SEC Commitment Comparator – 4/3/13

blue-chips-stackUh-oh.

It’s only 44 weeks until National Signing Day 2014.  Is your favorite SEC team in good shape?

Obviously, it’s way too early to be making any judgements about recruiting classes.  Especially when commitments made 10 months out have about as much meaning as The Beatles’ “Revolution 9.”

Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t shake the packages under the tree and dream, does it?

As always, we use Rivals’ rankings.  For every star they assign, we hand out a point.  Except we also provide a point for all 0-star prospects as, eventually, they will be scouted and graded:

 

  School   Commits   5-stars   4-stars   3-stars   2-stars   1- & 0-stars   Total Points   Pts/Commit
  Texas A&M   10   0   6   4   0   0   36   3.60
  Florida   8   0   5   3   0   0   29   3.62
  LSU   8   0   5   3   0   0   29   3.62
  Ole Miss   8   0   4   3   0   1   26   3.25
  Tennessee   7   0   4   3   0   0   25   3.57
  Georgia   4   0   3   1   0   0   15   3.75
  Arkansas   4   0   2   2   0   0   14   3.50
  Vanderbilt   5   0   1   3   0   1   14   2.80
  Alabama   3   0   2   1   0   0   11   3.66
  Kentucky   2   0   1   1   0   0   7   3.50
  Missouri   3   0   0   1   0   2   5   1.66
  Auburn   2   0   0   2   0   0   4   2.00
  Miss. State   1   0   0   1   0   0   3   3.00
  S. Carolina   1   0   0   1   0   0   3   3.00

 

Observations:

*  We said it before they joined the SEC, we said it when they joined the SEC, and we still say it now… the Aggies are sitting on a gold mine of a program at Texas A&M.  The combination of Johnny Manziel, Kevin Sumlin, and the national exposure provided by a leap to the SEC could not have been scripted any better.  Texas A&M is LSU pre-Nick Saban.  With the right coach — and that coach might be Sumlin — the Aggies should be able to run with the nation’s elite on a regular basis.

*  Florida and LSU at the top of an SEC recruiting chart?  Shocking.

*  Ole Miss took advantage — as Hugh Freeze has admitted — of a number of contacts, ties, and special circumstances that allowed them to haul in a top 10 recruiting class this past February.  But in converting those opportunities in 2013, the Rebels appear to have also turned themselves into a hot name moving towards 2014, too.

*  Tennessee seems to following in Ole Miss’ footsteps.  Butch Jones used a number of ex-Vol offspring to kickstart his 2014 recruiting push.  Now those early commitments from big name “legacies” are helping to lure in others.  UT fans would surely be happy if Jones could continue to mimic Freeze’s early successes in Oxford.

*  Based on recent history, there’s a 0% chance of Alabama and Auburn not racing up into the top four or five slots on our table by the time February rolls around.

*  Think this is an important year for Gary Pinkel at Missouri?  The Tigers disappointed last year (thanks in large part to injuries).  But Pinkel has been in Columbia for a long time and that’s rarely a good thing.  After a while, fans turn.  And when grumbling fans have to look at so-so recruiting numbers after a so-so season on the field, well, it makes for an uncomfortable offseason for coaches.

HCGP definitely has the natives restless. It will be a Show Me year for him and if it isn't one to be proud of, despite what he has done to pull this program back up from dormancy and apathy of the anti-athlete administrations of the late 70s to the late 90s Mike Alden won't have a choice. The move to the SEC started this growth and nothing will stop it. Upwards or out!

John: As far as Mizzou is concerned, you hit the head right one the nail. Gary Pinkel is going to go from the Bunsen Burner to the Flamethrower if he doesn't improve his SEC won-lost record, make a trip to even a middling bowl game, and fails to recruit a top 20 class. I wonder who will be available once the head coach search party sets out next December?

The chart says 7 commits for Tennessee, but 8 commits are listed (4 and 4).  


Also, does this include D'Andre Payne who committed this morning?
