If they know so much then why is there such a wide discrepancy between each service? According thy holy 247, Mullen's class was significantly better than Zook's Rival's class. But according to Scout, Zook's class was better than Meyer's Rival's class. Yet Meyer's Scout class was better than Mullen's 247 class. There is no factual ranking here... it's all just opinions put into numbers. I don't see any reason to be so nitpicky over this. Even if we believe in your averaged 'data', then Mullen was a grand total of 1 below Zook and 1.5 below Meyer. Oh, the horror. Within an inch of two of the greatest recruiters of all time, and neither of those guys had to deal with coming off a 4 win season much less nearly a decade of complete ineptitude. Sorry, but Mullen's first class was really, really good.
