DRC: Oklahoma TE Jake Roberts explains his decision to flip from Tulsa

Recommended Posts

Wow!  He was Tulsa's highest rated commitment (.8399).  Roberts is a 6-4, 235 tight end from Norman.  He is rated 50th of the tight ends in the country in 2020.

It's great NT flipped a potential great FB player. December can't come soon enough to see who signs.

Flipping is fantaststic.  So long as it doesn't ever happen to us.  Although, it also means that schools see that we have a good eye for talent.

I wonder at what point does the coaching staff back off on a player "committed" to another school and keep working to get him to flip ?  And, when do they say, this player is committed let's look elsewhere ? 

Want to play immediately ? 

Want to start sooner rather than later ?

Come to North Texas.

Want to get football players worth a damn?

Abandon this thought process.  

There is SO MUCH MORE North Texas has to offer.   What you described is more of a UTSA or UTEP pitch.

I think with the way the system is set up you continue to show your interest up to the time they sign. Most kids will not stop listening to others and you know other schools will not stop talking to our commits (especially if they have an exceptional Sr year). And yes, as UNT's program rises, there will be mid/lower level P5's that pay attention to who we recruit and will have no problem making a late offer.

This brings up another very interesting subject ... 

Players flip in cases where they feel they found something "better", is it OK for schools to change their minds, or drop offers if they find someone "better"?

Should there be an early signing period during the summer between a players Jr and Sr year?

I thought Micah Mosley was our “fullback type player” during those years
