Top 100 Players for Scout, Rivals, 247 - Edit

Submitted by umhero on January 11th, 2012 at 1:12 AM

As we approach the finish line for recruiting, I thought it might be interesting to compare the Top 100 players for each of the top 3 recruiting sites.

As fans, we tend to favor the particular site that ranks our recruits the highest.  I thought it might be interesting to see how many players are universally lauded.

Seven of our current commits are in the Top 100 of at least one site, but surprisingly only two* of our current commits made all three lists.  Scout would seem to be our favorite service this year since they have five our our current commits on their list.

Other schools of note for their success:

- Alabama has ten recruits that make at least one of the lists.

- Florida State has seven recruits that make at least one of the lists.

- Texas has eleven recruits that make at least one of the lists.

- Miami (YTM) has six recruits that make at least one of the lists.

 

B1G Members & Notre Dame:

- Iowa has only one recruit that makes at least one of the lists.

- Michigan State has only one recruit that makes at least one of the lists.

- Northwestern has only one recruit that makes at least one of the lists.

- Notre Dame has seven recruits that make at least one of the lists.

- Ohio State has five recruits that make at least one of the lists.

- Penn State has two recruits that make at least one of the lists (one is Armani Reeves).

- Wisconsin has three recruits that make at least one of the lists.

 

With just a few weeks until signing day there are still 35 uncommited players that make one of the three top 100 lists.

The composite list in alphabetical order by School of interest:

* Edit - Corrected an error in the Rivals list and resorted by School of interest.  Thanks to RickH for pointing out the error (I left off two players on the Rivals list which moved all the players below them up two spots.)

Kyle Kalis is ranked #21 on Rivals and you didn't include it.  Don't know if anything else is missing though...

Edit: Ondre Pipkins is ranked #59 on Rivals.

I think this kind of multi-site aggregation is very useful.  What you did here is great. 

Even more wonderful would be a master rankings presentation that includes ESPN and provides the mean overall or positional ranking for each player.  (I realize the positional thing becomes difficult because the sites don't use the same categories and sometimes categorize the same player differently anyway.)

This does not surprise me. As we know Top 5 classes do not automatically equal BCS titles but,  I would rather be us at this point with Garnett and Reeves to go rather than Sparty or the Huckeyes. 

Frankly I look for this to improve, when I hear Hoke speak about the University and acountability to the team and each other I don't know how you could turn that down over guys like Meyer, Kelley, Saban etc who have have not 1/10th the personna of Hoke and Mattison. I mean Mattison left Ravens to come coach 18 year old kids!! Hoke came to UM without knowing what he was going to get paid. Very rare in todays world. That is where I would go and that is where I would want my son to go. Plus I love Michigan!!

Go Blue!
