Is it current and complete? Is 16 where we're at right now?
I also noticed that the ranking doesn't update automatically apparently. It says that we are 83rd right now, but if you go to the full list, we come in at 66.
And in just those few seconds, we moved down to 68. So the complete team listing is refreshed routinely it looks like.

Today I’ll take any kind of passion. Just care! Complain, moan, groan, or call for somebody’s head. CARE !! - OJ
16 is where I feel comfortable right now.
Xavier Johnson is a little mysterious. He's been reported as a Toledo commitment but he told me recently USA is still in there.
I'm trying to get clarification.
I was confused by the rankings as well but i think the 83rd on our list is based on average rating per player and the 66 (or 68) is based on total points, so the more commitments the higher the number.
Ah, that makes sense. Thanks.
The commit and offer lists are pretty sweet, good info for the die hard fans.
I like it too. Just noticed the "Breakdown" on the far right too that shows at a glance how many recruits there are from what states, and then by position as well.
Another question for you AJ - what are the two sets of star ratings for each player? For example, Jalen Wells has both a 3* and a 2* rating. Is it a "them vs everyone else" rating set up?
Glad I'm not the only one that doesn't understand this.

Hey AJ. Caleb Alves showed.....
247 launched a new feature a short time ago called the Composite Ratings. It is an average rating per player based on all the major recruiting services' evaluations. That second rating you see is the composite.
He's been waiting on you to arrive......
FWIW, both rankings show a ranking in the 60's now. The way the composite is set up on the full listing, it still skews towards teams with more commits, but I think that's as it should be. If we have 16 while other teams only have 5, chances are very likely that we'll end up with a better recruiting class than them anyway. We have to hold on to ours, while they still have to hunt, find, and get kids to commit. All of the big dogs are closer to our number, than the lower anyway.
The more and more I look around, the more I'm really starting to like this move. Really like the "Timeline" feature, both under the News heading, and under each individual player. And then all of the twitter comments about each player. At first I was thinking that the twitter feed was acting Scout-esque by giving us info on players we had nothing to do with, but I quickly noticed that those being mentioned are also listed as targets. Neat compilation of features.
Noticed something that needs a little fine tuning - on the Football Targets tab, current commits aren't labeled as such (only 1 is - DF I think it was).
Weird that I quoted myself. Could've sworn I clicked quote under DK's post . . .
I like this class a lot. If we can hold on to most of the ones we have and do well in our JC recruiting for December, we'll have a nice influx of talent for next season.
I'm liking all the synergistic features, too. i also like using bug words like synergistic.
They are still doing work on the network, so I'm sure there will be small things like the ones you noticed that will get fixed in time.
What are "bug" words?
Horizontally enhanced, vertically challenged, follically impaired...
A combination of "big" and "ugly". Should I have gone bugly?
We're actually doing better than the numbers would indicate. We appear to be the only team (at least as far as I've looked) to have JC recruits listed. All of them are unrated at this point. Unrated players are given 70 points as a baseline for the averages, so if you take them out and only average the guys who are rated (like every other team), then our average player is over 80. Very good number for where we are.
BTW, 80 is the number that differentiates a 2 star from a 3 star.

I know that I spend a lot of time reviewing recruits, but this is something I would have never thought about. Good analysis SQ. Maybe the coaches are thinking along the same line.
I would sure hope so.
Can anyone explain why the symbols for; Send private message; follow user; ignore user ....are not showing up on my posts.
Also, I made a correcting edit on my first post...and, the edit sign has appeared on all my following post.
Can anyone explain this to me?
The symbols don't show up under your own profile, only those of others that you are viewing.
Are you seeing a message saying you edited all your following posts? Or is it the button allowing you to edit the other posts that you see?
Thanks for enlighting Mr. Dumbo.
So, the symbols on my post will not show because I'm not going to message myself.....or, follow user (me)....or, ignore user (me). How dense. My advancing age must be the culprit.
And, YES, the edit button prints on all my posts because it is there to allow me to edit my post for all the errors I'm certain to make. WOW!
Thanks for helping out a struggling elder citizen. It was nice of you to walk me across the street.
