    Recuiting by the Stars

    You can argue all you want that the current system of rating recuits by the stars is acurate, but results found in this high profile school shows just the opposite

    Re: Recuiting by the Stars

    Accurate? Not really. But it is closer to being right than most people will admit. There is a reason that the schools that have recruiting classes in the top 10 usually play in BCS games.

    This article on Miami is garbage IMO. They have had a bad 5 year run by their standards and they blame it on using internet rankings! How about they stop recruiting thugs like Williams?

    OK you give one example of one player and you call this story BS. I would think that if they are admitting stupidity you might give them the benefit of the doubt.

    Well they have to have some excuse for not being worth a crap the last 5 years. God knows they aren't going to say that they did a poor job coaching. Have to blame it on the busts that were highly rated.

    I just find it funny that there are schools like Texas, USC, Florida, Oklahoma who recruit top talent as well (who are 4 and 5 stars on rivals) and they don't have a problem winning. Yet Miami does, and they say it is b/c they looked at the internet to much while evaluating

    Re: Recuiting by the Stars

    IMO every program misses on 'top' recruits. Some recruits max their potential in HS and others get too banged up to contribute as well as the staff had hoped.

    Re: Recuiting by the Stars

    But think about this, Miami sits right dead center in a hot bed of recuits and here they are using, what seems to me as one tool to locate talent, to pick their recuits. So yeah I can see what your saying but I also can see this happening.

    Re: Recuiting by the Stars

    I've actually been working on something similar. The word doc is a break down of all the players recruited since 2002 and the amount they played. I'm sure it isn't 100% accurate since I haven't finished it yet, probably never will be 100% accurate.

    Two things that are noticeable, 2004 and even 2005 classes were dudes after two great classes in 2002, 2003. Also, we have had a ton of good-great players that were rated 2 stars by rivals (rival is usually more generous with their stars).

    Re: Recuiting by the Stars

    this will be good when you finish it. Already you can see on average that 2 3 4 5 star recruits equaly getting playing time. Is there any way to see variations on this to include injuries and Ineligibility keeping players from field time.

    Feel free to work on it. Information is sketchy. One thing, as I said it is unfinished, is that almost every player gets playing time at some point.

    Re: Recuiting by the Stars

    I just finished reading an Athlon Sports article that had a one paragraph summary of the top 40 recruits in the nation for 2004. Obviously most were 5 star players who went to major programs. I would expect that almost all of these guys would have great careers. Only 20 had what I would call "great careers" (post season honors and NFL draft picks) 11 had "good college careers (were contributors on major programs) the remaining 9 player little of no college football (variety of reasons including grades, injuries , but mostly did not pan out)

    So it look like to me the experts are only right about half the time.

    While every team is going to have a few busts, it looks to me like the Miami guys were just too lazy to really go through the recruiting process. The stars are all fine, but anyone that would sign a guy based solely on the star rating deserves what they get. The rating services give a clue on who to look at, but coaches have to actually look at the players too.
