BATON ROUGE - Sports analysts say that recruiting ratings can continue to shift even into Thursday despite National Signing Day being in the books as some highly rated players can opt to sign late.

Demetris Robertson, a top-notch athlete from Savannah, Georgia, rated either a five- or four-star by the recruiting services, has said he won't sign for a few days. When he does, he could move the numbers.

But using the numbers available at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and taking an average of the four most popular web sites that rank the classes (Rivals, Scout, 247Sports and ESPN) here is a "consensus" of how the top 25 shaped up last night.

Earlier rankings mistakenly left out Michigan State. The Spartans came in at No. 18. The LSU Tigers finished up in the No. 4 spot.

1. Alabama
2. Florida State
3. Ohio State
4. LSU
5. Michigan
6. Mississippi
7. Georgia
8. Clemson
9. USC
10. Auburn
11. Texas
12. UCLA
13. Florida
14. Notre Dame
15. Tennessee
16. Baylor
17. Texas A&M
18. Michigan State
19. TCU
20. Penn State
21. Oklahoma
22. Stanford
23. Nebraska
24. Oregon
25. Arkansa

As National Signing Day drew to a close, the final big-name recruit to commit was linebacker Caleb Kelly, who chose to go with the Oklahoma Sooners over the Fighting Irish.
