Are these days gone? Let's talk recruiting.

The ink has barely dried on the 2013 recruiting cycle. We may or may not add a couple to that class. The 2014 offers have already begun as have some 2015 offers.

I keep a spreadsheet on those who have been offered as well as those who may become targets. This is a difficult task because the different recruiting services are not consistent with one another. It becomes confusing to say the least. ESPN doesn’t put out ratings until later on, but they have their Watch List until they do their ratings. Rivals probably does the best job on ratings, but there are inaccuracies.

They do, however, make an attempt to provide the name of the recruiter for each offer. Scout has fallen off in quality of information since Dave Telep left for ESPN. They’ve become very slow in updating their data base. They are more conservative in their ratings. Their site is easy to maneuver. 247 Sports has the largest data base and they provide the date of an offer. I also look at MaxPreps which is the most conservative of all in ratings and they tend to put out names you’ll never hear about on their list of top players. Coaches, I’ve been told use ratings services that aren’t available to the public and they, of course, do their own evaluations.

What I am attempting to do with this post, is to give you, the reader, the most comprehensive information available by putting together all the information from the above mentioned services. This will come in two parts. The first deals with Joker Phillips offers.

There are several players where I was unable to determine an offer date. In those instances, I read the 247 Sports timelines for each recruit to determine if they could have been offered by Stoops. If the offer wasn’t in the timeline, I had to assume the offer was more than a year old and therefore was a Phillips offer.

Ratings and rankings constantly change, but it is a slower period right now, so the likelihood of significant change is small, except for offers. Some of the following players may have had an offer withdrawn by either regime, but more likely by Stoops. One service will show an offer and another will not show an offer. Anyway, here’s my best effort at giving you as much information as you can find from several sources.

If you have offer dates or who the recruiter may have been on any of the above players, please post your information and where you got it and I will update the information upon verification. A lot of information is on Twitter and Facebook. I don’t participate in either as a matter of keeping my life in the perspective and privacy that I wish to keep. I don't participate in Premium Sites because the information will eventually come out for free.

Tomorrow’s Part Two will show the offers by Stoops and Company.

I hope you enjoy the information.
