I don't expect you all to love 247Composite off the bat for one reason: Nebraska takes a hit in rankings if using it. Well, at least from my viewpoint because I go strictly off 247. Huskers Illustrated's Mike Schaefer broke down what 247Composite means for our rankings in this free piece.
Remember: This isn't what 247 Sports thinks. It is a combination of all of the rankings. 247 ranks Banderas as a 93, while the composite is an 89.56. It stands to reason that Scouts' 3* ranking (against 247 and Rivals' 4*) dropped him a bit. The Composite just gives you an idea of where the recruit stands across the board, rather than one place.The 247Composite rankings caused a little shake up in the ratings of Nebraska commits for the 2013 class. The Huskers rank No. 35 in the country with a 247Composite player ranking average of 86.63 and a class value total of 670.75 points.
Under the 247Composite rankings, Nebraska now boasts of seven four-star commits, with the addition of Milton, Wis., defensive end A.J. Natter. Conversely, linebackers like Marcus Newby and Josh Banderasdropped more than a 100 spots when looking through the composite rankings.
The order of Nebraska’s commits is quite different under the 247Composite rankings. Youngstown Cardinal Mooney athlete Marcus McWilson now holds the highest ranking and is followed by defensive end Christian Lacouture.
