Various sites do this. Here is SI's version, which is pretty long. We should have recruited Ye'Majesty Sanders and Dresser Winn! Luigi Vilain was overlooked.
I'm about done with my SuperGuide post-NSD chaos updates after 6 hours of editing and inputting data on our 29 (+1 this weekend) new friends.
I shared with the board two years ago our Top-20 rated recruits in the modern rankings era since 2002, so I figure I would post an updated one since things have changed quite a bit since.
Back in that thread, Peppers was our highest rated guy ever.

- DPJ is our highest rated WR ever
- DPJ had an elite offer list and could've went anywhere he wanted, unlike other skill position players on this list.
This is obviously a reaction to the pieces of shit at Baylor.
But here is a question - can/does the NCAA permaban coaches and athletic personnel that knowingly put kids in harms way to advance their own agenda? To me, there are 17 year olds on college campuses. This is a child safety issue, at the very least.
What Briles did was enough for there to be some sort of decision that he will never work for an NCAA school again. Paterno would have fallen under the same category, had it not been for him dying like a coward before he faced the full force of the wrath that he deserved. Pitino... hookers... meh. Maybe? The NCAA could clean up a lot of crap by letting coaches know there are repercussions for looking the other way.
I've never heard of this being levied against a coach, but I don't follow this kind of stuff religiously. Is there something in place the NCAA can enact? If not, why is there nothing like this on the books yet? This guy has no business anywhere near a college campus. Same with anyone else who very obviously knew.
I guess the bigger question, if this stuff can be substantiated, aren't these guys headed to prison?
Its depressing that this is no longer surprising. The hole keeps getting deeper for Baylor.
