Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

#34      
Seems....unheralded. I know Lunney's first offer was to Brock Glenn, who we don't seem to have much traction with. I was hoping we'd be able to land a 'name' at QB this year since we really won't have one on the roster. Should be an enticing opportunity
I'm definitely no expert (so just my uninformed opinion), but I like Brown's film quite a bit more than Murphy's. Brown looks to be able to throw it deep/with pace much more easily, showed decent feet, threw at least one strike on the move....intriguing prospect at 6'4" (would obviously want to bulk him up some).

I’ll say after only because last year it seemed they spread the announcements out to coincide with official visits. Or that’s how I remember it. No clue on who might be first.

He's a top 1000 player (good), but his point rating is only .81 (bad). Why are those two ratings so incongruent?

My guess is 247 is still evaluating a lot of players in the class, hence the lower values at the bottom. Maybe they are course correcting on their yearly player rating inflation.

Yeah, I thought about the former, but what that means then is he will fall out of the top 1000 as they find more higher rated players to pass him up? I know to take ratings with a grain of salt, but I like numbers and find it interesting to analyze. To that latter, have ratings been rising over the years?

Crazy 24/7 stat: there are only 9 players with a rating in the .8200s. For perspective, there are 5 other players with the same .8165 rating as Prichard.

I just looked at the list. The person only 64 spots higher is >.84, which is what I would have expected for top 1000. Seems like a step drop off, and to your point they skip the .82s for the most part. It would be interesting to understand the methodology.
