Did your get guys drafted? That means absolutely everything in the recruiting game – at least it’s a huge help. Which schools get to brag a bit more than others?

One thing to remember if you school didn’t have a ton of players selected. Sometimes that means the team is returning loaded with veterans. However this is a big weekend for the schools at the top.

A school gets 7 points for each first round draft pick, 6 for a second, 5 for a third, 4 for a fourth, 3 for a fifth, 2 for a sixth, and 1 for a seventh round selection.
