Ranking the Teams – 1 Through 124 – Combined Recruiting Rankings 1

Once a month, we will update the recruiting rankings in college football, using Rivals and Scout recruiting services. We take the average number of stars and the number of recruits listed on each service and compile composite rankings. The first set of rankings ranks the teams 1 through 124 (including Massachusetts, South Alabama, Texas-San Antonio, and Texas State). We then will break down the recruiting rankings by conference, in order of conference rank.

Recruiting information is based on information displayed on Rivals and Scout as of January 20, 2012 at 12:00 P.M. EST.
