National Signing Day recap for Houston & Texas colleges

HOUSTON - It's the first time that major college football has had two signing periods, thanks to changes to the recruiting calendar. The vast majority of top prospects signed back in December and most FBS schools had signed the bulk of their classes. That made for a quiet signing day for most schools.

At a national level, Georgia finished their 2018 recruiting class with a flourish and laid claim to the No. 1 ranking on national signing day.

Ohio State finished with the second-ranked class, topped with five-star offensive lineman Nicholas Petit-Frere from Tampa, Florida.

Texas came in third, with its best class in years. Coach Tom Herman cleaned up in state, signing 10 of the top-20 ranked recruits in the Lone Star State.

Penn State and Clemson, which signed the top-rated player in the state of Alabama on signing day, rounded out the top five in 247's composite rankings.

Former Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, now at Texas A&M, got the Aggies into the Top 20, flipping defensive lineman Bobby Brown away from an Alabama verbal commitment.
