I took a quick look at the team recruiting rankings published by Rivals.com and Scout.com.

Oregon: Rivals 8, Scout 10. Penn State: Rivals 36, Scout 33. Some big differences include Alabama: Rivals has them at 1 while Scout has them at 8. Another: Ohio State: Rivals 11 but Scout 4. For you recruiting experts: what accounts for the differnces and is one site considered more reliable or better than the other?
