Several college football teams are on pace to sign better 2014 classes than what they brought in for 2013. Some of these teams have new coaches who have provided a jolt to the program's morale and confidence, while other teams are capitalizing off big wins on the field.
A pair of SEC programs who have new leaders appear to stay among the top of the recruiting food chain. A Pac-12 program signed a small class last year, but its 2014 assembly has great quality.
Plus another pair of schools who are changing conferences have used that to their recruiting advantage.
