At this point, any recruit that commits will be awesome.

Guys have to be careful with their words at certain points. It can be a tricky sell telling Ayo etc. on "being great, be in your state" while simultaneously telling Castleton to choose us over Florida. You have to make sure that same pitch isn't being rung in Castletons ear. If Florida picks up the heat, I'm sure it will be by them.

There is a different selling point to every single player. Every home town team uses that line and uses the opposite to get people out of state.

Ayo is the rumor.

But I doubt that he makes it.

Rumor has it that Ayo is going to stop and get THT, too.

If you were a qualifier out of high school and you go to prep school, do you even need to go to class? You have literally no academic work to do.

Can you take the equivalent of AP courses that might transfer in as college credits, making your freshman year in college easier?

I doubt if Sunrise has a whole lot of AP classes. My youngest, was able to test in to UIUC with 36 hours of AP credit. He was able to graduate with his engineering degree in 4 years. Saved me roughly $30,000.
