Offensive Position Recruiting Rankings
QUARTERBACK

1. Florida State
Any concern about Jameis Winston flipping to Stanford or any other program is now moot since he signed with the Seminoles. It is a humongous relief for Florida State fans but he still might never play college football if he gets drafted high enough by Major League Baseball. Winston is a phenomenal quarterback who is an outstanding pocket passer. He can pretty much do it all. Maguire is also a nice addition who could be one of the sleepers in this class.

2. Washington
The Huskies landed the top quarterback class in the nation but Miles nearly switched to USC so it was close to not happening. Miles was outstanding at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and Lindquist shined at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. Both are fantastic passers who can also run when forced out of the pocket.

3. Notre Dame
Kiel, a five-star prospect, is the top-rated pro-style quarterback in the class by Rivals.com. He had been committed to Indiana, then flipped to LSU and signed with Notre Dame, which is a huge pickup for the Irish. Kiel has all the tools to be a special college quarterback.

4. Purdue
The Boilermakers signed three quarterbacks and the numbers not only provide depth in coming year, but healthy competition as well. All three are three-star prospects and Marshall is the highest-rated among dual-threat quarterbacks.

5. Oregon
Rodrigues had a fantastic senior season, throwing for more than 2,000 yards and 26 touchdowns. However, he broke his leg and his rehab will be important this off-season. He fits in well in Oregon's offense. Lockie could be one of the sleeper quarterbacks in this class.
RUNNING BACK
U7o3gw4xkhuyox1few0g
Xnmus9c65ibnolqygs5t
1. Georgia
The Bulldogs loaded up at running back with Gurley and Marshall, two outstanding prospects who are difficult to tackle, and then Hicks at fullback. Georgia's running back machine should be well-oiled for years to come if Gurley and Marshall pan out.

Rla8jydejjbjgtenegsn
2. Alabama
Yeldon, a five-star former Auburn commit, is the prize in this class. Every time he touches the ball something special could happen. Drake is a four-star prospect who has surprising speed and can be a game-breaker as well.
Xjj3fwqj905gvnvamdw0
U0yteeli7gtxpakfjojd
3. Virginia Tech
Coleman is a little pint of dynamite and put up impressive numbers throughout his high school career. Harris is another four-star who had outstanding statistics but he's taller and bigger, giving the Hokies a different look. Mangus could be a surprise in this class.
Ccsvqcxcb106mguorkv0
Ipcrzvjfnga6iiuqceah
4. Miami
Johnson is a superstar who can make people miss maybe better than anyone in the 2012 class. The five-star is fun to watch because he can do special things with the ball in his hands. Dillard is a big back who's difficult to bring down.
Kcfymf9ta5tflpv0lxq4
Iwbw4drtyjdxobphu7nf
5. Michigan
Houma should be used in a fullback role and Johnson is a big, powerful back necessary in the Big Ten. Norfleet was a late addition and it could be a big one. The four-star is very fast and difficult to bring down, and he adds an extra dimension to Michigan's offense.
WIDE RECEIVER

Ck0fhseobhyjfzo5axuk
1. Oklahoma
The Sooners loaded up at wide receiver with one five-star in Metoyer, a 2011 recruit who spent the season at Hargrave Military Academy, and four four-star prospects. Neal was solid at the Army Bowl and Shepard, from Oklahoma City (Okla.) Heritage Hall, is the top-rated player in the state.

