How are the star ratings in player profiles on this site decided? Is someone on staff giving evaluations or are those ratings from one of the scouting sites?

If you have enough stars at the end of the year everyone gets a free personal pan pepperoni pizza from pizza hut.

I am watching my dairy intake, so I hope we don't get enough so nobody gets to enjoy it. :dread:

They are generally the composite rating from 247sports.

i sent Pete a PM about this earlier in the weeK, but you think you guys could also list the class ranking for the site you use for our player rankings?

Honestly the only reason i ever open up 247 is to look at the rankings. It would be cool if there could be some kind of crystal system here for the users.

Working on a whole overhaul of the recruiting section as we speak. Have everything saved in a document, transferring it over. Idk how but somehow Rosendo Louis came up under verbal commits. I'll go and fix that.

Different question [MENTION=4648]PeterAriz[/MENTION] : how much do our coaches & recruiting coordinators respect/rely on the evaluations of those services (247, espn, rivals)? Obviously our coaches make their own evaluations based on the film and the type of player that fits our scheme, but i'm sure they're aware of those rankings and i'd be interested to know their perspective on those sites. I've seen plenty of info on some of those sites that make it clear the evaluator didn't actually watch film on the kids they evaluated but I've also agreed on some evaluations.

They take them with a grain of sand.
