Class of 2021

goleopards.com announced three early signings.  Does anyone have any scuttlebutt on these guys?

* -- I screwed up the math.  The thread name should be "Class of 2020."  The mods can feel free to correct my egregious error.  I was a history major, so math errors should be forgiven.

No news here, these were all posted in the recruiting thread months ago. Kyle attended a lot of games last year.

Thanks.  I fell behind on the recruiting thread a while ago and have never played catch up.

2 more 2016 scholarships available. Correct? Reichwein a walk-on.

If he is a recruited walk-on and getting any aid it is a counter!!  If he wasn't there is a least one  other scholarship. ( no partials in basketball). There is some confusion between Markle and Kirby regarding carrying over unused scholarships. ( I kid you not)

Unbelievable!  Any year now...

Verbal commits shows Reichwein as a non-scholarship player. As we know the "recruited" designation is not that difficult to get around.  But, who knows...
Losing 4 sr schol players, signed 2 so far, according to VC.com.

I'm not sure it's that easy to get around the "recruited" designation.  NCAA definition is pretty clear.  You are a recruit if (a) you take an official visit;  (b) any coach visits you or your parents off-campus;  (c) you get more than one call from any of the coaching staff; or (d) you get an offer of athletic aid of any kind.

Based on the COBL article you linked on the other thread, it definitely sounds like he is a "recruit".  If that is the case, then presumably he is paying his own way.  Theoretically a school,could lie about it - but I don't think LC or other PL schools would do that.  In addition to the ethical issue, it is too easy to get caught if the player transfers out and turns you in.  Not worth the risk to land a walk-on.

Yup, basically no off campus contact. Email all you want. Unofficial visits and coach contacts on campus. Phone calls initiated by the athlete.  Live evaluations without contacting player or his family. Doesn't sound too difficult to retain "non-recruited" status.
