National signing day has come and gone for college football's 2022 recruiting class.
With four five-star recruits (so far), Texas A&M ended the 2022 cycle with the No. 1-ranked recruiting class, marking the third time Jimbo Fisher finished atop the class rankings as a head coach (Florida State, 2011 and 2016).
The 2022 cycle started with a mandated dead period amid the COVID-19 pandemic and saw a wild coaching carousel, many significant players changing teams via the transfer portal and one of the biggest flips in recruiting history. Teams also managed conference realignment and name, image and likeness policies impacting the broader college football landscape.
And the No. 1-ranked prospect in the 2023 class, defensive end Lebbeus Overton, reclassified to the 2022 class on Thursday, saying he will visit and decide between Georgia, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas A&M in the spring.
The dust has settled, and our reporters share what they take away from the 2022 recruiting cycle, from how historically talented the Aggies' class is to which recruits can stand out on Saturdays.
