FCS fans may think it's too early to talk about recruiting, but with the early signing period that the NCAA instituted (for December), the world of FCS recruiting has accelerated and there are several programs that are already in double digits as far as class size. Today, we rank this year's list of FCS commitments who are projected to play QB.

POSTSEASON: FCS Playoffs Seeding Predictions – As Of Now
SCHEDULE: DL (Thursday, Oct. 4); DBs (Friday, Oct. 5); LBs (Monday, Oct. 8), OL (Tuesday, Oct. 9), RBs (Wednesday, Oct. 10), WR/TEs (Thursday, Oct. 11), QBs (Friday, Oct. 12), Next week (Conference by Conference); OVERALL TOP 150 (Monday, Oct. 22)
How do we come to the QB rankings below? It's a mixture of a couple of things:
- How do the ratings services see them at the time of the commitment? (because many FCS commitments lose their higher ranking status after they commit to this level)
- How many offers does this recruit possess? If a large quantity of college coaches are offering this individual, that holds clout — even over the star rankings.
- Who is offering? If a young man has Power Five Conference offers or multiple FBS offers, that's another key factor in what you see below.
So take a look at the Top FCS QB commitments so far. This is something we will follow through February 2019.
