College football recruiting rankings for teams won't be final until signing day next February. By then teams will have their full classes assembled and it will be fair to compare all of them in an actual set of rankings. For now many classes are incomplete, so the rankings could be completely different come signing day.
With that disclaimer out of the way, it is interesting to see where things stand in the college football recruiting world right now, mainly because of how highly the Michigan football recruiting class ranks. In MaxPreps' team rankings, the Wolverines' class is ranked second in the nation behind Texas. Both Michigan and Texas have 18 commitments, four of which are in MaxPreps' top 100.
Here is a look at MaxPreps' top 10 for its team rankings:
- Texas A&M
- Florida State
- Miami (FL)
Notable teams in the rest of MaxPreps' rankings are Notre Dame (No. 11), Penn State (No. 13), Wisconsin (No. 15), Michigan State (No. 22) and Northwestern (No. 23). Ohio State is nowhere to be found.
