Question about star ratings of 2019 class
by austindomer (2019-02-04 17:22:53)

There were a couple of posts last week about some positive movement in the star ratings of our 2019 recruits. Specifically, Jack Kiser was supposedly upgraded to a 4-star recruit and Kyle Hamilton was given a 5th star, making him our one and only elite prospect in the 2019 class.

Both posts referenced articles on 247sports.com

However, I checked back today and both are still listed as 3 and 4 star recruits, respectively:

Is there a reason for this delay? I ask because it galls me that ND is sitting outside the top ten after a pretty damn good regular season and so I keep checking back to see if the upgrades have moved us up a few slots. I mean, I expect to be behind Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, and OSU. But Michigan? Texas A&M? Oregon? PENN STATE (for Pete's sake)?


You should not be upset about the rating service rankings

That’s not where the problems lie.


Some clarification

247 has two sets of individual rankings: their own individual rankings by their staff and composite rankings which are based on an average of the rankings from 247, Rivals, and ESPN.

Kiser and Hamilton were upgraded in 247's rankings. While this presumably raised their ranking in the composite rankings, it was not enough to give them an extra star in those rankings.

247's team rankings are based only off the composite rankings. That is why ND has no listed 5 stars.


Understood. Thanks. *
