I think Michaelee Harris has a better chance of having a Marcus Hall like recruitment then Torrian Wilson does. Michaelee is at least open to the idea of other schools. From what I understand, Wilson is just doing lip service to everyone. He isn't expected to pick anywhere but Miami. Michigan would be 2nd on his list tho. Been saying that for a long time.

Combine that with the fact that he'll be camping in south bend this summer (along with pOSU and Iowa) and we should at least be considered one of the prime contenders.

He's not gonna get it though. Pete has offered numerous OT's outside cali and no offer for Seantrel. Petey is usually the first to jump on elite talents, so something is not right.

I have yet to see anything or hear anything that says we have even spoken to Derby. The Rivals database in the only this that even shows our name associated with Derby.

If someone can provide and solid info or articles to back this, its be greatly appreciated. If not, I'm calling BS. We would have heard something down here (especially if it was a QB we were seriously after) and those offer databases are wrong a lot of the time.

In other news:

-Joyner is a done deal to FSU after staying to meet with Buckley for another day.

-I've read from a few places that Auburn is making a huge push for Seastrunk and Reed and they are serious about Auburn. Supposedly they loved the visit and are the team to beat. I still think they finish at LSU but I've seen froma few places that they are getting real serious and real comfortable at Auburn.

- I'm expecting Cody Riggs to commit to ND after this weekend. I know Fiedorowicz has been talked about on here alot. I don't know a ton about him but I keep seeing that he is also extremely likely to commit to them this weekend.

Good to hear about McGee; I like him more than Marshall. If Joyner does go to FSU (which I have always seen him at if he doesn't stay in Miami), great pull and I am just glad that UF didn't get the best player in the state. All three schools are going to have superb classes this year, but then we've know this and have been saying it for at least a year and half-two years.

-Naples RB Darion Hall is rumored to be a silent. Kind of out of the blue. He is a big back 6'1 200. That is expected to be the compliment to either Eduardo Clement or Giovanni Bernard in this class. Also a chance we could take 3 RBs depending on who they are. Take this with a grain of salt as I'm not sure how much is rumor and how much is legit.

-Brian Robinson is expected to commit to Miami fairly soon.

-Our rivals guy says WR Ivan McCartney and DE Corey Lemonier and pretty set to come here.

As long as ND doesn't lose out on Anthony Barr, it's all good. His uncle should have some sway, and his dad should too. Plus I think his mom went to St. Mary's, and that's just across the street from ND.

Whoa Hall is definitely out of the blue, just read the article on him the other day where he talks about us and SMU being his top schools. Haven't seen anything on him though, just know the measurables and that he averages over 10 YPC and nearly 20 YP catch.

Great to hear about Robinson and I like us being the first team one of them has committed to and the great thing about the STA kids is once they commit, they are DONE. Hopefully he is a good recruiter for us.

I kinda like the Hall pickup. He's a huge back. I should easily grow in the 6'1 225 range. I love the Idea of that. He would be a welcome addition. Plus he's got a nice offer list. Michigan, WVU, Clemson, Wisconsin, Kansas and us. Plus Ohio State is on the verge of an offer as well.

Looks like a nice scouting job to jump on him with us not likely Gore and kids like Gainer and Clements looking elsewhere. Although I still think we get Clements when it's all said and done.

Also starting to think we are going to be able to switch Demar Dorsey at some point. We have been on him pretty good as he has the size we are looking for at CB. Plus it's looks like a given that he will decommit and we do very well at Boyd Anderson HS.

Yes, because a top 150 4* player with confirmed offers from more than a handful of big name schools is the same exact situation.

I'm not saying he definitely has an offer, but you acting like because you don't know about it means it probably isn't true is hilarious. I know you're really into recruiting for Miami and part of Florida and I can respect the information that you share and appreciate it. But honestly, give me one good reason a prospect like Derby has to BS an offer from Miami? If he wanted to make himself seem bigger than reality, why not pick a bigger program that would give him more recognition? It's not like he hasn't been 1/3 of the Big XI, Florida, Alabama, or Nebraska, with interest from others.

Then stop being a dick. How about that?

