I doubt highly that anyone can pay for a Star. However, I know for a fact its parents and players that report "offers". And that they are not verified. Many play the social media hype game and inflate their rankings. Interest is not an offer. A letter is not an offer. And there are players that commit early, and colleges will not "offer" unless they have a shot of getting the player. If the player is loyal and not playing the game, they will not receive the offers that another "game" playing player will receive. HYPE

Id look at strength of conference, stats (which also isn't always verified) Film

'Able Beach' has it exactly right ! Recruiting Services are in the $$ business for themselves, hs coaches, camps, etc. They will market genuine 4/5 star athletes, they know will be signed for no subscription charge, just to pump their listings. It's common to find average or marginal athletes hyped with offers, unofficial visits, manufactured data. Depending on the service, I've heard a third star can be had for around $300-$500. A way to rank recruiting classes might be to only count the 4/5 star athletes but even that is 'dreamers expectation'.
