    In scouring the pool of prospects, curiosity got the best of me and I decided to do a little research. I was wondering what interest recruits have coming out of preseason. I found some very interesting things with this year's class.

    Alabama
    ESPN 150s with the Tide at #1 (20)
    1, 2, 4, 8, 10, 11, 13, 17, 23, 34, 37, 38, 50, 52, 56, 70

    UNC and USC
    ESPN 150s with the Tar Heels at #1 (12)
    12, 22, 24, 25, 35, 42, 53, 69, 92, 107, 114, 140
    ESPN 150s with the Trojans at #1 (12)
    5, 49, 63, 79, 89, 96, 105, 106, 108, 124, 133, 135

    Texas
    ESPN 150s with the Longhorns at #1 (9)
    27, 30, 45, 47, 48, 62, 85, 88, 120

    TCU
    ESPN 150s with the Horned Frogs at #1 (9)
    77, 95, 110, 111, 113, 117, 126, 142, 150

    Oklahoma
    ESPN 150s with the Sooners at #1 (8)
    3, 6, 15, 16, 19, 29, 41, 123

    Ohio State and Penn State
    ESPN 150s with the Buckeyes at #1 (7)
    14, 21, 40, 51, 65, 74, 132
    ESPN 150s with the Nittany Lions at #1 (7)
    20, 31, 64, 99, 118, 131, 147

    Rutgers and Fresno State
    ESPN 150s with the Scarlet Knights at #1 (6)
    57, 58, 90, 98, 136, 143
    ESPN 150s with the Bulldogs at #1 (6)
    81, 93, 102, 121, 125, 134

    Georgia and Texas A&M (5)
    ESPN 150s with the Bulldogs at #1 (5)
    7, 9, 25, 75, 83

    From there Boise State, Florida State, and Florida all have 4, with all of Boise's falling in the Top 100 (44, 68, 72, 87). Auburn, Oklahoma State, and South Carolina have 3. Miami, Utah, and Tennessee have 2. Cal, Houston, LSU, Michigan State, Miinesota, Nebraska, Oregon, Toledo, and UCF all have 1.
    Looks like winning gets you in with the high end with Alabama (17 in the Top 100) and UNC (9 in the Top 100). Moral of the story, win more games and you get better guys.:thumbsup:

    Great breakdown JCA! Yeah I noticed that recruits in the Top 150 this season were flocking to UNC. Would have been great had I stayed ther but now I am having to recruit against them for alot of players.

    Very interesting
    what the hell is up with TCU and Fresno? Plus, I don't think Texas has ever finished better than 3rd in the Big XII south

    I win yet I have nothing, especially more than half the programs mentioned. Hell 11-3 last year with losses to UNC and OU (twice). My program just sucks!

    I think conference or division titles may have something to do with it, but doesn't explain why Mizzou is left out

    Awesome post, JC'. Can't believe how easy 'Bama has it! (Oh, wait, yes I can!) Also, I think you deserve a ton of credit for some the the classes you've been able to put together. As a 6-star program in Florida, I assumed that you would have (many) more players interested in your program from the start. Mizz', have you worked on expanding your pipeline states?

    yup they stayed at 3!! now that want me to Beat UVA(could do) Beat UNC(will need a damn miracle) and Finish in the Top 3 of the ACC. My true Fresh QB better play his ass off and find his targets or its going to be a long season. Only bright note is i don't have a lot of SRs on Offense so they can do nothing but get better

    I was surprised with the turnover in the Big 12 no one wanted to take over Texas, for that very reason. And I hear they have a pretty good young QB over there. I believe his name is Santonio Dunlap. :oops:

    Still no respect...

    me too!

    What do you need to do to get a 5th star? Finish in the top 5?

    No, I believe it's a Top 10 finish or major bowl victory. For the 6th, you need a Top 5 finish.

    Looked at it more today, this year we started out at #2 with 24, so I'm not that good at recruiting, just have to find the right way to talk shit about some of your programs to show these kids Miami is where they want to be. ;)
