Every NFL scout will tell you playing in the ACC only costs you money come draft day.

Clelin Ferrell, Christian Wilkins, and Dexter Lawrence all dropped like a rock with their ACC backgrounds down to   *checks notes* 4th, 13th, and 17th overall. Imagine the millions they left on the table by not going to Tennessee. ESS EE CEE!  ESS EE CEE!  ESS EE CEE!

That's the type of pitch Texas is fighting.. Can't wait til April so they can begin to pushback that narrative.  Idiots keep cheering conferences rather than selling the individual school.  Has TN put more multiple 1st rounders than Clemson has in the past few drafts?  Or will TN fans then use the conference numbers to combat Clemson?

Iowa has released their independent review of the program

https://president.uiowa.edu/sites/president.uiowa.edu/files/4816-8136-3909.1 FINAL Iowa Football Overall Climate Report.pdf

Quote

Acknowledging extra burdens for Black players, several players and staff alike referred to a saying about the program: "If you make it through the Iowa football program as a Black player, then you can do anything."

Quote

Several players, both current and former, also shared their belief that the coaching staff is not as welcoming or friendly to Black players as to their White teammates. According to the players, coaches “only become friendly with the Black players when they are contributing to the team” or if the Black player is a “superstar.” One current player, who is White, told investigators he feels supported by the whole staff, yet he acknowledged that his experience has been different than his Black teammates.

Quote

Finally, one former player said the culture is one where it is acceptable to demean people due to disability or race.

Quote

Many current and former players informed investigators that they were told the program has a “family atmosphere” during recruitment but found that to be untrue when they arrived.

immediately upon arrival on campus, freshmen were “secluded from the rest of the team” and told by a coach that the program was “going to strip who they are and teach them the Iowa Way.” Players felt deceived

Quote

Numerous players told investigators that the rules appeared to be racially motivated or enforced differently based on race. Players observed that, because of the requirement for conformity, coaches were not accepting of minority cultures.

Quote

One former player asserted that the coaches previously told them not to take a knee during the national anthem because they should “keep politics and football separate,” yet White players were allowed to wear MAGA hats and present an Iowa jersey to President Trump during his presidential campaign.

Bizarre

Quote

Many players described having to wear sleep bands to track their sleep, which they said was a very negative experience and caused “lots of anxiety.” A coach explained that, if someone had bad sleep for multiple nights, the poor sleep was “called out” in front of the team, and the player would be in trouble. Head Coach Ferentz agreed that players may have been “called out” in front of the team. 

Quote

One of the current coaches confirmed that there is a feeling among Black players that, although the rules are the same, there are disparities in the impact of the rules. This coach told investigators that he brought the treatment of players up to Head Coach Ferentz a couple times over the last four years with no resulting change.

Quote

One former player who plays professionally in the NFL told investigators that coaches told NFL scouts he was “not a team guy and had an attitude issue.” A second former player told investigators that his current NFL team informed him that a coach said negative things about him, telling scouts he was a “toxic player” and would “ruin their team.” According to this former player, a coach also told scouts he was “cocky, irresponsible, and arrogant.” The former player also told investigators that an NFL scout told him at his Pro Day
that a coach characterized him as “undraftable.” Finally, this former player noted to investigators that one of his teammates, who did not get along with this coach, was drafted lower than expected, the implication being that his prospects were negatively impacted by the coach.

And, finally:

Quote

...numerous players described feeling unhappy and unwelcome, citing to a program culture that they perceive requires strict conformity and rigid adherence to the “mold” of an ideal player, a mold that many Black players felt they could never truly fit because it was built around the stereotype of a clean-cut, White athlete from a midwestern background.

SI ranks top 10 national WR prospects for 2021

https://www.si.com/college/recruiting/football/top-10-wide-receiver-rankings-2021-emeka-egbuka-marvin-harrison-jr

#6 (!!)

6. Jerand Bradley, DeSoto (Texas) High School

6-foot-5, 190 pounds

Committed to Texas Tech 

Likely the most physically imposing pass catcher on this list, Bradley is a true vertical threat with a long, powerful stride and immense catch radius to his name. He runs better than one would expect and is an efficient player within his responsibility despite a relatively limited understanding of the route tree. Excelling in the boundary on vertical pushes as well as in the quick game, Bradley does have a release plan and he tracks the ball with the best of them in the class of 2021. Knowing his best football is still well ahead solidifies his standing in a deep class at the position but we don't anticipate him taking much time to make an impact in Lubbock.

JT is Jayden Thomas. He is not better than Ketron Jackson. 10 ypc and 1 TD in 21 catches. For the entire season. No one watched that HUDL and thought “he’s better than Jackson.” — foolishness.

An overrated Georgia high school player? Noooooo
