OT - Calling MGoRecruiting Gurus - Evaluation of Talent Evaluators Needed

Submitted by NOLA Blue on January 20th, 2012 at 6:36 PM

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."
