Interesting article about each teams recruiting relative to their historical average.

 

Here are how MWC teams did:

 

In 2020, which teams most exceeded (or failed to meet) their typical class ranking standards?

School Recruiting Baseline* 2020 ranking Difference (big is good, - is bad)
       
San Diego State 69.20 109 -39.80
Fresno State 82.63 120 -37.38
Hawaii 89.63 126 -36.38
Nevada 91.25 123 -31.75
San Jose State 88.13 115 -26.87
Colorado State 77.80 101 -23.20
New Mexico 95.47 118 -22.53
Utah State 97.75 116 -18.25
Wyoming 99.75 112 -12.25

Most rankings are relative as it is depending on how many player sign.  Teams have different amount of scholarships available.  UNLV signed around 26 players while others signed around18.   I prefer to look at the average ranking of players signed, and not there total score.

Aztecs only signed 18 because they only had fifteen seniors and a couple of early exits.

Lets talk about this group in '23 or '24. It makes more sense to see how the 2014 and 2015 classes panned out.

Its about how you coach em up more so than some mythical rating system designed to placate fans who have no life outside of how well their team is doing.

Looks like Wyoming and Boise were the Only MWC teams that were able to hold their own states in recruiting, although UNLV owns Alaska.

Boise lost the two best recruits in their state.

Don't know the methodology for the map, just sharing stuff I thought you guys may find interesting during football offseason.

Boise signed two of the top five (only one who signed more than one). And the 2nd and 3rd rated guys had the exact same rating.

Yes. This guy might be a statistician of sorts but his study is garbage in, garbage out.

Kirk used 247's points, correct? As such, it appears SDSU had a bad year. But what if he had instead used average ranking per player? In that case, SDSU had the second best class in the conference behind Boise. Or if he had used average player rankings by Rivals, SDSU had the best class in the conference: https://n.rivals.com/team_rankings/2020/mwest/football

Sucks hard that SDSU couldn't manage to get the best players in its own state.

You know, like USC managed to do. Oh wait . . . .

Or like ASU managed to do. Oh wait . . .
