Hold on! We got a Hope College commit on r/cfb. D3 3* Commit let's go!


Drexlore

I can not tell you how excited I was to see someone rated go DIII. I think since I've been doing posts, which is like 5 years now, it's happened one other time.


187Shotta

Why do you think he went D3?


ImpulseDecider

It might be because he wants to play baseball too, he's got a baseball background apparently.


187Shotta

Ahh ok ok. Thanks for the insight


mick4state

It's a rather religious school, so that might have to do with it.


The_ApolloAffair

I mean, kinda. If you are part of the reformed church of America, it’s probably the best bet. Hope as a whole is somewhat spread out in terms of Christian denominations and there are even a fair amount of non-religious students. If you are just looking for a straight up Christian school, there are many more strict options.


mick4state

Do I know you? Your username is the name of my best friend's former band. I grew up in Holland so I associate the religiousness of the people I knew with Hope.


The_ApolloAffair

No, I don’t know of any bands with that name.


PrimisClaidhaemh

That's an enormous get for a D3 school. He had D1 offers and was originally committed to Grand Valley St.


ImpulseDecider

Gotta hope he sticks now


PrimisClaidhaemh

One can Hope. Seriously though, I would imagine there's a specific reason a kid from Brighton ends up committing to Hope when he's got offers from Brown and Kent St. The bigger question is if he transfers in a year or two if he tears it up.

Wow Holland is my home town and this almost definitely has something to do with him or his family wanting him to attend a nice private religious school. Ever seen the movie “Hot Fuzz?” That’s basically Holland, MI.

> Ever seen the movie “Hot Fuzz?” That’s basically Holland, MI. Bold of you to say that when Jenison exists

If there's a town in West Michigan killing people for petty reasons in the name of "The Greater Good" my money would be on Hudsonville


Spartannia

Can't disagree

Maybe he just wants to get improve with every rep and keep getting better every week And WORK 💯🔥 🔥 🔥 No better place to do that than in Holland


The_ApolloAffair

I’m surprised to see my school on here. I wonder how much individual impact a decently rated player can have on the field where basically no one else is rated.


ethan_bruhhh

dude had an offer to brown and chose hope college??


JoshAllen4President

Ivy League offers seem iffy about the validity of reporting. I knew a guy that was a complete dumbass in high school that got letters from 1 or 2 ivy leagues but never got close to qualifying yet he told people he had those offers and it went on his recruiting profile.


galacticdude7

I'm guessing there's a bit of "want to stay close to home" going on here, this kid's from Brighton, Michigan and Holland is just a 2 hour drive away from there.


Long-Schlong-Silvers

The Brown of west Michigan.


ImpulseDecider

He didn't like what Brown could do for him


Parsnips_and_Turnips

Hope is a very good school with a beautiful campus in a nice city. It also has a strong religious identity (Reformed Church of America), which could be a draw for some kids. I can see why someone would pick it over a D-II or FCS school. Or even a MAC school.


ALStark69

G5 offers: Kent State, Western Michigan Other offers: Brown, Butler, Davenport
