Did I miss something?

Was Shelton Sampson downgraded from a 5* to a 4* on 247 post commitment? I haven't been following recruiting closely this year so SIAP.

Probably so. That’s the way things go with them.

Eh it doesn’t matter. They’re not any less talented than when they were 5 stars, and they will prove it on the field. Most of these scouts never played a down of football in their life anyways

At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if Harbor (#9 overall) gets bumped down to 4 stars if he commits here

You can actually check his ranking history when you click on his 247 profile. He dropped in the composite because Rivals did an update.

He has had the same rating on 247s individual ratings all year.

In the long term, you're right. The problem I have with it though is a lot of people put a whole lot of stock in recruiting class rankings. These guys getting bumped down for no logical reason basically proves that the rankings are biased and have no credibility.

That’s why I trust the coaches to evaluate players themselves. As long as there aren’t a lot of swing and misses I’m satisfied

shite is annoying and happens like clockwork. Regardless when it’s all done in February this is going to be a monster class that will be able to compete at an extremely high level.

If it's not handled by the LSU staff properly, it sure can hurt. These top HS guys have huge egos, and want to be ranked as high as possible. In theory, that could cause us to lose recruits because of this if they think they'd be ranked higher by committing elsewhere.

It looks like BK and staff are handling this by getting out in front of it by telling the recruits this will happen. It's also smart to point to how many guys we have in the league, and in the grand scheme of things, dropping in the recruiting rankings doesn't mean much. Getting to LSU and ultimately the NFL does.
