@ScottEnyeart We don't really pay attention to the 85 here, because Mora's been cutting the fat in offseasons. But they're at 26 commits.

They cut a lot of kids last year too. U-Dub will do the same this year(they had 13 kids graduate this year and took about 21 this year).

You have to be happy with your recruiting class. Looks like you got a couple of guys that should be able to get to the QB.

I'm most excited about our skill position haul. James Clark and Corey Smith could contribute early if our current WRs underwhelm early in the season again.

Ecstatic. Lots of great talent. Hopefully more than half pan out.

D-Line, Linebackers, and DBs all look like they can have an impact.

The skills players on offense will help a ton, as the team is lacking there.

The OL is lacking in depth, but the quality of the kids that they got seems good.

I did a little research after hearing some idiots claim "recruiting classes don't matter." I used Rivals team recruiting rankings.

- Every National Championship winner since Rivals.com started, has had at least a top 22 recruiting class in each of the four years prior to winning it all.

- Only two teams '05 Texas and '10 Auburn won the National Championship without THREE top 10 recruiting classes in the previous four years.

- Only '10 Auburn did not have at least one top 2 recruiting class in the previous four years.

- The recruiting rankings of the National Championship winner's senior / redshirt junior class are: 1, 1, 7, 11, 15, 2, 2, 1.

I think everyone who follows recruiting knows how important recruiting is, but it's still pretty crazy when you look at the numbers.

Good work!

I think top 10 and then top 20 matter a whole bunch. Where they rack and stack in there doesn't matter, too much, IMO. It's all a crapshoot and only half of these kids ever pan out. Which is why oversigning is such a huge deal.

It definitely is a big deal to be able to bring in consistent talent. After that coaching, development, and system make a big difference as well. Oregon for example has been a major title contender the last few years and they haven't really been much of a recruiting power. They are more the exception, but an example of development/coaching/system.

While the Alabama dominance has had a major influence on P-L's stats (I'm not arguing against them), there have been plenty of big time recruiting classes that have flopped. Its more the ability of Saban to take than talent and develop them into studs.

I'm actually bummed Kelly left Oregon. His success on the field was started to be reflected in recruiting and I would have loved to see what he could do with a couple of consecutive big time classes.

I think Kelly and Saban are both great coaches, but the difference between the two programs is absolutely the talent they bring in. If Oregon brought in anywhere near the talent that Alabama brought in, I think Kelly would've had two championships by now.

The point of my post was also not to suggest that recruiting well guarantees success, but rather that you can't really win championships without recruiting at a very high level.

You also have to coach it up and not have lapses against inferior opponents. USC had a class one year with like 8 to 10 five stars and walked away with a grand total of zero national championships.

I think there is some correlation between top classes and top teams, but a lot of what goes into Rivals (and everywhere else) rankings is who offers and where they commit to. Alabama keeps getting top ranked guys because they're going to Bama.

In general, the schools that get the best talent will be better, but there are tons of teams with top classes that still don't compete for national titles.

Texas A&Ms last 4 years were 22, 17, 27 and 15. Good, but not a team you'd expect to contend for an SEC title last year (and likely a NC this year). A lot of that has to do with Manziel, but their OL and DL were fantastic last year.

Meanwhile Texas was 5, 3, 3, 2 the last 4 years. And they blew dick. Oregon has solid rankings, but not great. KState was in the 60s the past few years. I'm sure there are more (especially with high ranking teams being bad).

Again, there's correlation between being good and having a high ranking, but I don't think it's a something that's dependent on each other.

Also Rivals rankings are complete **** now that 247 stole all their guys.
