RE: Early Signing Period
McFadden is a really exciting recruit to me. 6'4" fast Wr from Pahokee. I'm surprised the big schools weren't going after him. A few years ago ESPN ran a piece on "Muck City" Florida which includes Pahokee and two other highschools. It's a really small poor area that cranks out an absurd amount of NFL players. The football success is largely attributed to the fact that kids grow up catching rabbits with their bare hands in the sugar cane fields to sell at the market. Here's the ESPN piece if anyone is interested.

I remember that. What a great story. I was also surprised McFadden didn't have any other offers. I watched his highlights and the big issue I saw was that he often went down easily after initial contact. But with his height and athleticism I figured someone else would have taken a flier on him.

I believe that number included Julian Sams who we already had on the unofficial commit list.

That would be great if Wyatt Rector committed to KSU yesterday or today, but I haven't seen that. His Twitter feed shows he visits KSU and took pictures while on the visit.

I haven't seen anything confirming Rector either. FWIW 247sports has him as a lock for us though.

He's actually predicted to WMU. Looks like the prediction flipped last night.

RE: Early Signing Period
Not surprising on Rector. He decomitted because he didn't want to compete with a higher ranked QB at Virginia. So why would he want to come here and risk sitting behind Barrett for three years if he can't beat him out? I was looking forward to all the "Rector? D@mn near killed her!" Jokes that could be made...

I don't know that it's a done deal. There could be a lot more flipping between now and NSD.

RE: Early Signing Period
Picked up a commitment from Daniel Johnson, TE from powerhouse Catholic Central in London, ON. 247sports.com has him incorrectly listed as being from Springfield Catholic Central in OH. At 6"6', 255 lbs, he looks on film like a very good blocking TE, but also has soft hands and is hard to take down.

Per Twitter, Rector committed to WMU, not KSU this evening.

That's too bad. It'll be interesting ro see how the careers of Rector and Barrett play out.

RE: Early Signing Period
Maybe I just missed the news, but is the new coach bringing in anyone who can play this season, like Glen Mason brought in Patrick Young?

I would expect Woody Barrett to start at QB.

But history says he'll be down for the count by Game 4 unless they get some stud offensive linemen ...........

A lot of that came from the game plan. No one thought that Holley could withstand the punishment of being 75 percent of the offense for an entire year. Face it, or coaching staff was not very good.

It was a little of Column A and a little of Column B. So far we only have 1 OL in tbe new class but still several scholarships to fill.

RE: Early Signing Period
I am sure there are a lot of good D1 linemen available 5 days out. Maybe we can sign a few that have already committed to Ashland. No wait, they win there. What about Hiram?

Not everyone commits early. We have at least 7 offers out to OLs that haven't committed yet.

4 more commitments this weekend:

Dual-threat QB Marquez Glover. 33 TDs/5 INTs his senior year. Also added 7 rushing TDs.

TE Mark Williams, Ashburn, VA.

Jack Halper, Chicago, highly rated as a long-snapper.

Added a DT Sunday morning though it hasn't been announced publicly.
