With the 2007 recruiting class in our rear view mirror, it’s time for the
seventh annual Top Gun Recruiter competition. Kevin Rogers was the winner last
year, but he departed for the Minnesota Vikings in the offseason. Will Jim
Cavanaugh step back up and claim the title, or will a staff newcomer like Curt
Newsome steal it away? Find out inside.

The concept behind Top Gun is simple: Take the player rankings we calculated
in Inside
the Numbers: Ranking the 2007 Recruits
, and assign the scores for
individual players to the coaches who were their primary recruiters. Add them
all up, see which coach scored the most total points, and that’s your Top Gun
recruiter for the year.

First let’s take a look at all the winners since the competition began back
in 2001.
