    I think it could be a good thing for the G5 schools in some ways. They guys that commit and sign early to the G5 schools that are rated highly will already be sign which could help. Since they have signed already they wont have months for other schools to recruit and flip them at the last minute. Of course there is the other side of that coin too if they sign early to the P5 schools the G5 school will then face that same situation of hoping to flip players.

    although if I had to guess, I would say that you get more kids that flip last minute from g5 to p5 than the other way around.

    No you're correct but there is always hope right?

    ha. yeah. I can think of a couple players that we lost to UGA last second. Would have been nice if we could have locked them down first so that UGA couldn't come around after they missed out on their guys.

    The upper-end 3 star guys aren't going to sign early with a G5...they're going to wait until February to see if one of the big boys call.

    Some of the less coveted players we might have a use for...sure.

    Certainly can't hurt G5 programs.

    Though correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Darion Anderson committed to UGA before they basically left him in read after he got injured, which is what caused him to decommit?

    I'll be interested to see how this plays out in the G5 world. I imagine guys like Hampton McConnell would sign early, he was pretty set on his decision to play for us the moment he committed. But yeah I agree your borderline G5 / P5 guys probably aren't signing early to a G5.

    IMO where this would benefit us is getting a guy like Darrynton Evans that eventually flipped to App, despite his .74 ranking that kid has a TON of talent. It would have been nice to have locked him up early.

    Would that allow JUCO guys to enroll in January?

    That would change spring practice, I think.
