Top classes of Miami, USC filling needs

It's the time of year that most of college football's elite programs have started formulating the nucleus of their 2008 recruiting class.

As we have stated before, we are not huge fans of ranking recruiting classes at this point because so much can happen between now and national signing day, which this year is Feb. 6, 2008. Recruiting is a marathon, not a sprint, and the reality is that you will never truly know just how good a recruiting class is until about two or three years down the road.
