For the
uninitiated, TSL created a purely numerical system for rating past recruiting
classes, and over time, it has been applied to VT football recruiting classes from
1990 to the present (it requires that a class go through its redshirt-senior
year before it can be fully evaluated). The rating system is explained in this
article, and there are links that go into more detail. At the end of this
article, a link is provided to an Excel file with the data that was used.

Since the offseason is in full-swing, it’s time to pick up where we left off
last summer with another edition of Rating the Recruiting Class. Last summer we
looked at the 1999 class, and this year we’ll pick up with the 2000 recruits.
