their evaluations based off of offers, but they have to rely on the recruits or high schools to list the offers. I had a conversation about this with a former recruiting guru. Kids naturally want to boast their prestige and claims offers that aren't there. Conversely, there are some kids who are low-key or ignorant and don't list all their offers. Some kids mistake contact and mail as commitable offers.
In addition, some kids may not get an offer based of off geography and perception of interest. If Boise State didn't offer Albert Huggins, it isn't because they wouldn't be interested but simply a realization that it would not be worth the postage they'd waste.
