This is a new weekly analysis of Top 25 Team Recruiting rankings that we will provide to our College Football FREAK audience. This will be fun to follow leading up to “National Signing Day”, which is February 1st 2012.

First, a couple of disclaimers: There are many different sites and publications that provide this info, and if you follow these rankings any you will notice they vary greatly. You might ask why that is; my short answer is most sites are paid subscription based and, right or wrong, they sometimes slant in favor of their biggest subscriber base.

You can do a quick search on the internet and you will find Rivals, Scout, ESPN, 247Sports to be the big hitters out there. Based on my research, I have found 247Sports to be one of the most accurate and unbiased in their player evaluations, thus giving the fan the most accurate team rankings. Therefore the following team rankings have been provided courtesy of “247Sports”.

None the less, recruiting and/or ranking these recruits are a very inexact science. I think if your favorite team is doing a good job of player evaluating and not chasing how many “stars” a player has, along with meeting needs, you should be happy with their recruiting.

Feel free to offer up your opinions and comments below……

    I suspect Georgia is only at #16 due to the number of total verbals at this stage. They have two 5 star recruits, which is only one behind Alabama. If Georgia lands Todd Gurley, Avery Young and a few other high profile candidates I suspect they’ll easily make it into the Top 10, maybe even the Top 5.

    Hard to believe Texas A&M can be ranked that high with their coach change. new coach will bring in a lot of Housten intercity kids who can really play the game but they are not usually ranked as high as others. Also Mack brown always gets the best in Texas but can not do anything with it because he is a terrible coach just a great recuiter and has to have great assistants to do the coaching. Texas has as much great talent transfer out of there each year as many teams are able to recuit. because of poor management by head coach usually the reason .

      Interesting take Larry. I would agree with UT assesment, it seems they are always in Top5 recruiting, but rarely relevant in NC.
