A talented Florida tight end/wide receiver with a lengthy list of scholarship offers grew up an Ohio State fan and talks about checking out OSU.
Gateway to Heaven on Earth
38 schools, he is about to blow up in the star category. Nice
Is he better than his rating? Offers would tend to seem that way. Then he's only the 97th best in florida? I know Florida has talent but that's one state.

This is the te/hback that i want. Kid looks tall and long and he likely would be a great player.
How about his speed? Do you have any numbers?
I can promise you there are not 96 other prospects in Florida with an offer list of 38 with a bulk of Top Tier schools like his offer list. That is a red flag to me that his rankings are out of wack.

Trust in the offer list and not the stars. The schools put in a lot more time, effort and money evaluating these kids than the rating services can hope to do. Plus the rating services have their own built in biases toward kids in their most heavily staffed regions and toward kids that go to their camps or play in their all star game.
The only time there should be such a big difference is if the kid can't qualify for most of the big time schools but has the athletic talent to be rated highly, then it makes sense for a high rating but limited offers.
