Yeah, every year, there are a bunch that the recruiting services never both to re-evaluate. Maurer was one of those from last year's class. Had an amazing Senior year, but they just kept him at 3 stars as if nothing ever happened. His last 'rating change' according to 247 was 7/31/2018, a month before the start of his Senior season.
I'm actually pleasantly surprised that the re-evaluated as many as they did for the 2020 class, but they still missed a bunch of players.
Exactly. There's no requirement to rerank each and every one of the thousands of rated recruits. Especially when you get outside the top few hundred, the difference in 500 vs 450 doesn't mean a ton and isn't as clear as #50 and #1. I'd say hundreds of kids they just leave as-is.
Listen, I hope Tee Hodge balls out and proves my skepticism wrong. I just think Evans has more natural talent than him, and I think most would agree. But like I said, I DO like Hodge's game. I'm surprised he's not rated higher.