1st off, I never said it wasn't true. I said I wasn't ready to buy into a database system that we all know is flawed. I asked for any confirmation on it. So far, I have yet to see an article, a quote from Derby, an analyst, or anything out of Miami that confirms an offer. So until I see something concrete, I'll be skeptical on it seeing as the database is the only thing that has it up and they notoriously flawed.

2nd, I never said Derby made up the offer. You did. I merely responded to you and said it does happen all the time. For all I know a guy inputting all the info could have mistakenly marked that in his profile. I never said Derby was going around claiming an Miami offer that he didn't have. You assumed that's what I meant.

You need to calm down and stop being a dick. You are being a ass for no reason. All I did was say I was skeptical on a piece of information because I have seen zero confirmation on it at all. You assumed the rest and have treated me like crap bashed on your assumptions.

BYU would be my best guess, but if UW improves and looks decent this year (which is saying much) he'll stay home.

BYU really?

Is he Mormon?

I know we aren't in his top 10 but we hadnt offered at that point but he did point in his last article that most of his top 10 is in the SEC or ACC. Lead me to believe he was interested in leaving home but you guys are all saying he's staying close?

He's just trying to stir the pot and get notice with all this SEC and ACC talk I assume?

BTW, ya'll have info on any of these recruits?

Brandon Willis, DE
Gabe King, DE
Ego Ferguson, DE
Garrison Smith, DE
Corey Nelson, OLB
Terrence Mitchell, CB
Ronnie Vinson, CB/S

-Ego is easily the most open prospect I have seen in a long time. He's considering alot of SEC, ACC and northeast schools along with a few west coast schools. He has about 25 schools he's been naming and he hasn't even begun to mention when he will cut his list. He is easily going to be the funnest prospect to watch make a decision as no one seems to have any idea what his top options are.

-Terrence Mitchell named FSU his leader and is pretty much a lock to them.

He is, which is why some ND fans thought Te'o could help sway him to ND. But all I've ever heard the kid discuss in interviews was UW and the turnaround he expected there.

Unless Sark & Co. totally tank it this year, I think he's a Husky.

And I read that Ferguson's mom was pretty much done once he got the ND offer. She's sold on ND's academics and alumni network.

I usually buy the parent stuff when it becomes obvious they are pushing a kid somewhere. But when they aren't pushing, it's usually a non-issue.

Ego's mom might prefer ND but judging by his comments, she's not exactly pushing him there.

It's similar to Louis Nix situation. Nix's mom prefers UF but Louis likes us more and his mom has been willing to sit with our staff and has been open to the process despite her preferring UF. She is letting Louis make his own decision and at this point, he is firmer to us then ever.

As as long as Ego's mom isn't getting pushy, he seems very open to numerous different places. And so far she doesn't seem to be even a little pushing as he has been on trips all over the place seeing different schools.

So what if he was offered today and there is no article yet? Just because there is no article at this very moment doesn't mean it isn't true.

You said unless there is an article, you're calling BS. Basically implying that if there is no article to back up rivals saying he has an offer, that it is made up. I may have jumped to the conclusion in saying that he made it up, but you are basically saying that right now it's made up (by someone) if there is nothing else besides rivals saying so.

I honestly am sorry for being a dick, but almost all of your posts you act like if you don't know about it then it isn't true, and it's really, really annoying. Like I said, I appreciate your information and knowledge, but honestly, get off your high ******* horse and thinking that you are first hand knowledge and the end all be all for everything Miami football. I have no problem with you asking for an article or further proof, but acting like it's complete BS that Miami would offer someone without your knowledge is absolutely hilarious.
then once the article comes out, it can be confirmed. it's not really that hard.

just the fact that told is the person saying it is reason enough for it to be doubted.

Paul Jones AND Robert Bolden are visiting this weekend. Very strange IMO. It would be awesome if we could land both of them, but either one would do. I perfer PJ, though. ;)

FWIW I had thought Paul Jones was just visiting this Saturday, while Bolden is leaving for PSU on Friday (today) and staying throughout the weekend. Also some chatter that MD WR Adrian Coxson, SC OL/DL AJ Cann, and SC TE/DE Justin Henderson may be visiting this weekend...those three are far from confirmed though.

