he looks better then 5 star driskel
The star system is a gimmick IMO to sell subscriptions. H.S. Success does not automatically equate to College success.
The star system is a snapshot, a moment in time. It does not reflect a human's capacity to grow, to learn, to accept tuition, other than for the first 18 years or so of life.
It's reference point, not a classification-for-life.
His video was out there a few years back. Watch that instead of lucky charms.
A lot of the rating system is based upon offers and location. Its easier to get recognized in FL, CA, GA, & TX as opposed to some other states. If you can't get offers from your regional colleges, the recruitniks figure you might not have it. Also, to be fair, he could just be a gamer who doesn't do camps well.
I thought he was a 3 star.

Well, part of the reason he looked better is that he was healthy, part of the reason is that opponent had no film on him, and part of the reasons is that some of you are so blinded to what Driskel does well that you think a junior high school quarterback is better.
He was a 2 star recruit with offers from Fordham, Syracuse, and Temple. He was committed to Temple before switching his commitment to Florida.
The truth is probably that he was a "2 star" recruit because he didn't blow up offenses the way Driskel did in high school. Driskel is a very good quarterback but for some reason has had a lot of trouble between the ears lately and that makes it look as if the game is going a little bit too fast for him sometimes. If he had the poise that Murphy showed last night he would probably be the most feared quarterback in college football. Problem is that the first job a a quarterback is to manage the game and just as important to never turn the ball over. Murphy had one turnover and I'm still not sure that wasn't caused by the center and he managed the game effectively. I still think Driskel has the potential and maybe this injury - hoping he gets a redshirt - will give him a little more time to study film and slow the game down in his head.
So Driskel wasn't healthy in every game this year before he took that hit yesterday? I saw throws that Murphy made yesterday that were fantastic, ones Driskel would never make. I do not believe Jeff has it, I wish he did not break his leg to get a new QB in, but something had to change. Maybe this will spark some fight in him to want to compete more, and learn quicker who knows. If so then great more power to him.
He looked good and he played well. I hope he can carry us all the way to the BCSCG game, but the truth is our defense is the key.
Driskel is good when he's on... no need to discredit one player just to give another one props.
Why's the sun yellow... Who cares
he was only offered by temple. watch his post game on gator vision
1) Too many HS players to really get a good assessment of any of them. You can only say that the 5-star players should be successful more often than the 2- or 3-star players but that is about it. Hell, Kerwin was a walk-on. It happens.
2) Also, the stars reflect what someone did in HS and not what they are capable of in college, IMO. If you are an early bloomer, or you are one of the older HS players, then you may have peaked early whereas others peak later. We can only hope that Murph is one of the latter types.
Didn't he play at the same school Jordan Reed did?
I agree completely and think this is the main reason. You get these guys who have a ton of talent but get lost in the system because they're from a small school that doesn't win much, or they're from a big time program with a lot of talent that gets all the attention. Ahmad Black was a three star.
Wasn't Brandon James a two star?
Not that it matters
Manziel was a three star. Patrick Willis (Butkus winner) was a two star.
Driskell was higher ranked then both Manziel and Bridgewater in every recruiting service. That's all you need to know about stars!
