    Here's where Rivals ranks us and those around us using average stars, not total points, which is kind of a BS way of ranking IMO.

    Not bad company - all things considered.

    Rank Avg * School
    57 2.72 Kansas State
    59 2.71 Georgia Tech
    60 2.70 Wake Forest
    61 2.68 Houston
    61 2.68 Colorado
    63 2.61 Texas Tech
    63 2.61 UCF
    65 2.60 Cincinnati
    66 2.58 Syracuse

    120 2.00 San Jose State

    Total points has some flaws. You can really inflate the ranking of your class by signing a center and a fullback. It's common that if a kid is rated for one of those positions and ends up at a BCS school that he'll be a top 10 for the position. Embree's 2012 class was inflated quite a bit by that. Specifically, Clay Norgard (as a 3*, 5.6 player) was rated the #4 FB in the nation. We got the same bonus points for that which we would have received for signing the nation's #4 QB.

    I much prefer the average or the Rivals Rating, which they don't publish and you have to dig deeper for. It's important whether your 3* guys were closer to 5.5 or 5.7, because that tells me whether they were on the edge of 4* or on the edge of 2*. A 4* can be anywhere from a 5.8 to a 6.0 and a 2* could be anywhere from a 4.9 to a 5.4 rating. That matters a lot.

    The 247 composite rankings do a pretty good job of that IMO.

    247's Composite rankings have us at a 81.78/player so we were mainly going after lower 3*'s according to them.
