I was looking at the rankings and numbers on 247 and on the composite we are #12 and #7 in the SEC. But outside of Ala and Ga #3-#7 average player ranking is #3 91.16 -#7 90.49. So really 3-7 there's very little to no difference when you compare the overall average recruit.

On 247's rankings, The Vols are ranked #9 in the Country and #5 in the SEC..#2 in the East behind just Georgia. This was a very great recruiting class, especially considering we are coming off a 5-7 season. And we have the #1 recruiter in the nation!!

Just imagine what CJP and this staff will do once we make it to a bowl next season.

So we can say we have a top 10 class on one of the recruiting services!!!

Never let the truth stand in the way of a good story...

GO VOLS!
Not sure exactly what you mean, but 247 has 2 sets of rankings. The composite, which is a combination of all the services and just their rankings. We are #9 on theirs.As seen on this screenshot.

That’s the composite. 247 has us 9th.
Thank-you! Glad someone understands how 247 does theirs. But point is we had a very good recruiting class for a 5-7 team.M after of Fact The Vols are the only team ranked in the top 15 recruiting classes that had a losing record and only TN and USC were in the Top 20 with both finishing 5-7. And to finish top 10 in one and Top 12 in the composite was absolutely incredible.

#1 rated OL class, that's what mattered most and Pruitt did it.
Agreed! That was priority #1 and our Coach's did an incredible job. Wait till next year when we finish with a winning record and make a bowl! Just shows how elite this recruiting staff is and adding Tee made us even more elite as a recruiting staff. Not to mention a really great LB and Secondary class coming in.

That screenshot shows UT at #12 when I look at it, with Auburn at #11 and Penn St at #13.

Not sure they’re 5* guys now.
True. The final star ratings will be adjusted and announced once the dust settles and the services know where everybody landed.

And despite the most recent decree limiting class sizes to 25, it's reassuring to know oversigning (particularly by Bama) is still alive and well. Tradition is important.

Also shoutout to Niedermeyer he is now the #1 rated recruiter in the class of 2019.

All of us need to keep in mind you cannot be the #1 recruiter if you're not doing the best job of all schools out there in that category, Bama and Clemson included. This is a huge coup IMO and will be a major incentive to CJP and staff to get these kids coached up and on the field asap.

Big disparity in PSU’s rankings. 13 composite, but 3 in 247’s rating?!?
