Overachievers and underachievers in the 2021 class


Wednesday February 3 is National Signing Day. While some high profile prospects will let the world know where they’re headed, most of the 2021 rookies finalized things with the school of their choice during the early signing period in December.

Alabama are expected to finish the 2021 roster with the best class ever as Nick Saban’s squad could score north of 325 points on the industry-generated 247Sports Composite. Just behind them in the standings is the state of Ohio, which just played the Crimson Tide for a national title. Georgia comes in at No. 3, who signed the No. 1 class in 2020. Sitting at No. 4 is LSU with Clemson a spot behind them at No. 5 in the rankings.

It’s no surprise to see these five college footballers stand out in this cycle when it comes to rankings, as the best kids often want to play for the best programs. That’s why at 247Sports we wanted to highlight something else as we close the door on the Class of 2021: the overachievers and the underachievers.

These are the schools that exceed expectations during a recruiting cycle like no other or have failed to meet the expectations of their fan base. All rankings are via the 247Sports Composite Team Recruitment Rankings and are current at time of publication on Tuesday afternoon.
