(Photo by Omar Rawlings/Getty Images)The spring is a very active time for recruits to camp and visit their top schools, leading to a number of summer commitments. This Fourth of July week has been no different.We’ve seen 44 different players announce commitments since the start of Wednesday, per 247Sports’ running list. Half of them have gone to the Power Five conferences.Naturally, that means we’ve seen a decent amount of shifting at the top of the recruiting rankings. While it is still early, we are closing in on the end of some of these classes, as a number of schools are already in the high teens and 20s in terms of commitments.Here are the current Top 20 recruiting classes for 2020, via 247Sports‘ composite rankings.The SEC is dominant as usual, with nine of the top 20 programs as of this writing:Clemson (18 commits, 14 four/five-stars)Alabama (20 commits, 16 four/five-stars)LSU (20 commits, 15 four/five-stars)Ohio State (19 commits, 10 four/five-stars)Notre Dame (17 commits, 9 four/five-stars)Georgia (14 commits, 11 four/five-stars)Michigan (22 commits, 10 four/five-stars)Florida (18 commits, 9 four/five-stars)Miami (21 commits, 7 four/five-stars)Penn State (20 commits, 5 four/five-stars)Texas A&M (15 commits, 7 four/five-stars)Oklahoma (14 commits, 8 four/five-stars)Florida State (15 commits, 9 four/five-stars)Auburn (13 commits, 8 four/five-stars)Oregon (15 commits, 6 four/five-stars)Ole Miss (21 commits, 3 four/five-stars)North Carolina (20 commits, 3 four/five-stars)South Carolina (14 commits, 5 four/five-stars)Mississippi State (20 commits, 3 four/five-stars)Iowa (21 commits, 2 four/five-stars)There are still some big-time programs with room to move way up. Stanford (No. 26, 11 commits), Washington (No. 29, 11 commits), Texas (No. 43, 7 commits), West Virginia (No. 57, 10 commits), USC (No. 61, 9 commits), and Nebraska (No. 64, 7 commits) are all programs that often recruit at a top 20-25 level that has relatively small classes as of now, and plenty of room to move up.last_img
