In response to Reply # 0


  

          

All reports were he was going to Pitt even up to that morning he announced. He would have been huge

Boyd signing tomorrow would be huge and help make up for the loss but a WR duo of Foster/Boyd would have been incredible.

Stealing Dorion Johnson from PSU was a big get for us

This might be the best highlight tape I've ever seen. Reggie Bush, Jadaveon Clowney-esque. I hope UCLA gets this kid.

12. "His recruitment feels Marlon Lucky-esque"
In response to Reply # 11


  

          

I don't follow recruiting as closely as I used to, but I remember Lucky came down to Nebraska and USC I think, and ultimately went to Nebraska (where he was OK). I'm guessing he goes to Nebraska, but we have a desperate need for an RB who can play right away, with Johnathon Franklin leaving and our #2 RB (Thigpen) tearing his ACL against USC.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Whatever rivals/scout/247 have to say, it's quite evident this staff doesn't give a shit - and I love it.

that said we've got plenty to be excited about.
Tyner and Wilson? Same class? What? goddamn.

And we want to add late blooming Rennie Childs (TX) to that group. Sounds good to me.

Robinson twins are dope, at least one will contribute early. (We'll have two sets of twins on the team when they arrive - how crazy is that?)

Carrington looked pretty filthy during his semper fi stuff...

Got a JC LB on campus already to help with losing Clay and Alonso right quick, which is important.

We need to fill up our remaining slots. Chasing hard after some OL - significant need there.

Too-Early Top 25 recruiting update
As signing day looms, 2013's top teams secure recruiting classes

The confetti has barely settled on Alabama's second consecutive BCS National Championship, but for coaching staffs around the country, it's crunch time. Signing day looms, and recruiting coordinators have less than a month to secure their 2013 recruiting classes. Here's a look at how the teams in Mark Schlabach's Way-Too-Early Top 25 are faring on the trail:

1. Alabama Crimson Tide
Who they have: Alabama received good news right before Christmas when ESPN 150 WR Robert Foster chose the Crimson Tide over hometown Pittsburgh. Foster, the nation's No. 2 WR, gives Alabama yet another playmaker and continues to show how well the staff has been able to recruit on a national level. Thirteen states are represented in the Tide's 2013 class. Alabama has a pair of ESPN 150 running backs committed -- Tyren Jones and Altee Tenpenny -- and four-star athlete Derrick Henry, the highest-ranked player in the class, expects to start out in the backfield, as well. The Tide also found their quarterback of the future in Cooper Bateman, ranked the No. 6 pocket passer in the country. On defense, Alabama landed ESPN 150 defensive end Jonathan Allen.
Who they want: There are still a few spots left to fill in Alabama's class, and the biggest target still on the board is five-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil. Not only would he fill a need but he's also the best player at his position. Outside of Tunsil, the Tide's main focus is on defense. The coaches are still looking for a versatile defensive lineman and more help in the secondary, specifically at safety. Auburn defensive tackle commitment Dee Liner is at the top of UA's wish list, and Bama is making a strong push to flip him. ESPN 150 safety Vonn Bell could be the solution at defensive back.
Signing day surprise: Alabama will add at least two more ESPN 300 defensive linemen. Liner is the most likely candidate to flip, but keep an eye on Mississippi State commit Chris Jones, who has seen his stock take off in the past month. Henry Poggi, a Michigan commit, and Eddie Vanderdoes are also potential options. -- Greg Ostendorf


2. Oregon Ducks
Who they have: The Ducks are loading their roster with more versatile athletes, including LB commit Danny Mattingly. Oregon's class includes commitments from two ESPN 150 and two other ESPN 300 prospects. Athlete Dontre Wilson, No. 52 in the ESPN 150, and RB Thomas Tyner, No. 90 overall, will give the Ducks an even faster backfield in 2013. Four-star wide receivers Tyree Robinson, No. 274 in the ESPN 300, and Darren Carrington give the Ducks elite playmakers. OT Evan Voeller, No. 181 in the ESPN 300, adds depth up front.
Who they want: The Ducks' biggest needs are at LB and OL. The Ducks are among the top three for OL Thomas Oser. Their remaining targets are ATH Juwaan Williams and LB Peter Kalambayi. OL Cameron Hunt, LB Zach Cunningham, DE Austin Hooper and LB Myles Jack are all expected on campus in the coming weeks.
Signing day surprise: The Ducks will continue their trend of closing strong by flipping at least two players committed to other schools. The most likely candidates are OL Cameron Hunt (Cal), LB Myles Jack (UCLA) and OL Nico Falah (USC). -- Brandon P. Oliver

3. Stanford Cardinal
Who they have: The Cardinal have their quarterback of the future in Ryan Burns and have done very well with two positions that have also excelled for the Cardinal in recent years with tight end commitments Greg Taboada and Eric Cotton Jr. and outside linebacker pledge Peter Kalambayi, who's an ESPN 300 prospect.
Who they want: Stanford is in the mix for another California offensive lineman in Thomas Oser and could find room for yet another tight end, in Texas decommitment Durham Smythe. Speedster Devon Allen is also high on the wish list for the Cardinal.
Signing day surprise: The 2013 class won't measure up to 2012's haul. On the heels of a tough Fiesta Bowl loss last season, the Cardinal put together one of the top recruiting classes in the country, thanks in large part to what might have been the nation's best class of offensive linemen. This season, even after a Rose Bowl victory, there isn't the same buzz among high-profile recruits. And even though the Cardinal will sign a very good class of players who fit the Stanford system and mentality, it won't have the same national cachet that last year's did. -- Erik McKinney

4. Ohio State Buckeyes
Who they have: The recruiting class of 2013 starts strong in the secondary with three of the nation's best in Eli Apple (formerly Woodard), Cam Burrows and Gareon Conley -- the Nos. 3, 6 and 9 cornerbacks respectively in the ESPN 150. The Buckeyes also have ESPN 150 standouts in defensive tackle Joey Bosa, athlete Jalin Marshall, ILB Trey Johnson, OLB Mike Mitchell, TE Marcus Baugh, RB Ezekiel Elliott and OT Evan Lisle. In total, the Buckeyes have 14 ESPN 300 prospects.
Who they want: Ohio State's class isn't wrapped up by any stretch as the Buckeyes are going after some big ESPN 150 names. Included in that list are S Vonn Bell and WR James Quick, who committed to Louisville but is still being recruited heavily by the Buckeyes. Don't count out ESPN 300 prospects such as RB Cornelius Elder or WR Shelton Gibson. LB Christopher Worley could join the class as well.
Signing day surprise: Ohio State's need for another offensive lineman is filled when Dan Skipper decommits from Tennessee and comes to the Buckeyes. Urban Meyer flipped seven recruits last year and has already done it twice in this class.-- Brad Bournival

5. Texas A&M Aggies
Who they have: There are six ESPN 150 prospects and 11 ESPN 300 prospects in the class, with ILB Jordan Mastrogiovanni the latest addition. There are eight potential receivers in the group -- five categorized as wide receivers, including Tony Stevens and Ja'Quay Williams; three athletes, led by the nation's top ATH, Ricky Seals-Jones; and No. 1 TE Derrick Griffin. There are seven LBs, including Brett Wade, Reggie Chevis and Tommy Sanders. The Aggies also landed four DTs, led by Justin Manning and Isaiah Golden.
Who they want: Spots are at a premium now and if the Aggies add any more players, there probably will be attrition from the class. Still on the target list are ESPN 150 ILB Isaac Savaiinaea, CBs Mackensie Alexander and Shaq Wiggins, DEs Torrodney Prevot (USC commit) and Daeshon Hall and former USC WR commit Sebastian LaRue.
Signing day surprise: Even with space at a premium with the Aggies holding 35 commits, they'll land at least one more of their top remaining targets between now and signing day. That also means there will be some attrition in the class, as 34 is the maximum they can sign. -- Sam Khan Jr.

6. Georgia Bulldogs
Who they have: The Bulldogs have filled needs at inside linebacker and safety, with four at each position. There are two ESPN 150 commits on each side of the ball -- QB Brice Ramsey and ATH Tramel Terry on offense, and S Tray Matthews and CB Shaq Wiggins on defense.
Who they want: It all starts with Laremy Tunsil, a five-star OT who currently favors Georgia over Alabama. If Tunsil is target No. 1, five-star Montravius Adams could very well be 1A. Although Georgia has one RB already committed, ESPN 150 target Alvin Kamara remains a top priority. Juco defensive lineman Toby Johnson is also coveted.
Signing day surprise: Reuben Foster, who has twice passed over the Bulldogs, will choose Georgia on signing day. -- Radi Nabulsi

7. South Carolina Gamecocks
Who they have: South Carolina has a solid duo to build on in the offensive backfield with ESPN 150 running back David Williams and ESPN 300 quarterback Connor Mitch. The Gamecocks mirror that on defense with ESPN 150 defensive tackle Kelsey Griffin and ESPN 300 linebacker Larenz Bryant.
Who they want: The Gamecocks could be the favorite for four-star offensive lineman Na'Ty Rodgers and look to get the final official visit Jan. 18. They are also in the mix for three-star linebacker Yannick Ngakoue.
Signing day surprise: The Gamecocks get Georgia back for taking ESPN 300 ATH Brendan Langley by getting a late flip from ESPN 150 CB Shaq Wiggins. -- Kipp Adams

8. Louisville Cardinals
Who they have: ESPN 150 receiver James Quick is the headliner after picking his local team last weekend at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. ESPN 300 receiver Richard Benjamin will join him in Louisville, where the two will pair with longtime quarterback commit Kyle Bolin.
Who they want: Louisville would certainly like to secure some offensive linemen to match with its strong haul of skill-position players. As of now, the Cardinals have only one committed: three-star offensive tackle Skylar Lacy. Fellow-three-star Kyle Meadows would be a strong pickup.
Signing day surprise: Four-star cornerback Darius Curry has been committed to Oklahoma State since July, but Louisville has made a recent run. Don't be surprised if he decides to be a Cardinal with all the positive momentum in Louisville. -- Dave Hooker

