    Mykael Wright looks bigger than 180 lbs. You aren’t going to block him with a wide receiver, at least at the high school level. He is way too strong for that.

    A lot of hitters don’t bother to tackle well, figuring (I guess) they’re just gonna deck you and that will be that. Wright wraps you up while decking you. I like it.

    seems like odd timing re some of these offers – offering what would appear to be some of their top national DBs prospects while at same time offering regional prospects with limited offer sheets like the DBs from illinois, michigan, etc.

    appears theyve been throwing out a ton of in state and regional offers to lower ranked / less heralded prospects of late…maybe its partially due to the new signing day, who knows. maybe they feel they need to extend an offer to even be in consideration when the times comes or to start building relationships earlier via offers.
    its odd though to see them offer top national OL targets and then offer the kid dean from walled lake – not that he wont or cant be a good college player, they just jumped with very early offer and it was a situation where i didnt see the promising tape, etc (other than massive size).

    obviously some less heralded guys will continue to develop and gain traction and offers on recruiting front. and not all lower ranked prospects are the same – for example that kid hamilton looks like he has a chance to be pretty good and appears underrated while heard has more work to do, yet both ranked around 1000 nationally.

    i just find the staffs recent approach on the trail interesting, thats all. theyll likely always offer good players and guys they envision as contributors and impact players as soon as theyre comfortable, aka whenever they see film or watch in person, have necessary chats, perform due diligence, etc.
    just seems like theyre offering a greater number of less heralded guys earlier in the process than maybe in past years – or maybe its much the same and im seeing smoke where there isnt any (prob due to the close of last years class and situations like vincent gray). i didnt look up the numbers so maybe its very similar.

    its all good though as long as they dont start accepting commits from some of what are clearly 2nd and 3rd tier options on their board. if they miss out on their top targets, then 2nd or 3rd options become the name of the game and itll have to do – just as long as theyre swinging for the fences

      You frequently don’t know who has an offer that can be committed on now, as opposed to under some set of circumstances that may or may not come about later.
