Q: What does HM, MM, LM, D2, JC projected level mean?
A: Each abbreviation stands for the level that each prospect could be a solid contributor. HM=high-major level (Big Ten, ACC, Big East, ACC, Pac-12), MM=mid-major level (Missouri Valley, MAC, Horizon League, A-10), LM=low-major level (Summit League, Ohio Valley, Atlantic Sun), D2=Division 2, NAIA, or high D3 programs, JC=Junior College candidate.
Q: What does a stretch or plus mean like high-major stretch or low-major plus?
A: A stretch is a player that could probably play at that level, but it will be a struggle especially his freshmen and sophomore years. A plus is basically the opposite of that. A low-major plus could probably play at most mid-majors, but he would be an impact player for most low-majors as a freshman.

Q: The system isn’t letting me log-in!
A: Passwords are case-sensitive. Please make sure that the correct letters are capitalized or that you don’t have caps lock on.
Q: Why are some player’s names underlined and some are not?
A: If a player’s name is underlined, that means they have a player profile. If you click on their name, it will take you to their profile.
Q: How do players get player profiles?
A: We aim to have player profiles for every player that we rank. In order to do that though, we must see them multiple times to have enough for a scouting report.
Q: How are rankings determined?
A: Rankings are based off of their college potential. Skill set, athleticism, size, and production against top talent all play a role in rankings. Head to head match-ups against other highly regarded players also play a big role.
Q: How often are rankings updated?
A: Rankings are updated at least every 3 months. Once a player commits to a school, we update that information on the rankings immediately.
