It was a mad dash at the end, but Alabama used a late push to secure the top recruiting class for the sixth consecutive year.
While some other services had FSU No. 1, the 247Sports.com composite score of all team rankings by recruiting services gave the top spot to the Crimson Tide.
Unlike in years past, Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide staff relied on a furious finish on national signing day to wrap up one another solid class, which included 25 signees.
"There really were only a couple of schools that could have finished No. 1: Alabama and Florida State were two of those schools," said Mike Farrell, national recruiting director for Rivals.com.
