    Well, that right there is why I'm still a waffle house man.

    If we lose Gibbs and add Jayson Jones and Jalen Harrell, we are up to 207.63 and in 24th place ahead of Kentucky. Add Nate McCollum and Khatavian Franks to that we are at 210.82 (22nd ahead of Stanford).
    Add William Anderson (longshot but it's possible and he's teammate to Nate McCollum) and we are at 220.15 in 20th place.

    None of that is counting Javier Morton, Rashad Battle, or Desmond Tisdol, all of whom are highly rated and could end up in this class or replace some I've listed above. If CGC can close like he did last year, we should finish with a strong class.

    You can probably guess
    For recruiting to be where it needs to be, we will have some factories trying to poach our commits. Having one win doesn't help us retain guys who are getting OSU/Bama offers. Keeping them will get easier with more winning in the future. It does show we are going after the right guys.

    Even if we lose some, it sure beats having a bunch of recruits no one is trying to flip.

    Every school has kids that flip. If you expect Collins to close on everyone you will be disappointed. Alabama is still considered the most prestigious football school so it might be a while before we beat out them regularly.

    Also about Gibbs... let's not forget the significance of this guy. He's one of Gibbs' best friends and IIRC Gibbs lives with him:

    I like the fact that we were in on him early. Shows that our guys know how to evaluate talent. It's also much harder to flip somebody when you come in late on them. I know it's much easier for the factories to do that, but us having a relationship with him for much longer should help.

    Seems kinda crazy to seriously consider Bama when they have 2 other RBs. Or are they planning on unrecruiting one of those guys?

    GC is going to have to be able to" sell ice to Eskimos" if he keeps this class together or improves.

    We might be using different calculators, my numbers show different using

    https://247sports.com/college/georgia-tech/Season/2020-Football/Commits/Preview/

    It's showing me 211.36 dropping Gibbs and adding Jones/Harrell. Regardless, liking the names you're throwing out there!

    Folks best become accustomed to us having to fight to keep our recruits instead of nobody else coming after them.

    And we will be going after other teams big boy recruits.

    If he wants to beat UGA he doesn’t have to go to Bama to do it.

    Eh, this isn't basketball. Recruiting rankings aren't that heavily dependent upon any one player.

    Very correct.

    So we've gone from poaching Elon to having Bama poach us. I'm good with that.

    I will be more excited if we sign 4&5 star recruits than if we have our early commits poached by Bama.

    Just remember that as soon as you sign your name, to Nick Saban you're soybeans.

    The thing to note here is this isn’t unusual. We will get who we get and the only way up is to work up. Even then this is the game moving forward. Hope we get this kid and the staff keeps our class together/adds a few more.

    Our need at RB isn't that big right now. Gibbs would be a great player for us, but our needs on the lines are much bigger, so we can afford to lose gib s much more than other positions.
