"The rankings are typically quite accurate".
This is very true, if you look at the top 10 recruiting teams for the last 5 years - those are mostly your 10 ranked teams in the final poll at the end of the football season.
There are always exceptions like Claiborne and Mathieu, but I think a guy like Anthony Johnson will be worth every star rating he was given. The stars don't matter is for teams that don't recruit well. It's nothing but sour grapes.
