So I've seen some really cool analysis of recruitment ratings, but I have a question I'd really like to find out for myself.
In terms of draft status, is it better for a highly ranked recruit to go to a top school (where they could get buried in the depth chart, but will have more exposure/possibly better coaches) or to go to a lower tier school where they will almost definitely star. I have seen posts showing correlations between recruiting ratings and draft position, and between top schools and draft position - but not one that looks at the interaction between the two.
I can do the math myself to figure this out, but my question is - where do people get their data? Is there a public/paid API or downloadable database provided by the recruiting sites, or do people scrape their web pages/enter everything manually?
