Colin Simmons

Games are won and lost up front. While it's difficult for a big man to make an immediate impact jumping from high school to college, the 2024 ESPN 300 features six defensive linemen among the 23 five-star recruits. Simply put, this group has a chance to be special and has several players who could quickly play key roles. Miami, Georgia and Oklahoma put together the best defensive line classes in 2024.
