Alabama follows up title by finalizing star-studded class
The recruiting class that Alabama finalized Wednesday has the highest rating in the history of the 247Sports Composite team rankings, which go back to 2010. Steve Wilfong, the director of recruiting for 247Sports, notes this celebrated Alabama class arrives as most of the Tide’s decorated 2017 class departs. Ad“You’re replacing one of the best recruiting classes ever for what they accomplished with maybe the best recruiting class on paper coming in,” Wiltfong said. While plenty of SEC teams joined Alabama in signing impressive classes, Ohio State stood out from its Big Ten foes. All three were quarterbacks, with Bryce Young enrolling at Alabama, DJ Uiagalelei selecting Clemson and CJ Stroud selecting Ohio State.

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit in which two former University of Maryland mens basketball players accused makers of the Fortnite video game of misappropriating a dance move that the ex-teammates popularized.

Ribeiro dropped his lawsuit against Epic Games last year after the U.S. But Plaintiffs claims that Epic Games copied the dance do not support any of their theories, the judge wrote.