9. Clemson Tigers
Who they have: Clemson has a solid group of commitments at the top on defense, with the ESPN 150 quartet of outside linebacker Dorian O'Daniel, defensive end Ebenezer Ogundeko, inside linebacker Ben Boulware and running back Tyshon Dye being the headliners of the class so far.
Who they want: The Tigers would love to add a pair of big-time talents on each side of the ball. On offense, Clemson is hoping for commitments from ESPN 150 wide receiver Marquez North and ESPN 150 offensive lineman Tyrone Crowder. On defense, it is in the mix for ESPN 150 defensive lineman Montravius Adams and ESPN 150 cornerback Mackensie Alexander, both of whom are five-star prospects.
Signing day surprise: With the loss of Demarcus Robinson and Ryan Jenkins, Clemson sells Marquez North on playing time and he picks the Tigers over North Carolina and Tennessee. -- Kipp Adams

10. Florida Gators
Who they have: With 26 commitments, including 20 ranked four-star or higher, the Gators sit comfortably in the top five in the latest class rankings. The Gators are led by DB Vernon Hargreaves III, the No. 3-ranked player in the country, in addition to these other ESPN 150 prospects: OLBs Daniel McMillian and Matt Rolin and safeties Keanu Neal and Marcell Harris. Offensively, the Gators need playmakers, and that is exactly what they have in this class. Four-star RB Kelvin Taylor is the state of Florida's leading career rusher, and he's joined by another four-star RB, Adam Lane. The Gators have five WR commits, led by 6-foot-4 Ahmad Fulwood, Demarcus Robinson and four-star ATH Alvin Bailey.
Who they want: Florida has just a few spots remaining in its 2013 class. DT Montravius Adams, WR James Clark, RB Alex Collins, fullback Kennard Swanson, CB Jalen Ramsey and DE Elijah Daniel appear to be the top prospects remaining on Florida's board. Florida has met a majority of its needs but might be able to reclaim its No. 1 ranking by landing a few more targets.
Signing day surprise: Many think DT Montravius Adams will head to Clemson, Auburn or Georgia, but with a lack of depth, the Gators could be the surprise team with Adams. Florida lost Sharrif Floyd to the draft and Omar Hunter to graduation. Landing Adams on signing day would help round out an already strong class. -- Derek Tyson

11. Texas Longhorns
Who they have: Texas has commitments from No. 1 C Darius James, No. 3 OT Jake Raulerson and No. 6 OT Kent Perkins. All three are members of the ESPN 150, as are WR Jacorey Warrick (No. 59), DT A'Shawn Robinson (No. 107), ATH Tyrone Swoopes (No. 128) and CB Antwuan Davis (No. 149). Texas also has four other members of the ESPN 300, including OLB Deoundrei Davis at No. 151.
Who they want: Keeping Robinson on board is priority No. 1. He'll visit Alabama on Jan. 18 and Texas on Jan. 25 before announcing his final decision on signing day. The top uncommitted recruit has to be Waco, Texas, lineman Andrew Billings, who is down to Texas, Baylor and TCU. Another key target is juco OT Desmond Harrison, who took an official visit in December and will decide in mid-January. The Longhorns are also among the leaders for juco LB De'Vondre Campbell and have recently expressed interest in top OT Laremy Tunsil, who says he'll visit, and Baylor OL commit Rami Hammad.
Signing day surprise: The Longhorns showed their power in the last months of the recruiting season a year ago by getting several players to switch commitments. That included Shiro Davis, who switched from LSU to Texas on signing day. Don't expect Texas to get as many switches as it did last year but do expect at least one on or before Feb. 6. -- William Wilkerson

12. Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Who they have: Notre Dame has No. 2 outside linebacker and five-star prospect Jaylon Smith leading the class, and the Irish added RB Greg Bryant and ATH Max Redfield, top-five at their respective positions, after the season.
Who they want: The Irish would love to add No. 4 defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes when he decides close to or on signing day.
Signing day surprise: Notre Dame will land two of the three current or former USC commits it is after. Two from decommitted prospects Vanderdoes and Sebastian LaRue and USC pledge Torrodney Prevot will sign with the Irish. -- Jared Shanker

13. LSU Tigers
Who they have: LSU picked up the two most highly rated players in its class when athlete Kendell Beckwith (No. 19 in the ESPN 150) and defensive tackle Maquedius Bain (No. 43) pledged to the Tigers inthe Under Armour Game week. The class also fills offensive needs with two ESPN 300 quarterbacks (Hayden Rettig and Anthony Jennings), four offensive linemen, two tight ends and three wide receivers.
Who they want: LSU would love to finish strong and has its sights aimed high. No. 1 overall recruit Robert Nkemdiche has LSU in his final two. Securing the dominant defensive end would be the feather in the cap of an already outstanding defensive line class. LSU also hopes to land two more players in the top 50: safety Priest Willis and defensive end Tim Williams.
Signing day surprise: Nkemdiche is, by most accounts, an Ole Miss lean, but the chance to play for one of the nation's premier producers of defensive line talent in a year when it has a profound need for immediate help has to be tempting. I'm calling for a signing day surprise based on the desire to develop under LSU defensive line coach Brick Haley and defensive coordinator John Chavis. -- Gary Laney

14. TCU Horned Frogs
Who they have: TCU has two four-star players in running back Kyle Hicks and outside linebacker Paul Whitmill. Perhaps the most intriguing commit of the class is three-star athlete Ty Slanina, who can play multiple positions on both sides of the ball.
Who they want: The Horned Frogs are still in the running for four-star lineman Andrew Billings. At 6-foot-2 and 308 pounds, Billings can play either offensive guard or defensive tackle.
Signing day surprise: TCU currently has zero quarterbacks committed. This could mean room for one or two high school recruits -- or, perhaps, a high school recruit and a junior college recruit looking to prove themselves. Baker Mayfield, Jake Hubenak or junior college QB A.J. Derby could be options. -- Damon Sayles

15. Oregon State Beavers
Who they have: The Beavers have done a terrific job at the junior college level, with three outstanding prospects in cornerback Steven Nelson and defensive tackles Kyle Peko and Edwin Delva. ESPN 300 cornerback Dashon Hunt was a big recruiting victory as well.
Who they want: Cornerback L.J. Moore and linebacker Keishawn Bierria will receive a big push from the Beavers' coaching staff as signing day nears. The Beavers also will receive the final visit from Brayden Kearsley, a four-star offensive tackle.
Signing day surprise: The Beavers won't lose any of their verbal commitments. The Oregon State coaches do such a great job of evaluating the recruits who not only fit the system on the field but also fit into the program off of it. And the players in this class haven't used their commitments to Oregon State as a placeholder as they look at other programs. This is a tight-knit group that is looking forward to playing for coach Mike Riley. -- Erik McKinney

16. Florida State Seminoles
Who they have: The Seminoles have a commitment from one of the top running backs in the country, Ryan Green (St. Petersburg, Fla./St. Petersburg), at the top of their class for the time being, and got a BCS championship day surprise when former Alabama DE commit DeMarcus Walker decided to flip to the Noles. FSU also has four commitments from linebackers and three from offensive linemen for 2013.
Who they want: Top outside linebacker Matthew Thomas (Miami/Booker T. Washington), ESPN 150 running back Alex Collins (Plantation, Fla./South Plantation), ESPN 150 wide receiver Stacy Coley (Oakland Park, Fla./Northeast) and four-star tackle Denver Kirkland (Miami/Booker T. Washington). If the Seminoles can land that quartet, it will go a long way to salvage what has been a lower-ranked class when compared with the previous year.
Signing day surprise: Davin Bellamy flipping to either Auburn or Tennessee. With ace recruiter Dameyune Craig now at Auburn, and D.J. Eliot at Kentucky, there is a chance Bellamy might not be as enamored of FSU as he once was. Florida State's new assistants will have to prove themselves to Bellamy when he visits. -- Corey Dowlar

17. Oklahoma Sooners
Who they have: OU has fared well at the skill positions with four of the Sooners' seven ESPN 300 commits in the showcase positions. Leading the way is running back Keith Ford, who is No. 29 in the ESPN 150. Quarterback Cody Thomas has vaulted back into the ESPN 300 at No. 248, and four-star athlete Stanvon Taylor is No. 200. Taylor's versatility has made him a hot commodity as he can play either wide receiver or cornerback. Anchoring things at safety is ESPN 300 prospect Hatari Byrd. After a positive official visit to OU in October, it looks as if Byrd and the Sooners are a perfect match. OU has made a solid push up front with four commits in the past month, highlighted by ESPN JC 100 OT Josiah St. John.
Who they want: The Sooners need a little bit of help at various spots. Two prospects who really stand out are four-star OT Aaron Cochran and ESPN 300 athlete Adrian Baker. Both have made official visits to OU. Baker is down to OU and Clemson, and OU is among four schools in the running for Cochran. The flipped commitment of ESPN 300 LB Jordan Mastrogiovanni to Texas A&M really hurts as the Sooners thought the linebacker was secure. OU also needs a lot of help in the secondary. The Sooners are hoping Fresno (Calif.) Central East can help out one more time. Sooners have the commitment of Hatari Byrd and are aiming for four-star CB L.J. Moore.
Signing day surprise: Been a tough week for Sooners on the field and on the trail. But OU will close strong, highlighted by getting ESPN 300 athlete Adrian Baker. Coincidentally, OU's Mike Stoops will help lure Baker to Norman instead of Clemson, where the defensive coordinator is former longtime OU coach Brent Venables. -- Bob Przybylo

18. Wisconsin Badgers
Who they have: Luckily for new coach Gary Andersen, the Badgers still have every recruit that was previously committed under Bret Bielema, which includes ESPN 300 RB Corey Clement.
Who they want: The Badgers missed on several QB targets in the 2013 class, so Andersen is hoping to reel in newly offered three-star QB Michael Julian.
Signing day surprise: Andersen will hold onto four-star DE Alec James, the No. 1 player in Wisconsin and the second-highest-rated player in the Badgers' class. James is looking hard at Florida State, Michigan State and Oregon, but he will remain with Wisconsin come signing day. -- Jared Shanker

