Dead to me

This news hardly comes as a surprise.

Aside from how the coronavirus affects the timing of the 2020 football season, the other shoe waiting to drop is whether it affects the two national signing days for the class of 2021, as well.

    I’ve been trying to figure out if this is a good thing or a bad thing for Georgia. One the one hand, We’re one of the main “brand” programs right now with top talent. So, we don’t necessarily need to get a kid on campus to convince them that they want to be a part of what we’ve got going. On the other hand, we seem to be a program that is good to “flip” two or three top players in every cycle late, and i wonder how much of those relationships is built during this time of year when kids come to campus or when coaches go out into the field. Also, I’m concerned about the talent evaluation process where our coaches are going to get fewer and fewer chances to discover players at camps who may not be on their radar screens. I guess Georgia is in a better position than most programs in an extended dead period scenario. Lesser Power 5 teams like Vanderbilt and non-power 5 teams are really going to be hurt. But I don’t think this is good for anyone.

    When are schools allowed to send LOI’s out? If a kid wants to go ahead and officially sign a commitment letter can that happen before the next early signing period?

      No. Commitments are verbal and non-binding and can be made by a player at any time. However, letters of intent can only be signed during the early signing period or on the traditional national signing day or after for the following academic year.

    Now would be a good time to rename this phase of recruiting.
