I'm too young for this kind of sexually stimulating content

LSU is going to suck. We're all the down at 16.

Bama at 56 is surprising, though they have plenty of time to climb.

Not super worried, but Saban does really like to see players in camp settings and/or visits before giving the greenlight.

There's obvious exceptions, but this quarantine has thrown a wrench in that part of evaluation...

It was that way last year or the year before. They’ll be fine.

I curious how the services are evaluating kids. No camps, travel restrictions, no summer practice to get film from. No opening, no all American games, no no information since last fall.

Average score is 89. That’s nothing to brag about

Probably just watching a ton of game film.

Exactly, not saying the aren't good players I haven't followed recruting as closely lately, but most players are 3 stars. It's the # of commits that make that ranking.

They’ve gotten some studs for sure, and they should be pumped.

But at the same time, bragging about a specific ranking this early when teams like Bama, Clemson, etc. still have so much recruiting to do is a little funny.

There’s at least 5-6 lower ranked players that will be encouraged to look elsewhere soon per VQ. VOLS have not had this kind of momentum with elite players in quite a while

Great job so far Big T but it's early yet.

Not so fast. Total points mean little except teams like UT have committed a bunch of 3 stars. It's the average of the recruits that matter. Clemson is at a 4 then you have a litany of the usual suspects like OSU in the Big Ten, UF, UGA and Bama in the SEC with LSU just a little off that pace. USC and Oregon out west. The Aggies in Texas with UT just behind.

Exactly. And at least 3 will finish as strong 4*

But let them keep saying it's the 3 stars if it makes them feel better.

I guess that's one way to try and deny Tennessee's success so far.

They also have more 5-stars currently committed to them than any other school not named Ohio State. So while there are a lot of 3-stars currently in the class, there are also more 5-stars than all but one other school. Also they have momentum right now with several more 4-stars projected to commit to them in under a week.

Its very likely that all this momentum will lead to them picking up even more highly regarded players and some of those 3-stars they took early on will be let go.

Some of our 3 stars are due for bumps to 4* and I suspect that we will see some decomits as well. That's the crappy part of recruiting success but we're usually good about pointing former commits to programs where they'd fit.