19. Boise State Broncos
Who they have: Running back Aaron Baltazar is the top-ranked recruit for the Broncos, and Boise State has done a terrific job loading up with offensive skill players. Quarterback Ryan Finley will receive plenty of help from four-star offensive guard Andrew Tercek as well as receivers Jack Austin and Kendal Keys and tight end Alec Dhaenens.
Who they want: The Broncos' class is filling quickly, but Boise State is scheduled to receive visits from safety James Crawford and running back Rennie Childs (Houston/Cypress Ridge) in late January.
Signing day surprise: Boise State will land an ESPN 300 recruit. The Broncos are close with Baltazar, who has an 82 grade and is closing in on the ESPN 300, but the Broncos have been too strong in this recruiting cycle not to hit on a remaining target or flip a potential Pac-12 signee. Chris Petersen and his staff have made a strong impression on every recruit they've brought to Boise on official visits, and that is going to pay off as signing day nears. -- Erik McKinney

20. Nebraska Cornhuskers
Who they have: Nebraska looks set at quarterback and running back with Johnny Stanton and Adam Taylor. Outside linebackers Marcus Newby, Josh Banderas and Courtney Love should help the Huskers reload in an area that has lacked depth.
Who they want: Safety Priest Willis, the No. 50 prospect in the ESPN 150, remains the top target for Nebraska. The Huskers also would like to add muscle at the line of scrimmage with offensive tackle Aaron Cochran.
Signing day surprise: Taylor, a back from Katy (Texas) High School, capped a big year with a great performance in the state title game. A school closer to home, maybe even Texas, is going to pose a late threat to the Huskers for his signature. -- Mitch Sherman

21. UCLA Bruins
Who they have: The Bruins will add some terrific skill position players in ESPN 300 wide receiver Eldridge Massington and four-star running back Craig Lee. But it's along the offensive line where this class will shine with commitments from ESPN 300 center Scott Quessenberry and ESPN 300 guard John Lopez leading the way.
Who they want: Running back Terrell Newby will decide between UCLA and Nebraska on Wednesday. The Bruins also could load up in the defensive backfield, as ESPN 150 safeties Priest Willis and Tahaan Goodman are still very much in play, along with ESPN 300 cornerback Johnny Johnson Jr. (Fresno, Calif./Central).
Signing day surprise: The Bruins will land the Pac-12's second-ranked class. Although the USC Trojans probably will finish with the conference's top-ranked group of players, thanks to a terrific batch of early enrollees, the Bruins will cruise to the No. 2 spot and might even challenge the Trojans at the top. This group of coaches will close in a big way and will add at least three ESPN 300 recruits by signing day. -- Erik McKinney

22. Northwestern Wildcats
Who they have: Pat Fitzgerald could be putting together his best class at Northwestern in 2013. ESPN 300 quarterback Matt Alviti is expected to be the future of the program, and four-star Godwin Igwebuike is a highly sought-after athlete.
Who they want: Alviti would be happy to see the Wildcats bring in four-star receiver James Clark, who officially visited Northwestern.
Signing day surprise: It will be a quiet Feb. 6 for Fitzgerald, which is great news as it means none of his commitments will be leaving for schools considered better programs. -- Jared Shanker

23. Michigan Wolverines
Who they have: Michigan's class is led by QB commit Shane Morris, who is No. 54 in the ESPN 150. Michigan has five committed offensive linemen from the ESPN 150: David Dawson (87), Logan Tuley-Tillman (105), Chris Fox (113), Patrick Kugler (115) and Kyle Bosch (127).
Who they want: Despite having five defensive backs, two linebackers and two running backs already committed, Michigan is still targeting a few linebackers, DB Reon Dawson and RB Derrick Green. The Wolverines also have reached out to former USC WR commit Sebastian LaRue, as it looks as though target Laquon Treadwell is headed elsewhere.
Signing day surprise: The Wolverines are on the right track to cure the run game problems from 2012. There is a chance Michigan will finish the 2013 class with a top-five QB, six ESPN 300 OL commits and a top-five running back in Derrick Green (Richmond, Va./Hermitage). -- Tom VanHaaren

24. Oklahoma State Cowboys
Who they have: The Cowboys have three of the top receivers in the country in Fred Ross Jr., Marcell Ateman and Under Armour All-American Ra'Shaad Samples. They also have defensive end Sam Wren, who is ranked No. 14 in the ESPN Junior College 100.
Who they want: Four-star athlete Devin Lauderdale could fit in well for the Cowboys. At 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds, he can play either cornerback or receiver, but his worth could be in the secondary.
Signing day surprise: Could we see one of those stud wide receivers make a left turn with his commitment? All three are high-profile players, and late pushes by outside programs tend to happen in the closing weeks. Kentucky really wants Samples. Is playing in the SEC enough for him to consider? -- Damon Sayles

25. USC
Who they have: All of USC's commits are four-star recruits and all but one are ranked in the ESPN 300, including 10 ESPN 150 members. The Trojans have secured commitments from No. 1- and No. 3-rated safeties Su'a Cravens and Leon McQuay III, respectively, No. 2-rated defensive tackle Kenny Bigelow, as well linebacker Michael Hutchings, cornerback Chris Hawkins and defensive end Kylie Fitts -- all of whom are ranked atop their position group among California recruits. And with Matt Barkley graduating, USC locked up its future quarterback in Max Browne, the No. 2-rated pocket passer and No. 18 overall prospect.
Who they want: USC will continue pursuing No. 4-rated DT Eddie Vanderdoes, who recently decommitted from the Trojans. USC is also in the running for juco OT Desmond Harrison and Texas DT commit A'Shawn Robinson. There appears to be a spot open for another linebacker in the class, and No. 1-rated OLB Matthew Thomas, No. 2-rated ILB Trey Johnson and No. 8-rated OLB Quinton Powell are scheduled to visit campus Jan. 18.
Signing day surprise: Ace recruiter Ed Orgeron will secure another commitment from the South. -- Blair Angulo

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://www.tampabay.com/sports/college/linebacker-alex-anzalone-drops-notre-dame-expected-to-join-florida-gators/1270004

GAINESVILLE Alex Anzalone, a four-star-rated linebacker recruit from Pennsylvania who had orally committed to Notre Dame, has decided to play at Florida instead and is scheduled to enroll this week.

Anzalone must be enrolled at UF by the end of the day today as the spring admission period ends. He orally committed to Notre Dame in July but has had multiple visits to UF. He was part of the Gators' invitation-only Friday Night Lights camp in July and participated in last week's Under Armour All-America Game.

Oral commitments are not binding, and Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly's interest in the NFL could have played a role.

Anzalone of Wyomissing, Pa., is a 6-foot-3, 232-pound player who is rated the No. 11 outside linebacker by espn.com, No. 5 by 247Sports.

C'mon, we aren't Ped State.

He wasn't hanging around the "program". He's not a booster. TOSU had no affiliation whatsoever...dude worked fast food & lived in BFE, Kentucky.

He was hanging out in the tailgate area outside of the stadium where everyone drinks smokes etc & some high profile recruits were also. He asked for a picture with Anzalone, and Anzalone obliged. Later on, people found out he was pedo bc of some internet sleuth, and his dad went ape shit.

IDK about you, but to me that reads like he's reading the newspaper and chilling in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center

it was an isolated incident. we cant run background checks on everyone who attends a spring game...

I was just clarifying.

Just like when I said Oregon paid for Willie Lyles to steer them some players (Lache and Seastrunk) from deep in the heeeeaaaart of Texas...lol


btw I was hoping Chip Kelly would leave so that Dontre Wilson *might* take a look around but thats dead now...

Nothing that's been said by any of the parties suggests that Lyles did anything to push James or Seastrunk to Oregon, and everything that's been said suggests that Lyles helped each kid reach Eugene after they had decided it was where they wanted to be.

And your Wilson problem would be this guy, not Chip: http://tinyurl.com/b4mecc8

Our recruiting was completely in the toilet when he took over, but now we could finish very strong. We've already moved back into the top 25.

I'm remaining pessimistic until I see how things work out. Lot of holes to fill, but he's got some big time recruits' attention. These next two weekends are huge in terms of who will be on campus for official/unoffical visits.

We went from being in on basically nobody good, to a real player with a lot of top talent very quickly. His recruiting in the coming years, when he actually has time to build relationships, is going to be great.

I've never wanted to see a kid in orange more than Jalen Hurd. Lot of ground to make up there though.

34. "meanwhile...Tommy Tuberville is still a cunt"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Tommy Tuberville has made a habit of miffing players who committed to Cincinnati while Butch Jones was coach, causing at least three players to rescind their commitments from the Bearcats.

First, there was Kyle Kempt, an Ohio quarterback who had planned on sticking with Cincinnati instead of following Jones to Tennessee, where he had also been recruited. But Tuberville began offering other quarterbacks in his class, causing the quarterback to change his mind and his coach to ban Cincinnati coaches from his high school.

Now, there's two more: defensive back Demetrius Monday said Tuberville's coaching staff never contacted him in the month since the coach left Texas Tech to take the Cincinnati job. When Monday's family reached out to the program this week, the team told him the high school senior should "look other places," causing him to decommit Thursday. His father spoke to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"The thing is, we've talked to some other kids committed to Cincinnati. They say the same thing, that they haven't heard from the staff. Basically (Tuberville) isn't calling anybody, he's trying to get the kids to de-commit on their own.

"It's a bad situation."

Jaleel Canty, also a defensive back, had a similar story, requesting a conversation with the coach Thursday but being told he was busy and that the school didn't want him anymore.

It's not clear whether Tuberville plans to keep any of the players who made their commitment under Jones. Tuberville has brought in seven players since coming to Cincinnati, but there are still nine players recruited by Jones who have yet to decommit.

