7. Temple The Owls finished off their 2013 class by signing four players in the days leading up to signing day.
8. Cincinnati The Bearcats finished the 2013 class by getting commitments from six players, including three-star athlete Tshumbi Johnson.
1. Ohio State
The additions of five-star Vonn Bell and four-star James Clark on National Signing Day cement what is one of the nation's top classes in 2013.
The Wolverines wrapped up their class early and had few signing day fireworks, but that had a class that finished comfortable in the top 10 nationally.
Three-star Louisiana athlete Trevell Dixon jumped back into the fold on signing day after flirting with Arizona State and capped a strong collection of prospects headed to Lincoln.
4. Michigan State
The Spartans got much stronger at linebacker and running back with this class, and they also brought in their quarterback of the future in four-star Damion Terry.
Head coach Kevin Wilson brought in more four-star recruits in this class alone than his predecessors did in the previous 11 combined. Florida three-star running back Daryl Chestnut was a big signing day addition.
6. Penn State
It has been a rough year for the Nittany Lions' program, but their 2013 class, headed up by five-star quarterback Christian Hackenberg, suggests better things for the future in State College.
Adding JUCO quarterback Tanner McEvoy late complements the job Gary Andersen and his staff did in keeping the majority of their commits in-place through the coaching transition.
9. Northwestern Matt Alviti is the perfect quarterback for the Wildcats offense, and he comes in with a class that will make Northwestern stronger at wide receiver, defensive back and on the offensive line.
The addition on signing day eve of Chicago linebacker Reggie Spearman will leave Hawkeyes fans more optimistic about this class, which lacks any four- or five-star signees.
9. Iowa State
The story of the Iowa State class is the beef along the offensive front. Headliner Jake Campos leads the way, with four other three-stars joining him in that standout offensive line group.
10. Kansas State
Coach Bill Snyder and Kansas State have always played the recruiting game to a different beat. As they have in years past, the Wildcats signed a heavy dose of JUCOs and standout defensive end Tanner Wood out of Conway Springs (Kan.).
It was an outstanding signing day for the Bruins, who have the No. 1 class in the conference. Former USC commit Kylie Fitts committed on Tuesday night and the news continues to be good with four-star quarterback Asiantii Woulard committing Wednesday. Five-star Eddie Vanderdoes' decision still looms.
No way around it, the Trojans had a bad few days leading up to signing day with multiple de-commits from five-star Jalen Ramsey and others. USC missed out on Matthew Thomas on signing day. But getting Quinton Powell soothes things a little bit and don't forget USC already has five five-stars in the class.
Talk about a strong finish. At one point, Oregon's biggest signing-day victory looked to be holding on to the previously committed Tyrell Robinson and Tyree Robinson. The Ducks held off Washington to secure the two four-star prospects. Then the other dominoes started falling. The Ducks landed four-star tackle Cameron Hunt, a former California commit who projects to make a serious impact, and came out of nowhere to steal former USC commit Torrodney Prevot.
Losing Hunt to Oregon wasn't good for the Golden Bears, and the class as a whole was about what everyone expected, considering the circumstances. Despite a postseason coaching change, Cal locked up a trio of four-star players, including quarterback Jared Goff, a longtime commit.
6. Arizona State
The Sun Devils lost a quarterback at the last second when Tennessee flipped Josh Dobbs. Arizona State wasn't given enough notice to explore other options at the position, but in the end, it wasn't a crippling blow to a class that features some decent depth and instant-impact-type junior college players. ASU also added three-star ATH Marcus Ball later in the day.
7. Arizona Rich Rodriguez & Co. were quiet on signing day. In fact, the biggest waves Arizona made were courtesy of West Virginia poaching a pair of its recruits in Georgia Military College teammates Mario Alford and Brandon Golson. It wasn't a great start to the day for the Wildcats, but they received letters of intent from their top high school commitments, including four-star quarterback Anu Solomon. The Wildcats also added three-star quarterback Khari McGee, but they could look to switch his position somewhere down the road.
It was a relatively quiet day for Utah, which signed Sese Ianu early in the day. That's big because he could be special for the Utes. Utah did an outstanding job across the board in the junior college ranks and Harrison Handley could be a sleeper in the coming years.
