Cover 3: Times are a-changing in college football
1. A new No. 1 is coming
"The streak has to end eventually. Alabama has had an unprecedented run with seven consecutive No. 1 recruiting classes according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, but this is the year it comes to an end."
"The No. 1 recruiter in college football currently is Dennis Johnson, or as LSU head coach Ed Orgeron affectionately calls him, "Meatball." The guy was a graduate assistant that got promoted to a full-time coach when Orgeron got the job and clearly the head man knew what he was doing. Johnson – the same guy that closed on K'Lavon Chaisson to steal him from Texas late in the process of the last cycle – has landed Adam Anderson, a potential five-star who was once committed to Georgia out of Georgia. He's also landed Jarell Cherry, a long, athletic outside linebacker out of Dallas. So he's doing work outside of the friendly confines of Louisiana."