Seven players is not a full class, and there's only a few weeks before signing day. It would seem Tuberville shouldn't burn bridges with his remaining recruits, but there's no indication he's been on good terms with anybody since coming to the Bearcats.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaaf-dr-saturday/recruit-decommits-usc-lane-kiffin-pulls-scholarship-three-165651928--ncaaf.html

Redlands (Calif.) East Valley High School and USC coach Lane Kiffin are at odds thanks to a deferred scholarship.
Defensive end Kylie Fitts, a four-star recruit Rivals ranked seventh nationally at his position, was committed to USC and took extra high school classes so he could graduate early and enroll at the university in January.
Fitts talked to a couple USC coaches at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 5 and they said they were ready to have him on campus. But the following Monday, he received a call saying his scholarship was no longer available for the spring semester.
Fitts was supposed to be on campus on Jan. 10.
The Trojans didn't pull his scholarship entirely, but deferred him to the fall. However, since Fitts had already graduated high school, he had nowhere to go and didn't want to wait.
Recruiting man, its crazy, Redlands East Valley coach Kurt Bruich told the Riverside Press-Enterprise. Hes wanted to go to USC for as long as he can remember and now he feels betrayed. He did everything he was supposed to do from his end and he was a loyal kid. I think they thought because of that loyalty hed still want to go there. He said to me What am I supposed to do for the next five months? It seems shady. I think it seems shady to everyone.
Consequently, Fitts, who was recruited and offered by several major programs around the country, has decommitted from the Trojans and opened up his recruiting.
Bruich told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that Notre Dame, Washington and UCLA were all back in the mix.
The whole scenario has caused some consternation between Bruich, who runs one of the better programs in the state, and USC. Bruich even took to Twitter on Friday to express his feelings about USC and specifically coach Lane Kiffin.

Recruiting issues like this happen everywhere, but this isnt exactly the kind of publicity USC needs right now, especially on the heels of an underachieving season, which resulted in a bowl loss to Georgia Tech and a 7-6 record.

In response to Reply # 49


  

          

USC only has 15 scholarships to give for the next three years. they're always going to be looking for someone better than you, whether you're committed or not. don't get stuck high and dry when your scholarship evaporates -- because anybody who ain't in Lane's national top 15 is looking to be replaced before February.

52. " Duck Commits, Recruits React"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://ohiostate.scout.com/2/1258283.html

Just three weeks before Signing Day, Oregon head coach Chip Kelly has decided to leave Eugene and was hired and announced as the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.

With 13 commits in the class of 2013, several of the Ducks' top commits reacted to the news.

One of the headliners for the Ducks is West Linn (Ore.) four-star offensive tackle Evan Voeller, the second commit to the Ducks, and one of three in-state commits.

Voeller said nothing has changed for him, a stance he took earlier this month a midst the earlier speculation.

"I'm still solid," said Voeller.

Modesto (Calif.) Central Catholic four-star tight end John Mundt echoed much the same.

"Nothing's changed, I'm still solid to Oregon," said Mundt.

American Canyon (Calif.) cornerback Chris Seisay was struck by the news, but he too, isn't going anywhere.

"It doesn't really affect me," said Seisay. "I am disappointed but my commitment is still solid to Oregon."

San Diego (Calif.) Lincoln four-star receiver Tyree Robinson is committed to the Ducks, along with his twin brother, four-star linebacker Tyrell Robinson.

Tyree tweeted, "Doesn't matter whats happening as of now I'm a Duck an plan staying 1," on Wednesday morning.

Of course, the big fish for the Ducks is Beaverton (Ore.) Aloha five-star running back Thomas Tyner, the top player in the state, and the #2-ranked running back nationally.

Tyner told Scout at the U.S. Army Bowl that he was solid to Oregon no matter what, even if Kelly left, but he couldn't be reached for comment after Wednesday's events.

Juwaan Williams, an Oregon target, told Robby Boydstun of eDuck.com, "I'm still considering them. I know the staff will stay the same."

USC commit Torrodney Prevot is planning to visit Oregon officially, and the Texas native told Ahmard Vital of Scout.com, "Wow. He's a big asset to the program, but one man isn't the whole program. I wish him the best of luck."

Prevot told Vital he still plans to visit Oregon.

And four-star running back Dontre Wilson, another Texas native, and a Duck commit may take a visit, but his coach said he's still with Oregon.

"Dontre is still a Duck," head coach Claude Mathis told Erin Hartigan. Corona (Calif.) Centennial offensive lineman Cameron Hunt still plans to visit Oregon this weekend and said nothing has changed for him.

"Coach Greatwood is coming over later today for a home visit and I'm still visiting Oregon this weekend," Hunt told Greg Biggins. "I think they'll keep most if not all of the staff together so I still like Oregon as much as always, they're still high on my list."

Cedar Hill (Tx) quarterback Damion Hobbs confirmed he will still be making his official visit to Oregon next Friday (1/25).

Hobbs said he is excited to hear Ducks offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich could replace Kelly. After all, Helfrich is the coach he's been communicating with, and a large reason why he's making trip.

In response to Reply # 60


  

          

His mom and family wanted him to go to Pitt so bad and he had formed a great relationship with Bobby Engrem our WR coach.

Most accounts say even up until the morning he announced he was planning on Pitt, but Alabama made a last ditch effort and got him.

One story is his mom didnt like the staff at Alabama and that was playing a big role but they made it up to her in some way at the last minute (sounds like a story out of Blue Chips).

We landed Tyler Boyd who in some ways is just as explosive, but bringing them both in would have given us a pretty high powered offense in a few years with those two and either voytek or Chapman throwing to them.

there's a bunch of other WR's they're higher on and numbers are tight given the schollie reductions. elder prob won't get an offer unless a bunch of other options fall through which is definitely possible.

who were in a position to make official visits were extremely straight laced kids...with very very hands on parents.

I know there are some things that go on during those trips..but we haven't had any issues yet...plus at least 1 parent has gone with each of the kids we've sent out like that.

Hatcher is the latest to re-open his recruitment.

Of their current class, it's totally conceivable that Prevot (A&M? us?) Ramsey (Florida?) Falah (Us? UW?) and Isaac (ND?) all switch. They already lost Vanderdoes and LaRue... (I realize LaRue wasn't that big of a deal to them.)

It's just a matter of the NCAA deciding (agreeing on) what they want to do about it.

foh

and I wasn't being hee-hee about it at all
that was a completely dispassionate take on the situation

Bielema doin pretty well so far. it couldn't have gotten worse i suppose.

lets see if he can land a LANDMARK RECRUIT. Altee Tenpenny, despite having a fucking legendary name, is the best recruit in Arkansas high school. obviously then he is committed to Bama. but this was before Billy B arrived in Arky and i think he could be attracted to starting multiple years, and ya know, competing against Bama. he made an official visit so hopefully he turns away glory and tradition and national championships to beast for his home state (lol).

Hunter Henry, rated the #2 TE in the country, has been committed for over a year. he is 6'6 and reportedly ran a 4.37 (DAMN)

Austin Allen had offers from everywhere between Notre Dame and Alabama. he is a part of the "Fayeteville trio" that have all committed to Arkansas. he's ranked as the 3rd best prospect in the state

WR Drew Morgan (WHITE!!! 4.4 SPEED!!), a two time MVP of the state championship game, has committed to Arkansas after being harrassed by Gus Malzahn for months.

Bielema signed a stud Hawaiian O-lineman, 4 star recruit, the best we have signed as of yet. hope some guys rescind and go with Billy B. signing 5 JUCO guys, mainly LBs and DBs, is a great move as well. signed the nations best OLB!!

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

With less than two weeks to go before national signing day on Feb. 6, RecruitingNation has put together a list of the ESPN 300 prospects who are still uncommitted and where they are likely to sign. With some recruits still taking official visits and several planning to announce their college decisions before signing day, this list could look vastly different in two weeks. But for now, here is where the top four- and five-star college football prospects stand.

Robert NkemdicheLoganville, Ga./GraysonESPN 300 RANK: 1POS: DEDECISION DATE: Feb. 6

Auburn
"He said he was having the best time and Auburn pretty much shot up his board as a leader.

Vita VeaMilpitas, Calif./MilpitasESPN 300 RANK: 227POS: DEDECISION DATE: TBD

Texas recently decided to start recruiting Billings as a defensive tackle rather than an offensive lineman, and the Longhorns have since risen to the top of his list, according to his high school coach.

85. "an interesting recruiting story...."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

after signing day there are a couple of other things I can talk about regarding this process that you guys might fight interesting...I just have to make sure I'm not violating anything by speaking about stuff.... for now I can only really speak on stuff that is already widely known..

anyway...

so yesterday I'm in a meeting with Oregon State coaches and our middle linebacker Kieshawn Bierria... he's honestly one of the better defensive players in the state coming off an incredible season... and he's likely to end up at either Oregon or Oregon State...

so I leave the meeting....and walk right into this
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2013/01/pepper-spray-narbonne-high-school.html

and got a face full of pepper spray... 2 girls got in a fight...one of them broke out the pepper spray in a crowded hall way....

so anyways....as the Oregon State coaches are leaving..they have this crazy look on their face and I tell them... "Welcome to LA City....come back again"...lol.

could have been worse...

86. "5 Things You Should Know About Recruiting (swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0
Thu Jan-24-13 02:56 PM by MothershipConnection

  

          

http://www.forwhomthecowbelltolls.com/lols-2/2013/1/23/3902890/five-things-that-you-should-know-about-recruiting

1. The first question that you should always ask is not how your own favorite team is doing recruiting wise, but how your rival team is doing? Do they have a better recruiting class than you? Then it's simple: they are cheating. Has anyone checked the bank account of 5-star local talent Flabu Mochapichu's mother? If you work at the local bank, you definitely should do this now (please don't, that's got to be highly illegal). If/when you do so, we guarantee there are extra funds in there, sent over by your rivals. The most important thing to know when talking recruiting is that those sorry sacks of you know what at your rival school are the dirtiest, low-downiest cheating recruiters to ever walk the face of the earth. They have bagmen who hand out $100s to recruits like candy at Halloween. Every car dealership is in their pocketbook. Commissioner of the SEC? He looks the other way, because he's getting a cut too! If I teach you nothing else here today, I hope that you at least take away from our talk this one simple truth: your rivals are cheating to get recruits. No mistaking it friend.

2. Today's recruiting world is just like the real world in that it revolves around social media. It's not enough to talk with your friends about how much you want 6-star safety Eddie VanHalenzero to come to your school, you have to go tweet it and put it on your Facebook account. Wait, what's that you say? Some of these recruits are on Twitter and Facebook as well? Well then! Why don't you just tweet to them how much you want them to come to your school. Make sure you do it daily, and encourage your friends to do the same. This is most definitely an allowed tolerated and widely practiced tactic, so make sure you are in on it too! You don't want your rival school or even Alabama or Florida or USC to have its fans tweet to him more, do you? Of course you don't. Just make sure that you throw in lots of $'s as your s's so that he knows just how much you really want him to commit to your university.

