His ranking dropping is probably justified based on how he looked during the 2 weeks during the 2 all-star games as he is 1) not polished as a WR, 2) not physically read to play right away, and 3) has a lot to work on, thus he is not a top 100 recruit.

Now, how can Jacob Park remain in the top 100 in the 247 rankings since he has looked awful in the live action? 247 has invested too much time defending his ranking to drop him from there is my guess.
I didn't see the Shrine Bowl but I did see the other All Star game and he looked awful. If they didn't drop Park, how could they justify dropping anyone?

With Caldwell's commitment today (assuming it becomes official), we are up to 18. That leaves four spots. Finishing with Green, Lammons, Prince, and Wideman/Scott would be a hell of way to close. As of now, it seems like we are trending with three of them (Green, Lammons, and Prince).

Lamin counts back so we can sign a max of 23. If Caldwell's commitment is accepted then we have room for 5 if there are 5 players they really want to take.

So Lamin won't count against the 22 for 2014?

According to TBS we can count him back so no he won't. That means we can bring in a max of 23 and have 5 slots remaining if this commitment sticks. Another thing to watch is Stallworth because I'm not sold on that commitment holding up.

Good to know about the numbers. I agree about Stallworth, but he has said he isn't switching. I guess they all have to say that though. Hopefully we can firm it up this weekend.

SIAP, but Lamin's 247 composite rating has went up to a 4*, which now gives us seven 4* players according to 247. And once Caldwell's commitment becomes official, that will give us eight.

Samuel is a 4* 92, so that would give us 9 once Caldwell becomes official.

Lamin
Davidson
BAW
Sawyer
Stanley
Smith
Caldwell
Samuel
Crosby

You can thank Rivals bumping him up to a 4* and we have 9 4* commits by the Rivals rankings now.

But 247 only counts it as a 4* if the player gets a 4* on the 247 rankings and on the composite rankings. So with that being said Smith, Sawyer, Lamin, Davidson, Stanley, Crosby, and BAW are the players they count as 4* players. Stupid, I know. However, if Rivals can give Samuel a bump in their rankings that should bump his 247 composite rankings to a 4* as well, then 247 would count him as a full 4* player. Hope that didn't sound too confusing.

I understand. Personally, I just count the composite rankings as their ranking. To each his own, I guess.

I normally don't mess with 247's rankings all that much. For some reason I prefer Rivals.

Is rivals doing anymore updates? I would assume whatever their ratings are now would be final being seasons and HS bowls are all completed and being so close to signing day. I could be wrong though. Anyone know for sure if they are doing anymore ratings updates?

They're working on updates this week. I've seen a few tweets about it. I think the new and final rankings come out Monday.
