<p> 2013 Football Recruiting Rankings: Offensive Lineman</p>

National Signing Day 2013 is right around the corner and Athlon Sports is releasing its position-by-position rankings for the Class of 2013 based on the Athlon Consensus 100. Who is left on the board? Who has the best class at one position? Who had positional needs to fill? And, obviously, who are the stars of tomorrow fans can look forward to at every position?

The offensive line is where championships are won. Just look at Alabama the last few seasons. The Texas Longhorns, which have always recruited extremely well along the line, need some of those five-star names to pan out. Mack Brown is poised to land two of the top three players in the nation along the line, including what many believe is the top center in the nation—Darius James. The No. 24 offensive lineman, Jake Raulerson, is a two-way star from Celina, Texas, who could end up on either side of the ball.

Notre Dame and Michigan each have five offensive linemen in the top 30 committed. Brady Hoke wants to build his program around the running game and landing the nation's No. 1 O-Line class will go a long way towards having success in the Big Ten. Brian Kelly, meanwhile, got a quick education about SEC defensive lines and is set to land the No. 2 O-Line class this cycle

Additionally, Pitt, Maryland and LSU all kept the top blockers from their home bases in the fold with key verbal pledges

The big prize, however, is still left on the board as the nation's top lineman and No. 4-rated overall prospect Laremy Tunsil is still uncommitted. The Lake City (Fla.) Columbia blocker has Alabama, Ole Miss, Florida State and Georgia listed as his finalists.
