Today we release our feelings about the quarterback position and where things stand for those schools.
Also … please remember, this is a ranking of HIGH SCHOOL commitments … this is only one way our FCS rankings differentiate us from 247Sports and Rivals etc. Transfers will be evaluated at a later date. Also … we don’t pay any attention to the star rating (or lack thereof). This ranking is based solely on how each athlete is coveted, and who wanted him … and how many wanted him. That’s it. Film evaluation is something I will leave up to the coaches, as they have their jobs on the line with that and there’s no way I could rival them in that department.
More FCS Coverage:
Quick rankings explanation:
- Only high school recruits are taken into account. Transfers are separate and will be evaluated much later this spring.
- The system is based on school offers, NOT 247Sports or Rivals. Every level of D-1 (P5, G5, FCS) has a particular tiered point total.
- When it comes to team rankings, Every kid in the class counts.
- I respect PWOs — preferred walk-ons. They get credit too. The FCS is the perfect level for walk-ons. They matter to these schools.
