About three months into the early signing period, we saw 254 potential Sportzshala 300 customers announce their commitments, and as we get closer to December, some interesting storylines are emerging.
That includes one of the most sought-after quarterbacks, Arch Manning, who was drunk and dined by Texas and now helps the Longhorns recruit. We’ve seen new coaches set up unprecedented scores in their first full recruiting sessions, some surprise teams hit the top 25, and we’ve already seen several conferences top the rankings.
The SEC currently leads all conferences with 96 Sportzshala 300 attendees, followed by the ACC with 55, the Big Ten with 36, the Big 12 with 34, and the Pac-12 with just 27 Sportzshala 300s.
While there aren’t many Sportzshala 300 recruits left unfinished, that doesn’t mean it won’t be interesting for a few months. Lest you get bored, here are 10 storylines — from the unfulfilled five stars to the influence of the coach carousel — that have unfolded and will continue to play out as December approaches.
Four five stars still on the board
There are a total of 13 five-star players in this class, led by quarterbacks Malachi Nelson (USC), Arch Manning (Texas) and Dante Moore (Oregon).
