Welcome back to another episode of Dive Cuts with Sam Snelling and Matthew Harris. This week we talk about a recent commit, who is off the board, and who the Tigers’ top prospects are.

Also, Sam and Matt talk about why investing in programs typically leads to overall success as a program. And if you haven’t listened to our Before the Box Score episode last week, be sure to check it out as Nate interviews a pair of lawyers about NIL.
