For those who love recruiting (i.e. beermancats) and for those looking for an easier way to begin to understand the complexities of recruiting and player evaluations, 247Sports should be your new home.
Here's a great line from a Michigan recruiting blogger (mgoblog) yesterday:
*I tend to stay out of conversations about which recruiting service one should subscribe to, as it largely depends on personal preference—for instance, GBW has Sam Webb but also Scout's astonishingly terrible interface. If you're looking for one place that integrates every services' rankings and has a ton of great free resources, however, 247 is way ahead of the field in that regard. The new database has more than enough material for a recruiting junkie to lose a day or two just poking around.”
Here's a little yang regarding recruiting I caught the last vouple of days:
Finally had a chance to check it out. Impressive. I'm liking it!
Time to nut up or shut up
Great job guys. Love the skill meter idea. Gives a good idea of what type of player they are instead of just how good they should be.
So the composite score is an average of all the different sites rankings?
Yeah, the composite is "an industry average" based upon rankings of reputable scouting services.
