The season for making premature judgments in sports is summer.
The time between spring and fall practice in college football creates too big a gap to fill with logic, and the dog days drag on with idle chatter.
Over a three-day period, Rivals.com is breaking down the current recruiting classes by jumping to sweeping conclusions seven-plus months before National Signing Day.
Tuesday was a look at which programs are best meeting their recruiting needs; today takes the other side and focuses on programs that have yet to add key commitments; and Thursday will be a breakdown of which programs atop the team rankings have staying power and which are lurking in the shadows but poised to make a run.
This series is based on needs identified early in the cycle by the team of local writers and national recruiting analysts.