3. Did that highly coveted 7-star quarterback commit to another school over yours? Then let's talk about the proper response. It's not "congratulations", it's not "I'm glad that that young man picked the academic institution that he feels is best suited for him." What is the proper response if a highly sought after recruit picks another school over yours? "Didn't want him anyways". This should always, always be your first choice in responding to such a preposterous decision. Second choice? "He was a grade risk; he won't step foot on campus". You don't want to just let the young man enjoy his choice, you really have to demean him as a person for not choosing the school that you chose 20 years ago to attend sparingly before you knocked up that cheerleader and had to drop out to cut grass at your cousin's lawn care business. Also, when you are demeaning the young man, make sure to throw in a "he didn't have the character required to play for this university". Always a crowd pleaser, and will make you feel better too!

4. On the other side of the coin, there is the chance that that highly ranked recruit chooses your school. Congrats! This is most assuredly a happy time for you as a fan, correct? WRONG. Your first thought should be: "why isn't he rated a 5-star instead of 4?" It becomes so crystal clear at that very moment that the recruiting scouting services are all run by key alumni from your rival school, and they are manipulating the ranking system because they knew six months before the young man even did that he would choose your school. It's sad that they would do that, isn't it? But they are. They are doing it, and you won't stand for it. No, you will shout injustice from atop every message board, every Twitter handle you have commandeered. You will not rest until this wrong has been made right.

5. The last but certainly not least important thing that you need to know before following recruiting these last two weeks is that there are people on the message boards affiliated with your school that know a TON about recruiting. "But if he knows so much, then why isn't he working for one of the recruiting sites instead of hanging out here 18 hours a day?", you might say. Because he is there for your benefit, not for his own financial gain. He is placed there by the recruiting knowledge gods to lend to you his highly in-tune stream of information on everything from which recruit will commit to which one is getting handouts from Nick Saban. "But my friends tell me that he's been wrong about the last 22 recruits that he's predicted commitments for". So?! Nobody is perfect man. The important point to make here is that he knows what he's talking about. He's definitely not just guessing. He's definitely not just finding information on another board or site's article and then sharing with you as "a source told me this". That's definitely not happening. If you're going to enter this sometimes confusing world of sports information, you are going to just have to blindingly trust everything you read and hear from others. Oh, and don't stop there, make sure you spread it to everyone you know.

88. "Brady Hoke cries when top RB picked Michigan (swipe)"

Brady Hoke was so happy top running back recruit picked Michigan, he started crying
http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaaf-dr-saturday/brady-hoke-happy-top-running-back-recruit-picked-230259038--ncaaf.html

Michigan landed Rivals' top ranked running back in the 2013 class, Derrick Green. Big day for the Wolverines and coach Brady Hoke. Let's let Green describe the coach's reaction.

He was real excited, Green said, according to Michigan.247sports.com. I kept him on his toes. But when I told him today he was just astound and actually started crying."

Hold on ... what?

"It was crazy, it was an unbelievable experience," Green said.

Ummm, yeah, we'd say a coach crying over a recruit saying he coming to play for him qualifies as unbelievable.

We get it though. Recruiting has to turn coaches into a nervous wreck. The Wolverines had to put in a ton of time and effort into Green, who is from Richmond, Va. and is one of four five-star backs listed by Rivals in this class, and there's no consolation prize if he would have picked Auburn or Tennessee, the two other finalists. Hoke and his staff either lands him, or they've flushed countless hours and trips and phone calls and texts down the drain that could have gone to another prospect.

Still, we don't expect a well known coach to get weepy over the whims of a teenager, even if he is 220 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds. Hopefully these will be the last tears Hoke spills over Green while he's at Michigan.

91. "Bo Pelini not good at taking no for an answer"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

He didn't want to do it out of fear of what people might think of him, but after finally overcoming that notion, Dominic Walker decommitted Nebraska to pledge his newfound allegiance to Auburn on Friday.

The relief could be heard in his voice as he talked about finally making the decision that had been tugging at him for nearly a week.

In the end, however, Walker weighed all of the pros and cons of choosing either Nebraska or Auburn and it was Auburn that came out on top.

"There's more opportunity for my family to see me play because it's closer to home and there's a better chance for me to go in and play right away, which is what I was looking for all along," Walker said Friday night after making the announcement that he would be joining teammate and fellow wide receiver Tony Stevens as newly committed Tigers. "Plus, I get to play another four years with my teammate Tony and that's great ... everything is just great."

He had said the same thing about Nebraska two months ago after an official visit to Lincoln. That's when he decommitted from a Vanderbilt pledge. He finally committed to Nebraska on Dec. 30, and the overwhelming support he'd seen from Nebraska fans seemed have him locked in to Big Red Nation.

It was hard for Walker to make that call to Nebraska on Friday, but he knew he had to do it. He said he didn't handle the Vanderbilt situation as well as he could have back when he decommitted from the Commodores in October and he wanted to make sure and do the right thing this time.

Even his mom was afraid for him when he made the call to head coach Bo Pelini and his staff on Friday.

"It was a very tough decision. They were . They were very mad. But I thought I had to call them like a real man shoould," Walker said. "But yeah, they were mad. Coach Pelini said, 'Best of luck, you're going to need it.' "

Wide receivers coach Rich Fisher also was in on the call.

"Coach Fisher said, 'I cant believe you,' " Walker said. "It was really awkward."

He had prepared himself for the conversation but nothing really got him ready to face the music. But he did what he felt he had to do.

"At first I was scared to decommit because of what people might think about me since I decommitted from Vandy and then I'd be decommitting from Nebraska," Walker said. "But I just gotta do what I gotta do and not worry about what people have to say. It's my future."

Indeed it is and his future will be spent in Auburn, Ala., for the next four seasons, most likely.

Walker said Stevens committing to Auburn last week did not have much to do with his choice to join the Tigers. He and Stevens both took official visits to Auburn last weekend.

"Not really. I just felt I had to do whats best for me," Walker said. "He made his decision, but it didnt really affect my decision. In the end, it might have affected it a little bit, but overall not really."

Being six hours away from Orlando seems to be the most important factor in the equation, as well as a relentless push from new Auburn co-offensive coordinator Dameyune Craig. The former Auburn quarterback was hired away from Florida State last month by new Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn.

"He said me and Tony can be just like we were in high school. ... Tony on one side and me on the other. We're two different types of receivers, so he said we won't be competing against each other," Walker said. "Coach Craig, they let him kind of go out and recruit his guys since he knows Florida and he really hand picked us. He saw the receivers he wanted to go out and get and he recruited us hard.

"I've gotten to know him real well these past few weeks. We've been talking like three or four times every day. I like how he talks about things and he has a good way of phrasing stuff. He came to my house for the in-home visit and let my mom know what things would be like for me at Auburn and she fell in love with his words, too."

Walker and Stevens were a formidable duo at Evans the past two seasons, during which the Trojans won two straight Class 7A district titles and were 19-5. Stevens was the go-to target and the deep threat, while Walker did most of the dirty work. Over the course of their junior and senior seasons, the pair combined for 141 catches, 2,600 yards and 36 touchdowns

Stevens had 43 catches for 803 yards and 14 touchdowns this past season, and as a junior he had 37 catches for 781 yards and 10 touchdowns, averaging almost 20 yards per catch over the two seasons.

Walker, who got off to a slow start this past season, which was somewhat due to some sloppy conditions in a rainy September and the Trojans ran the ball a lot. He had 25 catches for 398 yards as a senior, and as a junior he caught 36 balls for 618 yards and six touchdowns. He averaged 16 yards per catch over two seasons.

92. "this is a horseshit article"
In response to Reply # 91


  

          

it's just piling on at this point, for the full story it is here....

http://sports.omaha.com/2013/01/27/recruiting-reviewing-the-dominic-walker-drama/

Add Dominic Walker to the names of recruits who spurned Nebraska and arent soon likely to be forgotten by Husker fans.

Walker was a commit for the Huskers 2013 recruiting class for about one month. He had decommitted from Vanderbilt shortly after taking an official visit to NU, and then picked Nebraska over Florida State in late December. He looked to be on boarduntil he took a late official visit to Auburn.

Over the last week on Twitter, Walker chewed on this decision in a variety of ways, including pitting NU and AU against each other in a video game. He eventually picked the Tigers, and relayed to the Orlando Sentinel that Husker coaches werent happy when he delivered the news. From the story:

It was hard for Walker to make that call to Nebraska on Friday, but he knew he had to do it. He said he didnt handle the Vanderbilt situation as well as he could have back when he decommitted from the Commodores in October and he wanted to make sure and do the right thing this time.

Even his mom was afraid for him when he made the call to head coach Bo Pelini and his staff on Friday.

It was a very tough decision. They were . They were very mad. But I thought I had to call them like a real man should, Walker said. But yeah, they were mad. Coach Pelini said, Best of luck, youre going to need it.

Wide receivers coach Rich Fisher also was in on the call.

Coach Fisher said, I cant believe you, Walker said. It was really awkward.

This story got picked up by several national sports Web sites and will undoubtedly be a topic of conversation on Mondays talk shows.

Pelini and Co. cant say anything about Walker. If they could, they might have a decent defense for their displeasure. Lets look quickly at some of the statements Walker made in the week before his decision.

On. Jan. 20, he tells Auburns Rivals site that his visit went better than he thought it would and that he was 75 percent sure hed play with high school teammate Tony Stevens for the Tigers.

On Jan. 21, Walker tells Huskers Illustrated in the afternoon that Fisher and offensive coordinator Tim Beck were mad and didnt understand why Walker had visited Auburn and said he was going to switch. Later that night, he told HI that Pelini and Fisher werent mad during their in-home visit.

They were just discussing things and we were going over things, he said. We went over things that Nebraska can offer that maybe Auburn cant.

Meanwhile Walker tells Husker Online that the visit is a smashing success and hes 100 percent committed to NU. Walker explains how Nebraska coaches compared and contrasted the two schools.

They talked about their past history and how theyve always been winning at least nine or ten games every year and they are just missing a few pieces, Walker told HO. Auburn is kind of a rebuilding program right now and Nebraska already has everything, they are just building on what they have.

On Jan. 23, he tells the Auburn Rivals site that, after the Tigers in-home visit, hes back to 50/50, and part of it has to do with the negative recruiting Nebraska apparently employed two days before.

