Last night we released our new 247Sports Player Database. We've been working on the backend for several months, but the last couple weeks we turned our attention to the actual DB products and the look and feel. We have so many new innovations in this database and several more enhancements should launch throughout the remainder of the year.
First, we are introducing Phase 1.0 of Timeline. Timeline gives us an opportunity to provide a quick snapshot of a player (recruiting and prospect). For example, unofficial visits, big games, accolades, commitments, etc. The Timeline gives users a chronological look at what is going on with the recruit. Also, this feature is tied to Twitter and will soon be tied to a AUC/247 team based site feed that will appear on the front page of the site as well as other areas. There are many enhancements to the Timeline product ... this is just the first phase.
We've also added a new look and feel for easy navigation. Check out the rankings module at the top. This was important because we rank so many more prospects than the other services. For example, we've ranked 281 players from the state of Florida, 124 from Georgia, 63 from Louisiana. Also ... we've already ranked much of the class of 2013. No service has ever ranked juniors this early and we already have a complete top 247 and most every state initially ranked.
There are many other cool features like a player photo gallery. We provide candid photos of players throughout their career. In time, we will have 100s or 1000s of pics of prospects as they progress their career. We also have the players Twitter feed (be careful -- mostly for entertainment) and there's other sections coming soon such as scouting and news feeds. Also, 247Sports provides a deeper layer of detail with player interest. We name a player's "favorite" and use "warmer" to denote head to head recruiting battles.
Finally, what really makes the 247Sports Player Database special is that it is the industry's first fully integrated preps to pros database. This isn't a big deal right now, but in a few years all of a player's information from their early high school careers through college will be archived in one easy to navigate area and the Timeline will tie everything together.
There's a lot more coming, so stay tuned and thanks so much for your support.
