Good question.  I recall hearing once that USC had NFL HOFers in 4 consecutive recruiting classes in the late 70s.  And not borderline dudes either.  I think it was like Ronnie Lott, Anthony Munoz, Marcus Allen, and...?

Tom's Time: 1985 Class Brings Top Talent and the 'Sandman' to Lincoln

https://hailvarsity.com/s/7403/toms-time-1985-class-brings-top-talent-and-the-sandman-to-lincoln?fbclid=IwAR3SexjjbpSAbQbC6NTBW3KhAjWIz6DjynTcG0OPGF6MX1hF_bA5ALb0VAc

the Cornhusker class was highly regarded nationally.

It included 24, among them seven from Nebraska, five from California and four from Texas. Most prominent were linebacker LeRoy Etienne from New Iberia, Louisiana; quarterback Steve Taylor from Fresno, California, by way of San Diego Lincoln High School—he lived with his coach his junior and senior years at in high school; and defensive end Broderick Thomas from Houston.

Etienne was a Parade magazine All-American, as prestigious an honor as a high school player could receive at the time. Taylor broke Marcus Allen’s total offense record at Lincoln High, as well as passing records held by Allen’s brother Damon. And Thomas, who was listed as a defensive end, was the Houston Post Defensive Player of the Year.

1967 wasn't THAT long ago

Heck, Devaney hadn't been in Lincoln long or won anything yet

Paris Johnson Jr. has been committed to Ohio State since June 28, 2018, but it wasn’t until Monday at Princeton High School’s media day that he hinted at shutting down his recruitment. The five-star offensive tackle told Eleven Warriors once he receives his acceptance letter from The Ohio State University, his recruitment “will be over.”
“It does feel good,” Johnson said about submitting his application on Aug. 1. “Once I get that acceptance, it’s pretty much over at that point. Right now, I can say that I’m staying at Ohio State.”

Big name on the board is Maliq Carr, a 6'4" 230# WR, 4*, with current crystal ball of 75% to Purdue. May be a dual-sport athlete and spend a little time with Matt Painter as well. Not expected to announce until mid-October though.
He's all in on playing both.  Apparently he's down to either Purdue or Georgia, which were the only schools to offer him that option.

Michigan wants him as a TE. He doesn't want to play TE.

Izzo does not want him at all, apparently. I think it was the 247 writer who said Purdue and Georgia were the only schools that were all in on him playing both sports

Yes. But in addition, I've read that he doesn't want to move to TE, so schools which are not committed to keeping him at WR didn't make the cut.

Promises are part of recruiting. But we will probably just bob our heads and say "yup sounds right" when he becomes a true TE and doesn't make the round ball roster at Purdue or Georgia.

He's a prototypical future TE - could be a great one

He could make it at Georgia for sure.

I think he could make it at any of these schools, but would be a borderline guy.  He's not even as good as like Matt Trannon, who was at best a serviceable body for the hoops team by the time he was a senior.  In the end, it probably just prevented him from being as good as he could have been at football.

yeah, he's not a high level enough basketball player to play at MSU or Michigan imo. Like you said, he could probably play at Georgia.

He's probably not a true WR and not a true TE. He's more a flex TE/WR hybrid in a spread offense. He would probably look great in Purdue's offense.
