Things are slow.
One thing on my mind is that the Beavs need a breakthrough recruit to take things to the next level (in that regard, recruiting). We all feel GA should recruit better than Riley because of his personality and winning tradition, but when do we see that breakthrough with regard to recruiting? Is it once he starts to win big on the field at OSU? Is there any way it happens before that? I think so, probably a domino effect after the first 4-star signs? Is it getting more Florida kids on board? I feel like right now GA is near the Riley level in terms of the star system, but slightly above Riley in terms of the eye test and how [more] developed the recruits are. But there hasn’t been the watershed recruit who changes the program yet. We need that guy.
On a funny note, Beaverblitz took two hours to break the last commitment, even though our own twitter feed had it seconds after it happened. They “needed confirmation”, even though the tweet came straight from the recruit himself. I’d say the only reason to sign up for Blitz in the modern age of twitter is that some of the posters there are close to the program and have good inside info, but even that is rare. In terms of the recruiting info, they are worthless in the twitter/hudl paradigm. Probably a main reason Mamma Machado was so afraid of Riley leaving is that she lost some contacts…
Otherwise, I’m just waiting for fall camp. There’s just not much going on that’s interesting. Have at it.
