Staff is getting momentum on the recruiting trail. Big pickup that hopefully starts the pipeline to Matdhall.

Wow! So we beat out aTm?

How often do we beat them for recruits? I hope that he actually signs!

not sure f he’s a wrong qb recruit but i would give home a shot at qb.

He is 100% a wr. He will not play qb here. But he is a hug pick up. Offer list was a little small, but if he hadn’t committed he would have picked up a ton of offers this offseason at camps. I’m pumped about this one!

Rivals rated him a 5.7, which is the highest rating before being four-star. He was his district’s MVP and had early offers from Aggy and Pitt. Great pickup. I have a good feeling about the ‘23 class.

Texas 5A District MVP as Junior means you have some serious talent. If you grabbed 20 of those from around the state every year you’d have a hell of a team.

When are Alexander and Langi getting ranked for our 2022 class? Once they are, we move up.

I have not followed recruiting in a long time but do they still do that signing day thing were all the kids declared on that day or is it different now.

You have 2-3 signing periods now. One in December, transfers enroll by January school start date, and February. Our next push is the transfers that can start school in January and then the final national signing day (believe Feb 2).

Talked to one of the Marshall coaches. He said
Banks is super smart and extremely competitive. Thinks he will be a great slot receiver. That’s a great pipeline to get started. I think that’s 2 Buffs on the team (Antonio Brooks being the other).
