Endowments are considered by US News College Rankings, but it's not a primary indicator. The first is the academic selectivity of the university / college. Most at the very top of the list only accept 7 or 8% of it's applicants. Average test scores are also waaay up there as an indicator. The reason...
USC doesn't carry the cache it did for football back in their hey day. [when Pete Carroll was coaching there]. Too many other programs in the State despite no Championships from Stanford, UCLA, CAL, Fresno State, San Diego State, etc....

It's the same reason that future leaders will either step away from a decent salary for a number of years in order to take on an additional $$$ couple hundred thousand debt to get their mba at a top business school or an executive mba even later in their careers.

We don't know the stories behind the stories, but I would imagine lots of parents/relatives are steering the recruits far more than simply putting the interests of the recruit first.

If the current Defense player personnel show marked improvement with the help of the new defensive coaching staff, the defensive recruits will start coming in droves. ...
What's the likelihood that Reliford adds muscle/weight to grow quickly into a DT? There's been nothing on that potential progress since he arrived in January. I thought that I recalled him showing up strong at Spring practice....
