It seems like this year more than ever, there is a big disconnect between recruiting services. For example ESPN has us with 8x 4 stars but scout only has us with two. Maybe this is because with the technology we have today, recruits can display their talents via Internet very easily and it is becoming more and more difficult to give out those coveted 4 and 5 star rankings? Maybe we do put too much emphasis on recruiting rankings because obviously the various experts have drastically different opinions. Maybe we should base each individual recruit on an average rating he got from all services?
Hopefully ESPN is correct with their rankings of this year's Cal class and Scout is wrong.
