not much discussion about this potential commit....does anyone have information about him and why larger programs have been hesitant to offer him? Hoping for an overlooked diamond here

I don't care about stars but the offer list is slim so far. Never doubt a Rock Hill DB though. Has anyone on here seen him play that can add some insight?

Maybe it's grades. Which is weird that DBU would be willing to risk a kid with poor grades.

Something weird going on with this one.

He has a 3.7 GPA so it's not a grades issue. We just aren't getting in the 4 and 5 stars top groups. The overall quality of this class is lower than what we've seen recently for a variety of reasons. But I also think our coaches like him because there was virtually no competition to get him and no reason to allow his commitment this early if we didn't like him.

Weird that a school known for DBs with an NFL DB coach as DC can't get some of the best DBs in the country.

Sorry for saying the grades thing. It was the only reason I could come up with for why a top end DB wouldn't have more offers.

Any chance our staff is right about this one, and most of everyone else is just wrong? Or maybe he was a COCKLOCK from a school that has a history of sending us players and other colleges did not want to even bother competing?

Personally evaluated by Hoke. He earned his offer in camp and I'm happy he is on board.

Correct the coaches do like him, he was an in camp offer from Hoke himself. He is 5'10 with a 4.5 40 and currently just shy of 170 so I would think by the time he would be called on to play he would be 185-190 range. Plus if his stats are to believed as accurate he had 70 tackles 5 INTs and 10 PBUs so he can tackle and has ball skills. This may end up being a very underrated signing worst case it keeps the pipeline flowing to the Rock Hill area and I know they have some absolute studs coming up in the 2018 class so any help we can get there is going to be taken. As for his rating and offer list, it isn't what he is rated and has in terms of offers now that matters it is February when it officially counts. Below is an article on him and McCloud, middle of the article has his stats.
