Chalk up another loss for Alabama, though this one might just be temporary.

The comparison between Ohio State and Alabama currently seems to be one of quantity vs. quality, though both schools have both compared to nearly every other school in the FBS. Alabama currently holds 26 commitments. Twenty-one of those are from 4- or 5-star prospects, exceeding Ohio State’s class of 19 total players. However, Ohio State holds a whopping seven 5-star pledges, three more than any team in the country.
The recruiting season isn’t even close to being over with national signing day looming on Feb. 1, but for now, Ohio State holds the top class in college football.
