Where does ND recruiting really stand?

By Matt Fortuna

ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com's RecruitingNation went through data from the past five years to further break down who dominates what, when it comes to going after the nation's top high school prospects.

Some interesting numbers of note:
ESPN The Magazine's LaRue Cook also ranks the top 10 out-of-state recruiters, a list Notre Dame does not crack, because:
You'll notice that teams like the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, who signed 34 of 36 ESPNU 150 recruits from outside Indiana, and the Oregon Ducks, who signed 11 of 12 from out of state, are missing. But those schools didn't have much choice but to look elsewhere: just nine ESPNU 150 recruits resided in Indiana during the time frame and only three in Oregon.
