Someone was asking about team recruiting rankings yesterday (I think), and I stumbled upon this on Rivals today. They list the top recruiting classes at this point, though there is a lot of time left between now and signing day in February. They have us ranked #10, ahead of such traditional recruting powers as USC and Notre Dame. We are also the fifth-highest class in the SEC, behind only Bama, LSU, Florida, and Georgia.
There is a lot of time left, and I tend to agree with the article when they say we may not stay in the top ten. However, if we could add Brassell and Singleton, I think we could easily finish in the top 15, which could potentially be our best class ever. I think Nutt's abilities as a recruiter have been underrated. The guy seems to continually put solid classes together year-after-year for us, and it will pay big dividends down the road. I think I am most excited about the possibility of having legit depth in the future- something we really have never had. We had a solid team of starters when Eli was a senior, but I remember seeing a noticeable dropoff whenever second-teamers entered the game.
