This doesn’t look good, Mean Green Faithful. I hope I’m missing something.

 

We have 8 scholarship seniors, 1 of which is our punter and another 1 of which is our kicker which are positions that Littrell has never offered scholarships to High School players from. You don’t sign 20 high school kids when you’re only graduating 6 non-specialists.

It’s going to be a small class of traditional recruits, with players transferring out likely to get replaced with players transferring in.

This.  These rankings are not only based on quality but lean heavily towards volume.  We are going to have a small HS class for the reasons noted above and thus a lower ranking.

I'm not overly concerned here, as I don't take much stock in these ranking systems. How many years running has UT had top 10 recruiting classes? I digress......

UT is an outlier. 

Recruiting rankings and on field performance typically stride together. It just doesn't mean a lot, in means everything in terms of success.

Recruiting rankings are a fun thing to ponder, but do they really mean anything?

Very little for schools like NT, who seldom get anything but 3 star recruits.  A 3 star basically means anyone that gets a D! ship.  

Then the parsing of the number value that someone stuck on the record by some unknown process.

I was a bit skeptical of this explanation, so I checked UTSA’s depth chart to see if others are kicking our tail in recruiting while being “young” like us.  
 

Good lord, UTSA better win this year because their starters are VERY senior heavy.

One thing I’ll say about that is that schools treated the COVID year differently with how they list their eligibility on their rosters. After the 2020 season, we listed our players with the exact same grade classification in 2021 that they had in 2020. Most schools, including UTSA, did choose to progress their players’ grade classifications forward a year like what normally would have happened.

So UTSA does have a lot of players listed as seniors who are eligible for another season due to the 2020 COVID eligibility freeze, including Frank Harris and Zakhari Franklin. They are listed as seniors but have the same eligibility as guys like Deshawn Gaddie and Jyaire Shorter, who we list as juniors.
