Waters, Boyd (or Hamilton), Singleton and Crayton and then call it a wrap.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
This. This is my dream scenario.

well great, now im gonna do another sunday football watching day clicking refresh hoping for a fourth verbal
JMO, but there should only be a few kids left that the staff should allow to commit. Waters/a JUCO QB, Crayton, Boyd/Hamilton/Lemelle and Singleton. If you miss out on one of those (outside of the EE slot), you should just save it for an EE next year. There will be a numbers crunch next year, even if kids leave early/transfer.
I think that the future classes are capped at 15. I do not know if EEs can fill out the numbers from previous classes less than 15, but I thought it was a use it or lose it to handicap recruiting even more. This is the only year that EEs can really be utilized to fill out the roster until the end of sanctions. It has been since August that I read the restrictions so I hope I am wrong.
so this essentially eliminated Wimberly as a part of this class now, correct? Since that last EE spot is going to go to Waters or another JUCO QB. I'm happy we won't be taking a RB in 2013 and can take another in 2014. Also, I would have liked for Sanders to have gotten the EE offer but Smith does have a couple more years to play than him. Very big corner, which is nice. Waters, Hamilton, and one more solid corner (Singleton, Willis, etc.) and we're about done. Incredible what this staff has done. 3rd ranked class in the B1G? Given our circumstances? Nothing short of amazing.
EE's will be important for us going forward as we'll. We are likely not going to use 15 next year due to the 65 limitation and modest senior class graduating. So you will see us taking EE's to use the rest of the 15 from the 14 class the following January. taking 20 this year is smart in that regard in that it allows you to manage the 15 limitation in future years through EEs so we have a lower likelihood of falling below having 65 scholarship kids on the roster. If we don't do this between a large graduating class, injuries, etc. we could easily end up below 65 in the later years of the sanctions.
We can take more EE,'s. EE's can count against either class. 12 or 13. It matters only in our desire to maximize the number of kids we take this year. We can apply 5 EE's to last year.
Isn't it FOUR commits?
That's what I heard.
Who's number 4?
Dominate The State
Not sure. One of the recruiting interns tweeted that there were four commits and Hack tweeted asking who the fourth was and she hasn't responded. So, either she doesn't know how to count or there is a fourth. Time will tell.
Maybe Waters' official at K State didn't go to well?
But probably not...yet
Josh Moyer @ESPNJoshMoyer
For those wondering, CB Deondre Singleton (also here for an official) said he wants to first talk over any kind of commitment with his fam.
Happy about both. I can finally watch Issah film again. I refused to do it before. Didn't want to get my hopes up.
