2022 college football recruiting class rankings

The 2022 college football recruiting class has just begun. Many prospective students are still waiting for the extension to end so they can visit and speak to the teachers in person.

Commitments could skyrocket over the course of the summer, but for now, the more than 100 candidates on the ESPN 300 list are among those who have already committed. Some programs have begun to actively develop or have established a good foundation and are working to expand their classes in the coming months. Some of the usual suspects, such as. B. Ohio State and Georgia, which contracted a sophomore and a freshman, respectively, for the 2021 cycle, are back on top or close to it.

Meanwhile, Alabama, which just signed a top class, and Clemson start a little further back, but they too remain teams to keep an eye on.

Big Ten Titles: 1 of 14
Best Offensive Bet: QB Queen Evers (No. 1)
Best defensive end: CB Jaheim Singletary (#34)

The Buckeyes have yet to win a No. 1 contract in the ESPN 300 era, but they were close to No. 2 three times in the last five cycles, and they suggest they’ll be back in the mix at the top. The leader of this class is Ewers, the No. 1 player in the ESPN 300 who left Texas in October 2020 and committed to the Buckeyes in November. He is a balanced player with a quick, smooth release and the arm strength to make all the throws. He leads an already deep and talented class that includes WR Caleb Burton, a teammate from Texas who placed 73rd. The defense is well represented with a handful of ESPN 300 leads on that side of the ball, including two top-15 cornerbacks in Singletary and Jaire Brown.

Best Offensive Commitment: QB Gunner Stockton (#96)
Best defensive prospect: ATH Deyon Bouie (nr 26)

2 Connected

Georgia has five top-3 classes in a row and looks poised to extend that streak to six. The Bulldogs received commitments from six of the state’s top 10 talents, including Stockton, a strong passer who was previously committed by South Carolina and will join QB Brock Vandagriff in Athens in 2021. The class fund is currently on the defensive. On the defensive line, Georgia has secured two of the top five DT prospects in the country, Bear Alexander and Tier West. Bouye could play either side of the ball, but focuses more on defense. Along with Malarkey Starks and Marquis Groves-Killebrew, two other in-state aspirants, he gives Georgia three ESPN 300 commitments in the secondary.

Best Offensive Commitment: QB Walker Howard (#28)
Best defensive effort: CB Laterrance Welch (#122)

Although LSU struggled during the 2020 season, they still had a strong presence on the recruiting trail as they just contracted a sixth-year senior. The Tigers are facing one of their best starts in 2022. They are always tough to beat at home, and they have the commitment of several key in-state prospects, led by Howard and top-10 OT Will Campbell. Many eyes will be on Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans, as that’s where coveted unranked QB Arch Manning (2023) is, but in the near future the Tigers have had success there (2022) with OT Trooper Bo Bordelon, an aggressive, agile big man whose father was an All-SEC offensive lineman at LSU, and WR A.J. Johnson, one of Manning’s targets in big games. Building on a tradition of great defenders, LSU has already secured the services of three four-star cornerbacks, including the tall and instinctive JaDarian Rhym.

Top Offensive: QB Steven Angeli (#129)
Best defensive commitment: DE Tyson Ford (#153)

The Fighting Irish are making an early attempt to get back into the top 10 classes. They have one of the best offensive units in the 2020 season and are working to keep that unit strong with two ESPN 300 offensive players, the state’s No. 1 center, Joey Tanon, and Ty Chan. Angeli, a talented QB who continues to develop and improve his mechanics, has good arm strength and a quick handoff. Running back Yadaryan Price not only has good speed, but he is also a tough runner who can produce after contact. The four-star Ford, a defensive lineman with a good initial swing and good mobility, leads several expected front-seven commitments.

