Your point about stars being added based on someone committing to a big school is spot on. I notice that as well. And it isn't always any big BCS school, often just the typical football elite. But sometimes just looking at the offer list should tell you what how many stars they should have as enough recruiters with strong player evaluation reputations have evaluated that player and given them an offer.
Stars and rankings are not an exact science by any means, and there are always good players who are underanked or unranked and fall through the cracks and highly ranked players who bust, but a pretty good correlation across a large sample for future player and team success.
I think more players in the west tend to fall through than in the east + Texas.
@Hasbro - Te'o really has. He needs to stand out in something so people quit bringing up the imaginary GF thing. Instead he keeps having disappointment after disappointment.
