The 247 Sports Network came out with a new innovation early Monday. They are calling it 247Composite.
The 247 network will continue to rank high school prospects. However, in a side-by-side comparison it will also supply the most updated composite ranking of each player based on how the major national recruiting sites rank that player.
Each player is given a statistical ranking. A 1.0 ranking would indicate that player is ranked as the nation’s No. 1 prospect by all services in the survey. The closest to 1.0 a player is ranked, the higher that player is considered.
The 247 Network is then taking all of the composite rankings and using those as the basis for its updated recruiting class team rankings. The hope is that the 247Composite Rating will be the industry's most comprehensive and unbiased prospect ranking.
As a result of this change, Ohio State now has the nation’s No. 5-ranked recruiting class. USC, which has been on a real roll of late, checks in at No. 1 with Michigan second, Alabama third and Florida fourth. The next highest Big Ten team is Penn State at No. 23.
