Below is our up-to-date — as of Rivals.com’s commitment lists this morning — comparison of each Southeastern Conference class of commitments. As usual, we’ve used Rivals’ star rankings as our basis. We assign one point for every star that they pin to a prospect’s name. We then tally those points in three different areas which we then use to create our own official MrSEC.com Recruiting Rankings.

We then tally the points to determine where each program falls in our overall MrSEC.com Recruiting Rankings. And remember, the lower the total number the better…
