The initial Regional Rankings, Ultimate200 and JUCO Top30 are complete. It's now time to unveil the first version of the NUC Team Recruiting Rankings for 2014. We will see what schools have jumped out to an early recruiting lead. The first version will only be a Top10 eventually expanding to a Top25 by signing day.
Each player that is rated in their respective Regional Ranking is worth one point. If that player is also in the NUC Ultimate200 they gain an additional half point. All players in the NUC JUCO Top 30 have a value of a half a point towards their respective signing day schools team ranking. The college with the highest total number of recruiting points will be crowned the 2013 NUC Recruiting Kings.
If two colleges are tied with the same total of recruiting points then the first tie breaker is the school with the most NUC Ultimate200 players. The second tie breaker will be the school with the most regionally ranked players. After that both schools will be considered tied.
The Longhorns find themselves in a familiar position at the top of the early recruiting rankings. They are followed by in-state rival and SEC darlings Texas A&M. Brady Hoke has the Wolverines clicking on all cylinders again this year in the three spot. Not to be outdone the Buckeyes led by recruiting wizard Urban Meyer are right on the heels of their bitter rival. Rounding out the top five are the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
Coming in at the number six and seven spots are two SEC West foes. The Bayou Bengals won't be in the six spot long if they can clean up in-state. It appears to be a banner year in Louisiana and the Tigers look to be in good shape. Current National Champions Alabama sit in the number seven position. But having dominated the recruiting world the last four years look for some Saban magic to propel the Crimson Tide to the top of the heap.
The number eight and nine spots are taken up by two ACC foes from the same state. The Seminoles look to clean up in the Sunshine State and battle for the NUC recruiting Title. Even with heavy sanctions hanging over their heads Al Golden knows how to spot talent. As long as he is at the helm the Hurricanes will be in good shape.
Boston College makes a surprising entry in the number ten spot. The Eagles have been down on their luck of late but the hire of Coach Steve Addazio has sparked renewed interest among recruits. This coach has taken the recruiting world by storm searching the globe for top talent.
Missing from the early NUC Team Recruiting Rankings is the PAC 12. This is not surprising since USC and Utah have the most total commits of any schools in conference with five apiece. Never count out the Trojans or the Winged Warriors from Eugene.
