STA kids are never allowed to commit early because they are not allowed to decommit. Their coach absolutely does not let them change their mind and decommit ever. I've never seen it happen in all my time following recruiting.

So he has them all time their time and wait til towards the end when they are 100 percent sure of their decision and nothing will change their mind.

I actually like that a lot about that coach. For instance (obviously ND-examples)
Tai-ler Jones: First commits to stanford and then announces he'll come and camp at ND and take an official. Why commit then, I hate that reserving a spot, its basicly cheating.
Corey Cooper: Committed to Illinois for an eternity already but has been at the ND campus a billion times i the mean time.

Seriously I would love getting them both, but why commit if you are not entirely sure. A lotof times guys who commit early and then decommit seem to go through a ton of commitments, just make up your mind before you bring stuff out.
Just say to a coach that you would really like to make sure and take al the visits you need.

Everything I've seen says he's a 2010 recruit. I dont think the Big 33 is all seniors. Anyway, a bunch of people who have watched Holmes extensively said Rivals and Scout missed out big time.

if he's playing in the Big 33 this summer then he is a senior. They don't let underclassmen in that game.

He loves USC, but if he loves them as much as he says, he would've commited by now. (IMO) PSU is still in the race, just USC has a decent lead. If he doesn't go to USC I'd be shocked if he's not at PSU.

That's how I feel about the situation. Sucks that USC offered because I really wanted this kid. I just hope that we can get him on campus before he commits. Didn't USC offer like 10 more guys before him? If so, I would take that as a slap in the face and not go there. But if my dream school offered me a scholarship, I would jump on it right away.

Here's a little update on the Byrnes trio. A Clemson Rivals writer caught up with them after their spring game.

Brandon Willis, four-star defensive tackle
Summer visits: FSU, Cal, Tennessee, UNC
Top 5 in order: Florida, FSU, UCLA, Tennessee, UNC

Corey Miller, four-star defensive end
Summer visits: FSU, Cal, UCLA, Tennessee, UNC
Top 5 in order: FSU, UNC, Cal, Tennessee, Oregon

Marcus Lattimore, five-star running back
Summer visits: Auburn, North Carolina, South Carolina, Penn State
Top 5 in order: Auburn, FSU, Georgia, North Carolina, Penn State.

Brandon Willis' leader is somewhat surprising. I didn't even know Florida was a player for him.

I think that was the site that was calling Matt James to ND during the spring game, so I'd take the info with a grain of salt. However, if OSU did make another QB offer, that would be telling on OSU's chances with Montana.

And Wicket, you aren't the only one. I see no reason why Tai-ler would bother to jerk ND around if he's that set on Stanford. If he's not 100% sold, then don't commit.

I've been following that site for some time to see if it's legit or not and how much of it actually pans out.

The site basically just rumor mongers every bit of info out there and reports what it knows to be true.

The info is really 50-50. Some of it turns out to be true, some it if doesn't. I have found tho that the guy posting all that stuff isnt just pulling info out of thin air (at least for Miami related stuff). He usually has good info and logic behind the stuff he posts and isnt just throwing stuff at a wall and hoping it sticks. Sometimes his info's right and sometimes it's wrong but it does come from legit sources it seems.

I find the offer amusing. It is always amusing when kids (Hagan, Wilkins are two perfect examples for '10) try so hard to position themselves for offers only to end up failing miserably. I have no clue where you got the idea that Hagan always said tOSU was his leader, but he was all about PSU and had PSU as his leader until he realized the offer wouldn't be coming...Hull committed to PSU in November of '08, fast forward to May '09 and Hagan still doesn't have an offer from PSU.

I know Michigan offered Wilkins and he is all about Michigan now, but before that this kid couldn't do anything but talk about PSU and tOSU...never got an offer from either despite his blatant fishing. Wilkins may have been the most annoying '10 recruit thus far while following PSU recruiting just because it seemed like a month or two of constant whining/positioning for a PSU and/or tOSU to offer.

