So go back to this article to see which teams made the top 25 for recruiting avg over the past 5 years in College Football. It is a the bottom of the page fore reference:
Here are the number of former top 100 recruits that will be on each roster this fall. Obviously further attrition could happen but as of today this is what it would look like:
- Ohio State-31
- Florida State & Texas-17
- Penn State-13
- Texas A&M, Florida, Tennessee & Norte Dame-12
- Michigan, Auburn, Miami and Oregon-10
- Mississippi State, UCLA, and Washington-6
- South Carolina & Ole Miss-3
Clearly Alabama, Ohio State and Georgia are drastically out front. After that there is a lot more parity the rosters overall top 100 talent level are similar per team. Here is the comparison of top 100 players overall per conference with teams in the top 25 (remember other teams outside top 25 might have top 100 players).
SEC (127), Big Ten (56), Pac 12(47),ACC (41) Big 12 (31)
