Top 2019 College Recruiting Classes

It has been quite a couple weeks for the 2019 class!

Based on the Hot 100 Players (2019s), the "Next In" (players 101-200), and the "On the Bubble" (players 201-300), we've compiled our list of the top college recruiting classes.

This is done on a point system where the higher ranking players received more points. Each player's point total was based on a scale that added up to 300; for example, the No. 1 player received 300 points, No. 2 had 299, No. 3 had 298, etc. down to No. 300 which received 1 point.

Note that the system favors those who signed more players, but with most programs signing anywhere from 2 to 6, it gives a good idea on who picked up the top players and more of them!

Some notable takeaways from the list: the SEC dominates with seven schools ranking in the Top 10. The three remaining Top 10 schools (Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Florida State) reside in the Big 12 Conference and ACC.

Top-ranked Tennessee will reload with young talent in a few years, bringing in nine 2019 FloSoftball Hot 100 recruits, including Callie Turner (14), Nyomi Jones (19) and Madison Webber (30). 

Kinzie Hansen, the top player in the 2019 class, helps the Oklahoma Sooners (2016 National Champions) land at No. 3 in the Top 10 recruiting classes. Oklahoma may not have the top recruiting class, but with seven of the Top 100 players, the Sooners should continue their dominance down the road.
