SEC Commitment Comparitor – 2/28/12

We’re nearly a month removed from Signing Day 2012… what better time to start looking toward 2013?  Below you’ll see our first commitment comparitor for next year’s signing class.  Keep in mind that many of the 61 players already committed to SEC programs have not even been reviewed, graded or ranked yet.  For that reason, you’ll see a whole lot of 0-star players on our list.

As usual, we use Rivals.com’s rankings.  We assign one point for each star they hand out to a player, but we also count 0-star prospects as being worth a point.  God don’t make no junk, as the old saying goes.

At the end of the table, you’ll notice a new category: In-State Commits.  If you want to know why so many coaches are not in favor of an early signing period, just check out the advantage programs located in talent-rich states have over schools located in talent-poor states.  There’s a reason Florida, Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M should always rank near the top of SEC recruiting lists.  And there’s a reason many coaches running programs in states bereft of blue chip prospects would just as soon not give their rivals a chance to close off their borders early.

As you can see, Nick Saban’s program continues to rack up top ‘o the line talent.  And from all over the Southland, too.  Of the Tide’s nine early commitments, four come from Alabama, two from Georgia, and one each come from Arkansas, Florida and Louisiana.

That train, just keeps on rolling.

@John: What?! You're using that POS Rivals rating... again? Do you hate my school or what?! Your bias is soooo transparent...

 

Just kidding. Couldn't get through the football off season w/o your site. :) 

 

I must say I'm impressed by Zook's recruiting. Er... I mean Muschamp's.

I've noticed that in-state recruits are much more likely to turn out well for UF than out of state recruits. Out of state recruits seem to be more likely to underperform their ratings, have criminal problems or flunk out than in-state recruits. Three star recruits from Florida high schools that UF recruiters visit regularly appear to me to out perform those five star recruits from New Jersey or Ohio. Recruits from Alabama seem especially unlikely to perform well at UF. I'd prefer UF stick to recruiting Florida where they can evaluate players better and only take an occasional out of state player.

It may be a little early to be doing this, because not all players have been assigned stars. Arkansas has 1 commit, from Katy, TX running back Jamel James. You have the Hogs' lone commit as a 1*/0* commit, when in fact he will be a 4*, according to Rivals projections. He's been rated about equal with Alabama commit Altee Tenpenny, who is a 4*.

Fayettechill14...

 

Apparently you didn't read the actual story:

 

"Keep in mind that many of the 61 players already committed to SEC programs have not even been reviewed, graded or ranked yet.  For that reason, you’ll see a whole lot of 0-star players on our list."  

 

Those are sentences three and four in the story.

 @John at MrSEC Gotcha. Sorry about that. Point still stands that it may be a little early for something like this, but I guess the point of the article was about Alabama, which is true.

 

As for James, he has not been evaluated, likely because of his very early commitment he is a low priority, but a guy who received interest from LSU, Texas Tech, Oregon, Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas A&M, with offers from LSU and Texas Tech, is probably NOT going to be a zero-star player. He's one of the nation's premiere high school backs.
