What Happened to TOS' Crystal Ball Forecasts?

For several years, if you visited a team's page on 247, and you clicked on the "Crystal Ball" feature (not to be confused with the "Latest Crystal Ball" feature), you'd see a list of that team's recruiting prospects, along with their crystal ball breakdown (for any recruits who have received a crystal ball forecast, that is). Now, that's changed, and instead of a list of prospects, you get the latest CBs for a long list of prospects who aren't even related to the team you're visiting. It's very similar to the "Latest Crystal Ball" feature now, but slightly different.

The value for me of the previous format was being able to predict the number of bluechips a team was likely to sign, and therefore judging their recruiting progress at any time in the season. Now, that's gone. So, does anyone know why 247 changed this, and what value the new format provides?
