GVX Audio: J.C. Shurburtt, national recruiting director for 247Sports

J.C. Shurburtt, director of recruiting for 247Sports, joined Vince Ferrara and Ben Frederickson Friday to talk about football recruiting as we approach National Signing Day on Feb. 5.

Shurburtt said that he sees this week's practices and games as equally important in the ranking process.

"There's been times when I think maybe the biggest mistake we've made in the short history of our company in the rankings standpoint is Jameis Winston did not have very good Under Armour practices and lit it up in the game. We weighed the practices more and didn't have him as a 5-star," Shurburtt said.
