SEC Commitment Comparator – 7/22/13

blue-chipIt’s been roughly a month since our last check of the recruiting big board and there’s been some shuffling in that time.

While some have emailed us to say that it’s too early to pay attention to these rankings and that early commitments don’t mean much, we strongly disagree.  Momentum on the recruiting trail is incredibly important.  The more commitments you rack up early, the more teenage recruiters you have pushing your program on Twitter and Facebook to other prospects.

Which is why we continue to present these commitment comparisons year-round.

Below you’ll find an updated overview of how the SEC’s football programs are performing out on the recruiting trail as we hit mid-July and speed toward the new football season.  As usual, we’ve used the star ratings provided by Rivals as our starting point.  Based on past history, we believe they are the most accurate at predicting future on-field team success.

For each star Rivals assigns, we award a point.  But we also give 0-star recruits a point as those kids simply haven’t had their film graded yet.

We’ll once again examine the SEC’s commitment lists in three ways, grading each according to quantity, quality and high-caliber recruits.  We start with quantity…

  School   Commits   5-stars   4-stars   3-stars   2-stars   1- & 0-stars   Total Points
  Tennessee   24   0   12   11   1   0   83
  Kentucky   20   0   6   13   1   0   65
  Ole Miss   19   0   5   10   3   1   57
  Georgia   16   1   8   4   3   0   55
  Alabama   15   0   9   5   1   0   53
  Vanderbilt   16   0   3   12   1   0   50
  Texas A&M   14   0   8   5   1   0   49
  LSU   14   0   8   4   1   1   47
  Auburn   14   0   5   7   1   1   44
  Miss. State   15   0   1   8   5   1   39
  Florida   10   0   5   4   1   0   34
  Missouri   14   0   0   7   6   1   34
  S. Carolina   10   0   5   4   1   0   34
  Arkansas   12   0   2   5   3   2   31

In case you’re wondering about the number of “quality” points added (or lost) since our last comparator back on June 24th, here’s a list…

  School   Change in Points since 6/24
  Tennessee   +29
  Vanderbilt   +20
  Georgia   +16
  Arkansas   +15
  Auburn   +13
  LSU   +12
  Miss. State   +10
  S. Carolina   +10
  Ole Miss   +9
  Alabama   +7
  Kentucky   +7
  Missouri   +6
  Texas A&M   0
  Florida   -3

Now let’s turn our attention to quality.  Below we’ve ranked the program according to the average number of points per commitment…

  School   Commits   Avg. Pts/Commit
  Alabama   15   3.53
  Texas A&M   14   3.50
  Tennessee   24   3.45
  Georgia   16   3.43
  Florida   10   3.40
  S. Carolina   10   3.40
  LSU   14   3.35
  Kentucky   20   3.25
  Auburn   14   3.14
  Vanderbilt   16   3.12
  Ole Miss   19   3.00
  Miss. State   15   2.60
  Arkansas   12   2.58
  Missouri   14   2.42

Next, we look at high-caliber talent only.  This list shows the number of 4- and 5-star players who are committed to each program…

  School   Commits   4- & 5-stars
  Tennessee   24   12
  Alabama   15   9
  Georgia   16   9
  LSU   14   8
  Texas A&M   14   8
  Kentucky   20   6
  Auburn   14   5
  Florida   10   5
  Ole Miss   19   5
  S. Carolina   10   5
  Vanderbilt   16   3
  Arkansas   12   2
  Miss. State   15   1
  Missouri   14   0

Finally, we combine all of the ranking above to create our current MrSEC.com standings.  We do this by assigning points to each program for its placement in the above tables.  The better the placement, the fewer the points (first place = one points, second place = two points, etc).  The same holds true in the overall tally with the lowest score being the best…

  MrSEC Rank   School   Quantity   Quality   High-Caliber   Total Points
  1   Tennessee   1   3   1   5
  2   Alabama   5   1   2   8
  3   Georgia   4   4   2   10
  4   Texas A&M   7   2   4   13
  5   Kentucky   2   8   6   16
  6   LSU   8   7   4   19
  7   Ole Miss   3   11   7   21
  8t   Florida   11   5   7   23
  8t   S. Carolina   11   5   7   23
  10   Auburn   9   9   7   25
  11   Vanderbilt   6   10   11   27
