As many have you seen over the last two plus years, 247Sports is trying to stay one step ahead of the industry with our platform and features.
Last year we were the first to provide an industry generated rating and ranking composite (247Composite) that ranks prospects well into the 1000s. And with that release, we were able to release an industry generated team recruiting ranking (247Composite Team Recruiting Ranking), giving users the most unbiased team ranking to date.
Within the next few weeks, we are going to be launching another phase of our player database with a handful of new features for you to enjoy. Here’s a sneak peek at two of them.
Ratings and Rankings History
Users will now be able to follow from start to finish the ratings and rankings for each prospect. The product shows both ratings and rankings from 247Sports (our team of national analysts) and 247Composite (industry-generated). Users can compare the two and see the progress of a recruit from the time he’s been entered into our database until he signs with a school.
This feature allows the entire 247Sports network of national and team reporters to put their reputations on the line and predict where prospects are going to school. It also records the date. We are going to open this feature up to other recruiting analysts too. Any recruiting report from a major media company (competing networks, papers, sports media) can also predict destinations. The Crystal Ball will give individual predictions and a prediction from a group of analysts. In the future, users will be allowed to participate in the prediction process.
Following this release, we'll be moving our effort toward message boards, interaction and mobile.

Cool updates. It's like having FOS fearless forecast being constantly updated.
Any update on the proposed changes to allow VIP access to other boards?
Does laschout.com count for the crystal ball?
We haven't made a final decision on what direction to go with the boards, but any change will probably not happen until after we re-write the message board code.
