CrimsonKat Posted January 28, 2012 Share Posted January 28, 2012 You often hear people say that they do not pay any attention to rankings. Everyone who has followed college football recruiting with even a passing interest can name for you a two star recruit who became an All-American and a five star recruit who is bagging groceries at the local Piggly Wiggly. I would suggest though, at least over the last 10 years, that recruiting rankings for teams and players have been a very reliable predictor of team and player success on the field.Certainly, there are outliers, but the overall numbers across the board do not lie. As I mentioned in another thread, you give me 10 random five stars and I will give you 20 random three stars and we can compare notes in three or four years. Same as far as comparing the Top Five in Recruiting Rankings to the last 10 teams in the Top 25 of recruiting rankings. In the following replies, I am going to post some statistics/analysis as far as team and player recruiting rankings. Feel free to add your own and let me know your thoughts.
