Towards NSD we talked about the number of commits we would be able to take this year. 21 commits for GT this year was a lot of commits for us. When you look at the number of commits for a four year period (2011-2014), we had the third least commits at 74. This was the third least with only Northwestern (72) and Stanford (73) having fewer. For the four years of 2010-2013, we had the fewest at 71. A few observations. It is a distinct benefit to have more recruits since they don't always work out, even 4 or 5 star recruits. When you recruit 1/3 more players (UGAg 99 to GT 74), you have a much better chance of having the kids who work out on the field. The best academic schools in general have fewer recruits. Probably because the kids go to these schools for the right reasons - academics - and stay in school. In addition to GT, NW and Stanford, Duke has a low number of recruits and so does BC. (UGAg has a high number since Richt has recruited those who go on to commit crimes and leave the team.) CPJ should continue to be commended for honoring his scholarship commitments. His recruiting practices result in lower numbers of commits and puts us at a disadvantage, but it's the right thing to do. Hopefully, this is used in the recruits living rooms when talking to the kids parents and the kids. 5 years at GT is worth the investment for the next 50 that they will be working. I got around to updating my Scout recruiting and JHowell Power Ranking database and will be posting a few other things. The pdf of just the 4 year average of recruit numbers is attached.
