Now that May has turned into June, here are the six biggest winners from college football recruiting over the past month.
College football recruiting is about to heat up in a major way as official visits will start happening this weekend.
A bunch of elite recruits in the 2024 college football recruiting class have already committed and one of those that pledged in May was No. 1 quarterback Dylan Raiola. The five-star committed to Georgia and was the biggest commitment in May.
There were a slew of big-name quarterbacks that committed in the Month of May and with it being a sort of slow month in terms of commitments, the quarterbacks weighed heavily in our ranking of the six biggest college football recruiting winners from May.
Tied 4th: Nebraska, Utah, and Kentucky
There were a bunch of teams in the mix for this spot. Alabama, Michigan, Penn State, etc. But two of these three programs landed multiple commitments in May. All three also landed big-time commitments at quarterback.
Let’s start with Nebraska. The Huskers missed out on Dylan Raiola and that led some to believe Nebraska would be scrambling for a quarterback.
The Huskers weren’t ready to take a commitment from Daniel Kaelin until Raiola made up his mind. Kaelin was committed to Missouri and most thought it would stay that way.
However, he flipped his commitment from Missouri to Nebraska, giving the Huskers a viable future starting quarterback (he just received an Elite 11 invite) and also some palpable momentum on the recruiting trail.
Kaelin is a three-star at this point, but I think that’ll eventually change. Either way, he was a huge commitment for head coach Matt Rhule.
Along those same lines, Isaac Wilson was a massive get for the Utah Utes in the 2024 college football recruiting class. Wilson is the younger brother of Zach Wilson, the former BYU quarterback, and No. 2 overall pick.
Winning this recruitment is a good sign for Utah moving forward and landing one of the last uncommitted four-star QBs in 2024 got the Utes on this list.
Kentucky made our list for the pledge of former 2025 five-star Cutter Boley. He’s a four-star in the 2024 class and he re-classified, yet he’s still one of the top-ranked recruits in Wildcat history and has a chance to be an elite, multi-year starter.
