    Kyle Kalis at #22 … the highest ranked 4-star.

    We have also offered a lot more than the above list. Not sure if it was designed to be comprehensive.

    If we've offered more than the players listed above, feel free to let me know who they are. I listed all the players from the Rivals 250 who have been offered according to Rivals, plus a few more identified by Scout and ESPN. It's a pretty comprehensive list.

    I'd like to see the amount of committed players who drop, and uncommitted players who rise during the re-ranks in order to test the theory that the recruiting services skew uncommitted prospects towards high rankings in order to draw more readers. That was a long sentence.
