Will you be hiring more analyst for P12 and especially Midwest regions anytime soon? Was really disappointed for your lack of coverage in both areas this year. If our commits weren't from FL or TX they got 0 eyes on them during actual games. I see staff from UF, LSU, and FSU going out every Friday and watching games and giving live updates. Know how many times that happened on our board, not once. Just going to use 2 players as examples here Steven Elmer will be the 1. Kid was top 10 player in you're initial rankings before dropping into the 200's. Steven began his slide after having a bad outing in Indianapolis I believe, no pads. Then camped in Illinois and earned invite to The Opening where from most accounts he handled himself well. Had 0 reports from actual game this year, why is that? The 2 kid I'm going to mention is Jaylon Smith a kid ranked in 247's top 10 all season. How many times do you think you had eyes on him during the season? Unless I missed it, which I doubt, the answer is 0. I would think that a kid with a lofty ranking such as Jaylon would get at least one lookover. Wiltfong does an excellent job, but he's only 1 man. Do you see this changing next year or should we expect the same? If your strategy is too build excitement for the UA, AA, and Sempe-Fi games you've achieved that, but your coverage during the actual season needs to be fixed. Also when can we expect to see players rankings as the season moves along added to the players TL?
Prepare for permaban and chastising.
I love the question, but you gone.
Gone for asking a legit question, who's the oppressor on this?
Is this a joke? You are going to criticize our coverage because you are a huge fan of your team and think we are undervaluing your players. Well guess what, we aren't. Elmer's high ranking to start with was a bad call and we corrected it. We think his current ranking may even be too high.
We are at games every Friday night across the country and we are miles ahead of anyone else as far as ranking prospects correctly over two classes. Why in the world would we waste a trip to see a kid that we know is a five star and a top 10 player.
I think you are pretty clueless about our entire process and your agenda is only to see Notre Dame recruits ranked ridiculously high. There are people out there that do that. You aren't getting it from us.

None of your questions are legit because your assumptions aren't accurate and you are totally clueless about the rankings process. You never ask any legitimate questions, only whine here and on Twitter about why Notre Dame commits aren't ranked higher and I am sick of it. I am all for legitimate criticism and would be fine if you'd debate players, but you are debating the process? Really? With our track record?
Again, it's an absolute joke.
Star69... Go to Rivals or Scout and see how they do it.. Then you will realize that 247 covers the midwest, and every other region, 50x more and better than any other site. I see midwest updates DAILY.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
I used two players as examples, sorry I know ND recruits better than other teams. I'm such a homer I think you guys have Jacob Matuska overrated at 4* TE, especially since he's coming to ND as a DL and deserves to be in 3* range. No need to get defensive, JC. Like I said Wiltfong does an excellent job, but he's only 1 man. How many other regional recruiters hit the Midwest or west coast this year? I'd be willing to bet the majority of your top 10 kids had eyes on them this year. I'm not expecting you change any players rankings, just see that areas of the country are in need of more legs on the ground. I'm sure I'm not the only paying cutomer that feels this way. No need to get upset,
Again, I don't mind questions, but these aren't questions. These are accusations and insulting criticisms of our process based on your uninformed opinion.
JC ... you clearly don't get it. You are supposed to have a small army of people just covering ND prospects. It's frickin' ND after all. Get with the program. ND invented football and is the only school anyone cares about. It's really the only school all the top prospects want to go to anyway. Why are you even wasting time and money covering any school other than ND? In fact, if you had half a clue, you would change the name of this site to 247ND. WTF are you thinking?

247/365ND should be more accurate. You guys get a day off once every four years.
It sure is good to have the Domers back. Been a while since we could enjoy misguided arrogance....awesome!!
Leap Year IMO
This. I have been on every site out there and this one has the best rankings by far. They take tremendous pride in their rankings here and it shows.

Love the site, love the analysts. The national guys drop info on little old Nebraska. Something Rivals NEVER did.
1st of all star69 just got owned. 2nd of all jc is prolly the biggest nd/Midwest hater I've ever seen
Put the hammer down JC.
Yeah I can see why you would say something like that... Because 247 has you rated a 1*
$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
While I disagree on the way it was stated, Steve as the only person to cover the entire midwest is pretty thin. Hopefully as membership grows someone can get added.
Wiltfong does an outstanding job. Gerry gets involved also. IMO 247 should add Bill Kurelic to the roster. He is THE guy when it comes to big 5 Midwest. Ask Steve.....
