WVU's loss is BC's gain and more Ryan stuff
Recruiting is a delicate dance. Coaches and players flirt but are always hedging and keeping options open. Take the case of incoming RB Jerry Kelly. West Virginia showed real interest in him until their coaching change. Fortunately for Kelly and BC, we stepped into the picture and offered him a scholarship.
Peter King generated plenty of debate following his piece about Matt Ryan. I can't gaurantee that Ryan will be a star, but I think the criticism of him has been overly harsh. Having watched nearly every throw of his college career, I am confident he has the arm and accuracy to be an NFL quarterback. His interceptions and completion percentage were much more a product of our talent and scheme.
