Emmitt Smith is why you never trust recruiting ‘experts’

Running off at the typewriter. …

I wonder what Max Emfinger thinks about Emmitt Smith being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame today?
Emfinger is the reason that even today, two decades after the fact, I still ignore high school recruiting rankings.
You see, back in the day, Emfinger was one of the pioneers of the fledgling recruiting industry — one of the so-called “experts” who ranked the recruits, put out a newsletter, charged a subscription fee and watched the money pour in from the college football recruitniks who just couldn’t get enough of Mad Max’s opinions and analysis.
