This quantitative study analyzes the efficiency of website rankings given to elite male high school student athletes. The intention of this project is to analyze and assess the importance that high school rankings have on the actual production of NCAA Division I basketball players and success of the teams for which these student athletes play. This project will examine the correlation between the rankings given to prospective student athletes by three major recruiting websites and how well the student athletes produce athletically during their college career. With the increasing importance of winning placed on competitive athletic programs, institutions and athletic departments seek ways to ensure athletic success. The need to select the best possible recruit to capitalize on team outcome has led to a growing movement to measure the efficiency of players. This study will help athletic programs and institutions gain a better understanding of the value or utility of the rankings given to men’s basketball high school recruits.
