We recently outlined the college football teams that have done more with less on the recruiting trail, determining which teams turned underrated recruits into stars.
It's only natural we look at the opposite and analyze which teams did less with more, meaning which programs signed the most ESPN 300 prospects but did not get the full potential out of those recruits.
For this exercise, we looked at 14 teams that signed the most ESPN 300 recruits from the 2015, 2016 and 2017 classes. We did not include players who are still on the roster, players who opted out of this season or players who medically retired when analyzing what has happened in the top-300 recruits' careers.
To look at which programs haven't been able to get the most out of their top prospects, we looked at the number of players selected in the draft, first-team all-conference and consensus All-American selections, as well as the number of recruits who transferred or left the program for whatever reason.
It's one thing to land a ton of ESPN 300 recruits on signing day, but it's another to bring out the most out of those prospects.
Here's a look at which teams did the least with the most.
