The 10 Worst College Football Teams for Oversigning Recruits

Relatively speaking, oversigning recruits isn't like North Korea torpedoing a South Korean warship. Saban lies, nobody dies.

But it's still a highly unethical practice with several harmful consequences.

Players on oversigned rosters that don't "make the cut" either lose their scholarships partway through their schooling, or, if they're true freshmen in an oversigned class, never get one in the first place.

The process of transferring is cumbersome, while the JUCO system is an easy way for a player to disappear off the radar and never be discovered again.

From the chart available at, I've taken the 10 schools listed as the worst offenders at oversigning and either argued in their defense or showed how the numbers indeed indicate an unethical practice at work.

Take a look.
