Not sure who you are referring to, I hope we get Key and every other recruit we target. Big lead with a recruit doesn't mean much at this point. If telling the truth about a players recruiting process is negative, so be it. Some people can't handle the truth.

Last year we had big leads with several kids that aren't here. We ended up with some very good players not even on the radar at this point last year. This year will be difficult with the lack of depth of talent in state.

Our junior day in late March will really help as well.

Just to be clear, it's a long, long, way to go for other schools as well.

Late March? Why is ours in late March when some schools are already having theirs?

[quote=GarnetSwarm1990;4089433]It's still early in the evaluation process for these guys. This summer a lot will change. It could end up being a good year for SC recruits. It's still up in the air.[/QUOTE

Top recruits are committing earlier in the process than ever before though. Now its all about securing a spot and only then weighing their other options. I agree its a little early to be too uneasy but some concern is warranted. It would be nice to see our overall recruiting strategy be a little more aggressive in my opinion.

because that's when our coaches scheduled it, I thought I heard we were having a small junior day in early march but nothing concrete definitely a big one on March 29th though

There is no problem with his "frame." That term is wrongly used in sports a lot.

Hopefully it means we are fighting back. If other teams are going to go after our commitments we have to be willing to go after theirs.
