It might be prudent to wait a little longer before ranking the college football recruiting classes for 2011.
After all, there will be decommitments, recommitments, and torrid one-night stands (I'm looking at you, Matt Elam).
There will be massive hauls on Junior Day and months that go by without a peep.
Breakout juniors will get bum knees and drop out of the rankings. Middle linebackers with interest from Bowling Green and Montana State will grow two inches and 20 pounds their senior season and suddenly be the Ray Lewises of tomorrow.
But waiting is not my style—shooting first and asking questions later is (I used to work for the Detroit Free Press).
Pow, here's my rankings of the 2011 recruiting classes so far.
