Does anyone know/understand Rivals' method for determining team recruiting rankings? I'm having a hard time concluding why, based on Rivals' numbers and not my own thoughts, OSU is ranked ahead of Michigan. Michigan has a) more recruits, b) a higher "star" average, c) more 5-stars than us (one to our zero), d) more 4-stars than us (15 to our 14). We end up with more points, though, which puts us ahead of them.
First, I know different sites are more reliable than others blah blah, and stars don't mean anything blah blah, and scUM sucks etc. etc. Just something I noticed, though. I truly think we have a better class right now, but it seemed weird that they had us "beat" in every column except final points.
Here's a link to view:
Thanks for inputs!