They were trying to bring up the bad things about why I shouldnt go to Auburn, Walker said. They were trying to tell me the bad things trying to persuade me why I should go to their school. But I didnt understand that. They can say anything, but its been two or three years since Cam Newton and nothing has happened.

Walkers intimating that Pelini and Fisher suggested Auburn could be in NCAA trouble. And the Tigers could although not from the Cam Newton drama from 2010. In late 2012, the NCAA started investigating Auburn and two of its assistant coaches. From the story:

Sources told Yahoo! Sports in September that the NCAA has been investigating the recruitment of 2012 Auburn signee Jovon Robinson, whose Memphis Wooddale High School academic transcript was found to be forged and was subsequently declared ineligible in August to play this year at the school. The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported in August that a guidance counselor at Wooddale admitted creating a fraudulent transcript and resigned.

Robinson declined comment to Yahoo! Sports through a family member in September. He is not enrolled at Auburn this semester.

In addition to the academic issues involving Robinson, sources told Yahoo! Sports the NCAA has investigated whether a Wooddale P.E. teacher, Rhonda Wilkinson, provided impermissible benefits to the player during his recruitment, including transportation to the Auburn campus on at least one occasion. Wilkinson is an Auburn graduate and fan her vehicle and home are extensively decorated with Auburn memorabilia.

According to Walker, new Auburn assistant/former Tiger QB Dameyune Craig who recruited Walker at Florida State gave the prospect what Auburns Rivals site calls the honest answer.

Coach Craig was real honest, he said if I knew Auburn wasnt anything but a clean, outstanding program, I wouldnt have taken this job, Walker said.

Walker continued: He has a great way with words and all he did was preach the positive about Auburn, he didnt say anything negative about Nebraska.

But some Auburn coach did. How do we know this? Because Walker told ESPN so after he made his decision on Jan. 25.

They were asking me why I would leave the southeast, where the weather is nice, to go somewhere where its so cold, Walker said. And then they told me how far it would be for my family to drive to the games, and I shouldnt subject them to driving so far on those icy roads when I could play in the SEC and be much closer to home.

Icy roadsyes, thats not negative at all.

Whats misguided about the backlash toward Pelini is this: Hes been criticized rightly, at times for not being pushy enough in recruiting. He gives prospects ample to room to commit or not commit. Rarely does a player leave his official visit having made a pledge on the spot, and thats because Pelini often asks the kids to sit on it and be sure.

Walkers one time to make a choice without losing a year to transferring is right now. If a kid wants to decommit several times, he can, and there isnt much a coaching staff can do, other than apply guilt, to stop him. But when Walker accuses Nebraska of stabbing Auburn in the back only to conveniently forget the ol icy roads tactic until after hed flipped his commitment shows the kid was sending significant mixed signals after his official visit to Auburn, and that he ultimately wasted a full month of Nebraskas time.

In response to Reply # 99


  

          

the guy who wrote that article had an agenda in mind

I don't fault the recruit, he decom'd from Vandy to NU before leaving for Auburn and quite frankly he will likely play earlier there because NU is loaded at WR, best I can remember since I was a child.

IMO it's the same crap as when the TV cameras are all panned to Pelini hoping for a blowup while ignoring Brian Kelly screaming at his QB and Saban getting the face of a player after making a mistake.

Just be consistent.

NU just lost a top safety recruit from Youngstown, OH to Kentucky because Mark Stoops was selling the "SEC brand name" instead of the school.

Meanwhile that trash program hasn't won anything of significance since the 1950's, will always be second fiddle to the top flight basketball program, and will be at its best FOURTH IN THE DIVISION behind UF, UGA, and USC.

Yes I'm mad, I'm tired of that smoke and mirrors rhetoric, it matters little what conference you are in if you have zero chance of winning. UK football is a cellar dwellar, always will be.

a lot better than the shit fest in Fayetteville and Lexington can hope to claim

although you might not know about that, Arkansas has never won anything of substance so your standards might be lower

Kentucky is Indiana with the SEC brand name

again, you are just spouting off snark with no merit

EDITED to 9 games, you are correct, still there are only 6 or 7 programs that can claim that, Oregon, Boise State, and LSU come to mind

dont lie to kick it! from 2002-2012 you've won 10 games during the season 4 times.

http://www.mcubed.net/ncaaf/teams/ark.shtml

i mean, is there REALLY A BIG DIFFERENCE HERE?! yet, im not the one acting as if my program is the goddamn shiniest diamond in the mineshaft am i?

Fayeteville is actually in pretty good shape at the moment. Bret B has been recruiting decently.

it just goes back to me thinking Pelini is an asshole and his players, from what i saw in body language on the sidelines in the games i watched, seem to not enjoy his company. i understand you have to be an asshole coach but this dude.... nope.

2013 season, with a 200% more difficult schedule, the Hogs will have a better record. you can believe that.

I'm sorry I hate middling programs piggy-backing off a conference that did not have any bearing on the success at the top except for providing scheduling fodder, and that is Kentucky and a few others.

What I saw in the bowl season is Saban above everyone else and a whole lot of SEC programs that aren't any better than their opponents this year.

Took a visit to WVU today despite already picking Pitt, then sent a tweet about having a big decision to make.

Retweeted a bunch of tweets from WVU fans, and one that said, if Tyler Boyd goes to WVU it's because he is doing what is best for him, not for you.

Plus, let's face it Pitt never gets a break.

112. "I'm sure we'll finish second with him just like everyone else"
In response to Reply # 110


  

          

We've got to be leading the world in finishing in second place with big time recruits. We're about to finish second with Derrick Green, Marquez North, Johnathon Ford, Vonn Bell, Bellamy, and Carl Lawson. ANY of those guys would start from day one and potentially be program changers, but we just can't ever get over the hump.

I like Butch Jones, though. I think he'll have us back eventually.

113. "Per Rivals Bama guy..."
In response to Reply # 110


  

          

"Vonn Bell, five-star safety, Ridgeland High School (Rossville, Ga.): The five-star safety traveled to Knoxville this weekend where he received a lot love not only from the coaching staff, but also the fans during the UT-Bama basketball game. I'll give the edge to UT. The numbers are very tight at Alabama right now. I think the staff may feel pretty confident in another defensive back."

I'll believe it when I see it

111. "Top out-of-state recruiting teams Ranking the 10 CFB schools with best o..."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://insider.espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/8887427/alabama-crimson-tide-oklahoma-sooners-teams-strongest-state-recrutiing-pipelines-college-football

To win a BCS title, programs have to consistently sign blue-chip talent. Sure, player development and coaching heavily factor into success, but without a roster full of former top-ranked recruits, Alabama just doesn't win three of the past four national championships. It's that simple.

The difficulty lies in landing those preps, especially when they don't reside right in a school's backyard. Take the Tide. From 2008-2012, Nick Saban signed 48 ESPN 150 recruits, just behind Florida (52) and Texas (51) during that time frame. But less than half of them (20) were from Alabama, compared to the Gators' 33 from Florida and the Longhorns' 45 from Texas. In fact, Saban pilfered from 12 different states for the other 28. To put it another way: Without thriving out-of-state pipelines, Eddie Lacy, Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix and Amari Cooper, to name a few, wouldn't have put on a Crimson Tide jersey.

So which programs, besides the Tide, can lay claim to the strongest out-of-state pipelines over the past five years? We narrowed the field to teams that signed at least five total ESPN 150 recruits from 2008-12 (one per year). That gave us a solid sample size of 34 schools. From that sample, there were 10 programs that signed at least five ESPN 150 recruits out of a single state besides their own. Finally, we ranked them based on total recruits from that state, and then determined whether the pipeline remains plentiful (or is drying up) as signing day 2013 approaches.

(Note: It's worth mentioning that while Michigan only signed four ESPN 150 recruits from the state of Ohio over the past five years, Brady Hoke has six ESPN 300 commits this year. Washington also has five ESPN 300 commits from California, compared to two over the past five years.)


1. Oklahoma Sooners
Out-of-state pipeline: Texas (14 ESPN 150 recruits from 2008-12)
STATUS: FLOWING (four ESPN 300 recruits committed for 2013; three four-star recruits in 2012; five ESPN 150 recruits in 2011)

The pipeline might be short, but when you consider all the options Texas kids have in-state, what Bob Stoops has been able to accomplish over the past five years is staggering. The Sooners signed more ESPN 150 recruits from the Lone Star State than Texas Tech, TCU, Baylor and Houston combined, as well as out-recruiting Texas A&M (12). Although OU was shut out in the ESPN 150 last year, three four-star recruits from Texas signed, and this year Stoops secured a verbal from Texas' No. 2 prospect, running back Keith Ford (Cypress, Texas).


2. Auburn Tigers
Out-of-state pipeline: Georgia (eight)
STATUS: DRYING UP (one ESPN 150 recruit committed for 2013; two ESPN 150 recruits in 2012; three ESPN 150 recruits in 2011)

On average, the majority of ESPN 150 recruits hail from three states: Florida, Texas and California. But the Peach State comes in a close fourth, and to former coach Gene Chizik's credit, he not only went into Florida and landed five recruits, but grabbed more out of Georgia than any other program other than UGA from 2008-12. (The Tigers top No. 3 Clemson because a higher percentage of their total ESPN 150 recruits were from Georgia.) That being said, Auburn fans are in wait-and-see mode with new head man and former O-coordinator Guz Malzahn. While he does have a verbal from the nation's No. 2 prospect, defensive end Carl Lawson (Alpharetta, Ga.), there's a chance that changes by Feb. 6. Two juco commits, defensive tackle Ben Bradley and athlete Nick Marshall, call Georgia home but don't necessarily indicate a continued trend.


3. Clemson Tigers
Out-of-state pipeline: Florida (eight)
STATUS: DRYING UP (zero ESPN 300 recruits committed for 2013; one ESPN 150 recruit in 2012; three ESPN 150 recruits in 2011)

In 2008, Dabo Swinney went into the Sunshine State and signed Jamie Harper and Kyle Parker. Three years later, he landed Tony Steward and Sammy Watkins. So maybe we should save judgment for 2014, because Clemson has struck out with every ESPN 300 recruit from Florida in 2013. Tight end Jordan Leggett (Navarre, Fla.) and athlete Jayron Kearse (Fort Myers, Fla.) are four-star recruits but have nowhere near the hype of Watkins & Co. coming out of high school.


