We got a commitment tonight from TE Slayton Wild from Forrest High in Chapel Hill TN. Tn/Ky Allstar and semifinalist for Mr Football lineman. 6'3" 220. Good athlete. I like him.
He is commit #7.

Looks versatile, quick, physical. TE looks most likely, perhaps LB.

FYI - saw Slayton Wild at Chatty yesterday decked out in Wofford gear. He apparently made huge game winning catch in playoffs Friday night.
We have offered (this summer actually) DE Joe Kane from Heritage High in Wake Forest NC. 6'3" 255. He is the son of former Terrier Tim Kane who played center. Like his dad, he has a big motor and great technique (uses his hand well). He camped with us this summer and we offered him as his first offer. He is now getting interest from App (no surprise) and Duke, as well UVA and VaTech. If he has his dad's sense of humor and personality, he will add as much in the locker room as on the field. Hope we get him.

Looks like a good one. Nice size, quick, mean streak. Good program and coaching. Like the way he moves, particularly when he goes hunting in the run lanes for someone to flatten, a la Demmel, Wahrby, Jacon-Duffy, et al ... our offense thrives on that. Had several offers, including Fordham.

With the success our team has had this year, and the strong group of returnees we will have, hopefully we can turn 2017's recruiting class into one of the strongest EVER. Why not be a part of a great team, group of teammates, and educational institution?

FYI - looks like UConn has come in and offered DL commit Alex Wilcox. Nothing indicates he is interested in it or has accepted.
At least it's nice to know we are going after the right guys. Hope he stays in our fold with his brother. This playoff run has to help.

I was thinking the same thing. Recruits that we are going after and are undecided have to be paying attention to this and thinking 'Man, I wanna be a part of THAT program!'. Hope we land some big fish with this deep playoff run.

I believe I would nickname him"Pancake Hall" because there are few left standing when he gets through with them!

Wow, Joe is truly a man among boys. He looks like he could step in right now and play.

Bad news: the Wilcox twins have de-committed from us and have opened their recruitment again. The Tweet I saw says they want to make sure they are making the right decision for them. I can only assume this has something to do with UConn and other FCS schools coming calling. Not unusual. Hope we get them.

At this time of the year there really aren't "commitments"
