    Another potential "Moritz Boehringer" in the making, this time with WR "Bernhard Raimann" from Austria. Central Michigan has offered him:

    http://www.hudl.com/athlete/3687036/highlights/167002375

    Of course, 247sports has him listed as a TE, even though, as you can see in the highlights, he was always a split wide and has never played TE. He's 6'5", 200lbs with obvious athleticism and very good speed.

    Also, I had no idea they played American football in Germany and Austria.

    Yep, and how many teams even give a precious scholarship to a punter, any punter, let alone one in a class that is almost two years out? Were they afraid that Alabama was going to offer him first? There's some teams who give one to a kicker perhaps every couple of years so they have a couple of good ones on the team, but that's an absolute best-case scenario. I'm sure him being Poly had nothing to do with it whatsoever <sarcasm>.

    It really does make me wonder if the reason Mendenhall left BYU was due to this whole poly recruit effort. I hope it fails.

    UVA seems to be trending in a whiter direction since Mendenhall took over. He has a white qb and ot transfer. Not sure how the recruiting class is looking but bringing more white faces to the acc is a good thing.

    Agreed. Found it interesting Wisconsin was his first offer and it Will probably be his last. I expect him to commit shortly after this offer .

    Ain't that the truth.

    Here's one from Rivals. On the front page headline link, it says "hard-hitting Safety", but when you go to view the actual profile, he's listed as a Cornerback.

    Of course, this is a par-for-the-course for these ratings agencies for White defensive players...Middle Linebackers become Fullbacks, Defensive Ends become Tight Ends, Defensive Linemen become Offensive Linemen, and Cornerbacks become Safeties. There's no agenda, of course, and those that think there is are "tin-foil-hat-wearing racist wackos".

    Here's a story that I'm sure Heretic will like: Nebraska, which has been notorious for not offering white players in their own state unless they are blue chip calibre, recently offered some fat black DT from York, who committed on the spot. Well, I was reading an article, and here's an excerpt from that:

    So, teams run away from him even though he's not dominant? This guy (who's already committed mind you) isn't a dominant player, and needs to become more explosive and work on conditioning?? So basically, he's just a fat ass who can't do anything besides stand there? If this is the case, it defies all logic why Riley and co. would offer him already; he's just started his junior year. Of course, we here know why he got that offer, when guys who are actually dominant in Nebraska football, like Brent Kitrell and Jack Begley don't get one this cycle; they don't have that magical upside that guys like Mapieu (said DT "prospect" always seem to have.

    I'm sure once he's in a college weight room he'll realize his potential..What a joke of a system. Caste system is just sports extension of Affirmative Action policies in our once proud country.

    Iowa offers Athlete from Illinois. It's his first "Power 5" offer (of course). I mean, who in their right mind would want a player that's currently 6'1" 196 lbs (and will probably be 6'2" 200lbs+ by the end of his Senior year) ran a 4.46/40 at Illinois' camp last summer and just led his team to a state title while rushing for 2,211 yards and 43 touchdowns? Obviously, not Illini coach "Hatie" Smith. So much "White Privilege" I can't stand it.

    Northwestern lands its QB for this class. Thankfully he committed quickly after an offer because they also offered a quotaback just a few days ago. He's listed as a Pro-style QB (with his current 6'5", 195lb frame) and he throws a great ball, but he showcases some good speed and instincts on some runs as well if you check out his Hudl highlights.

    Again we see another top rated qb go to a school where another top rated white qb has committed to in Hunter Johnson. This lack of logic is something I do not understand. Look at Alabama or USC and ask one of the highly rated qbs stockpiled there how that has gone for them. So many schools need a qb and he chooses Clemson.

    In this case I'm OK with it because he's the only QB (so far) that's committed to them for 2018. Hopefully it will stay that way. It's a difficult balance. Getting one four or five star QB a year is a good strategy for a top-tier team. If they are as good as their stars indicate, they'll likely go pro after their Junior year anyway, opening up an early opportunity for someone else. Having four highly-rated QBs on the team at one time, spaced out in the same number of years, is probably an ideal situation, both to foster competition and just in case one or more of them get injured. Five QBs is too much at any one time.
