247 has five Ivy classes ranked higher than the classes for James Madison or Richmond. Does that seem credible? Could Princeton and Yale have better classes than North Dakota State?

You're not looking at the methodology. If you do, you will understand why they currently rank PU higher, and why it doesn't mean too much right now and there's no reason to draw long range conclusions.

They do a simple multiplication of the number of recruits times their number of stars. Obviously a team that currently shows only a few recruits will be ranked lower than a team with more recruits, even if its smaller number of recruits are individually graded higher.

So, PU with 13 "starred" recruits currently outranks North Dakota with 5 starred recruits and JMU with 2 starred recruits. Clearly that will change. Plus, many these FBS teams will be adding transfers and JC graduates.

On the other hand, it cannot be denied that PU is showing well versus some other teams with a comparable number of recruits.
