|247Sports' Top 25: 2011 Class Rankings|
|Valentine's Day is Jadeveon Clowney's birthday, but he won the hearts of South Carolina fans everywhere when he committed to the Gamecocks on Monday morning. |
Clowney, by far the No. 1 player in the country according to 247Sports, is the final blue-chip prospect in the 2011 recruiting class to sign and turn in his letter of intent. As such, 247Sports has updated its team recruiting rankings for the final time until enrolled rankings are released in August.
Clowney helped the Gamecocks climb from No. 19 to No. 12 in the rankings. His individual player rating of 105 makes him one of two "franchise players" in this class according to 247Sports. We expect his impact on the field to match his impact in these rankings.
Georgia also moved up in this installment of the rankings thanks to the late signature of four-star defensive tackle John Jenkins. The Bulldogs climbed from ninth to seventh, passing Florida and Notre Dame.
Alabama has the top recruiting class in the nation according to 247Sports, followed by Florida State, Texas, LSU, Auburn and USC.
