    College football recruiting rankings update as of September 28, 2016. Ohio State sits at No. 1 despite suffering a 4-star decommitment.


    Well, even when they lose commits, the Buckeyes are unshaken. After 4-star quarterback and long-time Ohio State fan Danny Clark decommitted from Urban Meyer’s team, the Buckeyes l0st 194 recruiting points but still remained at No. 1 in the 2017 class rankings.

    LSU is at No. 6 again, but it easily could have been a couple of months away from a surge into the top five. It still could be, though that road got a lot harder when the Tigers fired Les Miles on Sunday after a 2-2 start to the season. Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron was named interim head coach and has already reached out to the LSU commits, but the departure of the Mad Hatter was not easy news to hear.

    Five-star prospect and Baton Rouge native Dylan Moses, the No. 1 outside linebacker and No. 6 overall player in the country, seemed poised to re-join the Tigers’ class but has pushed his commitment date back on the heels of Miles’ firing.

    Moses is visiting Alabama this weekend when the Crimson Tide host Kentucky, and Nick Saban’s team isn’t the only one with big visits on Saturday. Jim Harbaugh’s Wolverines, who currently sit at No. 8, are set to host 5-star prospects Baron Browning and Alex Leatherwood, in addition to a few other offensive line targets when Wisconsin visits Ann Arbor.

    As far as actual movement in the rankings, Michigan State and Arizona switched places at Nos. 17 and 18, respectively. Washington broke out of a tie with Iowa at No. 24 to get to No. 20 in the rankings. And North Carolina fell from No. 22 to No. 25.

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