"I think I'll be getting an offer from them pretty soon. Ohio State is still my favorite."

from BP:

Chad says Coach Fickell told him an offer was coming once they receive his test score. The Buckeyes are his favorite followed by PSU and Pitt."

"BN$--Chad Hagan: Did Michigan One-Up The Buckeyes?

Chad picked up a Michigan offer but says tOSU is still his clear favorite. He scored 1190 on the SAT."

We're talking about a kid with character and academic issues. He's a hell of a pass-rusher, though, and would fit the SEC SPEEDZ mold.

He'll still end up at Ole Miss I bet. They took anyone that had a pulse last year.

This DT from Arkansas Samuel Harvil put up 67 reps of 185 at 6-0 250 running a 5.16. Is that not insane or have there been other HS recruits recently who have had that kind of number on the bench?

As far as Jamel Turner is concerned, I don't know why we'd end up with him. We got Craig Drummond last year out of Chicago but he really didn't have any issues. He was going to be allowed to play at Illinois but he wanted to enroll early and they wouldn't let him do that, but we did. He wasn't getting in fights or anything like that. Turner is definitely talented though, hopefully he can get his head on straight.

I'm anxious for scout to update their rankings already...I want to see if they try to casually dick over any of the PSU commits. I'm anxious...even though stars don't mean much I allow it to occupy some of my time/thoughts. ;)

I'm hoping Adrian Coxson gets bumped up, and I've pretty much been told by different scout guys that it will certainly happen (got more film, bob l. did a review and posted highlights)...it would be sweet if he could jump up to 5* but that may be too much at this point. He has shined at the events he has shown up at to compete.

So far, I've been pretty frustrated with PSU's recruiting. We've gone after a lot of skilled positions, but not much else. We even lost Seth Betancourt, who is the real deal, to BC.

Hopefully, we can get that LB from Connecticut. He looks like the real deal.

The CT LB is Khairi Fortt, he had some glowing things to say about Auburn after having visited for their "Big Cat weekend"...but I'd imagine we are still in very good shape. Having Silas Redd committed doesn't hurt, but I don't like to bank on things like that helping....SC RB Marcus Lattimore also had glowing things to say about Auburn (again), but did also mention that he was excited to visit PSU just to check them out...or something like that.

Can't argue with PSU's recruiting...all are 4* or better on both sites, except for PA OLineman Luke Graham. Coxson can probably make the jump to 5* when scout updates tonight/tomorrow, which means we may have 2 5* prospects (@ QB/WR), 2 4* prospects (@ RB/LB), and an in-state (3*/#7 OG on scout) WPIAL OLineman...all in May....great start...a definite top 10 type start/effort without question.

I think we have something like 52-55 offers out there which isn't a lot, pretty sure I read somewhere that Michigan had 125 offers out (Rivals). We are being selective and yet getting top talent...I think most expect that we will get or are in great shape with a few prospects like WR/ATH Alex Kenney, WR Kenny Stills (if/when he visits), TE Kevin Haplea, DE/OLB Dakota Royer, LB Khairi Fortt....etc.

What I like most about the '10 PSU class this early is that pretty much every committed prospect had said prior to even having a PSU offer that they were PSU fans.

Meanwhile, the top-rated player in the Chicago area, 6-7, 250-pound tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz of Johnsburg, has 18 offers but admits Ohio State and Iowa head his list. He could commit on Sept. 12, when he attends the USC-Ohio State game in Columbus, Ohio. He admits the recruiting process "has been a lot tougher than I thought it would be."

"Originally, I thought I would commit in the spring, but now it will be in the fall," he said. "The process is pretty stressful. There is so much you have to look at. You have to know who is BS'ing you. College coaches are pulling you in a lot of different ways. I have narrowed my options, and now I must decide what is best for me."

