Kickoff to the 2018-19 college football regular season is still four months away but recruiting never stops and spring practices have already begun. The usual suspects top the college football future charts with Alabama being the overwhelming favorite to repeat as champions in 2019.
The USA Today sports columnist Paul Myerberg updated his college rankings on May Day and the Clemson Tigers top his poll. “Clemson and Alabama might have inched closer to settling their respective quarterback competitions. Penn State found its next running back. Michigan landed a five-star quarterback” and more reported Myerberg.
Myerberg’s Top Five to begin the month of May are as follows:
1. Clemson (previous rank: No. 1)
It’s a return trip to the College Football Playoff or bust for Dabo Swinney and Clemson. And the argument is there for the Tigers as the top team in the country entering the summer.
Also the Tigers still need to settle a quarterback competition between incumbent starter Kelly Bryant and freshman Trevor Lawrence. This due to Lawrence’s strong spring.
2. Alabama (No. 2)
The NFL draft may suggest that Alabama has a huge number of holes to fill on both sides. However this is nothing new for Nick Saban and the Tide.
Biggest question: It’s a good thing Saban is the best coach of defensive backs in all of football, because the Tide need to do some rebuilding without Minkah Fitzpatrick and several other key pieces.
3. Wisconsin (No. 5)
The offense is going to be Wisconsin’s best in years. While the defense has just enough returning talent on the line and at linebacker to bridge the gap to a new cast in the secondary.
Best asset: An offensive line that brings back every single contributor from 2017 will pace the Badgers to a Big Ten Conference title.
4. Washington (No. 8)
The only thing brighter than Washington’s chances in 2018 is the program’s overall potential under Chris Petersen and his staff.
Biggest question: What the Huskies really need is increased production from senior quarterback Jake Browning, and to do that demands some retooling and development at receiver.
5. Ohio State (No. 3)
The Buckeyes are going to be challenged in the East Division. However Urban Meyer’s team simply looks too talented and too deep to be unseated.
Biggest question: With a new quarterback, the Buckeyes need to find new leaders at tackle and center along the offensive line.
