Kansas may get Locke, but there's absolutely no evidence out there that they lead "by a lot." Noah Locke is not a top 10 kid who can wait and know that Kansas will find a spot for him--if he knows where that's where he wants to go, or even strongly believes it, he's jumping on that offer now before it goes away.
We may finish second for Iggy, but one of the two most recent "proverbial long recruitment(s)" we were involved in was Brandon Johns. We didn't finish second in that one. Believing Iggy is trending badly is simply pessimism, not evidence based.
There hasn't been much buzz about Hunter Tyson lately. However, since the guys we've offered (Ahrens, Washington) or gotten involved with (Kopp) are rated similarly, if not better than Tyson in many services, I'm not sure how getting one instead of Tyson bumps the class downward.
