    I just noticed that Kyle Rudolph is #102 on ESPN 150 and is their #7 TE. Interesting.

    ------Yeah I don't even look at their rankings. Only when they released them the for the first time I did. When they dropped Jimmy to #9 last year and made the top 3, 3 USC guys I stopped paying attention.

    OK, my two Jersey boys, time for another lesson from your IUB.;)

    How many times have I said not to look at any of these recruiting rankings in a vacuum. Yes, ESPN may be the hardest to figure at times, but they all have their own quirks. Overall, ESPN actually tends to rate the ND recruiting class higher than the other 4 boards. They did last year, and so far this year thay have the ND class as a whole rated higher than either Scout or Rivals, both of whom currently rank the ND class #1. Once the Rise rankings are published we will have a consensus ranking system in place for you that will balance out the quirks and biases in each of the 5 boards as well as toss in a little bit of our own evaluation. Look for that before the end of the month, and then you will not need to check out any of the links above.:D

    FYI- despite ESPN's #102 ranking for Kyle, he will still be easily the consensus #1 Tight End in the GH rankings.

    IUB I never said the ESPN rankings were never good to ND, but dropping Jimmy to #9 and having Golden as like I think the 12th best prospect in the country was a little hard for me to grasp.

    Several ND commits do better on ESPN than on one or both of Rivals and Scout. I was just surprised by the ranking for Kyle, since the other sites rave about him and put him at #1 at his position. Coincidentally, Jonathan Baldwin is ESPN's #1 TE.

    When we do our rankings, players will be assigned to their likely positions in college, Baldwin as a WR, Blanton as a CB, etc.

    Tom Lemming on (apparently uncommitted) Kyle Rudolph:

    Exceptionally athletic for position, reminds of Notre Dame's John Carrolson

    WOWEE!! We already have a Rudolphish player on the roster? I can't wait to see this Carrolson guy in action (this year maybe?).

    Is the Rise magazine about high school football ? Never heard of them before. Also do any of you guys ever read the sporting news high school rankings when they come out?
