    A recruiting analyst (Something Crabtree) was on the radio down here in Houston and had the Buckeyes' recruiting class ranked third nationally this year, FWIW.

    My guess is LSU will be no 1. No 2 QB recruit, no 3 RB recruit, and the top wideout, to go along with the top safety and a five star DT, among others.

    That Crabtree guy on the radio had Alabama rated number one. I just caught the tail end of that segment. I think he had LSU second and Ohio State third.

    Yeah, you could debate Alabama and LSU no 1 and 2. My take is whoever landed Reuben Randle would get the no 1 spot, and that happened to be LSU. I do give Alabama credit for being able to hang on to Trent Richardson.

    I made a quick chart of the Big East recruits that were listed as signed so far. I would imagine, aside from Syracuse, the lists are pretty complete. I added Ohio State at the end as a barometer.

    Code:
    POS	UC	CONN	UL	PITT	RUT	SFL	SYR	WV		OHST
    OL	3	2	2	4	2	5	4	5		4
    RB	0	1	2	5	2	2	0	3		3
    TE	2	0	0	1	2	1	0	0		1
    WR	2	4	3	3	2	2	1	4		3
    QB	0	1	1	1	1	1	1	1		1
    DL	7	6	5	3	5	8	2	3		4
    LB	4	1	3	2	3	4	1	3		3
    DB	5	3	7	1	3	4	5	4		4
    K	1	1	0	0	0	0	0	0		0
    P	0	0	0	0	0	0	0	0		0
    ATH	1	2	0	0	3	3	0	1		2
    
    TOTAL	25	21	23	20	23	30	14	24		25
    
    5-STAR	0	0	0	0	0	0	0	0		2
    4-STAR	2	1	1	4	4	6	0	6		15
    3-STAR	8	3	7	11	15	18	4	15		8
    2-STAR	14	17	15	0	4	6	10	3		0
    1-STAR	0	0	0	0	0	0	0	0		0
    0-STAR 	1	0	0	0	0	0	0	0		0
    										
    TOTAL  	25	21	23	15	23	30	14	24		25
    
    
    STR/REC	2.40	2.24	2.39	3.27	3.00	3.00	2.29	3.13		3.76
    The Bearcats looks as though they concentrated on the defensive side of the ball. Worth mentioning is that Ohio State had 2 five-star recruits, no one in the Big East pulled one in. Ohio State had 15 four-star recruits, the BE combined had just 22. If you didn't receive at least three stars Ohio State was not interested. Three stars in the BE and you are starting by your sophomore year.

    The most recent graduating class at UC was in the bottom half of CUSA in the recruiting rankings. That class also featured 3 All-Americans (Mickens, Byrd and Huber). 3 others in that class will likely be drafted (Canfield, DLo Smith and Barwin).

    Recruiting is fun to look at, but don't put too much stock into it.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    In college football, how you coach the kids up when they arrive on campus is infinitely more important than their 'stock' going in.

    ND is a great example of this

    I think of West Virginia with Jason Gwaltney. He was supposed to be the best RB Rich Rodriguez had ever recruited. That distinction now goes to another running back from the same class by the name of Steve Slaton.

    Your Syracuse list is complete. They didn't lose a lot of players so they don't have that many scholarships to give this year.

    Kentucky also picked up a 4 star DE in DeQuin Evans. It was down to Kentucky and Louisville, but I think the Chris Matthews factor won out.

    I checked out Louisville's class and it was pretty underwhelming.

    I never thought Chris Matthews would be so popular in Kentucky.
