RPM was released to the public in December. The On3 engineering group teamed up with Spiny.ai to create the industry’s first algorithm and machine learning-based product to predict where athletes will attend college.
It factors in machine learning, social sentiment, visits and historical trends. However, expert predictions are still a big piece of the RPM equation.

LSU’s 2024 recruiting class contains eight players. They include Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian Academy four-star quarterback Colin Hurley, Bellaire (Texas) Shadow Creek four-star safety Maurice Williams and Loganville (Ga.) Grayson four-star athlete Joseph Stone.
Thompson has an On3 NIL Valuation of $9K. The On3 NIL Valuation is the industry’s leading index that sets high school and college athletes’ projected annual value (PAV). The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
