Saturday marks 1 year since our last Bball commitment (AJH 10/13/11).


This is the largest gap in commitments going back many years. I know some are of the opinion that this is a good thing. That CMP is allowing things to develop in these upcoming classes and not filling spots too early. To a certain extent, I agree. It is smart to hold a spot or two for late bloomers or positions that become more critical as the roster unfolds. But I also think there is a positive to having one of your top targets jump on board (eg. Bryson) and get the ball rolling. I'm sure I'm just a little antsy, but it is surprising that with the number of offers CMP has extended, that no one has pulled the trigger yet. It almost seems like Painter is controlling the timing of the commitments in 2014 (and beyond). Maybe the Willis fiasco has changed his approach? Remember about a year ago, Vince Edwards was rumored to be a imminent commitment. His Mom's twitter handle was FutureBoilerMom. That was hot and heavy and then squashed really quickly. Again, IMO, CMP put the brakes on there. This is a pretty risky approach because some of these recruits are gaining more and more attention, and there is a chance we could be shut out on this extremely critical 2014 class. For now, I'm going to trust in Painter's judgement and show some patience. But I'll admit, I'm getting nervous.
