 The recruiting Class of 2015 in South Carolina looks to be deeper than the 2014 class.

That’s saying something, because all the top 100 players in 2014 on the scvarsity.com list signed to play college football on Wednesday.

The Class of 2015 will be deep on the defensive line, with as many as five players who could end up with four stars in the recruiting ratings. Here’s a look at the top players in the Class of 2015 (listed in alphabetical order):
