This could be a new trend with seeing elite prospects committing to their schools earlier to guarantee their spot in that recruiting class.
Dorsey did it with Arizona.
Matthews just pulled the trigger to Kentucky.
I would say Simmons to LSU would be another example but I don't think LSU would be the type of school that would recruit someone good enough to turn Simmons away.
They are usually the type of program that loses recruits to elite programs (see Victor, Craig)
Hopefully Malik Newman won't got to Kentucky too
Hey, what a shock. University of Illinois fails to keep a prospect in state. I love it.
