On Monday, 247Sports will release Player Database 2.0, which will feature multiple enhancements to that particular product. Here's a rundown of what is coming...
-Crystal Ball- Crystal Ball is essentially recruiting predictions from analysts on where top prospects will end up. The first version will feature the ability to see all predictions on a recruit, all predictions from one analyst and more. We have featured analysts from across the 247Sports network and also from other outlets, both regionally and nationally and will be adding more. The next versions of this product will include analyst accuracy rankings and ratings, the ability for users to predict recruits (with rewards for accuracy) and more. We are extremely excited about this.
-Recruiter Rankings- Similar to our team rankings, we will begin to rank recruiters (assistant coaches) according to a formula using 247Composite (recruiting industry-wide) ratings and rankings. These rankings will be able to be sorted by conference and you will also be able to see which coaches are recruiting which players on our enhanced coaching pages. This is the first of its kind in the industry. We've run the numbers from last year and both Shane Beamer and Torrian Gray were ranked highly according to the formula. When coaching changes occur, you will be able to see how the candidates stack up with regards to recruiting.
-Basketball Team Rankings- Another first of its kind in the industry, just as we do in football, we are going to have computerized, real-time updated recruiting team rankings in basketball. As your team gets a commitment, your class ranking will move up or down accordingly. These also will be sortable by conference.
-Skills- Our national recruiting team spends weeks on the road and reviewing film and 247Sports has in a short time set an industry standard for recruiting rankings, led by our lead scouts Gerry Hamilton (football) and Jerry Meyer (hoops). Now, we are giving our users a deeper look into the prospect evaluations with a skills rating. Each position is assigned 10 skills and we grade them 1-10, so you can see, for example, if a player needs to get faster, bigger, etc. While rankings are strictly a projection, skills ratings are much more of a "right now" look.
-Rankings History- A graphical look on where prospects have been ranked/rated throughout the process. At 247Sports, we constantly evaluate and update and this will help you keep up with all of the movement! Also, you can compare 247Sports rankings with 247Composite.

Sounds F'n awesome!

Sweet. Sounds like an awesome feature. Really looking forward to the crystal ball feature Taking recruiting to another level, and could spell doom for some competing sites. As we've seen from some Hoos, winning at recruiting is almost as important as winning on the field.
