Introducing the 247Composite

On Monday morning, 247Sports introduced a new industry standard for ranking recruits called the 247Composite.

Foster is nation's No. 2 overall prospect.

The 247Composite takes the rankings from the major media recruiting sites and runs them through a complex algorithm using a Gaussian distribution formula to create a comprehensive ranking that helps to eliminate any individual biases in the ranking process.

In addition, it also allows literally thousands of prospects to be ranked, something that sets 247Sports far ahead of any other network covering recruiting. Here is how Auburn’s 2013 recruiting class stacks up nationally in the new 247Composite.

The Tigers check in at No. 8 in the 247Sports team rankings, which now use the 247Composite to rank classes. Auburn trails No. 3 Alabama and No. 4 Florida, and is ahead of No. 9 Georgia and No. 10 LSU.

Individually, Auburn boasts three commitments ranked in the Top 25 of the 247Composite, led by 5-star linebacker Reuben Foster, who is rated the No. 2 player nationally.

Defensive lineman Dee Liner, No. 13 nationally, and defensive end Carl Lawson, No. 24 nationally, are also rated 5-star prospects in the 247Composite.

Below is listed all 17 Auburn commitments and where they rank in the 247Composite with their position rank in parentheses.
