Agree completely...It's also why I don't really judge a player by his composite ranking...It takes into account Scout & ESPN.
If your bored, go look at what ESPN had Tavon rated coming out & their report on him...Hilarious.
It wasnt just ESPN .. Alot of people had some reservations about him because of the lack of compition he faced in high school .. We can say its halerious now looking back but he was a hard worker and proved those doubts that alot of people had wrong
Man we needed this, too excited!
TOS's all had him as a high 4* & at one time, a 5*.
ESPN had him as 76 I think?
He was one of the most highly recruited kids on the east coast.
247 without a doubt has the best team of national analysts. This cannot be refuted seeing how Shannon Terry pretty much took all of Rivals, Scout, and ESPN's best national analysts when he created 247. Nobody messes with Shannon when it comes to recruiting. He won big when he created Rivals, and he is winning now that he created 247sports.
BTW, Hyman is a beast.
This is my first an only membership to a site. ESPN was the only thing I followed before this site an there is no comparision! Have you settled in from the move MM?

After 8 years on the beaches of NC, I am back in Parkersburg. The move isn't entirely complete yet, but its getting there
I must have missed that you were moving. Congrats on that & perhaps we can finally get that EerSports tailgate going that we talked about this fall!
follow me on twitter @gwinnUSAF77
Heck of a time to move back, staring out the window at the snow in Vienna now
From parkersburg as well...welcome home
Yep. I'm here oj 7th street by the Kroger with my grandparents right now. Wife is still in NC with my parents because she has a pretty good job right now. She will be up here soon. We are looking at a house in Mineral Wells.

Haven't heard that term since I graduated in 2004. Its strange having been gone for so long and then coming back. I get the feeling my plaid shorts, flip flops, and tropical pink shirt just won't fly up here around all this camo
I grew up n mineral wells....livin on swann street now...n the ghetto lol
I hope to come back at some point. Probably not for a while though. Did you get a job in PKB or moving first then looking?
Public Debt would be the prize right now in Parkersburg. I read a couple months ago they will be expanding their workforce and moving the rest of their jobs to parkersburg but I am not sure when that is supposed to happen or if it already did.
Might want to try Blue Cross/Blue Shield as well, I know they have hired quite a few in the past 3/4 years
Coldwater Creek Distribution Center is a good place look as well. They will start you off small but could move up the latter.
Also the Oil and Gas industry seems booming there

If not Public Debt, then Def Oil and gas industry. It is only going to get bigger.
O actually did the troops to roughnecks program and got my oil rig certification. Haven't had any luck getting on anywhere in that field either.
Just be patient. The drilling boom is expanding from NC WV and Western PA into SE Ohio, just south of Cambridge all along the river. Most companies are doing a bunch of exploratory drilling, but as soon as they can verify good results then there will be thousands of jobs. Its tough to find a job the normal way in O&G because most companies are based out of the Midwest or the North, so applying online or through corporate rarely works. Most of the work is subcontracted so the jobs are actually through the smaller Oilfield Services companies, not the big companies that are paying for the construction. I work for one of the bigger companies and when it comes to drilling and pipelining, I would say for every 1 company job there are 40-50 contract employees. Look at companies like Halliburton, Schlumberger, BJ Services, Eagle Oilfield, etc... Actually they have job fairs where they hire on the spot occasionally. Usually advertised on the radio.
They have the helmets to hard hats program also, I found it very successful when I got out of the corps
