Same order as TheWalrus and for a lot of the same reasons.
247 (the best LSU coverage, great national content and rankings)
Rivals (great national content & ratings)
Scout (some good national content & Coppage does a good job covering high school footbal)
ESPN (best platform but the worst info, especially the ratings)
I like 247 best. Rivals still has some good content and the best search engine in the industry. Scout has some good writers but doesn't cover a lot of states as well as they should. Nobody would look at ESPN if they weren't ESPN (on television). It's a shame people have to listen to ESPN's analysts during all of ESPNU's high school game and combine broadcasts. It just sucks that they have the best reach of any recruiting service when their info is so bad.
Scout has formed a relationship with Fox and 247Sports has something going on with CBS Sports. I hope those partnerships will result in more recruiting and high school coverage on those network's sports entities.
