There have been watch lists and other unofficial organizations of data, but nothing approaching what the final lists of the past have looked like.
Still, via B/R, ESPN and the general buzz, we have some idea of the recruiting classes that sit at or near the level of the top 25...and of those not in the conversation.
I'd like to present what I consider to be the ten best recruiting classes not currently in the conversation for top 25. Maybe they're chock full of rising stars; maybe they've been assembled in the midst of a coaching change; maybe they achieve beyond the level of a team's on-field success; perhaps they're just numbers 26-35.
In any case, here are 10 teams that, with a little more work, deserve a shot at the top 25.
