They don’t count the transfers and Juco players in the rankings. By adding JUCOs and transfers it brings our rank down because you get points for everyone you recruit from 2 star up. So the pure number of recruits matter. Look st Navy and Army as an example. They have very few 3, 4. 5 star players but they are both ranked much higher than us. What you really have to look at for quality is the “avg of stars” rating. Using this we are closer to the middle of the AAC pack.According to 247 who gives those stars, our class is currently ranked 126 this year. Last year it was 106, '17 was 101, and' 16 was 99. This year's recruiting was significantly worse than the prior three years.
I think we have a stronger freshmen class this year than last but we have a very good transfer and JUCO class.
