Kudos to our engineers with the development of the #247Sports Rankings/Ratings history module. Here's a sneak peak -- should be released within the next couple weeks.
-- Start to finish ratings history of a prospect w/ key dates
-- Start to finish rankings history of a prospect w/ key dates
-- Located on each #247Sports Prospect Player Database profile
-- For Football and Basketball Recruiting
-- Shows both graphs for comparison purposes -- #247Sports & #247Composite
-- The engineers recorded all of the "rankings changes" for the 2013 class (ratings changes was not recorded). It will appear in the release. (ex. Great to look at Chris Jones and the comparison between 247Sports and the industry) Both will be tracked in 2014.
-- The ultimate report card

Looks and sounds awesome. Like the additions.

Looks good and a great feature! However, you need to get some UX guys to redo the layout for the player bio's. The pages are getting crowded.
Really excited to see these new rollouts. Thanks guys, great product.
This is one of the features I have always wanted to see before. Thanks for taking great care of your customer base.
Wow, this looks like it will be for the really serious stat junkies.....Great Job
Lucky great idea...I really like this new feature.
One idea I had would be to include a ticker of all recent posts/threads made containing a prospect's name on message boards by staff/subscribers to his prospect profile. Is that feasible at some point?
That is coming with the board feeds after the rewrite. Good call.
this is excellent
Another great feature, thanks Lucky.
That's a great idea. It's nice to have a recruiting website that is moving forward
If you select or hover over the chart points will quick hit info be provided?

This is what makes BOL the best in the business. Always improving the product and daily interaction between the boss and his customers. I was asked on signing day by some Arkansas friends to compare 247 and the others. As I told them, there is no comparison.
Thanks Shannon for not only providing the quality product that you and the staff do, but also constantly improving it.
Looking forward to this new resource. Great job Lucky!
Has there ever been discussion of adding an interactive feature for subscribers where they could drag and drop prospects into a team's class to see prospective Team Ranking point totals? Or at least posting a link where you could download a spreadsheet of the 247 Team Ranking Formula to use on your own? That just seems like a no-brainer to me, and I'm surprised none of the recruiting sites have ever done it.
DST39471 created a spreadsheet which calculates team rankings based on the 247 formula.
It would be neat if 247 released a nice, easy to use spruced up form of this.
So, I got the team rankings formula loaded into excel. Finally got all the kinks worked out (i think).
I preloaded our class, but to add
Correct. It does have a hover over feature.
Lucky, you trying to make up for the fax cam debacle?
Yes. It is called the Scenario Generator. We have completed specs. It was scheduled to be released this past year but we did not finish it -- behind schedule. We will have it next year. It is about 50% built. It is an amazing product. We were using it behind the scenes to project how the classes would finish.
That's awesome. Thanks for the response.
Never satisfied with the product, although its current version is fantastic. This drive and innovation is why 247 will surpass all the others.
That is just one more awesome thing about BOL. Always coming up with new things to be even better.
Damn yall are the best. Never be satisfied, Lucky.

I wish there was a place to look at the old prospect and signees from past classes from years past .. There use to be one for each team
There is a lot of data. Search commit list on the site, click previous years and you will see rankings and 247composite rankings going all the way back to 2004.
