There’s underachieving and then there’s underachieving.

This is a helluva stat:

USC (4.28), Georgia (4.19) and Clemson (4.06) all averaged more than four-stars per commitment in their 2018 recruiting class but, more importantly, this year was the first time three schools averaged more than four-stars per commitment. The most interesting part of this statistic is that teams have averaged more than four-stars per commitment only seven times prior to the 2018 recruiting class.

USC, which holds the record for highest average star rating per commitment at 4.42, has had the highest average star rating per commitment more than any other school (five times- 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2018).

My Gawd — those of you bitching about Mark Richt never getting the most out of his recruiting classes, Southern Cal makes him look like Nick Saban.

    Eh, they have had to deal with numerous crappy coaching changes and several years of probation during that span. Also, USC is one of the few schools that pretty much recruits itself.

    Although USC used those classes to win 5 conference championships, which we would have loved to have had from Richt.
