2015 Recruiting Whirlwind

Let's take a look at who we can expect to don the blue and orange in the coming years and carry on our tradition of destruction here on The Blue.

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Since I am about to give you all a quick synopsis of what is about to go down, it's best if you take a seat. I ALSO suggest you grab a beverage of some kind, mine is of the adult frosty variety, and settle in for some fun. I'll give basic stats on each of the recruits, at least the stats I have available. I have no plans to do recruit interviews because I'm not playing with that fire. Not interested in getting burned, if you catch my drift. Originally I was going to leave some evaluations, but I thought it would be interesting to see what you all see. Who stands out? Who hadn't you heard of, but you think we got a steal? Who do you think, out of the potentials, do we get (we still have 4 mystery commits)? I know I may have missed some, but I will edit this article as we get commits, etc. Please leave feedback and comments below! Enjoy!

*UPDATE As many of you have pointed out and are aware, Otukolo committed to Fresno last night. Not a great situation, but Locher and Berger will make any of use stoked on Otukolo forget about him. Also, it has been pointed out that we won't be in the running for Hawkins. I figured this was the case anyway. Nathan Meadors has us in his top 4 as does Kyahva Tezino. Not sure on Meadors, but i think Tezino goes SDSU. Just my 2 cents lol. Obviously Whitney committed and will grayshirt this year, which will not affect our scholarship count. I may update this thread one more time today as we will have an open comment thread tomorrow to follow all of the LOI Day news. It's like Second Christmas! Or first Christmas...something.
