Well, Luke Armstrong should be a valuable addition to his college’s Beer-Bike team, given his lineage.

Unfortunately not. Coach Bloom banned the team from participating in Beer Bike.

I see a lot of Colorado kids being offered. It would be great if it were an indication that a MWC invite is on the horizon. Not probable, but fun to speculate.

It looks like a big group from Colorado came down for Junior Day together. Have we offered everyone at junior day? Not much info on most of those kids, but it looks like Mike Kershaw is their point of contact on the Rice side.

Not everyone who gets invited to junior day gets offered.

Sometimes a HS coach will just bring 8-10 guys on a “college road trip” with players of different skill levels and schools of different flavors.

RE: Mike Bloomgren's 1st Rice recruiting class
Junior days are basically collective unofficial visits, making them good opportunities to invite a ton of kids (a lot who you haven't offered) while not exhausting your allocated # of officials.

For sure... this one from a mom:
Alandra Speights@SP8SMOM - We have been to ALOT of jr days but this one felt different! The excitment was incredible! @RiceOwlsFB is moving in a positive direction!

FYI, her son is @C_sp8s5 Campbell Speights

Can one of the moderators split this off into a “2nd recruiting class” thread?

We also offered 2019 WR Kiaeem Green a couple weeks ago, which I missed. Louisiana Tech commit out of New Orleans. He tweeted it as an offer from the University of Rice, which will forever be one of my greatest pet peeves.
