This one was my favorite. It reminded me of an old friend. . .
"4. On the other side of the coin, there is the chance that that highly ranked recruit chooses your school. Congrats! This is most assuredly a happy time for you as a fan, correct? WRONG. Your first thought should be: "why isn't he rated a 5-star instead of 4?" It becomes so crystal clear at that very moment that the recruiting scouting services are all run by key alumni from your rival school, and they are manipulating the ranking system because they knew six months before the young man even did that he would choose your school."
We arens a few important things for you to know as college football recruiting season heats up.
That whole thing is so unbelievably spot on.
That was a good read - thanks for sharing!
Upvote for thejumper. Good article.
Kinda like a recruit Iowa (to Michigan?) not long ago. Many people pinned academics as a reason for his choice.
