Dominique Easley DE
This guy is a beast. I seen him play against my HS this past fall/winter and I can say that he will be an impact player at the college level. He has already gotten 18 scholarships. Which ever school he decides to go will be getting one heck of a football player. I cant wait to see him again this year as a senior.

Looked real good at DT. He'll be a match-up problem on the inside with his quickness and upper body strength.

His profile picture looks like Vernon Gholston.

6'2 Missouri corner Dexter McDonald to Illinois. The kid has a tremendous upside after playing his 1st year of football last year. You don't see many 6'2 corners with legit 4.4 speed, a 39 inch vertical, and the ability to flip his hips in coverage. I love this pickup. This dude can be a really big deal in a couple of years.

Not anymore.

It's UGA/Miami/Michigan.

He eliminated FSU and FSU has stopped recruiting him completely.

UGA should land him. Michigan is the darkhorse but he does have legit interest there.

Thats more like it. It would be nice to land an "elite" back.

I think the scenario is simple, ND lays an egg this season we'll have a tough time landing or keeping recruits. We have a great year than we should be able to load up on elite recruits. Judging by the talent ND has returning this year and the schedule I believe a BCS berth is an achievable.

Some ND boards are saying that he "opened" his recruitment to attend some elite camps that he wouldn't have been invited to otherwise. Considering that's a high possibility, I'm not freaking out.

Louis Nix is supposed to be in South Bend this weekend. If he's unsure about Miami, I hope he's blown away by ND.

I know, I just think he wants to see the schools he wants to see just to also have a good idea of his safety school (for lack of a better term). Obviously I could be wrong and ND could be screwed big time but it feels just weird to pose in full ND gear on about every picture everywhere and then suddenly change your mind.

About the Hendrix commitmnt. I really like it. He isnt gonna see the field anytime soon and he has all the physical tools to work with. If Charlie is really the QB guru he is supposed to be he can make that kid REALLY good imo.

He wanted to get away from his original high school and he thought that living away from home in a boarding school would be good prep for college, also the hun is really good academically so it helps there as well.

MSU got a QB commit yesterday

That would be former BC commit Joe Boisture.

PENNSTATEHOMER
06-25-2009, 02:51 PM
It is crazy how things went from being a long shot for a #2 QB to nearly an expectation of adding a second top 10 QB commit for the '10 class. Bolden may not even have a spot at MSU after Boisture's commitment...whether you believe Bolden ever committed to MSU himself or not, it certainly never went public. Would seem MSU moved on and took Boisture since he wanted on board, which is probably better for both MSU and PSU, if Bolden eventually commits to PSU. MSU wants that meat and potato offense with a passer and a grind it out running game...Bolden is a much better fit in PSU's offense.

But I always get nervous with crap like this because Paul Jones did waiver for a minute, and even though he says he isn't afraid of comp it is much different when that competition jumps on board. I don't think his re-thinking the PSU commitment had to do with competition, I just think he was nervous and had some retards (Todd Thomas and other sPITT kids), teammate Andrew Carswell (no PSU offer) in his ear telling him he doesn't know anyone at PSU, and blah blah blah. I don't worry about any of the other PSU commits, but it will be very interesting to see how things are playing out once '10 prospects enroll early (Paul Jones), and LOIs are signed in February (Bolden).

Nope. Really wasn't necessary. I apologize to anyone that was offended by my characterization of Todd Thomas being a ******, among other Pitt football prospects/players.

Unfortunately you quoted me so I won't even bother going back to edit. Fact remains, a bunch of sPITTers were in Paul Jones ear, some of which were players/signees/prospects, and a few of the signees/prospects probably have a 15% chance of actually making it on the Pitt campus (without a miracle or post-graduate school).

The fact that his old coach is a huge USC fan and went ape **** on Martin when he verballed to ND didn't exactly hurt in the move either. Reportedly the coach wanted Chris to give USC a longer look, but he wasn't interested.

I don't know about Illinois doing well this year. They have a lot of catching up to do and have been getting beat on some guys they would normally probably win out on.

Yep. Love the Hailes commit. Could be great as an Ollie Ogbu/Anthony 'Spice' Adams type DT....don't know his true weight right now but once he drops some size and builds himself back up in college he can be a force (can probably even get much quicker and keep that power around 300-310 in college).

