With many more recruits left....
Thought we had two 5 stars too. It only shows us with 1.
2 in the 247 rankings, 1 in the composite.
Love the composite rankings, but I trust 247's opinion on rankings and i wish when I checked team rankings it wasn't composite.
They tend to converge towards the end of the cycle for the most part. You still have a few guys that are 5 stars in one and 4 stars in the other, but their ratings usually get pretty close, and the rating is the only thing that matters in the rankings.
I know it's early, but this has to be scary for the rest of the NCAA. Saban is rolling!
Is there any way to check team rankings by toggling between composite and 247? Or does the only team rankings consist of composite?
Yeah, you can toggle them by using the buttons at the top of the ranking page
Edit: maybe not, you used to be able to.

On the top 247 you can select 247 rankings or composite, but not on team rankings.
It must be a misprint, or just a flat out joke that Espn ranks kief as a 4 star, and #32 player at his position nationally. If this is not a mistake then someone missed the boat on this one fellas IMO.
Unless I read it incorrectly, we are number 2 and slightly behind Notre Dame in the average rating per recruit. As you say, we have a number of high profile recruits left. Looks like another top 3 class building for Coach Saban and probably another number 1.
a top 3 class is guaranteed as long as saban is here...its really more of a discussion of when we will finally not finish number 1
That's the way it should be IMO. 247 rankings shouldn't be watered down with the garbage from Scout. ESPN's rankings are questionable at best. I guess Rivals are decent. The composite ranking was probably to make the people at CBS happy.
Said the same thing last year. I know they think the "most unbiased rankings in the industry" is good marketing, but I disagree strongly that adding garbage to a sample makes it less biased. It is a good feature. However, the 247 rankings should be the primary rankings on this site.
Yeah, I've never really understood the reasoning behind it, unless it is to make CBS happy in the partnership. It would be like me owning a company that makes a top grade gadget and then I decidie to diminish the quality of my gadget by incorporating my competitor's inferior design aspects into my product.
Rivals has him as the 46th best WR in the country.
CBS doesn't care.
Here's what 247 only would look like:

Appreciate the link. I will bookmark it for future refernce.
Meh. Those are ok I guess. But what we really want is a view that combines from both the 247 and the composite and uses only the highest rating for each player. That way I can feel really really good about our team ranking, instead of just really good. We can also be as smug as possible. Get on that......Do It.

Lucky neglected to mention it in this thread (he did in another, also about Cornwell's fifth), but you can see the 247-only rankings by clicking the link under "About 247 Rankings" on the right side.
It is on the right rail of the team ranking under the about section.
Yes. Thank you.
