Things kinda quiet on the Steele front today?
Hope the staff and players blow him away this weekend. It would be nice to get a commitment before he leaves campus!!!! Or at least some very VERY positive response!!

We will get the same positive generic response that 5 star guys give at this point in the year. We will impress him and hilinski will help for sure but he won't commit..

Never know, he may, but even if he does, Trojans will put full court press on him the rest of the way.

I don't expect him to commit anywhere before July 7th since the day he set a while back is not too far off. That means the best we can hope for is to put ourselves in the thick of it for him. Put on the best visit you can and let the cards fall where they will.

What other official visits does he have lined up after us?

As we saw with Jackson, that final visit can be the game-changer.

Bummer. Oh well.

Cross my fingers and pray that his visit goes so well this weekend that he commits and cancels other visits.

If SoCal gets him last, it's over.

Well, you have a shot if you can get a kid on campus. Should be a heck of a weekend.

Personally, this feels like a longshot that may pay off later. Even if the Steele doesn't come here, getting your program and your name to pick time high schools out west is a plus. Helinski helps, but the more word of mouth, the better.

I also feel like it's a minor victory just getting a visit. Strong work all around.

The fact that Steele is coming 3,000 miles to Columbia is not being lost by many top level players. Frankly, getting him to OV here is a big win by itself. In case some havenít noticed, Boom has taken us nationwide.

Players at Don Boscoe, Mater Dei and other schools in the toughest conference in High school are seeing what's going on with hilinski and Steele. Even Kyle ford hasn't cut us out. We didn't make the cut to five by the top RB out there, but we were among his ten. We've got them thinking more broadly about "USC"

This is all very true. Lucky for us, Ryan will be here with Chris and in his ear.

Of course the site went down just as Steele was about to begin his official weekend here. I've been dying to know how his visit here went, but maybe it's too late for all that now. Did he have anything to say after? Couldn't find anything besides one pay-site article. He's rumored to have committed to SoCal but he's said not to believe any reports. I guess everyone knows that's where he's headed, but I guess he still wants try maintaining some aura of mystery for his announcement.

It's just my own assumption, but I think he wants to keep mum about it for a while, a few days or so, to let the furor from the Rivals reporter stealing his thunder die down a bit, and then try it again to make it more his deal. And then commit to SoCal. But I doubt the bottom line will change at all, and I think it never really was going to change in the first place...

It was kind of funny that SoCal Rivals ruined his special moment.

Every recruit wants to create that big question mark...will he or won't he??? I get that most of these having grown up with social media, so it's a very "look at me" generation thing that I don't get. But there are usually just a very small handful of top recruits for whom recruiting is truly wide open and anybody's guess. But when the whole world knows what you're going to do, it just looks kind of silly to try creating suspense.

You may be correct.. But the irony here is some decide the recruit is lying and this sleazy website pundit is telling the truth because it fits the narrative... I honestly don't care what the kid decides... But I'll wait to hear from him... That website guy is a classless jackass whether he has good info or not..

I don't feel that way. These recruits put themselves out there and send cryptic and intentionally misleading messages on Twitter. It's all about exposure and keeping your name out there. When you put yourself in that world you expose yourself. The alternative is to just keep a low profile and not say anything.

It's all part of a system. Without Rivals and Scout and 247 etc, all this recruiting stuff would not be what it is today. Those folks created the industry that made recruiting a year-round event, rather than a blip on the radar screen in February. If you want to be part of the system, then you're part of the system. If you don't want to be, then keep a low profile, don't send out intentionally vague and misleading tweets and wait until you're ready to announce to say anything. Rivals and 247 and all the recruiting analysts are largely responsible for creating the hype for these kids, so it's no skin off my nose if they want to try scoring a few bucks for their effort.

These kids are not naive. They've grown up in this culture. Once you put yourself out there as much as these recruits do, you're not fully in control any longer.
