Default Re: Team Recruiting Rankings

Ratings, schmatings. I've never seen a follow up review of the values given to high school kids after some or all of their college experience. I still say it's mostly arbitrary. Highly ranked kids are good. Very lowly ranked kids probably will never play at an elite level. But there are enough Baker Mayfields out there to prove it to be inaccurate.

On top of individual rankings, the team rankings are even worse. Size of class has a greater impact than individual rankings. So if you simply build up with a lot of midrange talent, somehow that is better than filling only a few needed slots with all elite players. You couldn't engineer anything with that math.
