The 247Composite Rating provides a single rating benchmark for recruits

247Sports, which manages the govols247.com site, has launched the 247Composite Rating, which it says is the industry most comprehensive and unbiased prospect ranking index for college recruits.

Doubtful. But you can pay a monthly fee to watch it flounder. Ready, set, go!

Okay, so the max possible score is 1,000 for a kid. But a 1 indicates a No.1 ranking? What would a 900 be? 900 times better than the No.1 player? Since when does 1,000 = 1.000? Is this baseball? I'm confused. I went to UT and we went over this stuff for an entire quarter. Maybe this is a case of the misplaced comma and/or decimal. Better call Perry Mason.

That number will be no more accurate than the numbers it is derived from. And probably will have less meaning to most.

I guess you didn't click through. Govols247 and 247Sports have their lists in the free area, including the new 247Composite list. There's no buying involved.

Sorry, it's 1.000 not 1,000.

So? Coaches evaluate talent. Others are questionable. Brice Brown and dozens of others ring a bell?
No thanks.

Sir

I went through your ranking and I like the layout, I had to search how you arrived at the rankings but when found was fair.

Please since you have indicated would be free I would like to suggest add the link to the normal football link, currently you have it under 247 which most will not even click on because it is a known pay site. By adding the link to the normal football link when people opened it they would also be exposed to 247 and may show interest.

Again I like the layout and all the added features
