SB Nation put together this map of which schools did the best job of recruiting each state:
The rules, briefly:
- It’s not a scientific exercise. I could’ve just counted up total points on the 247Sports Composite, but that would discount clearly better recruiters who recruit out of state. (For instance, Ohio State wouldn’t get the nod in Ohio, which would be silly.)
- So if Team A got four of the top five players in State X, that’s convincing enough.
- Unless otherwise noted, ratings are via the Composite, which aggregates evaluations from across the industry.
