Three-point stance: QB Dominos, TCU’s velocity, USC’s Lincoln Riley relationship

National Recruitment Analyst Nick Harris Quarterback Domino’s in mid-June 2023, the rise of TCUs on the way to recruitment, and the USC’s Texas relationship are favorable for early Lincoln Riley Era

1. Where are the top quarterbacks in 2023 still leaning against the Dominos?

The past few weeks have seen multiple domino quarterback positions in the 2023 and 2024 classes where Dylan Riola has pledged to Ohio State, Eli Holstein to Alabama, CJ Car to Notre Dame and much more across the country.

However, some big names in the 2023 class are still committed to taking Arch Manning on his last three scheduled official tours this weekend, with Jaden Rashada reaching a decision and Dante Moore seeing the buzz surrounding his decision grow.

Manning will arrive in Austin on Friday as Texas pushes itself firmly in the lead up to the exit from the tour swings for both Georgia and Alabama earlier this month. The buzz with the Bulldogs was never more than Arch’s third weekend, but we’ll see if Texas can get the same post-visit after his departure on Sunday.

Rashada announced on Thursday that he would postpone his decision for eight days from Saturday to June 26. Rumors abound all over the place with four stars, as the final stage is far from a clear front runner. Speaking to Rashadar last weekend in Las Vegas, he specifically praised SEC West and the competition in that division and said it would be a great environment to prepare him for the NFL. If playing in this division is a big deal as far as he is concerned, it will obviously support Texas A&M and Ole Miss, the latter will also have the advantage of keeping his brother Roman on the roster now. However, Florida is the school that has made the most buzz in recent weeks after a big official visit weekend in Gainesville, while Miami may take him to campus for an official visit soon this weekend. The Rashada roller-coaster will have to go up and down a few more steep hills.

On the other hand, Moore’s name does not seem to be isolated from LSU because the Tigers have made a big impact in recent weeks. Michigan is now at the top with its valuable in-state prospects that it is a complete all-in approach with Five-Star. Can one of these two programs seal the deal before the end of the summer? Or will it have to be dragged into this fall to create ground with the potential of other programs?


2. Sony Dykes’ transition class at TCU is full of high-potential possibilities.

TCU made a tough decision to fire the long-time head coach in the middle of his 2021 season Gary Patterson And brought Sony Dykes To be a man of Fort Worth. Although field results have not yet been proven, the work on the path to recruitment as a summer powerhouse was remarkable.

The horned frogs pledged their highest rank last week when Amarillo (Texas) Tascosa four-star defensive and Avon Carter made his promise, rejoining his former high school teammate and 2022 signing Major Everhart in Funkitown.

When heading to Carter Class, their Promise List includes some names that show real potential for emergence and offseason developments. Cordell Russell has the raw equipment you need for a large-body receiver, TCU’s new promise Javeon Wilcox shows expert coverage capabilities throughout the secondary, Trevor Gusby is now applied by other major programs and Zachary Chapman is ready to show off all his elite equipment. . Up to this point after a mostly traumatic high school career.

Not to mention, TCU won a straight win against Texas last month with the promise of Lafayette Cowboys.

But what are the possibilities for this class? Can it compete for the top-three Big 12 class? Top 10 nationally?

The requirement is to add a few more key parts to the class and this is certainly possible. Since Mikal decided to focus his career on Harrison-pilot receivers, TCU has emerged as a potential fit. Rueben Owens II arrived on an official visit earlier this month and has horned frogs in combination with his top competitors. In addition, I feel good about their prospects with Cameron Cook’s co-insider.

The question of how successful TCU will probably be will not be answered until the fall, but the pieces are slowly starting to come together in Fort Worth.


3. Lincoln Riley is going to show his recruitment chops in Texas and Louisiana.

When Lincoln Riley There may be a permanent ban on some fieldhouses in the state of Oklahoma, which has not stopped the first-year USC head coach from tapping the surrounding area known for some big wins in the 2023 class.

Of the nine promises to the USC as of June 17, three reside in the state of Texas because Braxton Myers chose the Trojans over the LSU and others when both A’Maryon Peterson and Quentin Joyner made abrupt promises after a major visit to Los Angeles.

That doesn’t stop there, though, as the USC remains largely up to other Lone Star State prospects, including Brylan Shelby, Jalen Hale, Marcus Deal, Terrence Green and Warren Roberson, all of whom have made or will make official visits this weekend.

But even in neighboring states, including Oklahoma, the USC has found itself mingling with Micah Tees and most notably Tackett Curtis who had something big to say after coming out of his recent official visit to Los Angeles.

The USC has always made an appeal to the Mid-South region because children are drawn to the rich history of the city and the program. But now that these built-in facilities have been linked to Lincoln Riley’s widespread presence throughout the region, the prospect of bringing out the top talent for the USC is the highest in a decade.
