National Signing Day: Bengals Ratings

Today is National Signing Day, when many high school athletes across the country officially announce where they intend to continue their athletic careers.

George Iloka shared with Bengals.com back in 2015 that the art of rating High School athletes isn't an exact science.  Even though he ended up being listed as a two-star recruit, Iloka shared that he did not have any stars next to his name until he decided to sign with Boise State:  "There are some good scouts in there, but when you're in high school they base it off stats, height, weight your 40 (yard dash). I actually had no stars.*"

The Bengals roster contains players that run the complete spectrum of no-star recruits, to the much coveted five-star variety.  Below lists the current Bengals roster and what we found on Rivals.com as their high school ratings.   *
