Since 247 switched their recruiting rankings up a bit. Doesn't affect the quality or caliber of players Tech is hauling in by any means, but it's just something I noticed. It was nice to see Tech up near a top-10 class for once
VT is currently 12th in 247's rankings and 17th in the composite.
we dropped significantly in Rivals as well. we were like 13th and now we're 20
As we get closer to signing day,many of the very top recruits in the nation are committing to top teams. Since VT is done with the 2013 class,that bumps them down in the rankings.
Then that helps explain the difference between 247's and composite rankings. I haven't really checked any rankings other than 247 this cycle. Scout always seems to have us low so maybe ESPN and 247 are balancing out Rivals and Scout putting us at 17th in the composite.
We have a small class this year and that hurts our overall ranking.
I only caught it because I made the same mistake when I checked the rankings a day or two ago. I was trying to figure who other teams got to make us fall that quickly then realized I was looking at the composite.
Well to be fair, we have like 7 kids, give or take, who you could make the case for that they should be a 2 star instead of 3.
Next season, if we DONT have a top 10 class, we can blame the coaches. All the talent in the state, their will be no excuse. Well an excuse could be that players are bribed/paid. Can't do anything bout that.
According to ESPN, we have 11 4*s.
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
All of a sudden I like ESPN's recruiting rankings
And to the ESPN messageboards we all go...
And people wonder why Rivals inflates their rankings based on site subscriptions...
I think that's blown out of proportion a bit but it is a money making business. That said, I did like how when Brian arrived at HokieHaven and actually started covering recruits, our rankings increased with more of our recruits getting exposure. Makes you wonder what some of our past classes would have been ranked if the rankings were how they are today.
yeah, ESPN loves our class
