Highly Touted Recruits Who Chose the AAC Over the Power 5

Since 2012, one five star and 36 four star recruits have committed to Group of 5 schools according to 247Sports. 15 Of those recruits have enrolled at American Athletic Conference schools. Keeping with that trend, two players have already committed to AAC teams heading into National Signing Day. Obinna Eze (Memphis) and RJ Potts (Cincinnati) are just the latest four star recruits to spurn Power 5 programs in favor of a “smaller school.”
