I hear Texas is over rated, no clue who's underrated.
Alabama may be slightly underrated, considering I feel most years we have like 10 top 247 prospects including 1-2 5*s.
NJ is underrated
^^^^ this but Don Bosco certainly helps
Honestly, I was going to say Pennsylvania is underrated. The B1G has been feasting off PA recruits for years. In the last couple years Michigan alone has taken Pat Kugler and Chase Winovich.
The division that Don Bosco plays in is just absurd.
Don Bosco, Bergen Catholic, Paramus Catholic, St. Peter's Prep, etc.
Practically every powerhouse school in NJ plays in that one division of the private school league.
Texas isn't overrated. The school in austin just can't develop any talent worth a damn.
Miami does a good job cherry picking NJ now that AG is at the helm
California is overrated. Just look at Cali QB's.
If it weren't for the fact that this is a major down year for Don Bosco, I'd expect Miami to have landed at least one Don Bosco kid.
We have AQM coming in for 2013 but i'm not sure if we have any offers out to DB for the 2014 class.
Agreed. Rodgers, Brady, and Kaepernick are soft as baby dodoo.
Dudes just flat out get their tits lit in the playoffs.
Texas but only at the top in most years. The elite kids in the state are usually maxed out and mostly developed because of the extra emphasis placed on preparedness in the state. It's a state where a lot of under the radar kids can be found though.
Florida-the Florida speed angle is drastically overrated. I do think a lot of the kids there are hungrier than in other states because of the economic issues in the areas a lot of the kids come from. Again as with Texas, a lot of under the radar kids can be found in the state but the overall emphasis put on FL kids is overrated imo. ESPN is especially bad with this. You'd think FL is the only state that plays HS football when looking at their rankings. Lots of academic and off field issues with FL kids. Also many of them are very unreliable during the recruiting process. I rarely even pay attention to kids LSU recruits in FL until signing day approaches.
California-I just think there are a lot of soft kids in California. You see it all throughout the Pac 12. There's a reason the powers of CA recruiting(USC, Oregon, Stanford) do so much recruiting outside of CA. It's not for lack of talent but because those kids out there don't have that extra motivation as a whole like southern kids do.
Louisiana-247 is the only site that thoroughly evaluates LA. It's a state that puts out 50+ D1 kids every year and always has some kids come from out of nowhere and blow up(Morris Claiborne). I do think sometimes the top kids are overrated by sites but the overall depth of talent is underrated
New Jersey-look at all the NFL guys that are from NJ
North Carolina-pumping out more andmore kids yearly especially on the DL.
look at the NFL and pro bowl rosters if you think Florida is overrated.
Pennsylvania is weird. I would say our highly rated recruits each year tend to be OVER rated, but the state overall is UNDER rated. Some of that has been just really bad evaluators on recruiting sites. Bob L and Farrell have just been abysmal (for different reasons) for years.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
So the top three NFL producing states are overrated
