2021 FOOTBALL RECRUITING RANKINGS
College Football Today's 2021 college football recruiting rankings are much different than in years past and our recent conversion to more fully function-able and efficient rankings tables will make it much easier to input step ratings data. This was a necessary adaptation with over 3,000 recruits on our top football recruit boards that will be playing sometime this year. There are now 874 football recruits on our 2021 Top 700+ and our initial 2021 football team recruiting rankings can be found directly below the overall 2021 top football recruit rankings. When diving into the actual numbers, there are 130 FBS programs that have 85 scholarships available per team, which means there are anywhere from 2,500-2,700 each class. This could change this up and coming class as Covid legislation by the NCAA allowed for an extra year of eligibility to players affected by the pandemic. We could possibly see rosters with over 100 players, which is already the case I have heard from some parents of Freshmen in the Big 12. There are now 127 FCS football programs who can offer up to 63 scholarships, which can spread out accordingly and a total of ten FCS football teams were able to crack our STEPtember 2021 team recruiting rankings. In total, 115 college football teams were added this re-rank and I foresee much movement in the immediate future.

2021 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
I have evaluated thousands of 2021 football recruits and all 874 football recruits on the 2021 Top 700+ have unique skill-sets that will contribute in a multitude of ways at the next level. They also now have the capabilities to score whatever team they commit to valuable points, based off their individual growth and play on the field. Given that we have ranked the top 4-5 hundred in the 2021, 2022, 2023 & 2024 classes years before others, we were able to add a significant amount of 2021 commits who were added this STEPtember re-rank.

2021 FOOTBALL COMMITS
All of the 2021 football commits and future commits have an opportunity to grow at an exponential rate with the outstanding facilities, trainers and coaches at their individual programs. So I do get the mind-set of molding the prototypical body type into a highly functional football player and how each football teams scheme varies in the way it is deployed. That is what makes recruiting rankings very difficult in general, as one recruit might perform at a much higher level if utilized in the right offensive, defensive or special teams system. Being adaptable to change is an important part of succeeding in any intelligent football schematics, as the best in the game will develop new schemes based off each week's opponent. Given the fact that many have trouble projecting years down the road when it comes to overall potential on the gridiron and cancel out any chance of individual improvement. Team recruiting ranking values are determined by where recruits are ranked on the top overall recruit rankings and each STEP ratings cycle (end of season and every August), new adjustments are made to the STEP rating averages needed to score team recruiting ranking points. Currently, recruits with a 8.9378 STEP rating or over earns teams 3 points, a score of 8.8378 - 8.9378 is awarded 2 points, a score of 8.6582 - 8.8378 receives 1 point and any recruits that broke the 8.4900 STEP ratings entry mark receive .5 team recruiting points. If you would like to learn more about how the STEP ratings were developed initially and the algorithm used to rank recruits at College Football Today click HERE! The formula has obviously been modified and geared more toward a higher percentage being awarded using the recruit position recruit algorithms found on each 2021 and 2022 top football recruit rankings position pages. The STEP adjuster is used to break ties on the College Football Today team recruiting rankings, by accumulating the STEP average of the tied teams current commits. Football recruits are given the chance to improve their STEP rating throughout the course of the year by submitting new pertinent scouting & recruiting data via the STEP ratings form! If the recruit who submits STEP ratings form is committed, they could potentially score enough points to help their team move up in the College Football Today team recruiting rankings!
