Class of 2016? Does that mean they just finished the 8th grade?
Some of the 2016 guys already have offers. It's not official but a 2015 North Carolina kid has "committed" to USC. LSU has already offered two 2015 kids.
The recruiting cycle has sped up way too fast. Schools have to get in on these kids early or they feel they are being dissed. As lsufanva said in another thread, "The bull is out of the barn..."
College coaches just have to keep up and play the game that is being dictated to them.
