The fall recruiting circuit has historically been a busy time for students to visit campuses, strengthen relationships with coaches and ultimately make a final decision. With that said, the commitment rate has been as high as expected, as players in the class of 2016 through 2019 narrow things down. In this week’s Rundown, commitments to 20 different Division I schools are recognized, including 2015 NCAA Tournament participants High Point, Denver, Maryland, Brown and Ohio State.
In case you haven’t already, catch up on all of Recruiting Rundown’s recent coverage of the fall circuit.
