Earlier this week, TOM released its recruiting rankings and 25 DI schools were mentioned and lauded. As we stated in the initial article, recruiting is an inexact science and can be evaluated from many different angles. Also, just because a team does not make the top-25, it doesn’t mean that they didn’t haul in a recruiting class that will be very productive. With that in mind, we’ve scanned the remaining teams that missed the top-25, yet had impressive classes that deserved some mention. Below you’ll find eight programs that signed a group that will undoubtedly elevate their teams to new heights.
