Everyone that has even remotely followed recruiting knows that before 247 came along Rivals was the only service worth paying attention to. Now there are 2 with 247 obviously being the other. None of the other services have enough people on the ground to even remotely say that this or that athlete was properly evaluated. Hell, ESPN doesn't even cover Louisiana which is only the 6th best state in the country for producing the most D-1 signees. Oh, and it's THE best per capita with regards to NFL talent. So why in the world would 247 want to not only use a composite ranking that includes these types of companies but also gives them equal weight to boot. It just doesn't make any sense and really does nothing but dilutes your own product. You guys are competing with Rivals for the best service in the business. Be proud of that and trust in yourselves. It's a noble thing to want people to have something else to judge your rankings to. But when you're including subpar services then its really not composite at all.
Because Lucky wants to use ESPN in their formula due to the overwhelming bias towards Bama on ESPN
Proud to support everything Louisiana
Sorry, I had it backwards, look like Ole Miss is number 2 on composite, not 247.

ESPN is a joke in recruiting. They don't have anywhere close to the amount of people you need to really evaluate these kids.
I wonder why when you look at the team rankings right on 247 it doesn't have LSU with any 5* players.
Right now ALL 14 SEC teams are in the Top 40
