National Signing Day Preview with 247Sports' JC Shurburtt
JC Shurburtt, National Recruiting Director for 247Sports, joins Chip Patterson on the Eye On College Football Podcast to preview the biggest stories and predict what will happen on Wednesday.
CBSSports.com and 247Sports should be your home for all things recruiting this week, including up-to-the-minute commitment news and analysis throughout the day on Wednesday. There will also be a Signing Day Live show on CBSSports.com, featuring commentary from Bruce Feldman, Jeremy Fowler, Ryan Bartow and Steve Wilfong with guest appearances from Urban Meyer, Kevin Sumlin, Brian Kelly, James Franklin, Butch Jones, Jim Mora, Bo Pelini and more.
JC and I get you set for Wednesday's action in the Signing Day Preview below. Topics covered include:
-- Alabama's path to the No. 1 class for the fourth straight season, and a response to AJ McCarron's comments about "entitlement" and recruiting services.
-- Florida State' s strong close to the recruiting cycle; reminiscent of the Bobby Bowden years.
-- Michigan State's late push up the Big Ten recruiting rankings. Could Malik McDowell end up with the Spartans? Do stars even matter at a place like Michigan State where development has been the key to their success?
-- Team's with the most to lose on NSD: LSU needs to sign wide receiver Malachi Dupre to avoid letting another top in-state prospect leave Louisiana; USC needs to avoid getting swept with the "big three in LA" (Adoree Jackson, JuJu Smith, Damien Mama).
