The AP AA list appears regardless of class: Winston is a freshman, Manziel a sophomore, etc. etc. So this listing is reflective of all 4 years in school - 5 if you count redshirt years (Winston is a RS Fresh and Manziel is a RS Soph). So there's 20-30 5* in every class, and this listing reflects players from the past 4-5 classes, but there's only 8 total former 5* prospects listed?? Same thing with all the 4* prospects rated every cycle: only 23 of them were able to outvote the 3*-rated and lower prospects for this listing?
