Can you explain what the difference is between 247 rankings and 247 composite rankings are?
This is from Gentry Estes at our Georgia site
We're proud to unveil this morning a very cool upgrade to our recruiting rankings system upgrade that we believe will be a game-changer in this industry.
The 247Composite Ranking takes ratings on prospects through the industry and combines them into one formula. Observe with Tramel Terry ...
The 247Composite Rating is the industry's most comprehensive and unbiased prospect ranking and is also used to generate 247Sports Team Recruiting Rankings. We'll continue to offer the same standard 247Sports player rankings as well.
Here are the gritty details ...
The 247Composite Rating is a proprietary algorithm that compiles prospect "rankings" and "ratings" listed in the public domain by the major media recruiting services. It converts average industry ranks and ratings into a linear composite index capping at 1.0000, which indicates a concensus No. 1 prospect across all services.
All major media services share an equal percentage in the 247Composite Rating.
The composite index equally weights this percentage among the services that participate in a ranking for that specific prospect.
A composite strength meter, indicated by red bars, illustrates the total number of industry services that have ranked the prospect. A full strength meter indicates the prospect has been ranked by all industry services participating in the composite.
All industry services have a different philosophy on number of "stars" distributed with each class. The 247Composite Rating assigns stars based on an approximate average distribution of stars from the industry.
