Spring football is officially in the books. Now, it's time to start looking ahead to the 2022 season. On Tuesday, 247Sports released a post-spring college football top 10 list. To no surprise, Alabama checks in at No. 1.
The Crimson Tide return both their offensive and defensive stars in Bryce Young and Will Anderson. There's an argument to be made they're the top two players in the sport, at least right now. Alabama will top dog this upcoming season.
"Armed with Young and Will Anderson, arguably the nation's two best players overall, Alabama received a maximum of 125 points in our post-spring update after all five ballots that were cast tabbed Nick Saban's program in the top spot," Brad Crawford writes. "Alabama addressed a couple of needs with high-end additions through the transfer portal and could be looking for another prior to fall camp. Offensive line play is one area to watch early and was a point of emphasis this spring from Saban, despite a couple injuries that limited how this group will actually look in a few months."
The defending champion Georgia Bulldogs are No. 3 in 247Sports top 10. Ohio State checks in one spot higher at No. 2.

- Ohio State
- Texas A&M
- Notre Dame
- NC State
It's a bit surprising to see teams like Texas A&M and Clemson in the top five. Both teams are full of talent, but relatively unproven.
Utah, meanwhile, could be flying under the radar a bit. The Utes were one of the best teams in college football down the stretch of the 2021 season.
With the 2022 season still months away, who do you think will win the championship?
