Snap Class Evaluations

Filed under: Football,Recruiting — Chas @ 6:30 pm

Signing day is done for Pitt. I mean there is still the outside possibility of one other kid joining the class at the end of the week (Kane Taylor), but for all intents and purposes the dust is mostly settled.

That means it is time to see what the recruiting rankings say about the class.

I know. I know. Recruiting rankings are meaningless. It’s about the grit and determination. It’s about uncovering those diamond-in-the-roughs and coaching them up. Aaron Donald was only a marginal 3-star recruit with not many major offers. Yada, yada, yada.

Yeah, no. The recruiting rankings do matter. No one claims they are perfect. No metric would be when it comes to evaluating how teenagers project out in — well… anything in life. StillĀ  they do a pretty good job compared to anything else.

Yeah, it’s really more than half over. Isn’t it?

With four kids already enrolled and taking classes, this isn’t a huge volume of signatories for National Signing Day.

Over half the 18 expected signees have their National Letter of Intent faxed over to Pitt by this point. Including Kenny Picket, Todd Sibley, Gabe Houy.

There are a couple other possible guys announcing today who might join the class.

It almost sees low key.

Almost.

Pitt has the thing going on with the ACC Digital Network to show behind the scenes stuff all day.

The media — including recruiting sites were invited to attend the whole day at the South Side Facilities. To be there when the kids faxes came through.
