“This is now the residual signing period.”

Wednesday’s gonna be pretty ho hum for Dawgnation.

“This is when you clean things up. You’re worried about a handful of kids, at most, when you’re talking about these top-25 or top-40 teams.

“What you’re going to really start seeing is this second period being used more by the bottom Power Five teams and a majority of the Group of Five programs. This is going to be their signing day.”

Alabama and Georgia currently possess the nation’s top two classes and accumulated a combined 46 December signees, with the Crimson Tide’s 24 topping the 23 they compiled in last year’s overall cycle.

Georgia has two, three spots remaining and it wouldn’t surprise me if Kirby holds one in reserve for a later signing.  I guess the most entertainment we can hope for this week is that somebody messes with Auburn’s, Florida’s and Tennessee’s shit.

    This is what has got the paid recruiting guys panties in a wad. They have started covering classes 2-3 years out so they can drum up business. It is time for the NCAA to say enough is enough, the schools can only contact (no bumping into or secret offers) kids after the football/basketball season of their Junior year. If you do the hammer drops. Let the high school coaches have time with the wonder kids before the circus comes to town.

      I would like that as well. I support the ESD but feel having someone commit over a year in advance complicates things. Fall of a player’s Junior year, December, gives them a year to get things lined up if they know what they want, well in advance of a December signing day. Plenty of time to visit schools, interact with the staff, and make a decision they can stick with. Committing so early just leads to more decommitments, and miscommunication.

    Given the departures since early signing day, the quest for more depth at RB, TE, WR, and QB should keep Georgia fans interested.

    I saw where the nerds got that transfer WR from Miami, Ezzard. Guess he wants to be the big fish in a small pond.
