On this morning's Recruiting Roundup Sam seemed to double down on his previous indication that "a couple" of good things would happen for us in June. Today he responded to a questioner who felt that we have been missing out on too many of the very top prospects; ie, Isaac, Levenberry, Garnett, etc.. Sam's answer was that we already have many top guys in this class and he also hinted very broadly that we can expect some top names to commit to the Maize & Blue in the very near future. No gut feelings and no names mentioned, but a very confident statement. Let the speculation begin. LaQuon and Poggi are the two obvious big names out there, and though Hurst is not a big name (yet) I think he would be a fantastic addition to the class. Get those three on board and we are playing with house money.
