Georgia lands nation's top football recruiting class

With several of the country’s top college football programs still pursuing targets in February, we saw some movement in the top 10 national recruiting classes on Wednesday’s signing day.

Tennessee had a big day as the Volunteers flipped four-star Florida State receiver recruit Malachi Wideman. Texas landed the gem of its class in getting five-star defensive end Alfred Collins, beating out Oklahoma.

Texas A&M made a big splash in signing four-star defensive tackle McKinnley Jackson, who some in the industry considered an Alabama lean.

After the dust settled, here’s how USA TODAY Sports thinks the top 10 classes shook out:

1. Georgia

With five-star offensive lineman Broderick Jones and four-star offensive lineman Sedrick Van Pran officially signing with Georgia, the Bulldogs locked in the best 2020 recruiting class in the country. And that comes despite Sam Pittman leaving the staff to take the head coaching job at Arkansas. Eleven of the country’s top-100 recruits, according to the 247Sports Composite, are headed to Georgia. And 6-foot-8, five-star tight end Darnell Washington, who signed in December, is one of the most intriguing prospects in the whole class.

2. Clemson

Clemson had our No. 1 recruiting class after the December early signing period. The Tigers didn’t do anything wrong; Georgia simply had a great January and February. Dabo Swinney still brings in the No. 1 overall player in the country in defensive tackle Bryan Bresee, as well as the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the country in D.J. Uiagalelei. It’s a balanced class, with five-stars behind center, on the defensive line, at running back and at linebacker.
