PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
rankings finally updated. OSU up to 4th.
That's not the composite and just strictly 247 rankings though right? I believe we are 8th in the 247 composite rankings.
You are correct but they dropped to 10th in the composite.

Yes but ESPNs rankings are really dragging down the composite. I'm hoping when they do their next update they will give a lil more love for the OSU kids that dominated in the Opening and boost that ranking up.
ESPN giving OSU recruits love......
Luginbill stated during a Q&A that McLaurin, Berger, and Campbell are due bumps in the ratings based on their performances at The Opening.
Can someone explain the different to between 24/7 and 24/7 composite rankings?
Insert witty remark
Composite is the average of the other ranking services included.
Here is a breakdown. While we assume what 'other' national rankings they use in Composite, they don't exactly tell us.
The 247Composite Rating is a proprietary algorithm that compiles prospect "rankings" and "ratings" listed in the public domain by the major media recruiting services. It converts average industry ranks and ratings into a linear composite index capping at 1.0000, which indicates a consensus No. 1 prospect across all services.
The 247Composite Rating is the industry's most comprehensive and unbiased prospect ranking and is also used to generate 247Sports Team Recruiting Rankings.
And here is their standard ranking system:
247Sports Rating Explanation
Each recruit we evaluate is assigned a numerical rating as well as a star rating. Ratings are determined by our recruiting analysts after countless hours of personal observations, film evaluation, and input from our network of scouts.
Players are first grouped qualitatively with a star rating, then given a numerical rating based on their future potential, and finally ranked according to these numerical ratings.
110 - 101 = Franchise Player. One of the best players to come along in years, if not decades. Odds of having a player in this category every year is slim. This prospect has "can’t miss" talent.
100 - 98 = Five-star prospect. One of the top 30 players in the nation. This player has excellent pro-potential and should emerge as one of the best in the country before the end of his career.
97 - 90 = Four-star prospect. One of the top 300 players in the nation. This prospect will be an impact-player for his college team. He is an All-American candidate who displays pro-potential.
89 - 80 = Three-star prospect. One of the top 10% players in the nation. This player will develop into a reliable starter for his college team and is among the best players in his region of the country.
79 - below = Two-star prospect. This player makes up the bulk of Division I rosters. He may have little pro-potential, but is likely to become a role player for his respective school.
Awesome. This is very informative. Thanks Kbonay. +1 x2
This linebacker haul is so nasty. 1st and 7th OLBs and probably the top rated ILB in McMillan.
Looks like Nuernberger finally has a rating. 4th in the country per 247 and 6th per composite.
They are actually down to 4th in 247
I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me
Before the update they were 8th. UM was ahead at 7th.
Kentucky sitting comfortably at 13th
Glad to see Sam Hubbard getting some love.
I'm very concerned about this class being such a drop off from last year...

Last years class was more skill, this years class was more need-based. Somewhat different kind of classes, but both in my opinion are Top 5 easily!
When did Dante get his 5th star?

OSU has all 4/5 stars except for 3. Dylan Thompson is the highest rated 3 star (89). Collier is is closing the gap (88). The other is our kicker, who is a 2 star but he should rise throughout his senior season
The kicker will not rise. He's consistent with how they rate special teams players.
It's feasible he gets a third star. But no higher than that.
Extremely elite kickers (1 or 2 nationally) often attain a three star. So it's not really feasible that he'd get the bump unless he has an insane senior year.
not sure if Collier will get his 4th star, but plenty of time to go
Yes because unless Collier gets that 4th star he's destined for failure.
