I've never heard of nor visited the site, but Alex Kline is a basketball recruiting analyst who founded the recruiting site The Recruit Scoop. It doesn't specify how long he's been doing this, but since he's only 17 and the fact that there is yet to be a wiki page written about either him or his recruiting site, Rivals must have got in on him early.
Thoughts? Well, he's young. And I wish I could have had a job like this at the age of 17. He has a huge twitter following, and he must be good if Rivals decided to actually hire him. I just hope that these kids don't start getting hired by scouting sites just to get that "in" with high schools to obtain competitive advantage over other sites. This may be the next step to taking recruiting WAY too far.
