MrSEC.com Commitment Comparator – 1/17/13

blue-chips-stackNineteen days.

That’s all that’s left between now and National Signing Day.  That’s right around 450 hours worth of time for your favorite football program to bait and hook as many top-notch prospects as possible.  Below we’ll show you just how well the teams in the SEC are 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.

First, quantity…

 

  School   Commits   5-stars   4-stars   3-stars   2-stars   1- & 0-stars   Total Points
  Texas A&M   34   0   15   18   1   0   116
  Georgia   29   0   14   15   0   0   101
  Florida   26   1   15   10   0   0   95
  LSU   25   0   17   8   0   0   92
  Alabama   21   2   12   7   0   0   79
  Ole Miss   21   0   5   16   0   0   68
  Vanderbilt   21   0   2   19   0   0   65
  Miss. State   21   0   3   14   4   0   62
  S. Carolina   19   0   5   14   0   0   62

  Tennessee   18   0   4   13   1   0   57
  Missouri   18   0   1   17   0   0   55
  Auburn   15   1   7   7   0   0   54
  Arkansas   13   0   1   11   1   0   39

 

Now the quality rankings…

 

  School   Commits   Avg. Pts/Commit
  Alabama   21   3.76
  LSU   25   3.68
  Florida   26   3.65
  Auburn   15   3.60
  Georgia   29   3.48
  Texas A&M   34   3.41
  S. Carolina   19   3.26
  Ole Miss   21   3.23
  Tennessee   18   3.16
  Vanderbilt   21   3.09
  Missouri   18   3.05
  Arkansas   13   3.00
  MSU   21   2.95
  Kentucky   20   2.90

 

And now the high-caliber recruits…

 

  School   4- & 5-star Commits
  LSU   17
  Florida   16
  Texas A&M   15
  Alabama   14
  Georgia   14
  Auburn   8
  Ole Miss   5
  S. Carolina   5
  Tennessee   4
  Miss. State   3
  Vanderbilt   2
  Missouri   1
  Arkansas   1
  Kentucky   1

 

As a bonus, we’ll go ahead and provide you with our own MrSEC.com combo ranking, too.  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.

 

  MrSEC Rank   School   Quantity Rank   Quality Rank   High-Caliber Rank   Total Points
  1   LSU   4   2   1   7
  2   Florida   3   3   2   8
  3t   Alabama   5   1   4   10
  3t   Texas A&M   1   6   3   10
  5   Georgia   2   5   4   11
  6t   Ole Miss   6   8   7   21
  6t   S. Carolina   8   7   7   22
  8   Auburn   13   4   6   23
  9   Vanderbilt   7   10   11   28
  10   Tennessee   11   9   9   29
  11   Miss. State   8   13   10   31
  12   Missouri   12   11   12   35
  13   Kentucky   10   14   12   36
  14   Arkansas   14   12   12   38

Hard not to be nervous with things in the Ozarks.  I am BB fan and his staff seems to be outstanding.  Do they have something up their sleeve?  Why have they let several recruits out of their commitment but don't seem to be getting a ton of new commits?  Not panicking, just nervous.  Would love to hear your take on the situation.

Nice breakdown - but I have 1 question: doesn't it artificially inflate TA&M in the Quantity category with 34 commits? With the SEC limit of 25, even adding back counting some, they actually can't sign all those guys can they?

The reason we include quantity as a stand-alone table is specifically to avoid over-inflating those results.  If you believe in quality, you can look at the second table.  If you're a fan of just four- and five-star guys, you can look at the third table.  Or, if you want to know who's simply signing the greatest numbers, you can view the first table.  Then we combine all three evenly into our own combo rankings in the fourth table.

 

As for A&M, they announced nine early enrollees back on January 9th.  25 + 9 = 34.  So yes, they should be able to sign a huge class.

 

Again, that's why we refer to the SEC's 25-man cap as a "soft" cap.  

 

Many thanks for reading,

John
