Can someone please explain the difference between the two? I've been searching 247sports for a couple of days now and I can't find an explanation.
October 12, 2013. PSU 43 - UM 40 (4 OT). Unfortunately this fan wasn't around long enough to see it!
247Sports rating is simply what the analysts here rate them as prospects.
The Composite is a calculated rating based on what all four major sites rate them (ESPN, 247, Scout, Rivals). Someone at 247 finds all the ratings on those sites and inputs them into some sort of calculation. I believe the highest possible value is 1.000 (consensus #1 overall recruit).
247 is 247's rating
Composite is the average rating of 247, Rivals, Scout and ESPN
“If you remember me, then I don't care if everyone else forgets.” ― Haruki Murakami
The 247Sports rating is 247's official ratings and rankings for each player. The Composite ratings take 247, ESPN, Scout and Rivals ratings and combines them. You will also see 4 little boxes next to the composite rating which will be highlighted red depending on how many sources the composite rating is drawing from (3 red boxes means three sources).
I hope that helps.
Thank You gentlemen for your 4 very fast responses.
