Before the summer camp season begins around the football world, ESPN released their first team rankings for the 2018 recruiting class. Â Mark Stoops’ 2018 class is ranked No. 22Â by the Worldwide Leader in Sports. Â Alabama is currently ranked No. 25.
Stoops only has six commits so far in the 2018 class, headlined by dual-threat quarterback Jarren Williams and defensive end Alex Reigelsperger. Â Both are four-star recruits ranked in the Top 300 of their class; Reigelsperger is No. 147 and Williams is No. 257 overall.
Obviously, much will change before the recruiting calendar year comes to a close ten months from now on National Signing Day. Â If the class can finish better than No. 22, it will be the highest-ranked recruit class in school history, surpassing the 2014 class. Â A look at how Stoops’ class stacks up in all four major recruiting services:
- ESPN: 22
- 247 Composite: 23
- Rivals: 21
