Yep

Seebs:

Yes - but the secret commits ... oh the secret commits are like 50.


parallaxpig:

Should we be concerned?

Seriously, in the beginning of March? I’m sure a lot of kids are waiting to see how the team plays this season, as they should and as I would as well.

Appalachian State is currently ahead of us, so I for one am very concerned!

Seriously though, let’s see how we are doing going into the start of the season around September.

Concerned?? Well, the coaching staff is wanting some soon, it just helps build momentum. Most expect us to get 4-6 by summer camp time, and 10ish by the staff of the season, I hope they're correct.

Any concern that we don't have one in-state buy in yet?

Nope, wait until Junish......if not before. Some years you have Nolands/Jackson's that commit right away, some years you don't.

Exactly.  So far we have not played a single down in a single game.  What are they going to commit too?  Rah Rah is cool in the offseason and attitude will only go so far.  At some point, players want to see what you're really going to do.  Arkansas isn't Clemson or SMU.  CCM will have to make his mark on the field and build it his way.  A great budget and facilities are critical, but players want to see what he can do here.

PygmalionEffect2:

That is to be expected with the change in coaching staffs.  Now if we are still relatively low come August, then you can worry.

Fire Coach Morris! :P

Vantage 8 dude:

Thing is that if past patterns hold then there very well may be several days where there are a group of kids who commit fairly close together. I wouldn't be surprised if this tendency doesn't hold true this time around.

 Pretty good sign that you're only the 13th dude to type this. The first 12 were within 5 days of his announcement. ;)

Cure:

Just got the 2nd one in.

TomHog, where is the stickied thread on the 2019 commits?  We have three commits, and no thread.

Not any more! And THE Ohio State University is behind us.. of course, I don't expect that 2nd part to last for long. They have 2 4 stars committed to our 3 3s.

Pig in the Pokey:

we are 33rd right now and people are complaining??

Indubitably

I think a lot of people were stressing that we didn’t have a single in state commit yet either given the large haul we are trying to get this year, and should have an advantage toward. Hopefully Malik Chavis doused those flames, not that it matters for anything of course.

redeye:

It probably won't happen this season, but our recruiting would improve greatly if we could just beat Alabama once.  Since Saban won his first national title at Alabama, the Crimson Tide has only lost to the following teams: South Carolina, LSU 2X, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Ole Miss 2X, Texas A&M, Auburn 3X and Clemson.  There's a lot of chicken/egg and other uncertainties on how much it's helped, but I think you could argue that all of these schools have benefited in recruiting some after beating Alabama.  South Carolina, Ole Miss and Texas A&M have probably benefited the most, although Auburn's up there too, thanks to winning it's high profile game with Alabama 3 times over this span.

You could argue that if we can beat Alabama, then we've already arrived.  Which is fair, but Arkansas has beaten 4 teams that beat Alabama in the same season (South Carolina, LSU and Ole Miss twice), so I do think it's possible without competing for national championships.
