Recruiting: Some interesting national news, but nuthin’ this week with the Jays. Some 2017 recruit visits lined up in Nov-Dec. According to Rivals.com…Lindy Waters IIIis reclassifying to 2017, in order to build his body and his game.
Bluejay Madness was held Saturday evening – 17 Oct 15. Sparse crowd as students are on fall break, MLB playoffs, College and Pro football, etc. Guys were not at their best…2 scrimmages in one day. Creighton Rivals has a BJ Madness topic thread, if you have rivals access.
The Sports illustrated BE Preview has stirred the nest in Omaha. Looks as though 4 folks cut n pasted it together, 3 writers and a stats projection guy. WBR’s Patrick Marshall, @Wildjays , spoke with (correction) Dan Hanner via a twitter series. Hanner is quasi optimistic about the Jays.
