How does Scout come up with the player rankings?
Scout works from the grass roots and then reports up. We have a Team
around the country including local scouts that work smaller areas
that submit their rankings to a regional manager. The regional manager will
compile the rankings from the local scouts in his area then submit his compiled
list to the National Editors. A final conference call between the regional
managers and the national editors results in a compiled list of national
Team Rankings are a math formula that based on a player's rating and his
rankings. 5-Star is a rating, No. 1 quarterback is his ranking.
5 Star = 200 points
4 Star = 120 points
3 Star = 40 points
2 Star = 20 points
The No. 1 player at a position is worth 100 points, counting down to the last
ranked player at his position to 0.
For Example, assuming Scout ranks 100 quarterbacks.
5-Star, No. 1 QB = 300 points
4-Star, No. 10 QB = 210 points
3-Star, No. 50 QB = 90 points
2-Star, No. 75 QB = 45 points
The Team Rankings are compiled of the Top 25 players per class. Some teams will
over-sign, but only 25 count towards the Team Rankings.
