The dominos are still falling and the stars always aren’t the stars.
Three kids I know of this year:
1) Not on LU’s radar though he had decent grades and chatted with other PL teams. Not that highly rated, but a CAA team picked him up.
2) Relatively highly rated athlete who started only one year in HS. Good student looked at by PL did not sign on signing day. Could have signed with FCS school, but held out for a MAC offer. Still not signed, but close.
3) Specialist recruited by a top academic FBS school, then told the school had selected a specialist. So this kid dropped to nearly signing with a D-II school. As of signing day, the FBS school’s No. 1 pick changed his mind and the other specialist was called back for an offer — but after signing day.
There’s a trickle-down effect.
