The fallacy of recruiting star ratings


I just did a quick look through our recruits this year, and at first glance it would seem as though we have not had a very good recruiting season since Sanduskygate. After doing a bit of research through Scout.com, I found these couple interesting recruits and their accompanying Scout ratings.

Ricky Stanzi (Iowa) Two stars

Kirk Cousins (Michigan State) Two stars

Russell Wilson (Wisconsin via NC State) Two stars

Whitney Mercilus (Illinois) Two stars

Scott Tolzien (Wisconsin) Two stars

And these: (yeah, I know, who are these guys?)

Brandon Kirsch (Purdue) Four star QB

Cordale Scott (Illinois) Four star WR

I could go on with many more, but you get the point, the ratings are someone's opinion and don't take into account what is in their heart and work ethic.
