John Pennington has a series of posts up at his site crunching this year’s recruiting class numbers. Some of the results are startling. First off, to answer the question in the header, you tell me:
Here’s how the total numbers for the league’s 14 members have changed overall from 2010 to 2011 to 2012:
2010 total signees: 359 or 25.6 per school
2011 total signees: 342 or 24.4 per school
2012 total signees: 305 or 21.8 per school
That’s almost three less per school in one year. This year, only one school signed as many as 28 kids. In 2011, three schools signed more than that. Now year to year, that may not mean too much, but it will be interesting to see if the numbers stay at this year’s level.
