College Football's Top 10 Overachievers

When the media bands Alabama, or Florida, or Texas, or USC as having the "top recruiting class of the year," it's not a shock when those teams enjoy 10-win seasons, win conference championships, and are perennial favorites to play in a BCS bowl at year's end.

But there are other schools listed far down the recruiting class ranks that seem to defy the predictions.

These teams typically never sign an ESPNU 150 recruit. They aren't high on the list of potential schools for the blue chip players. Five stars usually has more to do with availability of restrooms at the stadium rather than recruit ratings.

There schools (for the most part) don't have a realistic shot at a BCS title, and have only a slightly better shot at playing in any major January bowl games.

Yet, despite their seemingly lackluster recruiting classes, these schools have found a way to do more with less.

Here are the Top 10 Overachievers in college football.