Fiedorowicz still hasn't discounted Wisconsin and Notre Dame. Aside from the Sept. 12 trip to Ohio State, he plans to visit Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois before making his decision. It appears Ohio State would have an edge "if they use their offense like I want them to."

"I wish they used the tight end more. Last year, they used the tight end only 15 times [for passes]," he said. "If they don't change, I'll probably go to Iowa. It's not fun to be a tight end if all you do is block. I want to catch the ball, go for deep and mid-range passes. But with Terrelle Pryor in the offense, will they want to pass the ball to the tight end a lot?"

Fiedorowicz has worked hard to become the best football prospect he can be. He passed up baseball this spring to improve his quickness by sprinting on the track team. He has been timed in 11.4 seconds for 100 meters and 23.8 for the 200. He covers 40 yards in 4.5 seconds. He's a member of Johnsburg's 400-meter relay that qualified for the state finals.

-4* OL Brandon Linder names Miami his leader finally.

-4* S Brian Robinson was looking like a Miami lean but there are rumors now that he wants to go OOS.

- 3* WR Shawn Corker is down to Miami and Texas Tech.

- While he should still end up at either UF or UGA, Miami has made up some ground with 4* RB Mack Brown. FSU has as well.

- 2011's likely number 1 player MNW QB Teddy Bridgewater named UGA his early leader. He's just playing games.

- We are suddenly making up more ground with 4* OL Torrian Wilson and are back in the top 5. Not sure how much that has to do with our coaching staff starting to really recruit him or Todd Chandler being in his ear.

-We're supposedly looking real good for 3* CB Darius Robinson, 3* LB Michael Taylor, NR CB Cliff Coleman, 3* CB Keion Payne and 3* QB Turner Baty (if we decide we want him).

- OC Mark's Whipple's son is a QB at STA and Whipple spends alot of time there lately.

-Not looking so good with 4* CB Demar Dorsey, 5* LB Jeff Luc, 4* RB Eduardo Clements and 3* LB Tyrone Cornelius.

- Do be surprised if 4* TE Brian Vogler picks Miami.

That's all I got for now.

I expect they'll use the tight end more with Ballard and Stoneburner. Stoneburner will be a glorified big WR or H-Back like Kellen Winslow or Travis Beckum, not a blocker. So we'll use the TE more this year, but will we use it enough? Iowa is a tight end paradise compared to a lot of schools.

It doesn't matter...PSU didn't offer. PSU didn't offer Wilkins, PSU hasn't offered Christian. Saying that Wilkins tried fishing for tOSU & PSU offers is putting it kindly....he was on a one-two month kick where that was about all he did. The last article I saw on Wilkins was from Allen Wallace, Kenny says he is a little surprised PSU didn't offer...and that PSU wasn't recruiting him anywhere near as hard as all of the other schools.

We offered NC DE Kareem Martin about a week ago, and there is some speculation that NJ DE TJ Clemmings may have also gotten his hands on a ship but there has been no confirmation at this point. It is also expected that we lead for both PA ATH/Lineman Kyle Baublitz as well as DE/OLB Dakota Royer...so the coaches must know something or feel better about those two (or other guys already offered) than they do Wilkins.

Good luck to Wilkins at Michigan (probably?).

PAHOKEE — An assistant football coach at Pahokee Junior Senior High School was fired today after being arrested Saturday on a charge of selling drugs.

Demetres Hampton, 32, of Pahokee, had been an assistant coach at the school since 2001 and helped to coach the powerhouse Blue Devils team to last year's 2B state championship
A Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputy stopped his car Saturday night in Pahokee after noticing the smell of marijuana emanating from the window, according to an arrest report.

A search of the car turned up marijuana baggies and Ecstasy pills, the report said.

Hampton admitted to the deputy that the drugs were his and that he was planning to sell them. the report said.

It was Hampton's first arrest in Florida, records show. A background check conducted before he was hired indicated he had no previous criminal past, according to a Palm Beach County School District spokesman.

