How 2011 All-SEC Team Ranked as Recruits

1

This is an article by ESPN's Chris Low that examines the current All-SEC team and looks back at how they were ranked in the crootin' rankings. As Low points out, many of the players on this year's All-SEC squad were ranked fairly accurately when they were coming out of high school, which usually isn't the case. Generally these articles are a good reminder about how flawed recruiting rankings can be. On the same note, if you really want to see a great example of how rankings, stars, and recruiting conjecture are sometimes taken too seriously, click this link. That link is to Nutt's heralded signing class of 37 in 2009. You know, back when we thought Pat Patterson would be the next Jerry Rice, Darius Barksdale was going to tear it up in the SEC, and Jamar Hornsby was just a troubled young man who was coming to Ole Miss to get some heppin'. It is also a good reminder that every recruiting class has its bright spots, such as D.T. Shackleford, Mike Marry, and Charles Sawyer.
