The 2024 college football recruiting class is now in full swing and here’s a look at the top commitments from the first week of February. 

It’s crazy that last week was National Signing Day because now the focus of college football recruiting is all on the 2024 class.

Duce Robinson still hasn’t signed in the 2023 class and he is the No. 1 tight end. So there is still things happening with the 2023 college football recruiting class, but the shift to 2024 has already been well underway.

At any rate, there were some key commitments last week. A number of blue-chip prospects (4 of 5-star recruits) committed and here is a list of the top five college football recruiting commitments for the first week of February.

5. Austin Mack (4-star QB committed to Washington)

The Huskies have done a solid job of attracting quarterbacks under Kalen DeBoer. The Huskies lost their 2023 QB commitment late to Ohio State. So adding a four-star commitment in Austin Mack is pretty important.

Mack is 6-foot-6, 210 pounds and according to 247 sports’ own rankings, he’s a top-100 prospect and a top-10 quarterback in 2024. Evaluations are always tricky but Mack’s ranking should improve over time and he’s a legit QB of the future for the Huskies.

4. Ju’Juan Johnson (4-star athlete to Colorado)

Deion Sanders has taken the college football recruiting world by storm at Colorado. Last week, he signed five-star cornerback Cormani McClain, and adding the commitment of Ju’Juan Johnson over the weekend was a solid addition to a strong start in 2024.

Colorado already has five recruits committed in the 2024 class and Johnson is the second four-star recruit to pledge to Coach Prime. Out of Louisiana, Johnson is ranked 225th in the 247 sports composite rankings but is ranked 41st overall in the 247 sports own rankings.

That’s a big difference just like we saw with Austin Mack. You do see that sometimes between recruiting services. Regardless, Johnson had a five-star offer sheet and the 6-foot-1, 178-pound athlete is a really good pull from SEC country for Coach Prime.
