Why is Hudson Henry not a 5 star recruit???
« on: January 07, 2019, 04:39:28 pm »

The young man is a consensus all-American by two different services. According to who is doing the listing he is the number 1 or 2 linebacker in the nation.

With that can someone please tell me why is he not a 5 star recruit. Would it make a difference it it was Bama, Clemson, Auburn or the like as the school Mr. Henry is attending. Seen this kind of thing over and over again over time and it always irritates. For me it just adds to the thought that the so called unbiased recruiting reporting services are as biased as the come.

Correction by Pigpusher: Yes, but of course I intended to discuss Hudson Henry. I Know the difference and do not understand why I did that. The old F.... slip I guess. Well at least it gave some of you Hogs something to giggle about. That can't too bad.

Exactly!  They don't rank NFL players by giving them stars, unless they play for the Cow pokes.

Assuming you meant Hudson, but TE's are usually valued less than other positions. The bottom of the pecking order usually goes FB, P, K, and then TE. There have only been 2 TE's that have procured a 5-star rating since 2012 in the 247 composite.

I can only assume you're talking about Hudson Henry, who plays TE. And the reason he is not a 5* is because he hasn't really attended many camps. If he had, there would be no doubt he'd be a 5*.

Like one guy said .. they just generally don't give TE's 5 stars also I think he would probably need too be a better blocker too achieve that .. he has been mostly just a big receiver in HS .

Just think with Henry and Burks both being given their respective due by the ranking services, they should have both been 5*.  That would have probably moved our rankings up some don't you think.

lol this is a legit great thread. Suspense, action, comedy, trolling maybe, a family of athletes all playing for the hogs.... I love it. For real though I think Henry and Burks are probably 5* talent. But even if they’re not, the difference between them and a 5th star is pretty small. These 2 are special players.

247 only ranks 32 players as 5 star (1 for each NFL team)

I assume 247 does not feel he is in the top 32 players as TE's are not as valued as other positions.

I would throw centers in to the mix. They are usually cobbled together from spare parts after arriving on campus as a lower tier recruit.

Of course you are correct Tex. From my viewpoint though it is just fun to see us listed with the big boys in the national recruiting rankings. Then too, it can't do anything but help our own recruiting efforts in the meanwhile. The real test, as you state, is what happens on the field. Giggle,,just ask Bama.

This is the ONLY thing that matters.  I get what the OP was driving at (even though his post shanked it into the rough), but the bias isn't against Arkansas as much as it is how the TE position is generally rated.

Bama's best back this year was a 3*, maybe the only 3* on the team, but he was still better than either 5* in terms of actual contribution.

Rivals is extremely biased. I bet the ones ranked ahead of Henry went to a Rivals camp. They always rank the ones that camp with them high.

He was #1 without camping, until today. The UA game/practice was the first time they saw him, which says their ratings are b.s. to begin with.

I totally agree. Just pointing out how they bump up the ratings for kids that camp with them. They have kids rated high 4* while the other services have the same kid as a mid 3*. But said kid camped with Rivals. A current commit of ours is an example of this, but I won’t mention names..

Wilkins is also ranked absurdly high on rivals for this exact same scenario.
