Talent on SEC Rosters by Average Star Ranking

It is not a big surprise seeing the two conference kingpins at the top, but look at Georgia. That’s not the sort of score you’d expect to see from a team that went 8-5 last year. That goes to show just how badly its defensive execution and scheme was holding the Bulldogs back. From top to bottom, UGA has enough talent to be at the top.Also, note the wide gulf between LSU and Tennessee. That shows the difference between teams that end up in the top 10 recruiting rankings every year (the top four) and those that don’t. Also worth noting is that total team average has nothing to do with expected finish. Mississippi State is expected to be on the border between going to a bowl and not, and it’s basically even with supposed SEC West contender Arkansas.
