I'm just glad that, for the most part, people seem to no longer be paying these ratings much attention.
They're fun talking points, but Chris Jones illustrates the point that people go unnoticed. Heck, even a current target, Jackson, went largely under the radar because of grade concerns and lack of film. Our staff does a great job of recruiting to our system and expectations (good Vonn Bell article on rivals mentions it). Thompson has said one of the first things he does when talking to a recruit is go over a few questions to see if the kid could "fit in" with what CNS expects.
