My view of the recruiting analysis is that the websites seem to rate the player based on which schools recruit them. Look how many top 15 classes Notre Dame has had and they still blow. Look at how lowly VaTech gets ranked every year but they win a ton of games. do not get me wrong the kids that UA and OSU recruit are studs but rivals and scout.com cannot effectively evaluate all of these players. Also they tend to rate players who have not commited higher to drive traffic to their websites so that folks can see the latest rumors. its entertaining and big money for these websites to look at these rankings and they do have some merit but overall its all guess work.

Alabama and OSU did bring in some really awesome talent and I am really happy with the kids UGA got.
