Barry has shown he's totally willing to sign more players than he has scholarships for. 85 is the limit. He'll run off players to improve the roster which actually means his recruiting is better than the rankings. Pinkel tended to not tell the 5th year seniors or players that were not all that good to hit the road. Barry is using the SEC approach to building a roster.

Ok so let's get into the fun stuff.


2012-2015 (lettuce call this the foundation for which the current house is now built)

2016-2019 (the house, and since over 95% of recruits have signed I think we can use the 2019 numbers as proof. The small number of kids that might pick UGA, Bama, Ohio State or A&M won't shift the numbers so much that it makes the rest worthless.


Program === 2012-2015 ==== 2016-2019

Ohio State === 99 === 88
Penn State === 75 === 82
Wisconsin === 76 === 82
Michigan === 82 === 85
Iowa === 87 === 88
Mich State === 79 === 85


Oregon === 83 === 91
Washington === 95 === 76


Oklahoma === 103 === 98


Auburn === 97 === 85
Alabama === 99 === 99
Texas A&M === 97 === 100
UGA === 102 === 95
LSU === 99 === 91
Tenn. === 104 === 95
Arkansas === 95 === 94
USCjr === 97 === 93
Miss St === 101 === 93



Ironic isn't it, that the drop off in SEC domination (post 2016) just happens to coincide with the drop off in oversigning by most schools.

Only Texas A&M signed more recruits in this most recent 4 year window than the previous 4 years.

Miss State, UTjr, LSU and UGA all shrunk by 1/2 a class....of that group of 4, only UGA is better now than they were previously.

the SEC has their downturn and becomes a conference of 2 haves and 14 have nots..... right when most schools stop rampant over-signing....

Ok so then lettuce compare conferences.

SEC
2012-2015 = 99
2016-2019 = 94

Big 10
2012-2015 = 83
2016-2019 = 85

Pac12
2012-2015 = 89
2016-2019 = 84

OU = 103 = 98.....yikes



2012-2015 = the SEC signed 16 more players on avg. than the Big 10. Almost an entire class.
2016-2019 = the SEC signed 9 more players on avg. than the Big 10. Half a class more.

If 50% of a class "hits" (starter/significant playing time at some point in career or better) The SEC from 2012-2015 had 8 more players to "hit" than the Big 10, and from 2016-2019 have 4 or 5 more players to "hit".


Having 4-8 more quality players, maybe even 1 or 2 of which are very good, is a major advantage. To argue otherwise is asinine.
