College Football Recruiting Rankings – Jan. 8, 2017


College football recruiting rankings update as of Jan. 8, 2017, following the 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.


On Saturday, the 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl went down, and we were given a sneak peak at the future of college football.

There were recruits who committed at the game, but let’s start with the one who moved the Bruins into the top 25. Five-star cornerback Darnay Holmes turned down Ohio State to stay close to home, as he committed to UCLA. Jim Mora’s team moved to No. 23 in the 2017 class rankings, knocking Pac-12 foe Arizona from the top 25.

While it’s still on the outside looking in, Stanford did move all the way up to No. 29 when 5-star offensive tackle Foster Sarell became the Cardinal’s ninth total commit. David Shaw’s staff will now combine Sarell, the nation’s No. 1 offensive tackle, with the country’s No. 2 offensive tackle, Walker Little. Stanford also has 5-star quarterback Davis Mills.

It continued to be quite a day for the Pac-12. Clay Helton’s Trojans managed to lure 4-star safety Bubba Bolden back into their class. That allowed USC to jump up two spots to No. 14.

While the Wolverines didn’t move from their spot at No. 3, they did pick up a huge commitment from 4-star offensive tackle Chuck Filiaga.

Of course, Ohio State did make a move up the rankings when it landed 5-star athlete Jeffrey Okudah. The Buckeyes slid up from No. 5 to No. 4, passing Oklahoma in the process. Coincidentally, the Sooners were one of the teams Ohio State beat out for Okudah’s pledge.

Below are the current top 25 teams for the college football recruiting rankings.
