SEC Commitment Comparator – 6/29/12

Rolling into the weekend, we wanted to give you an updated look at the SEC’s commitment Big Board.  It just so happens that we also did a spot check on May 29th, so below you’ll see we’ve added a line to show you who’s made the most of the past month in terms of handshake deals and non-binding verbal agreements.

As usual, we use Rivals.com’s star ratings system.  Where they give a star, we give a point.  But we also give a point to all 0-star players (because eventually those guys will be reviewed and will get some sort of star).

First, let’s see the total number of “talent points” locked up by each program as of this morning:

 

  School   Commits   5-stars   4-stars   3-stars   2-stars   1- & 0-stars   Total Pts 
  Texas A&M   21   0   9   11   0   1   70
  Alabama   18   1   10   6   0   2   65
  Florida   18   0   10   8   0   0   64
  Georgia   19   0   9   9   0   1   64
  LSU   16   0   11   5   0   0   59
  S. Carolina   18   0   5   12   1   0   58
  Vanderbilt   15   0   3   12   0   0   48
  Auburn   13   2   2   8   1   0   44
  Missouri   13   0   3   9   0   1   40
  Ole Miss   13   0   3   9   0   1   40
  Tennessee   13   0   4   6   0   3   37
  Miss. State   11   0   3   7   0   1   34
  Arkansas   9   0   0   7   0   2   23
  Kentucky   7   0   0   4   1   2   16

 

Now let’s look at the average points per commitment to see what caliber of athlete — on paper — each program is having success with so far:

 

  School   Avg. Pts Per Commit
  LSU   3.68
  Alabama   3.61
  Florida   3.55
  Auburn   3.38
  Georgia   3.36
  Texas A&M   3.33
  S. Carolina   3.22
  Vanderbilt   3.20
  Miss. State   3.09
  Missouri   3.07
  Ole Miss   3.07
  Tennessee   2.84
  Arkansas   2.55
  Kentucky   2.28

 

I know we’ll get arguments that each of these programs will be A-OK come signing day and that the following conclusion is nuts — N-V-T-S, nuts (to quote “History of the World, Part I”) — but it sure looks like the three guys on the SEC’s hottest seats are having the hardest time connecting with high-profile prospects.  That’d be Derek Dooley, John L. Smith and Joker Phillips, all of whom could be gone if 2012 doesn’t go well.

Finally, here’s what each school has gotten done since our comparator of exactly one month ago:

 

  School   Pts Added Since 5/29
  Miss. State   32
  S. Caroina   25
  LSU   22
  Vanderbilt   18
  Alabama   16
  Tennessee   15
  Texas A&M   14
  Kentucky   13
  Auburn   11
  Georgia   11
  Ole Miss   11
  Florida   7
  Arkansas   5
  Missouri   1

 

Looks like Dan Mullen, Steve Spurrier and Les Miles and their aides have been awfully busy over the past four weeks.
