Looking back at the month of March when it comes to college football recruiting, Michigan football, Florida State, USC, and others were the big winners.
Spring is upon us and in college football, that means spring games and practices. In terms of college football recruiting, it’s also a busy time of the year.
The dead period for college football recruiting ended at the start of March and while it’s considered a “quiet” period that means recruits are able to take visits on campus again.
Spring visits have been the theme of college football recruiting over the past few weeks as top targets in 2024, and 2025, and even some in 2026 have been making stops around the country.
Many programs are putting in work that will pay off over the summer and not all recruits are following the same timeline.
However, a bunch of big-time recruits made decisions this past month, and as we look back at the month of March in college football recruiting, here are the five biggest winners on the trail.
USC football makes this list simply because the Trojans were finally able to reel in one of the top prospects in the entire 2023 college football recruiting class and that’s five-star tight end Duce Robinson.
Robinson is 6-foot-6, 250 pounds, and as elite as they come. He’s expected to be a first-round pick in the MLB draft this summer and has legit aspirations of being a two-way pro in football and baseball.
Robinson is also highly-polished. He played for one of the top high school programs in America and caught 84 passes for 1,614 yards and 14 touchdowns last season. The dude is a freak and Caleb Williams has to be salivating at the idea of throwing him the ball next season.
The addition also gives USC football the top recruiting class in the Pac-12 for the 2023 cycle and gives the Trojans a weapon that could start and play right away.
