Is this real? Does BYU have a top 10 recruiting class for next year?

They will end up in the 60's when all is said and done.

I believe it will be better than that unless we get a lot of transfers and can't sign a lot of kids.

Its only because BYU already has 9 commits--but none of them are above a 3-star recruit and the average is around 2.3. Its early and the ratings will change, so don't get excited yet. :lol:

I'm wondering if Zaddock Dinkelmann is a guy who potentially could be a dark horse if McKee goes elsewhere. His twitter feed said he was "packing for Provo" this past Sunday. 24/7 says he has offers from LSU, Texas, and ULM with medium interest from UTSA (predicted to get him) and Alabama. He ranks 3 or 4 stars depending on the site.

Top 300 list. I count 1 commit and 12 others listing BYU. Hopefully we can get a few of these.
