    On "flipping" - the old days of the gentlemen's agreement is long gone. If a kid commits to School A, that might just make School B and C recruit him that much harder. The Early signing date was supposed to address that, but all it did was move up the timetable and make schools try that harder to flip key recruits. If a kid is truly 100% committed, great. but, if a kid (or his parents.......) starts having second thoughts, and School B is putting on a big push, then it's not that hard to understand why kids might flip.

    Imagine being a Purdue commitment, then watching Purdue play against the Gophers last week. Or conversely, imagine being a Gopher commit, and watching the Illinois game. I'm actually surprised there isn't more flipping going on.

    I’m not sure if this was ever discussed but has there been any chatter about Witt being recruited as a TE? His rivals video has a fair amount of footage of him there.

    Seriously. What does Iowa have that his home state of Minnesota doesn't have?

    Is this a joke or no?

    I can't fault kids for looking at other schools but to be honest Minnesota football isn't a big hotbed so I don't get too concerned with missing out on in state talent.

    I make a point of not getting overly invested in a recruit until after signing day at the earliest and even then it is pretty pointless to project much until they get on campus and actually prove they can play. Stinks when guys, especially local ones, decommit but it is what it is.

    There are a lot of solid football players in this state but the true impact guys are few and far between so yeah odds are a kid like Witt wasn't going to be a star but he could of been a very good player potentially. All part of recruiting, guys "commit" then change their mind, some come back some move on....

    He has now tweeted out offers from Ohio, NDSU, Wyoming, and Northern Iowa. Interesting social media behavior right away... is this spiteful?
