Are any of you watching t.u.'s recruiting class magically rise to the top 5?


Tyler Owen - up 775 points since the beginning - 370 after a sip offer - up 92 points since January 15th
David Gbenda - up 105 points TODAY
Isaiah Hookfin - up 128 points TODAY

What is happening with these players to suddenly get re-evaluated and given more points over the past week or 10 days?

Can someone please tell me how we can get our recruits to magically get better for no reason at all? We need to get to work on that ASAP.

So does Shepherd drop from 4 star to 2 star when he flips to A&M?

They are still the same players with the same talent.

Imaginary numbers from websites doesn't change anything about how they will play on the field.

Hype is hype. Ratings are ratings. Clicks are clicks. Money is money.

Talent is talent. Let's see how things go when LSU plays Texas.

Meaningless except that those of us that live here have to endure idiot sips beating their chests about Herman’s recruiting when in fact he’s gotten his arse handed to him

It's truly amazing the goaltending going on at not only Rivals, but also 247 this year. I'm not usually a conspiracy theory guy, but this is impossible to ignore

It's called the Burton/Ketchum effect.

Class with only 3 OL/DL each and only one OL out of those 6 players isn’t a 3 star. I would go with our class, thanks...

Demented men in Pyongyang are no doubt jealous of the Burton/Ketchum Effect, no?

This only hurts them. They’re going to have all this talent and underachieve. I’m not sure how these homers don’t realize it.

Wiley jumped 562 spots in the last week from the 1400s to 800s.

This is the exact stuff that sunk Mack Brown, let em keep overrating. It’ll hurt them sooner or later.

What the frick

I'll be honest: I don't follow recruiting all that closely as a general rule. Is that type of number frickery typical of most major programs? Does this type of shite go on anywhere else?

Pretty insane.

247 mods are trying to get Bru McCoy added to the class for ratings, even though he signed with USC, and is a transfer.

Wow

I was thinking the same. As a coach, why would you want your players to be overrated? Once you get the rep of doing less with more, that’s the professional kiss of death.

That rep has been there for 20+ years.

The sips want it for recruiting momentum.

247 wants subscribers out of the sips because “Texas is back”

We all know we actually signed the two best players in Texas.

I made a half-ass effort to find another example of this happening at other programs. I haven't found anything yet, but I will do a little more research and report back. So far, it doesn't seem to happen at the other programs in with current top 10 classes.

The replies to liucci and anything else on Twitter are hysterical. They’re really beating their chests at the moment.

Let them gloat. Where did all those top 10 classes get them before? Overrated ends up getting them a bunch of Breckyn Hagars.
