In a break from the basketball madness (not that I’m okay with that), David Elson has been cleaning up on the recruiting ranks, especially on the local level, and his latest show of assertiveness on the Kentucky gridiron could be his biggest of the off-season.
Early reports say the Toppers got Franklin-Simpson athlete Courtney Dalcourt to commit, putting to rest a long and arduous process for the talented prospect. It is also a great triumph in the recruiting world for Elson, as he beat out Football Bowl Subdivision heavyweights
Georgia Tech, Louisville, Kentucky and Stanford.
Being able to get top-level players is the first step in being able to compete early and often. And Elson is doing that to the fullest extent.
We won’t know all of what Elson thinks or expects from Dalcourt until Feb. 5, when Elson is officially allowed to comment on recruits after they have signed their National Letter of Intent on or after that day. Western has announced that the program will be having a National Signing Day Celebration in the club level of Smith Stadium. The event is open to the public.