Some Vols and others are bad mouthing him and dissecting some of his comments, questioning whether he wants to compete and so on...he turned right around after having committed to PSU and was all in '10 PA DT Sharrif Floyd's ear, so you know he isn't afraid of competition. Probably just looking for the best place and never intended to really get that far away from home.

DaQuan offers O/DLine versatility...beastly kid that could be like Johnnie Troutman on the OLine or he could be a sweet DLineman (DT). Troutman grayshirted (out of NJ) due to injury and was shuffled between OG/OT for a few, but I expect him to start this season at LG as a RS SO. Just a massive 6'4/6'5 325 pounder that was a raw athlete with supreme athleticism...had tOSU offer along with a few others before committing to PSU.

I like him as a prospect. Under the radar a little but he's a definite D1 player. He is athletic and has some upside. He can move and he's also really strong and will only get stronger in a college weight room. I could definitely see him thriving at Iowa where his types succeed big time. If a couple of Illinois' guys fall through, I could see him getting an offer. Any other year when OL's aren't as strong, he would definitely get an early offer. He is still being evaluated for an offer right now so he could see one come fall. He could also play DT and be really good there. He's the type you guys get and have everybody scratching their heads three, four or five years later.

Warchant.com did a two-day recruiting tour in South Florida. Here's the jist of the tour. They visited Pahokee, Miami Central, St. Thomas Aquinas and Treasure Coast. Here is the jist of the tour:

Pahokee
Noel and DJ Johnson are diehard Noles. DJ Johnson is the "ring-leader" at Pahokee. He's responsible for getting Noel to commit and we are now in contention with Chris Dunkley. Florida is the team to beat, but we are in contention for him. Pahokee has a 7-on-7 in Oregon but Johnson, Dunkley, and Noel are going to try to make it to FSU's camp, which might conflict with the 7on7.

Miami Central

The guys met with the Miami Central trio of Jeffrey Godfrey, Brandon Gainer, and Joshua Reese. They said that the trio insists that they are a package deal. They all plan to enroll early, so they will obviously have to commit after their senior season. Gainer seems to be the one most ready to commit, and it could be coming a lot sooner than expected. He and Godfrey raive about Jimbo Fisher. We look good for both. We haven't been in much contact with Reese. He says he's been hearing a lot from UF, UCF, and USF. He grew up a Cane fan, but says he hasn't heard much from them lately.

St. Thomas Aquinas

They mentioned that the school looks like a small college. Great field, facilities, etc.

They interview Lamarcus Joyner. He mentioned that FSU and Ohio State are his top schools, but let slip out that FSU is his leader(not that we didn't already know that). A commitment from Joyner could be coming very soon. Very possible that it happens before the FSU camp.

Cody Riggs mentioned that FSU was his school growing up, and that his favorite player was Peter Warrick. He mentioned his top five of UF, Tennessee, UGA, FSU, and Notre Dame. Said he plans on attending UF and FSU camps this summer and won't make a commitment until after his officials.

The news on Gio Bernard was mentioned in my post earlier.

Keion Payne mentioned that Miami and FSU are really standing out. He could make his choice at any time.

Treasure Coast

Obviously, they stopped to see the recking ball known as Jeff Luc. He mentioned that his last name is pronounced "Luke," not "Luck." He said he has narrowed his list and it will be revealed before the start of his senior season. Florida and FSU are clearly the frontrunners. He will attend Friday Night Lights and the Seminole Showtime camps. He plans on enrolling early.

Are these supposed to be starters or what? Why would it matter if there are underclassmen in the two deep? You gloss over a guy like Warren at CB, obviously not an underclassmen, and very obviously a starter. Graham returns on D...that LB with the crazy ass name returns....you didn't lose any OLine, did you?

Not that it matters. UGA just picked up Malcolme and Brown is pretty damn close to pulling the trigger for them. Once he does, Clements gets forced out of that class and right into Miami's hands.

Kendall Moore is set to announce on July 11th. His top 5 are N.C. State, Duke, South Carolina, Florida State and Notre Dame. I get the feeling that he's Irish after coming from an ND camp this past weekend and being quoted as saying about his ND visit I wanted to find a little bit more about them, and now I feel like I know enough about them to make a decision.

