The reason why highest average recruit matters is that each school only gets 85 Scholarships so if you recruit lesser recruits then you are using-up Scholarships on more likely marginal recruits. This is even more profound as you move down the list of HIGHEST AVERAGE RECRUIT NATIONALLY.
The higher the average recruit is the more likely their success.
If you don’t follow recruiting you most certainly should.

*Top 100 Overall players in the nation regardless of position 8 for Kirby !
Kirby has 2 more Commitments 2017 at 18 than On-Scholarship Seniors of 16. And I think about 6 Juniors and Redshirt Sophomores will free-up Scholarships too by declaring.
This leaves Kirby with 18 committed for 2017 toward 16 On-Scholarship Seniors plus maybe 6 who Declare. Of course if you have been following this blog you know these numbers since no one else has bothered to put-in the work to list those on Scholarship and not.
This means that Kirby can sign 4 more if maybe 6 Juniors and Redshirt Sophomores who Can Declare Do Declare. So 18 commits and 4 more commitments maybe coming for Kirby for a total of maybe 22. Since they have to declare we will know that number exactly after they pass the date to undeclare expires.
Kirby will have to get these guys on the Field in Spring Practice if he wants them to START and in the Fall he will need to practice them with the # 1 unit if he wants them to START.
This is the Greatest Recruiting Class EVER for The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs.
