It would be interesting to apply a quantitative heuristic to each player's college performance, to assess the star rating (on the basis of contribution), retrospectively.

Off the top of my head... A five star player would be a player that was a significant contributor (based on either snap counts or statistics) in his first season and achieved first team all-conference status in his career. A four star player would be a significant contributor by his second season and earning any all-conference mention. A three star player is a college starter (or has starter snap counts) by his third season. A two star player is a career rotational player / fourth year starter, while a walk-on is a non-specialist special teams contributor.

That's actually something I have planned to do later this offseason. Likely won't touch on players still on the roster, but will analyze previous classes.

Based on the caliber of player he had the potential to be he was a bust IMO. He had a legit chance to be a first round pick if he had played at Clemson this year, but that didn't happen and now he's a practice squad player.

Did Korie Rogers transfer? I thought he left football altogether and is now just a student.

He transferred schools and is not playing football, yes.

I see what you mean just a bust in my mind is a player 4 or 5 star or some even 3 star like Justin Parker who play very little and either quit or transfer out or ride the bench for 5 years (Martin Aiken) I just think he had 2 good years of playing LT came in the LSU game and held his own for the most part I thought. He was the #36 OT by rivals & #59 OT by ESPN we can agree to disagree good sir, but you did have some other crazy bust I forgot about like Townsend, Davis, Bellemy, Parker, and one you could add was Willy Korn he was a huge bust in my mind.

Demare Kitt, despite him being a transfer, imo he was highly touted along with Scott to be a good tandem and then just gives up because he didn't get to play his first year..
