    Re: Ubben Recruiting Rankings (Big 12)

    I would bet that Ubben couldn't name two recruits on ours, or any Big 12 team. His ranking is based on adding up the number of stars on different profiles. What he fails to see, as always, is how a coach uses those stars. Mack Brown = F, where Rhoads=A-, Mike Gundy=A, Art Briles=B+, etc.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Wow. ESPN has Campos as the 75th best TACKLE in the nation; Rivals has him as the 17th best LINEMAN in the nation. Huge disparity. I'm going to side with Rivals, as they've been doing this longer.

    I would do the same thing honestly, but everyone seems to completely discount the ESPN ranking, just because it's worse. I have no idea personally, but I'm guessing the truth on Campos is somewhere in the middle.

    Re: Ubben Recruiting Rankings (Big 12)

    How do two companies that do the same thing have that level of disparity? Someone isn't doing their job right. Considering rivals re-evaluated their rankings recently and Campos moved up tells me they actually looked at the kid. ESPN not so much.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    ESPN thinks he's soft.

    Re: Ubben Recruiting Rankings (Big 12)

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I believe ESPN was teamed-up with Scout until pretty recently. I have a hard time putting a lot into ESPN's recruiting rankings at this point, especially with football. I don't believe that they have the same reach as Rivals or Scout. From what I've noticed, Rivals and Scout are pretty much even with the top talent in the country (both have him a 4* and top 21 at OL) as far as ranking goes. Rivals, IMO, does beat out all the others from pretty much every standpoint. Just visit the 2 different sites and you can see the difference.

    Rivals had recruiting way before ESPN did. Whenever I want to check on our classes, I go to Rivals. Then, I check Scout and ESPN to see what the consensus is on each guy. I honestly don't think I'm being a homer on this one (not that you said I was, just clarifying), as I've always put more stock in Rivals. Rivals has Curtis rated lower than ESPN does, as does Scout. ESPN seems to be the odd man out.
