Who are the Early Leaders in Class of 2020 Recruiting?

While we have not completely closed the book on the recruiting Class of 2019, it’s never too early to look ahead to next year. As the latest list of the top 100 recruits from the Class of 2020 was posted on TOM yesterday, I noticed that plenty of top juniors have made the college plans known. In fact, 13 of the top 20 juniors have committed to a college, so some of their recruiting classes have started to take shape. The list itself is sort of anti-climatic as if you follow recruiting closely, you have no doubt about which team will currently reside in the number one spot. Two through ten is still anyone’s guess and there are plenty of teams with legitimate arguments for a place in the top ten.

When looking so far ahead at evaluating recruiting classes, the ones that have gotten the most consideration are the ones with multiple commitments. So, for now, a school like Penn State that only has one commitment from a junior (albeit a highly talented, high-profile wrestler) is not under consideration.
