Top 10 Recruiting Classes In College Football For 2018

Here's how the top 10 2018 recruiting classes stack up against each other, according to 247 Sports.

With college football still weeks away, it's a good time to look ahead at recruiting classes for next year. Luckily, 247 Sports has done most of the heavy lifting, rating and ranking each commit and recruiting class so far.

As you'll soon see, some schools are faring much better than others, with the Buckeyes leading the way in terms of recruiting. Some bluebloods are also noticeably absent from the top 10, including Michigan (No. 15), USC (16) and Alabama (26).
