    Just a quick glance at things but it seems this is the worst signing day ever. Almost no skill wide receivers going to any major college conference schools. I guess the end is closer than I thought. Basically the big time programs look like this. White kickers, O lineman , interior D lineman and drop back QB's and I guess ball boys. Makes me physically ill.

    Jake Funk signed with Maryland as a RB. He had 2,650 yards and 57 TDs as a senior. The 57 TDs was a state record. He scored 7 TDs in the state championship game! According to their message board the program is excited to have him. Though he is "rated" below their other two RB recruits who are real athletes. Also the only two D1 programs that offered him a scholarship were MD and Wisconsin. Some of the posters on the message board were perplexed that he only had 2 D1 offers despite his eye-popping high school career. How could that have happened? Oh, wait, nevermind...

    It's been like this for awhile, it's nothing new or earth shattering that caste template is being adhered to strictly.

    It looks like all of the recruiting sites are already onto 2017 - it's hard tom stop an industry that just keeps on chugging along spewing out nonsense.

    Thanks for the breakdowns Celticdb! I was looking through the lists and decided I don't have the time or energy for a comprehensive breakdown.

    Spaziani is an idiot - he recruited quoatabacks last year and they sucked. Luckily Towles decided to transfer to BC for a year.

    Just an FYI, but I've found that 247sports.com is the best and easiest way to do research. If you click on a team, it will display all of their committed recruits and include a thumbnail image of their face. I'm guessing that about 95% of the time, they have an image. Rivals and Scout are tedious and often require you to create an account for additional access/info.

    Northwestern had only a couple of walk on additions to their 2016 class, a long-snapper and a WR from Texas who looks (performance and size-wise) like a clone of Jeremy Ebert.

    How this (White) player (6', 180lbs, 4.35/40) didn't receive a single offer is further proof of an entrenched and deliberate Caste system against White players.

    Here's his senior highlights:

    Spaziani recruited another negro QB this year. This guy is a nut,BC deserves better. Hopefully Towles has a good year. Decent recruiting class by BC besides Spazos creepy crush on dark QBs..

    Thank you CDB15. Great to see West Virginia, a state that is 90%+ Anglo non-Hispanic White, and very blue collar rough around the edges, finally actually recruit some White football players. Their recruits are from WV and the bordering states of OH and PA. There is obviously a huge amount of White football talent that is produced in OH and PA every year. WVU has a gold mine of talented White recruits if they would just tap into it. Maybe this year will be the beginning of a trend.

    Well, Holgorsen better win at least 8 or 9 games this year, otherwise the trend will once again be for mining "coal"... just not the kind that's typically mined in West Virginia. The AD refused to give him a contract extension after he lost the final regular season game to K-State, so he has only one year left on his contract. The AD that hired him took a job with the NCAA. Holgorsen's on thin ice, unfortunately. Winning at least 8 games in the BIG 12 won't be easy.

    Agree with both of you. Holgerson seems like a decent coach and recruiter. Any program should recruit its home state and surrounding states for talent first,it's a no brainer. Lets hope WVU has a good season. We could use a team to root for in the Dark Big 12!

    On a side note I've been skimming recruiting lists the last few days and I've come across quite a few black athletes from Bellevue,Washington a rich suburb of Seattle. A quick Google search says the town of 100,000 people is only3% black yet I've seen about six or so black athletes from the town with D1 offers. So even in a white majority town by a HUGE margin no white boys recruited. Just shows how far the caste system will go to discover real affletes..

    10. Theo Dawson RB 6'0 215(WY) *He's LDS won't see field until 2018
    11. Isaac Leppke QB 6'4 180 (CA)
    12. Cooper Rothe K (CO)

    Wyoming = B

    Miami Ohio

    1. Trent Maynard OT 6'6 305 (IN)
    2. Danny Godlevske C 6'3 275 (IN)
    3. Tommy Doyle OT 6'7 260 (MN)
    4. Noah Wezensky QB 6'3 190 (IN)

    I still can't get over how MAC coaches screw over white players once they move on from the MAC coaching jobs - Brian Kelly, Dave Doeren and Butch Jones are all guilty of building their success on the backs of white athletes only to betray them as they move up the coaching ladder.

    Sadly these caste clowns see it as the logical next step in their careers. They don't appreciate the players who helped launch their careers. They only think more athletic= more blacks on their teams. The amount of people who think like this is troubling. It's ok to say Blacks are better athletes and whites are not. But it's not ok to say Whites are intellectually superior to Blacks?!

    Kliff Kingsbury is another coach who deserves to be called out. He's a former Player turned full blown caste whore. His recruiting classes have been pathetic since he's taken over at Texas Tech, Another sellout!
