    According to 247 he has 35 offers. He just finished his junior year. Cutting out 20 schools at this point and coming up with a Top 15 to give those schools more attention and a visit isn't a crazy thing. I'm sure he will cut it down again and again to get to his Top 5 or whatever.
    I DON'T POST A LOT AROUND HERE...BUT WHEN I DO, IT'S USUALLY NON-VALUE ADDED.

      Yea I agree with this. Before blowing up the kid had really only been to Rutgers a bunch of times and nowhere else. Then he went to Penn State this spring. So I think this visit tour with his parents is crucial in figuring out where he really wants to go. So far he has a visit schedule of...

      6/5 Texas A&M
      6/7 Syracuse
      6/9 Penn State
      6/11 Virginia
      6/12 Duke
      6/15 Notre Dame

      He is supposed to do an 8 school tour in the course of 3 weeks so idk what is left, but it looks like the kid is going to see a lot schools and it makes sense for him to cut his list so the 35 offers aren't keeping him up day and night with phone calls and recruiting.

        If thatís the competition for (what I assume is) a high-academics kid where hometown/distance probably isnt a big factor, I like our chances.

              If youíre referring to ND. He made his visit this weekend with his parents.

              6/15 Notre Dame
              6/18 Michigan

              Most of these schools are getting 1 day visits which is great but ND was able to get him on campus for a full OV which is definitely a plus. Penn State has gotten him on campus multiple times so interesting for Wiltfong to hear ND, Michigan, TAMU.

                ND was the first school his parents visited with him too right?
                What did Davonte do?

                  No his parents have been around. I donít know specifically which visits they were on with him but theyíve definitely been on a few before ND. Maybe even all of them with him, but Iím not sure. I think I like NDís chances though.

                          Exactly...we typically don't get guys who list their "Top 15"

                              Yeah. This is a kid who basically just started the process, not a camp jockey whoís been being recruited for two years. Also, in reality, that looks like a top five with a bunch of regional and high-academic hats on the table out of courtesy.

                                Once you remove the "look at me, I'm smart" schools, we're basically talking about a top ten, which isn't that bad this far out.

                                      If you have a top-15 then you really haven't narrowed it down. Like at all.

                                        I think this is coming from a kid whoís got 35 offers and is totally getting bombarded with recruiting because of the fact that his parents are in town, heís visiting a bunch of schools right now, and is a big time talent that is blowing up. So I think the idea is that heís visited Virginia, Penn State, Rutgers, Boston College, Syracuse, Michigan, Notre Dame, Duke, and Texas A&M so far, and will visit Ohio State and Cal in the coming days which leaves Nebraska, Penn, Harvard, and Clemson as the schools he hasnít visited but wants to hear more from. I think he wants to hear more from the schools heís been to now and then during the month long dead period before he narrows down to the school he wants or couple of schools he wants to potentially go to. In my opinion, heís playing the perfect game in recruiting right now. That being said, with all those high academic offers I sure do hope he ends up at a Notre Dame, Michigan, Duke, Virginia, Boston College or Cal where he can play power 5 football and get a great education.

                                                      Michiganís 2019 recruiting class is contingent on September 1 & November 24th of this year. Michigan goes on the road to face ND & Ohio State. If Harbaugh loses both of those games this class could be open season for other schools to poach.

                                                          Good thing he took that time to make a top 15 list just 7 days ago.

                                                            I don’t quite understand what Ojabo and DiCosmo - seemingly-academically-inclined defensive linemen from neutral territory in NJ - see in Michigan, as compared to Notre Dame, that has them visit both and then immediately commit to Michigan.
                                                            Anyone?

Then he can make the right decision. Itís unfortunate that between 8-48 hours (OV to ND) at each school is all heíll have to make a decision on where he should be for the next 4-5 years of his life.

Yes, seems like he and his family are new to the process but you wish someone - a HS coach - would prevail on him to take his time.

                                                                                Yea there are plenty of guys whoíve gone through their recruitment with a lot of strategy and an even head about things. For example, Dallas Gant didnít choose Notre Dame but the kid took multiple visits to Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan State and realized that ND & Ohio State were the final 2 and then decided after another few visits that Ohio State was the right place for him. Jaylon Smith took multiple visits to Notre Dame, Ohio State and Purdue before realizing that ND was the place for him. Having gone through a recruitment of my own when I was in high school I can tell you that kids should definitely try and visit a school multiple times if they have the means to do so because they always see something new or hang out with someone new at the schools they visit and the fluff and fake things fade away and you see the school and coaching staff for what itís really worth. I think if you have an offer from Michigan, Notre Dame, Cal-Berkeley, Boston College, Vanderbilt, and Virginia then you owe it to yourself to get the full experience at the schools of those academic standards. Heíll do fine at Michigan, but Iíd recommend taking in a game atmosphere in the fall at each of his final 5

And like it or not, scUM is on the up and ranked well in the pre season poles. Hope we demolish them...

                                                                                            I'm assuming, because of the athleticism, they're (and we) looking at him maybe as a WDE instead of SDE? Do we know what he wants? Do we know what ND and scUM think in terms of position? Could be he wants to be slotted as WDE over SDE. We have NaNa, who is much more of a proven commodity at WDE. Perhaps scUM is selling they are pairing him with their stud SDE Hinton?

                                                                                            Regardless, his film didn't blow me away. He's a project, so I'd expect him to sit at ND unless he polishes up a lot this year. Sitting 2 years is probably the best move for him regardless of where he ends up. Maybe situational year 2. I wanted him bad because of the athleticism and pass rush potential, but we've had freak athletes before that didn't pan out. Not going to get to bummed.

Do we know what he wants? Do we know what ND and scUM think in terms of position? Could be he wants to be slotted as WDE over SDE. We have NaNa, who is much more of a proven commodity at WDE. Perhaps scUM is selling they are pairing him with their stud SDE Hinton?

                                                                                              Regardless, his film didn't blow me away. He's a project, so I'd expect him to sit at ND unless he polishes up a lot this year. Sitting 2 years is probably the best move for him regardless of where he ends up. Maybe situational year 2. I wanted him bad because of the athleticism and pass rush potential, but we've had freak athletes before that didn't pan out. Not going to get to bummed.

This is a prospect who admittedly has no idea what heís doing on a football field. Huge upside because of athletic ability but heís not even remotely close to ready to compete at this time.