They play the best of the best down here. Pahokee is the truth. They produce stud after stud after stud.

Hawthrone was mid level because his potential isn't great. His HS production was outstanding tho.

How good do you think Hawthorne can be? He's the backup hybrid S/LB right now. Was Smith also a low potential type of guy or is it because of his size?

To add to this, does Hawthorne have low potential because of size (as he's not that big, only listed at 6'0" 195) or is it athleticism, or what?

Suprisingly, Matt Elam and Robert Clark want to visit Virginia Tech.. We have shown no interest to date, but they want to come by and try for offers.

We have basically no shot at Elam, but getting a visit would be nice on its own. Shows that top players want to see us, maybe create some buzz. Won't hurt to try.

Robert Clark is a guy whose film looks real nice. Extremely quick, very fast. Big hitter too. Tracks the ball real well when it's in the air. Undersized, but that is it. We would be his biggest offer, and we could use another cornerback to pair with Kyle Fuller when he commits.

In other news concerning Virginia Tech. recruiting Florida, QB Mark Leal and WR James Louis will be here on the weekend of the eleventh. Good shot with Louis.

Jordan Norwood's kid brother, Levi, just got a Penn State offer and commited. Isn't sure if it's a greyshirt or not, but I think he will be a greyshirt offer down the road. If he is anything like his brother, we got a good player. Looks bigger than Jordan right now at a listed 6'2 170.

PENNSTATEHOMER
07-02-2009, 08:18 AM
It will be cool having another Norwood on the team...Jordan was a really good WR, and a smart WR. I like knowing that Levi will be at PSU, that he is 6'2, and that he had a good showing at the senior camp...caught the ball extremely well at camp. Jordan literally caught almost every pass that touched his hands/body in his 4 years as a starter at PSU so if Levi can catch, take a GS and probable RS so he can get up to 185-190, he'll likely be a solid contributor.

The biggest positive, although some are blind to it and seem to think Levi Norwood is going to scare away CA WR Kenny Stills and/or PA WR/ATH Alex Kenney, is that Levi is a WILLING grayshirt...that is likely to happen. This will have zero impact on the remaining '10 schollie situation, if things get tight and PSU needs a ship for a coveted (4/5* or not) prospect Levi will gladly GS.

Considering his athleticism, toughness, character, and production, I would be suprised if David Wilson isn't the best, or at least one of the best, back in the country in a few years.

Virginia Tech. has been on fire with runningbacks lately. Then possibly Zack Zwinak this year (FB/ RB hybrid for us) and Clifton Richardson (probable Rivals 250 athlete next year, prefers RB but could play almost any position. Check out his film).

I love it!


CANTON ?

Another hot summer day had passed Dan Newell by in Danville, Va. The George Washington High School football head coach was about 450 miles away from Fawcett Stadium.

His imagination, though, was right there with reality Wednesday night during Team USA’s second-round clobbering of Mexico. Newell coached U.S. running back David Wilson in high school. For two years, he got to watch what more than 21,000 fans have seen in two games during the Junior World Championships.

There was Wilson running past, over and around defenders. There was Wilson catching a short pass on third-and-24 and making sure he got the extra yard for the first down.

The kid might as well be a ghost in sparkling red cleats. To tackle the 5-foot-11, 192-pound running back bound for Virginia Tech after Sunday’s gold medal game is to tackle a cloud.

“Awesome,” Mexico head coach Ernesto Alfaro del Villar said. “I remember a couple of touchdowns where half our team touched him. He’s a very talented player. We knew it. ... Impossible. He’s a great player.”

Back in sultry Virginia, Newell was curious how his once-in-a-career player performed in two Team USA shellackings. Wilson has 327 yards on 23 carries and seven touchdowns in two games. That’s not a tournament. It’s the start of a career.

Informed of this, Newell paused for a few seconds, and then in a thick country drawl said, “That sounds ’bout right.”

Wednesday night, Wilson needed 16 seconds to get his team on the scoreboard. His 50-yard run on the first play from scrimmage set the tone for a 55-0 U.S. win. It set the stage for a gold medal game against No. 1 seeded Canada on Sunday.

