The last few years there has been a lot of discussion of the number of stars that Coach Rodriguez's committed recruits are rated with. I am certain that as Michigan's record improves, the higher rated recruits will start committing again.
Scout.com posted information on the 2010 NFL draft, and the number of stars (scout eval only) each player was given when they were coming out of highschool. Here is the article:
I figured there would be fewer 5 star players than the other rated players, simply because there are so few players given a 5 star rating each year. Although, I was surprised how even it was across all rankings.
Here are the totals:
5* - 30
4* - 65
3* - 50
2* - 63
NR - 47
In summary, as has been posted here many times before... Recruiting ranking doesn't determine how good a player will turn out to be.
