Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
In looking at our recruits by position group, it is apparent that some of the wide disparities between the recruiting sites are position group specific.
In other words:
Rivals loves our offensive line haul, 247 does not. Ave position ranking: 18.7 vs. 31.1 (I included Diamond and Garnett)
247 loves our defensive line haul, ESPN does not. Ave position ranking: 15.0 vs 29.8
ESPN loves our secondary haul, Scout does not. Ave position ranking: 23.3 vs 33.5
Everybody really loves our LB haul.
So, rather than choosing to love and hate various recruiting services based on my overall perception of their kindness to this years Michigan recruits, I was wondering if there might be some MGoBloggers with knowledge of the backgrounds of the guys making evaluations.
A little personal history of the guys (i.e. former positions played/coached, at what levels, etc.) and former predictive performance by position group of previous rankings would be hugely helpful to establishing what each recruiting service has as a "specialty."
