With our luck it'll take them 3 weeks to make those updates haha. Still waiting on the Gaskin's official announcement from FIU.

New Herald article posted at 11 AM quotes Butch as saying he is keeping 3 scholarships open for transfers, etc

This article does not list todays 2 signings. Are we done for the day if Butch says he is keeping 3 open?

It is odd that Gaskin hasn’t been officially announced by FIU football yet. One possibility is that he is getting a baseball scholarship and won’t count toward the football allotment; or at least that’s what I’m speculating.

I'm hoping it's FIU trying to figure out his scholarship situation and not grades or commitment issues. Don't think its a similar case as the kid that wanted to go to Indiana, verbally committed to us and ended up at UCF just because Gaskin posted the commitment on twitter right after. We'll see.

There is supposed to be a signing Day show coming.

It is odd this is happening. And if you add the fact he was ready to commit publicly and didn't, plus the fact he passed on the mic at the official signing ceremony in Atlantic HS. Here's hoping it's not anything major, just some kinks that need to be ironed out.

As far as the baseball scholarship etc., my understanding from this is that the NCAA automatically assigns that type of athlete the scholarship to football, because in the past many universities used this loophole to circumvent the NCAA limits. Don't know if they changed it back (the rules) or if I'm incorrect in my recollection there, but from what I remember speaking about this issue with someone with first hand knowledge of this rule during our Bowl game, that was his statement to us regarding two-sport athletes.

I like that the press conference hasn't happened, in my head it means they are waiting to clear whatever is happening with Gaskin.

We'll see ...

I just don't want another Randy Charlton situation. Gaskins is a real potential game changer in the receiver corps.

To be honest, I'm not sure Gaskin has the physical skill set to be a game changer. He lacks the speed to do so. I see him in a similar role to Ivan Thomas, as both have big bodies with great hands, and might excel as an H-back. I'm not trying to be negative, but just watch his film and can tell he's not a burner, nor is he incredibly elusive. I think Ivan Thomas is a better prospect than Gaskin. He has good size and will be a nice red threat, but I think guys like Underwood, Dillard, and Turner have more potential to be that game changer type. Again, it would be great if he signs, but losing him won't be the end of the world.
