    This. They could have waited to see how these two panned out ,they are Hawk legacies, with no other significant offers, the exact kind of guys Fran could slow play and still pick up. It's weird to take their commit so early. I guess this can help him get started on next years class.

    Wow, I was thinking these guys were going down to Florida to play at IMG Academy which made me think there may be some improvement, but nope... DME Sports Academy

    Fran's put the kill switch in the program if he gets canned.

    The next guy would have to bring in 10 players.

    And when Fran gets fired (lets be honest it's trending towards that) be ready for the takes that the next coach gets a pass for the first 5-6 years to rebuild what Fran messed up.

    You think more of Fran's recruiting than I do. I'm not sure he can jump in late on recruits much better than this.

    Would that make it a 15 player rotation? Maybe a 17 player rotations? I can't keep track anymore.

    40 x 5 = 200 total minutes per game

    200/17 = 11.76 minutes per player per game!

    why would you sign 4 guys with no p5 offers to begin with if you were going to take scholarships away from your children?

    Hey @CyTwins, seeing Matthew Bain post that Xavier Foster knew that this commitment was coming.

    Any insight on how this affects their recruitment of him?

    Fran's brat kids dropping down to walk on status only makes the situation worse. FFS Fran might be looking at a 15 man rotation.

    Foster was never going to Iowa. Kept them on his list for political reasons. Same with DJ Carton

    Yep. Same scenario. Fran's staff told everyone they were a real contender, they were confident where they sat with them, etc when they had no chance. Soon enough the local and especially the national guys should pick up on this. Easier to tell your fans you tried your hardest and it just didn't work out then cut ties to a local 4 star kid in your backyard

    They had everyone fooled with Ulis too. It's their way of spinning it

    It's also a really good way to ensure you kids get plenty of PT without being totally obvious about your nepotism.

    The difference between how our media handles big recruits compared to Iowa's is quite staggering. It seems our media goes with the "we'll wait and see how things play out", "it'd be great to have a guy like this, but he'll be a tough get", etc. Whenever I see an article about a top recruit visiting Iowa or even considering, it's like the kid is 100% committed already and crystal balls pop up left and right.

    I honestly think they want these good guys but then after they miss it's just easiest to go after guys that won't threaten their PT and are friends with their kids
