College programs still have 11 months to lock-in their 2013 class, but with some top prospects already committing, early returns point to a handful of schools emerging with the best recruiting classes.
Full Ride Episode 2: Part 3 of 5
No surprise that perennial recruiting powerhouses Michigan, Ohio State, Texas, Georgia and Alabama constitute the top-five recruiting classes at this point in the race, all for different reasons.
For example, Michigan has already landed the services of two top offensive line prospects in Patrick Kugler (Wexford, PA) and Chris Fox (Parker, CO), giving the Wolverines a major upgrade up front into the future.
Meanwhile, Urban Meyer is scooping up athletes on all sides of the ball. He's landed a pair of elite defensive backs in Cam Burrows (Trotwood, OH) and Eli Woodard (Voorhees, NJ). Yet, the Buckeyes biggest prize to this point is Jalin Marshall (Middletown, OH), who could line up at running back, quarterback or receiver in college.
As for Texas, Georgia and Alabama, Fox Sport's Brandon Huffman gives Full Ride the rundown.
