Everyone just needs to keep in mind that it has been a very long time since these kids have been able to take visits. They wanna go places. However, this staff is legit.
Wonder how many "silent verbals" or at least alliances between some of the kids to commit in the future are already in the works.

I do not even think about silent verbals anymore. They are meaningless. Recruiting is way too fluid.

Welcome fellow Jolietan!

Is Hood a legit LB in this BB's defense, or is he more of a strong safety prospect?
I think it’s too early to tell. Looks like he will need some time to develop to me, but I think it’s a great pickup and hope it leads to more.

Potentially going from an LB to a safety? I don’t know a whole lot about football talent but I know speed wise that transition usually moves in the other direction. Does he have the speed for that?

With visits just being allowed for recruits I wouldn’t be shocked to see recruits taking their time and soaking up this travel opportunity as much as possible.
Agreed, 1st ones if done well will soaked up by these young men. Important and seems to be the norm so far.
