Who owned Texas recruiting in 2014?

Let's look at how the major universities in Texas stacked up on National Signing Day for the 2014 classes.

Scott Halleran

Texas A&M signed a monster 2014 class under head coach Kevin Sumlin, but let's see how the Aggies stacked up against other schools in Texas. One thing that immediately jumps out at you is that Texas A&M signed the fewest recruits but still had the most five- and four-star players. In fact, the Aggies signed more five-star players than the entire Big 12 combined. The data I used to create these tables were collected from the Composite Team Rankings.

State Rank Team Total 5-star 4-star 3-star Avg Points
1 Texas A&M 21 3 11 7 91.36 277.35
2 Texas 23 0 8 15 88.09 240.71
3 Baylor 28 1 3 24 85.08 216.98
4 Texas Tech 27 0 0 26 84.26 190.18
5 TCU 24 0 1 20 83.95 188.06

Now, let's take a look at individual players. I've color-coded the schools so that it's easier to evaluate how the recruiting classes compare across teams. You'll notice a lot of maroon and white clustering near the top of the list and less pleasant colors near the bottom. The table is sorted by Rating Score.