4. Ohio State Buckeyes
Out-of-state pipeline: Florida (seven)
STATUS: FLOWING (one ESPN 150 recruit committed for 2013; one four-star recruit in 2012; one ESPN 150 recruit in 2011)

Funny that Urban Meyer, the man who will likely make OSU a desired destination in the Southeast, had nothing to do with these seven recruits over the past five years. But after blanking in Florida last year, Meyer has the Buckeyes back on track with a verbal from ESPN 150 defensive tackle Joey Bosa (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.). (Ohio State is ranked ahead of Alabama because a higher number of its ESPN 150 recruits were from Florida.) Once Meyer is out from under sanctions, we assume he'll attract many more recruits from his former stomping grounds.


5. Alabama Crimson Tide
Out-of-state pipeline: Florida (seven)
STATUS: FLOWING (one ESPN 150 recruit committed for 2013; three ESPN 150 recruits in 2012; two ESPN 150 recruits in 2011)

As we mentioned in the introduction, Saban has no problem going into almost any state and convincing a top recruit to play for Alabama. He also signed seven ESPN 150 prospects from Georgia over the past five years, but we gave the nod to Florida because the Tide's No. 1 recruit in 2013, athlete Derrick Henry (Yulee, Fla.), is from there. Since 2008, Alabama has signed Trent Richardson, Clinton-Dix, Chris Black and Cooper from Florida.


6. Tennessee Volunteers
Out-of-state pipeline: Florida (6)
STATUS: DRYING UP (zero ESPN 300 recruits committed for 2013; two ESPN 150 recruits in 2012; three ESPN 150 recruits in 2011)

Strictly by the numbers, we have to rank the Vols this high. (Their six Florida signees from 2008-12 is a higher percentage of their total ESPN 150 recruits than Florida State and USC.) But Tennessee better hope new head coach Butch Jones can put the program back on the recruiting map -- in Florida or any other state across the Southeast. The Vols have just one ESPN 300 commit for 2013 (quarterback Riley Ferguson of Matthews, N.C.), which is their lowest total since 2008. Outside linebacker Corey Vereen (Winter Garden, Fla.) is the only sign of upper-tier talent from the Sunshine State.


7. Florida State Seminoles
Out-of-state pipeline: Georgia (six)
STATUS: DRYING UP (one ESPN 300 recruit committed for 2013; one ESPN 150 recruit in 2012; one ESPN 150 recruit in 2011)

The Seminoles have been consistent in Georgia (Greg Reid being the biggest get in 2009), but have too much to mine in Florida to make their living elsewhere. Jimbo Fisher's only Peach State commit for 2013, defensive end Davin Bellamy (Chamblee, Ga.), was just two spots away from falling outside the ESPN 300. (And he could still flip his commitment.)


8. USC Trojans
Out-of-state pipeline: Florida (six)
STATUS: FLOWING (one ESPN 150 recruit committed for 2013; two ESPN 150 recruits in 2012; one ESPN 150 recruit in 2011)

The fact that the Trojans leave California at all is rather surprising, but even more impressive is their ability to go across the country and land the likes of Nickell Robey and Leonard Williams. This year's coast-to-coast haul is safety Leon McQuay III (Seffner, Fla.). Like Meyer, Lane Kiffin should see an uptick in this talent-rich state once his scholarship reductions are lifted.


9. Oregon Ducks
Out-of-state pipeline: California (five)
STATUS: FLOWING (one ESPN 300 recruit committed for 2013; two ESPN 150 recruits in 2012; two ESPN 150 recruits in 2011)

With Chip Kelly gone, it will be interesting to see how California kids who are worthy of USC, UCLA and Stanford offers react to new head coach and former O-coordinator Mark Helfrich. But you can't argue with the likes of DeAnthony Thomas, Devon Blackmon and Arik Armstead over the past two years alone. This year, wide receiver Tyree Robinson (San Diego) is the lone ESPN 300 recruit from the Golden State, but fellow receiver Darren Carrington (San Diego) and athlete Tyrell Robinson (San Diego) are both four-star prospects.


10. LSU Tigers
Out-of-state pipeline: Texas (five)
STATUS: DRYING UP (zero ESPN 300 recruits committed for 2013; zero ESPN 150 recruits in 2012; zero ESPN 150 recruits in 2011)

For the first time since 2008, LSU doesn't have a single commit, no matter the ranking, from Texas. Texas A&M's move to the SEC has certainly affected the Tigers, who used to sell the opportunity to play in the nation's premier conference and remain closer to home. Les Miles couldn't convince ESPN 150 recruits, wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones (Sealy, Texas) or defensive tackle Justin Manning (Dallas), to shun LSU's new SEC West rival.

115. "UCLA shows Asiantii Woulard the town (swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

According to Jack Wang of the DN today...

Four-star quarterback Asiantii Woulard visited UCLA this weekend. Among the things that impressed him: seeing P. Diddy at the W Hotel, talking to Maurice Jones-Drew and catching sight of the Playboy Mansion.

He won't officially decide until signing day Feb. 6, but that didn't stop ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer from linking him to Westwood.

Woulard's father said recently that the dual-threat quarterback--rated No. 4 in the country by Rivals and No. 1 by ESPN -- has zeroed in on UCLA and Clemson as his top two choices. The latter was one of the earliest to chase the Winter Park, Fla., prospect.

Woulard, 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, only played quarterback his junior and senior years, but has significant upside. He won MVP at the Elite 11 quarterback competition last summer when he was still considered a South Florida commit.

and, it would seem, a bit less picky as well.

Offers flying out to kids we had already passed on earlier in the process, and he's zipping all over the place.

I expect us to flip both Johnny Ragin and Cameron Hunt (admittedly we were on Hunt before CK's departure) from Cal, and we've jumped into the race for GA DE Davin Bellamy who just dc'd from FSU and is visiting this weekend.

after him watching him basiclly maul our kids for 3 quarters when Narbonne played Corona Cenntenial..

the dude is big...huge....and he has a nasty streak to him too...

now for most of the night he was blocking a DE who he outweight by about 100 pounds....

when we made an adjustment and moved Paulo Lepua to DE ....he worked Cameron Hunt..and actually Hunt had to go to the hospital after the game..


but he's one heck of an OT...

In response to Reply # 0
Wed Jan-30-13 04:45 PM by Warren Coolidge

  

          

since Chip left Oregon..... their LB coach has not visited Key.... not sure if that means they are out of the running.....

but if they are..that's going to leave it down to Oregon State and Washington....

if that's the case Wshington has a shot because the last 3 guys who visited UW from this school all decided to go there...and Key's teammate Troy Williams has already started school there..

I know most who know about us would rank Troy Williams and Paulo Lepua..the City Offensive and Defensive players of the year as our top prospects.... but I keep telling coaches and others that the guy with the biggest upside for the next level is Keishawn Bierria.

141. "down to the wire...espn predicting for UCLA"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Isaac Savaiinaea
Honolulu/Punahou
ESPN 300 RANK: 120
POS: ILB
DECISION DATE: TBD
UCLA

Savaiinaea had a great relationship with Brian Polian when he was an assistant at Texas A&M, but now that Polian has taken the head-coaching job at Nevada, UCLA seems to be the logical choice for Savaiinaea.

Asiantii Woulard
Winter Park, Fla./Winter Park
ESPN 300 RANK: 143
POS: QB/DT
DECISION DATE: Feb. 6
UCLA


Kentucky could make a late play and snag Woulard but all signs are pointing to Westwood at this point.


Eddie Vanderdoes
Auburn, Calif./Placer
ESPN 300 RANK: 10
POS: DT
DECISION DATE: Feb. 6
UCLA

Alabama and Notre Dame are still very much in play for Vanderdoes, but his connection to UCLA, especially defensive line coach Angus McClure, is strong enough for the Bruins to land the big defensive tackle.

Kylie Fitts
Redlands, Calif./Redlands East Valley
ESPN 300 RANK: 85
POS: DE
DECISION DATE: Feb. 6
UCLA

Fitts decommitted from USC on Jan. 8 because there were limited early enrollment spots, even though he was previously one of the Trojans' biggest advocates. If he still wants to enroll early, UCLA and Washington are his best bets. The Bruins get the nod here because it is close to home and Fitts' sister is a UCLA student.

146. "PRAISE BE TO THE ALMIGHTY ALLAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(Alex Collins ..."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

we havent had a talent like this since the three headed monster of DMac, Felix, and Hillis were playing.

great snag for Bret B, as he had been pretty underwhelming recruiting so far (cant blame him). i was impressed with the 4 star signing of OL, Dan Skipper changed from Tenn to Ark. Reeve Koehler is Hawaiian and a 4 star rated.

ive read a bit about some of the signees and and not too worried that this class cant make this team better next year.

Alex Collins signing is a game changer and a half tho. woooooo pig soooieeee

149. "Oregon pre-signing day"
In response to Reply # 0
Tue Feb-05-13 01:50 PM by sfMatt

  

          

Losing Wilson to Urban stings, but Helfrich still has a chance to close the period on an up-note, in spite of being left in a poor position with the sudden departure of Chip Kelly.

The Ducks received some positive news in the build-up to Wilson's announcement last evening, when talented San Diego (Horizon) wide receiver Darren Carrington reaffirmed his pledge to the program. Carrington had been mulling other possibilities in the wake of Chip Kelly's move to Philadelphia, but ultimately decided to move forward with his plan to make Eugene his new home, citing his recently deceased uncle and the wish he had of seeing his nephew in Oregon uniforms on Saturdays in the fall as significant source of inspiration.

Though Cal commit Johnny Ragin, a native Oregonian, did not decide to flip to Helfrich's squad, the pending commitment of offensive linemen Cameron Hunt figures to erase any ill feelings Duck fans may have about failing to convert on Ragin's long-standing in-state allegiances. Cal affiliate writers have been calling Hunt to Oregon for a few days now, and Oregon sources have been talking up the same point for an even longer period of time.

