National Signing Day for the Class of 2013 is more than 10 months away, but that has not stopped a number of teams from already loading up on current juniors.
Texas, Michigan and Alabama have led the way when it comes to recruiting the 2013 class. The trio of schools has recruited aggressively and has already locked some of the nation's top players.
Giving a slight nod to quality over quantity, as teams have plenty of time to bolster their ranks, MaxPreps takes a look at the Top 20 recruiting classes for 2013.
Early 2013 Top 20 Recruiting Classes
1. TexasNumber of verbal commitments:
Key recruit: Tyrone SwoopesStill on the board: Marcell HarrisNext year's name to know: Hoza ScottFreshman to follow: Zach RogersComment:
Mack Brown and staff tried a slightly different approach on the trail this year: Not pressuring for commitments on junior days in February. Since then, the Longhorns have been stockpiling talent at nearly all positions. In Swoopes and Ricky Seals-Jones, Texas gets two of the most impressive athletes in the class. The current haul of offensive linemen rivals Michigan's impressive group. Texas will still add to its secondary and may go out of state to do so.
