Not even signing day yet, and already getting info about 2017 recruits. At least it means that the new staff is getting their foot (feet?) in the door(s) of the next group of potential recruits.

Looks like the staff is already following recruits for next year on twitter especially OL.

Looks like the staff is sending out invites to some 2017 recruits to come to a "Prospect Day" on April 1st.

This one just came through on twitter...not sure what he means by "invited"...whether that's just coming by for a visit, getting an offer for a preferred walk-on spot, or what.

I assume these prospect days are primarily "instructional" in nature. Official visits don't happen until after senior school year starts. I kind of like the idea of these happening while spring practice is in progress. Kids can stick around and see the coaches and players in action if they want to.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));
