2019 Final Recruiting Class 1-130 Rankings: What You Need To Know, Best Prospects, Strengths

By

Ranking all the 2019 recruiting classes for all 130 teams. How do they all look after the signings are in?


110. UTEP Miners

What You Need To Know: Yeah, it’s not a highly-ranked class, but for UTEP it’s going to be a factor. Massive, 32 players signed on, with the best parts at the offensive skill positions. QB TJ Goodwin is a good get, along with the running backs, and the tight ends are deep and promising.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: RB Deon Hankins
Strongest Position: Tight End
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 106

109. UNLV Rebels

What You Need To Know: Tony Sanchez didn’t do too much with a decent-sized class, but he signed a few interesting prospects. Former Minnesota QB Vic Viramontes is coming in as a linebacker, but Travis Mumphrey is a true quarterback – stolen away from New Mexico – who’ll make a difference. The JUCO transfer ends have to shine.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: LB/QB Vic Viramontes
Strongest Position: Defensive End
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 99

108. Coastal Carolina Chanticleers

What You Need To Know: Joe Moglia went with a decent class for the offensive line, but the biggest push was for the secondary. Getting Australian punter Kieran Colahan makes the biggest splash, but WR Deon Fountain should be the biggest offensive star.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: P Kieran Colahan
Strongest Position: Defensive Backs
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 114

107. Air Force Falcons

What You Need To Know: As always, Air Force classes are different than most, and it always takes something different to put together the parts for what the Academy does. This class, though, is full of very quick safety/linebacker prospects to build up.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: S Nate Polk
Strongest Position: Linebacker
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 119

106. Georgia State Panthers

What You Need To Know: A late push on National Signing Day helps the cause, especially at receiver. The defensive line is solid, but the offensive front will need a push in next year’s class. Overall, the skill players were all but ignored.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: DT Tahji Gilbert
Strongest Position: Defensive Line
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 88

105. Akron Zips

What You Need To Know: New head man Tom Arth is starting out with the offensive linemen along with a decent group of safeties in a decent-sized class. It would be a big help if QB Zach Gibson could turn into a factor right away.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: RB Peter Hayes-Patrick
Strongest Position: Safety
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 123

104. Eastern Michigan Eagles

What You Need To Know: Head coach Chris Creighton signed a huge class, with the defensive tackles and corners the ones to build the defensive around. There’s not a ton for the skill spots, but the running backs are exciting.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: RB John Branham
Strongest Position: Cornerback
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 103

103. Northern Illinois Huskies

What You Need To Know: New head man Thomas Hammock might be about the ground game, but his receivers are the best part of the class. The corners and defensive tackles aren’t bad, either.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: S Justin Clark
Strongest Position: Wide Receiver
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 90

102. Hawaii Rainbow Warriors

What You Need To Know: Nick Rolovich signed three JUCO receivers who need to step in immediately and produce, and he tried to fill in some holes right away with other JUCO prospects. Quarterbacks Zach Daniel and Boone Abbott will be in the spotlight.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: WR Lincoln Victor
Strongest Position: Wide Receiver
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 101

101. Buffalo Bulls

What You Need To Know: It’s been a rough offseason, and now the program has to rebuild a bit. It’s starting with a strong group of receivers with a few good enough to be thrown to the woods right away. The defensive tackles are promising.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: DT Tyrece Woods
Strongest Position: Wide Receiver
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 129

100. Georgia Southern Eagles

What You Need To Know: It’s a big class with a whole lot to like. Former Oklahoma State RB JD King should be a star in the offense, and landing excellent K Zack Sessa will turn out to be a big deal. The defensive backs are nice, especially at safety.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: RB JD King
Strongest Position: Safety
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 93

99. Wyoming Cowboys

What You Need To Know: It’s a good-sized class with an emphasis on the offensive side. Levi Williams was stolen away from Houston to potentially be the team’s next big passer, and the receivers are coming in to help him out. The defensive ends are terrific, too.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: QB Levi Williams
Strongest Position: Wide Receiver
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 117

98. Appalachian State Mountaineers

What You Need To Know: New head coach Eliah Drinkwitz was able to bring in a great group of athletes and speedsters – now he has to find something to do with them. Outside of QB David Baldwin, there’s little for the offense – for the moment. Several of the versatile players can move to receiver.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: QB David Baldwin
Strongest Position: Defensive Back
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 112

97. FIU Golden Panthers

What You Need To Know: It’s not a huge class, but it’s interesting. There are a few interesting skill players coming in, but the class is about the infrastructure on the O, getting a slew of the best prospects for the line.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: RB Lexington Joseph
Strongest Position: Offensive Tackle
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 92

96. UAB Blazers

What You Need To Know: The Blazers got a few quarterbacks, and a good-looking receiver in Markus Grossman, but the O line got the bulk talent and the linebacking corps – starting with Will Conner – came up with the best depth.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: OT Jayme Simmons
Strongest Position: Linebacker
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 110

95. Temple Owls

What You Need To Know: Considering the team had and lost a head coach in ten minutes, at least there’s something. Rod Carey only ended up with 17 recruits, with just a little bit for the skill spots and most of the upside in the defensive backfield.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: WR Kwesi Evans
Strongest Position: Defensive Back
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 76

94. BYU Cougars

What You Need To Know: It’s an okay class, but it’s hardly anything special, especially for the offensive side. The bulk talent is at defensive end, and the receivers and tight ends are okay. But where are the high-end prospects? They’re few and far between.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: DE CJ Alatini
Strongest Position: Defensive End
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 77

93. Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders

What You Need To Know: The defensive line got the most help, with Marley Cook a nice option for the interior to go along with a whole slew of defensive ends, but Marcus Lafrance and the secondary got a whole lot of help, too. Randall Johnson is the JUCO transfer quarterback who can take over now.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: QB Randall Johnson
Strongest Position: Defensive End
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 98

92. Ohio Bobcats

What You Need To Know: There’s nothing amazing, but the O line has talent coming in for the interior, and the skill guys are interesting, especially at running back. The defensive tackles are in place to work around in the near future.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: LB Cannon Blauser
Strongest Position: Offensive Tackle
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 95

91. Troy Trojans

What You Need To Know: There’s a whole lot of talent considering the coaching change, especially for a smallish class. New head man Chip Lindsay loaded up on receivers – six out of the 21 signees – but also landed a few ready-to-roll prospects for the defensive side.
Best Prospect Name You Should Know: WR Khalil McClain
Strongest Position: Wide Receiver
2018 Recruiting Ranking: 108
