Got curious about Derek David since we rarely offer JUCOs. Turns out he was a soft commit to Text Tech for the class of 2012 and an early 4 star according to scout. He was however charged for sexual assault and had his scholarship offers rescinded. It's only been a year since then and he hasn't even played a down for his JUCO yet. Anyone think this offer is just slightly interesting? However, I won't doubt Hoke's judgment considering the hard line stance he's taken with some recruits/players already.
