2015 recruiter power rankings

Signing day for the Class of 2015 is 362 days away, but a number of schools started reeling in commitments before the ink was dry on letters of intent for the 2014 class. The ESPN recruiter power rankings examine which assistant coaches are already doing the best 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.

1. B.J. Anderson

School: Texas A&M
ESPN Junior 300 recruits (recruited): 4
Top recruit: ESPN Junior 300 No. 14 Daylon Mack (Gladewater, Texas/Gladewater)
What he's done: Texas A&M has seven early ESPN Junior 300 commitments and four have Anderson's fingerprints on them. Anderson was the primary recruiter for Mack, who ranks as the second-highest-ranked recruit in the Lone Star State and was one of the most-coveted defensive tackle prospects in recent history. Larry Pryor Jr. (Sulphur Springs, Texas/Sulphur Springs) had his pick of schools before committing to Anderson and the Aggies. Anderson isn't done yet, either, as he's one of A&M's top recruiters in the always-loaded East Texas region.

2. Tim Brewster

School: Florida State
ESPN Junior 300 recruits: 2
Top recruit: ESPN Junior 300 No. 60 Tyrek Cole (Miramar, Fla./Mirimar)
What he's done: The Seminoles are out of the gate stronger than any other team in the country for 2015 with five of their seven early commits ranked as ESPN 300 prospects. As FSU's recruiting coordinator, Brewster has played a big role in the early success. Recruiting in South Florida, Brewster has already landed commitments from Cole and ESPN 300 safety recruit Calvin Brewton (Miami/Central). Brewster's influence will be felt a lot in 2015, especially with the Noles coming off a national championship.

3. Corey Raymond

School: LSU
ESPN Junior 300 recruits: 3
Top recruit: ESPN Junior 300 No. 3 Kevin Toliver II (Jacksonville, Fla./Trinity Christian)
What he's done: Toliver has been widely recognized as one of the best prospects in the Sunshine State for the past two years, and landing him in November 2012 was no easy task. But that's exactly what Raymond was able to do when he secured the commitment from the No. 3 player. Locally, Raymond also recruited ESPN 300 safety Kevin Henry (Baton Rouge, La./Central) and ESPN 300 cornerback Xavier Lewis (Reserve, La./East St. John).
