National champion Alabama had finished on top of the recruiting rankings each of the last seven years, but the Tide finished outside the top three this year.
By the end of National Signing Day, Georgia hopes to have the nation's No. 1 recruiting class. Mike Riley's class was imploding when he was sacked and ranked No. 89 in the 247 composite team rankings.
Georgia also beat Miami and Alabama for cornerback Tyson Campbell, from Plantation, Fla. Smart also flipped two talented prospects: five-star linebacker Quay Walker (Alabama) and four-star linebacker Otis Reese (Michigan). The younger Jones led the Scots to consecutive Class 5A Texas state championships.
"National Signing Day is usually a day full of drama", coach Charlie Strong said. His mom, who was wearing an Alabama sweater and Tennessee, as soon as he put a Gators cap on his head. The memorable moment of the day came during the commitment ceremony of Jacob Copeland, one of the best receivers in the 2018 class. That left Mizzou with no local football recruits in their 2018 class. Thompson will join fellow defensive lineman Ronnie Perkins of Lutheran North High School down in Norman, Oklahoma next fall. Frost is expected to finish with a class of 24 to 27 players that is expected to be in the top 25. He will first do a two-year mission.
LESS FLIPPING: This normally is the time that numerous verbally committed players suddenly change their minds and sign elsewhere, but the early signing period has made that less of a February event. The flurry of late commits brought the Trojans up to No. 4 in 247sports composite class rankings.
