National Signing Day is where a lot of college coaches make their money. Finding top talent to fit an offensive or defensive scheme is no easy task. Adding to the process, recruits need to feel that said school is a perfect fit offering a top-notch education. Pulling together a Top 20 class does not ensure conference titles or an appearance in the College Football Playoff, but it sure helps. Which team will win the overall recruiting battle and which teams will win their respective conference recruiting wars?

Heading into National Signing Day, on Signing Day Eve if you will, Ohio State leads the back with Georgia nipping at their heels. Alabama is ready to mount a charge forward along with Clemson and USC. LSU has already suffered one lost commit with 3-star safety ArDarius Washington heading out of the Sportsman’s Paradise for school opting for TCU. Other last-minute deflections so far includes 4-star receiver Gabriel Douglas decommitting from Texas Tech and 4-star linebacker Eli’jah Winston opting to leave his home state school of Oregon for USC.

How will it all end up? This is where we are starting from, comeback on Wednesday to see how it all finalizes.
