    Ohio State’s loss turned out to be the Cornhuskers’ gain. When 4-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey decommitted from the Buckeyes, Urban Meyer’s team managed to stay put at No. 4.

    However, when Lindsey decided to spend his college career in Lincoln, Nebraska found itself at No. 25 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings.

    Despite losing a pledge from 3-star kicker Brandon Ruiz, Alabama still finds itself at the top with the nation’s No. 1 class.

    There were two teams that climbed their way up from the bottom half of the rankings, though. Michigan State picked up a commitment from 4-star outside linebacker Antjuan Simmons and moved up to No. 18.

    And after Louisville hired Florida offensive line coach Mike Summers to the same position, the Cardinals beat out the Gators for the pledge of 4-star offensive guard Caleb Chandler. Louisville now sits at No. 20.

    Below are the current top 25 teams for the college football recruiting rankings.
