RE: 2017 Football Recruiting
Interesting that TyRae Thornton, Rice's first 2017 commit, attends Cypress Ridge. That is the same school as two of Rice's 2016 commits, D'Angelo Ellis and Dasharm Newsome (both CB's). I imagine the coaching staff got a ton of looks at him when they were checking out Ellis and Newsome. Apparently his committment shouldn't be a complete surprise since he hinted at it a few months ago.

Is he a commit, or has he just been offered a scholarship? I hope we got him. He looks like a good player, and he has been "offered" by Duke and Kansas State as well.

Awesome!

Might have to start calling us Corner Back U.

With the last 3 years of recruiting, looks like we are really trying to address the secondary problem. We need that disruptive pass rush however to ensure that growth and success is forthcoming.

We definitely need jt. With a new coach in 2017, this will help get the ball rolling faster

Of note however, is that he level of interest is " cool, low, and medium" perthe recruiting sites. Makes me wonder if they can keep him if he gets other offers.
