footballThere’s plenty of time to go in the battle to be the best college football team in the nation when it comes to the recruiting trail, but we thought why not take a look at how things are shaping-up.

Let’s start with 247sports.com, which has Florida St. ranked #1 with 17 verbal commitments, of which three are 5-star prospects, eight 4-star recruits and six 3-star athletes.  Right behind the Seminoles is Ohio St., which picked-up 4-star wide receiver Austin Mack from Bishop Luers High School in Indiana over the weekend.

Rounding-out the Top 5 – Miami (Florida) at #3, Georgia at #4 and LSU at #5, which saw the Tigers jump-up from #6.  On Monday, LSU picked-up a verbal commitment from defensive lineman Caleb Roddy, a 3-star prospect from Denham Springs in Louisiana.

Rivals.com also has Florida St. #1 in its latest team rankings, but Miami is #2 in its poll, followed by Ohio St., Michigan St. and Georgia.

ESPN also concurs with the other two on the Seminoles having the best class right now. Miami is #2 in the ESPN.com rankings followed by Georgia at #3, Ohio St. at #4 and LSU at #5.

Scout.com doesn’t see things like the other three as it has Ohio St. in the top spot and Florida St. is down at #6.  Following the Buckeyes at #2 is Miami, Michigan St. at #3, LSU at #4 and Georgia rounds-out the Top 5.
