that 19 of the 25 Five Stars went to either an SEC or PAC-10 school. 2 five stars signed with the Big 12 with both of them going to Texas. 2 signed in the ACC with one going to NC State and the other going to play for Florida State. The Big East and Big Ten each got one apiece with Michigan State landing a 5 star DE and West Virginia landing a 5 star LB.
USC got Prater and Henderson because they didn't want to play in the Snowbelt. USC also got another LB from Georgia that originally went to Tennessee but decided to go with Kiffin to USC. The other two five stars they got were local boys that wanted to play close to home.
I'm not sure why Oregon got Seastrunk. He could have played close to him at UT that has just as good if not better tradition than Oregon.
Cal got a 5 star safety from North Carolina. Not sure why he would go to Cal because the weather in North Carolina is just as good as it is in NoCal and UNC or NC State is at about the same level as those schools program wise. They also got a 5 star DE from Colorado who probably would have played at Colorado if this was eight years ago but because of Dan Hawkins he wanted to go somewhere else.
UCLA got a five star from Oregon. Not sure why he went there either because Oregon is probably better than UCLA right now. It is a little sunnier in LA than it is in Oregon but Oregon temperature wise is about the same as it is in Dallas this time of year. They do got a lot of rain though.