Big Ten Titles: 2 of 14
Best Offensive Bet: QB Drew Allar (#37)
Best defensive prospect: Mekhki Flowers (#169)

The Nittany Lions’ 2021 class never finished higher than 15th and ultimately finished outside the top 25, but they are showing signs of a stronger 2022 on the recruiting trail. They had early success at Penn State, taking five of Pennsylvania’s top 10 players, led by Drew Shelton, who will play his senior year at IMG Academy in Florida, and Talley, an explosive defender with a good motor. They have two quarterbacks in the class, led by No. 3 QB-PP Allar, a heavy-armed passer with good feet, and Bo Pribula, who has some traits in the mold of former Penn State QB Trace McSorley. Head coach James Franklin is on track to put together one of the most talented groups of pass catchers in this class, including WR Kaden Saunders (ESPN 300), a good route runner who can create yards after the catch with his sudden speed.

Best Offensive Commitment: QB Conner Weigman (#51)
Best defensive prospect: Detective Malik Silla (#47)

The Aggies completed the 2021 cycle and are building on that momentum for the 2022 class. All their commitments came in the new year and they started Silla, a local defender with a good first step and potential. Add him to a talented group of 2021 D-linemen led by five-star Shemar Turner, and Texas A&M could have a formidable defensive front. The Aggies also added one of Silas’ ESPN 300 high school teammates, long snapping cornerback Bobby Taylor. They have a quarterback in Weigman, a strong thrower with good accuracy.

ACC rating: 1 of 14
Best offensive commitment: QB Nikko Marchiol (#239)
Best defensive prospect: CB Travis Hunter (#4)

The Seminoles have had problems at quarterback in recent years, but Mike Norvell quickly moved his rider to Marchiola for the 2022 cycle. A lefty with a quick release and good accuracy, his stock rose during his junior season when he also showed the kind of mobility that could cause problems as a runner. The Seminoles also have one of the best defensive players in this class with Hunter, who has an excellent combination of speed, quickness, length and durability. The addition of No. 1 athlete Sam McCall, who is an explosive edge rusher, could give the Seminoles two big playmakers in their secondary. Good early defensive choices include two local four-star defensive linemen, ESPN 300 DE Nyjalik Kelly and four-star Aaron Hester.

Big 12 Rating: 1 of 10
Best Offensive Commitment: WR Jordan Hudson (#12)
Best defensive effort: L.B. Coby McKinsey (No. 110).

Lincoln Riley will have to figure out how to integrate the secondary into his offense with the playmakers he has assembled. The Sooners have one of the best classes of wide receiver in 2021 and will have even more top offensive weapons in 2022. The class includes three ESPN 300 wide receivers in the top five: Hudson with five stars, Talin Shettron and Luther Burden, a quick and soft target from Illinois. Adding to the offensive strength is three-time RB Raleek Brown, a sudden, attacking scatback who can be dangerous in space.

Best Offensive Commitment: RB Jaydon Blue (#82)
Best defensive commitment: Brian Allen Jr. (№ 77)

After leading one of the most potent offenses in college football as offensive coordinator at Alabama, Steve Sarkisian is now putting together his first full class as head coach at Texas. The attack dictates this group from the start. The Longhorns went to California to bring in quarterback Maalik Murphy, a prospect with little high school playing experience so far, but with impressive physical attributes, including a strong arm. The class also has a few key offensive targets out of state: Receiver Armani Winfield, in the top 15, and Blue, a fifth pick. Running back who is an explosive runner with good ball control. The defense hasn’t been neglected either, and the Longhorns have added one of the top defensive prospects in the state of Allen, a top-5 safety who is fluid and has good instincts.

Big Ten Titles: 3 of 14
Best Offensive Bet: QB Gavin Wimsatt (#171)
Best defensive prospect: L.B. Anthony Johnson (#98).

Rutgers brought back head coach Greg Schiano to try to get the program back on track after years of problems on the field and in recruiting. Early on, Schiano showed he could deliver again and Rutgers had a good start in recruiting. Keeping the best talent close to home will be the key to success. So far, he’s gotten some good commitments from the state, including three-star DE Kenny Fletcher. The Scarlet Knights went to Pennsylvania for the second Johnson ILB and returned to Florida, where Schiano had great success in his first stint, getting the support of four-star WR Amarion Brown. Wimsatt is a good asset to the Scarlet Knights, as he has good potential and a smooth delivery with the ability to throw with power.

