I'd be very very surprised.
Thank you for reading!
Rutgers needs to one, win games, and two, prove they can get NJ players any other P5 program has offered and legitimately pursued.
Countpoint: when there was room for him in the class, he was not ready, and PSU had to keep spots open for other guys they felt good with. Obviously things changed with several spots opening, but it's not like Penn State just avoided him.
There's a difference between pushing for WRs, and staying in touch.
In Webb's case, you absolutely listen when a player like him, from PA, is interested.
Alabama's "oversigning" isn't too different from most programs. Especially with the amount of talent they bring in every year, they are seeing a number of players leave early, or transfer because they gut buried by other great players. Over six years, you only need to lose 4ish players every off season to make signing 25ish/season possible.
I honestly think a big part of it is he doesn't necessarily have a natural position. Khaleke Hudson was hurt in a similar way a year ago. With that said, he's a high three-star on the composite, and Rivals actually has him as a four-star kid.
I honestly get the idea of trying to make this final poll a ranking of the best seasons. I don't agree with the reasoning used in Nathan's case, but I understand it.
Part of this is on the AP for not really defining any type of criteria, so you end up with as many methods as there are voters.
Fortunately, the AP Poll has zero impact on anything relevant.
Just be nice! All four of these guys were more than gracious to share their thoughts with us. Also, Nathan's twitter picture is from the Harbour Town Golf Links and no one that plays golf on Hilton Head is a bad person.
I hope it's a noon kickoff with no special crowd attire, just to screw with them.
Nothing you can't do with a quick Google search for "countdown to date".
Had a friend tell me he really personifies how much fun PSU football is now. Plays hard, but has a personality, and shows it.
If you get a chance to go to the B1G tourney, do it. Last chance to see a great old building in Joe Louis Arena before the new one opens in the fall. Yeah, the crowds will suck, but it's a great place to watch a game.