8. Oregon State
Oregon State's surprise commitment actually happened the night before signing day, when cornerback Charles Okonkwo flipped from San Diego State. Okonkwo was considered a backup plan for L.J. Moore, but he brings size and instinct to a class headlined by defensive backs, most notably four-star corner Dashon Hunt.
It was a slow signing day for the Cardinal, but that was expected. Four four-star prospects lead the way for Stanford, which had the top-rated Pac-12 class last season but signed only 12 prospects this recruiting cycle. Quarterback Ryan Burns and wide receiver Francis Owusu could be a killer combination.
The coaching change certainly didn't help, but the Buffs' 4-21 record over the past two years is probably a bigger reason for their weak class. The positive spin is that 11 of Colorado's 17 additions hail from California, which could mean the school's move to the Pac-12 is paying off. The Buffs' last addition was an important one, because lockdown corner Chidobe Awuzie adds some much-speeded to the defensive backfield.
All the Crimson Tide did was follow up their national championship victory last month with their fifth recruiting national championship in the past six years. Among the big pickups were five-star linebacker Reuben Foster and signing-day commitment Alvin Kamara.
The Gators came into the day with the nation's top class and added more talent in the form of four-star defensive tackle Jaynard Bostwick. The Gators missed out on Tashawn Bower, but finishing in the top five nationally is a win for coach Will Muschamp.
Bower flipped from Auburn to Florida but ultimately ended up signing with the Tigers, capping an excellent class of defensive linemen. Bower joins fellow four-star defensive lineman Greg Gilmore and five-star defensive end Frank Herron. The Tigers are still hoping to add late signee Priest Willis, but even without him they have a terrific class.
4. Ole Miss
The Rebels were the talk of the nation on signing day after landing the nation's No. 1 player, Robert Nkemdiche, first thing Wednesday morning. They lost four-star Elijah Daniel and couldn't flip five-star Chris Jones, but the Rebels were the surprise of the signing season after brigning in a great class.
5. Texas A&M
The Aggies finished their class with four-star defensive end Daeshon Hall, completing an excellent 2013 cycle. The final numbers for the class are still sort of in flux, but Texas A&M figures to add around 30 players from this year's class.
Just a few weeks ago, it looked as if the Tigers were headed for a disastrous signing day. But all those concerns were left in the dust on Wednesday. Five-stars Carl Lawson and Montravius Adams both signed with the Tigers, as did Daniel, who started the day as an Ole Miss commit.
Even though they signed more than 30 players, it was sort of a tough day for the Bulldogs. They missed out on five-star Laremy Tunsil, as well as Adams, and missed late target George Adeosun. Despite the letdowns, the Bulldogs finished with a top-15 class nationally and picked up a late commitment from in-state talent Davin Bellamy.
8. South Carolina The Gamecocks built a very nice class early and hung on through signing day. South Carolina missed out on target Yannick Ngakoue but added wide receiver Skai Moore to close with a bang.
The early news wasn't good for the Vols as they missed on five-star defensive back Vonn Bell, but it didn't take long for them to recover. Tennesse closed with three-stars Malik Brown, Joshua Dobbs and Jaylen Miller to round out a good first cycle for the new coaching staff.
11. Mississippi State
The biggest news of the day for the Bulldogs came when five-star Chris Jones decided to stick by the school that discovered him. Jones was being wooed by pretty much every school in the SEC, so he is a huge addition for the Bulldogs. Late addition four-star Fred Ross was also a major coup.
What was expected to be a joyful day for the Hawgs turned into a day of concern after four-star running back Alex Collins failed to fax in his letter of intent. Collins' letter is still MIA, but the Razorbacks faithful can rejoice after landing four-star offensive lineman Denver Kirkland from Miami.
The Wildcats made up a ton of ground over the last month of the cycle and completed it by adding four-star DE Jason Hatcher and three-star wide receiver Ryan Timmons. Missing out on Asiantii Woulard hurt, but given where the class was when Mark Stoops took over, signing day was a success for Kentucky.
The Tigers lagged behind the rest of the SEC in the rankings on Wednesday, adding two two-star prospects to the class. Chase Abbington is the lone four-star player in a class that lacks star power.
