Earlier in the week, Chris Culliver, NC State’s top 2007 football (not so) ‘committment’ finally officially withdrew his word-isn’t-really-his-bond this week. At least we weren’t the only ones.
The focus this afternoon will most certainly be on Carolina losing their #1 football recruit from last year. (Link)
But, he’s now the only former recruit with some struggles.
Dennis Godfrey, the trouble Wake Forest “recruit indicted on charges of rape and kidnapping of a 16-year-old girl at a cookout will not enroll at the school this fall, officials said Friday. Dennis Godfrey signed a letter-of-intent to play football for the Demon Deacons in February. He was indicted last month by a grand jury, and also faces charges of second-degree sexual offense and sexual battery.” (Link)
* As a related link – this is an intereting look at a “can’t miss” prospect that will serve to provide an example that no prospect is a guaranteed stud.
I remember writing an article a few years ago about Carolina’s football team.
They had one of the worst OLines in America the previous season and were suddenly predicted to be much better the next year.
Just because they were returning players didn’t mean that they were returning talent. Experience & maturity are definitely nice to have…but, they don’t make up for bad talent.
