How often than not is the BEST

HS football player in the State not ranked #1 by our "expert recruiting analysts?

Do these experts of ranking talent also factor in grades, attendance, attitude?

I brought up last year's Deshawn Watson from Barnwell that was ranked low, had 5 star stats and NFL potential. Yet, didn't sniff the top 10 in last year's states rankings. Jordan Burch did.

Does this happen almost every year?

Maybe because the BEST we want comes from another state.
Maybe because we don't need the BEST player at that position.We may already have him.
Maybe because our "expert recruiting analyst"was given some information that #2 was actually better than the BEST.
Maybe because it doesn't matter if he is NFL material.Even the BEST don't make the pros.
Maybe because the BEST player has made it clear he has another school in mind,so don't bother.
(That's not an attitude thing,IMO,but rather a personal choice matter)
Or maybe it's that our expert is not such an expert at all.
Does it really matter?
You are not going to get the BEST player every time,or even the BEST at that position.
What you strive for,year in,and year out,is to get the BEST [overall] class you can.
And I would argue we have maintained a pretty GOOD level at getting the BEST players out there,no matter what STATE they come from.


I trust our coaches to find the BEST
