Five-stars: 2. DT Montravius Adams, DE Carl Lawson.
Four-stars: 9. RB Cameron Artis-Payne, DT Ben Bradley, DE Elijah Daniel, RB Jonathan Ford, QB Jeremy Johnson, OL Deon Mix, WR Earnest Robinson, ATH Jason Smith, WR Tony Stevens.
Average stars: 3.57
Instant impact: Lawson. There is not a more disruptive edge rusher in this class than the five-star defensive end.
Bottom line: No team got as much bang for their buck on the defensive line as Auburn, thanks to Signing Day pickups of the five-star Adams and the four-star Daniel to go along with Lawson and Bradley. With defensive line play so important in the SEC, adding two five-stars and two four-stars will certainly bolster the Tigers' front seven.

Five-stars: 5. DT Kenny Bigelow, QB Max Browne, DB Su'a Cravens, RB Ty Isaac, DB Leon McQuay III.
Four-stars: 7. RB Justin Davis, OL Nico Falah, DB Chris Hawkins, LB Michael Hutchings, WR Steven Mitchell, LB Quinton Powell, OL Khaliel Rodgers.
Average stars: 4.42
Instant impact: Defensive tackle Kenny Bigelow will play in the NFL one day, if he can prove to be an every-down lineman
Bottom line: At one point, USC had what looked like an insurmountable lead in the national team rankings. As Signing Day drew near, however, the Trojans suffered a wave of de-commitments. Although it is a very small class, USC still managed to sign more five-star prospects than any other program.
Total signed: 24
Four-stars: 7. DB Hatari Byrd, RB Keith Ford, DT Kerrick Huggins, QB Cody Thomas, DE D.J. Ward, DB L.J. Moore, ATH Stanvon Taylor Three-stars: 14
Average stars: 3.17
Instant impact: Ford. The Sooners have depth at running back, but Ford is the type of freshman who may be too talented to redshirt.
Bottom line: The Sooners had a slow start to the 2013 class, but rallied in the final two months to move up in the national team rankings. A program with Oklahoma's tradition expects to finish in the top 10 every year. That was not the case in 2013, but the signing day addition of Moore will allow the Sooners to transition into the 2014 class on a high note.
Total signed: 22
Four-stars: 8. LB Larenz Bryant, ATH Pharoh Cooper, DT Kelsey Griffin, QB Connor Mitch, LB Skai Moore, OL D.J. Park, OL Na'Ty Rodgers, RB David Williams Three-stars: 14.
Average stars: 3.36
Instant impact: Williams. With Marcus Lattimore off to the NFL, the Gamecocks could use immediate backfield help.
Bottom line: The Signing Day addition of Moore may prove to be the biggest pickup in this class. He still has some physical development before he reaches full potential, but the four-star linebacker knows how to make plays. The Gamecocks added six linebackers, addressing a big defensive need.
Total signed: 25.
Four-stars: 5. LB Josh Banderas, DE Randy Gregory, LB Marcus Newby, RB Terrell Newby, RB Adam Taylor.
Average stars: 3.16
Instant impact: Terrell Newby. The explosive athlete's versatility should allow him to see the field early in Lincoln.
Bottom line: Nebraska quietly put together a really solid class, out-pacing all but Ohio State and Michigan in the Big Ten. The Huskers made the biggest additions to their roster at running back, where Newby and Taylor each bring something a little different to the table. Banderas is a Cornhusker legacy who understands the Blackshirts tradition and has the talent to play early.
Total signed: 26
Four-stars: 5. LB Nigel Bowden, WR Jordan Cunningham, LB Zach Cunningham, QB Johnathon McCrary, TE Mitchell Parsons Three-stars: 20.
Average stars: 3.15
Instant impact: Cunningham. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound linebacker tallied 194 tackles, including 43 for loss, as a senior.
