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