The other two are Jeff George's son and a wide receiver that has offers from all the top B1G schools. He set and later broke his own school record for yards rushing in a game. Last week he had like 370 yards in the first half against the #2 team from Kentucky. He had 4 carries in the third quarter to get over 400. He's only 5' 6" but he's very strong and fast. He could be a beast at SIU.

    You might be showing us a good example of the subjective nature of this recruiting stuff. Romeir Elliott could be a very productive player for Southern Illinois, perhaps similar to Jalen Bussey (5’ 8” ish) for NDSU. Alot of what HERO is doing is based on the player’s cumulative rating by the recruiting services, and also what school’s have offered. 247 doesn’t show any offers for Elliot, so perhaps that was what kept him off the list.

    Elliott could also be someone who does so well his senior season that his personal ranking is lifted.

    Totally agree that players are ranked by how many offers they have and what schools have offered. I'm pretty sure if a kid holds a UN_ offer their stock plummets. Kidding aside I don't know how else anyone could do it. How many kids get offers just from FCS schools every year? How are you supposed to watch every single kids tape, compare level of play or opponents, etc across the entire nation. It's virtually impossible.

    This is definitely true. Alabama isn't getting 4 and 5 star kids to go there. Kids are getting 4 and 5 star ratings because they are being recruited by Alabama. I think it was Mike Golic who said his son was a 4 star recruit and then committed to ND. There was a recruiting academy set up by one of the rating services and he chose not to attend because he already knew where he was going. After the event he was listed as a 3 star recruit. He hadn't played a down of football but his stock went down only likely due to his lack of attendance. IOW...don't take the ratings or these rankings too seriously. Even if they paint the Bison in a positive light.
