Look its clear hes not a 1 for 1 replacement. Blake especially looked like a high end guy but he want to Harvard in his original class '19, so it's hard to really get upset about that kind of flip.No, I am acting like SU lost three major offensive recruits in the past month who were positioned to be extremely important for the program and have now settled upon another player who is decidedly less well regarded. This does not mean the kid cannot play and he may even end up having a better career than one or more of the athletes who recently flipped but I would say this is the definition of a Plan B...or C.
Clearly I would still like to have Parlette and Mahar on board, who wouldn't. But when you lose two top 50 kids and replace one of them with a kid ranked #81 I find that hard to see it has a B or C level recruit/replacement. As someone who has followed SU football since the early 90s I know what a B and C level recruit looks like.
