I know it seems that many on this blog--myself included--have felt pretty good about the renewed recruiting focus in-state and are confident we will start to own the state again, particularly surrounding schools like Cass Tech. I know it's early and I am a Hokeamaniac, but on Rivals today they are talking about Royce Jenkins-Stone already having a #1 school--and it isn't UM. In fact, we're not even highlighted in his short list:
"The talented linebacker says that some of his early favorites include Iowa, Michigan State, LSU, Auburn, and Notre Dame, but says that one school sticks out currently [Oklahoma]. However regardless of how things stand currently don't expect any rash choices from Jenkins-Stone."
Not trying to suggest the sky is falling as I know it's premature and recruits like to many play games throughout the process, but I think it's critical that we score some early commitments with the new regime to get the momentum going and the perception changed with recruits. I am dumbfounded though how RJS is considered to a near lock for us and publicly he's not even referencing our name.
EDIT: I acknowledge the subject could have been clearer, so I updated it per the suggestions--and negbangs.
MENTAL NOTE: Even though I tried to put into context multiple times and ways that I know it's early and I'm not suggesting freak-out, I nonetheless get the comments. Remind me to stop posting on the site because unless you come up with a funny image, avatar, or sarcastic response, you will be negbanged and mocked.
