100% agree Saul. The only 2 flips of our ~10 decommits that make any sense to me whatsoever were Levins to Nevada (close to an undefeated 2010 season and has remained mildly relevant since) (Lake Tahoe close by, argubly one of the 8 national wonders) and Corrales to UNC. The FCS private school flips I'm not ruling out that foul play was involved

Withers literally said in his press conference that:
A. We had a large group of commits early
B. At some point he challenged the coaching staff to UPGRADE the level of the commits, and
C. Although it's not pleasant, some recruit were essentially "pushed" out

Yet you still can't make sense of it....

247 shows 774 instances of a player decommitting from an FBS school this recruiting cycle. It's not exactly uncommon.

Plus, from our end, we are strictly looking at it from a number ratings perspective that someone else came up with along with a highlight video. This is the information that is readily available to us that we are putting blind trust into.

The coaching staff has been watching these guys and visiting with them in person. Highlights videos don't show you the negatives (TJ Bedford's video makes him look like Randy Moss). The staff may have some 2 star player rated as a 3 star and a 3 star rated as a 2 star. I'm sure they have their own unique grading system.

Maybe not grading system but definitely ranking by position. Go for #1, get a yes from #2, have #3 and #4 ready just in case.

Sure, but to be able to say who is #1 and who is #2, you have to have your own evaluation system.

Aledo TE Logan Peterson has flipped from #TXST to #FAU.



Been extremely busy with lacrosse season starting and haven't had a moment to think or even keep up with signing day. This was the one guy I was afraid would leave. Not that he has great size or speed but because his film impressed me. He seemed like a throwback football player and reminded me of Mayo. I hate to see someone like that leave.

If there's anyone that reminds me of Mayo, it's definitely John Brannon

Right? By contrast, MBB's Immanuel King is 6'8 and 220 and he looks bulky as hell.

It should be noted that's a 2017 commit. He should be on campus in a few months.

I'm always wary about these guys that sign after NSD. Particularly when its 2.5 months after NSD.

that's why he's in this thread, and not the 2018 thread. :wink:

same, but watch his hudl. he's pretty athletic, can play from multiple positions, catches the ball out away from his body, seems to like contact and can find bodies in space pretty well. he might not be an all-conference guy, but he doesn't look like a wasted scholly and we've got him for 2yrs.
