Tide rises again
Alabama moves into the top spot, while Notre Dame, Stanford make big moves
While experience, knowledge, and intensive research, including countless hours of film study, can help predict how good a player may be, only time can truly tell who is the real deal and who is not.
The same can be said for recruiting classes.
Rewinding four years ago, LSU was the No. 1 team. While the Tigers' class was very good, it's hard not to move Alabama up one spot from No. 2 to the top spot considering many in the Tide's 2009 class have won three national championships. Seven of our original top 10 remain, but with hindsight now being 20/20, we go back and re-rank the top 10 classes for 2008.
How would you re-rank the top 10 classes from 2009? Use #SigningDay and give us your revised class rankings.
