SORRY, BUT I HAVE TO CANCEL MY TRIP TO PGH. PA TURNPIKE IS CLOSED AND WE ARE ICED IN DOWN HERE IN MARYLAND… I’ll keep this thread updated with any signing news.
Signing day is upon us. As of 8:30 pm we have 18 3* recruits. Nice and consistent. The race isn’t over until tomorrow evening as, with other LOI Days the faxes stop in early evening.
Be aware though that even though the NCAA allows recruits to wait until April 1st as the final deadline, rarely do any ranked kids wait past the Feb LOI Day because just about every college’s quota is filled by then. Every so often a big 5* recruit will string a couple schools along on an ego trip.
Let’s keep our eyes on two uncommitted recruits:
MYCHALE. SALAHUDDIN, a 4* RB from Washington, DC,. and rated the #5 RB nationally.
These two commits need to sign today:
, a late verbal who is a 3* CB out of Texas and apparently a result of our new DC Randy Bates and:
, a Floridian who plays DE and who is also a 3* recruit with the 2nd most interesting name behind our new WR Shocky Jacques-Louise.
Baldonado will be making his announcement at 10:00 am. Salahuddin will follow suit at 11:00 and as said above we need these two kids, Salahuddin especially if for no other reason that we need to show we can land at least one 4* recruit.
Other than those two the only other name being bandied about is the Preferred walk-on HS QB from Missouri Derek Green.
He is unranked and unrated but Rivals gave him a page anyway. That doesn’t mean we won’t see a newcomer or two on the last minute scene.
All are welcome to the pre-event festivities at Bettie Grill. If I don’t slide down a mountainside while driving the Turnpike I should be there at 4-4:30.
Let’s hope we close this class out with a bang!!