2. Tennessee
The Volunteers kept Bowles and Croom in their recruiting class since the summer and then landed Patterson on National Signing Day. He could be a game-changer in Knoxville because the 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect is ready to step on the field immediately.
Ccsvqcxcb106mguorkv0
Yjcllw7i4u0iv8phhuoz
3. Miami
Only two of Miami's five wide receiver pledges are four-star prospects, but it's a solid haul with loads of potential. Lewis is small and shifty, while Lockhart is tall and lean. Both could end up being special players.
Y6vmf1gbrqznrkasqcqd
Fsghcrblttimnahlrulv
4. California
For all the talk that Cal's recruiting class collapsed, the Golden Bears fared pretty well at wide receiver with three four-star recruits. Treggs is the star in the group since he catches everything. Harper could be the sleeper since he's a three-star. He dominated at Encino (Calif.) Crespi this season.
Ab1pzw1drq7icvr8agdb
Zx8wfgxcwtajksjnzwit
5. USC
Agholor is special and could be an immediate addition to an already outstanding receiving corps. In the mix with Robert Woods and Marqise Lee, Agholor could catch a lot of passes. Rogers is a nice, solid addition as well. He might not play immediately but he should in time.
TIGHT END
K7718rb8i0waggbmjrmd
Jcm7un9w6vzj9ihminf0
1. Florida
The Gators landed two studs at tight end and should be set for years. Taylor is a big target who shined at the Army Bowl. Thompson weighs about 35 pounds more and could be used for blocking but can definitely catch the ball as well.
Zrvpwqmtkpec33745y2d
Fpg3xqtvcyre1qypmchp
2. Oregon
Coach Chip Kelly raved about both players and said they were the Ducks' top two targets at the position. Baylis is big, strong and runs well. Brown was outstanding at the Offense-Defense Bowl. Both could see early playing time.
D5zea0354apyfriiqi3d
Ld6gwrjx374i48pcrrlf
3. Auburn
Parks moved up to second in the tight end rankings by Rivals.com and is impressive physically. As No. 123 in the 2012 class, Parks should be expected to make an early contribution at Auburn. Hutcherson is huge at 6-foot-7 and 247 pounds.
Pu8ohrlq4ltbenhj4zhl
Lcckvoxaewhc9h0eotsg
4. Oklahoma
The Sooners loaded up with four tight ends so they should be set for the coming years. McNamara is the top-rated player in the group and he could split out to become a mismatch problem against linebackers.

I1ydtj4nzwjysrfztfdv
5. Oregon State
Smith, a 6-foot-7, 240-pound prospect, had Arkansas and UCLA knocking down his door in recent weeks but he stuck with the Beavers. He can have an immediate impact. Stanton is big and lean so he could be a mismatch in the passing game.
OFFENSIVE LINE
Qntpoqx6khfyd2uhoza3
Rh7ednrbtc7zyofohmdl
1. Stanford
The Cardinal had an amazing haul along the offensive line, led by five-star tackles Murphy and Peat, who had also been considering USC. Peat's brother plays at Nebraska but he turned down the Huskers. Garnett, a guard, was one spot away from five-star status. Keeping Fanaika was important, too, since he was considering a flip to Utah.
Ab1pzw1drq7icvr8agdb
Y496d8sfwnamr7aji7dz
2. USC
USC only signed three offensive linemen but it is ranked so high because all three are phenomenal players. Banner, a tackle, and Simmons, a guard, are both five-stars. Tuerk is a mauler, a tough, hard-nosed prospect who shined at the Army Bowl. The Trojans missed out on Murphy and Peat but still have an outstanding class.
Kcfymf9ta5tflpv0lxq4
Orw8qugk1mcfrrztxsxk
3. Michigan
Kalis is the star in this class, especially after playing well at the Army Bowl. He's the five-star recruit and has the ability to play early. Magnuson and Bars are four-star prospects who could be special in time.
Xybm2bwco70r0zcppurf
Yirwtunimkaqzuh9wg7s
4. Texas
The Longhorns signed four four-star prospects along the offensive line and they're all special. Riser is a tough kid who thrives on competition and is among the top offensive guards in the class. Estelle is a top 10 offensive tackle. Hawkins is a junior college prospect who could be ready to make an impact.
Evdscacwimboxof7pik3
Plqxjf9kwiiurtagytzb
5. Oregon State
Seumalo is the star in this class. The four-star offensive guard was being heavily pursued by USC but decided to stick in Oregon State's class. He's a phenomenal player. The rest of the Beavers' offensive line haul is talented and tough, blue-collar prospects who mean business. That's just how coach Mike Riley likes them.
