G5 Recruiting on 247 Sports: 2015 through 2018

This Average Recruiting Rank (ARR) is from one source, 247 Sports! Rivals only ranks down to 100 and ESPN stops at 75; 247 was the only site, of the three we use at Sully’s College Football Page (SCFP), that gave us access to all 130 team’s ARR.

Boise State was the best recruiting G5 during those years according to 247 Sports and yet, their ARR, when factored in with the the Power 5 (P5) teams was 61.5. This score is reflected in the ARR column listed below. In other words, 60 of the 66 P5 teams ARR was better than Boise State’s (#1 of G5 Teams) 61.5, Cincinnati 63.0, Central Florida 65.3, & so on down the line!

An element that surprised me was how high Luke Fickell has Cincinnati, I would have never guessed that the Bearcats were the best recruiting program in the AAC from 2015 through 2018 and the 2nd best in the G5 ranks! Somewhat shocking!
