SEC Commitment Comparison – 1/31/11

It’s national signing week and your favorite school has about 48 hours until the faxes start rolling in.  With that in mind, we bring you the first Big Board update of the week.  Since our last check-in, six SEC schools have added players and one has lost a commitment:

Vanderbilt +5
Arkansas +4
Auburn +4
Florida +4
LSU +4
Mississippi State +3
Ole Miss -3

Below are the latest commitment number — as of Rivals.com at 8:00am Monday morning — for each and every SEC squad.  First, we’ll look at total points.  As always, we assign one point for each Rivals’ star.  We also give 0-star prospects a point.  Rather than leaning on the 4- and 5-star prospects to hand out rankings, we simply show you the total talent pool from top to bottom.

Obviously a few SEC schools still have a ways to go to equal last year’s classes.  One place where you don’t see such big shifts is in the type of talent each school brings in.  Below you’ll find the average-points-per-player numbers for each 2011 commitment class… and for the 2010 signing class (as well as their SEC rank).  Note the similarities:


School
Avg. Points/2011 Commit
Avg.  Points/2010 Signee
Alabama
3.80 (1)
3.61 (4)
LSU
3.63 (2)
3.62 (3)
Auburn
3.59 (3)
3.50 (5)
Florida
3.56 (4)
3.89 (1)
Georgia
3.52 (5)
3.68 (2)
Tennessee
3.30 (6)
3.44 (6)
Ole Miss
3.25 (7)
3.25 (7)
S. Carolina
3.16 (8)
3.04 (8)
Miss. State
3.08 (9)
2.92 (10)
Arkansas
3.06 (10)
2.96 (9)
Kentucky
3.05 (11)
2.76 (12)
Vanderbilt
2.78 (12)
2.79 (11)



In terms of whose landing the top talent, the “Big Six” traditional SEC powers are still bringing in the most 4- and 5-star recruits.  Interestingly, despite the fact that Rivals is giving out fewer 5- and 4-stars grades this year, most SEC schools are bringing in higher-caliber talent this year (Alabama, LSU, Auburn, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Arkansas, and Kentucky all have higher points-per-player averages in 2011).

But the fact remains — Ole Miss, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Kentucky and Vanderbilt still have some work to do to match the clout of Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee on the recruiting front.
