Ask Iowa about their highly ranked 2005 recruiting class with all the stars in front of their names and all the premier schools that wanted those players. It didn't amount to crap!!!!
I love those sites like CR and the former CN, but one thing they can't measure is heart & desire. Just keep that in mind whenever signing day comes around. We don't know jack**** until those players hit the field against the opposition.
Its all about probability. There will always be 2-star guys going on to be studs and 4-star guys going on to be duds, but the chance to get a special player does increase with the amount of "stars" or whatever that are acclimated to them. We just need to get lucky on some of these guys....we'll be alright.
I find it interesting that the local televison stations, local newspapers, local radio stations routinely report a new recruit the same day it was premium info. So CSTV did the same as the local boys.
When a recruit verbals, does CR, local TV, local radio, local newspapers call up Gene and group or do they send emails out or does CR let the others know? Just curious.
In Omaha, the radio stations even go to school press conferences to hear whom the recruits choose. It has become a bnoteriety circus. Remember PAllen and all his fake moves on signng for baskeball? He enjoyed the attention apparently.
One NU coach, Eckel, wore a Will Compton tatoo on Monday to try to recruit him. Will recommitted.
Anybody see a faster Carper in him? Nose for the ball, good in pass coverage, similar size and athleticism......
This is an article that was in the Palm Beach Post on Saturday. Please take a second to read it.....it is the announcement of his commitment and his comments about the school and town:
