4. Pittsburgh: Despite some initial struggles after their most recent coaching change, the Panthers pulled it together, and were helped by their newest four-star commitment, Deaysean Rippy, earlier Wednesday.
5. USF: The Bulls were able to fend off numerous programs in recent weeks for both Sean Price and D'Vario Montgomery, which was a big victory for the program.
7. Syracuse: The Orange continued to regain their recruiting foothold in the state of New York with this recruiting class, which included the signing day commitment of three-star defensive back Wayne Morgan.
8. Connecticut: The Huskies lost two Floridians on signing day, but were able to fill the void with sleeper defensive end Omaine Stephens from New Jersey.
7. California: The Golden Bears' class got gutted in the last few weeks. There's no way around it. But keeping four-star Cedric Dozier and a handful of other four-star recruits means things are still OK. Cal also landed four-star receiver Kenny Lawler toward the end of the day. Four-star Bryce Treggs stayed committed to Cal and turned down USC and UCLA.
9. Colorado: It was a relatively peaceful day for the Buffaloes, who didn't get any commitments on signing day but the coaching staff did all its work in the last few weeks, which includes landing two four-star defensive backs.
4. Auburn: The Tigers didn't get the typical national title bump, yet still landed 11 four-star prospects, including Rivals100 offensive tackle Avery Young and receiver Ricardo Louis, and have an average recruit rating above 3.5.
5. Texas A&M: Despite having a few players flip to other schools down the stretch, the Aggies will enter their new conference with a class that is more than SEC worthy.
6. LSU: The Tigers lost one big-time commit - linebacker Torshiro Davis - to Texas on Wednesday, but landed another in Kwon Alexander to complete a solid, if not star-studded class.
7. Tennessee: The Vols finished things off by landing talented junior college receiver Cordarrelle Patterson late, which helped offset some of the sting from losing two linebacker commits in recent days.
8. South Carolina: The Gamecocks grabbed eight four-star commits, including potential difference-makers Mike Davis, a running back, and Shaq Roland, a receiver, and did very well in neighboring Georgia.
9. Vanderbilt: Despite losing four-star commit Josh Dawson to Georgia on Wednesday, the Commodores have to be pleased, particularly with their impressive work done in Tennessee.