Best offensive commitment: QB Tanner Bailey (#99)
Best defensive prospect: С. Landon Hallaby (#241)

Significant Offensive Commitments: RB Emmanuel Henderson (#16)
Best defensive commit: L.B. Robert Woodyard (No. 126).

Alabama didn’t break into the Top 25 until late May and then climbed to No. 1 in the 2021 class. This time around, Tide starts a little stronger with a group that isn’t strong quantitatively, but is strong qualitatively. Among the early pledges is freshman RB Henderson, an explosive runner with good vision. They also selected top QB-DT Ty Simpson. The son of a college coach, he has a compact and smooth flow. Woodyard, a top-10 prospect at home, is a key addition in the defense.

ESPN 300 commitments: 1

Big 12 Rating: 3 of 10
Best Offensive Commitment: QB Garret Rangel (#277)
Best defensive prospect: L.B. Gabe Brown (three stars).

The Cowboys have the third-best class in the Big 12 for 2021 and are in the same position to start 2022. Their class is led by a talented signal caller in Rangel, a player who shows good instincts and timing. His shaky hand could fit Mike Gundy’s offense. Several other offensive weapons are among the early promises, including two four-star running backs in Ollie Gordon and C.J. Brown, an in-state recruit who has the knack of becoming a productive and versatile backup.

ESPN 300 commitments: 1

ACC Rating: 2 of 14
Best offensive commitment: QB Peter Delaportas (#232)
Best defensive pledge: DT Kwan Williams (four stars)

From the start, the Eagles have assembled an impressive class of offensive players. Delaportas leads a class that also includes three-star WR Joseph Griffin Jr. and two three-star tight ends in Matt Ragan and Jeremiah Franklin. Three-star Ishmael Zamor is another verbal commitment. On defense, Williams and three-star CB Jamal Hood of Maryland are future starters.

Big 12 Rating: 4 of 10
Best Offensive Commitment: TE Kaian Roberts-Day (#242)
Best defensive effort: DT Cedric Roberts (three stars)

With the class surrounding ESPN 300 Roberts-Day, who can also project into the defense, four-star TE Cody Mladenka and versatile three-star TE Kelsey Johnson, the Bears will have no problem finding a very good end player in the future. The defensive line is a key component in 2022 for Dave Aranda and his team, and the Bears have early promise in Roberts and three-star ends in Carmello Jones and Kyler Jordan, who has a good first step, possesses excellent strength and can come out of this group as a sure thing.

ESPN 300 commitments: 0

Group 5. Location: 1
Top Offensive: WR Randy Masters (three stars)
Best defensive effort: DT Derrick Shepherd (four stars).

The Bearcats are coming off the best season on the field with a fast start in 2022, led by Shepard, three-star Segrey Graham (Sunshine State) and three-star DEs Cecil Doggett Jr. and Tyler Gillison. Running back Stefan Byrd is the poster boy for offense. Ethan Green has the perfect environment to thrive in this state.

Best offensive commitment: TE Keyan Burnett (#199)
Best defensive effort: CB Domani Jackson (#5)

Klay Helton put the Trojans back on the recruiting trail with a solid 2022 start including a trio of ESPN 300 commits. The second team benefited greatly from early commitments with the arrival of five-star Jackson and top-20 CB Fabian Ross. The quarterback of the class is three-star Devin Brown, a passer with good anticipation and touch. The Trojans continue to recruit in the Lone Star State, this time with three-star ILB Ty Kahn from Katie High’s power program.

Big Ten Titles: 4 of 14
Best Offensive Bet: QB Tay’shawn Trent (#211)
Best defensive pledge: CB William Johnson (#18)

The Wolverines drew the Big Ten’s No. 2 class for the 2021 cycle, and this time around they remain at the top of the conference from the start. Second place went to two super-powered pickups, Johnson and Kody Jones, another ESPN 300. Johnson is an important player, as he is not only one of the top three cornerbacks in the class, but also the best player in the state of Michigan. Jones, who has excellent speed, is credited as an athlete, but focuses on cornerbacks. TE Marlin Klein is a commitment to keep an eye on. Originally from Germany, he now plays high school football in Georgia. He is a 6-foot, 90-pound prospect with the promise and tools to become a versatile and physical offensive weapon.

