Just noticed on TTB that we have offered a DB from Virginia named Chris Holmes. He is an NC State commit with meh offers and a consensus low three star (Max 2 star on 247). Looks a lot better than that on the film below - maybe he blew up in his senior year and was overlooked. So far staying with his commitment until he meets their new staff, but if he decommits we are in a good position.
Also saw on a Tremendous FB post that a Nebraska commit, 2013 OL Dan Samuelson, visited this weekend. I am all for snake-oiling Nebraska players.
So far Holmes is staying committed to NC State, and I sort of doubt he changes that stance unless the new coaching staff doesn't want him...and I think the new coaching staff will want him.
I'm sure they'll want him too he's the lone bright spot in a garbage class.
Despite his ranking, he's not that under the radar. He reports offers from Clemson, South Carolina and WVU.
Otherwise known as backup plans.
One of the things that I've discovered about these newspaper things is that if Player A is good on both offense and defense, and Player B is only noteworthy for defense, then sometimes they'll just list Player A for offense and Player B for defense. That way they can include more kids, keep more fans/schools happy, and get less hate mail.
Every community I've lived in has always complained that the local newspaper is biased for THE OTHER school in the area, so it's a no-win situation for the papers...but I think they usually try to make as many people happy/interested as possible.
Can't say anything about this specific newspaper, but all the newspapers in my area choose all-blank teams by coaches votes... Which are very political in a quid-pro-quo sense. They never reflect the actual level of talent or performance.
Get it Daddy
of year, break out the "snake oil" yeah!
We should not take Dan Samuelson. He's unathletic an plays with poor pad level.

What about the rest?
Hoke and Beilein could recruit all players that have no star rating, and I'd still believe they are getting the best players
