National Signing Day 2012: College Football Recruiting Rankings Update

Texas and Alabama continue to battle for the top spot. Fresher recruiting rankings update here.

National Signing Day 2012 is in full swing, and several top college football recruiting juggernauts dominating. All of the signings, decommitments and flips have caused some major shakeups to the college football recruiting rankings. Here's an update as National Signing Day rolls on.

Team Scout Rivals 247
Alabama 2 1 1
Texas 1 2 2
Ohio State 4 3 5
Florida 5 4 4
Michigan 3 5 7
Florida State 14 6 3
Oklahoma 8 7 8
Miami 7 8 9
Georgia 10 11 6
LSU 6 14 10
Oregon 11 12 13
Southern Cal 9 18 14
Texas A&M 19 13 11
Notre Dame 12 19 15
Clemson 15 9 22
Stanford 16 16 16
UCLA 13 17 19
Auburn 18 21 21
Arkansas 17 26 26
Virginia Tech 21 20 23

This is a composite of three of the four major scouting services (Scout, Rivals and 247Sports). ESPN has not updated recently and will be included in the next update.

The battle for the top spot continues between Alabama and Texas. Ohio State seems destined to remain in the top five spots, and Florida State and USC battle for the top class of fewer than 20 recruits.

LSU and Auburn continue to have disappoint Signing Day experiences, as defensive end Torshiro Davis opted for Texas and defensive end Leonard Williams chose USC.

There is some serious disagreement in some of the rankings, as Scout, the clear oddball, chooses to focus more on quantity than quality. This is nothing new, however.
