Sooners take over No. 1

The Oklahoma Sooners have knocked LSU out of the number one spot in TheInsiders.com Team Recruiting Rankings. Here is this week's version.

The Oklahoma Sooners have now taken over the number one spot in TheInsiders.com Team Recruiting Rankings.  TheInsiders.com revised their prospect recruiting rankings (revisions in the middle of each month) this week and it has had an affect on the overall team rankings.  There are some teams that moved up a spot or two and others that slid a spot or two. 

One the commitment front, Southern Cal had a nice week, getting All-American defensive end Lawrence Jackson and defensive tackle Matt Spanos ( Thomas Williams has not been tabulated into the team rankings yet).  They are both two super prospects from the West Coast.  Those two commitments bumped up the Trojans four spots to number 16. Florida and Illinois both appear in the Top 25 for the first time this season.

Good luck to your favorite team in the recruiting wars!

TheInsiders.com 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.
