Recruiting: National Team Rankings

PSR Logo
Ohio State checks in with the top-rated class in the nation, with many of the usual suspects also boasting strong classes. Ole Miss, Penn State and North Carolina also have great hauls.

#1 Ohio State
Balanced class highlighted by Nick Bosa, the younger brother of All-American DL Joey; commitments from three of the nation's best tight ends in Luke Farrell, Jake Hausmann and Kierre Hawkins, all from Ohio.

#2 Georgia
New coach Kirby Smart's first task is keeping this class together, headlined by quarterback Jacob Eason and running back Elijah Holyfield, son of the champ.

#3 Florida State
Not a big class, but impressive defensively beginning with Virginia Beach defensive back Levonta Taylor.

#4 Alabama
Folsom, CA offensive lineman Jonah Williams is the centerpiece of a class with recruits from 12 states.

#5 Mississippi
The nation's top quarterback, Shea Patterson of IMG Academy, is headed to Oxford along with five-star offensive tackle Greg Little.

#6 Notre Dame
Michigan linebacker Daelin Hayes and Canadian reciever Chase Claypool are the stars of Brian Kelly's newest class.

#7 LSU
Defense-heavy class with difference makers on every level, most of whom could play immediately if necessary. Typical haul from Louisiana and Texas.

#8 Auburn
Marlon Davidson is that rare defensive lineman in the mold of John Randall, who can line up anywhere along the line of scrimmage.

#9 Texas A&M
A solid class all-around, predominantly from in-state, should keep things moving for the Aggies.

#10 UCLA
Lots of high-end linebackers - not a surprise in the first recruiting class with Tom Bradley as defensive coordinator.

#11 Michigan State
As usual, plenty of homework went into this Mark Dantonio class. QB Messiah deWeaver could be a game-changer for Sparty.

#12 Michigan
Twenty-one players from 11 states make up an impressive first class for Jim Harbaugh.

#13 Penn State
James Franklin's "offer them all and offer them early" strategy seems to have paid off again, as the entire class committed before their senior seasons.

#14 Clemson
Penn State James FranklinTalented group, but small and not much room for depth at any one position.

#15 Stanford
Mater Dei linebacker Curtis Robinson leads a balanced class that inludes a pair of recruits from Hawaii.

#16 Tennessee
Highly-talented group but heavy reliance on juco players should raise eyebrows for the future.

#17 USC
Small class but large on local talent.

#18 Baylor
A pair of junior college additions made this class a little more impactful.

#19 Florida
Large class but missing a difference-making offensive lineman.

#20 North Carolina
Intriguing pair of quarterbacks in Chazz Surratt and Logan Byrd headline the Heels latest batch.

It's probably appropriate that Ayanna Townsend earned the CoGo's High School Sports Unsung Hero Award as a sophomore.

One of the criteria for the CoGo's High School Sports Unsung Hero award is leadership. Whether it's in the context of sports, academics or in the community, the award honors student-athletes who distinguish themselves as leaders.

Spring has arrived. The long cold winter is behind us, and so too are the grueling mid-season months that set up the NHL for its stretch run. Here are the teams that have emerged from the marathon and are well-positioned to make their bids for Lord Stanley.

The NHL Playoffs are quickly approaching, and the Penguins are battling a spot at the Eastern Conference table. Here are three reasons why they will make a playoff run, and three reasons why they won’t.

Whenever a hockey team changes coaches mid-season, it’s fair to look at the season in two parts. The beginning of the 2015-16 Pittsburgh Penguins campaign was the end of the Mike Johnston era and the remainder marked the beginning of Mike Sullivan’s tenure as head coach.

Sure, making the playoffs would be nice, but is it really in the Penguins’ best interests?
