two linebacker commits in recent days.
8. South Carolina: The Gamecocks grabbed eight four-star commits, including potential difference-makers Mike Davis, a running back, and Shaq Roland, a receiver, and did very well in neighboring Georgia.
