Signing Day: Ranking the Class of 2024’s top men’s golf signings, classes

A year after ceding the No. 1 recruiting class to Pac-12 rival Arizona State, Stanford head coach Conrad Ray inked two of the top five recruits in the Class of 2024, Thailand’s T.K. Chantananuwat and San Diego’s Jay Leng Jr. as part of’s top-ranked class for this early signing period.

Chantananuwat is a class-best No. 46 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, just ahead of 53rd-ranked and Georgia Tech signee Albert Hansson of Sweden. Leng Jr. is sixth or better overall in all three junior rankings – AJGA, Golfweek and Junior Golf Scoreboard. Last year, the Cardinal had the seventh-ranked class.

For the second time in three years, Alabama landed a talented pair, following 2022 signees Nick Dunlap and Jonathan Griz with 2024’s Nicholas Gross and William Jennings.

A few days after competing in the PGA Tour’s World Wide Technology Championship as a qualifier, Billy Davis signed with Auburn and will join his twin sister, Anna, on The Plains next fall (Anna Davis will enroll in January). It’s the second straight year that Auburn turns in a top-five class.

The Sun Devils still cracked the top five in classes while Arkansas also turned in a strong class at No. 4.

Here is a look at the top 40 individual signings and top 15 classes for the Class of 2024:
