"The scoring system for grading these classes remains the same, a 0-to-5 scale. We’re assessing scholarship players and walk-ons who earned scholarships by what they’ve achieved in four years, not projecting what they could do in the future.
5 points: All-American, award winner, top-50 NFL Draft pick 4: Multiyear starter, all-conference honors 3: One-year starter or key reserve 2: Career backup 0: Minor or no contribution, left the program
Because class sizes vary, we focus on class average (total points divided by total signees) as the measuring stick. A wins bonus is added to each class based on its four-year record. The attrition rate listed counts all signees who left school due to transfer, grad transfer, dismissal, ineligibility or injury."
