Missouri Valley schools have announced their recruiting classes, and I'm guessing most fans and coaches feel their teams did well. ESPN (http://espn.go.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/conference/_/class/2012/id/21) has listed recruits that they had rated, and it would be hard to argue based on their evaluations that NDSU had a banner year. What are your thoughts on the recruiting classes?

well doesnt look good for us then. But a lot of times its tought to tell how good these guys will be. I usally go by who recruits them also, and what our needs are also.

While recruiting class signings are fun to follow and great for discussion, the only rankings that matter occur in the standings each fall.

spot on, several of the "playmakers" for us inthe playoffs were ND boys from small schools

I think the Bizon (or ESPN) went to the USD School of Counting. Am I the only one that saw they had a commitment from two Smiths from Roosevelt. Andrew is a 6'0" 190lb Safety and Andy is a 6'0" 185 lb Safety.

Kind of curious to me.

I saw a quote from Preston Evans who made a comment that their were probably only 3 people left from his recruiting class left on this year's roster. Some didn't even make it to the 1st Fall Camp.

First of all, recruiting doesn't = wins, if it was about recruiting Charlie Weis would still be at Notre Dame and Ron Zook would have never had to leave Florida.

Second of all a friend of mine from college (BHSU) who never played football there, was a 100ish QB ranking (according to ESPN) in the nation his senior year, Jon Doom who played at DWU was in the same area as a ranked recruit.

Third A 45 doesn't mean anything, it just means that you have a profile, but they haven't evaluated anything on you. I've seen a fair share of NAIA athletes get an ESPN profile

And Scout and Rivals are in a similar boat, I will say that some Rivals/Scouts state sites are much better then others, it seems Arizona has a pretty solid one, but still the rankings are what they are.

That's why I put "(or ESPN)" in there with it.

I didn't know if that was the Bison reporting or ESPN being their usual uninformed self about things west of the Mississippi and east of the Rockies.

Just to show how ineffective the "star " system of ranking recruits is,seven players on the New England Patriots Super Bowl roster were no star recruits coming out of high school.

I think this means NDSU signed more highly rated recruits than any other MVFC school which means nothing more than that.
