I was thinking how great this class could be so I starting wondering if there was such a statistic for any recruiting service. If there is, maybe this could be another great selling point to recruits.
I don't think there is a statistic like that but I'm sure we can come up with something in doing a little research between all of us recruiting fanatics:)
My guess is Southern Cal as I recall some years ago, maybe 5 to 8, they had a slew of five stars.
Id definitely throw the 08 Florida class in there. It might have been the 09 one but it was filled with 5 stars and had probably the best dline class ever assembled
Florida had well over five 5*'s a few years ago... Bama has had some seriously stacked classes in the past few years too
Proud to support everything Louisiana
Off the top of my head, wasn't it the 03 USC class???
Here's a good start. Check out this link:
Florida 2010 was tabbed the greatest class ever by some after signing day, didn't pan out quite like expected though.
This brings us to the point of truth. What class was the most productive?
A Jacob Hester here, a Morris Claiborne there. And you have the "unknown factor".

USC had five 5* and fifteen top 100 players in 2006. They also had six 5* in 2007. Maybe most impressively, they had five 5* and ten top 100 players last year in a class of just twelve.
This is an excellent look at the most productive classes. Not claiming they are necessarily in the right order, but the right classes are all there.
Somewhere in the middle is a link to a list of the most talented rosters based on class rankings.

Good read, Tammany Tom!
Interesting that LSU had 2 of the top 10 classes plus 1 honorable mention.

Very nice find Tom.....I assume the 2001 class wasn't considered due to research and database constraints but that 2001 LSU class would have to be up there high.

A lot of those guys, especially in both lines, really carried the 2003 to the national title. Thanks for pulling them up, Sonny.
Yea the 2001 class was our best class but I think 2014 will change that. Texas 2002 would be my vote for best all time when they signed.
