    Your Team's #1 recruit

    So, everyone's finishing up their recruiting classes and stuff, but I'm interested to see who everyone thinks their top recruit is? Who's going to be your next great All-American or maybe your conference's freshman of the year next season? Just one...which one player is going to have the biggest impact right away or relatively quickly?

    I'll start....

    WR Broc Thompson, Ben Davis HS (Indianapolis, IN)
    6'2", 173

    Broc Thompson is the son of former MLB outfielder Ryan Thompson and the younger brother of former Ohio State and current NBA G-League center Trevor Thompson.

    This kid looks exceptionally talented (great route runner, really fights for the ball) and only got passed over by some of the "big boys" because he's not huge. Had a few G5 offers (Utah State, Ball State, late offer from Memphis), originally committed to Ball State, but when he didn't sign early with them, things got a bit "weird" and we were able to swoop in and get him. The #1 receiver (setting most of the school receiving records) at the #1 school in Indiana that plays in one of the toughest conferences in the country ( ... r-2016.htm). Ben Davis HS won the 6A (top level) state championship game this year, a game where Broc Thompson caught for 109 yards and 3 TDs on 5 catches: ... 0FINAL.pdf
    Ben Davis HS is ranked by MaxPreps and USA Today as one of the top HS football teams in the country this last year (MaxPreps Xcellent 25 - ranked #6, USA Today #8)

    Here's some more info on him: ... s-genuine/

    It's hard to say for A&T, IMHO.

    Our impact players next season will be on the defensive side of the ball.

    This kid will is the likely replacement for our Defensive MVP Jeremy Taylor:

    Zareik Rush, OLB, 6-2, 205, Greensboro, NC (Dudley HS)
    We were able to get this kid from Howard and some FBS/P-5 looks. He was a 2-way player (RB/OLB) for Dudley High School (Greensboro, NC) and I expect him to play our coveted rover position and look like a Cam Chancellor/Keanu Neal clone. He has the physical tools to start as a true freshman, but we'll see in 6 months.

    As far as our transfers, this kid from N. Illinois should help us have the best FCS D Line arguably in 2018:

    Justin Nwachukwu, DL, 6-1, 290, Wake Forest, NC (Northern Illinois Transfer/Heritage HS)

    Justin has the chance to start as our 3-tech DL next to Julian McKnight. We already are one of the best at stopping the run, but if Justin can live up to his potential, ECU and/or Jacksonville State will have a really hard time running the ball on us.

    I might be cheating since hes a transfer, but Im going RB Billy Ray McCrary III who transfers to ACU from Cal. Hes 510 190 and has got 4.3 speed and will be a fantastic change of pace back to Tracy James who is 511 220.

    The one that studies hard, and embraces the system and coaches methods, keeps his nose clean, embraces the cadet life, and is a team player. Could be any one of them. It could be the fastest, or strongest, or biggest player, but may not be.

I guess you should expect it from a career high school coach. Who btw, underachieved in high school. What a loser.

    Josh Walker 6'1" 305# DT out of IMG Academy. Per 247sports, 3rd highest rated signee in FCS this year. Not sure how we got him, but He is the real deal.

    On paper? Might be Mateo Jackson, a 6'2"/220 LB out of Richmond, VA.

    The '18 signee that might HAVE to perform early is Que Reid, a safety out of North Carolina. Lot to replace with the 2 AAs graduating.

    ElCid and McNeese72 both have an outstanding perspective on this question.

    By my count, Dartmouth had a school-record commits with FBS offers (and not all from the military academies) this season.

    The only guy with a BCS offer was offensive lineman Calvin Atkeson. So he's my nominee.
