Below is our much too early commitment comparator for the class of 2015. Only, it really isn’t much too early. As the recruiting process speeds up and prospects commit earlier and earlier, those schools that get out to an early jump on the competition typically gain momentum throughout the process. Using social media, committed players often work as recruiting agents for their schools of choice, luring in friends and contacts from camps and all-star teams.
As always, we’ve used the star ratings provided by Rivals.com to put together our own quickie update. For now, we’ll look only at quantity (total points) and quality (average points per commit). For each star Rivals has assigned, we’ve awarded a point. Where Rivals hasn’t provided a star grade (because they haven’t viewed tape of a prospect yet), we have awarded a lone point anyway because we’re softies.
So where does your team rank in comparison with its SEC foes? Here’s your answer…
|School||Commits||5-stars||4-stars||3-stars||2-stars||1- & 0-stars||Total Points||Avg. Pts/Commit|
As a reminder, Alabama and Tennessee finished among the top four in the SEC in total points last signing day. Alabama, LSU, Tennessee and Texas A&M also finished among the top five in the league in average points per commit. The takeaway? The top schools in the 2013/14 recruiting field are off to hot starts for 2014/15 as well.
