    Garry,

    I would like to request that you and Randy rate the top 20 players in California for the 2018 class. Before NSD, this would be nice to see. With it, I would love to see what criteria you are using in order to evaluate and rank the kids; is it Senior year play, how well they will do in college, how well they project as NFL players, etc.

    This would be really fun and would give us insight as to who you guys think are the best players in California in this class and how many of them (probably around half) will end up in USC's class this year.

    Thanks and Fight On!
    BLF

    Cool idea BLF.

    But, projection as NFL players that's a little far ahead and hard to do.

    Not saying that is what I want to base it on, just asking them to give their criteria for rankings. For example, before the merger 247 leaned towards ranking that way and ESPN "claims" that their rankings are based on NFL projections.

    ESPN, the clown network, has a bunch of guys in NY that sit and watch video all day. 247 uses guys nationally and locally to get a look at players first hand at least when they can and then watch video. Of course coaches are at games all season looking at players. Helton found Sam when he went to a game to watch another player. The number of offers a player gets greatly influences his star ranking. Use the kid from Wyoming as an example. Not recruited because nobody went to see him, not hardly rated in high school, now is a prime nfl draftee at QB.

    Actually, Coach O was the first one to notice Sam when he went to practice to scout former Stanford and current Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Kyle Murphy. But emphasizes your point even more because practice surely doesn't show up on tape.
