THIS JUST IN: Top 25 Recruiting Classes (2016s)

We've updated our list of the 2016 Hot 100 players and revealed our top 10 players!

SEE OUR ENTIRE LIST OF THE 2016 HOT 100 PLAYERS!

Based on the Hot 100 standouts we can look at which universities did the best in pulling in 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 100 points, No. 2 had 99, No. 3 had 98… down to No. 100 which received 1.

As this senior list was compiled to rate classes prior to the November "Early Signing Period," we expect to have one final 2016 Hot 100 before players step on college campuses next fall!
