RE: Football Signing Day Part Deux
SMU's class will be small in numbers, but the average rating per recruit will look much better. Dykes already has 2 kids committed that are higher rated than anyone Morris got in three years, and he has a change at 2 more that would be higher than any Morris recruit.

that maybe true, but it looks like morris really had an eye for underrated talent since you've had 4 (maybe more) decommits since the coaching change who then committed to some big programs. i think that's a better reflection of recruiting than what these amateurs at rivals, 247, etc think.

UCF will probably add one more and put us 3rd overall in the conference and the 2nd highest average rating behind Cinci (247 ratings).

Will be a small class compared to the rest of the conference but the average recruit rating will be top 2-3 on both 247 and rivals.

Digging a little deeper, Cincinnati could have the five highest rated players in the conference by Wednesday evening if Tavion Thomas and Leonard Taylor commit.

Jairus Brents: 4* DB, #230 overall
Leonard Taylor: 4* ATH (TE/DE/OL), #289 overall
Tavion Thomas: 4* RB, #300 overall (former Oklahoma verbal who is between OU, Ohio State, Tennessee, and UC but apparently a UC lean)

I'm loving this early signing period...it allows for our staff to really zero in on a few hats and try to pull out some rabbits.

As it stands, if we do get two of these three, we'll be #1 AAC, #1 non-P5, and somewhere in the high 40's to low 50's overall. And that's after a 4-8 year...

I love it, too. Also let’s us focus on 2019 instead of playing catch up after working full time until February to defend a class from being poached by P5 programs.

Hopefully Thomas and Taylor land with UC but I worry about things that can happen the night before signing that LOI. Watch out for UL on all the kids we are still in on.

We've lost 5 players since the Morris departure that subsequently signed/committed to P5 programs and have added 2 since the Dykes hire that have strong P5 offers. SMU should be able to add a couple more tomorrow that have several strong P5 offers.

Games are won and lost in the trenches (and the QB position). Gotta have those good big men to really compete.

Not to brag, our mean average recruit, is better than UConn's and Tulsa's best recruit. If we sign Taylor and Thomas, it may also include Memphis, Navy and Temple.
