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.
Georgia's Bryan McClendon edged USC's Tee Martin for the No. 1 spot in the 247Sports national recruiter rankings for the 2014 cycle, but there were other big efforts, including one ACC assistant who may not be done and an SEC assistant who had a hand in 17 signees.
