2. FutureCasts gave seven potential customers four stars.
Commitment season is upon us. A series of new commitments will be made between now and the end of July, and many of them will be 4-star commitments. Here are some new FutureCast predictions for some of the four stars that are likely to emerge in the coming weeks.
Christian Hamilton: The Rivals250 receiver outside of the Charlotte area is expected to be up and running this Friday, and North Carolina seems to be the team to beat. Tar Heels is his most recent visit and he has dozens of close connections with current players, rookies and coaching staff.
Dante Reno: South Carolina has been hot on the recruiting road, and the Gamecocks are in a great position with Reno. The 2024 Rivals250 quarterback and the son of head coach Yale Tony Reno has been to the Columbia campus a number of times this spring and summer and – although he hasn’t set a decision date – it looks like they will fulfill his pledge when the decision is announced.
Dashawn Womack: Womack made an official visit Georgia, Ole Miss, Maryland, LSU and Oregon, but it looks like the defending national champions were only in the driver’s seat a few weeks ago. Now it looks like momentum is on the side of SEC West rival LSU.
Rico Walker: Walker didn’t set a commit date, but North Carolina seems to be the clear leader for four stars in the state. MarylandJackson State, Auburn and Tennessee are also in the mix, but they’re all chasing North Carolina at this point.
Semaj Bridgeman: Michigan hosted Bridgeman for an official visit earlier this month and werewolves knocked him out of the park. Georgia, Rutgers and South Carolina are above him, but this is Michigan’s race to lose.
Ronan Hanafin: Hanafin took her time in the recruitment process but made an official visit Alabama, Boston College, Clemson and Notre Dame this month. Notre Dame was poised to get her commitment when the time came, but Clemson didn’t make the decision easy.
David Hobbs: After blowing up at Camp Charlotte Rivals this spring, Hobbs has seen his hiring explode with big offers. He made an official visit North Carolina and Auburn and visited informally Alabama, Penn State and Tennessee. For now, it looks like Tar Heels will get his pledge when he makes his announcement.
3. ACC announces new scheduling format.
On Tuesday, the ACC announced that it will be transitioning to a new schedule format starting with the 2023 season. Now each team in the conference has three permanent opponents and will rotate through the rest of the team. conference twice every four years. Checking out the top five fixed matchups will have the biggest recruiting implications.
Seminoles and Hurricanes have been fighting on the recruiting path to find prospects for a long time. Now, in the NIL era, it seems the heat of this competition has grown to 11. Recruiters will flock to the game every year and the results and atmosphere will almost certainly affect the game. affects where these players end up.
It’s not a traditional showdown like some of the others on this list, but every time the Tigers and the Beehives compete, it’s a national event. Players from all over the country and in the two Southeastern states have been keeping a close eye on these two shows and will definitely take the time to come watch this game live.
Tar Heels and Wolfpack, about 30 minutes apart, have been battling to find new recruits since the founding of the ACC. At different times each program was raised while the other was down and vice versa. Every major hiring in the state is pursued by these two programs at one point or another. That will continue as this traditional rivalry remains a permanent fixture in the ACC.
The Wolfpack has become a major thorn in the side for the Tigers in recent years, and we’re fortunate that this budding rivalry will continue. The Tigers have done well in North Carolina state recruiting history, but NC State has been building some recruiting hype of its own, and Wolfpack hopes they can successfully complete this recruiting class.
The Hokies and Cavaliers both have new head coaches, but they know how important it is to win this historic head-to-head matchup. Each program’s renewed focus on in-state recruiting will increase in intensity on game day. Expect dozens of in-state rookies to be available when this game launches this fall.
