Based on what you’ve heard?
No, just my hunch based on following the recruitment.

I have a hard time seeing him saying no to Mamma this early in the recruitment. But, I think towards the end when the money starts getting real, maybe even larger, it could change some things. Or, at least shake things up a bit.

This will be an interesting test case for NIL and star power.

He is mostly a long term development guy it seems and I'm curious with how an A. possibly readjusting NIL market will react to a sandwich eater, + 2. a senior year of film still showing more potential than production will = III. Profit?

Is he really a "long-term" development guy though?

I get that he overwhelms his competition. But this is a guy who a school like Georgia brings in every year, then re-shapes his body a bit and works on pad level and all of a sudden he's a starter on a national championship defense Year 2-3.

The film doesn't scream "all projection" to me. He could be due for a redshirt year, sure, but I don't see this as someone who doesn't start until his junior season. Maybe that's just me.

running the 247 class calculator, Basically going to need either Scott or Rushing for this class to be better than last years at this point. looks like we end up in a similar spot as last without.

Miami is offering to relocate her to South Beach.

With the way rules are now, “staying close to mom” is not really a thing like it used to be.
Programs are giving them “jobs” & providing them with houses, vehicles & a stipend.

While this may be true, Miami is also heavily pushing early playing time. If Leonard Taylor has a good season and goes pro, Scott could see immediate reps; there's not much depth at DT that would be in front of him there.

I understand. I just don’t think that is a decision that gets made now.

That’s likely one that gets made after he’s graduated or set to graduate from HS. But again, that’s JMO.

If Scott commits to Miami or UGA now and ND trades Wafle for Sevillano and then loses Scott. I think that’s quite the blunder. I would assume they’ve been given reason to be optimistic, at this moment in time.

Driskell said on his show that the only people who feel good about ND are ND people.
He said Miami, Michigan & Georgia sources all don’t see ND even in Scott’s top 2 anymore.
It’s bizarre how the ND staff feels one way & everyone else feels the opposite.

Maybe, but Scott's camp must be feeding the staff something to keep them interested. One would think the staff would have learned their lesson with the 2 from last year. Who knows some habits die hard.

Driskell just said he could see Scott committing to Miami over the summer. Driskell and Shaun Davis both think he will end up signing with a Midwest school though. Driskell also thinks Michigan is ahead of ND right now.

That's fair.

For now, I'll trust that the staff has read this one right and lands his verbal commitment. If not, like I mentioned, it's quite the blunder and we can chase that rabbit then.

I continue to think the money will matter later. We'll see.

If he goes to Miami, fine. Money & south beach won out.
If he goes to UGA, fine. Money & 2-time defending champs won out.
But Michigan? That would be the ultimate donkey punch while getting bent over.
Cannot lose him to a Midwest team who also isn’t offering insane amounts of money.

If Scott is asking them for money then they probably think nd doesn’t have a shot…. Maybe nd has a new better plan to counter? Don’t know. It will be telling if we land him or don’t come close to landing him, meaning we aren’t even recruiting him 6 months from now say like keeley.

Minus the safety position, every positions here on out have top of the board targets, that are all in the Top 200/250.

K Young, Nelson, lambert, Brix, Cole, KVA, Scott, Rushing, M. Williams, Beasley.

The current class is missing a lot of beef in that Top 100 to 250 range as we’ve seen in the last two classes, but ND will get their guys. Also, certain players like Cole Mullins will finish much higher than where they are ranked currently.

I’ll go on record and say that if ND gets 80% of their top remaining targets, they’ll finish Top 8. If they get them all, they will finish Top 6.

I’m fine with grabbing him as a transfer when Miami goes 5-7 and he doesn’t get as much NIL as he was promised.

Weird to see Miami go the A&M route with NIL

Many, many years ago Miami football was all about high paid (under the table) "thugs" ... slime-ball Jimmy Johnson made sure of that!

If he is taking the normal Miami football classes, it will be tough to get him transferred over through ND admissions.

1 of them is not like the rest of them. We all have been right and wrong in recruiting world as have the “experts”. You tell us to watch his actions and they don’t say ND.

Which one is “night like the rest”? You are saying one of those 5 schools plays more night games than the others and that’s the school he is going to? The school that plays the games a night.

Sorry bud. I had to bust your balls on this one

Miami? The only school of that list to - hasn't played in their conference championship game (remember when ND did that), hasn't been to the playoffs, has two losing seasons out the past 5, three head coaches in 5 years.

Miami was in the ACC championship game in 2017.

They got obliterated by Clemson.

Miami? They're the one that's bad at football but is in a fancy place and is writing big checks and hooking up moms with jobs.
Georgia? They're the one that actually wins nattys and stacks up NFL defensive linemen but also where he probably doesn't see the field for a few years.
Ohio State? They're the one if you want to go three-and-out and win most but not quite all your games.
Michigan? They're the ones who suck.
