Recruiting rankings and college Teams success
Here is the Ap Poll and here is the recruiting rankings so far . I'll its not the end all and there are some players that are lowered ranked that turn out really good but as far as team rankings it has followed the polls the last few years.Not many teams making the playoff that arent ranked high in recruiting the last 5 years.I know this is current polls dealing with 2020 recruiting but just goes to show recruits flock to highly ranked teams.

Talent wins games. Coaching obviously helps, but even the best coach can't win a championship with a bad team.

re: Recruiting rankings and college Teams success
The point still stands but you're using future recruiting rankings to prove current AP rankings correlation... Gotta look at last several years instead... Or just use 247 team talent composite...

He's showing an illustration of success on the field breeds success in recruiting.
All of those teams are winning big and highly ranked, and kids want to be a part of winning programs.
Shows how tough it is for a school to make that break into this level, as you generally need one to have the other.

The problem with that is that those teams were generally ranked about in that spot before the games were played this season... Their 2019 rankings had nothing to do with the 2020 commitments they have currently...

It's just some misplaced correlation... It exists, but the visuals chosen don't really support the claim very well.

It helps, but you need coaching. Looking at the team composite, FSU has the SIXTH most talented roster, NOT playing like it

We always had high classes with Les... unfortunately they were mostly skill positions. Give me a 4 and 5 star OL/DL and 3 star skill positions all day.

The illustrations in your post relate more to your 2nd point -- that generally speaking, top recruits want to play at top programs with very talented teammates. And the following relates more to your 1st point:

Stars don't matter. Those ranking sites just play to the teams with the most subscribers. Look at all the 5 star busts. Look at all the 3 star NFL players.

etc. etc. etc.

I really think it only goes as far as the 5 stars though, and there's only so many of those. Beyond that recruiting rankings are a crapshoot, but anyone who watches football can pick out a five star.

If this were true, Bama would sign 5-6 5 stars per year and then an equal mix of 4, 3, 2 stars. There is reason that the ranking sites and the best teams all seem to agree on who the best players are.

math is super hard...

Look at the PERCENTAGE of 5, 4, and 3 stars that make it to the NFL and get back to me.

Seems totally reasonable to compare an annual subgroup of 30ish to one that's significantly larger...
Roughly 300 kids are 4 star (10x) and more than 1000 kids end up ranked 3 star (I stopped counting... But thats over 30x)...

Edit to add: Also worth noting that the cutoff between 4 and 5 star while rigid in practice is not really a huge delineation between the 32nd and 33rd ranked kid. There's a strong correlation to recruits ranked in the top 50/100/150/etc... There's been enough articles on it at this point that if you don't believe it, I'd likely assume you are equally likely to believe in flat Earth logic.

I thought armtackle was being facetious.

It helps but it's not the end all. Kirby had us at no. 3 in recruiting when we were 8-5. Florida had a great rebound year last year and haven't taken advantage of it in recruiting.
