College football's early signing day is wrapping up, with almost all of the country's top recruits making their commitments official.

Of course, the top of the recruiting rankings is dominated by the usual suspects - Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State, Oklahoma, etc.

One surprising SEC program has one of the most-impressive classes in the country, though.

That school: Arkansas.

"Signing Day's biggest surprise? That would be Arkansas at No. 12, ahead of FSU, Auburn and Florida. How did they nab likely best class in school history? With John Chavis moonlighting as an electrician and the annoying little brother from The Blind Side," Yahoo! Sports' Pete Thamel tweeted.

Arkansas had a disappointing 2018 season, going 2-10 and finishing last in their own division, but if the recruiting can continue like this, the Razorbacks will begin to surge up in the conference.
