Official visits

With recruits being told by coaches that official visits are unlikely this year, expect a lot of recruits who were waiting for the fall for official visits to lock in there spots with schools.

    Will this help our chances with keeping Emeka and JTT home?

    I think it helps with Alexander, Owens and Tinae and it doesn't hurt with JTT and Emeka but don't think it will be a big factor for either of them.

    But if Alexander is leaning to Cal, Tunae to WSU, and Prentice to Stsnford, doesnt it help those schools more?

    Am I correct that JTT has never even visited Ohio State? Can’t imagine him committing to a school he’s never seen in person. If this continues through the fall, I’d imagine the local guys would stay local.

    There's still nothing stopping kids 'walking around campus' as they are calling it on Twitter.

    I imagine some SEC teams will encourage kids to do campus tours where they 'accidently' run in to coach.

    one telephone call from Gee Jr could negate all that.

    But they still can visit unofficially, no? In other words, if TroyTroy wanted to visit for the Michigan game, which is totally gonna happen (yeah right), then he could, yeah?

    Thanks for the info, @sonics1993...

    Unknown at this time. If they just keep extending the dead period then no, even unofficial visits would be disallowed. I mean he could buy a ticket and come to the game but he wouldn’t be allowed to visit with players, coaches, administrators, etc.no tours or anything else. nothing beyond what a normal fan in the stands could do

    Have to wonder if the fact that Jimmy now seems to be taking the "virtual visit" thing seriously (about 3 months too late), we might see a few kids come back around to UW.

    While virtual tours make an impact, it won't be nearly the same impact as a physical visit. The coaching staff screwed the pooch on this one. Virtual tours from the beginning would have put UW even, if not slightly ahead of a lot of these recruits that went elsewhere. While an official visit might bring some of the non-committed and even committed players back in the fold, I find it difficult for a virtual visit to make up much ground if any. If these coaches are behind the times with their social media and distant contacting, I can't imagine them having the ability to differentiate themselves with virtual tours.
