National Average Rating

The National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a Inside Pack Sports rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the Inside Pack Sports Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide Inside Pack Sports readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

Staff Predictions

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is NC State and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with NC State and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
