In a perfect world, where there’s no element of perception = reality, I’d certainly agree. But this isn’t, at least to some extent, that world. I’m sure other factors are way more important to a recruit’s final decision than perception, but getting a real look from some of these guys, I suspect a little boost in perception may help.
For my part, I’d much rather read a really solid, lengthy analysis of a guy’s game, but I confess to being emotionally invested in this class’ overall ranking. At least a little.
