It's been three weeks since our last check of the MrSEC.com recruiting big board and there's been some shifting at each and every school in the interim.  For those not marking the days off your calendar, National Signing Day 2015 is exactly 25 weeks from today.  So your favorite school still has about 175 days to improve its lot and its standing in the MrSEC.com overall recruiting rankings.

Below, we handle things as we always do: Rivals.com's star rankings, a point assigned for each star (and points awarded for 0-star prospects too), three categories of grades.  First, we look at Quantity which is the sheer number of "talent points" each school has committed to it right now.  Second, we breakdown the Quality of each class, providing an average-points-per-commit score.  Third, we look only at high-end prospects, those 4- and 5-star prospects most likely to star in college.  Finally, we tally up each school's place in those three areas, assign a point for their standing, add those points up provide you with our own official MrSEC.com Recruiting Rankings for this August 13th.  

So let's dive in...