ESPN 300 commitments: 2

SEC Rating: 5 of 14
Best offensive commitment: QB Sam Horn (No.160)
Best defensive commitment: С. Isaac Thompson (four stars)

The Tigers won several key battles with ATH Ja’Marion Wayne (ESPN 300), Thompson and three-star TE Max Whisner and OG Armand Membou. The staff has done a great job of building a strong relationship early on with Horn, a key newcomer from Georgia. As a passer, the ball can jump out of his hands and he can also be accurate.

ESPN 300 commitments: 2

SEC Rating: 6 of 14
Major offensive commits: OT Tony Livingston (#114)
Best defensive commitment: EN François Nolton (four stars)

Dan Mullen and his staff brought quality to 2022, led by ESPN 300 Lone Star State signal caller Nick Evers, who won the MVP award at the Under Armour camp in Dallas this spring. Livingston, who will be converted to a tight end, has a great opportunity for offensive development. Other four stars on the list are: WR Syveion Ellis, TE C.J. Hawkins and DE Francois Nolton.

Before mid-April, Florida coach Dan Mullen had two ESPN 300 sectionals in the 2022 class. Tim Heitman-USA Sports Today.

Major offensive commits: D’Andrew Chamblee (#229)
Best defensive effort: С. Miles Roser (No. 293)

State ownership is a must in Arkansas, and Sam Pittman and his staff are well on their way in 2022 with Chamblee and three-star TE Dax Courtney, RB James Joynter and LB Caden Henley all verbally ranked and in the top 10 in the state. Roser was a key out-of-state tackle, as was three-star athlete Rashod Dubion of Peach State, who should be a versatile weapon on the offensive side.

ESPN 300 commitments: 4

ACC Rating: 3 of 14
Best offensive commitment: DE Colleen Sadler (#109)
Best defensive prospect: N/A

As usual, the Tigers are strong in quality in 2022, led by ESPN’s 300-win Sadler and WR Adam Randall. Dabo Swinney and his team went to the Lone Star State to find the signal caller and defeated Cade Strawberry to lead Westlake High School to the Texas 6A title. Next to Sadler on the offensive line in the class is ESPN 300 OT Blake Miller of Ohio.

ESPN 300 commitments: 3

ACC Rating: 4 of 14
Best offensive commitment: WR Tychaun Chapman (#59)
Best defensive effort: CB Tayon Holloway (#228)

Mack Brown got the Tar Heels back on the recruiting trail, and he had some big wins at Virginia. Chapman, Holloway and three-star OG Trevyon Green continue to advance after the recent signing of five-star CB Tony Grimes (757). ESPN 300 OLB Malarkey Hamrick is a good catch for the interior lines in the state, which is where the Tar Heels excel.

ESPN 300 commitments: 1

Big Ten Titles: 5 of 14
Best Offensive Bet: QB Preston Howard (#284)
Best defensive prospect: LB Nyair Graham (three stars)

With Mike Locksley signing in the top 20 class, he continues to make noise on the recruiting trail, and Maryland’s 2022 class is off to a good start. This class is led by Howard, a player with a quick arm, good feet and exciting potential. The group’s second quarterback is Peach State’s A.J. Swann, who is a three-star. Garden State is key for the Terrapins, and the first wins in this cycle are three stars – Amari Clark and Graham. Three-star OLB Kellan Wyatt at state was a much-needed win.

ESPN 300 commitments: 0

SEC Rating: 8 of 14
Best offensive commitment: WR Dakota Jordan (three stars)
Best defensive effort: DT Jacarius Clayton (three stars)

The Bulldogs are very strong on the defensive side of the ball early in this cycle. Three-star players include Clayton, safeties Wesley Miller, Kaylon Griffin and Jourdan Thomas, and local OLB Khalid Moore. While the defense is the backbone of this class, the offense also has a nice asset with Jordan, a highly rated three-star receiver out of state.
