During Monday's recruiting personnel forum at the AFCA convention, recruiting staffers also raised a lot of concern about the proposed June singing window. A Rutgers staffer said: "The June signing period idea is a disaster." His statement was greeted with a cheers and a smattering of applause. Most staffers said their biggest issue with the June signing period is the proposed legislation doesn't call for adjustments to the contact period. "By having a June signing period, it really narrows our ability to get to know these kids and foresee any potential issues," Missouri recruiting coordinator Austyn Carta-Samuels said.

One idea to potentially solve the concerns about schools using official visits in June as tryouts, came from Penn State director of player personnel Andy Frank. During Monday's recruiting personnel forum at the AFCA convention, Frank suggested the NCAA should allot a certain number of paid "camp visits" that would not count against a prospective student athlete's five paid official visits. "For example, let's say we would be allowed to pay for 50 kids to come in for camp," Frank proposed to the group. His thoughts were greeted by a lot of agreement, including Missouri director of recruiting A.J. Ofodile, who said it was a "great idea."

East St. Louis (Illinois) High receiver Jeff Thomas raised eyebrows last week when he tweeted Missouri and Alabama were no longer in his top group. "Both are great schools, but they're just not recruting me strong enough." Thomas, the nation's 88th-ranked player, said Illinois, Miami, Oregon and Louisville have been recruting him strongly, though. Thomas said he'll visit Louisville on Jan. 13, Illinois on Jan. 20 and is working on a date with Oregon.

While Washington State did announce three midterm junior-college signings Wednesday, including No. 11 offensive tackle Robert Valencia of City College of San Francisco, not all of the news was positive. The Cougars lost a commitment from George Moore, the No. 39 player in the ESPN JC 50 and their third highest ranked recruit in the 2017 class. Moore, a three-star offensive tackle out of College of San Mateo, has become a hot target with recruiters lately and now has offers from Arizona State, Oregon State, Fresno State, Missouri, Purdue, San Diego State, Syracuse and Utah State.