I know Joe told Adrian to go for the UnderArmour AA thing the week of the B-W game (the following weekend - 4/25), and Henderson is supposed to be attending the B-W game with his father while bringing Cann along....so I can't imagine how or why Henderson/Cann would visit this weekend, go home, then return for the B-W game the following weekend.

Hearing 2-3 verbals at/around the time of the B-W game...we shall see. Some are running with facebook rumors on CT RB Silas Redd - but this is from legit sources saying 2 or 3 and nowhere near that flimsy.

More Miami news:

-Naples RB Darion Hall is rumored to be a silent. Kind of out of the blue. He is a big back 6'1 200. That is expected to be the compliment to either Eduardo Clement or Giovanni Bernard in this class. Also a chance we could take 3 RBs depending on who they are. Take this with a grain of salt as I'm not sure how much is rumor and how much is legit.

-Brian Robinson is expected to commit to Miami fairly soon.

-Our rivals guy says WR Ivan McCartney and DE Corey Lemonier and pretty set to come here.

GREAT GREAT news. Robinson is a HUGE signing. Him and Maque will be nasty. Bernard and Linder next plz. It's too bad we can't get Riggs or Joyner though.

WHy I wouldn't jump off a cliff over any of those:

---Hurst eliminating us because he didn't like that we upgraded the O-Line coach is telling. He potentially could have been Matt Carufel redux for ND. Better to move on to other targets.
---Henderson cancelled his visit due to a death in the family reportedly. He'll still be camping at ND in a few weeks.
---Fiedorowicz would be a luxury signing. Rudolph and Fauria are just about to be sophomores. Ragone will be a redshirt soph, and Eifert and Golic are about to enroll in a few weeks. That's the deepest TE has been in awhile, which means ND can wait a year to sign another TE.
---Jones picking Stanford could also mean he picked where the depth chart favored him. Floyd, Tate, Kamara, Walker, Goodman, Evans, and Toma will all be there when he hits campus, and Daniel Smith and another WR will be in his class. That's a lot of competition.
---Gody isn't hiring an agent. He could be back.

Know anything about the lefty (QB) from Surry County, Montel White? He doesn't have any offers right now, but he is visiting PSU for spring practice...Rivals lists him at 6'5 202 pounds with a 4.8 forty.

PSU S coach Kermit Buggs was the head football coach at Surry County high at one point in time (for 3, 4 or 5 years...not long), won a state championship and was division COY...so this kid obviously intrigues me as a possible #2 QB for our '10 class.

Surry County's Montel White threw a pretty ball with great arm strength though he tended to overshoot receivers on the deep routes. At 6-foot-5, White has desirable size and a whip-like arm, so attention on him should pick up as his exposure does."

FiedoraweianfwaoRNfqf wrote that Iowa and Ohio State were his top two in a blog he writes for Bucknuts. HE wrote it.

From what I'm hearing, OSU might not offer because they got a similar player last year and they're tight on schollies. That leaves Iowa in a pretty good position.

Overall, I'm very excited about the possibilities for Iowa's 2010 class.

If we lock up the in-state talent alone than we will have some quality players:
Brandon Schreff- 6-7 275lb. OT with offers from Iowa, ISU, Nebraska and Missouri
James Kohler- 6-7 240lb. OT with offers from Iowa, ISU, KSU, Stanford and Missouri
A.J. Derby- everyone knows enough
Andre Dawson- 6-1 210lb. RB with offers from Iowa, Illinois, KU, Cinci, Wisconsin and Purdue
Matt Hoch- 6-5 230lb. DE with offers from Iowa, ISU, Stanford and Missouri (he might be tough)
James Morris-6-2 215lb. LB Committed in 2007. Offer from Stanford. Son of equipment manager. Iowa Gatorade Player of the Year as a junior.

Then when you add in the players we have committed and the ones that list us near or at the top, this class is looking pretty strong for the Hawkeyes. Certainly stronger than last year at this time.

