I don’t bash internal rankings at all, I simply bash the 247 composite as opposed to the 247 internal rankings. All rankings are subjective, and none 100% accurate, so heavily criticizing any internal ranking is pointless. But for an internal site to proclaim a ‘composite’ ranking based on only 4 services is foolish at best.
In terms of my own evaluations, they are VERY valued (by pretty much everyone but you), which is why college coaches compensate me for such things.
I did not bring up Jamal Cain, but since you did. How’s this:
ESPN - NR
247 - #163
Scout - #138
Future 150 - #93
Rivals - #74
Hoopseen - #65
And since my evaluations are not valued at all, Let’s take a look at my history, much of which you have disagreed with in terms of my evaluations. Players that I first brought to the board
Zak Irvin (2013) - said he was WAY overrated as a 5star by Rivals and Scout was correct in having him 60ish: EVERYONE in the world other than you agrees with this
DJ Wilson (2014) - ahhh…who can forget the origin of some folks hating me lol. Said he was WAY overrated at #67 by Rivals; and that ESPN was the most accurate of the services who had him as a generic 3 star at the time…safe to say I was probably right on that one
Damien Jefferson (2016) - was unranked at the time I brought him up and said he was a top 100-150 type; finished his senior year in a few top 150 lists
Devon Daniels (2016) - was unranked at the time I brought him up and said he was a top 100-150 type; finished his senior year in a few top 150 lists
Isaiah Livers (2017 - how ironic) - was unranked by all services other than Rivals when I brought him up, said he was a 100-125 type and that is almost spot on by most services other than ESPN
Jamal Cain (2017) - was unranked by every service at the time I brought him, said he was definitely a top 100 type; now sits at a 65-160 on every site save ESPN
Darius Bazley (2018) - was unranked by every service at the time I brought him up to the board, said he was borderline elite; now top 80 on every site, with some sites top 40
Trevion Williams (2018) was unranked by every service at the time I brought him up to the board; said he was top 100 type talent; now top 100 on most sites
My track record looks pretty credible to me. How’s your resume looking these days?
