From a direct Hopkins source “Do you wear your Illinois socks when top kids commit to your school? Make sure they are washed and ready to go! You’re welcome.” He also stated the decision will be within 72 hours. Hoping/praying he’s right but this is obviously great news.

Hopkins and his entourage seem to be keeping really late hours as they contemplate options. Some of the best information gets leaked after midnight. Was this not a school night (i.e. studies; homework; early to bed)?
 
       
Hmmmm....... Three degrees of separation. I prefer just one or two!
Okie dokie just reporting what I’m hearing. My 2nd source hasn’t been wrong yet - 1st source is obviously specific just to Hopkins.

All caught up on 3 days of posts. I am now emotionally and mentally drained, may have to take the day off.

I hope at some point, we have 15 pages in this thread on the 13th day of the month, but it's talking about the group of 5 ⭐ we have committed early and are overcommitted by 3, ranked number 1 in the nation (previous year, poll and recruiting) and the sidewalks leading up to :ah: are covered in gold.

Where's a wanna-believe gif when you need one?

Yup, all 10, which includes Bossi now.

Similar movement towards Kentucky on Rivals futurecast. Given what the insiders on here have been saying, I'm wondering if this is an indication of a late push by Kentucky and a (hopefully misplaced) confidence of some experts that if Kentucky pushes hard enough they can land him.

Everyone was asking about Hopkins being on campus, was this gif implying that Mac Etienne was on campus?

I definitely read it as a reference to Mac being on campus.

School night? You mean Zoom school? lol. I just hope that some good news or a decision comes today.

Has, can, or may anyone confirm the post about the 13th as being a tentative commit date for Hopkins?

Kedric Prince mentioned to Loren Tate and Steve Kelly this past Saturday that he thought it might/could/should be the 13th. I speculate the winds have been swirling inside the family since then.....particularly since Kevin McNamara now says it should happen over the next two weeks.
 
       
I actually prefer the cloak and dagger stuff to the quick and easy band-aid rip of say a DJ Williams newspaper announcement.
