There are recruiting services out there that will rank the same players differently. For example, Rivals ranks Jordan Simmons a 5 star, 247 Sports ranks him a 4 star. Rivals ranks Morgan Breslin a 4 star, 247 sports ranks him a 3 star. Which of these two recruiting sites has been a more credible/accurate source as far as their ranking of players?
A: I don’t really recommend a recruiting service because a lot of times this is guesswork. Remember everyone ranked Kyle Prater in the top 10 two years ago. Whitney Lewis was also a can’t-miss prospect. I think Rivals is the bigger and better known of the two. I like that 247 is tougher in rankings the two prospects you mentioned. On the other hand, they rank Aric Armstead the No. 1 prospect in the country while Rivals has him 29th. That’s quite a gulf.

A: Now that Orgeron is over his gout, I will go with him. If there is a hopping the wall competition, I might go with Mora.