Bottom line: Head coach James Franklin told Rivals.com on Wednesday that Vanderbilt is becoming a "sexy" name on the recruiting trail, and the 2013 class backs his claim. Just a few years ago, a top-20 class for the Commodores was a pipe dream, but Franklin has them recruiting on par with the better teams in the SEC.
Total signed: 21
Four-stars: 5. DE Jason Carr, WR Paul Harris, WR Marquez North, ATH Jalen Reeves-Maybin, OL Austin Sanders.
Average stars: 3.19
Instant impact: North. When he is healthy and focused, the 6-foot-3, 205-pounder can be as good as any receiver in this class.
Bottom line: The Volunteers did not make as big of a splash on Signing Day as they had hoped, but adding Dobbs helps secure the quarterback position in Knoxville. For a team that went through a rough 2012 season and a long coaching search, finishing in the top 20 has to be considered a win for Butch Jones and Co.
Total signed: 19
Five-stars: 1. Thomas Tyner Four-stars: 7. WR Devon Allen, WR Darren Carrington, OL Cameron Hunt, DE Torrodney Prevot, ATH Tyree Robinson, ATH Tyrell Robinson, OL Evan Voeller Three-stars: 7.
Average stars: 3.26
Instant impact: Tyner. Known for his big play ability and game-breaking speed, he also has the size to take the pounding.
Bottom line: Another school that had to overcome a coaching change, Oregon definitely took their lumps and lost some good prospects in the aftermath of Chip Kelly's late decision to bolt for the NFL, but there are good prospects in this class, especially at the skill positions. The addition of Prevot was one of the biggest surprises of Signing Day.
Total signed: 19
Five-stars: 1 DB Kendall Fuller Four-stars: 3. DB Holland Fisher, QB Bucky Hodges, DE Wyatt Teller Three-stars: 15.
Average stars: 3.26
Instant impact: Fuller. The five-star cornerback is a Hokies legacy and has the skill set to see the field immediately in Blacksburg.
Bottom line: highlight of the 2013 class for Virginia Tech was landing three Rivals100 prospects in Fuller, Teller and Fisher. The Hokies closed out their class fairly early and did not stray far from home -- 15 of the 20 signees hail from the state of Virginia.
Total signed: 22
Five-stars: 1. DE Chris Jones.
Four-stars: 2. WR Fred Ross, QB Cord Sandberg.
Average stars: 3.04
Instant impact: Jones. The five-star defensive end proved at the Under Armour All-American Game he is a disruptive force.
Bottom line: While its in-state foe Ole Miss was grabbing most of the Signing Day headlines, Mississippi State was pulling off several nice moves. It started the night before when they nabbed the four-star Ross from Oklahoma State, and then continued on Signing Day when they fended off the Rebels to hold onto Jones.
Total signed: 15
Four-stars: 9. DB Antwuan Davis, LB Deoundrei Davis, OL Rami Hammad, OL Darius James, WR Jake Oliver, OL Kent Perkins, DE Jake Raulerson, QB Tyrone Swoopes, WR Jacorey Warrick.
Average stars: 3.60
Instant impact: Perkins. The four-star's versatility may allow for him to be a rare freshman contributor on the offensive line.
Bottom line: The Longhorns are used to finishing in the top five of the national team rankings, but a low number of scholarship offers available in the 2013 class and stronger competition from the likes of Texas A&M and others for in-state prospects makes this one of Mack Brown's lowest-ranked classes of all-time.
Total signed: 28
Four-stars: 2. WR Shelton Gibson, LB Darrien Howard.
Average stars: 2.96
Instant impact: Gibson. One of the nation's most explosive players, he could help out immediately on offense and in the return game.
Bottom line: With just two four-star prospects in the class, the Mountaineers are not bringing in an eye-popping group, but what they lack in star power they make up for in quality. Howard joins Gibson as the only four-stars in the class, and is a big, athletic linebacker who could one day move down to defensive end or even tackle.
