    The problem with the star rankings are they tend to be regionally bias. Kids coming from historically rich highschool football programs often receive more attention from scouts and media outlets which means top talent usually is evaluated and rated more often than say the kids from a south Dakota region or Idaho or Minnesota area.

    There is probably players that are ranked 3 stars from these remote areas that may be better than some 4 stars or even maybe a 5 star that may be on a booker to Washington or a Norcross high school team that get national attention, but hasnt been able to display their skills because of either lack of exposure or lack of athletic program at their school.

    75% of a star rating is just how physically mature a player is entering college. That's why, no matter how much you want to fully utilize a player from the get-go, especially with record numbers leaving after 3 years, the redshirt should be the preferred option for most players. With the right mentality and the luck to stay healthy, a year on the sidelines catching up to game speed and a year in the film room learning scheme will turn a 3-star with potential into a "How did so many people overlook this guy!" contributor in his R-Fr or R-So year.
