I don't get how people have Michigan rated ahead of us now that they have had the defections they've had.

Large part has to do that they have one more player in their class. Say we hypothetically get a guy like Etienne or Weston to commit and reclass, a rough estimate would move us to #5 nationally and #1 in the big ten. I estimated this by adding a player with as close to the same composite rating as either player that I could find into our class using their "Class Calculator".

I prefer the per player ranking, which I note we are higher on at 96.05 to Michigan's 94.80, especially when the difference is one middling 3* player, as opposed to one team having 4 guys and the other having 1 or 2. In this case the difference is Howard's #350 ranked kid, who was a walk-on before others defected.

So, no, I would definitely rate our class higher than Michigan despite the fact that they go an extra kid rated #350.

Volume is less value than superior individuals unless you are replacing the whole team. MSU has a better class than Michigan per the ratings.

Odd... No 5-stars in the B1G

5 Stars by conference:

ACC (7)
Duke - 3, UNC - 3, Florida State - 1

SEC (7)
Kentucky - 3, Tennessee - 2, LSU - 1, Auburn - 1

Big 12 (3)
Oklahoma State - 1, Kansas - 1, Texas - 1

Pac 12 (3)
Stanford - 1, Arizona State - 1, USC - 1

Other (1)
Gonzaga - 1

G-League / Pro - 3

One more is uncommitted (Makur Maker), but the crystal ball predicts he's going pro as well.
