More recruiting defections
Following on the decommitment of Sam Grant, running back Akeel Lynch announced that he will not be attending BC. With Jaxon Hood taking other visits and Steven Daniels rumored to be having NCAA admissions issues, Spaz finds himself with multiple holes in his already small recruiting class. I have never been one to get worked up about recruiting rankings. I do get concerned about roster management. I also think this raises questions about Spaz and his staff's approaching to recruiting. Spaz has two weeks to fill these holes and prove that he can still sell BC to waivering recruits.
This is Spaz's fourth recruiting class. His defenders have been pointing towards it for two years. They said that a smaller class would allow Spaz to focus on quality. They also said he would use the extra time to really hone in on players who fit at BC. Now it looks like that time was wasted. While I am sure the losing season hurt his message, a good salesman would use the losses as a chance for players to make an immediate impact.
Finally the question needs to be asked: if Spaz isn't winning on the field and isn't closing on recruits, how can Gene keep saying he doing a great job? It doesn't look like many members of this recruiting class will help Spaz this season, but if he doesn't recruit well it makes the rebuilding job post-Spaz that much harder.
