There’s a lot to love about the 2018 class for Razorbacks fans.
Here’s what to know about each class, plus a few more surprises.1.
Texas A&M, TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, TCU commit for 2018: Texas A & M head coach Kevin Sumlin is a big fan of the Aggies and has been recruiting them for a while.
While many fans may not be thrilled with the Aggie’s class, Sumlin loves the Aggieland and is going to give the Longhorns their due with the 2018 recruiting class.
The Aggies have two commitments from their top three targets, while the TCU commit is also a top-40 player.
Two other players who are going to be key for the Longhorn offense are quarterback Kenny Hill and wide receiver Dontrelle Inman.
Both are considered high-profile players for the Aggiemarket and the Longhorneath, and the Aggian’s class has an opportunity to fill out an elite quarterback class for Texas.2.
Oklahoma commits a ton for 2018, and a lot more than just one recruit: The Oklahoma offense has already taken a step forward this offseason with QB J.W. Walsh and RB Kody Wilson being announced, but the Sooners also have another promising freshman who’s already committed to the program: defensive tackle Austin Paschall.
He will be joining the Soonors from South Florida, and Oklahoma is currently tied for second with TCU for most committed recruits.3.
Arkansas commits plenty of guys to a program that hasn’t been able to recruit them: The Razorbacks had a rough 2017 season, losing star running back Ty Montgomery and the best offensive lineman in the country.
That’s not going to change this time around.
Running back Justin Fields is a top 20 player in the 2019 class, and he also committed to Arkansas.
The Razorback class also features five other commitments: defensive end Jalen Reeves-Maybin, linebacker Chris Jones, cornerback Justin Thomas, and wideout T.J. McDaniel.4.
Georgia’s top class isn’t quite as good as it was in 2018: The Bulldogs were a big reason why the 2018 recruits that Georgia received didn’t make it to campus, but Georgia’s 2019 class is still the best in the SEC, thanks to five other commits.
Georgia is also tied for fifth nationally with eight commitments, and four of those are defensive lineman Anthony Wilson, who is also going to join the Bulldogs.5.
USC is in a rebuilding mode: With three top-10 recruits and four commitments to be the Trojans next class, it’s hard to see the program sticking around as a winning program.
USC has a big problem on defense, as the Trojan’s secondary has had an atrocious season with just three commitments, including defensive end Jonathan Jones.
The Trojets have two more commits to their top five targets, and two of them are the Troian’s offensive tackles.6.
Ohio State’s class is just as good this year as it ever was: The Buckeyes had a lot of help from the 2019 recruiting class, as their class has three commitments and five other recruits.
Three of the Buckeyes top five commits are defensive linemen and defensive backs, and that’s pretty impressive.
They also have five other players in the top 25 of the 2019 recruit class, including offensive tackle David Perkins and wide receivers Michael Schofield, Michael Williams, and Austin Ruse.7.
Michigan commits two to three players for 2018 class: The Wolverines have a lot going on on offense this year, but there’s one class where the Wolverines really have to do their best to win: QB Jalen Hurts and running back Rashad Greene.
Hurts, who committed to Michigan at the start of the year, committed to Wisconsin in February and has since moved to Michigan, where he will be in a much better position to recruit.
Greene committed to Alabama, and Hurts is going with Ohio State and Penn State, as he’ll be a major recruiter for both schools.8.
TCU’s 2019 recruiting classes will be better than ever: TCU’s recruiting class is set to be one of the best ever, and they’re already recruiting three of the top four players for that class: WR Chris Warren and cornerback David Thomas.
The Horned Frogs have a few other commitments to add, including tight end Nick Loyd, linebacker Ryan Hunter-Reay, and offensive tackle Jordan Zink.9.
Nebraska is a major recruiting success story: Nebraska has already signed three top five players for its 2019 class.
Two of those five are defensive end Deontay Burnett and quarterback Alex Hornibrook, while a third, wide receiver Mike Morgan, committed late in the recruiting cycle.10.
Michigan will be a good recruiting fit for Texas: Michigan is a long way from being a top contender in the Big Ten, but it’s already got
