Rivals nationwide recruiting director Adam Gorney and South-Central analyst Sam Spiegelman together with UGASports.com’s Jake Reuse and a particular visitor look from Rivals social media lead Woody Wommack deal with three subjects in recruiting and decide whether or not they imagine the statements or not.
Gorney’s take: FICTION. That is going to be extremely debated over the following many months resulting in signing day but it surely’s clear each gamers are particular abilities particularly after I noticed video of Travis Shaw this previous weekend utterly destroying the opponent’s offensive line and residing within the backfield. However simply because Shaw is nice doesn’t imply Keithian Alexander isn’t as effectively and proper now we’ve him a number of spots forward within the rankings. Alexander is huge, highly effective, aggressive and decided as effectively to dominate on the defensive position so I nonetheless give him a slight edge however Shaw is making this debate very fascinating particularly after the tape I noticed from this previous weekend.
Wommack’s take: FACT. This one is definitely actually robust for me however I am one of many few folks has had the possibility to see each in individual over the previous month. Alexander is clearly a powerful expertise and the work he is performed to vary his physique over the previous year-plus additionally exhibits that he is not content material resting on his laurels. However I got here into Shaw’s sport on Friday night time with out figuring out what to anticipate and I left blown away. It is uncommon to see a participant of Shaw’s dimension along with his kind of athleticism mixed with a continuous motor. I feel selecting between these two guys is an efficient downside to have and exhibits the depth on the place, however I feel Shaw is absolutely stating his case this spring with a powerful junior season.
Gorney’s take: FACT. That is nonetheless a really shut race between I feel Ole Miss and Miami however Khamauri Rogers has developed a wonderful relationship with place coach Terrell Buckley and that might be the deciding issue. This isn’t a bond that solely goes again a number of months between Buckley and the previous four-star LSU commit from Lexington (Miss.) Holmes County. The 2 have identified one another for years, the draw to remain nearer to residence might be important and I feel the Rebels have the sting right here though Miami and others usually are not giving up.
Spiegelman’s take: FICTION. Ole Miss could have an edge among the many in-state groups, however I’d not low cost the consistency of Miami, the latest surge from Texas A&M and Tennessee and the lengthy mutual curiosity between Rogers and Notre Dame. Rogers will take visits to those packages – some official and a few unofficial – and kind by means of his determination, however proper now it appears like Miami, Notre Dame and Tennessee are out-of-state packages to watch.
Gorney’s take: FICTION. Georgia is certainly a serious contender and the Bulldogs have performed such an exceptional job recruiting the state of Florida however I nonetheless assume Miami has lots of enter in Kamari Wilson’s remaining determination, Florida is certainly on this one and so are another SEC packages. My intestine intuition is that Wilson finally ends up staying shut and that the Hurricanes positively maintain lots of intrigue as a result of the IMG four-star security is initially from Fort Pierce, Fla. I’d positively not rely out Georgia due to its observe file in recruiting however I wouldn’t say the Bulldogs are absolutely the frontrunner for him.
Reuse’s take: FACT. I am actually torn on this as a result of it is laborious to parse out a frontrunner from a prime 12, however I do assume Georgia sits in a robust sufficient place that the Bulldogs might be the standout of the group. The sensation round Athens has been that Wilson has been very a lot in play for a while, and whereas this in all probability does little to clear up any questions in regards to the standing, I feel there’s nonetheless some validity to that. Whether or not or not they will have the ability to maintain on for the remainder of the trip definitely stays to be seen, however as of immediately, I am prepared to provide them the nod.
