    This is one of the biggest reasons I find myself not being as interested in college athletics as I once was. I'm tired of the dance. If you commit you should be able to sign that moment. Lets cut the crap. If you want to take visits...don't commit somewhere. When your visits are done, have a commitment/signing ceremony and let that be it. I know that won't happen because there is money to be made on the intrigue surrounding recruiting these days but I'm over it.

    The more precision you add to an already incredibly subjective thing like recruiting is pretty funny in a way. I mean - it allows you to cut and splice and have fun as you're doing. However, in the big picture of things, it's no different than the national recruiting guys ranking someone the #34 OL who plays ball in Texas compared to the #33 OL from Maryland. When you get to THAT level (as the 247 composite does with its precision) of comparison, it gets silly.

    While the analysis was trash, I kinda always liked ESPN's system, which as much as I can recall was 0 - 99 grade where each 10 point bracket had a generic projection for the player.

    Like, like 90 to 99 was Day 1 impact player. Future AA.
    80 - 89 was Day 1 starter

    Nasty! His highlight tape is basically all touchdowns where he makes defenders look like they're running in mud. I want him badly, despite some of the comments saying we need OL/DL more... I dont disagree with that take, but you want players like Jahmyr running behind our soon to be improved OL. It will take a strong effort to keep him in the fold.

    I absolutely love Gibbs' film. Especially his patience behind his blockers. I particularly like that he puts his hand on the blockers to keep himself from running up on them. It also lets the blockers know he's there. When that happened to me, it let me know to just go hit the guy rather than positional block and the back will make the decision.

    I don't look at it out to the last decimal place, really only the first 2, so it's not really adding that much more precision, they just use a different scale. For instance:

    4* players start around 0.8900
    3* players start around 0.8000

    So basicaly a 0.84 average is right below mid-pack 3 star, and closer to being a 2 than a 4. A 0.87 is much closer to being a 4 star average. That's why I look at the points more than the stars. You could have 2 classes off all 3 stars and one be average 0.88 with the other 0.81. That is an extreme difference. For instance 0.87 is near #650 recruit in the nation, 0.84 is #1350.

    Getting this guy would be amazing. He is an incredibly talented back, and we also haven't had a player from Dalton in a good while.

    Well he’s sold us the loss to Citadel and 1-5 start as transition pains so I’m thinking this is where he earns his keep.

    Gibbs is the real deal. Need to send CGC to all his games in a Waffle House food truck hovercraft helicopter.

    The Doc Walker recruiting approach. It does seem Gibbs is a cyborg werewolf caveman.

    I thought you were trying to compare CPJ's recruiting to CGC's recruiting; which is why I thought 2019 was a weird year to do that. I see now that is not the comparison you were making.

    No, the argument was that CPJ was poaching players from GSU and Appalachian State, as opposed to other P5 schools (Bama, Ohio State, etc..).

    I still give CGC a mulligan for 2019; because as you say our 'dire need' was OL and TE. 1 OL as a graduate transfer, and 1 TE poached from Rutgers is not what I would expect after a full year of recruiting effort (like 2020 and beyond). I am not complaining about 2019 because of the short window CGC had.

    Ah I gotcha... no in the first part of my response where I stated that 2 of his examples weren't exactly CPJ "flips" I was sort of talking about that part, but no I haven't ever been in the "CPJ only recruits FCS talent" camp. I do believe he was recruiting lower than we should be able to here though. That is where my second part of the argument comes in, and I was mainly addressing this statement:
    IMO Collins has done better than "ok" based on what we had been previously doing as far as recruiting goes. I used those examples to show that even in the class "CGC and gang took over," his recruits were still rated higher than the ones already recruited and committed by the previous staff, and the ones on the team that have been recruited over the past 4-5 years. His 2020 class looks to continue that trend.

    Here's one last look at those "subjective analyst's" numbers:

    GT Avg. Rating By year:
    2007 - 0.8731
    2008 - 0.8211
    2009 - 0.8547
    2010 - 0.8478
    2011 - 0.8321
    2012 - 0.8504
    2013 - 0.8356
    2014 - 0.8404
    2015 - 0.8446
    2016 - 0.8322
    2017 - 0.8389
    2018 - 0.8523
    2019 - Already Committed - 0.8528
    2019 - CGC recruits/transfers - 0.8734
    2020 - CGC commits - 0.8634

    See a correlation? I know in the last 2 years recruiting was trending upwards slightly, but not any higher than we have already had in the previous 10 years. Everybody knows what that 2007 class had as far as talent goes. Looks like that is the level we are recruiting at already and hopefully that continues to rise. If we get who we expect we can get in the 2020 class, that number moves up right near 0.87.

    We are going to sign Elite recruits and we are going to be an Elite program. Losing Gibbs is not indicative of such. Now gaining Jones and Stackhouse IS indicative of such claims. Let's hope it's the latter. Btw, what is Nazir's draw to Purdue !?

    .01 diff is not Elitism. Jones/Stackhouse would be.

    These days a "commitment" means about as much as a dinner reservation at Houstons.
