The next time you think about a football or basketball recruit, think of the other recruits.
And when it comes to recruiting, that includes college basketball players.
According to the 247Sports composite rankings, Alabama ranks fifth, Oklahoma eighth and Texas 11th.
There are two schools in each tier.
The most important difference between the other three schools is that Oklahoma and Alabama are ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in recruiting.
The rankings don’t tell the whole story.
The 247Sports Composite ranks Alabama and Oklahoma No. 1 and No 2, respectively, and the Longhorns and Longhorn State rank No. 4 and No 5.
That’s a huge difference, and that’s a difference in talent that has a lot to do with the recruiting landscape.
To understand how recruiting works, we have to go back to the 1990s when the NCAA had to create a ranking system to keep players from being kicked off teams for infractions.
The process was so cumbersome that the rankings were based on the highest-ranking Division I team.
This allowed the NCAA to have a better idea of which teams would be in the top 10.
But the rankings didn’t always work as planned.
The NCAA also had to determine the number of teams eligible for the rankings, which meant the teams that made the cut were actually getting more of a say in which schools got invited to the rankings.
So, for example, if you were a Division I member of an ACC team and you played in a game that was ranked in the Top 25, that player would be invited to go to the NCAA tournament and get drafted.
In order to get invited to play in the tournament, you’d have to have the most wins.
The committee then had to decide which team was better for the ranking and which was the team that didn’t make the cut.
After that, the teams had to play the other team twice a year to get the most exposure.
But then the NCAA’s process started to break down.
That meant that the best teams would still be the teams with the most potential, but there were also some schools with the fewest potential that got ignored.
So the next time a college football player is on campus, remember that it’s not just a matter of having a great recruit or two.
He may also have to compete with a group of highly touted players that have been recruited by schools from other leagues, but the recruiting process isn’t all about talent.
