Missouri football outperforms recruiting

Texas A&M... not so much.

Via BOTC:

Rivals tracked the winning percentages for the 29 teams that finished in the top 50 of the site’s recruiting rankings every year since 2002, then compared the gap between recruiting stars and victories.

The conclusions weren’t exactly earth-shattering: Perennial winners on the field tend to be perennial winners on the recruiting trail, and vice versa. Still, it was interesting to see which teams are vastly outperforming their recruiting rankings and which teams are having trouble turning talent into success.

The big winner was Virginia Tech, which produced the sixth-best winning percentage with an average recruiting ranking of No. 28. Next came Missouri , which ranked No. 14 in winning percentage and No. 27 in recruiting.

...

The biggest underperformer was Texas A&M, which won 51 percent of its games with recruiting classes routinely ranked in the top 25.
