We just landed a big time in-state prospect. Can we not little brother it up for a little while? Everyone knows he's good.

Not little brother-ing it up. Just pointing out how ridiculous it is.

Did you guys see Kerryon Johnson

Before committing: 5*

http://bleacherrepor...p-decision-date

Still Before: 5*

http://www.al.com/sp...hnson_to_v.html

After committing: 4*

http://www.al.com/sp...ar_running.html

You know you're quoting Bleacher Report and Al.com don't you? Not exactly the sources you want to use for accuracy.

Additionally, virtually every recruit will bounce up and down in the rankings several times over the next 10 months until NSD; happens every year.

If he has a good senior season and shows out at combines/events, he'll shoot back up. If he stinks it up during his senior year, or if he gets injured and they don't have any stats with which to grade him, he'll drop.

There's no conspiracy here; it's safe, you can go outside without the TinFoilHat.gif. :trollface:

All the recruiting sites have him as a high 4*, just a point or so away from being a 5*.

Like I said, they'll be adjusting those ratings and rankings all year as they see more and more recruits in person and on film.

They all have him as the #4 guy or better at his position; but if you're one of those star-gazers who's suddenly unhappy that he dropped a fraction and the 4 stars is a deal-breaker, you can certainly send him to Gainesville. :D

I'm curious, whats your explanation of the lack of consistency in the star ranking over the course of the last month with the same news source?

Will his ranking change? No doubt, Water is wet. Im well aware of what rankings do over the course of the year

Im neither a star gazer or chaser, Pointing out when things dont look right is hardly accepting of that title.

When will Auburn ever get any respect skip? You win the NC in 2010 play for it last year and everyone hates you... even the recruiting sites... or they're run by dadgum bammers.

Well, since every site has him as a 4*, my explanation would be that when they looked up his ranking and rating for the latest articles it had changed.
