Look at the list above for the top 25. Lots of 4 and 5 star players.
Also 2* players are usually players that have not been formally evaluated i.e. they haven't attended the evaluation camps where the analysts are. Usually if they have they will at least get a 3* ranking.
Star ratings are highly skewed towards the teams they commit to. If you watch them you will see many times when a team like Alabama picks up a 2*, the next update they will jump to a 3 or 4*. Now if that player committed to La Tech, they would stay a 2*. It happens all the time. I have even seen stars decrease when a player commits to a school. The whole stars thing is a sham. From 09-12 nearly the same amount of 2 stars and lower have been drafted in the 1st round as there have been 5*. 3 and 4* dominate drafts because they are players that do typically have more talent than the 2* and there are a huge amount of them out there (about 700-750 per year).
