Winners and Losers of College Football's National Signing Day

With National Signing day behind us, most teams have their 2020 recruiting classes completed. Recruiting is the lifeblood of every college football program and there were some major winners and losers on National Signing Day. Let’s breakdown who came out ahead, and what programs took a major hit.

Winners

Georgia Bulldogs

The Georgia Bulldogs were in good shape after the early signing period, but they only improved. The Bulldogs picked up four five-star recruits, and 15 four-star recruits.

Six of the four-star recruits enrolled early, which is going to only help them going forward. At some point, all this recruiting work should result in a National Championship. Adding this talent next to breakout candidate, Zamir White, maybe this will be the year.

Oregon Ducks

Because of location, the Oregon Ducks are at a disadvantage, but that didn’t stop them from pulling in a great recruiting class.

During USC’s glory days, California was basically off-limits, but that isn’t the case anymore. The Ducks went able to secure seven recruits from The Golden State.

The Ducks look like they are going to be a problem in the PAC 12 for many years to come.

Florida State Seminoles

The Florida State Seminoles have had their issues winning games, but it hasn’ t had a lot of impact on recruiting. Even with only a few weeks to work, former Memphis Tigers head coach Mike Norvell was able to secure a top-25 class.

If the wins start to come on the field, it’s only a matter of time before the Seminoles start having top ten recruiting classes again.

Losers

Virginia Tech Hokies

The Virginia Tech Hokies program could be in a lot of issues going forward if they don’t start bringing in more talent quickly.

The Hokies had the 70th ranked recruiting class in the country which isn’t good enough for a team that is used to being in the top 25. If the team can’t turn around the recruiting it might be time to bring in a coach who can get quality talent to the school.

USC Trojans

The USC Trojans kept Clay Helton for another season and that didn’t pay off on recruiting trail. They finished with the 52 ranked class which was well behind the UCLA Bruins.

Helton can’t lead the Trojans to many victories, and he can’t recruit. Rember when the team decided to pass on Ed Orgeron, yeah that was a bad mistake.
