The list is not fully updated,  Shane Morris is now a 5 star #19 overall with a rating of 98.



Others bumped up to 5 stars:

Ricky Seals-Jones, Robbie Rhodes, Eddie Vanderdoes and OJ Howard.


Also, Jalin Marshall has lost his 5 star status. 


They only re-ranked the 5 stars tonight.  The other re-rankings are set to come out tomorrow.

Obviously different evaluators evaluate differently, but I thought I had read some rave reviews about Marhall being the real deal after The Opening.  I wonder what 247 saw/didn't see that caused such a big drop.

Based on what all the analysts said about Treadwell, I think he might get a slight bump.  Right now he sits at #71 overall and #5 WR.

They just updated the list last week, I think.  It seems odd to bump kids up and down this far based on a camp without pads, a pass rush, a true playbook, etc.  I'm glad Morris got bumped up...but these moves are kind of arbitrary.  Camps are overrated.

the best way to put it.  Shane will not see more competitive talent in one setting than he did in the Opening.  But your point of it being just a camp is the obvious draw back.  No pads.  No 270-280lb DE crashing down on him.  All that being said he has definitely carried his own weight and then some this summer.  Congrats to him.

Yeah, Henson was more well known because he was both a top football prospect and a top baseball prospect.  Accounting for "inflation" in recruiting coverage, I think Henson would have been perhaps the most talked about recruit in the country that year.  I can't even think of a comparable player, really, who has had such upside in two sports.

as someone that played against Henson multiple times in a couple sports...He was a beast on the basketball court too. Pretty fluid & mobile for someone 6'3 225lbs. Could have easily played D1 in hoops somewhere. The local hype around him was insane & he was a cocky son ofa bia too. These were days of newspaper & he was hyped nationally as hitting more homeruns for his career than anybody in history of HS baseball, top football recruit, etc.

Which just shows how arbitrary it all is. 

What I don't get is who they had in front of him....ok, sure I remember Bomar being considered all everything, so that doesn't shock.  But I don't remember anyone considering Morelli a better prospect...including Penn State, who wanted Henne first, and only went to steal Morelli from Pitt after Henne picked Michigan.  I mean, he was highly ranked, but I don't recall most thinking Penn State got the better recruit. Of course, reality and time proved that to be the case anyway.
