Am I missing something? How can A&M have 34 commits? Isn't the limit like 24-25? I know it's common to oversign some, but 10 seems excessive
Down the backstretch they come…
With just 27 days left until National Signing Day, the rush is on for SEC schools to bait, hook, and reel in as many recruits as possible. Below you’ll get an idea of just how well they’re doing.
As usual, we use the star rankings provided by Rivals.com. For each star the Rivals folks hand out, we award one point. But for the prospects they’ve yet to grade — the dreaded 0-star recruits — we also assign a point. Call us softies.
We then look at the numbers in three different ways. First, we look at the total talent being brought into a program. That’s the top chart. Just straight total points. Quantity.
Then, in the second chart, we rank the teams in terms of their average points-per-commitment. This gives you an idea of what type of athletes — generally — are giving handshake agreements to the SEC’s 14 schools. Quality.
In our third and final chart, we look at the number of 4- and 5-star recruits that have committed to each school. Recruiting rankings aren’t a science, but the more high-end type players a coach brings in, the better his chance of finding some diamonds. High-caliber prospects.
This week, we’ll also provide you with our overall MrSEC.com combination rankings.
|School||Commits||5-stars||4-stars||3-stars||2-stars||1- & 0-stars||Total Points|
Now the quality rankings…
Next, the high-caliber prospects…
|School||4- & 5-star Commits|
As a bonus, we’ll go ahead and provide you with our own MrSEC.com combo ranking today. First, we take the commitments as broken down above — quantity, quality, high-caliber prospects — and then we rank each school 1-14 in each category. At that point we add up each school’s three rankings to get a combination rank — the lower the score the better — that should give you an idea of how the SEC’s 14 schools currently stack up on the recruiting trail.
