Football recruiting update?

Postby ponyboy » Mon Jun 15, 2020 2:21 pm

I'm not asking for inside info, stuff that can only be obtained behind a paywall or whatever. But what's going on with recruiting right now? Quiet / no contact period I assume.

It's looking like we continue to be the favorite for Savion Byrd. Man, what a great get he would be. What about Wheaton or others? This class is solid right now.

Also, any word on potential transfers? Or is that not to be found out until later?

Went to the recruiting site called "Google"

Just about everywhere on the internet it seems Byrd is likely ours. Maybe Flower Mound DE/OLB Stony Eby, too.

Honestly, I don't think any of it matters right now.

There are going to be schools that handle the Covid thing and BLM well, and others who absolutely fall flat on their face.

Once more schools fall on their face, the musical chairs will start all over again. For example, do you think any Okie State, Ole Miss, or Miss State commits are solid right now? If SMU forces players back too soon and they end up getting sick, our awesome recruiting class is going to get destroyed.

You really think it matters that much? I mean, of course if a school totally screws things up and personally starts 2020 pandemic two, then yes. But really?

Edit: Yes, really. There are two camps out there: 1.COVID-19 is a serious threat to the survival of the human race. People who don't wear masks are worse than scum. Most progressives are in this camp. Driven by a fear that could end up having been the appropriate response. 2.COVID-19 is a bogey no more dangerous than a paper cut, if at all. Regardless, the best way out of this thing is to go through this thing. If that doesn't work, God will preserve our souls in paradise. This describes most conservatives.

Since most players are African American -- and most African Americans are progressive, then yes I guess it does matter.

I realize that you are parodying both positions, and I agree with you that the only way out of this thing is through it. But how painful going through it is, both in terms of health and the economy, has a huge range of possible outcomes.

Wear a mask.

We are in this pandemic for the long haul, so we have to keep going, and there is no reason to panic. I don't live in fear because I take the appropriate precautions. How difficult is it to wear a mask, avoid unnecessary exposure and keeping a safe distance? One extreme is more idiotic than the other, but both extremes are idiotic.
