National Signing Day to reveal recruits’ collegiate choice

admin rysqjljcpzpp , , , , , , , , , , ,

first_imgIn USC’s final recruiting weekend, potential recruits tight end Devin Asiasi, safety Jamel Cook, kicker Quinn Nordin, defensive tackle Boss Tagaloa and wide receiver Keyshawn Young all made official visits to Troy, further complicating the USC recruiting situation.Considering the Trojans have just seven of their 20 scholarships left to give, the competition is getting more heated as football’s national signing day is on Wednesday.However, a clear distinction must be made between those players who have officially signed on to play for USC and those who have verbally committed. Verbal commits are likely to sign with USC but can change their decisions if they so decide.As it stands right now, USC has 13 total commitments, with seven of those 13 officially signing with the University, including defensive end Wole Betiku, quarterback Matt Fink, wide receivers Josh Imatorbhebhe and Michael Pittman, defensive end Liam Jimmons, defensive back C.J. Pollard and offensive lineman Nathan Smith.Of those who have verbally committed but not signed, are tight end Cary Angeline, linebacker Joseph Iosefa, offensive lineman Frank Martin II and wide receivers Velus Jones Jr., Trevon Sidney and Tyler Vaughns.Current USC recruit Velus Jones is a prime example of players who are verbally committed but retract their commitments due to a change of heart. Originally, the four-star wideout stated his intent to be a Trojan last spring, then retracted and committed to the University of Oklahoma before finally stating on Twitter his final commitment to USC.Throwing a further wrench into USC’s recruiting in 2016 could be Clay Helton’s newly-created coaching staff featuring Clancy Pendergast (defensive coordinator), Tyson Helton (quarterbacks and passing game coordinator), John Baxter (special teams coordinator/tight ends), Johnny Nansen (linebackers), Ronnie Bradford (secondary), Neil Callaway (offensive line), Tee Martin (offensive coordinator/wide receivers), Tommie Robinson (running backs) and Keneche Udeze (defensive line).ESPN columnist Greg Katz wrote in his latest blog post about the advantages and disadvantages associated with Helton’s latest hirings.“To put it bluntly, the new faces on Helton’s staff have been given very little time to do what normally takes a high school lifetime to make recruiting inroads,” Katz wrote. “The good news, however, is that some of the holdovers from Helton’s staff are considered outstanding recruiters.”With eight four-star recruits already committed, the Trojans’ 2016 recruiting class is ranked 34th by Rivals.com and is tied for seventh with nine ESPN Top 300 recruits committed.In terms of recruits who have interest in joining USC this fall, the Trojans have a multitude of top athletes interested, including some who have committed via social media but are not officially signed until Wednesday.On Monday, blue chip kicker Michael Brown announced his commitment to USC via Twitter despite reports that another blue chip kicker, Quinn Nordin, decommitted from Penn State and visited USC’s campus this past weekend.Considering Alex Wood completed just 13 of his 17 field goal attempts in 2015, including 9-for-12 from inside 40 yards, a new place kicker could be exactly what the Trojans need.Unfortunately for the Trojans, despite No. 1 overall recruit Rashan Gary visiting and expressing potential interest in becoming a Trojan, Gary has whittled his college list down to the Michigan Wolverines and the College Football Playoff Runner-Up Clemson Tigers.As for the other potential recruits who have yet to commit or sign letters of intent, the Trojans are in the running for multiple top-tier prospects.Five-star Long Beach Poly cornerback Jack Jones. Jones has received offers from many top schools, but is considering Arizona, Arizona State, Alabama, Texas A&M and USC. The Los Angeles Times reported that USC was among Jones’ final three schools along with Texas A&M and Alabama.Of the five players that visited USC this past weekend, the most exciting is tight end Devin Asiasi who is a big, physical tight end who adds another level of versatility to the Trojans’ offense.In review, USC’s top recruits are defensive linemen Jonathan Kongbo III from Arizona Western; Connor Murphy from Brophy Preparatory in Phoenix, AZ; Maxs Tupai from Murray, Utah; Boss Tagaloa from Concord De La Salle in Concord, California; defensive back Jamel Cook from Miami Central, Florida; and tight end Devin Asiasi from De La Salle.In response to whether or not USC will have recruits to fill up the final seven scholarship spots, Los Angeles Times writer Lindsey Thiry wrote, “It seems unlikely, unless there are a few players who have been told by coaches that they can commit if there is room available at the end of signing day. USC is in good position for Long Beach Poly defensive back Jack Jones, but other than Jones, it seems to be anyone’s guess who will sign.”Even though USC’s recruiting class is not as strong as it was in 2015, there are still several potentially valuable recruits in the 2016 class. The Trojans have solidified their offense for years to come with five receivers, a tight end, two offensive linemen and a dual threat quarterback in Matt Fink.And while USC may have lost the Rashan Gary sweepstakes, the Trojans could be adding 20 potentially game-changing athletes ready to bring a national championship back to Los Angeles.last_img

