If we made a radar chart (which I might at some point) on all of the skills that Watson possessed and what that allowed the Clemson offense to utilize, it’d be rather revealing. The Clemson co-coordinators on offense were often labelled as “geniuses” but when your QB is a brilliant runner that can run the … [Read more…]
I think most people at this point have determined that it’s best to tune out K-State’s recruiting class rankings and just wait and see what Bill Snyder makes of his players after they arrive on campus. This 2017 class ranked 60th nationally and 9th in the Big 12 in 247’s composite rankings which would suggest a … [Read more…]
The 247 composite rankings didn’t think too much of this West Virginia recruiting class (57th nationally, 8th in the B12), but there are a few missing components that have to be considered which may make future WVU rosters better than expected.

Before we begin, take time to check out my post on … [Read more…]
I’m slowly starting to begin my breakdowns of every 2017 Big 12 recruiting class. Normally I haven’t even begun it yet so we’re ahead of schedule so far. There’s often a lot of late movement and additions but JUCO signing day is over and early enrollees are increasingly prevalent so many teams have already made … [Read more…]
