Tough to get kids from Mississippi. Woodson is paying huge dividends for AU.

Though you have to admit, it's a little easier when one of the state schools is in the NCAA frying pan and the other is a giant question mark with a brand new staff lead by someone with no head coaching experience and a total of 1-year coaching in the Power 5.  If I were a talented football recruit, I wouldn't be willing to hang 4 years on either of those programs in their current situations.  Sure, we still get to compete with LSU and bama, but it has been harder.

Some Ole Siss fan seems butt hurt on twitter saying there’s a 1% chance he signs with us and a .5% chance he would even qualify. Seems pretty sure of himself but who isn’t on Twitter?

Ole Miss fans truly consider themselves part of college football’s top tier. Very detached from the reality of their situation.

Jaren's highlight reel looks like that scene from Fast Times At Ridgemont High where the star defensive player thinks his beloved car was trashed by the other team on the highlight reel.

The bong man was not from Mississippi.  He just went to Ole Miss.  The other knuckle head at Ole Miss that tried walking off buildings was from Georgia.

What you have foe 247 Sports is actually the composite team rankings. The Scout link is the 247 only rankings. Scout doesn't do rankings & haven't done them in nearly a year since a bit after 247 bout out Scout.

We aren't in the Top 15 on ESPN because they only update their rankings once a week or 2 weeks. Their last update is on June 14th & doesn't account for 4*s Jaren Handy & Jamond Gordon.

Ahh.. thanks for the lesson there! Sorry about that. What is the composite consist of? I'm still fairly new to the ins and outs of recruiting and things like this, but I'd love to learn!

The average of rating services! The best way to get star ratings, in my opinion. Which counts for little on here compared to others.

1st of all welcome CT. Glad you are interested

Well specifically the overall rank order average. For example, a guy can be rated overall on the 3 sites as #1, #1, & #5. Another guy can be #2, #2, & #2 on the same 3 sites. The 2nd guy would be higher on the composite order because his average order on the 3 sites was better. 2 + 2 + 2 =6. 6/3 = overall average of 2.0. The 1st guy would be 1 + 1 + 5 =7. 7/3 = 2.333

One thing about Gus is nearly all of his recruits qualify.

Thank you! Believe it or not, I've been a member since Dec 2013 and lurked for a long time before then. I had just never posted much.

 

Anyway, I understand your example there. I do have some questions though--Let's use Owen Pappoe for example. On 247, I see he has a rating of .9934 and 5 stars. How is that number calculated? On our 247 team page, I see'Avg' and 'Points'. Our Avg is 90.43, which I have to assume is the average rating for all of our recruits x 100, correct? How is our 190.43 points calculated?

 

Then on Rivals, Pappoe is listed as a 4-star, but I do not see any numbers. Any idea how they differentiate the number of stars for players? On our rivals team page I see an Avg of 3.45, which I assume is the Avg stars of our players. However, Rivals lists us as having 1255 points. How is that calculated? 

 

Thanks again for teaching me! These are questions I have always had but felt kind of dumb asking--plus no one up here in Connecticut seems to know even though I am deep in UConn country and CBB recruiting .

Not sure how they do it but this is how I do it. Rank order of all 3 sites.  Everyone starts at a perfect score of 1.000. Owen is # 8 on ESPN. 20 on 247, & 26 on Rivals. Every spot that is not #1 overall is worth approximately .00013 points. 7 + 19 + 25 = 51.  51 x .00013 = .00663. 1.000 - .00663 = .99337 or rounded up to  .9934.

Pretty much.

No clue. They don't give enough details in their explanation of that.

He's a 4* with a 6.0 Rivals grade. 6.1 is a 5*. 6.0-5.8 is a 4*. They work their way up to 28-32 5*s in each class.