With Wilson and Carrington spoken for, Oregon is hoping that the talented and versatile Robinson twins, the last of the Ducks' suddenly-looking-around "commitments" will reaffirm some time today - this in spite of a very strong push from Steve Sarkisian and the bitter rival Washington Huskies. The Robinsons tripped to Seattle just this past weekend, and Washington made a very big impression according to numerous sources. The future of the talented athletes should be decided very soon, and Oregon would love to head into signing day knowing that Wilson was the only Chip Kelly commitment to decide to leave the flock.

Lastly Oregon is hoping for some of its other uncommitted targets to come around at the last minute. Players like USC commitment and Aggie target Torrodney Prevot (TX) could put Helfrich and Co. in much better standing in a hurry, as could recently tripped FSU decommit Davin Bellamy (GA) and Zach Cunningham (AL) who is set to pick between Vanderbilt and the Ducks, with Auburn having dropped out of the race.

150. "Losing Hunt hurts but keeping Ragin is nice"
In response to Reply # 149


          

Although Cal probably needed Hunt more than Ragin as we are pretty stacked at LB and need OL help badly.

Still, even without Hunt we are signing 5 OL with the best and biggest being OL Cochran.

I'm hoping Cal can get Enewally and Moore to commit. Enewally has been all over the map with his recruitment and supposedly Moore might have academic issues.

I also would have liked to grab one more RB in this years class but that's not likey to happen.

We end up with 6 total guys..... 5 D-1 and 1 D-2....

not bad...I was hoping for 9 we could have got there..but fell just short..

either way it's our largest class in a long long time and I believe we should end up with more guys than anyone in the area....including your Poly and Serra...which says a lot being that we're a regular public high school...

we'll be on fox sports live at 730 am out here.

158. "What a fuckup..."
In response to Reply # 152


  

          

CLK could have a top five class if he just concentrated on the state of CA while snagging a few OOS kids. Instead, he has to make a national splash trying to sign 15 5 stars and ends up alienating his actual recruiting base. He gets way too caught up in rankings instead of just filling needs with 4/5 star talent.

Look at the size of his current commitments. Only three are over 250 lbs and and he is on the verge of losing at least one of them. The rest of them don't even come close to that size. Let me know how that works out for you.

Bottom line: he's a fucking idiot. I don't know if he has an enormous ego, suicidal level self-esteem, or some fucked up mixture of both. He completely screwed UTK, but it's not unrealistic to think it would be in worse shape if he stuck around.

less chance of an imminent kiffin firing and if OSU isn't getting any of those recruits id rather them waste away at SC where they'll never ever impact the outcome of a BCS game.

"Ohio State secured commitments in the states of Florida, California, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, New Jersey and Indiana. Only 10 of the 24 signees are from Ohio, with 14 coming from outside the state borders."


and this is just year one.


>but congratulations in advance on your Big 10 championships.

Sure, as long as an undefeated season goes with it so we can go to the big game. Lol @ you doubting the big game ability of a coach who put your program back on the map.

You still mad/sad/bitter.

He gave us a huge scare, even pulled out a Tennessee orange key chain just to fool people, but in the end he stayed after flirting hard with WVU and Tenn the last few weeks.

Cleveland Schools did a big ceremony for John Hay and Glenville signees. It was cool, because they had everyone who did a letter of intent, so in addition to worley and a msu recruit (forgot his name, but he's also one of Ginn Sr's kids) you had kids who signing for akron, kent state, youngtown, howard, and a bunch more all the way down to ave maria in florida. got to see about 12 kids fulfill their life-long dreams and see all their hard work come to fruition. when they lined up all the parents behind the kids in their hats for one big group shot, everybody got a little choked up.

UCLA lists a Y position, which for some of our guys is more of a in-line TE, and for some of them is a slot WR, and for some of them is both. And I've seen a couple Alabama depth charts with the insanity of listing both a TE and a TE/H-back.

204. "CFB heads let me holla at you. "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I don't follow CFB at all. And I really don't follow CFB recruiting.

But for the past few days each time I go to read about some UK basketball news, I gotta hear about some 3 or maybe 4 star signing they just had. Or a cat who's ranked #72 top WR in the country.

Do those kids ever materialize to solid CFB players or even NFL players?

I know with hoops the likelihood is slim.

And is there a great chance 5 stars just bust?

Basically I wanna know how accurate these ratings are.

I know each team carries a lot of players and dudes have to wait forever to ball out at major schools.

207. "Football rankings are not very accurate at all"
In response to Reply # 204


  

          

Sure, certain guys come in top ranked and become stars, but because football has such big rosters and so many positions compared to Bball there is a lot more room for diamonds in the rough.

A 2nd big factor is kids at 16 and 17 are being ranked and by the time they are 22 or 23 have a totally different body physique. You can look at pretty much any past year's rankings and be like who the fuck is that? about many of the top 50 players.

Perfect relevent example right now, Joe Flacco was an unranked 3 star QB who committed to Pitt then transferred to Delaware because he wasn't getting any time behind the highly ranked Tyler Palko at Pitt.

209. "Plenty of these lower rated guys make it to the NFL"
In response to Reply # 204


  

          

Like for example, Justin Blackmon was a 3-star, #91 rated WR, and JJ Watt was a 2-star, not even ranked DE.

And plenty enough of the 5-stars flame out, whether they suck in college or just aren't good enough to make the league (like a John David Booty, a fine college player but just not good enough for the NFL).

But there's also only around 40 5-star players, 200 or so 4 star players, and way more 3-star players. It's more of a probability than anything for certain. Just like picking in the draft, if you have a top-10 draft pick your chances of getting someone good is way higher, but that doesn't tell you if any individual player will be good, and some guy you pick in the 2nd round could still be a star.

you'll never know what kind of football player an 18-year-old will be in four years. I also think a lot of these recruiting analysts are mediocre talent evaluators.

eta: and that's why I don't care a ton about recruiting any more. yes, it's important, but I've been through enough cycles and highlight reels to know that half these guys being cheered in this thread will disappoint.

I care that we get enough guys for the right positions (always need QBs and linemen, and if all your RBs are leaving you should get some to replace them) and that the group on the whole is generally well regarded, but getting excited about any individual prospect is pointless.

EDIT: And it's pointless to get mad about a recruit flipping. That's just the nature of a bunch of coddled 17 year old kids and highly competitive coaches with a bunch of money and jobs on the line. You'll feel extra dumb when one of your big flips you get excited about comes to your school and gets kicked out for stealing a purse or something, anyway.

I think the phoniness of the recruiting industry is on the 'prediction' side of things where these analysts claim to know this or that and where X kid is heading...they're full of shit.

When I see a defensive recruit great physical measurables with offers from bama, LSU, etc. I'll go out on a limb and say there's some potential there.

217. "ranking high school players is a tricky thing..."
In response to Reply # 204


  

          

ranking high school teams in general is tricky...

a lot of these guys are ranked on video tape highlights. I could chop up a highlight tape to make a guy look like a 5 star recruit..but he may not be.... You also have to take into account the level of competition they are playing at.

the other thing too...a guy who plays in passing leagues, and goes to these high profile training camps in the summer often get more looks..and sometimes an exagerated ranking because somebody saw them with a great workout at a camp...

a guy who doesn't participate in those things...yet has a huge upside could potentially end up

there are regional biases that come into play also....

these scouts were very hard to find the guy who is under the radar and lock him in before anyone else finds out..

it's not coincidence.

recruiting rankings aren't the end all but it's certainly something. and incorporating a bust rate is a given. but if your class is ranked in the 20's you most likely won't be competing for NC's. you will not be winning games against elite squads on a regular basis.

take a look at where OSU and michigan is ranked this year relative to the rest of the big 10.

anyone want to wager how that conference is going to play out over the next 5 years?

In response to Reply # 221


  

          

You can't get too excited about individual players but the overall class ranking (over a number of years) definitely matters. One specific 5 star kid could definitely bust, but if you're bringing in a couple 5 stars and 15 or so 4 stars and you do this for a few years, your program is gonna be competing at a much higher level than a school bringing in a couple 4 stars and 15 or so 3 stars over the same amount of time.

There is an expectation that Ohio State and Michigan would be at the top, top notch facilities, recruiting base

interesting that UNL is a solid third

drop off to 4th and beyond with Penn State, Mich State and Wiscy....then again Wiscy has decidedly gotten more out their less touted recruits and been a force in the Big Ten

Interesting to see with the new coach Anderson, with Braxton Miller and Taylor Martinez terrorizing the Big Ten, not surprising he wants a mobile QB

while adhering to a program philosophy that has the potential for success. IIRC dick rod put together a highly ranked class or two but his philosophy was never gonna work so who cares.

>then again Wiscy has decidedly gotten more out their
>less touted recruits and been a force in the Big Ten

in years past, yes. with the conference changes and head coaching changes i dont see wisky continuing at the same level.

same problem UNL had with Callahan, sure you can argue the culture fit wasn't there with both of them but Robinson and Cosgrove were a complete disaster at DC

I mean the OC for UNL during that time is now piloting the Teddy Bridgewater show in Louisville. Seems to working out okay


As a side note, found it hilarious that D'antonio was pursuing Taylor's younger brother in earnest, guess that is what happens when big bro obliterates your D to the tune of 200+ yards on the ground

10 minutes ago...

the packets come with a copy to fax, and a copy to send fedex.

it's one of my favorite parts about all of this.... we fax them from the main office of the school....the principal is there with the other administrators.... it's a really cool moment for the kids...

the guys let me keep the copy of the letter of intent that I fax..so I have a bunch of them in a scrap book.

242. "true....I was told by their primary recruiter this year"
In response to Reply # 238


  

          

...again after not seeing any UCLA recruiters on our campus, or at are games in 3 years...

I was told that basiclly if a kid is a qualifier...he can stay in the mix at UCLA...

which made me feel really good because that puts my kids on their radar...

Coach Mora is on board with that.

It's great because ANY student who is a qualifier (meaning completed 16 core classes....with a GPA that meets their SAT score on the sliding scale).... Doing that is really really hard. People have no idea how much pressure the average student athlete is under to be a qualifier.

Here's the thing....an orange county school..or a private school is going to have more resources to make sure guys get their and beyond. So UCLA sticking with guys from those schools was a safe bet.

When you don't have those resources..it's really difficult just to get those kids qualified....so if they do..they deserve a chance at UCLA....
