With all the big name coaching changes at schools, how can this affect national signing day? Will, most notably, michigan and arkansas be vastly affected or will petrino and whatever big name michigan signs right the respective ships?

I expect A&M, LSU, and the above to all be affected. Either by recruits overlooking those programs completely or backing out of commitments completely.

I'm just going out on a limb here, but I don't think too many people went to Michigan to play for Lloyd Carr specifically.

I think a program like Michigan is going to be able to recruit no matter who their coach is.

Arkansas might be a different story, but Petrino is arguably an upgrade, so probably not.

As far as A&M goes, they lost a much-needed top-250 DB (Markelle Martin out of Wichita Falls, four stars on Rivals) and one of the top junior DB's in Craig Loston out of Houston.

On the flip side, after Sherman came to campus they convinced a Top 150 WR to jump ship from Oklahoma in order to round out their class. He's a four-star prospect according to Rivals, but if you believe what's coming from the people within the program he was much better than Rivals gave him credit for.

It sounds like a give-and-take. The Ags' weakest positions at this point are LB and WR, but they have some young studs who may or may not step up and become key players next year (most notably Von Miller at LB and Roger Holland at WR). What they lost, though, were some young, much-needed DB's. The Ags have some athletes they recruited who may slide into DB, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Basically, it's been a wash, but from the sound of things there's a little buzz about A&M around the recruiting community. A lot are waiting to see what Sherman does before committing, so we may have to wait until next year before we see anything, but they still have that last scholly open in case they pick up a big recruit between now and the end of the year. If they pick up another four- or five-star, it'll wind up being every bit the class that Fran had lined up. It's already top ten. I guess we'll see.

Darron Thomas decommited from LSU, think it had to do something with the coaches saying something and doing something else. Decided on Oregon over Florida. Think LSU lost another QB too

Yeah LSU had Darron and D C Jefferson committed, but DC did not want to deal with competition according to his coach so he backed out and went back to Rutgers.

Darron was upset with LSU having 3 QB's committed and the word was he would be moved to another position, so he left as well.

as happy as i am rutgers got DC i still believe once a player commits he should stick with it as he should sign his LOI right from the start not change around... well if that were the case DC woulda been at rutgers from the start he'll be beastly for us

and seriously how many qbs do LSU need they got one thats enough and hes a good one... not the best but good

Darron Thomas decommitted because he wanted to play QB and he wasn't going to at LSU, I think.

DC Jefferson knew he was never going to get onto the field, if for no other reason than because LSU already had a guy better than him in the class (Jordan Jefferson is a stud)

No exactly, it had more to do with LSU telling him one thing and doing another. He actually wouldnt mind playing WR (said its his fav position). Hes going to Oregon where he knows they are after Pryor and good chance get Chris Harper.

Oregons gonna be scary... wait if hes considered a WR too why isnt he rated as an ATH? he'd be among the top spots

Both DC and his Mom said LSU lied to them. They had to cut his HS coach out of the process because he was pushing them to LSU.

I read in an interview he likes WR better then QB and wouldnt mind playing it. At Oregon he will play QB only if Pryor comes. The reason hes not at LSU is because they lied to him.

I completely disagree about the Carr comment.

Running backs are my specific example. They love Michigan because they can run behind a great line, and get the ball 25+ times a game. Now that Carr is gone, that is going to change.

sam mcguffie is in a better offense than he was before there no reason why he shouldnt tear it up with his athleticsm with Rich's offense... Noel Devine has superior athleticsm but their measurables are comparable in a way and he tore it up in the limited time he was in.
