Consensus top 5 class again. 

I think we'll also flip 1 from PSU (Gonzalez, Barajas, McLean, or another yet to be determined).

Something else to consider....yeah, Wimbush is a more polished passer at this point, but TG seems to be building relationships with other recruits and could be quite influential in landing some of our other key targets.  We know he's talked with and remains a friend of Christian Kirk, Damien Harris, and now Ricky DeBerry.  Seems to really have a magnetic type of personality...guys want to play w/ him for sure.

Can't go wrong with either TG or Wimbush imo, but still hard to choose if you can only take one.

Sounds like we've made some good in-roads with Burrell.  He's one of those kids who has a lot of options (he has like 40 offers or something) so I would expect him to take his time and "shop around".  Probably will be a longer process...building relationships with the coaches, hanging with current players, meeting students, and talking to other recruits.

Don't know where OSU stood with him before this weekend, but assuming he's impressed then we've probably just made his decision even harder now.

Kid has a pretty nice offer list

Trust me it goes on all the time and you only hear about the ones who get caught.  It's impossible to monitor people 24/7 and keep track of cash being exchanged.  Only the stupid ones who flaunt it end up getting caught.  Buying expensive jewelry, cars, etc...stuff that attracts a lot of attention.

If I wanted to buy recruits as a booster I'd use my connections to get their family members a job probably.  This way you can legally pay them whatever you want and nobody is going to say "hey company X you shouldn't have hired this person!"

I've also heard people really put emphasis or stress the "thee" part.  That's probably what realy makes it give off the arrogant vibe. 

It's only a small number of people who are taking advantage of "the" and making it do something for which it was never intended...

My oh my.  How quickly things can change in the recruiting game.
