2019 Top 300 Recruit Rankings Mid-Season Update
CFB Today Top 300 FB Recruits
There are 28 sub-categories that are used to find the average score for each of our 8 categories that are weighted by the % you see above each box above, on our main 8 major categories. Click the boxes to learn more about our algorithm that is based off of reality and not the "magical star system", that leaves players stuck in a swamp of complacency and unable to reach their full potential.
(These facts were based off over 500 sports psychology tests and watching half of the top recruits on major networks drop heavily in production)
Having played with the best recruits in my class at Hargrave Military Academy, I realized it's not all about what we do on the football field. Even though that is the main category we grade, we also look at each recruit's social media accounts, Hudls and get a idea for how the general populous feels about this recruit. We also take into consideration high academics and points are awarded for improving in these areas. This was a baseline test we ran this past spring when we introduced Collegefootballtoday.org. This is our version of 247 sports and it has–in the most humblest way–exploded through the roof with our viewership. I have read every article by SB Nation, Rivals, 247 and ESPN, and given I had stepped away from the mainstream media while building my foundation to be successful, I hadn't realized the hypocrisy that exists in sports today. Plain and simple, if you want to play on this side of football, you must have very tough skin that was developed by well, being an Arena Kicker. In all of football, this has to be the worst job on earth, but we will get to that later. The true test came with academics for me at a young age, I have been wired to run at 110MPH, as was my father David Trout did. I can't sit in an academic atmosphere for very long because of my concussion history and other personally traumatic reasons. I detached myself from almost the entire world as I have learned that their opinions are just their perspective and if our voice was going to be heard, we needed to cancel out theirs. Hence, I have now evaluated more than 22,000 recruits from class of 2019 to the class of 2025, in order to complete our rankings. This was one of the final projects, and we are nearly done putting the final shingles on a very sturdy and well built house. Do we like to add editions and build vacation homes? That is the next phase and I have learned not to release my plans until they are near completion. Why? Because somebody with a lot more resources and no football mind will attempt to copy my work.
2019 Top QB Recruit Rankings
2019 QB Recruits Brenden Taylor & Tanner Rickle have very unique skill-sets
Honestly, as I look at this list, you can win with any of these guys at the next level. That being said, after having extensively researching the ELITE 11 and other networks, that the names we have that are not on those lists are equivalent in talent or better overall. Obviously, the first thing I study is a QB recruits throwing motion and how long it takes him to get the football out of his hand once he makes his decision. I also evaluate basic QB fundamentals, like being able to get through a 1-5 progression and find your check-down receiver, while under duress. How well does a QB recruit bounce back after throwing a interception, as sometimes the ball just hit the receiver perfectly in the hands and suddenly was up in the air for the defense. We take these plays into consideration when looking at stats, as football has many unknown variables that must be accounted for when determining a QB recruits overall outlook at the next level. You will also notice that we do not use HT/WT in our algorithm, because as a believer in "late bloomers" like James Harrisson, you can always progress differently once you are able to "flip your focus" on bettering yourself and finding the your unique daily process.
2019 QB Recruit Tanner Rickle has the best throwing motion in the nation & is partly why he accumulated 1,755 yards and 22 TD's in 5 games
I hear the word "special" thrown around a lot about recruits and to me there is none more special then Tanner Rickle in the Class of 2019. His on the field work, does not reflect who he is inside, as we have been able to see a very clear picture on what we think is going to be one of the best college QB's ever, at whatever level of football he plays at. Being from a small school in a under recruited area is not a easy thing to deal with in College Football Today. Most of these guys wind up going to lower levels and then we see them on Sunday's, as they have the intestinal fortitude to withstand the animosity a top level football player can have dealt to him. They develop thick skin and are able to compete at a level that is unattainable to the "so-called" top recruits in the nation. We began down this road because we want to see young man like Tanner Rickle, who graded out as the TOP overall football player in (B) play at the level he deserves. This was also stated in some letters from IVY league programs and I could see Tanner being another Ryan Fitzpatrick with his immaculate ability to throw his receiver open to a spot. The timing I watch Tanner throw with is second to none and I see the same motion in the best QB's ever to play this game at the highest levels. Fans, coaches, friend and even God, have told me that these Stars are not real and never have been. It was a easy way to get clicks, by finding out who has offered who and then they made a algorithm based off computer generated data that does nothing but confuse even God. Having operated for the past 3 recruiting classes, I realized if the guy I think is the best, is not on these major networks, well, good luck and good ridden because when it all boils down, College Football Today is a business. This is why most recruits do not understand how they can dominate and hear nothing at all from a D1 program. Well, I have probably a novel written about this young man on ScoutTrout.com and the link provided links to his QB database profile, enjoy the show. By the way, this is nothing compared to the NCSA scam, millions fall for every year. They contract with school's who need players. There en-lies the difference in what is real and what is fake, as you were not wanted, but needed to fill a roster.

Top 2019 QB/ATH Brenden Taylor defines what it means to be a versatile fb recruit - we could see him on the Paul Hornung watch-list one day soon!
Top 300 QB Recruit James Pearson & The Hardee Wildcats have now moved to 8-0.
Some of my Quarterbacks just need to fix a few things here or there, but not James Pearson, technically speaking he is one of the most refined passers you will watch on tape. I have been in Pearson's corner since his electric sophomore year and then when he did not get to play much his junior season. Of course I was shocked that what Georgia Tech and I saw one of the top Dual-Threat QB's not starting, we began to ask why? Well, we are not going to get into detail, as I post most of these issues on social media, but whoever his coach was, simply did not want Pearson to attain the super star status that he has the potential to grasp. Well, Mr. Pearson made a very wise decision and moved James to Hardee HS, FL and they beat his former team this season. But did this young man do what 99% of young men that are considered TOP recruits do today and taunt his former opponent, as they obviously took things personally. The answer will always be no, because James knows what he is working with talent wise and has also been taught to respect others, whether he wants to or not. If you can bench a kid like this, that is now nationally acclaimed, you are the issue and need to be removed from dealing with student-athletes, in my sports psychology opinion. Having studied child psychology, sadly there are still bitter high school coaches out there who have the same mental capacity as a child. You want to win games, make every person on your team better, like I am seeing James Pearson do and my other Elite QB's do everyday. I do not have another job, I realized this was going to take as much time, energy and effort as James Pearson has put in, and I am glad I was right.
This was my Introduction To The Best Football Rating System Ever Created - We will be in Lincoln,NE For the Huskers Game with some old friends from the Nebraska Danger!
Special thanks to Joe Mazour for supporting me as an athlete and always making me realize how good I really was. #SupperKicker - need more fans like the Cornhusker Nation!
We will be going through the 2019 Top 300 and position groups and explaining mostly all of the Top 300 recruits, as we move closer to national signing day.
We will continue to refine our algorithm with individuals who have valid input, as this must be perfected over and over again. We will be using a slightly different version for 2019 NFL Draft Prospects. and holding regional camps/combines with Scout Trout Elite LLC to help recruits achieve better overall S.T.E.P Ratings, such as teaching the Scout Trout perfect 40 yard dash start and other combine techniques that top performers in the NFL Draft use. Jimmy Bates actually pointed that out to me after he ran a 4.47,40 yard dash 3 times on tape.
Any attempts to replicate the S.T.E.P ratings algorithm in ANY form or fashion will be dealt with swiftly by our attorneys.
