Everyone notices that when a guy commits to traditional powerhouses such as alabama, FSU, Texas and USC, he will get a ratings boost more times than not. It's mostly ESPN that does it I think. It's just ESPN pushing their money makers.

Therefore other players have to get a ratings drop just so they won't have 50 5* guys every year.

When we start winning championships our commits will start getting ratings boosts too.

I'm thinking Blackshear slipped on that 1st Pro Agility drill. His Broad jump though is much better than Barnett's.

BS that they took his 5th star. I read an article on Rivsls which basically "he's been struggling with an injury so we dropped him. "

Blackshear said he hears the most from USC and Florida State, with mail still coming from Alabama.

Blackshear is one of the best, if not the best DE in the country. He's stopped all the coaches visits, recruiting interviews, etc...so of course he's going to get dropped in the rankings. He's already made his mind up, and the paysites need to drive excitement about recruits to drive up their rankings, and page views/clicks. When Blackshear takes the field at SC and dominates, then turns into an early round NFL selection, the truth will be revealed. He's be another GREAT DE from SC and making bank.

Good article, thanks for posting. I'm glad he is 100% committed to the Gamecocks and focusing on getting healthy. I hope he has a dominant and more importantly, injury free senior season.

I think Blackshear lost a star about a month ago. I wonder if these times aren't good enough for a 5* DE.

Only 6'3? I know that's not short but seeing as how he's listed as 6'5 most places it's a little disappointing. Not knocking his talent level or anything.

As long as he comes here, I don't care what the services decide to do with him. They can make him a five star or a two star. It won't affect the number of sacks he will get.
