Recruiting for College Football and The Money

Ranking College Football's Top Recruiting Programs and The Money These Programs Generate

College football's top programs are currently in two wars right now. The first is for National Championship supremacy, and the second is a recruiting battle fo the nation's top high school players. 

It's not a surprise that Alabam is atop the list. The eye-popping numbers are not who is recruited but the money generated. It takes just 20 - 30 college football teams to create over a billion dollars in revenue. Texas sits at the top with a whopping $92,000,000/ year. This number does not account for restaurants near the campus and other off-site monies, so more than likely, these numbers are slightly lower than reality.
