good job Tulane..In spite of coaching change we are in at 69. We had a smallish class, but a bunch of transfers coming in that don't show up in ratings.

Yes, I'm not sure I've ever seen a class with eight 5* guys. Off the charts.

Out of about 30 in the country. Clemson had 5. That's nearly half in that short stretch between Athens and Clemson.

Last I checked 247, only 10 schools had signed a 5 star. USC had 4, Ohio ST and Penn St. 3, Texas and Alabama 2 and OU, Miami and LSU 1 each.

Clemson's recruiting has gone through the roof the last couple years. Guess recruits are impressed by their playoff success, as they should be.

Clemson is now in that rarified Alabama/Ohio State air where they routinely turn down 3-star guys. Other big schools like Notre Dame and Michigan have had to load up on 3-star guys recently, making their classes seem more impressive than they are. The recruiting services use a cumulative approach, so if school A signs four 3-star guys and school B signs two 5-star guys, it's 12 stars to 10 total so A is ranked higher.

But in truth, B has clearly recruited better.

The last couple of recruiting cycles have been tough on Ole Miss, which happens when your program is sanctioned and then has it's coach fired in disgrace. The 2016 class had three five stars and 12 four stars, forming the core of the fifth ranked class of the year. Now several of those top players have transferred while Matt Luke tries to rebuild confidence in the program among fans, alumni and parents in recruits' living rooms. Luke is a former player at Ole Miss and has a spotless reputation, so there is hope. This year's class did have three four stars, including Matt Carrol, a former five star Army All-American quarterback from California who was rated the No. 4 QB in the nation. They have signed more JUCO players in the last two recruiting seasons, having signed four or five JUCO All-Americans this year. The Rebels ended up with the No. 31 class, but in the SEC, that's only good enough for 10th in the conference. They are going to have a lot of work to do over the next year or so to fill in around Carrol and move back into the top half of the SEC in recruiting.
