As the recruiting season enters its final stages, we are starting to get a sense of who will have the biggest jump on their respective classes.
The 247Sports Composite and Rivals recruiting rankings both show Florida State and Florida as the top two teams to get an elite class, followed by Ohio State and Alabama.
Ohio State has the largest recruiting class to date, which has them on pace to get two players in the top five.
However, it’s not just Florida State that has an elite recruiting class.
LSU has two, Alabama has one and West Virginia has one.
The Big 12 is home to four, and four of them are from the SEC.
There are some interesting names on the horizon, however.
Ohio is going to have a big, strong recruiting class with the addition of three prospects.
One of them is an offensive tackle.
The other is a safety.
Ohio’s Chris Brown is expected to be the best prospect at the position, but he may not be the top prospect.
He could be in line for a big jump on his class.
According to Rivals, Brown is the No. 13 offensive tackle in the country, which ranks No. 11.
Rivals also lists him at No. 21.
The same site has him ranked as the No, 22 safety, and the No 23 player in the class.
Brown is the 6-foot-3, 255-pounder who played at the University of Texas and is the son of former NFL safety Chris Brown.
He started in five games last season and recorded eight tackles, a forced fumble and one interception.
He also played for the Longhorns’ defensive line.
As for the offensive tackle, the 247Sports composite lists him as the 4-star prospect, which is a spot behind Alabama’s Cam Robinson.
The Crimson Tide have four other offensive tackles, which includes three of the five players listed on the Rivals composite.
A four-star defensive tackle is also listed on that Rivals composite, and he also happens to be a son of Crimson Tide quarterback Jalen Robinson.
Robinson and the Trojans have a connection that stretches back to their days as defensive linemen at Alabama.
It is also worth noting that the three other offensive linemen on the 247/247 Composite are also brothers.
That gives the Crimson Tide a little more depth, and they have a strong connection to Robinson.
There’s also a good chance that all of these guys are already signed to schools, but it will be up to them to make the jump.
The recruiting rankings are just a snapshot of the best of what is to come for FSU and FCS teams.
While it’s always difficult to get accurate numbers, it does provide an insight into what is happening on the recruiting trail.