Pete went "pfftt" to Manti Te'o and Ethan Johnson? Dayne Crist? Jimmy Clausen? Darrin Walls? Chris Martin?

I was pretty sure he wanted them....

Anybody questioning Randy's recruiting right now is a moron (read: everyone at our rivals site :rolleyes: ), he pulled two big uglies from Jacksonville that Florida wanted badly, that is almost unheard of for Miami.

Manti and Martin, yes, the rest not really. Most trojan fans don't even know about Ethan or Darrin and everybody knows Clausen and his whole family are lame pretenders. Crist is legit, but Carroll crew really cared. For each of those recruits I can give you two that pete got instead.

Trojan fans knew who Ethan is, or at least the ones I know. 5* DEs on the West Coast always get attention from USC.

Clausen was considered a lock to SC. When he went to ND instead, Pete put the full court press on Crist. I personally never expected Crist to ink with ND with Clausen already there.

Which this is why this is Charlie's put up or shut up year. A 10-3 record should be the benchmark for this year considering the inexpereince some of ND's opponents have at key positions. If ND is sitting at 3-3 halfway through the season, ND's AD better start the coach search process and land whoever it takes to return ND to glory.

The story was backed up by another guy I know who is the brother-in-law of a recently graduated USC star player. A 3rd guy I know went to USC and still has connections there, and he also thought it was a done deal.

And I don't mean like mentioning it the same day Rivals mentions it...I mean like months in advance.

Ok, everyone listen to this. Quit drooling over your petty Big 10 battles over 3 stars.

JAKE HEAPS IS DOWN TO HIS TOP 5 AND UW IS IN IT!!!!!!!

link: http://www.kjram.com/pages/huskies_top_stories.html

and what he said on kjr today:

and announced that he has officially narrowed his choices of schools from 10 down to five.

Heaps said that the schools include, in no particular order:

Brigham Young
California
LSU
Tennessee
Washington

Heaps gave a brief description of why each school was still in the running.

On BYU: "It's a school that is of my faith. It is a school that I have a very unique opportunity to represent my faith, but also coach (Bronco) Mendenhall has done a great job with that school. In a four year period, there's only, I think, about six or seven schools that have won more or as many games as they have."

On California: "Coach (Jeff) Tedford is an awesome quarterback coach. He has a great program down there. They always have a great line. Just the education part of it is fantastic."

On LSU: "It's big time football. It's in the SEC. I really like coach (Les) Miles and coach (Gary) Crowton. I believe coach Crowton has a great offensive mind and they're always near the top:

On Tennessee: "I really believe in coach (Lane) Kiffin and their staff and what they're trying to do down there. I believe that they're going to get the talent around there. The community support and everything down there is just unbelievable. They have one of the nicest facilities in the country and their fan base is telling them it's not good enough. So they're getting it all revamped. They're getting $80 million new facilites and everything. I enjoy the offense and I believe in who I'm going to be coached by and I believe who I'm going to be coached by is going to coach me up real well."

On Washington: "It's the home town school. I get to spend time with you guys (Dawgman) everyday. I get to spend time with my friends and family and play in front of everybody who knows me and just have that neat experience of staying home. I really do believe in (coach Steve) Sark(isian) and the coaching staff and what they're doing and I really believe they are going to get things done."

Heaps is the top recruit in the country according to Scout.com

2. BYU - He is LDS. He likes Bronco and likes the program. He should hate the weather and lack of diversity.
3. Tenn - Kiffin is a sick recruiter, but I dont see him going to the south.
4. Cal - Really only has Tedford as the only thing working for them. No shot
5. LSU - Plethora of QB's already, so I don't think he'll add on to that.

Actually, that's exactly what it is. Unless somewhere in the book of Mormon there is a passage about winning football games.

It's the same thing with Notre Dame. The merging of religion and sports in general is just weird, but particularly when you think that somehow you are playing on behalf of your particular God.

If he's telling the truth when he says he wants to take his game to the NFL level, he'll give Tennessee more consideration than you're giving them credit for.

Tennessee plays in the SEC, he would have more talent around him at Tennessee early on, he'll have a great opportunity to start as a true freshman.

