We know that Grayson's offer to Nebraska is committable since he is committed.  Was just curious if Tennessee's, TTU's, etc were all committable and if that is why his rating on Rivals is "low" according to swmohusker.

I’ll admit I read none of that crap above. My statement is more in general of Frosts recruiting at Nebraska.

I think it’s fair to assume that all offers made by frost’s staff are committable until that position group is full.

 

So QB offers are no longer committable I assume and it’s possible RB offers are not committable right now.

I disagree, kind of. 

 

Maybe they aren't straight up telling kids their offer is non-commitable. But I could see them doing things like telling kids they have to wait and visit before they can commit.... but then Frost&Co can schedule the visit as late in year as they want. 

 

We have two WR spots available this year and it's been said they'll be picky, therefore they aren't going to take just anyone.

I was speaking more in terms of Grayson and his rating being too low or spot on.  swmohusker believes it's too low because of the reported offers.  I am just wondering, because of his injury, if these are all committable offers and if not, does that affect Rivals' rating of a player.

2 star is too low for this kid.  If you factor in film, measurables ,competition, and "reported" offers this kid is not a 2 star kid.

Yeah, that’s possibly also true. I mean, not many dudes are committing immediately after they get offered either.

So why are they rating him as such?

Possibly because they are still in the process of getting their ratings updated.

Dont know.   Will he be a better prospect when they bump his ratings up?  Nope.  

 

He is a 3 star by 247 and ESPN.  Don't think his 2 star by rivals is an indicator of his talent.  That is my opinion and by no means factual.

I thought if guys ratings go up they automatically get faster and more athletic because of their ratings? Thats not true?

Currently in 33rd for team ranking on 247.

 

If we land Henrich, Robinson, Hickman, Mullen, Ike, Anderson it basically locks us into 50th based on the 2018 class final rankings which isn’t bad at all considering its with 14 commits only.  It’ll all come down to what Frost can do with the remaining open slots.

 

Anyone known the number in this class now?

I have heard they are pushing for between 22-25. Guessing thats because of more attrition on the way. So if they add another 10 to that 14 you mentioned. I would see them in the top 20 if its quality guys.

I've said since the beginning for specified college offenses like Frost's the star rating is less meaningful. Of course you don't want a team full of 2/3 stars, but the Pro Style kids out of HS get way more attention. We are locking up the local talent now, and will get a few big names once OV's hit this fall for live games. Take a deep breath boys it's only June.

I agree completely about the star ratings. A system like Frost can take a 3 star kid that has the raw talent and speed equal to a 5 star kid. He may not be as polished as the 5 star kid, thus why he is a 3 star- but Frost's system doesnt need them as polished. He just needs that raw talent and speed and put it in space and let it work. Teams with a more pro style system need that polished kid for their structured system.

If that claim was true then Wisconsin's recruiting rankings would be much higher and there would be teams winning national championships who weren't always in the top 5-10 of recruiting rankings every year.

Is the overly dramatic commitment video era over?  I haven't seen one of the recruiting services tweet one out in quite some time.

I think after some of these kids committed to like 3 different schools it lost its luster.

I think we were wrapped up in our crap season and the quest to get HC Scott Frost, so we just weren't seeing the video commits. I suspect they'll be back in force as signing day gets closer.
