Recruit Oklahoma Is Going To Make A Joke Out Of Ranking Student Athletes

basketball courtRecruit Oklahoma will be releasing their Top 50 players in Oklahoma in the Class of 2013. This is not a ranking, just a list of 50 best in the state.

Rankings, in my opinion, are worthless because it doesn’t give a true value of what the student athlete can do. Recruit Oklahoma, I’m sure, really means well but you mean to tell me that the 51 players in the state are not that good?

There are many players that go unranked every year but still end up having incredible athletic careers after high school on into college and some, if lucky, will make it to the pros.

I guess that someone has to create rankings to create conversation, but it does not tell the whole story of what a high school student athlete can really do.

I am the editor and chief genius at Woods Recruiting. I blog about the college recruiting process where I provide my opinion on the process along with detailed strategies on how to make the recruiting process work for student athletes and their parents. I also write blog posts to help college recruiting services and scouts to navigate through the challenges they face on a daily basis.
