I won't knock you too hard for your Debbie downing because I am sure you weren't the only one thinking it. I will say Collins' track record of holding on to prized recruits is really good. The only real flip (as opposed to a "mutual" decision) I can think of off the top of my head is Trent Howard who got a last minute Clemson offer and that was his dream offer. I think we have a good shot. Regardless, it is a good sign that we are getting commitments this far out. Shows kids are taking notice and buying what we are selling.
The longer you are a GT fan, the more examples you collect of recruits in the bag (not that way) going to other schools.He only committed this early because GT was his dream school. He wanted this outcome from the start. Hard to flip someone away from their dream school.
"Rarely" may be going a bit far, but we've all seen how often these early commitments go by the boards. As time goes on, he'll be getting some great offers if he's as good down the road as he seems now. His being a Tech fan will augment the odds that he sticks. None of us know him and for all we know he's (hopefully) rock solid and unshakeable. Hopefully, the Jackets will get some more good O-linemen in here and start winning big when time rolls around for him to sign.Okay, you have some stats to back that up? Or does it just feel good to say.