School district spokesman Nat Harrington said there is no indication that he dealt drugs to students, and that he was only on campus for practices and games during football season.

He will no longer be allowed to interact with the team, Harrington said.

It was Hampton's first arrest in Florida, records show. A background check conducted before he was hired indicated he had no previous criminal past, according to a Palm Beach County School District spokesman.

School district spokesman Nat Harrington said there is no indication that he dealt drugs to students, and that he was only on campus for practices and games during football season.

He will no longer be allowed to interact with the team, Harrington said.

Staff writer Sonja Isger and staff researcher Niels Heimeriks contributed to this story

Not sure what the big deal is with this. We are talking about Pahokee. Drugs is not even a big deal with them. They had a kid killed last year. It's a bad place. This is a non-story for that school.

Although two of them aren't locks, I'm drooling at the possibility of a defensive line class consisting of Nick Acree, Evan Hailes, Derrick Hopkins, and Zack McCray. Another defensive end probably as well, maybe Kareem Martin. Not looking good with many other ends, though. And then right behind them at linebacker three of Tahrick Peak, Nick Forbes, Brian Laiti, Travis Williams, Chase Williams, Michael Taylor, and Javarie Johnson.

Boom! And then one of my favorite prospects, the mega beast Nick Dew, at safety. I expect him to be Rivals 250 by the end of the season.

Add in another safety (Jake Skole?) and a cornerback or two (Kyle Fuller, maybe one more) and this is a beast defensive class if all pans out correctly.

I don't expect to get Hailes, though.

It just shows that we have plenty of needs and need for numbers in this next class and they're working hard to fill those.

You can pretty much forget Chase Williams and Michael Taylor.

Michael Taylor is a lock to either UGA or Miami. He ain't headed anywhere else. Chase Williams is begging LSU for an offer and seems likely to get one. If he does, it's over. Miami seems to be running 2nd there as well seeing as his dad coached Michael Barrow, our LB coach.

http://www.collegefootballtalk.com/2009/06/02/highly-touted-mizzou-recruit-taking-juco-route/

As he was the #4 rated player at any position in the entire nation by Rivals.com, the whole of Missouri Nation let out a collective sigh of relief when heavily-recruited in-state player Sheldon Richardson chose the Tigers barely over Miami of Florida this past February.

Now, though, those sighs of relief have turned into yet another round of anticipation. And, perhaps, another round of recruiting.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Richardson failed to qualify academically and will attend a California junior college for the next two seasons in order to get his grades in order. In order to maximize his eligibility at Missouri, the paper reports, Richardson will redshirt this season before playing the College of the Sequoias in 2010.

Richardson said he worked on this plan of attack with the Missouri football program, and has every intention of honoring his commitment to the university.

Im not opening up my recruiting: Its still Mizzou, the defensive end/tight end told the paper. Its going to hold up. Me and (assistant coach Cornell) Ford and (head coach) Gary Pinkel and Coach (Curtis) Allen (in California) planned a year-and-a-half and then Ill be back.

Of course, its very easy to say what one intends to do nearly two years from now. Its quite another, however, to follow through on said actions.

Especially when said player, when asked how close he was to signing with the Hurricanes this past February 4, told the reporter that it was fifty-fifty. It was up in the air.

Not suprising. Luckily we are as stacked on the DLine as we have ever been and would likely have redshirted him anyway. Next year though could be Joey and I exchanging daily emails trying to figure out what he is going to do.

On another note both Justin McCay and Marcu Lucas were at the Missouri camp in Kansas City today and apparently had a great time and have talked about going to school together. They were also hanging with commit Lucas Vincent. We have felt good about Lucas all along, but McCay has offers from everyone and if we could somehow snag him it would be a major coup.

We're not out of it for Williams. He wanted a VT offer, we recently gave it. He was high on us early but we didn't offer.

Taylor likes us, I think he is UGA bound, though.

We just offered Johnson, that's why.

