5 College Football Teams That Desperately Need a Top 2015 Recruiting Class

College football seems to belong to the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Florida State Seminoles at the moment, and a lot of that has to do with how well they have recruited over the last couple seasons. These are the programs that are just on the outside looking in, but a solid recruiting class in 2015 could help to tip them over to national title contention.

The LSU Tigers have experienced a fair amount of success under Les Miles, and even a national championship. Last year's Outback Bowl win probably does not excite Tiger fans as much though. Head coach Miles will need to do better when it comes to their in-state recruiting if they want to enter the fray again.

4. The South Carolina Gamecocks

The South Carolina Gamecocks have done a solid recruiting job on the defensive side of the ball so far in the 2015 class, but they need to improve the offense. They have a four star linebacker coming to town in Sherrod Pittman, which will make a fantastic addition to the roster. But you cannot win games without scoring points, and Steve Spurrier should know that by now.

3. Texas A&M Aggies

The recruiting success ever since Johnny Manziel came to town has definitely improved, but they need to keep things rolling in order to win the SEC. It is a fairly tough task; however, Kevin Sumlin appears game to the challenge, and we will have to see how long they can keep it up. Their 2015 class is ranked 5th in the nation according to Rivals, which is a fairly good start wouldn't you say?

2. The Clemson Tigers

Dabo Swinney has made the Clemson Tigers nationally relevant again, and they have the highest rated recruiting class on this list. They are the third best class in 2015 according to Rivals, and they are adding talent on both sides of the ball. That should worry the Florida State Seminoles most of all. The ACC is going to be up for grabs in 2015, and the Tigers' recruiting class could end up being the benefactors.

1. The USC Trojans

The USC Trojans' glory days are far behind them, and that is why they top this list. If they want to get back into national title contention, then obviously their recruiting will need to improve quite a bit. I was able to interview the pictured quarterback, Max Browne, but he has yet to make a significant impact on the program.

FAIL!
