    Well, Frost signed some mulatto QB from California. He's highly rated, so there's a 95% chance he'll start next year because he's Frost's "guy." Given how other QB battles around the country shake out, I'll be shocked if the "upside" QB isn't a starter next year. Guess I was wrong about him, since 95% of his other offers out at this point are to those players with more melanin. There's 3 whites he's offered for 2018 that I'm aware of.

    (Another) WR commits to UCLA. Pretty shocking. When's the last time UCLA even played a White WR, let alone recruiting two in the same class?

    Loaded class for Iowa! Big upgrade for Petras in choosing The Hawkeyes over Oregon St .

    This recruit slipped my radar, and, apparently, almost all major program's radar as well, including Ohio State (the state he's from).

    I mean, who in their right mind would want a 6'5", 200lb, 4.48/40 WR? Aren't these programs always talking about wanting size and speed at the WR position?

    3-Star WR commits to Purdue

    He's the wrong color...Ohio State no longer recruits white WR's....+ he gets a 1 Star penalty for being melanin deficient

    3-Star White UCLA DT told he's "no longer a fit" from the new coaching staff right before he was going to sign with them today. Too White?

    Will Honas, the No. 1 JUCO ILB in the country commits to Scott Frost and Nebraska. He'll be a Day 1 starter. Just watch his hudl film on his rivals profile!! The kid flies around. Instant impact type of kid. It's been awhile since I have seen a film of an LB with his speed and quickness.

    Some nice finds y'all! Calvert & Peterson should make an early impact! That's some impressive film on LB Honas....a Punisher & Finisher w some serious wheels! Just what the Cornhuskers need to fix putrid defense!

    Looking at the Strong side Defensive End prospects had me curious...Checking the Top 40
    #7 Max Wright (Katy TX) 6'-4" 270 to Texas A&M...(been on recruiting radar since Soph.)
    #8 Aiden Hutchinson (MI) 6'-6" 260 to Michigan ...(was his Dad Steve who played in the NFL many years?)
    #9 Devin O'Rourke (IL) .....Northwestern
    #16 Draco Bynum (OR) ......Washington
    #20 Judge Culpepper (from FL) 6'-5" 256.....to Penn State (Dad Brad played 9 seasons in NFL)
    #23 Boyd Dietzen (WI) ....Wisconsin
    #25 Jules Welschof *Germany* 6'-6" 248 to Michigan
    #33 Michael Matus (Katy TX) .... Arizona State
    #40 Nick Alftin (CA) 6-6" 245 . ...Cal

    Like to say im surprised by that but im not. Hopefully this Illinois team is again a bottom dweller in 18 and Hatie Smiff gets axed.

    Maldonado signs with Cal, giving them seven palefaces on defense for their 2018 class.

    Update on Jake Chisholm. Finished his senior season with 2300 yards and 33TDs and 1st team KY All State. Still not good enough for an offer! His 247 recruiting page has him at 167lbs whereas Courier Journal has him at 5'9 185. Pretty big difference in weight! Supposedly EKU, Cincy, Wofford, and Navy showing interest. Perfect example of a talented skill position player getting screwed by the Caste System and will most likely be a walk on if he chooses to pursue football at next level.

    I’m making an updated list on the running backs for 2018 and saw that Jake signed with Dayton.......Not a bad place at all, but would’ve been nice to see a little more high profile of a school with his credentials.....

    Thanks for the update, Dayton not a bad place to end up as a white athlete. Had a buddy a few years back that played CB for The Flyers. But yes with his credentials it would have been nice to see him at FBS level. At least He'll continue to play on the gridiron.

    Badgers land Athlete John Torchio from California. Unfortunately he’s a walk on. He turned down scholarship offers from Cal,SaN Diego St, and San Jose St amongst others. Would have personally liked to have seen him sign with Cal.

    Badgers already pretty deep at Safety and signed 2 afflete safeties (one named Rachad Wildgoose Jr, judging by his name he’s borderline retarded or at least his single mom is)as well for 18 class.
