As has become an annual occurrence, the SEC led the way in the number of 4- and 5-star commitments. The B1G was second with the ACC and Big 12 taking the third and fourth spots and the Pac-12 ending in last.

FOX Sports provided a breakdown by conference, using the 247Sports composite rankings. Here’s a look at the final tallies for each league when it comes to 4- and 5-star prospects:

  • SEC: 5-stars – 17; 4-stars – 117
  • B1G: 5-stars – 6; 4-stars – 71
  • ACC: 5-stars – 4; 4-stars – 48
  • Big 12: 5-stars – 2; 4-stars – 50
  • Pac-12: 5-stars – 1; 4-stars – 35

As you can tell, the SEC completely dominated the other conferences in both areas. The B1G also had a pretty sizable advantage on the other three conferences.