The two or three LB spots are most likely to consist of Peak and Laiti/ Travis Williams/ Forbes. Which is fine by me; Chase Williams and Johnson got later offers than they did. The only early LB offer who were not a favorite on is Taylor.

OT Seantrel Henderson starts to focus search
Elite ESPNU 150 Watch List offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson is holding over 50 scholarship offers. According to affiliate Web site OUInsider.com, he has started trimming his list.

He said, "Right now it is not official, but I like Minnesota, USC, UCLA, Michigan, Iowa, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Florida State, Florida and LSU. There are some other schools, but that would be my top choices right now."

Henderson also shared what he's looking for, "I want to know the teams' depth chart and who they have coming in. I want to know if they are going to have a nice quarterback and who else they have on the offensive line. Then just being comfortable around the team and on campus, and finding a school where I can be at for the next four years, or maybe even five. I can play in any offense, and distance from home doesn't really matter."

Notre Dame, Michigan State, South Carolina, Oregon, Boston College and North Carolina are a few of the other programs that have extended offers.

Additionally, Henderson calls basketball his favorite sport and has been offered on the hardwood by Marquette and St. Louis.

I know it's early, but I'm surprised that ND isn't it.

He's said that Michigan and USC are the only two that have locked up officials. However, I do think he'll visit Iowa officially.

Ah yes..the great spotlight at Temple.

Yeah, only the fourth largest media market in the country. Not to mention ESPN will be all over us once we reach a Bowl Game, given our past situation.

Thanks for the sarcasm.

There's no bigger stage than North Philly.

Thats for damn sure.

PSU and Temple are rivals. It's one-sided, and they steal all our recruits, but it's still a rivalry. Pitt and Penn State arent really a rivalry at all.

Philadelphia isn't a college football town. He'd be dumb to pass up big-time offers to play at Temple.

You're right; it's a pro football town. Doesn't mean college football cant be embraced. It will once we go Bowling.

Enough people here care about Penn State...

I actually played both of PSU's new oline commits. My high school plays both teams every year. North allegheny is probably our biggest rival, even though they beat on us every year. Random post of the day haha

He said Pitt was a rival when he compared the situation to OSU-Michigan. The end. Nobody is talking about Temple.

Here is a real good write up on the top 100 players in the state of Florida this year, really highlights the depth we have. I know the guy that wrote this, he is an FSU fan that lives here in Hollywood. Been around forever and really does go to all the games, practices and now runs his own camps. The only major gripe I have is I think he underrates Nix and Chandler (thinks Chandler is too small and Nix basically took his junior year off), but other than that it's spot on. Nice to see my guy Lemonier get some love, who is a no doubter 5 star IMO.

Without a doubt, one of the better lists for Florida Ive seen. He does have Nix, Chandler and Robinson (nod to sniper) a tad low and guys liek BJ Butler, Corey Lemonier and Matt Elam a but too high (not as glaring in the case of Lemonier and Elam) but overall the list is solid.

Fish knows his stuff tho. I can't stand the FSU homerism he posts on Shadows board, but he knows his recruiting. Like the fact he has Delvin Jones, Demar Dorsey and Gideon Ajagbe ranked spot on. Every other place seems to overrate those guys big time.

Last note: Torrian Wilson at 63??? What the hell was he smoking with that ranking? He is top 30 at a very minimum.

Being 31 in Florida is still pretty damn good. You can make a case for 40-50 4 star players in Florida this year. The amount of quality depth is ridiculous.

eh maybe. The only ones off that list I'd debate putting below Robinson that are ahead of him are Bernard, Clements, Butler, Godfrey, Shaw, Harris and Gainer. Then there are a few I'd move ahead of him. I think it's about right...

There's alot more then just those that should be below him.

Mitchell, Watkins, Riggs, Clements, Butler, Godfrey, Green, Wright, Robey, Shaw, Harris, Silberman, Gainer aren't as good as Robinson.
