We take a look back at signing day 2014.
Surprise of the Day
This wasn't a shocker and Alabama was the school Rashaan Evans wanted to go to, but many felt there was just too many things going for Auburn. Kirby Smart was the lead recruiter and he did an excellent job as did Lance Thompson, Nick Saban, and other Alabama staffers convincing Evans that Tuscaloosa was the best place for him. UCLA hung around, but Auburn was thought to be the leader by many due to his location, AU being the school his parents attended, and his relationship with the coaches and players there - Alabama won out in the end for the top prospect in Alabama and the No. 9 prospect in the country.
UF is looking to change up their offensive scheme to more of a spread and system and Harris could be dangerous at quarterback. He ran the system in high school, he won two state titles, and he is going to fun to watch with the ball in his hands.
The biggest signing day name was Ermon Lane, a five-star receiver that all expected to ink with FSU. Roderick Johnson, one of the top uncommitted offensive lineman in the country chose the Noles, and Derrick Kelly, a hometown offensive tackle with so much upside signed with Florida State over Florida and LSU.
Derrick Nnadi, a four-star defensive tackle out of Virginia inked with the Noles over Virginia Tech.
FSU closed strong to finish with the No. 3 class in the country.
UGA finished 12 in the rankings and McClendon had a lot to do with the Bulldogs' success in 2014.
He was the lead recruiter for five stars Lorenzo Carter and Sony Michel, four stars Nick Chubb, Isaiah Wynn, Keyon Brown, Kendall Baker, and three stars Gilbert Johnson, Isaiah McKenzie, and Shattle Fenteng.
He has been talked about for a few years and one of the top up and coming recruiters, this year he showed that talk is true.
This is one that is not debatable. It is Alabama, again.
The Crimson Tide entered the day at the top and it finished the day in the same spot. It signed a total of 26 in 2014 including seven five-star prospects and 13 four stars.
LSU finished second, but it wasn't close. Alabama finished with 5,222 points and LSU had 4,411.
Biggest Signing Day Steal
This is something that is always debatable, but many are talking about Isaiah McKenzie to Georgia.
That is the one we go with here because of the impact he could have and just how of this went down. Scout ranks McKenzie as a three-star while other networks see him as a four.
He is dynamic in the return game and he will make a significant impact there immediately. He has never even stepped foot in Athens, Ga., but playing with his close friend/teammate Sony Michel led him to select UGA over Florida, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, and Virginia Tech.
Loo for Georgia to use McKenzie on special teams first, then to find ways to get him the ball at slot receiver and possibly out of the backfield.
It has to be Tennessee. The Vols finished with a top five class, No. 4 to be exact, and it signed 32 prospects.
Butch Jones put together his first full class as the UT head coach and it was a very good one. No five stars, but seventeen four stars - that is huge.
Kentucky and North Carolina State need to be mentioned here too. Kentucky started around No. 16 on Wednesday, but finished at No. 21. That is a great class for Mark Stoops. N.C. State was winless in the ACC last season, but recruited well and finished No. 26 in the country.
Best Start for 2015
This has to be talked about because it is a national headline. It happened on signing day 2014 and it will have a big impact on Clemson's 2015 class. It is off to a great start with seven commitments already.
