    • The source that provided all the names to BGI requested that they take down all of the non-committed players apparently. So that list is no longer available and II is going through and putting there own together. Doesn't look anything like the initial report from BGI but thanks for posting those as they come out. FWIW, the original post by Loy on BGI had to have around 50+ names.

          And had you not been lazy, we would all have that list right now...

              • Diaco visiting Blacknall, Holley, Trumbetti, and Hayes.
                Martin: Kizer, Weishar, Morgan
                Alford: Holmes, McKenzie, Bo, and Yeargin III
                Denbrock: Dickerson, Adoree, and Juju
                Heistand: Bars and Nelson
                Elliot: Bonner, Lazard, and Elam
                Cooks: Blankenship, Watkins, and Hendrix
                Booker: Carter, A.Williams, and Schultz

                This is still only part of the list and they are only able to post the names once they have confirmed with the player.

                    • A lot of the names that were omitted weren't really surprising names. Lot were 2015 guys in typical recruiting areas for us like New Jersey or Fort Lauderdale.

                            Can't believe we only have 7 players in top 247 and none in top 50...

                            Corey Holmes, Yeargin, Mustipher all on the outside now.

                                  He should land that at each recruit's school.

                                    Its probably because he hasn't played much this year due to injury but I completely agree. It still blows my mind that Yeargin isn't getting a bump. He is having a great start to the season, I expected a move up for sure. How is he not in the top 247?

                                      Yeah it's things like that which mitigate my concern over where recruits are ranked. I look at guys like Dickerson and Yeargin III on film and they pop. My eyes tell me these guys are studs, especially considering both their competition. I trust that over what these 'analysts' say who make a living off hits on their site.

                                      On the flip side, I do think Mustipher is a bit overrated in some places right now, and Kizer's ranking is based on pure potential and his leadership abilities. He is not a great QB right now, but has all the tools to become one.

                                        TJ gushed over Dickerson when he committed. The staff loves what they think he can become in the middle of the D.

                                          I'm with TJ then. I think he is going to be one of the best in the class, regardless of his rank. Severely underrated in my eyes.

                                            Just what the doctor ordered. Would be a great compliment to Elam.

                                            • Here is my take on player rankings and the effects of early offers. So much of recruiting depends on player evaluation. The recent climate with high school football players is more about getting the "early" offer from schools. So much so that a school that "gets' in late" compared to other schools could have a negative impact on their chance of securing the player's commitment. Strange to me but so many players give that as the reason for their commitments.

                                              This rush to get in early probably leads to a lot of poor evaluation of overall talent and how that particular player may fit your needs. That's one reason why I think we are seeing an increase in highly ranked players being average college players and on the opposite end seeing a two star become a really good player.

                                              I would suggest not being worried about rankings and be more concerned about how that player fits our system, does their build, athleticism fit what we want, what is their competitive attitude on and off the field, etc. If they fit all those and are only a two or three star then who cares.

                                                  Think we have no shot for either Elam or Frazier. With OJ Smith already committed I would expect him to be initially slotted at NG.

                                                                      Comment

                                                                        C'yontai Lewis is cousins with Bo Scarbrough so that explains the interest there. I like Weishar more as a TE than him. At 6'5" 215 he could grow into a CAT or DOG.

Besides, not sure I would call scoring a touchdown when your teammate makes the play a highlight. Hopefully the kid gets a shot at playing at the college level, but high level division 1 is probably not in his future.

Kyle Allen was days away from visiting ND and cancelled to commit to A&M. Andrew Williams has "planned" about a hundred return visits to ND since his last one and not made them.

                                                                                                      It's probably incorrect but my logic is that his logic would be as much as ISU is part of his life past and present that no matter how good he is, is that he's not going to make the difference the but could be a significant at ND.

                                                                                                      That and the fact the season for ISU has been horrendous and that the coaching staff may survive this season but how much longer can they survive being this bad?

                                                                                                      So my logic of what his logic would be to drop the program that he's grown up a part of for ND is that he's coming to the conclusion while the staff is there now very likely won't be there for much longer.
