Several local student-athletes signed to continue their athletic careers Wednesday during National Signing Day.

With the additions of 5-star cornerback Tyson Campbell and 4-star linebackers Quay Walker and Otis Reese, Georgia officially locked up the nation's No.1 overall recruiting class using the 247Sports Composite rankings.

We're still learning how college football's inaugural early signing period is affecting the sport (including Wednesday's traditional signing day), but two interesting case studies have Florida ties.Start with USF, which signed pretty much a full clas.

Ohio State has two five-star prospects and 19 four-star talents, while Georgia has six five-star prospects and 12 four-star talents. Their recruiting classes remain at the top of the sport. The Bulldogs edged out Ohio State, who also add a 5-star prospect and a 4-star outside linebacker.


(27) Baylor: Matt Rhule pieced together a solid class in his first full recruiting cycle with the Bears, signing four-star quarterback Gerry Bohanan (Earle, Ark.) and four-star receiver Tyquan Thornton (Miami, Fla.) in December.

Most of the top recruits already committed, however.

Rutgers' biggest signee wasn't a recruit, but former Bergen Catholic coach Nunzio Campanile, who agreed to join coach Chris Ash's staff as an assistant, coaching the running backs.
