    #35 on Rivals' Team Football Recruiting Rankings

    Rivals has already updated their rankings to reflect CPR's pick-up of Campos. The Cyclones are now ranked 35th -- just 3 behind Nebraska and ahead of top notch programs like Oregon, Stanford and Michigan State. Recruiting success doesn't always translate directly to success on the field, but this is positive news nonetheless.

    I did but we have two guys right now with 0 stars, that pulls down our ranking. When they get their stars (likely 3) and if we can pull in the 4* receiver who seems to be really high on us, we will be in the neighborhood of top 25. May not get there though, but close.

    The way kids develop under this staff, and how they spot under the radar talent, the future looks extremely bright.

    Re: #35 on Rivals' Team Football Recruiting Rankings

    The sick thing is it's still only good enough for 6th in the Big 12. But, as cypride stated, the way CPR develops players, this could be one hell of a class 4-5 years from now.

    Re: #35 on Rivals' Team Football Recruiting Rankings

    Keep in mind a lot of the reason we are that high right now is because some schools just don't have a lot of commits yet. As they get more verbals before signing day the class ranking will likely drop. Don't get me wrong I think this is a great class but we have to keep stuff in perspective for the time being.

    Re: #35 on Rivals' Team Football Recruiting Rankings

    Can someone explain Rivals point system to me? We are way below the avg. stars of teams ranked near us, so I don't understand how we are so high. Half of our recruits are less than 3 stars.

    I don't know the exact system, but I know it factors in total stars in addition to average stars. Since we have 25 recruits, that is huge for our ranking, especially since only one other Big 12 school has more than 20 recruits. Hence the reason Baylor is also listed as the second best recruiting class in the conference.
