The Recruiting Stars Shine at NFL Draft | AP Top 25 Podcast | Associated Press

The first night of the NFL draft went really well for the college football recruiting analysts. Most of the players selected in the first round were either four- or five-star recruits. Bud Elliott, recruiting analyst for 247 Sports, joins AP’s Ralph Russo to talk about how the inexact science of evaluating high school football players is improving. Plus, Miami continues to have a good number of players drafted and its recruiting rankings are pretty consistently better than the rest of their ACC Coastal Division rivals. Then why hasn’t the U. been able to turn that talent into consistent success on the field? Also, how will the extra-long recruiting dead period because of the coronavirus outbreak affect teams and players?

Projections: Numbers vs. Humans | AP Top 25 Podcast | Associated Press

It’s never too early to have a Top 25 for next season. Plenty of those have been circulating since the day after LSU beat Clemson to win the national title. ESPN’s Bill Connelly chimed in with his SP+ preseason projections for 2020 in February. Connelly joins the AP’s Ralph Russo to compare and contrast where the human opinions and his numbers diverge.

SP+ is embracing some traditional powers this year like Texas and Nebraska that it was skeptical about last season _ when the humans were hyping up the Longhorns and Cornhuskers. Meanwhile, SP+ sees some regression on the way for several teams _ like both of the state of Iowa’s FBS schools _ that the humans are giving a fair amount of preseason love.

The transfer rules could be changing in a big way in college athletics within the next two years.

Also, how can there be more parity in college football? Plus, did anybody who covers college football see this coming from Patrick Mahomes?
