    Their article on Top Pac-12 Freshman.


    Can't even verify how many games have been played in 2014.

    When I read it the first time I was also confused. Defense. ST. Kickoff Returns. Then I realized that is not an updated scouting report. That is a HS report.

    They are quoting their summary of him as a recruiting prospect from the year before with the idea of comparing their projection to his performance. In high school he was an effective KO returner who also played some DB and ran a lot of sweeps.


    Edit: S2S beat me to it.

    The context is really kind of odd though. Evaluating their 2014 season by comparing them to their HS scouting report is odd.

    Just trying to pat themselves on the back?

    Ignore all the guys who don't fit the scouting reports and focus on the ones who do.

    ESPN would like to steal the business from Rivals and Scout. So far they are a clear 3rd place.

    This kind of article may be an attempt to push more college fans to their recruiting sites.

    Sort of. Buffs were still last in these standings.

    ESPN is lame.

    Too bad they dominate the college football broadcasts most of the week.
