I thought last year was really good, deeper than 2010 and the top end talent was better than 2010's in my opinion with the Millers, Hayes, Grant, DePriest, Bennett, Walker, Hamilton, Vannett, Farris, Hardy, etc.

This year is the best in quite a while (was Ginn's class loaded?), I think. It's ridiculous enough with the 7-8 DEs, and then you have Kalis, Dunn, Ball, Mauk, Wilson, Bogard, Bolden, Ringer, Mahone, Stanford, Madaris, Dodson, Decker, Perry, etc. Just nuts.
Agreed with this. I would rank only the 2002 group of talent over the 2012 class, and then right behind it I would have 2011, of the elite ones anyway.

And Chris Martin, defensive end at UF, plans to transfer...again. Chris, pick a school and stick with it for once.

Re: 2012 Recruiting Thread

So is Rivals still the go-to ranking system? I'm not sure I trust them this season after the Barry Every incident.

Rivals is a joke with how they rank players outside of the Southeast/Texas.

I switched to them too and haven't looked back.

Funny story from last month. Reggie Ragland(LB) is a top 100 player out of the 2012 class. Rivals rated him fairly low because they claimed there was no junior film on at LB. Well, word got over to 247 and a couple of days after Rivals said this, 247 posted his junior LB film to his profile lol.

Rivals is becoming a joke. The Alabama site is run by a damn newspaper lol.

Re: 2012 Recruiting Thread

Rivals gets worse and worse every year, especially with the Midwest. They continue to have no Midwest analyst, and their rankings reflect it. Scout and 24/7 have surpassed them and are leaving them in the dust.

Re: 2012 Recruiting Thread

I haven't really used 24/7, I've stuck with scout, but I'm gonna have to check that out.
