I don't intend to offend my friend, but I'd rather hold off for a bit. Some people can be a bit hostile at times... But he's in the top 10 overall in our state in all rankings not just 247. He's a top 15 player nationally at his position as well. Coach Jones will bring in some talent.

LoL, just because I defend a kid from certain bias doesn't mean that's him. :)
I think lots of kids are going to love playing for this group. Quality people.
And the 3 star train keeps rolling with A.J. Branisel! Again, I like that some people are taking visits and we do have some momentum there, but this guy's offer sheet is not SEC caliber, which is telling of itself. I hope that we can land some studs, but we just haven't yet. Jan 11th will be a HUGE weekend for CBJ and staff. As he said, if they can get them on campus, then that's all they should need.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
You realize there are only a handful of 4 star tight ends right?
While i have been critical of the recruiting progress thus far, you are correct. There arent a ton of elite tight ends, and most HS tight ends dont get a ton of balls and stats, so to sign a three star tight end of this kids caliber is a good get for us. Still doesnt alleviate concerns with the class overall, however. We need to close strong down the stretch to consider this a successful effort by the staff imho.
I feel like the staff is doing what they can. Behind the 8-ball when it comes to this years class. Need to close the best they can, but next year and the year after will tell more about there ability than this year. They are selling Tennessee in 2 months and other schools have been selling themselves for 2 plus years to the same kids.
