I wish other sites would take after ESPN and do the lengthy text evaluations they offer. It's nice to see what they are "thinking" when they evaluate, whether I agree with it or not.

247 is coming out with some cool new features.

I've traditionally been all about rivals but 247 has come on extremely strong of late and is much better about updating players.

ESPN is bar none the absolute worse. They're a complete joke.

BBI has great information but they sold their souls for it IMV. Ponamsky writes and ranks whoever Frank tells him to.

Great way to get info, but if you want objectivity, look elsewhere.

247 run a site and a service built on hard work, LSU j-school type folks and real LSU Fans who aren't in it because they know someone juiced into LSU Athletics.

Those two genuinely enjoy what they do and put the effort into it that speaks to that.

*Disclaimer - I am not an admin, relation to Sonny or Shea, contributor or stockholder of 247. I am a member however.

The crystal ball looks like it will be interesting. I don't have any affiliation with 247, I just think they have done everything possible to become the industry leader.

#1. Ranking History: Shows the "ratings" and "rankings" history for each prospect ... shows both 247Sports and #247Composite .. graphical illustration comparing 247Sports with the industry.

#2. The Crystal Ball: Version 1.0 of the Crystal Ball allows any recruiting analyst in the 247Sports network (both National and team reporters) to predict where a prospect is going to commit and sign and records the prediction date. The product shows users the prediction from each analyst and also gives an overall prediction percentage for potential schools. ... Version 2.0 coming later this year will allow all 247Sports members to predict commitments and will earn reputation points, badges and free time for their predictions. ... Version 2.0 will also allow other recruiting analyst in the industry to make predictions and contribute to the analyst prediction.

#3. Skills: The 247Sports national team has assigned 5 different skills for each position. The Skills that each player is rated on are specific for his respective position. Admins have the ability to add more than 5 skills -- especially useful when rating athletes and jumbo athletes. ... Version 2.0 coming later this year will allow 247Sports national analyst to craft a written evaluation as part of this product.

I love 247 but I really wish they had better coverage of basketball recruiting. They do great with football recruiting though.
