  • Thaddeus Snodgrass is the highest rated receiver to ever commit to Kentucky to play football since recruiting rankings began. He had offers from Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Notre Dame, among many others.

  • Will be interesting to see how these recruits coming into Texas A&M will be coached up. Does Summerlin maintain 10 win seasons like Richt or ride Mr. Football and then go out like Meyer….
    looking forward to seeing where Sony Michel commits. What I am hearing is UGA =)
    One thing that always conerns me – State of GA does not produce elite OFF linemen and we have a hard time recruiting elite lineman from out of state. We will get the playmakers we need ever year, just would like to see better quality lineman.

    • I wouldn’t worry whether Coach Sumlin and his staff will “coach up” his new recruits. Simply look back at last year’s team. There was only trepidation for the A&M team entering 2012. Their 2011 (7-6) team and previous recent team records indicated nothing but more mediocrity. Why did that change? It wasn’t the fact that A&M barely got into the Top 20 in recruiting annually. It wasn’t just Johnny Manziel. It was about the leadership and the winning attitude that Sumlin brought to A&M. It was about the coaching genius of Mark Synder, offensive minds of Kliff Kingsbury, Clarence McKinney and David Beaty and the defensive minds of Marcel Yates and Terry Price. And guess what? Sumlin upgraded his staff this year. It starts with the Head Coach. You know that from the great Mark Richt. The state of Georgia is plundered every year by other SEC teams. Yet, Richt and his staff find the talent and coach them up. Same at A&M. Btw, when Manziel leaves, A&M is loaded at QB. It’s great to be in the greatest conference in the country. Not only great teams but great fans! Good luck next year. It will be another BATTLE!

  • Not sure I buy these rankings, but even if reasonably accurate, team balance and schedule will play a huge part in success. I fully expect to see UGA at or near the top as the season progresses. Aaron Murray will, of course, play a key role in the DAWGS success. Check his stats for the past years and you’ll be amazed.

  • At this early point, it’s more about the individual recruit rankings. Using 247Sports composite, USC and Alabama lead with Texas A&M third. Texas is 17th and their recent trend is bringing their average down. While Texas has some talented players left on the boards, A&M is favored by some very high ranked players and should elevate their ranking by player. They are limited to about 20 players for their 2014 class. So, they won’t finish in the Top 5. In regards to the once might Texas, the entry of A&M into the SEC and more SEC teams recruiting in the state of Texas will limit the U of Texas team’s talent and contribute to their descent in the national polls; even though they are playing in a diminished Big 12.

  • Tennessee will finish with a top 5 class, possibly even the number one class. If Bates, The Berry Twins, and a couple boys from georgia and the carolinas pull the trigger. Its looking up for my Vols.
