Alabama has been the story of college football's second season for the past three classes. The Crimson Tide landed the best recruiting class in 2014, 2013 and 2012, so it's safe to say they'll make headlines again in 2015. Will new coaches at Texas and USC vault the Longhorns and Trojans back into the national recruiting headlines? We take a look at the 10 teams that will dominate the Class of 2015 picture..

1. Alabama Crimson Tide
Their recruiting machine shows no signs of slowing down, so look for the Crimson Tide to remain a fixture in national headlines for the 2015 class. The Tide have gotten off to a great start, landing commitments from two top 30 players in Columbus (Ga.) Carver defensive end Mekhi Brown and Prichard (Ala.) Vigor running back DeSherrius Flowers. As in years past, Alabama has cast a national net but with a focus on the Southeast. Nick Saban remains one of the few coaches who can walk into high schools anywhere in the country and turn heads. His chase for a fourth straight No. 1 recruiting class will be the biggest storyline to follow this year.
