The Early 2018 Recruiting Equilibrium

In years past, we've seen classes start off with peculiar imbalances. Maybe commitments are mostly on offense or defense, or position heavy. That's not entirely unusual, and sometimes there are good reasons for it: more offers at a position; more leverage to gain commitments; a richer tradition on that side of the ball or a position, etc. But when you start off heavy at one position or side of the ball, there could be some not-so good reasons, often centered around an imbalance with recruiters.
