Default 2013 Ole Miss recruiting class vs. 2007 USC recruiting class

Since we were having a discussion of the two recruiting classes in Wesley Green's thread, I decided to create a thread in hopes of moving the discussion here, away from Green's thread.

Well let's compare the classes, solely on the four and five stars.

2007 USC recruiting class - Ranked 6th Nationally, 3rd in the SEC
List of four star commits:
Cliff Matthews - #2 WDE, from SC
Mark Barnes - #3 ATH, five star on Scout, from SC
Chris Culliver - #8 CB from NC, five star on Rivals
Stephen Garcia - #6 QB, from Florida
Travian Robertson - #10 DT from NC
Melvin Ingram - #6 ILB from NC
Brian Maddox - #12 RB, one of the top RBs on ESPN, from SC
Ladi Ajiboye - GA
Akeem Auguste - NC
Jason Barnes - NC
Quintin Richardson - SC
Clifton Geathers - SC
Joseph Hills - FL
Weslye Saunders - NC
Dion Lecorn - FL

See, just about all of those guys are from NC or SC, where the closest SEC school is USC, and UNC was down at that time from what I remember.

As for Ole Miss' class last year - NR 8; SEC Rank 4
Robert Nkemdiche - #1 overall, from GA, five star
Laremy Tunsil - #1 OT, from FL, five star
Laquon Treadwell - #1 WR, from IL, five star
Tony Conner - #5 S, from MS, five star
Austin Golson - #8 OT, from AL
Lavon Hooks - #1 DT, from MS
Kailo Moore - #7 APB, from MS
Nickolas Brassell - #1 ATH, from MS
Mark Dodson - #16 RB, from TN
Joran Wilkins - #10 APB, from TN
Ryan Buchanan - #16 QB, from MS

A lot of instate talent that year helped Ole Miss, but what confuses me is how they were able to get Treadwell, Tunsil, and Golson. Golson decommitted from FSU and switched to Ole Miss less than a week later, all in the week before signing day (fi$hy). And Tunsil and Treadwell could go to better programs that are closer to home.

Default Re: 2013 Ole Miss recruiting class vs. 2007 USC recruiting class

Both classes IMO benefited from positive momentum from within each class, as more big-name prospects joined it would help attract others into joining as well. Ole Miss benefited also from bringing in Nkemdiche's older brother who wasn't that highly rated but turned into a star player for the Rebels in his first season.

USC's class of 27 only had five (5) in-state prospects in it four (4) of which were 4* rated by Rivals, while Ole Miss' class of 27 had ten (10) from MS, five (5) of which were 4* rated. Ole Miss' class had an average star rating of 3.56 (3-5*, 9-4*), while USC's was 3.42 (1-5*, 14-4*). Overall, I think the classes were pretty similar....
