Recruiting any Indication of Things to Come for Big XII Defectors?


I was checking out Scout.com to see how Nebraska did in recruiting in its first full year out of the Big XII and without the strong Texas pipeline. It doesn't look to good for them in my opinion. Nebraska went from having the 2nd best class in the Big Ten for 2011 (19th nationally thanks in part to Aaron Green from Madison HS) to having the 7th best class in the Big Ten for 2012 and being ranked 50th nationally.

When I started comparing A&M and Mizzou, who had relatively good recruiting classes for 2012, I realized that things don't look to good for them either if you put any stock in recruiting predicting future success. I used Scout.com because I their format the best and it is user friendly.

A&M is 8th in the SEC and MIzzou is 12th. And they had decent classes. For some reason this ranking doesn't look that unlikely for a finish to me.
