I don’t ever remember beating out a list of schools like, FSU, OSU, Nebraska, etc.  Anyone else remember us ever winning a recruiting battle like that?

So FSU and OSU offered him in 2014. His crystal ball prediction to FSU was also made in 2014. I'm going to guess he didn't have a committable offer anymore to FSU, but his last three offers were Vandy, Indiana and GT so no slouch by any means and probably our best HS recruit in the past few years. Great pickup

Thanks for the clarification. Nonetheless, great get.

This is great news. We should have a nice stable of backs now. Alce, White, and Hayes-Patrick were all 3* recruits. I've kind of felt O-line has been the issue the past few years as anyone we had back there trying to carry didn't have much success. Hopefully we see some improvements on the o-line to open up some running lanes.

We are finally going to have a running game. Heck of a get.

 

I'm not worried about the OLine. The Browns had a trash OLine until the system changed from Haley/Hue to Kitchens. I think the same thing will happen here with the coaching & system change.

former commit:

 

 

I was hoping we could keep him. I wonder if he's a non-qualifier being that he waited so late in the process to decommit and say he isn't signing on NSD? He had other offers and plenty of time to open his recruitment.

This commitment does seem to be a great get. My only concern was his 4.8 speed in the 40. We have had a history of backs who had no breakaway speed. I hope that's not the case here. I also echo the others posting who feel we will be better because of the OC change, the OL coach change and the new signings. Our running game looks like it is rising from the ashes.

The amount of preferred walk-ons is interesting. I wonder if part of Arth's plan is to use his connections in NEO to bring in kids who are driven, hungry, etc., in order to push the scholarship players to be better, disciplined, etc. Not sure if I'm reading WAY too much into them, but I'm not sure I have ever seen this many PWOs announced.

We lost out on DT Jamykal Neal to Houston.

We need some last minute D linemen, hopefully both ends and tackles.  Finish strong coach.

I like it.  Building relationships w/in NEO.

It wouldn't surprise me if we're saving a scholarship or two and letting these pwo know they will have an opportunity to earn it in camp.
