Default 5 stars and 247 composite

I noticed that 2 of the top 10, 3 of the top 12, and 5 of the top 16 recruiting classes on 247 don't have a 5 star commitment for this class with Carolina being the highest ranked to be without one at #5. and #6 Penn St. is the other one in the top ten. No complaints from me about the current class mind you, only an observation. We have 3 players right at the 5* threshold. I wonder how much can be attributed to location vs perception vs recruiting strategy. Thoughts?

Blackshear was a 5 star, but recruiting sites hate us and knocked him down to a 4

If you commit to South Carolina, they remove a star from your name.

Or, if they cannot justify the reduction of a star from a particular recruit, the ncaa gets involved and makes that recruit retake college apptitude tests more times than needed just to be sure that the recruit is not cheating (though they do not say "cheating" it is implied from their request).

Yep, they hate us ... oooor, maybe it's because he's had a lot of injuries and just has to kind of prove himself still worthy.

Probably that they hate us though.

So what you're saying is that we are on double secret probation, but they definitely hate us
