National Signing Day is only a few short days away.  We all know that some 5-star recruits are going to pan out, while others fizzle out.  On the other end of the spectrum, there will likely be several walk-ons and 2-stars that will turn into All-Conference performers.

How did this year's college fantasy football stars look as a recruits on their signing day?  We break it down for you. 

Note: players were selected using total points in weeks 1-13 (performance scoring with 0.5 PPR). The source used for all recruiting data was Rivals.com.

5-star recruit
No. 2 ranked QB in nation
No. 28 ranked overall player in nation
Chose Florida over Oklahoma, South Carolina, LSU, Georgia and Maryland

 

RB - DeMarco Murray (Las Vegas, NV)

4-star recruit
No. 2 ranked RB in nation
No. 35 ranked overall player in nation
His final four schools were Oklahoma, USC, Florida and Penn State

 

RB - LaMichael James (Texarkana, TX)

4-star recruit
No. 12 ranked RB in nation

WR - Justin Blackmon (Ardmore, OK)

3-star recruit
No. 91 ranked WR in nation
Chose Oklahoma State over Colorado and Missouri.

 

WR - Ryan Broyles (Norman, OK)

4-star recruit
No. 11 ranked WR in nation
Originally committed to Oklahoma State.  Received an offer from Oklahoma hours after his verbal commitment was given, prompting Broyles to switch his commitment to Oklahoma.  After some more thought, he decided Oklahoma State was where he felt most comfortable. Ultimately, he made his final switch to Oklahoma on signing day.

 

TE - Ladarius Green (Pensacola, FL)

2-star recruit (as a WR)
Unranked in nation
According to Rivals.com, his only other offer was from Florida Atlantic.

While this is an extremely small sample size, it is interesting to note that four of the six players were 4 or 5-star recruits coming out of high school.  In this case, the cream did indeed rise to the top.
