    Recruit Lists: Football

    Just want to ask a few questions and gauge some interest here. Football is a much larger beast to tackle than basketball with so many more players and information out there. However, I am considering the addition of at least the lists portion for Iowa State football. I currently do not plan on providing the daily updates like I do basketball, but would make a page to show all of the recruits that we have offered or perhaps shown strong interest in...

    What would you CF'ers think about that?!?


    Now, to provide the best information out there the current plan would be to of course include the players' name, position(s), height, weight, school and status (offered or interest). But, what ranking source should I include? ESPN, Rivals & Scout? Provide the star ranking and position ranking? Only have so much room to play width as to not make the lists messy so I want to hear what you consider to be the best information to view...

    You might save space by making a composite ranking from various sources, but I know some use numbers rather than stars, don't they?

    Re: Recruit Lists: Football

    Rivals & 247 are the two best ranking services. They have more actual eyes on prospects than Scout and ESPN I would use theirs.

    also just as a side Devin Rolan LB from Oklahoma has been hearing from yall alot

    Re: Recruit Lists: Football

    Sounds good to me! I assume that you would rank them by the most apparent interest/visits?

    Re: Recruit Lists: Football

    Thanks for a few comments thus far, at the moment here is what I'm looking at:

    Name, Pos, Ht, Wt, 40, Status, School, Ranks (ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 24/7)


    Ranking wise I'm still not 100% on what to include, however at this point I'm leaning towards the 'star-ranking' and then a positional rank if available. Let me know if you have any preferences or if there is something else you'd like to see!

    Anything recruiting related probably needs to go past woodie first, just an FYI. He'll make sure it's cleared by CPR and JP.

    Re: Recruit Lists: Football

    I would greatly appreciate this. I love your MBB updates and spreadsheet, and with football being harder to follow recruitment-wise this would be an awesome tool.

    We should get CW to get you a weekly update spot.
