I am not a fan of early recruiting either but just take a look at the '18 and '19 classes - the pace of early recruiting appears to be accelerating if anything. Please explain why you have no doubt that it is idiotic as more and more top schools continue to do it. Denver Maryland and Cuse has jumped into the fray when just two years ago they were not involved. The emergence of the Big Ten now pits more teams against the ACC regarding early recruiting. I suspect it continues at a very fast pace.