The price of this UK tech share is up over 80% in just the last month. Would I buy?

first_img There’s a perception that the US has all the high-growth technology stocks in the US and that UK tech shares tend to be bought by overseas companies. For example, SoftBank bought ARM Holdings back in 2016. And now Nvidia is taking it over. However, the UK does have listed technology shares. One of these shares is artificial intelligence company RenalytixAI (LSE: RENX). The share price has leapt recently, which raises the question: could the shares rocket further or are they now too expensive?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…What does the company do?First of all, let’s look at what it does. RenalytixAI provides artificial intelligence-based diagnostics for kidney disease through its KidneyIntelX platform. The algorithm combines data in order to provide a patient risk score which then helps doctors treat patients better.It has a niche which is actually quite a large addressable market, especially in the US. Chronic kidney conditions there affect 15% of adults or 37m people. This costs Medicare over $120bn per year.Obviously, the problem stretches beyond the US and is global, so there’s a huge potential market for an AI diagnostics tool to help doctors.Why has the share price risen and what’s the opportunity for future growth?I think it’s the potential for the company to get approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that is boosting the shares. Approvals to sell its tests at $950 a time to healthcare facilities across the US could be transformative for the company, which makes no revenue for now. An update is expected within the coming months, hence the share price leap. Beyond the immediate prospect of the FDA announcement, the AI company has partnerships with AstraZeneca and Mount Sinai in the US. The latter is a joint venture for a Covid-19 test, which could be rolled out globally. That could be another source of revenue in the future. Longer term, if RenalytixAI can roll out successfully across the US there could be huge opportunities in other international markets. Also in the future, there will almost certainly be more chances to apply artificial intelligence to other healthcare problems. Once the technology is accepted and trusted there will be a lot of other opportunities to cut healthcare costs and improve outcomes for patients. Spending on solutions at that point should accelerate quickly. What will I do with this UK tech share?For now when it comes to the share price, I’ll wait and see. When a share price rises this much in such a short space of time there’s certainly more risk. I worry I may be late to the party and arrive just as the share price starts to revert back towards more usual levels. I’ll add the UK tech share to my watchlist and see what happens next. It’s possible, of course, the FDA might not rule in favour of RenalytixAI, or other operational hurdles may appear. That’s why I remain quietly optimistic, but also cautious.

I think the [email protected] Capital (LSE: SYME) share price has tremendous potential. This is something I have flagged in previous articles when looking at the size of the company’s total addressable market. The size of the inventory finance market, where the fintech firm focuses its efforts, is over $1trn. [email protected] is one of the leading players in the European market for inventory [email protected] Capital share price suspension Unfortunately, market sentiment towards the business has been hurt recently by the company’s own mistakes. After changing its financial reporting calendar, management had to request a temporary suspension of trading in the company’s s shares, pending publication of its 31 December 2019 year-end accounts and its 2020 interim results for the six months ended 30 June.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Trading was restored at the beginning of March, and according to management, the underlying business hasn’t been affected. However, a trading suspension is a big red flag. It should be something companies try to avoid at all costs.This has made me think that if management has made this fundamental mistake, what other errors are hidden away in the cupboard? That said, aside from this issue, it looks as if the rest of the business is firing on all cylinders. That’s why I’m excited about the outlook for the [email protected] Capital share price. Revenue growth The group recently announced that it had signed heads of terms to acquire the leading, Singapore-based fintech-powered commodities trade enabler, TradeFlow Capital Management Pte Ltd.What’s more, according to [email protected]’s interim results to June 2020, its number of client companies increased from 82 at the end of the first quarter of 2020 to 165 by the end of the year.Meanwhile, the gross origination of client companies increased 30% between September and the end of December 2020. Turnover in the six months to 30 June 2020 increased to £368k, up from £11k in the same period a year ago. This resulted in a gross profit of £368k, the same as the turnover figure. But after including all administrative expenses and exceptional costs, the group reported a loss for the period of £2.1m. Looking at these results, I’m excited to see what the future holds for the company. If growth continues, the outlook for the [email protected] Capital share price seems incredibly bright. Risks and challenges However, much depends on the company’s ability to continue to attract lenders to its platform. Supply has done a solid job of attracting borrowers and creditors to its platforms so far. There’s no guarantee this trend will continue.What’s more, the company is losing money and relies on shareholders to keep the lights on. If investor sentiment towards the enterprise falls substantially, it may become harder for the business to raise funding. That could jeopardise its future.Overall, I’m cautiously optimistic about the outlook for the [email protected] Capital share price. As such, I would add the stock to my portfolio, but only in a limited way considering the enterprise’s risks and challenges.  Rupert Hargreaves | Wednesday, 31st March, 2021 | More on: SYME Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.
