We are still a very long way away from National Signing Day (NSD) in February of 2014. However, college football recruiting is a cutthroat game that literally never stops. Thus, just as coaches and their staffs are continuously touring the country attempting to impress the nation’s biggest names, or scouring for diamonds in the rough, so too are we continuously monitoring their progress.

Following a few down years, coach Mack Brown’s Texas Longhorns are expected to dominate on the field in 2013 and then again on NSD a few months later. Their 14 commits already are by far the most in the nation, but it is not simply quantity Brown is looking for. Texas already has 11 commits that are rated at four stars or higher. The class is headlined by 6-foot-3, 225-pound defensive end Derick Roberson and 6-foot-1, 193-pound quarterback Jerrod Heard. Both are ranked within the ESPN150.

Florida’s 2013 class was ranked at No. 2-nationally and their 2014 haul should figure to be right there as well. Speedy running back Dalvin Cook is currently ranked at No. 20-overall by ESPN, while Will Grier has the potential as a dual-threat quarterback to step right into the starter’s role once Jeff Driskel is done in Gainesville.

Michigan moves up a spot to No. 3, leapfrogging LSU. Despite a small class thus far, seven of the eight future Wolverines are ranked in the ESPN150. Brady Hoke seems to be getting a hold on big-time recruiting, but Tigers coach Les Miles always brings in top-tier classes. Three of Miles’ five ESPN150 commits live within a two-hour drive of Baton Rouge, headlined by 6-foot-4, 285-pound offensive guard Garrett Brumfeld.

Finally, Texas A&M signed a whopping 32 kids in their 2013 class, and the Aggies already have 10 committed for the 2014 cycle. Three are ESPN150 prospects, led by the No. 1-rated outside linebacker in the nation in Hoza Scott.

Check out how the entire top 25 recruiting rankings for the 2014 cycle break down thus far:
