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 descendingWe 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-starL = 18 for each 5-star + 12 for each 4-star + 8 for each 3-star + 3 for each 2-star + 1 for each 1-starN = a big honkin' calculation, described belowCALCULATION OF N:10 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (high school) ranked 1-109 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (high school) ranked 11-20etc. down to...1 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (high school) ranked 91-10010 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (non-high school) ranked 1-109 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (non-high school) ranked 11-20etc. down to...6 for each commit on the Rivals 100 (non-high school) ranked 41-5024 for each commit ranked #1 on his official position ranking18 for each commit ranked #2-5 on his official position ranking8 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.
