    I always wonder what’s going through the heads of the coaching staff in scouting players like Charlie Stramel for example. Obviously a high end player doing well at the ntdp, but with the backlog of forward recruits coming in when he would be slated to come in, does Bob and co. just not even make an attempt at the kid? I mean if you give him your pitch and he wants to be a gopher but there’s just no room, what then? Obviously there’s some kids you make room for but I’m not sure coaches want to gain the reputation that they just revoke your commitment once they find a shinier toy.

    Where I’m going with this is do coaches at top tier programs like the U extend offers to all high end recruits knowing that they won’t be able to roster all of them?

    Just thinking out loud.
