Pretty sure Keeston Terry transferred there after being dismissed by Weis.

Just noticed Rivals recently updated their rankings for the 2017 class recruits and all 3 of KU's current recruits are now ranked.

Jared Hocker the 6'5" 290lbs. OT out of Birdville HS in North Richland Hills, TX is now ranked a 5.7 3 star.

Grant Polley, the 6'5" 275lbs. OT out of Denton HS in Denton, TX is also ranked a 5.7 3 star.

Dominic Williams, the 5'9" 186lbs. RB out of Parish Episcopal HS in Dallas, TX is still ranked a 5.6 3 star.

Not sure if they only updated the ranks of unranked recruits or the entire recruiting database for 2017. Both Hocker and Polley were unranked previously and Dom Williams was initially ranked the same as now.

Just in case anyone was wondering, 5.7 is the highest rated 3 star for Rivals. They call the number ranking the Rivals Rating and it plays into how they rank total team recruiting ranks.

I'd say not bad at all for KU to have 2 borderline 4 star OT's already committed for 2017 and a very good solid 3 star RB. Depending on how Williams' season goes and if he goes camping this summer and does well, his rank could rise as well. Personally, I think he's better than is current ranking right now.

They are probably on their way to being 5 stars. Ask me in 12 months about these three early verbals. Especially if we are at 1-23.

There's no need to be facetious about them being high 3 star type guys right now, at least as far as Rivals is concerned.

You previously have expressed the opinion that recruiting service rankings are proof of quality of the recruits. Now you're not so sure and are going to wait and see?

Rivals ranking in the days prior to LOI mean so much more. I don't think we can be real accurate this far away from 2017. About committing or the players ranking. Very nice to have these three say stuff like I like Beaty. Again, 1-23 would make a normal kid think twice.

Way nice to know

One day unranked. Next day Rivals has them 3-4 stars. That is why I say a lot of air pumping going on. Maybe yes, maybe no. Putting it out there.

You do realize that this is the normal operation for Rivals? Every recruit starts out unranked and as Rivals goes through their waves of evaluating they continually add rankings until they're all rated with few exceptions and even then they go through a few more updates.

As far as I can tell this is the 2nd wave of rankings for the 2017 class by Rivals.

So, your assertion that air pumping may or may not be going on is about Rivals possibly pumping that air as they're the ones who are doing the ratings.

If you don't believe in Rivals ratings now, you still seem to put merit in awards and all 3 of these recruits have plenty of them and they haven't even played their Senior years yet.

Players in HS work hard for HS awards. Rankings are going to go back and forth for 12 months. It's normal. And I look more at team rankings closer to 2017 LOI to get a sense of what is going on.

I think that's the date of our 2nd Junior Day this year. The 1st one is the week before on March 5.
