Just follow suit and release your Top 28 man

That’s where I respect him. He didn’t go releasing a frivolous list with 28 teams. He narrowed it to 27 already. He should just eliminate one each week. He’d have his choice right before the early signing period.

That's a pretty great idea actually. Someone should do that, make it a count down. They could even turn it into a playoff bracket.

.84 with that offer list doesn’t seem right

Why?  This kid is just another kid 3 star that nobody wants.

OVing here for the Colorado game.  Also planning to take OVs to Penn State and Alabama.  Doesn't need to use an OV to Georgia because of location.  Oregon a likely OV as well.

If I worked at 247 that is what I would say too. If I admitted we looked at how many P5 programs were after them that would take away from the belief we are great at evaluating in our own right. If that kid picks alabama or georgia his rating will go up. If he picks nebraska, oregon or ole miss it will stay the same.

 I have to believe that they don't consider the offers because if 8 of 14 SEC teams offer a kid and he's at the same school as a bunch of other really good kids, that means the coaches see something the recruiting services aren't

I guess you have to ask yourself  who is better at evaluations, P5 coaching staffs or recruiting services? /TongueInCheek

 

I think it's fair to question what a coach sees in a player when they are the only P5 offer to said player or the only "major" P5 offer.  But when a kid has 20+ offers that include a lot of big hitters, I start to wonder where the disconnect is between coaches and services.

I side with the coaches 100% of the time. 

 

Recruiting services evaluators are glorified sports writers. Coaches make millions- who knows what sports writers make- not millions. 

 

Also i will use 97 as an example. I value the coaches saying Nebraska was national champs that a bunch of dingle berry sports writers picking michigan. Sorry but the opinion of experts in the field means way more to me than sports writers. Those guys went to school for journalism- they are not trained in football.

A coaching staff has various motives to offer a prospect as it relates to where that recruit fits on their "Big Board", and since we are not privy to how they fit on that board, it is hard to know how their evaluation lead to the offer. This is obvious but makes it difficult for fans to understand recruiting strategies of a coaching staff.

 

What if coaches gave a grade or rating with each offer? :sarcasm

Both have blinders. 

 

Sports writers see the width, but lack the depth.

Coaches see the depth, but with almost no width.

The coaches poll is often done by someone's secretary. :P

 

It's also worth noting coaches are not scouts. They are two very different jobs with skills that somewhat crossover. See the NFL where many coaches have tried to be GM and failed. Lots of people "know football", including writers and TV personalities, but that doesn't mean they are equipped for every (or perhaps any) job in football.

I will say 1 angle I probably over looked. And I think its fair to say we all over look it- including rating services. I would like to know what criteria the rating services are ranking kids. What offensive system are they ranking them based off? Maybe there is a kid who has 5 star value to frost- but to a pro style attack he is a high 3 star. You have spread, option attacks, pro style etc. Many different styles of offense. Its impossible to rate all the kids as they would relate to every style of offense or defense for that matter.

To add to this discussion, I'm pretty sure coaches have access to more tape of players, and are able to see players up close with personal workouts.

Oh baby ... very excited to see how this one goes!

 

His 247 profile and ranking gives me a chuckle ... you got Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee, Penn State, Michigan St. and others ...

 

He is ranked #99 ... ha ha.  Just too funny.  This kid gets a nice bump into the 4* range some time down the road I would guess.

 

247: #99 S; :star:star:star

If we could pick up another outside pass rusher and a couple corners, I might just OD.

That’s not a mid three star offer list or film.  Kid needs to be a 4 Star and possible top 250.
