The only recruit yet to sign is Monty Madaris. Speculation abound that he called off of school sick today and that Mr. Meyer may be in his ear. (RCMB calls Meyer 'Nucky', which if you follow Boardwalk Empire, then - yes. This may be the only RCMB nickname that I approve) Their class consists of 17 kids, not counting Madaris. Notable additions: Burbridge (WR), Cox (DB), and Jamal Lyles (DE).
Nucky has snake-oiled enough recruits to earn the top recruiting spot in the Big Ten. Aside from the possibility of Madaris, OSU today confirmed the commitment of 4* Kyle Dodson (OT). Meyer sleazed his way into the heart of several other previously spoken for recruits including; Pittman (DE, MSU), Reeves (DB, PSU) Taylor Decker (OL, ND), and Camren Williams (LB, PSU). I'm starting to associate Meyer with Saban in terms of sleaztasticity. Sleaztasticity may not even be a strong enough invented word. He has brought SEC oversigning north on his unholy conquest of the midwest, continuing to find ways to pull in recruits. Thankfully, Hoke had our guys hanging strong and we did not lose any commits, just lost a few recruiting battles. Meyer's next trick is to find a way, through power of hypnosis, to convince several bench warmers that they should try their hand in ice dancing.
Today ND lost a borderline blue chip prospect to Houston, if that gives you a sense of their day. They also lost out on another solid 4* guy in OL Decker. Their current class sits at 16, with Gunner Kiel as the only 5*. Their class never materialized, leaving many Domers pissed about their prolongation of the return to greatness.
