Rivals formula for how they figure recruiting class points
« on: February 05, 2009, 06:57:40 am »

I've seen a bunch of questions on this over the days and honestly, I had never seen it laid out completely. There national recruiting folks provided the formula they use for every team to determine their recruiting rankings yesterday:

Quote
The formula Bobby posted early was accurate. This formula hasn't changed in several years, since it was modified to correct the high ranking of huge (40+) classes of lower ranked players.

The confusion arose from the statement preceding the formula:

    Please note you only take the top 20 prospects in this formula, ordered by # Stars descending

We should have sent Bobby the following clarification instead:

    For purposes of calculating the H and L values (star points), you should only use the top 20 prospects, ordered by # Stars descending. For purposes of calculating the N value (ranking points), use the entire class.

Obviously, many on this board and other boards have already figured this out, but we wanted to post this for clarification.


POINTS = ((N / (N + 50)) * H) + ((50 / (N + 50)) * L)

where...

H = 250 for each 5-star commit + 140 for each 4-star + 75 for each 3-star + 20 for each 2-star + 10 for each 1-star

L = 18 for each 5-star + 12 for each 4-star + 8 for each 3-star + 3 for each 2-star + 1 for each 1-star

N = a big honkin' calculation, described below

CALCULATION OF N:
10 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (high school) ranked 1-10
9 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (high school) ranked 11-20
etc. down to...
1 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (high school) ranked 91-100

10 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (non-high school) ranked 1-10
9 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (non-high school) ranked 11-20
etc. down to...
6 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (non-high school) ranked 41-50

24 for each commit ranked #1 on his official position ranking
18 for each commit ranked #2-5 on his official position ranking
8 for each commit ranked 6-X on his official position ranking, where X is dependent on detail position, as listed below...

--Dual-threat QB: 25
--Pro-style QB: 25
--Running Back: 35
--All-Purpose Back: 15
--Fullback: 15
--Wide Receiver: 50
--Tight End: 20
--Offensive Tackle: 40
--Offensive Guard: 30
--Offensive Center: 10
--Defensive Tackle: 50
--Weakside Defensive End: 20
--Strongside Defensive End: 30
--Inside Linebacker: 35
--Outside Linebacker: 35
--Cornerback: 40
--Safety: 30
--Athlete: 25
--Kicker: (no points awarded for rank lower than 5th)

If the team's average stars are greater than 3, add (100 * (Avg stars -
> 3)) to N.

You need to program that into a computer. Too many calculations to do by hand.
