  1. Could you guys please post the graduation/class year of these guys? I think this information should always be included any time you are writing about a recruit.

  2. I too would like the class year for the recruits. Some of these are not ranked by the services, but yet are being highly recruited by big name programs. This tells me they’re early enough in the process to have not been worked into the rankings. Knowing their class year would help understand that aspect of it. That said, it’s a minor thing, and I really enjoy these profiles. Anybody want to have a party at Nick’s on signing day this November?

    Anybody else think it was weird seeing ex-Boiler Brian Cardinal turn up in the finals for the Mavs? Have to give him credit, he’s played a long time and made the plays they needed when he got in.
