Bud Elliott and Morgan Moriarty discuss what they learned in the first ever college football recruiting Early Signing Period. -Georgia signed an absolutely ridiculous class, and the hosts break it down. How they did it, and what it means. -Clemson might have the best pound-for-pound class in the country, it’s simply limited by class size. -Texas’ defensive back class is totally awesome. The Longhorns signed five of the top-16 DBs in the nation. And how it is a perfect fit it is. -The Early Signing Period crushed teams with coaching changes compared to their traditional recruiting level due to the lack of time available to establish relationships. How did teams approach it? Which teams did the best? Should Florida fans celebrate? Should FSU fans panic? -There is a distinct lack of available backup plans because mid- and lower-level programs did a tremendous job to lock down their classes. Minnesota, Virginia Tech, Kansas and Illinois are discussed. How will this change going forward? -Some of the top sleepers who would normally be poached by bigger schools, who signed with smaller programs. -Should Ohio State fans be disappointed? Perhaps by the finish, but Morgan and Bud share some underrated players in the Buckeye’s class. -What to make of the negative recruiting allegedly done by Clemson against Ohio State? How does Negative recruiting even work? -And USC landed the top 2019 QB recruit, and got him to reclassify into the class of 2018.
