Gamecocks Football: Incoming Class Ranked Sixteenth

The South Carolina Gamecocks football freshman class has been given the ranking of sixteenth by Phil Steele.  This is about right given the talent coming for Coach Spurrier.

His rankings are based on:
“They take into account the strength of the Top 5 signees, the Top 10 signees and the average signing grade per player for the overall class. This list is not about the quantity of the freshmen signed but the overall quality of the class. Sometimes a team with a small class of just 15 players may rate higher than one with 30.”

The SEC led the way with 9 teams in his top 25 led by Bama. 

Here is his Top 25 or I’ve listed it below:
