Fact: Iowa should feel confident about Cadin Proctor landing

Rival National Recruitment Director Adam Gorny And National Recruitment Analyst Clint Cosgrove With Eric Lamars And from NittanyNation.com Jason Higgins 1standTenFlorida.com addresses three issues and determines whether they believe each statement is FACT or FICTION.

1. Iowa should still feel confident in landing five-star offensive tackle Cadin Proctor.

Gorni acceptance: FACT. If Xavier Noankapa had ended up somewhere else, if he hadn’t been a prospect for the state, if Iowa hadn’t created an offensive lineman as well as arguably no program in the country, I could certainly have seen Cadin Proctor leave the state. All national power houses are calling. But all of the above is true and that’s why Proctor is starting to get more serious about things, so the hockey players look their best. There will be teams visiting Alabama. Crimson Tide likes him a lot, it’s hard to say when the coach Nick Soap And his staff prefers someone and an inspection there would be great. But Iowa really needs to take its chances right now.

Cosgrove reception: FACT. You rarely think of leading Iowa for a prospect that is a top target for Alabama, Oregon, Georgia and Notre Dame. However, the situation surrounding the country’s No. 1 OT potential makes this situation a little different. Coming from Proctor Iowa, the Hawkeys consistently showcase NFL offensive line talent and his former teammate Javier Nawankpa, who could also be a good friend, is already in Iowa. I see Proctor’s appointment follows a similar path to that of Nawankpa, who could have gone anywhere in the country, but in the end chose to stay home and play for Ivory.

2. It is still wise for college coaches to have a “no-visit” policy for committed players.

Gorni acceptance: Fiction. I understand this is a complex subject and deserves much more detailed discussion and explanation than a paragraph but I am going to the employer in this example. Trainers are paid millions of dollars and go through the recruitment process every year. For a recruiter, often without a great support system or without understanding the internal workings of the recruitment process, they can do it once, which means to see all the schools, to meet all the coaches, to meet all the academic people, a shot for the game day experience. . , Etc. Players are most likely to be denied that opportunity and forced to stay committed to a school. It can take a long time for players to be committed and then both sides finally shake when classes have to be put together. I certainly understand why coaches want a no-visit policy after a promise. I don’t think it serves too much of a possibility.

Acceptance of Lamars: FACT. Putting my personnel department cap here, I realize that every situation is different, but in general something like a “no-visit” policy is no-brainer for me after being committed to a program. There has to be some kind of understanding between prospects and staff that once you are committed, you lock in, okay if you want to look around, we have to look around too. I fully understand if a young person thinks that he has committed too soon and he wants to see other programs. There is no problem with that, but as soon as it happens employees have to protect themselves and hire others to fill those positions. Worse things can happen, you have an “A” chance and he wants to go somewhere else, you stay true to him and don’t hire others for his place. Then one month before National Signing Day Prospect “A” informs you that he will change his promise and you do not have the same option as the program you got a few months ago. Where you could work on a potential “B” on your board for a promise, now you’re working on a potential “E” and a potential “E” usually fires you. Those possibilities are no crime but it’s reality.


3. In the Florida 2023 class, two of the top four cornerbacks, if not three, have a real chance to land.

AJ Harris

Gorni acceptance: Fiction. I could buy two – AJ Harris and Tony Mitchell – but I haven’t sold to Cormani McClean yet. Florida is running ahead of Harris after another excellent tour there recently and I would say Texas is at the top with A&M for the Gators and Georgia Mitchell. Florida has a great opportunity to land both of these possibilities from the state of Alabama. But pulling McClean out of Alabama is going to be very difficult and Ohio State is probably in second place. The Gators will be in it because McClean is a local kid but I’d be surprised if that happened.

Receipt of Higgins: FACT. Relationships about recruitment and 52 years old Corey Raymond They have Raymond from New Iberia, La. Not only the assistant head coach / cornerbacks coach and the top CB coach in America but also the top hiring coach in his position. The reason Florida Corman McClain, AJ Harris and Tony Mitchell are the leaders of the club house is simple – coach Corey Raymond.
