MrSEC.com Commitment Comparator – 1/25/13

blue-chip-square-smallThere are 12 days til National Signing Day.  Do you know where your school’s blue-chippers are?

According to Rivals.com, they’re most likely talking to someone from Alabama or Florida right about now.  Rivals’ new team rankings give Alabama and Florida the lead over Notre Dame, Southern Cal, Ohio State and everyone else when it comes to capturing the mythical recruiting national championship.

But if you’re wondering how your favorite SEC school is doing in comparison with its rivals, we’ll show you exactly how they are doing below.

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…

History has shown that there really aren't more than about 5 in the entire country each year that deserve to be 5 stars.

Why are we such a joke?

 @JamesPorter 1. Arkansas just came off one of the worst years in school history, 2. For almost the entire year, the Hogs have had a coaching staff everybody knew was going away, so hard for recruits to get a sense of who they wouold really be playing for, and that meant a less than cohesive approach from the coaching staff to the recruiting process, 3. Current players are a big part of the recruiting process, and it was obvious a lot of the upperclassmen just did not have their hearts in it this year, 4. Arkansas, to be effective in recruiting, has to have a very good recruiting year in Texas to break into the upper half of the SEC, and the arrival of A&M in the SEC took a lot of the luster of leaving Texas to go out of state to Arkansas to play on an SEC team.

 

1-3 are short term problems the school can fix with its new coaching staff (who look pretty good, but got on board a little late to impact much of the recruitment for this year, but number 4 will have long term negative impact for Arkansas, assuming the Aggies are successful in sustaining the momentum for the next two or three years.

 

Good news, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in the Big XII are facing the same issue with number 4 as you guys are.

I don't think Arkansas took too many recruits from Texas A&M in the past...A&M's success will hurt Texas and Oklahoma more than Arkansas.A&M in the SEC is getting the conference more coverage from the media in the state, which should help Arkansas.  They should be trying to displace Oklahoma as the biggest out-of-state destination for athletes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
