One major college football conference dominated the early signing period. It's not too surprising.

The SEC absolutely dominated college football's early signing period, taking home the majority of the country's top recruits.

The league had most of the country's top classes, as well.

USA TODAY's Dan Wolken summed it up:

"SEC dominated national signing day. Per Rivals: Top 4 classes (Alabama, Georgia, A&M, LSU) and 11 of top 24. Number of 5-stars signing with each conference: SEC 14, ACC 3, B10 3, B12 3, P12 1," he tweeted.

That's impressive, though unsurprising.

The SEC has dominated most recruiting cycles over the years.
