    Additional stat that may or may not be correct:

    I believe this is the first time since I started doing the recruiting that a player who has had a 6 spent on him did not make a list or get sniped.

    At the very least, it's incredibly rare.

    Glad to see you are awake. You wouldn’t believe the amount of times I asked Alexa what time it was in Hawaii. LOL

    I can see it happening occasionally, if two schools are targeting the same player for a snipe, although for no one else to place even a single hour would make this a rare occurrence. In this case, the player (Ryan Danley) would have received a 6, either a 4 or a 5, and nothing else.

    I haven't looked back yet but I'm almost positive that it hasn't happened since I took over in 1982. Usually the 6 that's going for a snipe either gets it or there's like a team that puts in a 4 that blocks it and then a couple of other 1's are thrown on the guy. Very rare to see just two teams go for a guy and go that hard on him without even passing interest from a 3rd team.

    I find it interesting that Richard Martinez had the most schools and most hours but not a single team spent a 6 on him. 15/24 teams spent hours on him but not a single 6. Seems like pretty universal agreement that he is valuable, but not an elite prospect in relation to others in this class.

    I was going to respond to this with a comment about how I really didn't like my list when I made it because I felt like the needs that I *had* to fill for next season were really weak. I put a lot of higher hour slots on outfielders which I wouldn't normally do but I've only got 1 OF that is below JR right now. I also put a 6 on a 3B that I expect to play at 3B which didn't make me feel great.

    Eventually, my brain went on a tangent and I came up with this new recruiting reveal stat.

    Here are the number of players each team spent hours on that were recruited by exactly three schools. I did not remove snipes from this number.

    ARIZ -2 
    ASU 0 
    CAL +5 
    STAN -1 
    UCLA -11
    USC +5 
    ARK 05
    LSU -25
    OKLA +54
    OKST -16
    TAMU 0 
    TEXAS +47
    ALA +41
    CLEM -12
    FLA +32
    FSU 02
    MIA -21
    UNC +41
    MICH +23
    MSU +32
    MINN -22
    ND +12
    OSU +24
    PSU +14

    Exactly three schools? Does this just mean some teams with low numbers targeted more popular guys?

    More or less. Exactly 3 means you definitely got on the list. It doesn't really account for whether the rest of the lists were 4 or more/2 or less.

    Yeah, it's pretty interesting. I don't know what it says about the overall talent per region but if I had to guess it would be that the West has a lot of top heavy talent, the Southeast has slightly less top heavy talent and the South and East have a lot mid tier talent.

    Maybe someone else has a better theory.
