  1. Interesting no Boise St or SD St who are about to join the Big East nor So Miss who won CUSA, also Fresno St and Nevada are missing. I’d love to see 101-150.

  2. Thanks for supplying this information and breaking it down by conference … very interesting. But now, I wonder what drives recruiting costs. On what is recruiting budget money spent, and why does it vary so much from school to school with NCAA rules and regs controlling the number of visits that can be made to recruits, etc.? Any insights?
