How does this class compare? And a couple other notes

A couple  more notes before calling it a night:

— The Yahoo.com article tonight that said this will be UW’s highest-rated class raised some questions. Indeed, that’s not quite true. Maybe the author just looked at the data bases of the two main recruiting sites, Scout.com and Rivals.com. If you look at those, it’s essentially true. Here are the rankings for UW’s class going back to 2002 for Scout.com  and Rivals.com.

2013 — Scout 11, Rivals 15 (as of Tuesday night)

2012 — Scout 22, Rivals 20

2011 — Scout 22, Rivals 23

2010 — Scout 11, Rivals 28

2009 — Scout 66, Rivals 68

2008 — Scout 14, Rivals 24

2007 — Scout 29, Rivals 36

2006 — Scout 35, Rivals 35

2005 — Scout 55, Rivals 66

2004 — Scout 22, Rivals 19

2003 — Scout 18, Rivals 23

2002 — Scout 23, Rivals 19

So yes, this year’s class could be basically a consensus highest-rated since 2002.

But earlier classes, in the days before Scout and Rivals, ranked higher, such as 2001 (which was as high as No. 5 by SuperPrep) and 1991 (No. 4 by SuperPrep).

And obviously, the rating for this year’s class could change a bit. Once the dust fully settles we can examine the ratings more deeply.

— Here’s an updated report that Tyree and Tyrell Robinson will make their announcement at 6:45 a.m.:

— Lineman Maurice Swain of LaGrange, Ga., who visited UW last month along with Reuben Foster, will reportedly announce tomorrow morning, though it sounds like Indiana may be the favorite:
