Are you kidding? Comparing ESPN, Rivals and Scout, Scout had 4 of our 5 wide receiver signees (Robinson, Bailey, Hawkins and Thompson) ranked the lowest of all three. Absurd was that they have Bailey (who was extremely impressive during the Under Armor week) ranked as a three star and only the 59th best at his position. Heck, ESPN has Bailey as the 77th best OVERALL PLAYER, and Rivals has him as the #7 WR. Scout has Hawkins as a three star and 79th at his position, while ESPN rates him a four star and 25th at his position. ESPN has Robinson as the #7 WR, Rivals has him #5, while Scout has him #14. Fulwood was the only one the didn't have as lowest, and that was about a tie with Scout rating him #13, Rivals had him #16 and ESPN rated him #14.
