The '08 game had 15 ND commits. Since then, I've ignored that game.

You're talking about one year though. The UA game is almost exclusively players from the Southeast every year.....

The fact is ESPN overrates recruits from the Southeast in order to stuff their All American game with "blue chip" athletes, and Rivals tends to ignore the Midwest all together. If I had to pick a service it would be 247, with ESPN and Rivals being under Scout. So no, ESPN's recruiting service isn't legitimate, atleast not when compared to 247 or Scout....

That's because they choose the best players, there isn't an even distribution of talent across the country. It makes sense that the midwest would be least followed because there is generally less talent in those areas.

No, ESPN doesn't choose the best players....that statement is beyond laughable. If they chose the best players, then guys like DeAnthony Thomas, Robert Woods, DGB, Shaq etc would be playing in the UA game. The AAA game has far better talent (and it's not really that close even), because they don't make their selections based on what region of the country a kid plays in....

For the Midwest? 24/7, followed by Scout. Nationally? 24/7 feels like the most tolerable at the moment.
