Oregon is the most talented team in the Pac-12, and the seventh-most talented team in college football this season.

That’s according to the 247 Talent Composite, which was released Thursday by 247Sports. The annual ranking of every FBS roster accounts for transfers, dismissals, and other early departures to take into account how talented a roster is from top to bottom. The Composite is based on how their players were rated coming out of high school.

Since the rankings debuted in 2015, every eventual national champion opened the year in the Top 10 of the Team Talent Composite. Every national title winner in the internet recruiting era (since 2002) had at least one 5-star recruit on its roster.

Oregon has five of those guys. USC has three. Washington has two.

So, you’re saying there’s a chance?

The Ducks sit at No. 7, just behind Texas and right ahead of LSU. USC landed just outside the top 10, at No. 11 right behind Notre Dame and just ahead of Florida. Washington and Stanford ranked No. 21 and No. 22, respectively. Only UCLA (28), Utah (33), and Arizona State are the other Pac-12 teams in the top 40.

In terms of year-over-year talent rankings, Arizona made the biggest jump of any Pac-12 team. The Wildcats, after an offseason talent infusion from both the transfer portal and a top-25 recruiting class, jumped 20 spots and into the top 50. Arizona, Stanford, and Oregon were the only teams to move up in the Composite, year over year.

Arizona State made the biggest fall, dropping from 26th a year ago to 40th this year.

At the very top, there are a handful of teams racing away from everyone else.

Last year, Georgia and Alabama were the first teams in Team Talent Composite history to eclipse 1,000 total points in the rankings. Alabama did it again this year, setting a new record with 1,016 total points. Among its 85 scholarship players, Alabama’s roster features 73 former blue-chippers.

Georgia has 67 blue-chippers. Ohio State has 65, Texas A&M 56, and Clemson 51. Those five are the only teams in the country with rosters that feature 10 or more former 5-stars. Each of the five has a total team score of 943 or higher. The next closest team has a total score of 887.45. The gap between No. 5 and No. 6 is bigger than the gap between No. 6 and No. 16. After that, there’s another major drop-off.
