2012 National Signing Day: Texas Class Ranked No. 3 By SB Nation

SB Nation college football recruiting contributor Bud Elliott has unveiled his updated rankings for the latest 2012 college football signing classes, with a special weighted emphasis put on the stars assigned to each prospect.

The University of Texas rates as the third-best class in the nation, behind only Florida State and Florida. Elliott's system rates the percentage of committed players who are on average rated four stars or higher by the nation's top recruiting services (24/7 Sports, ESPN, Rivals and Scout).

The Longhorns are among the usual suspects - both Florida schools, USC (No. 4), Oklahoma (No. 6), as well as the usual slew of SEC schools in the Top 10 (Alabama, the Gators, Auburn and Georgia).

For a complete list of Elliott's rankings, click here - there's an interesting logic in his system, in that certain exclusions (no kickers or punters, no prep school or junio college players) apply in an effort to boil down the potential for success each class will have on its program.
