Notre Dame led the non-"Big Six" schools in recruiting, finishing at No. 14 in the Rivals.com team rankings after National Signing Day. Here's a look at the top six recruiting classes outside the "Big Six" conferences.
Headliner: The Cougars landed the nation's top quarterback prospect in Jake Heaps.
Sleeper:Joshua Quezada is a versatile running back prospect from California that does everything well.
There's a full boat headed to Provo, and it's a solid group from top to bottom. BYU landed the nation's top QB prospect in Jake Heaps, and there's no question he helped the recruiting cause for the Cougars. Like so many before him, Heaps has a chance to put up huge numbers. Wide receiver Ross Apo and defensive end Bronson Kaufusi are two other four-star prospects headed to BYU. Standouts like running back Algrenon Brown, defensive ends Alani Fua and Kona Schwenke and defensive tackle Graham Rowley will add needed depth.
