Comparing the top 10 recruits in the 2015 class to players in the 2014 group is harder than many think. Just because a quarterback in the 2015 class is a 5-star passer does not mean he compares to a 5-star field general from last year.
Making comparisons is an art to a degree, as it helps people get a more familiar idea of a player they may not know much about. This piece is designed for readers to come away with a better picture of the nation's elite prospects this year.
A 5-star press corner is a similar player to a 5-star defensive back who signed with Florida in February. A 2014 quarterback has an identical skill set to a USC commit, plus a 2015 defensive end's explosiveness will look familiar to a lot of Miami fans.
