There are some some things in recruiting that are considered fairly unanimous. But most of the time, evaluators look very differently at prospects. On3’s Industry Comparison tool makes it possible to see how the four major recruiting media companies — On3247SportsESPN and Rivals — view each top recruit.

The On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies, does a great job of showing the general feeling of a player across the industry.

But there are always outliers in the 2023 On300 ranking from the consensus. Below are some top recruits that On3’s national rankings team is higher on than the other recruiting networks using the Industry Comparison.
