The prospect search engine is more difficult and less user friendly than competing sites.
I can deal with the user interface being a little less friendly and intuitive. However, there is a major flaw.
Specifically, when I search for a prospect under "advanced search" and utilize the "profile search" and "recruitment search" tabs, when the results have more than 50 prospects, and I hit next or click page 2, NO RESULTS ARE SHOWN.
Basically, I cannot search for every prospect in the database who is over 6'-4" and plays Offensive Tackle or some other type search and view all my results.
Please, have the 247 tech team fix this. It is very annoying for a recruiting junkie like myself.
I will check this out and get it over to the team in Nashville. They are always on top of things.
I can promise you this, I've never seen a company in this recruiting game be more forward-thinking than 247Sports. We will keep getting better and better.

Ill second that the prospect search is a bit time comsuming. I actually go to google and type in the prospects name and 247 for the search there over trying to find it on the site.

Absolutely love this site, but when I try to access the Top 247 prospect list, always get shadows and overlap of print on page - probably something I'm doing wrong, but I've quit using it. Unfortunately, Rivals and Scout are just so much easier for me to navigate.
I have this exact same problem. I thought it was just somthing on my end that I have set up wrong. Like the lists are all the way to the right of the screen and go through the ads? I have to switch browsers to get it right. My "Internet Explorer" shows it like that but my "Firefox" browser shows it centered.
Hey guys, it's fine to point out a problem, but don't compare 247 to any other recruiting service. There is no comparison.
Shea....while you're at it, see if your people can do something about the amount of time it takes the screen to fill up. Ads show up quickly, but screen stays blank for way too long. Other than that, no problems. Thx
I agree 100% and it is something I have passed along to others at headquarters and it is something that will be made more user friendly.
The Search Feature has been upgraded some but there are still some kinks that are being worked out.
Hang in there Chim and know that when we get all of our bells and whistles no other site or network will come close to matching what we will offer from a Technology standpoint
That's for sure. No other site is gonna match these guys for speed and innovation as they get the bugs worked out. The information is second to none. If there were a better site then I would be there.
This. Is the easiest way to search for specific recruits right now. You can search by position and/or State . I Will post some direct links to some of the categories when I get to my laptop. I wish you could search by Hugh school the way you an do on Rivals. The IT gjuys need to check their search function out. I've never had a membership with them, but I use ther search function nearly every day. Someone needs to let the 247Sports Suits tknow they are missing out on a ton of business from geeks like myself.

I have been a loyal member of another site for over 10 years. I think the folks that run this site are much more knowledgable and nicer than what I'm used to. The posters are more positive which makes my experience more enjoyable. I am having a little trouble navigating on my phone, maybe because I'm used to using the thread view. Trying to decide if I will make the move to 24/7.....

Chopper, seriously, make the move. unless you are in a year long membership commitment elsewhere, there is absolutely no reason not to switch.
ive been a member of all 3, and it couldn't be any more obvious to me that this is the best service.
Scroll though and try to find a question that's gone unanswered. Then do that on your other service
Coming to this board will be a really good experience. This thread is over a technical issue that isn't really that big of a deal. If you are an LSU Sports fan, you'll be very pleased with the amount and quality of the information here. I came from the LSU Scout site when Sonny Shipp and Shea Dixon made their move here. This board is where the best info comes out.
The " Show post to Geaux247 subscribers only" posts are usually the ones with the best information, whether it's from the Geaux247 writers or others. There are some guys that carefully post good information they obtained through their LSU connections in bits and pieces to keep their sources intact. We get a number of the writers from other 247 Team sites that will post their articles here when LSU is mentioned by a recruit. The 247 national guys will post pretty often during spring and summer when thay are evaluating kids at camps/combines.
Chopper1, please don't let this thread about the search function keep you from joining in on the best LSU site ever.
Speaking of searches, who is this Keyan Williams Ht: 5-11 | Wt: 170 Wide Receiver New Orleans, LA (Lusher Charter School) that's been added to the 2014 ▾LA ▾WR in the 247Sports Rankings?
2014 ▾LA ▾WR: http://247sports.com/Season/2014-Football/RecruitRankings?State=LA&InstitutionGroup=HighSchool&Position=WR
Kid's got offers from A&M and Colorado State: http://247sports.com/Player/Keyan-Williams-25769
Some help with searching for kids by position.
The first link in this post can be changed by year, state and position to find kids in the 247 Top 247.
If you put your courser on "Football Recruiting" on any 247 page, you can go down the drop-down menu to "Football Rankings" (pic 1). After clicking "Football Ranking" and going to that page click on "By Position" (pic 2) and this page with every position for both the 247 and 247 Composite rankings.(pic 3).
Here is the address for the "Rankings by Position" page to bookmark. http://247sports.com/Season/2013-Football?View=Rankings
You can change the year or the sport at the very top with a drop-down there.
Won't help with players over 6'4" but it does get you to every position.
Thanks Nad and 58! I have about 10 months left on Tigerbait, but I like it better here. I have always had a big problem with the way they ignore questions. I'm not really a computer guy and have trouble navigating on a new site, especially on this "smart" phone. : D Thank you for your kind words!
Chopper: If you would like to give me a call on my cell (225-936-0538) I will walk you through the navigation on both the full site and mobile.
We are always accessible by phone/board/email and will be glad to help my friend:)
I second chopper1 post.. Very positive unlike tigerdroppings..
Thanks Sonny. Btw you were highly recommended by our mutual friend, Stephen DeBessonette.
Are you in BR too Chopper?
No Sonny, I'm a Minden boy. Been here all my life. I saw you at the Bash and was going to introduce myself, but you were swamped with fans. :-)
Sonny is the Wayne Newton of recruiting. Has people's wives throwing themselves at him on a regular basis. With all of that hair, Shea. might be the Justin Bieber of recruiting.
Ha! Ha! He may not appreciate that, 58!
That's some good stuff right there!
Sonny, Thank you for passing that along. You and Shea run the best LSU site on the web. This is my one small complaint. Other than this one thing, I cannot find any complaints about the Geuax247 site.
Thank you, Sonny and Shea for a great finish to the 2013 recruiting cycle. You two definitely provide the most consistent, in depth, real information about LSU sports.
I haven't signed up for the entire year just yet. I will be doing so soon and cancelling my membership to the Rivals site. The quality of what 247 provides FAR EXCEEDS Scout, Rivals and BBI.
I don't know what's more insulting....Wayne Newton or Justin Bieber:)
