I've really enjoyed looking through these. Gives the recruiting rankings a lot more meaning.
Good stuff, LWS, thanks. Also check out the industry-generated 247Composite ranking for that year:

thanks Chad. How are you doing with the new gig? Like being home, right? :)
I've not checked out the "composites" before. What makes them up??
Thanks, doing good. The 247Composite rankings are essentially made up of the rankings of all of the major recruiting services. Right now we have composite ratings going back to the 2002 class and for every prospect back to 2010 and will fill out the rest of classes. The 247Sports team rankings use 247Composite player ratings. Here's some more details and links to composite rankings for each class...
The 247Composite Rating is a proprietary algorithm that compiles prospect "rankings" and "ratings" listed in the public domain by the major media recruiting services. It converts average industry ranks and ratings into a linear composite index capping at 1.0000, which indicates a consensus No. 1 prospect across all services.
The 247Composite Rating is the industry's most comprehensive and unbiased prospect ranking and is also used to generate 247Sports Team Recruiting Rankings.
All major media services share an equal percentage in the 247Composite Rating.
The composite index equally weights this percentage among the services that participate in a ranking for that specific prospect.
A composite strength meter, indicated by red bars, illustrates the total number of industry services that have ranked the prospect. A full strength meter indicates the prospect has been ranked by all industry services participating in the composite.
All industry services have a different philosophy on number of "stars" distributed with each class. The 247Composite Rating assigns stars based on an approximate average distribution of stars from the industry.

Just shows how much coaching goes into player development. Alabama has had very few busts over the Saban era, whereas we have been riddled by them. These lists are great. Players must be pushed to be their best, or else they will be in the real world before they know it.
I just clicked on the 2002 class just to give it a try and I think we missed on everyone of our offensive lineman that year.
thank you. I'll have to do some digging into this stuff.... looks really interesting...
You'll love it, LWS. Chad and crew have been doing serious work getting the composites figure out all the way back to 02. Great job by him and his guys.
Your team. All the time.
