Here are this week's new Recruiting Rankings from Southern Cal and Auburn made two big jumps up the rankings.

Southern Cal and Auburn have made big jumps this week in the big recruiting race.  Southern Cal moved up eight spots to secure the #8 spot in the team recruiting rankings.  They landed three verbals with the huge one coming from offensive line prospect Drew Radovich.  The Auburn Tigers moved up ten spots to #9 after getting commitments from one of the nation’s top kickers, Kody Bliss and a sleeper OL named King Dunlap.

Overall, there was no movement in the top five.  Oklahoma checks in once again at #1, with LSU, Texas A&M, Texas and Georgia hanging on to their rankings from two through five.  As of now, it appears all of Texas A&M’s commitments are hanging with the Aggies despite the firing on A&M Head Coach R.C. Slocum.  But that is subject to change when a new head coach is named.  Click on the link below to review the team recruiting rankings. Top 25 Recruiting Classes

Note - We have also added a few wrinkles to each team such as average star rankings, average prospect rank of commitment, the headliner commit thus far and the "big fish on the hook." The later represents the biggest name prospect out there that that team has a good chance of signing. Obviously, with three months until Signing Day, the numbers and names will change. Junior College commitments will be included and so will some soft commitments. The definition of a soft commitment is a prospect publicly committing to a school but openly considering others. If we feel secure that he will honor the commitment, despite taking trips, we will include them with that team's commitment list. This is part of the subjective rankings. There is a key of definitions below the Top 25 table.
