    Strange-
    Jean definitely gets a bump. He’s a .92 kid all day long and maybe higher.

    'flurry of commitments". I like the sound of that.

    I see Jean's state and national rating climbing his Sr year, underrated by the services IMO. Kid can ball, check out his vids.

    My thoughts:

    Auburn needs a new coach badly.
    Drinkwitz' mouth writes checks his coaching can't cash.
    Kiffin will rely on the portal again.
    Stoops needs to coach where he can recruit with the best.
    Following up ahistoric recruiting haul was even hard for Urbs.
    I am ignoring the irrelevants on the list.

    They apparently have not upgraded the rankings of several of our cruits from 3 to 4 stars.

    247 openly admitted they need to continue evaluating him during the season and expect his rating to improve.

    Thanks RD, terrific stuff, guess the Catholics are pouring on the dough.

    Question - Is it true the Vatican has turned loose 500 Priests including the Pope to facilitate Irish recruiting efforts? I understand the pope may be decommiting from the Clergy to concentrate on football.

    The Pope will be traveling far less. Considering retirement.

    Thanks! I missed a few, significant data points (i.e, FSU, Michigan) because I was focusing more on who was ahead of Florida and how the other SEC teams were doing. I will try to edit in the rest of them!

    In terms of quality of recruits (ESPN Top300), teams like FSU, Michigan, North Carolina seems to be doing about the same as Arkansas & Tennessee!

    So even ESPN has a better handle on things than rivals. Impressive.

    I don't think so. ESPN is the least reliable. I'd put Rivals at second behind 247. Not enough data yet for On3 but I'm not very impressed at this point.

    Mea culpa. I was being a bit sarcastic, which is usually a mistake without telegraphing the fact that I'm doing so. Although, TBH, my less than sterling opinion of rivals is a long-standing thing that has only gotten worse in light of the recent DJ commit fiasco. But I do agree, that as bad as rivals is, ESPN is even worse.
