according to recruiting analyst Tom Lemming
Fresh off a BCS Championship, Alabama is the new #1 on the recruiting trail as well. The Crimson Tide supplanted Texas after coach Nick Saban added safety Landon Collins (Geismar, LA/Dutchtown) and WR Cyrus Jones Jr. (Baltimore, MD/Gilman) who committed during last week’s Under Armour All-America game. Alabama currently has 25 commitments, five of whom are ranked among Lemming’s Top 100 senior recruits.

1. Alabama
2. Texas
3. Michigan
4. Florida
5. Ohio State
6. LSU
7. Miami (FL)
8. Oklahoma
9. California
10. Florida State
