The quality of Miami’s 2023 class is reflected in the average class rating

Recruiting classes should be judged not only on quantity, but also their quality. 

One way to judge the quality of a class is to look at the average class rankings. 

After the commitment of five-star Francis Mauigoa, the Hurricanes own a class average of 91.59.

That average equates to a recruit that ranks just inside the Top 247. 

Here is the top ten recruiting classes when looking at the average class scores. Their current 247Sports Team Recruiting Rankings are in parenthesis. 

Note: The following schools have a minimum of ten commits. 

– Alabama: 94.07 (No. 19)

– Ohio State: 93.76 (No. 2)

– Notre Dame: 93.20 (No. 1)

– Georgia: 92.47 (No. 6)

– USC: 92.07 (No. 12)

– Clemson: 91.93 (No. 4)

– LSU: 91.80 (No. 15)

– Miami: 91.59 (No. 9)

– Texas: 91.46 (No. 3)

– Louisville: 90.89 (No. 17)

Miami has the eighth best average class ranking and they rank No. 9 in the 247Sports Team Recruiting Rankings. 

Their class average puts them right behind Clemson when comparing the ACC programs. 

The Hurricanes claim 12 commitments at this stage with six of those players ranking as four or five star recruits. 

Those six commits—OL Francis Mauigoa, QB Jaden Rashada, TE Riley Williams, WR Nathaniel Joseph, ATH Robert Stafford, and WR Robby Washington—all rank inside the Top 175 in the country. 

Miami’s 2022 class featured 15 commits and had an average class rating of 91.79, which was the best in the ACC. 

Alabama had the best class average in the 2022 cycle at 95.27. That average is essentially a recruit that ranks No. 120 overall in the country. The Crimson Tide’s class ranked No. 2 in the final 247Sports Team Recruiting Rankings for that cycle.

That 2022 class was the best class average Miami has signed in the 247Sports era (dating back to the 2011 cycle). 

UM will look to top that class during the 2023 cycle.
