Three of the nation's top college football programs faced coaching changes following the 2013 season.

Penn State's new head coach James Franklin was able to keep Bill O'Brien's recruiting class on board, while also bringing in nine of his own, five of them making the switch with him from Vandy.

Texas' Charlie Strong has big shoes to fill in Austin, but did a good job preserving the majority of Mack Brown's recruitng class, and bringing on five more after his hire.

Although the USC Trojans had a dramatic 2013 season, letting go of Lane Kiffin and Ed Orgeron, things are looking up for the Cardinal and Gold.

Head coach Steve Sarkisian was able to sweep the three five-star recruits from the Southern California area. Most notably, cornerback Adoree Jackson was the big steal for the Trojans.
