ESPN has him as a 4 star, #290 in their top 300. I assume many of you saw the ESPN scroll announcing this during the UMD game.01/21/2014 at 7:36 AM #38041GreywolfParticipant

No, I missed it. If it was in the first half, I probably had my head in my hands.01/21/2014 at 7:18 PM #38092inhoc…Participant
I have the same question regarding the size of the class. How many spots available? I wonder if those who were “no longer on the roster” were quietly ushered out the door? Would hate to think that but perhaps someone who a better grasp on the situation can chime in.01/22/2014 at 9:11 AM #38107charger17Participant
If we’re out of the running for Scott, how’s the visit for Thomas-Williams looking this weekend? Do we have a realistic shot at one of these guys?01/22/2014 at 9:59 AM #38110
its my understanding we are at the 25 max (which includes a spot for Shawn Boone) who is holding an ‘announcement’ party at his high school, but has already ‘announced” to our coaches he is committed. So unless, something unforeseen happens, we don’t have space for Thomas-Williams. which makes the Shad issue an even larger one.01/22/2014 at 11:10 AM #38111FergusWolfParticipant
I thought it was standard practice to always get too many commitments, because there are a few that will change their mind (or someone with cash will change their mind) at the last second before they actually sign.01/22/2014 at 11:26 AM #38112FergusWolfParticipant
According to ESPN recruiting, we currently have 30 players with verbal commitments. 5 4*, 29 3*, and 1 2*.01/22/2014 at 11:35 AM #38113Deacon BluesParticipant
^ check ur math01/22/2014 at 12:31 PM #38114
I’m pretty sure if they enroll early (spring), they can count against this year’s numbers.01/22/2014 at 3:06 PM #38118
Foose is correct. We had several enroll early (counting ultimately against last yrs #’s) and a few a gray shirting as well, which dont count against this years #’s either.01/22/2014 at 3:07 PM #38119
SO to answer Fergus’ question, we technically did “over-recruit” the 25 number01/22/2014 at 3:42 PM #38122Deacon BluesParticipant
JIC I am not the only one who knew not what “grey shirting” was, is or could be. From the interwebs:
“Grayshirt is another new term and is applied to the prospect that signs a letter of intent in February, but doesn’t report in the fall with his teammates. He delays entry to college until midyear, i.e. January. That NCAA five-year clock doesn’t start ticking until the player enrolls as a full time student, so gray-shirting is really a delayed version of red-shirting. For Example, Texas Tech, signed 34 players in February 2006, but NCAA rules prevent them from enrolling more than 25 to start the fall. Some of those nine other players gray-shirted during the 2006 fall season. They cannot enroll in college as full time students, can’t receive their scholarship, nor practice. It is like getting an extra year of practice, because most of these players don’t see the game field until two years later and they have the advantage of going through an extra spring practice.”
Apparently we also had some players “Green Shirt” too:
“Green shirt is a relatively new term and is applied to that high school senior that forgoes his spring semester in high school to enroll in college in January. Green means “go” as in “go early”. More and more you see high school seniors pass up their final semester to get to campus early. If a player (or the college staff), thinks he may be able to play right away as a freshman, it provides him with the opportunity to go through spring practice, learn the system, and get acclimated to being on campus. Obviously that takes some prior planning on the part of the player and his parents to insure he can graduate from high school early.”01/22/2014 at 3:44 PM #38123
Nice, espn. It’s North Carolina STATE!01/22/2014 at 3:46 PM #38124YogiNCParticipant
So out of the 7 that enrolled for the spring semester which ones fall into which category?
