Well, it's a head scratcher to say the least that other major programs are looking at his transcripts and offering him on the spot, but we're looking at his transcripts......and looking.......and looking......and looking......

Its a head-scratcher because you're not in the same room as them.

Don't know what's head scratching about it. Those teams have done precisely the same thing at this point as USC has done. He has an offer from USC & has for awhile. USC is simply determining if they can take his commitment given his projected grade situation. IF a JUCO doesn't have the grades to qualify then the offer is worthless to both the school & the recruit.

I really hope this kid's transcript checks out. He's a difference maker in the middle.

Well we had offered Durant out of high school....and reaffirmed the offer in early March, before his transcripts were ready. I understood that the offer was dependent on his grades being in order.

I was responding to the above post which implied that other programs had reviewed his transcripts recently, and offered him based on that (MWard's post). If the transcripts weren't above-board, then why offer him? If they are - for those other schools - then why the hangup with us? Was all I was saying....

He grew up a mich fan, they offered, so now they lead. When Hoke wins 7-8 games this coming season and people start talking about firing him, we'll see if Tate still wants to go there.

Think his ratings will improve as the year goes on?

definitely looks to be much more advanced in run blocking than pass blocking.

Rated 24th at his position. UNC seems to want him at center and he sounds open to the idea. Could be a versatile O-Lineman for us if we can snag him

I don't think he's rating will improve unless some bigger name schools offer.
Don't forget, we didn't offer till Bryce King announced he was transferring. Maybe that was
a coincidence, but I don't believe that.

4. Dante Sawyer North Gwinnett
8. DJ Smith Walton
11.Wesley Green M. L. King
14. Bryson Allen-Williams Cedar Grove
18. Terry Googer Woodward Academy
5 of the top 18. Congrats to our recruiters, especially Whammy. Of course this was preseason and some on the list played up and some played down. Two of those playing up were Nate Brown listed as 68. He played into the top 5 during the season. Another was Nick Chubb listed as 10. I'd take Chubb over Lorenzo Carter who was 1 any day of the week.
