We managed to pull in one of our best recent classes coming off a 6-7 record where the only thing that changed was the inclusion of impact transfers and a change of OC to Lashlee and change of WR coach to Likens. The key point here is that we got all of our 2021 commits before the season even started. This is all while the coaches had to sell the potential success of the new team which could potentially lead to a 10 win season. Now almost everything seems to be going really well and we are well on our way to securing a 9-2 or 10-1 record. Every game so far has been nationally televised and we are a strong presence in college football as a top 3(top 2 if not for ND this year) team in the ACC. Despite all of this, not a single high profile commit has been swayed to join the movement. I'm specifically looking at the Florida CBs committed to schools that are much worse off than us right now. Including Damarius McGhee committed to Tennessee, Omarion Cooper and Kevin Knowles committed to the awful FSU, among other flip candidates. To make it worse Markevious Brown looks to be heading elsewhere and Tim Burns just decommitted giving us a total of 0 CBs in the class. I'm just curious what recruits are thinking that makes them not want to play for us, given our lack of corner depth and their ability to come in and play early.
