Notre Dame, Texas A&M and the 9 football teams with surprisingly good or bad recruiting classes

Alabama is currently holding on to the No. 1-ranked football recruiting class for the 2023 cycle, which at this point, under Nick Saban, is to be expected.

It hasn't been the typical recruiting cycle beyond the Crimson Tide, though, as we have seen some new programs emerge at the top of the rankings and some blue bloods off to a slow start. Notre Dame skyrocketed to the top of the rankings very early in the cycle, only to get passed by Alabama, and is now fending for its position at No. 2.
