If this guy is a three-star running back, I'd hate to see what a four-star back looks like. I would love to see him in a Monarch uniform.

No double dip for ODU in the Bentley gene pool. Jake Bentley committed to South Carolina today. No surprise, as Bobby Bentley was hired as the RB coach there in January.

Its probably best he didn't pick us based on our team/ offense needing a mobile QBs. His knees have been blown out twice already.

I mean, this board would probably implode if another Bentley came on board. It'd be akin to if Snowden had a younger brother and he committed to the Monarchs. Total chaos.

No, it's not a good thing. Hes the 6th rated pro style QB in the nation and has offers from anywhere you could possibly look including Bama. We all knew he was going to USC because of his Dad, but it most certainly isnt best that he didn't pick us. We don't need mobile QBs, we just need good ones.

A mobile QB in the spread is the best option for us. There is a difference in a mobile vs dual threat QB. A mobile QB in the spread can move side to side to extend plays down the field.

When it comes to commits I'm learning to never trust anything west of my left hand. See you on the field/court, till then who knows.

Could it potentially be the lack of commitment from ODU when it comes to COA?

It certainly would be a factor if my kid was being recruited.

I don't even know why kids call it a verbal commitment anymore. Why not just say, "yeah, I think I'll probably go there". There is no commitment at all to these commitments. Heck, as we just learned with Tre Evans, even a signed national letter of intent doesn't mean jack.

RE: 2017 Old Dominion Football Recruiting Den
I'm not a fan of COA. Let's be honest, 'recruits' that come from well to do homes don't really consider the inconsequential amounts that COA's provide when making their decision on which 'school' to attend. It's a moot point as regards ODU since we will soon be offering COA's. Thus begins the endless cycle of increases that the P5 schools will demand from and receive approval for from the NCAA. Players whom we recruit from lower socio economic households will on the margin consider COA's in making their decisions but I truly don't think it will make a big difference in improving the percentage of verbal decommits. What we are dealing with here are inmature 17 and 18 year olds. I will wager that a high percentage of the 'verbal commits' that we've lost turn out to be busts at the schools that they finally end up at. I base this on the reports that we receive when those recruits drop out or are released from the schools that they end up attending. I'm all for deleting the 'verbal commit' process. We're stuck with COA's. I'd rather see COA's based on academic performance and see them paid to the athletes at the end of each season once the athlete has fulfilled his/her commitment for the season completed.
