Alabama leapfrogs Clemson for the top-rated 2020 recruiting class
For a while now, Clemson has held the No. 1 spot in the 247Sports rankings of top 2020 recruiting classes.
However, after landing a commitment from 4-star OL Javion Cohen on Wednesday (with a bit of Auburn drama, it should be noted), the Alabama Crimson Tide are now the top team.
Per the 247Sports rankings, the Tide now have 3 5-star players and a whopping 17 4-star athletes in their 2020 class. Clemson, on the other hand, has 6 5-star players, but only 9 4-star guys.
Clemson is trending positively for a number of remaining 5-star players, though, including the top-2 uncommitted athletes — 5-star ILB Justin Flowe and 5-star SDE Jordan Burch.
Who will have the top class when all is said and done? We’ll find out soon enough.
