Based on this article ND ranks 10th with players in NFL. I was not surprised by the programs. Maybe by Miami and Penn St being ahead of us but they are only slightly. I guess my one surprise was Florida being so high. What do you guys think?

Good find - pretty interesting. It's amazing how many players Alabama and OSU have compared to other teams. ND being tied with Clemson is pretty surprising, although I would imagine Clemson will jump ahead in the coming years. I did not expect to see Michigan at #5 - that was the most surprising team to me.

 

It'd be interesting to see the percentage of players that were 5-star, 4-star, and 3-star players for each school. I'd imagine ND would have a pretty high number of 3-stars compared to other teams in the Top 10, which goes to development, but less 5-stars and 4-stars, which goes to some recruiting issues (i.e., ND not signing enough elite talent).

Since the title of the opening thread specifically mentioned Kelly's recruiting, the following players need to be removed from discussion since they were Weis recruits:

 

Jansen, JJ

Martin, Zack

Eifert, Tyler

Riddick, Theo

Young, Sam

Rudolph, Kyle

Smith, Harrison

Tate, Golden

 

Over a quarter (28% - 8 of 29) of ND players in NFL were not recruited by Kelly even though he has had the last 8 recruiting classes (2010 to 2017 ) of players eligible for the NFL. So Kelly has 21/8 or 2.6 players in NFL per recruiting class while Weis still has 1.6 players in the NFL per his five recruiting classes even though his last recruiting class was the 2009 class.

That's true, but for comparison's sake, you'd also have to only count the other team's players since 2009 as well .
