Just two weeks ago, Brennan Eagles set a commitment date of July 17 that set the recruiting world on fire. After all, the five-star wide receiver is one of the top prospects on the market and some of the top programs in the nation are (very) interested in his services.
Now, though, Eagles is pumping the brakes with regard to his commitment, as he informed the world via Twitter that the July 17 date was “canceled due to technical difficulties.”
This is, quite frankly, a bizarre announcement. Horns247, who is tracking Eagles’ recruitment closely due to the fact that Texas is a major player, indicates that “technical difficulties most likely refers to problems putting together a commitment video,” but this speculation that is unconfirmed.
Regardless, Eagles won’t be announcing his commitment in less than three weeks as originally scheduled and schools like Florida State, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State and LSU (among others) will have to wait it out with everyone else. Eagles, who stands at 6’3.5 and 214 pounds, ranks as the No. 4 wide receiver in the country and as the No. 3 overall player from the talent-rich state of Texas according to the 247Sports composite and everyone will hold their breath until a final announcement is made.
