College Football Recruiting by Conference

Guest Writer: Caleb Bagwell

The high of College Football’s Early Signing Period has come and gone leaving many college football fans going through withdrawals from the lack of juicy information, moments of suspense leading to a rush of endorphins spurred from team pride, or the crushing disappointment of seeing a top recruit dawning a different team’s head gear. Staying true to the last few years’ trends, the rich got richer as Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia walked away with big names and top talent signing their names and pledging three to four years of service to their teams and fan bases. Following is a comprehensive look at each Power 5 teams recruiting class points, national ranking, and the averages of those statistics for each conference, based on the 2019 Football Team Rankings.
