It matters. We ought to see improvements on the field and I believe we will.
http://www.chicagotribune.com/sport...ms-commits-20180323-story.html#nt=oft02a-2li3I think the coaching staff is working a one commit per week rotation. Allow each player to get the national fanfare, while keeping momentum alive.
From what I understand, we have 4 or 5 waiting to commit. I hope I'm right.
This is why we got these two and it has nothing to do with new facilities or nonsense like Lovie finally got better recruiters.
My brother in law retired to Charleston SC many years ago. Two years ago he walks into a coffee shop and an older fellow is in there wearing an Illinois sweatshirt. He asked the fellow if he also went to Illinois and the guy says "No but my son Gimbal President played football there.
Dad then explained that his son wanted some playing time to at least showcase what he could so for the NFL but it was equally important that he get his Masters.
Lovie promised that every resource of the athletic department was at his disposal to achieve those goals, tutoring, weight room, etc. even after his final season was over.
Then dad says "they lived up to every promise".
Recruiting is about relationships and they take time.
My brother in law still sees dad around Charleston and quite often he is in orange and blue.
Can someone summarize the interview? I'm at a conference today and won't be able to listen for a while? Thanks in advance!
BTW, we have 2 CB's for Shammond Cooper, Williams teammate and a 4 star LB recruit.
