Early look at top 20 college football recruiting classes

LSU and Oklahoma currently rank second and third with 10 and 11 verbal commitments, respectively. Both are off to outstanding starts, but have a lot of ground to make up if they are to surpass Texas.
Contrast those numbers with the likes of Penn State and South Carolina. The Nittany Lions have yet to receive any pledges from the class of 2011, while South Carolina, which landed Byrnes star Marcus Lattimore in February, currently sits at only one commitment.

These rankings will continue to be updated periodically throughout the year as the 2011 National Signing Day approaches.
