College football recruiting rankings 2020: Top classes emerge during National Signing Day
The race for No. 1 has been a long-standing storyline in the 2020 recruiting cycle
It long appeared as if Clemson would end the 2020 recruiting cycle atop the pack when it came to the 247Sports Composite team rankings. And yet, as National Signing Day began, it is Georgia opening Wednesday with the No. 1 spot and Alabama looking to pull a come-from-behind victory by the time the day is over.
The Tigers boast a strong class with three of the top 10 prospects in the nation committed, but despite having one more five-star commitment (five vs. four), they sit two spots behind the Bulldogs. Why? The Dawgs had them on points with more four-star pledges as signing day began and emerged atop the pack with.
Georgia fended off a surge from No. 2 Alabama as four-star defensive tackle McKinnley Jackson (Lucedale, MS) chose to attend Texas A&M instead. No. 4 LSU also has a chance to make a big move by the time the day is out. National Signing Day began with SEC teams comprising seven of the top eight spots in the rankings with Florida (No. 8) holding a significant gap on Oklahoma (No. 9) and the Gators only looking to add to their haul.
