Rival National Recruitment Director Adam Gorny With National Recruitment Analysts Nick Harris And Ryan Wright And Tom Cockart HawkeyeReport.com addresses three issues and determines whether they believe each statement to be FACT or FICTION.
1. Alabama committed Eli Holstein will win more national titles than any five-star QB in the 2023 class.
Gorni acceptance: FACT. History favors Eli Holstein because Alabama has won three of the last seven national championships and the four stars from Zachary, La, are certainly talented enough to bring Crimson Tide back to the Promised Land. I don’t think Holstein is as talented as the four five-star quarterbacks in this class but has recruited so incredibly well across the Alabama board that he’s going to be surrounded by superstars. Malachi Nelson is an interesting choice here Lincoln Riley The sleeping monster at USC could wake up and if Arch Manning goes to Georgia all bets will be off but at the moment I think Manning will end up in Texas, which still has a long way to go before he can win the title.
Acceptance of Harris: Fiction. The elite talent spread far and wide in the 2023 quarterback class, and when it comes to who I’m betting on for the most well-rounded college career, I have to say Malachi Nelson. Although Alabama is the ultimate dynasty that we have ever seen in college football, talent is beginning to take hold around the country. You also have to factor in Arch Manning, who can make Georgia or Texas a national contender once he is ready to touch the college football field with Dante Moore. I don’t think there’s any wrong answer here because of Eli Holstein’s talent and his chances of a big win in Alabama, but I’ve seen Malachi Nelson raise the Crystal Ball Trophy in his college career.

2. The top five of the five-star OL Cadin Proctor is a head net. He still plays in Iowa.
Gorni acceptance: FACT. Here are some of the reasons and considerations that could play a role in his decision-making process because Oregon is certainly playing a big factor in its hiring but when things settle down and it’s time to decide, I still think the five-star offensive tackle ends in Iowa. Cadin Proctor is an in-state prospect, he has been to Iowa City frequently and his former teammate Xavier Nawankpa has just signed with the Hawks and will also play a major role. Like almost every elite prospect, Proctor has a lot to consider and his official visit schedule is a bit weird – do we seriously believe he’s going to Arkansas State? – But the cold head will prevail and it is in favor of hockey.
Acceptance of Kakert: FACT. There were lots of concerned Iowa fans on the message boards when five-star offensive lineman Kadin Proctor announced his five official tours and that did not include the Hawkeyes. Is the in-state standout now potentially moving away from the game to become Ivory? No. Away from it. Proctor will make four official visits in June, including one to Oregon, who I believe are the main contenders for Iowa in the race for this appointment. He will also make an official visit to Michigan to start the season. But, remember one thing, Proctor has visited Iowa City a lot. At least eight times and maybe more. It’s an easy drive from his home on Pleasant Hill to Iowa City on Interstate 80 and he’ll probably make that trip to the Iowa State or Michigan Games this fall, and I guess he’ll make his decision right after that final trip.
3. Four star Arab Richard Young is returning to Oregon for an official visit Duck is a serious competitor in his recruitment.
Gorni acceptance: FACT. I think Alabama is leading for Richard Young, and it’s hard not to tell the Crimson Tide not to be left behind in elite races – or for players in any position. Nick Soap And his staff has given Yang the highest priority, and those players often end up in Tascalosa. I’ve always had the idea that Young would be somewhere in the southeast but the high four-star is making his second cross country trip in many months and that has something to say. The new Oregon coaching staff has been impressive, NIL considerations are helping the ducks in recruitment and there is a serious level of interest between both parties. However, I still think Young ended up at SEC.
Acceptance of Wright: Fiction. Being one in five makes Oregon competitive, but how serious it is remains to be seen. Feeling we have ‘Run out of gas’ emotionally. Justice Haynes from Peach State and a legacy, and an amazing tailback, speculated he signed with the Bulldogs. If Young wants to go to Alabama, he has to take it there. Oregon is a great program that has a lot to offer, yet it is difficult for most teenagers to move across the country away from their families. For the ducks, Young’s coach James Cheney said the four-star Oregon was more than expected during Eugene’s tour in late April.
