New 247Sports Composite ratings for UF commits – 247Sports
The industry-generated 247Sports Composite saw an update on Monday afternoon as new industry rankings were released. The following is a detailed and in-depth look at how the 247Sports Composite is calculated:
The 247Sports Composite Rating is a proprietary algorithm that compiles prospect “rankings” and “ratings” listed in the public domain by the major media recruiting services. It converts average industry ranks and ratings into a linear composite index capping at 1.0000, which indicates a consensus No. 1 prospect across all services.
The 247Sports Composite Rating is the industry’s most comprehensive and unbiased prospect ranking and is also used to generate 247Sports Team Recruiting Ranking
All major media services share an equal percentage in the 247Sports Composite Rating.
The composite index equally weights this percentage among the services that participate in a ranking for that specific prospect.
A composite strength meter, indicated by red bars, illustrates the total number of industry services that have ranked the prospect. A full strength meter indicates the prospect has been ranked by all industry services participating in the composite.
All industry services have a different philosophy on number of “stars” distributed with each class. The 247Sports Composite Rating assigns stars based on an approximate average distribution of stars from the industry.
