    This made me wonder how bad their recruiting has actually been, so I checked their 247 "All-time commits" (which is somewhat limited as it seems to only go back to 2003). Their top recruit is Glynn Watson and he would plug in at #21 for us right between Crandall Head and DJ Williams.

    Do we know the Baylor game is happening? I know the Orlando bubble was nixed, but haven't heard if they found a new site or if they're just cancelling the games. I would love a pair of top-10 matchups within the same week.

    Apologies if it's been talked about, but what Covid rule would allow them to come back for a 5th year?

    The bolded parts really stuck out to me, too. How many guys don't start but also turn into one-and-done...?

    Agreed on the confusion. My current understanding is that Ayo is on the short list and Kofi is not, but it's possible that the Ayo reports were for the 100+ rather than the short list...idk man.

    It sounds like Kofi may not have received an actual invite yet. Nothing has been made official, so it seems like he still may.
