Recruiting Ratings

                 ESPN, 247 Sports, & Rivals  / Four Year Recruiting Composite

 

The recruiting chart presented below is a 4 year composit of ESPN's, 247's, & Rivals' respective scoring systems.

The recruiting classes used were 2019 - 2022.

We took each site and calculated a 4 year team average specific to that site's data.

So the number listed under Rivals was arrived at independently of ESPN's or 247's process.

The number listed is the average rank a team earned on that site over a 4 year period

So Georgia's average class rank in Rivals during that time frame (2019 - 2022) was 2.3 / best on Rivals; yet 2nd best in the country when 247 Sports & ESPN are factored into the Matrix!

We repeated this process with the other 2 sites (ESPN & 247) and, not surprizingly, arrived @ different 4 year averages. The Dawgs, in that same time frame (2019 thru 2022), earned a  2.5 average on ESPN & 2.25 according to 247 calculations. Bama was ranked higher on both ESPN (1.75) & 247 Sports (1.5) and as a result, the Tide; not the Dawgs, head into the 2022 season with the best recruited (4 year average) roster in the nation!

That said, do not overlook/forget about the Tranfer Portal, as it can signicantly impact a roster & a season's result (Michigan State 2-5 in 2020 / 11-3 in 2021 / The Spartans had only the 42nd ranked recruited class, on ESPN, for the 2021 season) however, they brought in 20 plus transfers and it changed everything ... 2-5 to 11-3!

Ok! Now back to our assessment of Recruited Classes!

We then take the three independent scores and calculated a three site / four year composite.

Please note, the teams listed below are Power 5 Conference teams only, with BYU & ND added into the count! A total of 66 Teams are assessed!
