He is outside of the TOP 247 because he runs a slow 40 and is a shade under 6'1. I think it will be impossible to take any site seriously that does not bump him up in the final rankings.

His play on the field this week at the highest HS level, speaks for itself and then you have the intangibles that led to him being selected a captain, the way he carries himself. and you just know this kid is going to be successful.

Jacob Park is ranked #5 Pro-Style QB because he can throw the ball 60yards flat footed, if anyone watched him play in the Shrine or Army games they would see that he is not even close to the #5 QB in the country. He can't throw the ball accurately, makes poor decisions, and crumbles under pressure.


BAW is being slighted in his ranking because of his size and 40 time and Park is being given the bump because of his arm strength in shorts.

this is exactly why I get annoyed with these recruiting services......they put far too much emphasis on measurables and not nearly enough on how they perform on the field...which is why they need to be taken with a grain of salt.

This is why I don't understand why people pay $ to these "recruiting service" websites.

They have their use. Aside from the team information they put out, if you pay close attention to recruiting and enjoy it you can find out a lot about where a potential recruit is leaning. 247 lets you read other teams message boards so you can read VIP info from say UGA website which I think is a really nice feature. I also like to follow our baseball team a lot and both pay sites pay a lot of attention to the team, you are not going to find that information anywhere else really.

You just don't take their word as gospel and believe every 5*/4* recruit they rated is correctly rated, it is impossible to do such a thing.

Sometimes play on the field can be misleading too. Especially during the high school season when there may be 1 or 2 division 1 prospects on the field between both teams. I see your point though. These all-star games can give you a glimpse at how highly rated players will perform against real opponents.

I'd like to see more of them.

Some kids just look good in a uniform and others just play good in the uniform (excuse my poor grammar, I wanted it to sound similar).

He played a little. Dropped a screen pass on the east's first possession. None of the east receivers were able to make much of an impact because of poor qb play and a good west defense.

Shaq was lit up on that play. I don't recall him playing after that so he may have been injured.
