I think it's USC and then everyone else at this point.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Should be close. Bama still has a few five stars left in play as does Auburn. All three classes, as well as Michigan's, are ridiculous.
On average ratings, USC's class is better than Bama's.
I think 247 counts the best 18 guys. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. If so I would think USC would have the #1 class by the end of it.
There are nine 5* recruits that haven't committed yet, and they are what separate the men from the boys at the top of the rankings. In my opinion, Alabama. Auburn and usc have enough of them already to make the top 5. The other two spots are still up in the air.
All recruits contribute to the point total but once a team reaches 18, each subsequent recruit adds little to the total.
Notice the absence of Corch Urb's team on that list.
Is he still at tOSU?
Hard to keep up with all his moves.
Again, check out the average per recruit rankings.
Ohio State is ahead of Michigan.
I think he took the job with the Dolphins, failed miserably, lied, lied again and then came back to the college game with his tail between his legs.
Oh wait, that was that little guy.

IMO, if a team with 24 recruits has a better average star rating than a class with 25 recruits, the class with 24 is better.
But 22 compared to 14 is a major difference, and that puts Michigan over the top right now IMO. Let's see what their avg rating is when they complete their class.
3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
Dude, I just looked at the rankings. You guys aren't even in the top 10 anymore. What happened? You have some decommits or something?

I'd guess that has to do with the 247 staff destroying any shred of credibility they had by downgrading Marshall to a four star.
Do we really need to bring up the "little guy's" last couple games against the heartbreak kid?
Do we really need to bring up tOSU's record against the team that the little guy is currently coaching?
I can tell you some things that Urbs leads in: Arrests (we could probably just count the ones in Columbus, honestly) and trips to the hospital.
FSU won't challenge this year. We're going to sign a very good class but we'll be in the 6-9 range.
I think it finishes
and inexplicably dropping Foster to #7.
USC should finish top-3, however, do to total numbers will fall short of the top spot. USC will be #1 after today, and will stay there until UA receives their next 4-star or higher commit.
Getting hurt a bunch and not competing at camps make it hard to not let people jump you. Other kids have just been able to prove more this summer.
Not sure why it matters. Anyone that is a 5* should be a gamechanger, regardless of where they are ranked.
Foster also has some Jeff Luc to his resume as well. Yeah he's an absurd high school MLB but he's also 6'0 250 already. If he gets to 265 what happens. Levon Kirkland?
Depends on the position of the commit with the way they do the rankings. If it was someone like Kamara (not saying it is), that would be a 3rd highly ranked RB which wouldn't move the needle that much at all. Of course, none of this really matters and is just fun for the next few weeks.
I don't think we'll have a big enough class to finish in the top 5.
