2015 recruiter power rankings

8. Barry Lunney Jr.

School: Arkansas
ESPN Junior 300 recruits: 2
Top recruit: ESPN Junior 300 No. 75 Ty Storey (Charleston, Ark./Charleston)
What he's done: For Arkansas to compete in the SEC, the Hogs must protect their home turf, and what better person to do that than Lunney? Lunney established a great reputation with high school coaches throughout the state after winning two state championships coaching at Bentonville High. His 2015 efforts have already landed three commitments, including Storey, the No. 3 pocket-passing quarterback, and ESPN 300 defensive end Jamario Bell (Junction City, Ark./Junction City).

9. Bobby Elliott

School: Notre Dame
ESPN Junior 300 recruits: 2
Top recruit: ESPN Junior 300 No. 64 Blake Barnett (Corona, Calif./Santiago)
What he's done: Widely respected by his peers as one of the best recruiters over the last 20 years, Elliott has helped Notre Dame land its quarterback of the future in Barnett and ESPN 300 offensive guard Tristen Hoge (Pocatello, Idaho/Highland). Bennett, the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback, pledged to the Irish around Thanksgiving and has already earned an invitation to the prestigious Elite 11 Quarterback Camp.

10. Marques Tuiasosopo

School: USC
ESPN Junior 300 recruits: 1
Top recruit: ESPN Junior 300 No. 22 Ricky Town (Ventura, Calif./St. Bonaventure)
What he's done: Yes, Tuiasosopo has only one commitment so far for the 2015 cycle, but its significance and quality puts him on the list. Town, the No. 2 pocket passer in the country and No. 22 prospect overall, was a longtime Alabama commitment, but Tuiasosopo worked with the other USC coaches to convince him to come to play for the Trojans instead of the Tide. Tuiasosopo did good things when he was at Washington and UCLA, so expect more of the same with his 2015 effort at USC.
