With the spring evaluation process underway, coaches are on the road visiting high schools and working the phones trying to make a good impression with prospects. It's one of the busiest and most important times in the recruiting process. New offers get extended, players get a chance to get their key questions answered and a number of recruits decide to end the process.
With that in mind, the ESPN recruiter power rankings examine which assistant coaches have already done damage on the recruiting trail in the 2015 class. Beyond looking at how many four- or five-star recruits a coach lands, the rankings take into account the needs those recruits will fill at the next level.
Previous rankings: Feb. 6
1. B.J. Anderson
School: Texas A&M
ESPN 300 recruits: 5
Top recruit: No. 15 Daylon Mack
Previous ranking: 1
What he's done: A&M has sprinted out of the gate with nine high-profile commitments, and five of the pledges were recruited by Anderson. What's even more impressive is that all five of the prospects Anderson had a hand in landing are ESPN 300 recruits, including Mack, the five-star defensive tackle. He's also done a good job of helping A&M fill its needs at offensive line with the additions of ESPN 300 prospects Connor Lanfear and Trevor Elbert.