Tennessee is definitely top 3 at this point if not top 2. No doubt UW is probably in the lead, I just think it's not a huge gap.

It would seem that '10 MI QB Robert Bolden is really interested in PSU...said he loved his PSU visit and hopes to make a return visit as well as catch a game. Hung out with the coaches, players, got his picture taken with Joe, toured the campus. I find it odd that we invited three QBs the same weekend ('10 PA QB Paul Jones - PSU "commit", '10 MI QB Robert Bolden, '10 VA QB Montel White). I want to keep PJ, who wouldn't as he is a 5* QB on scout, but at this point my hopes have been slightly elevated with regard to Bolden. Newsome and PJ apparently struck up a friendship as well, got along really well so that is a bonus...and of course '09 5* OT Eric Shrive was up at PSU yet again. ;) Love the Shrive.

- ND seems to be a frontrunner for Matt James and James Stone although its not a done deal for either.
- Khairi Fortt loved ND but doesnt seem to be a big fan of tenuta. that could hurt us and could even mean he commits next week at psu imo.
- Justin McCay, Cody Riggs, Lo Wood, Nick Montana, Spencer Boyd and James Stone all stayed for an extra day. If there are any commits to be expected look at those guys (not all of them obviously)

- Khairi Fortt loved ND but doesnt seem to be a big fan of tenuta. that could hurt us and could even mean he commits next week at psu imo.
- Justin McCay, Cody Riggs, Lo Wood, Nick Montana, Spencer Boyd and James Stone all stayed for an extra day. If there are any commits to be expected look at those guys (not all of them obviously)

Every recruit said they had a great/terrific time but dont they always say that. dont hold much value in that.

I do too think Fortt will commit to Penn State next week with his good friend Silas Redd. It would be a great day if those two commited.


Michigan gets a commitment from MD LB Javarie Johnson. He's a 3* player with impressive film and a decent offer list (UConn, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan State, and West Virginia).

I too loved his film. He will be a solid rush backer.

Seems to be some confusion with the Johnson commitment. Michigan insiders haven't confirmed it but Bob L has said a coach from Dunbar told him. I guess its a wait and see to actually hear it from Johnson. Looks to have some nice film. Has a great frame and could be a high reward type player. Good pickup if true.

ND feels pretty confident about Lo Wood. Still hearing that Michigan is way out in front and with all the Florida commits/players they have gotten the past year and change, can't see him anywhere but at Michigan.

I hope Johnson doesn't commit to Michigan. Hopefully he sees that there are 2 1st round picks from his school that have found success at Illinois (Benn, Vontae Davis), and several more that will be starters/ possible NFL players (Nate Bussey, Reggie Ellis, and keep an eye on Ugo Uzodinma...he has BIG time potential as a DT or a 3-4 type of end...6'5, 270 pounds and growing).

His coach wants to show other schools that his players aren't automatically going to Illinois, so as a result Deon Long went to WVU last year, and Johnson may go somewhere else this year. I understand he wants his kids to be as recruited as possible and wants as many kids recruited as possible, but college coaches shouldn't be mad if the players like Illinois. They shouldn't threaten to stop "wasting their time" recruiting at Dunbar because of that.

Missouri picked up a couple of big guys this weekend after our spring game:

Mitch Morse: Not much about him on the recruiting sites, but he's an OT from Texas that's 6-6 282 lbs.

Lucas Vincent: A DT from Kansas who we a really excited about. He 6'3 270 lbs. and apparently pretty athletic.

We've done a great job in the last couple of years of really building our lines on both sides of the ball.

BWillie,

Any word on Marcus Lucas's visit with you guys? We think we lead on him and really want him hear but he threw a curveball heading to the Nebraska spring game over ours. He's a guy worth fighting over and I'm not real comfortable with him heading up there.

Unless Lucas stretches out his process, he should be all Mizzou.

If Daddy Gabbert (he loves Shawn Watson for some reason) convinces Tyler to go to Nebraska and Keeston Terry commits as expected, then we may have a much better shot. But even then, I still think the draw to Mizzou for him is still there and he cannot get away from it.

