The rich seem to just keep getting richer. And on National Signing Day, the first day for high school football players to sign their national letters of intent to play for the college of their choice, the Tide kept rolling.
According to both Rivals.com and ESPN.com, Alabama sits atop of the recruiting class rankings again this year, after winning its third actual national title in four years. Rivals.com is one of the most influential websites when it comes to reporting on and analyzing high school talent, and how that talent will translate to the college level. Alabama tops Rivals’ 2013 list for the fifth time in the last six years.
Incidentally on both Rivals’ list and ESPN’s list, the SEC has six of the nation’s top ten recruiting classes, with the nation’s top player, Robert Nkemdiche, signing with the Ole Miss Rebels. The rest of the nation continues to play catch up.
