The 2019 recruiting class is starting to take serious shape, as the early signing period began this morning, with most of the country's top prospects signing their letters of intent.

Most of the usual suspects are having great classes, from Alabama to Clemson to Ohio State.

One notable major program - Miami - is not.

The Hurricanes' 2019 class currently ranks in the 40s nationally.

That is not good.

"As of this moment, Rivals has Miami at No. 43, right behind Duke and just ahead of Vanderbilt and Northwestern. At least they’re all private schools?" USA TODAY's Dan Wolken joked.

Miami's class ranks a little bit better on 247Sports, at least. The Hurricanes' crop comes in at No. 35.

Still, it's far from what Miami fans have come to expect.
