National Championships Are Won on National Signing Day

“We always undersell Signing Day... For everyone out there who says recruiting rankings don’t matter, since 1996 every National Champion except 2000 Oklahoma has had at least two Top 10 recruiting classes in the four years before they won their title.”

-- Clay Travis.

Even though notable high school football recruiting rankings can let Hall of Fame talents slip through the cracks with All-Pros like JJ Watt, Bobby Wagner, and Eric Weddle being infamously recorded as two-star players, and even guys like Tony Romo, DeMarcus Ware, and Brent Grimes being unrated altogether, Clay Travis says National Signing Day is the best predictor of who is going to dominate the polls in the ensuing seasons.

Listen to the audio below as Clay talks about Wednesday’s National Signing Day and explains why it’s not hard to take a look at the rankings and see schools like Alabama, Georgia, and Clemson raking up all the four and five-star players and realize why they reign supreme in the sport year after year.
