One thing I really don't pay any attention to is those damn ranking services. Remember WR Justin Jefferson was a 2* prospect out of HS and look how that turned out 111 receptions, 18 TD's later. Welcome to the fam Dakota Mitchell now get into the weight program get a little bigger and do some damage.

Hope he gets better size which he should.

That's about as impressive an offer list as I've seen for a DB, no matter the number of stars next to their name. Watch him be an impact player in our secondary as a Sophomore.

Impressive offer list! Every team in the top 10 wants him. How is he only a 3 star?

Still got a year to go to improve the star thing. A lot if this is projection.

I was wondering when the floodgates would start opening. With this Wahan-Chinese virus causing a complete shut down of sports in ???? there is nothing else for these HS athletes to do except commit.
