College Football Coaches Who Could Become the Next Nick Saban of Recruiting
Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Saban has set the gold standard of college football recruiting success from the perspective of a head coach.

His presence alone has made Alabama arguably the biggest recruiting draw in all of college football, and he's respected both as a coach and a recruiter.

Saban has the uncanny ability to recruit elite players and actually get the most out of them. That's what separates Alabama and Saban from most others in college football.

Many coaches can recruit well, but not all can translate recruiting success into on-field success. Not everyone can take a 3-star player and turn him into 5-star talent, or take a 5-star recruit and fully utilize his potential. 

That's the Saban difference on the recruiting trail. Recruits know they'll be coached by the best of the best, and they'll usually always be in the hunt for a national championship. 

Such recruiting prestige is rare, but it's not impossible to achieve.

Here are five coaches that have the potential to achieve "Saban status" as a recruiter.
