Rivals has updated Cole to a 2 Star 5.4 rating.

Here's their numeric ratings to date. The numeric ratings are what drives their team ratings because of their 'point' system. This is a very low start.

Luke Benson - NR
Adrian Cole - 5.4
Cornelius Nunn - 5.7
Anthony Red - 5.3
Joe Rondi - 5.5
Courtney Jackson - 5.4

6.1 = Five-star prospect
6.0-5.8 = Four-star prospect
5.7-5.5 = Three-star prospect
5.2-5.4 = Two-star prospect

Rivals Rating = Points
6.1 = 150 points
6.0 = 135 points
5.9 = 120 points
5.8 = 105 points
5.7 = 90 points
5.6 = 75 points
5.5 = 60 points
5.4 = 45 points
5.3 = 30 points
5.2 = 15 points

Bonus Points are awarded for being in the Top250

Put me in the "Rivals doesn't have a strong Syracuse subscription presence, so they don't do our recruits any favors" camp.

That said, this class is mostly made up of kids with camp offers, so I will take that over deciding the differences between a 5.4 and a 5.7

rivals is terrible. They dont go back and evaluate. They get real lazy after the initial ratings are given. Only time they bump some one is when a fan base of the site complain or a kid eventually gets big offers/ commit to a big school. Our recruiting isnt the greatest right now but no way Jackson is a 2 star. He's a 5.6 3 star IMO. I would also argue for Cole to be a 3 star. He has 4 P5 offers.

Exactly what happens. There is like zero SU posters on that site and the mods do very little. rutgers fans cry about their commits rankings all the time.

Heads up on Rivals. They've entered our 2 Canadians into the DB. Neither has a rating yet. I noticed they gave the Rutgers' Swedish kid a 3 star so I'll be REALLY curious to see the Canadian ratings. There's no doubt in my mind the LB should be a HIGH 3 Star.

All of these recruiting services are crap shoots to some degree, but Rivals is the equivalent of Lindy's magazine.
It seems 2/47 has hired a lot of the Rivals guys...at the least the ones that I would follow.
