Heh. You say this as if Dymonte Thomas is NOT a "big time elite safety." If he wasn't he wouldn't be ranked where he is.
Not interested in probabilities. Thomas is the higher ranked RIGHT NOW on what has been the most accurate recruiting service, and a tick below on the other.
That does not equate to - RIGHT NOW - an inferior prospect as was indicated earlier. As or RIGHT NOW, Thomas is ranked as the 8th best safety in the US on RIvals; Bell, 19th. Dude said Bell was the superior prospect (and was seemingly implying "far superior") and the most accurate recruiting services do not support that.
That was my only point.

Manboobs for everyone!!!
Are you sure about that?
Bax weighs in on the chance for intrigue before the ink is dry ...
Actually, I'm saying this as if I expect Vonn Bell to become a unanimous 5-star safety recruit, which I don't think will be true of Thomas.
As of right now, Rivals' ranking is ludicrous. 247, the site who's analysis you pay for, has Bell as the second best safety. ESPN has Bell as the fifth best safety, Scout has him as the third best safety.
Rivals has Bell a half dozen spots behind Jayme Thompson, so I'm betting their safety rankings get a huge revision.
All of the good Rivals analysis that made Rivals so accurate for so long, are now on 24/7...
Go Blue and Go Titans!
wow, that was hilarious.
Interesting. I didn't realize a lot of the 24/7 evaluators came from Rivals. Do you mind elaborating, blue2468? Thanks much

Yep, the creator of this website was the one that originally created Rivals back when they first started up, but he ended up selling it to Yahoo! a few years ago. After a while, he wanted to create a new company and ended up poaching a lot of the major sites from Rivals (such as BamaOnline and many others) as well as taking a majority of their top analysis ts as well to create this site.
I really want to bump that as soon as he enrolls early
Do it. Be that guy.

Thanks. Its amazing I've spent so much time on this site without really knowing its history!
Or just bump it with that tweet about him beating up Dunn because of his OSU gear...
Have Ace Williams do it.
There's a nice article about the creator and how he started this all. If I decide to find it, I'll link it.
I think all of us should go invade that thread when he officially enrolls. I'm bookmarking it.
Cool. Thank you, kind sir.
here you go man.
Can't, it's a thread on the Front Row and only BN subscribers can post on that board (and mods of course).
hey that's me!
Thanks. Its not pulling up on my droid for some reason but i did find a good article on the history and evolution of rivals, scout and 247the over on benkoo.com that is worth checking out. Thanks
Hey that PA RB named his final 6 and OSU isn't in it. Ill remind you he's the Buckeye lean they wanted after Derrick Green "stalled on committing" and OsU had a better option in Williams
David Williams maybe?
