Kind of disappointed our success last year hasn't translated to better recruits. Check out Coastal's commits. Are the rankings irrelevant? Regardless, Freeze is arguably the best coach we've had on the mountain.At this intermediate level, Rankings aren’t irrelevant, but the accuracy from a 247 Player Rating of 83 down to no stars is really drastic than from 84 to 100. Lot of kids peak and never get better, some kids grow and get dramatically better. 100 reasons a kid might get overlooked. Pretty sure if this staff offers them they like what they see. Interesting that a 6’6 335 kid gets overlooked because of where he is from and 247 has him 2 inches shorter and 60 lbs lighter. But he officially measured 6’5 and 5/8 2 weeks ago and 335 ( going off memory at a camp. The data gets tough for those sites after first 500 players or so. At the high end - recruiting rankings are pretty accurate and important. But as a fan, would prefer to have the early buzz like Coastal has. 247 gets around to adjusting their composite and a lot of these will be rated by signing day. On another note, see some juicy tall WR’s in transfer portal - would be curious if we are talking to any of them. The TN kid apparently never went to class...

3 things stand out for me with this kid
1) 6'7" TE. Gimme summa that!
2) Averaged almost 30 yards per reception in his last full HS season.
3) Good enough athlete to average 20 ppg on the hardwood and have a D1 basketball scholarship offer from Western Illinois.

They either recruit stars (Bama, LSU, UF, OSU) or are development programs--UW, Iowa, UVa etc. I am most taking leery of JC players en masse. Portal guys less so. But it is hard to develop a strong culture with short-term guys.
