    At this point staff feels KCM is the best of the leftovers.
    You are SO right.

    Most people would just look at his profile and see the offers from BCS schools like Nevada, Utah State and Fresno State. It's not all that hard to see.

    It's good to hear that Tribune, Harris, and DA Williams were in town this past weekend as well. I'm anxious to hear the staff's thoughts on Tribune and Williams come signing day.

    Danny Mac signed his share of 4 star recruits. He also signed a bunch of marginal recruits too. This class looks a lot like DMacs old classes.

    Welcome Kamari.

    The neg. Nancy's on here act like their job is on the line. Last I checked CPR is one putting his job on the line with every personnel decision. He is definitely more worried about missing on talent evaluations on guys he signed over guys that go to another team.

    "Danny Mac signed his share of 4 star recruits."
    Ummm...yeah. Some JC recruits who either never arrived on campus, or never panned out.


    "He also signed a bunch of marginal recruits too. This class looks a lot like DMacs old classes."
    Lolz! Maybe to someone who doesn't have a clue what he's talking about...

    Nevada, Utah State, and Fresno St are not BCS schools. Yes, they can make the BCS but they are not from power conferences. Did I really need to clarify that?

    Re: New football commit ? Kamari Cotton-Moya

    Our commits have only had offers added to their profiles when they make visits to other schools (Suttles, Tribune). To add to Rhoadhouse's argument, I suspect that when players communicate with coaches after they commit (possibly collecting offers) that they do not want the coach they committed too to know too much about it and that is why it only shows up when the player actually visits somewhere.

    I don't think I'm a big sunshine pumper, but I suspect more of these guys have collected offers over the last few months that don't show up on Rivals. I think it probably happens with early commits everywhere.

I'd say any school in the middle of their conference has at least 5-10 recruits a year that have 3 or less reported BCS offers on Rivals. Just because only one BCS school offered a kid, doesn't mean that he is a MWC level player. I used to think ISU was the only school who took kids without other offers, but that is far from the truth.
    Okay, believe what you need to but he is from California, not Idaho. He didn't go unnoticed due to lack of exposure. I'm not saying he won't be a fine player but it would seem he is Barnes replacement, and is an obvious fall back to Barnes.

    I just love how all these threads start with useful information and then quickly disintegrate into ******* matches between FANS of the team.

    Well, he is from Bakersfield, and they play San Joaquin Valley schools rather than LA area schools. I suspect that there are many more FBS coaches scouring the LA area compared to the SJ Valley just because the FBS talent is much more concentrated and you don't need to make a 1-2 hour drive from the airport to get there.

    I'm not really disagreeing with you because he's obviously not a hidden gem judging by the offers he has gotten, but he may have been more heavily recruited if he was more in the LA area.

    That is completely fair and may be true. He may be a hidden gem, I obviously have no idea.

    As big as California is, there are patches of areas that are under recruited, especially in areas that are harder to get to easily, such as Doc said.
