    Georgia Tech and UNC I can understand. Trying to convince stud players to live in SEC country but play ACC ball is a bit of a sell.

    Army makes sense though. The kids don't just commit to the school but have to commit to the army as well. Much harder sales pitch than say... Texas/Bama/Notre Dame

    Im personally shocked at how much Tennessee has been spending for what they have been getting in return.

    From looking at the returns UNT has gotten, I'd say their recruiting budget must be somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.98, maybe $2.10.

    Shocker. I work at the Auburn University Airport, and the Auburn jets (yes, plural, Jet(s)) are always out and about. The cost of jet fuel alone..... lordy. "We'll take 75 a side."

    Southlake Carroll's budget must be up to around $1.5 Million by now, huh?

    Not seeing OU is a surprise.... Tennessee literally offers any 4* guy in the nation so obviously they are #1.

    Texas is so low compared to what I thought. I honestly think OU/TX are 2 of the cleanest teams with Bob and Mack at the helm but still get some of the best talent.

    Makes pretty good sense to me why they are low. Think about it. Tech vs Texas in recruiting. Tech is trying to get every player Texas gets and then has to go out and find a whole new group of players once OU/Texas pick their first group of targets apart.

    OU and Texas have more people interested in them and are in a huge recruiting area.

    Maybe so, but they only get a couple of dollars worth of players in return.

    Interesting numbers, I had never given it much thought. I would have guessed the big programs around 1 mill with no reasoning. I guess in a given year on the high end you are trying to get 30 kids at most but look at how many you have to talk to, travel to, provide free camps, transportation for the visits in addition to the assistant coaches cost of travel. I wonder if a school has a private jet/jets how that is calculated. Assuming the pilots are employees and the planes are for the entire school, the only cost to report for football would be fuel so some of these numbers could be significantly higher than what they are reporting.

    Georgia Tech is a senior unit of the University of Georgia system, thus not a private school.Although their student and fanbase act as if they were lol.
