College football teams are already close to wrapping up their 2018 recruiting classes when the traditional signing period opens Wednesday. The Tide were ranked No. 7 in 247sports's composite class rankings; the last seven seasons, they've finished with the No. 1 class. Georgia not only held on to the No. 1 class ranking, but demolished the competition adding five-star Tyson Campbell, ESPN 300 receiver Tommy Bush and flipping ESPN 300 linebackers Quay Walker from Alabama, and Otis Reese from MI. All three again had stellar classes, led by Ohio State, which was second and nabbed No. 1 offensive tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere.

In addition to Campbell, Georgia convinced several other key prospects to back off their verbal commitment and join the Bulldogs. Quay Walker is a 6-foot-3, 218-pound linebacker who endeared himself to Georgia fans not just by picking the Bulldogs but also by picking up a Tennessee hat - was he about to head to Knoxville?!-then flinging it to the side. Not bad, but considering coach Jim Harbaugh's first two full classes in Ann Arbor were top-five level this has to qualify as a disappointing recruiting year for the Wolverines. That made for a quiet signing day for most schools. The Seminoles picked up Wednesday signatures from in-state ESPN 300 defensive lineman Malcolm Lamar, ESPN 300 athlete Tre'Shaun Harrison, a Seattle native further accentuated Taggart's West Coast connections. Seated to his right was his mother, wearing an Alabama sweatshirt and a Tennessee knit hat.

Texas came in third, with its best class in years.

Former 'Grid Girl' talks about time on the track
Then they came for the walk-on girls, and the Formula One fans did not speak out, because they find darts a bit on the slow side. Lauda slammed the notion that the existence of grid girls makes it harder for women to succeed in other areas of motor racing.

As soon as Copeland grabbed a Florida hat and announced he would play for the Gators rather than Alabama or Tennessee, Copeland's mother left the table. Clemson also was solidly in the top 10 despite a small, yet talented class. Mike Riley's class was imploding when he was sacked and ranked No. 89 in the 247Sports.com composite team rankings.

Andrew Chatfield kicked it off at American Heritage.

Florida State could push to the finish with a top 10 class.
