I was curious tonight after reading a story about Johnny football and thought of something...
Do star ratings really matter all that much? Other then for class bragging rights.
Johnny Manziel was only a 3 star recruit (#14 QB in nation). And he has done pretty amazing things.
Collin Klein was a 2 star recruit (#108 QB in nation).
Past heisman winners:
2011- Robert Griffin III: 4 Stars (#14 QB)
2010- Cam Newton: 4 Stars (#14 QB)
2009- Mark Ingram: 3 Stars (#58 RB)
2008- Sam Bradford: 4 Stars (#17 QB)
2007- Tim Jesus Tebow: 5 Stars (#3 QB)
2006- Troy Smith: 4 Stars (#15 QB)
I think stars are something that we look too far into sometimes. We downplay some recruits just because of their star rating. What are y'alls opinions?
