Default How many more recruits can we sign in 2014?

I know we are still on probation, and we currently have 17 commitments in this years recruiting class. How many more can we sign?

You can't really go by those rankings. We have some very good and needed players in this class.

We most certainly are in the top 25 but it isn't like that matters anyway.

Just looked at rivals rankings and we are now at #23. Not higher because of lack on numbers only, IMO.

Default Re: How many more recruits can we sign in 2014?

Recruiting is overrated but the ratings are over-rated. If recruiting rankings MADE a team, then Texas, Notre Dame, Florida, and Michigan would be in the top 10 every year but as you see they are not. Please don't get me wrong, recruiting is important, but it is more important to get what you need than to get the highest rated players. Truth is that less than half of players that get scholarships are on the team 3 years later. Coaching and development is the large X factor, and that is what is playing in our favor right now. Our recruiting is very solid again this year and we will get good quality players that fill our needs that we will coach and develop....Go Cocks!

Default Re: How many more recruits can we sign in 2014?

I just want to say that recruiting is important - and as much as we hate to admit it, the recruiting rankings are fairly accurate too. While they are bogus in the fact of not adequately ranking teams based on who they got instead of "what" (in terms of stars) they got, the National Champion of the past 8 years has finished in the top 10 in recruiting (per Rivals) at most 2 years before winning the Title. So obviously that has to mean something, right?

However, at the same time, three of the winningest programs the past 4 years (South Carolina, Stanford, Oregon) all have only been in the top 10 the past 10 years a total of 4 times.

Default Re: How many more recruits can we sign in 2014?

It looks like, at least on Rivals.com, class ranking is based on avg recruit rank and the total number of recruits. Our total number if recruits is low based on sanctions and having a young team. So this hurts our total points. If u rank us simply on our avg recruit rating, I think we r actually in the top 15. So this looks like a very good class it's just a small group based on this year's circumstances.

Haven't they started ranking these classes a second time in the fall? That would make the most sense. One ranking at signing day and another ranking at the end of that years regular season. That would give a more accurate picture of the class that was brought in on NSD in February.

With injuries, grades, playing time, transfers and suspensions a recruiting class in February could look a lot better or worse by the time December rolls around.

Yep, Rivals bases is not subjective to class size for some reason. Never understood that one.

A few months ago, I believe Rivals re-ranked an older class (2009 maybe?) and we finished with the second-best class

I suppose a ranking after four years is even better. Thanks for the info.

Check out our commit list.

From top to bottom this is probably the deepest talented class we've ever had.

Ignore the rankings.

Dang, we were at #21 earlier today according to Rivals, now we're at #23?

Once NSD comes and goes, I think we'll finish around #15-#18.
