    Obviously every P5 coach is probably going to say this. But, rings a bit more hollow when you (and by extension the UM staff) are lousy recruiters.

    Right and that's what i've been preaching. With all these camps and rankings bump and commitments that happens now during the off season, it just gives us more stuff to talk and brag/moan about.

    The data convincingly show that the proportion of 4* and 5* players that become All-Americans is substantially greater than that of players ranked 3* or worse.

    Odds of Becoming an All-American, by Recruiting Ranking
    5–Star: 1 in 4.
    4–Star: 1 in 16.
    3–Star: 1 in 56.
    2–Star: 1 in 127.
    All FBS Signees: 1 in 45.

    The table is from this link:
    Recruiting by the numbers: Why the sites get the rankings right

    Obviously the All American designation is not a perfect metric, but it does strongly suggest that recruiting rankings correlate well with top-end production at the college level.

    That is very interesting stuff.

    But wouldn’t a better metric be players drafted or players that make an NFL roster as opposed to All American statuses?
