Rankings, rankings, rankings

Rivals.com and 247Sports.com, in conjunction with PrepStars.com, released their finalized class of 2011 rankings on Wednesday.

Opinions vary on the order of players inside the top 10. The players, however, don’t vary that much from the full-time rankers.

Rivals.com went with Austin Rivers (Duke) as the top player while 247Sports/Prep Stars went with Anthony Davis (Kentucky).

Jerry Meyer explains why the Rivals team went with Rivers and how the rest of the top 150 played out.

Rob Harrington, one of the best in the basketball recruiting business, anchors the new rankings for 247Sports. Prep Stars will provide rankings content to the start-up site.

247Sports was formed by the brain trust that started Rivals.com many moons ago. Full disclosure, I worked for Rivals.com for several years.

Scout.com released their final top 100 rankings on Tuesday. They released their top 30 team rankings this week, too.

I will be compiling my top 10 team rankings for 2011 as well as compiling all of the rankings from all of the services for a consensus ranking in the near future.
