Top 25 Recruiting Classes of 2015

We've compiled our list of the Hot 100 Players (2015's) and based on these 100 standouts look at what universities did the best in pulling in these elite players.

Here's our list of the top 25 programs based on the Hot 100 players who are expected to sign with them. This was done on a point system where the higher ranking players received more points. Each player's point was based on a scale that added up to 100; for example, the No. 1 player received 99 points, No. 2 had 98, No. 3 had 97… down to No. 99 which received 1 (and we gave one point to No. 100 as well).

There are three uncommitted players in the Hot 100 who account for 121 points including the No. 2 rated player Kelly Barnhill. Her 98 points will go to either Florida or Stanford when she commits which will obviously alter the top 10 ratings.

Finally, note that these team rankings does not account for the players who are NOT in the Hot 100 which will impact the overall recruiting classes, which we will detail at another time!
