Non-Texas recruiting: 2020

Just so we we're clear, Rivals fucked up. That's not in question. Profiles get created in 2 manners: someone manually creates them or they are scraped. If it's a manual creation, that person needs to have their shit together and fact check things. Rivals didn't. They're morons. But 247 just running a scrape and having a new profile pop up is different. If I get on a bus or in an uber, I'm not asking the driver every time if I can see their driver's license. I just assume the guys employing them did their due diligence. It's also the same reason you don't see industry analysts calling Alabama coaches to confirm every "offer" they send out. They just listen to the kid more times than not. 

That's fair. Unlike your car service though, you won't get a ticket if your driver gets pulled over and can't provide their license. If 247 wants to scrape and put up profiles another system puts up, then they should share in any bad press for being too lazy or tight-fisted to check the data they put on their own site. Rivals fucked up by straight getting duped. 247 fucked up by not doing due diligence on what they put on their website. You may give them a pass, but I see it as something a low-level editor could have checked with little effort. (Just like a low-level editor could actually make these recruiting 'analysts' read like they have some proficiency with the English language.)

When does 24/7 start scrapping texaggy ratings? You can't have any kind of complete composite without Looch's stamp.

Scrapping is the right word choice.

Funny how Rivals didn't bother to rate Jeffrey Carter until fucking December, but they had no problem rushing to put up a rating for a nonexistent kid.

Rivals should just be honest and announce they're not going to rate kinds who don't appear at their camps.

Why would they scrap them? They aren't using them now.

I understand the composite.  
I also understand that if anyone publishes a composite of someone that doesn't exist,  whether it was scraped from another source or not,   you have a meaningless composite.  
 
That one guy's composite ranking was meaningless, but it's not like it had any major impact on the composite rankings of the real players.

That's a lot of butt hurt over something that is "****" and doesn't matter....

At least they are helping recruits believe that they should consider visiting Texas as it will likely up their ranking. I for one appreciate their help getting top recruits on our campus.

For someone who doesn't care about SB NATION and Texas, he sure spends a lot of his free time defending his shitty site and shitty school.

I mean this sincerely - is there some significance this?

Not really, other than it's a non-Texas 2020 commit with quite a few big offers and likely a guy that could rise in the rankings ...

Does he have some really white, marginally athletic, PWO candidate teammate who runs a 4.7 40 at 160 pounds that we might get in on though?

Alec Bryant to LSU. OU was recruiting him hard for a long time, no idea if the new defensive staff was as high on him though. Wonder if LSU takes Branard Wright soon, too?

OU’s 2020 defensive recruiting really seems to be falling apart. Grinch may be the Giles of DCs.

Morven Joseph commits to Florida.

Jimbo didn't offer... he wasn't the SEC West level good in Florida that he's looking to offer now that his prospects are dimming in state.

That 1 CB to USC missed it by "This much".

-Three letters [check]
-"S" & "U" are two of those three letters [check]
-Head coach is a bit of a clueless fuck [check]
-The university is west of the Mississippi River [ch... OHHHH...

...missed it by about a mile... so close. Please try again.]

...according to my untrained eye, Booker does look like a pretty good player.  

https://www.hudl.com/video/3/10369142/5bb12879d45e781130a71060

Mine too. He looks like a LB who outgrew LB.

He's pretty quick & strong, but he also appears to be playing against much weaker competition.

He looks like he could put on a lot of muscle in his lower body and that would make him a monster.
 

SCATTERSHOOTING WHILE THINKING... I was about 1/2 his weight late in my junior year of high school. I can't imagine the grocery bill for some of these parents. (or the plumbing bills)

Which means...?

(I think that that's Houston area and I grew up in Dallas. I also haven't really lived in Texas for ~20 years, so I don't know

-if Westfield plays good teams  /[he performed against top competition]
-if Westfield has so many good player that he's rarely double teamed.
-if Westfield is the only team worth a shit in their district...

Excuse my ignorance, but I don't know the significance of Westfield.

The Booker kid was the camp MVP or something like that and he did win a rep against Parr. Regardless, the dad is a total ass. Trash talking Lindberg without knowing who he is even though Chad didn't participate.

Westfield plays 6A Houston football, against a bunch of good athletes, although sometimes not the best coached. The competition is pretty good.

Isn’t he the one that’s pretty good friends with Princley Umanmiely, they rode together to Norman a few times? Would this help seal the deal with Princely pretty quickly?

Grinch definitely wants quicker guys up front so that could easily have been a factor.

They’ve now installed a garage door. They can almost squeeze these 350+ lb tubs of lard in now two at a time.

They had to install the garage door after Chasen Hines slathered the last door in mayonnaise gnawed it from it's hinges.

Interesting look at the graphic design market for recruits

 

It’s weird that there’s no mention of @Txsbigeasy1 and how he’s changing the world of edits by meshing in both superheroes and subpar quality control.

Nahlin thinks he can be a contingency plan at DL.

Here he is against Parr. I would not call that getting embarrassed.