I think his mom and coaches made it up for the game. So maybe I am underestimating our chances. But I've only heard that he is a complete longshot so that's all I can go on.

Yeah, I've heard that on Gabbert's dad. He isn't nearly as ready entering college as his brother, but has some decent long term potential. I'm not losing sleep over Gabbert and figure it's a coin flip at this point. I'm suprised that you say Terry is an expected commit because most Mizzou folks seem to have a feel that he is an MU lean with KU a very close 2nd. I've heard your in the mix but didn't know it was that serious. He's a big kid and going to make someone a nice receiver. Thanks for the info on Lucas. I'm really hoping he comes here and was nervous of him making the trip north. Let me know if you hear anything else.

Yeah, I don't know the infatuation that the Gabbert's father has with our OC, but he loves him for some reason. I mean, the guy tried to get Blaine to switch back to Nebraska late in the game but Blaine refused.

I actually really like Tyler. I think if he were 2-3 inches taller he would have offers from everyone. But even still, at his little size, dude has a cannon on him. He's really like a 6'0 185lbs version of his brother. Only thing is with Tyler, he will probably have to work constantly out of the gun wherever he goes unless he hits a growth spurt.

But yeah, I would say Nebraska leads for Terry. I've heard the only team really competing with Nebraska right now is Kansas and that is thanks to Terry's father.

Its not a done deal but Notre Dame looks to be in a good shape to snatch a trio of defensive backs in Lo Wood, Cody Riggs and Spencer Boys. The three are in good shape and Boyd admitted to be close to committing when offered and hesatating to commit at the spring game but is taking time a bit back home to be "100 percent sure".
Personally I expect him to commit in the next couple of weeks and Cody and perhaps Lo to follow him in the summer.
Would be sweet to grab those guys. All of them have impressive offer lists although none of them are ranked. But I'll give a sample of the offers just to show you why I'd be more than content to get them.
Riggs: ND(obviously), pOSU, USC(east), WF, FSU, Miami, and a few more
Wood: ND, Ga Tech, Michigan, Stanford, Virginia
Boyd: Duke, Michigan, Vandy, Stanford, Ole Miss(but then again they offer everybody).

I think all three of them are at least high three star players but Joey (since you've prolly seen them and are lest biased on this part) I'd love to see how you would rate them. I say al high three stars with all of them having a shot at a fourth in order of probability riggs, boyd and then wood.

We'll see how Lo feels after the summer when he plans on camping here. Early reports were that he would commit the next time he visited. I know he stopped by Michigan on Sunday but just to look at a few things before his flight left. I feel somewhat confident about him but recruiting is always a weird situation. I would want Cullen and Dior over and also Robey but would not turn away his commitment. Still quite a few good prospects out there in the secondary for us to snag if Lo doesn't work out. Kid can play from what I have heard though.

I'm really high on Riggs. If you can past his lack of size you'll see a DB that's very quick, sticks to his man and shows some physical nature in his coverage and run support. I definitely think he'll be a 4*. If Joyner is a top 5 player in this class...Riggs has to be a 4*. There's not THAT much separation between them.

Yeah, at one time most Nebraska insiders considered Scherff a heavy Nebraska lean. Coaches haven't been able to keep up the lead we once had though. Hopefully he does visit so we can build that relationship we once had.

Also, for Bphilb, sounds like we lead for Baby Gabbert. Tyler and his father are trying to convince momma Gabbert (who is a big Mizzou fan) to come to Lincoln so that she can meet Pelini. Sounds as if they are just wanting mom to give her blessing.

Nah. Scherff was offered about 2 months ago during our 'Junior Day'.

Our coaches are freaks when it comes to kids coming in, getting measured to make sure they are actually the height and weight they have listed, plus have Dobson (S&C coach) look at their frame to determine what kind of weight they could possibly put on. After the coaches got Scherff in, they offered on the spot.

Unfortunately for us, we have Barney Cotton as our OL coach. Dude costs us more recruits than he gets us simply because he is a complete moron when it comes to relating to kids. He attempts to be 'cool', but comes off like a complete loser to all these kids.
