The #5 ranking has Milton in it I believe.

From what I read this week it isn't out of the realm of possibility that Marquavius Lewis pulls the trigger this weekend. That would launch us up more spots too.

Also have Redmond, Hatton, and Key likely to decide within the month.

No one knows...it's a great mystery. One would think that Jared's offer is not commitable at this time, and therefore his commitment to USC is not fully accepted by USC, but if it was the case, GCC who has contacts within the USC staff wouldn't include him on the commitment list all this time. But the other services have been withholding adding him to theirs. And no one ever talks about Washington's situation in the "insider" circles enough to clarify why....


So it's all a big mystery....

As of a couple hours ago his commitment hadn't been factored in. Maybe it has now, but I'm on my phone and for some reason it doesn't show the Rivals ranking on my phone.

Edit: just checked, and we fell just short of fourth.

Nobody knows the real story. One group of insiders thinks he has a commitable offer. One group thinks he doesn't. Coaches CANT say.

We may know more in Aug 1 when official written offers are mailed out.

The player and his dad consider him committed

I think part of the reason he isn't considered a commit by the coaches is because he moved around the last 3 years and played at 3 different hs....he had nothing to do with the moves, it was a family decision. But I think the coaches have had a hard time getting all his grades in order. I don't know this is the reason, but it seems that could be what is causing the problem.....especially sense GCC considers him a commit.

The coaches can't say publicly, where they'd be quoted in the media. Against NCAA rules. A lot of those online recruiting services however establish contacts with the coaches over time, where they can make a phone call and talk "off the record" with the coaches, and get a scoop that they can report as "an insider source", without naming names or quoting quotes. That's not against NCAA rules because that way the NCAA has nothing that they can nail to a coach...

So either the online services aren't asking questions about it - they are asking, but the coaches aren't telling - or the coaches have told them, but for some reason they aren't disclosing the scoop, even as anonymously, for some reason. Like I said, a big mystery.....

Having just watched Highlight videos of both Ty'son Williams and Jordan Scarlett we can't go wrong with either of these guys. They are similar size and skill set. It's hard to tell who truly the better runnin back is as Scarlett probably goes against stiffer competition than Williams. Is there a scenario where we could bring both guys in or is it more likely one or the other?

Considering how much of a need RB is in this class, I could see us taking both. I agree with you on your point of not going wrong with either one, though. Since we go back to a full class this year I would imagine there is room for both.

Yeah since we missed out on Scott for the last class and didn't take any RB, I would think we get 2 for this class if we can, and perhaps redshirt one of them who is the slowest to pick up the playbook....

I don't think we'll be taking 2, but we can tell them first to commit wins....that way we avoid last year's debacle.

IF we could get Two great RBs why would we not take Two since we didn't sign a RB last class. PLUS M Davis may leave early. We have RB depth now, but that could change soon.

Davis WILL leave early. Considering the shelf life and worth of rb's these days he almost has to.
