The start of the Nike Football Training Camp season and other top offseason events across the country means that there is movement in recruiting industry rankings. This week, five within the top 100 saw their stock rise.
This year's Los Angeles Nike Football Training Camp was loaded with elite recruits- many of the best at their positions nationally for the 2015 cycle. Almost without exception, the highly-touted prospects performed at a high level.
West Virginia has the current No. 5 class nationally and the No. 1 class in the Big 12 for 2015 according to 247Sports team rankings. The key to the Mountaineers early success, and perhaps their program's overall recruiting efforts, is talent-rich south Florida.
The 2014 cycle had Tennessee and Kentucky. It was Ole Miss in 2013. For 2015- the surprise storyline could very well be Mississippi State, which currently has a top 10 class and potentially more on the way.
It's no secret that under Urban Meyer, Ohio State has continuously added speed to its roster through recruiting. For the Class of 2015, the Buckeyes will look to do the same and possibly land their backfield of the future.
This past weekend featured several commits of significance for the 2015 cycle -- including a trio at Penn State, where James Franklin and staff held a junior day that paid immediate dividends and could pay more in the very near future.
