A Very Early Top 10

WHO'S GOING PRO? WHERE WILL TOP RECRUITS END UP? WHO CARES. HERE'S HOW NEXT YEAR'S TOP TEAMS LINE UP TODAY
January 19, 2015

1. OHIO STATE

The Buckeyes arrived ahead of schedule; 2015 was the target year. Now, who will play quarterback?

2. TCU

The offense was new in '14; imagine QB Trevone Boykin and a group of veterans running it.

3. AUBURN

Get to know the name Jeremy Johnson, because the Tigers love their next quarterback.

4. USC

Finally out from under NCAA sanctions, the Trojans will return to the national-title race.

5. MICHIGAN STATE

Quarterback Connor Cook's return means the Spartans will remain contenders.

6. OLE MISS

The great recruits of '12 will be great juniors if WR Laquon Treadwell and OT Laremy Tunsil return.

7. BAYLOR

Quarterback Bryce Petty is gone, but the offensive line, skill players and most of the defense return.

8. OREGON

The Ducks need a quarterback to emerge, but the machine they've built is still formidable.

9. CLEMSON

If quarterback Deshaun Watson is healthy after left ACL surgery, the Tigers can't be discounted.

10. ALABAMA

WR Amari Cooper and RB T.J. Yeldon are gone, but the defense could be better than last year.
