Will all you complain this much about Knox when he picks UCLA?

Guys I just saw our Kicker wasn't bumped to the top 247. What's up with that huh?
,,,when I'm wringing my hands over recruiting rankings, I always go back to Scout (clear cut 2013 #1 class) for Scott Kennedy and the Bank wint a few ===== along the way. 247 has too many red necks at the top of the recruiting organization.........

Please no. Scout is absolute garbage.
They were low on all OSU's high end talent last year and high on all the low end talent.
The tend not to rate mid-west skill position players as highly as other services but then again, ESPN is usually worse.
High school star rankings and ranking recruiting classes don't win ball games. I can appreciate the frustration but I trust who the staff offers and who eventually commits regardless of their star ranking.
Players win ball games and championships not rankings.
Let it go...
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Lol scout even out the other 3 southern run sites.....
It doesn't but some recruits look at rankings and such to see if they will be playing with other good recruits.
247 over ranking the SEC recruiting classes just adds to their alore for some guys.
,,,according to the garbage site, the number 1 recruiting class for 2013 is.............tOSU. and NevadaBuck nailed it.
Follow me on Twitter @SteveHelwagen
The only nailing NevadaBuck did was of his boyfriend.
It is an interesting dichotomy ...
People want to use Saban/Alabama offer as gold standard to prove Knox's worth.
But when an Ohio kid (Kief, in this instance) accepts a Saban/Alabama/supposed gold standard offer, that offer was only made to screw with Urban and he "really isn't very good."
Now there is a double standard ... ha ha.
I know many of you are smart enough to not fall into those traps ... but the small percentage who do ...
,,,speaking from personal information?
Question: Why do you put three commas at the beginning of your posts?
That was me on Trout. I had him too high and after seeing him in person adjusted. He won't drop anymore I just felt he was more in the lower range.
Trout is a good solid prospect, but more of a right tackle type.

This is close to the same thing Duane has stated about Trout. He is a project kid. Has the athleticism to be great but is he close to Prince, Jones or the other top OTs, probably not, but his ceiling could be higher.
Hail Hail to MeatChicken the Cesspool of the World!
Just out of curiousity, how does a kid like Elam jump like he did? Same with the OT out of PA Johnson last year, both are darn good looking prosects, but how do they just elevate into rarified air so quickly over others?
Demetrious Knox got the OL MVP in Chicago, and it was noted he handled Andrew Brown and other elite OL. Combine his offer list, not sure how he tumbles out of the top 100.
I look at the OL, DL and skilled athletes on both sides of the ball for Boise State the last 6 or so years, and all the 2/3 stars they get into day one or first round of the NFL draft, while beating Washington, Georgia, Va Tech, Oregon twice, TCU several times, several Pac 12 teams in bowls and those type of teams, and talent development and an elite S and C program carries most of these kids to being good at the next level. Boise probably has more day one and first round NFL picks the last 5 years or so than Notre Dame and probably Michigan, who always end up with top 10 classes on these sites.
