Sorry if my post came off as mysterious. I wasn't so concerned with not revealing who Perry was inquiring about, but I don't want to publicly insult the upper weight blue chipper that has not panned out.
Just covering all my bases down low.
No problem! Hopefully Wyoming can fit in Templeman, Mendenhall, and Stroh into their lineups as all three have had fantastic redshirt years. Wyoming has a promising young team with those three, Cox, McCulley, and blue chip recruit Zach Beard coming in.
I think Waters has seen his last days of 125, and a rs year to get acclimated to a higher weight, as well as a stronger team in 2015, are the main reasons. I asked Schavrien what he was weighing these days, and he said 155-160. The other coach joked, "about the same as Waters." I'd love to see him jump to 141, ala Oliver, and kick some tail.
I would be willing to bet that if you broke down top 100 recruits from each state in the past 10 years, you would find far more correlation between national tournament results and College success than state of origin and college success.
I would also be willing to bet that the small states would be scattered throughout the big states for % of top 100 recruits that panned out in college.
The Ashmores may have flopped at OSU but so did Frishkorn, Benefiel, Meade, White, Bailey, Rupp and many others over that 5 year stretch. Actual data would lead much more to a conclusion that the flopping was due to program wide issues since it showed up across all states of origin over that 5 year stretch.
Without looking at actual data you cannot claim something is a trend, and I don't believe the data would support it if you looked.
