Spooner, I lurk here and post occasionally. Thank you for all you do for these threads. I can’t imagine it’s a simple task, so if this request isn’t tenable I completely understand.  Is it possible to include the composite * rating on the prospects and/or commits? 
I don’t often get a chance to surf those recruiting sites I mostly live here when not working. If not, no harm no foul. Thanks regardless

I’d be interested to see if Dabo is still trying to recruit committed players. Seems like a double standard if so. God prob told him that was ok though.

I have watched a lot of football over the years and I don’t think I felt more confident about a WR making a play when it counted than Michael Jenkins. I know we have had guys that had better pro careers, some with better college stats... but man that dude just balled when it mattered.

Thank you guys for the up votes: much appreciated. I wanted to address the kids tweet directly though. His insinuation is that 5* D-lineman are going to be stars anywhere (which several of my peers here have already blown up) but also that LJ is only working with stud lineman. Hubbard wasn’t a lineman coming here and didn’t have D-line experience and LJ turned him into a 3rd round selection. Not bad for 3 years experience at the position. LJ’s done it in more examples, this is just the one I thought beat countered the players tweet.

Off topic a bit but I have a different angle on that trade. Detroit just paid 13 mil a year for notable qb room tutor Chase Danials to “back up” Matt Stafford. I think that’s a lot to pay for a back up. I could see them dealing Stafford to the Chargers and taking Tua at 3. They could just be in a rebuild? 
That’s just a thought though.

I was not one of your DV’s but I feel like you should know you are getting them because the CB flips of which you speak have been covered in both this thread and it’s predecessor. Again, I’m almost never a DV, just wanted you to know why you are receiving them.

Would Nick McCloud DB from NC State be a name In the portal we might be interested in? I know he’s eligible immediately and he has good stats in his last healthy year (2018)

11 starts, 51 tackles, a couple ints, and 8 PBU

he’s also 6-1. I don’t have the know how for film breakdown, so I’m asking opinions.

I 99% agree with this statement, however another possibility is that there is another person agreed to come when their team is eliminated form the playoffs... perhaps in SF. 

I don’t know a damn thing, but just leaving a 1% chance it’s someone else in the NFL ranks

It’s an NCAA rule book, it has over 200 pages. I did the “skimming” for you by telling you to direct your attention to page 90. If you don’t want to do your part and read it, then don’t comment and move along bro. Pretty simple

The link above is to the NCAA rule book. For those interested, targeting is outlined on page 90. The targeting rule protects defenseless players and lays out several examples of when a player is defenseless. In my opinion there is definitely a question as to TL being “defenseless” on this occasion. The only mention of a QB being defenseless is while in the act of throwing or having just thrown the ball. He did not throw the ball and had pulled the ball down to protect it and himself on this play. It also references a ball carrier being held up by another player and therefore not able to defend themselves against a hit. I don’t think this is applicable here either. 

Its very unfortunate for us that he was tossed out of the game on what was at the very least a questionable call. Didn’t there used to be 2 levels to targeting or am I misremembering?

Spooner, can you Please do a list of possible DB replacements that are signing at the late signing date? One similar to the ones you have been doing here all along would be awesome.
