TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Jimbo Fisher reclined in a black leather chair with lunch -- a bowl of gumbo -- cooling on the arm rest. The Florida State coach, in a pair of jeans and chestnut-colored western dress boots, could rest easy and exchange seafood small talk with reporters as there was no signing day drama with the Seminoles.

National signing day, and the build up to it, is as close as Texas and Texas A&M get to actual football competition these days, to see who will in fact "run this state." Well, right now it's neither school.

Jimbo Fisher started as the QB guru but his personality resonates with elite playmakers like the eight at the Under Armour All-America Game. If the skill on display is any evidence, Fisher has reached a new level as a recruiter.
Weather played a factor on Day 2 of Under Armour All-America Game preparations. Despite the rain, practice went smoothly as the players remained focused. There was slipping at times as a result of the wet surface, but overall the play is becoming more concise and productive as the players are beginning to think less and play more and let their natural ability come to the forefront.

One thing is for sure for all the 2015 Under Armour All-Americans: This isn't high school anymore. Day 1 is about gauging the competition. Some guys dive right in and some test the waters with their big toe, but by the end of the first day of practice, all those in attendance have a pretty good idea of where they stand and what they need to do to compete and get better.

Go ahead and debate who should have been in the inaugural College Football Playoff, but there's no debating Bama, Oregon, FSU and OSU dominate in recruiting. 1. Just like Alabama is the top seed in the playoffs, the Crimson Tide have the top spot in the 2015 recruiting rankings.
