TomVH: Jordan Diamond Update

Submitted by TomVH on May 18th, 2011 at 1:13 PM

Illinois OL Jordan Diamond just tweeted that his decision will likely come sooner than expected. I sent him a text to see how soon was soon. He said:

Yeah, my decision will come sooner but I'm still evaluating schools. It will probably be the first game of our season.

Jordan plans on visiting every school that he's already visited to do his final evaluation. Previously he had said that he wanted to take his official visits and take his time throughout the season.

I had a friend out in cali that told me Hoke was a monster recruiter at SDSU. Basically getting in on guys that SDSU had no business getting on campus.  I thought he was just blowing smoke up my ass, but I'm actually starting to believe this guy has a real knack for recruiting.  Even if we don't land all of these prospects, be in on this many, this early is pretty awesome.

There is no way you turn around a program as bad as sdsu that quickly without some recruiting chops.  I noticed that some highly recruited guys in my area (OC/LA) were mentioning sdsu, which was pretty surprising to me as well.

with all the early commits... is this what it's like recruiting at Texas where you have your whole class filled before you snap a ball in fall practice and you get to sit back and eat giant steaks shaped like your state? If so, then sign me up for a Upper Pennisula Flat Iron, medium rare.