What looks easy when games are under the lights takes the kind of hard work the other seven countries are discovering here.

“It may appear easy, but people don’t see the hard work and all the sweat off the field,” Wilson said. “There’s a lot of work that goes into it because I want to be a better player each time I step on the field.”

Before Wilson left for Canton, he squatted over 600 pounds, putting his name on another record at his school. He rushed for nearly 4,000 yards in two seasons in Virginia.

“His last regular-season game here he had 277 yards, five touchdowns and nine carries,” Newell said. “And that wasn’t even the record. He broke the record twice with over 350 yards and averaged 12 yards a carry. He’s the best athlete I’ve coached period.”

That was out of the wing-T. He’s running out of the I-formation and making people ? opponents, too ? shake their heads here.

“We’re extremely glad he’s a Hokie,” Virginia Tech Head Coach Frank Beamer said.

No kidding.

In the second quarter Wilson took a handoff and broke a tackle in the backfield. He ran through an arm tackle, bulled over a third defender about 6 yards past the line of scrimmage, ran through a scrum of Mexican defenders, and pulled away from a jersey grab for a 25-yard touchdown, his third and last of the game.

“You can’t explain it,” said USA quarterback Bryce Petty, who’s heading to Baylor. “I’ve never seen anybody like him before in my life and I’ve been around football for a while. It’s like, freakish.

“I was looking around at everybody on the field after that run and their jaws are dropped. I feel like we’re watching Maurice Jones-Drew. The talk is there. If anybody can make it ? not to talk down on anybody on the team ? David Wilson will make it. Everybody knows it.”

As special as he is on the field, Wilson is a young man of character, too. He joined the Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter that his high school coach runs. Shortly after joining, and instead of taking three college recruiting visits, he went on a mission visit to Mississippi to rebuild homes devastated from Hurricane Katrina.

He qualified to a national track meet the last two years as one of the best triple jumpers in the country. He qualified again this year. But when Chuck Kyle called and asked him to be a part of Team USA, Wilson gave up the triple jump.

“This is much bigger,” Wilson said. “Instead of competing inside your country, you get to compete for your country. I couldn’t let this opportunity pass.”

That’s because his older brother, Ronald Wilson, is in the Navy stationed on the USS Ronald Reagan in San Diego. Patriotism runs in the family.

I would’ve followed my brother to the Navy if I hadn’t been as successful in football, Wilson said. Being able to play the game you love for your country is a big deal.

Yeah, sounds ’bout right.

Yeah. We're in great position for Richardson. A very respected poster on our Rivals site said there is a good chance a top five 2011 Virginia player would commit to us soon. The top five are Dominique Terrell, Curtis Grant, Melvin Robinson, Landon Turner, and Richardson according to Virginia Preps.

We are in decent position for all of them, but more so for Grant and Richardson. When I brought up Grant, another very respected poster says we will probably get him but it will take time.

So I'm guessing Richardson. Which would be a great get.

Curtis Grant is a manimal, though.

I don't think Michigan has cooled on Dior but more that he is playing the recruiting game more than other Techies. He wants to announce late now that Miami cooled on him. I think if Michigan really wants him they can grab him. Kid has talent and I think they would make room for him in this class. He has upside at either corner or slot. Kid is a burner. I think if they get Cullen soon and possibly another CB, they may really amp it up on him to close out this class in the secondary.

My this is, is dion baily worth losing tony jefferson? Scrogg is good, but he'll be riding on the bench for years. Both guys are extreme luxaries at this point.

Both Jefferson and Bailey are luxuries at this point after last years class. Jefferson is too small to be anything other than a WLB and not good enough in coverage to be a S. Bailey is very good in coverage. Scroggins will be the no.1 QB in this class, and will help greatly getting Woods.

bump
jep i know bumping my own post is sad but i really do wanna know about this guy more
any other florida guy is also good obviously, just wanna know as much as i can, he seems really interested in ND and the first things iver heard makes it sound like he is a SICK prospect

Not the best LB in Florida next year but a high caliber prospect nonetheless.

Denzel Perryman is the truth at LB in the state next year. Followed closely by Karlos Williams and Arrington Jenkins.

Wayne Lyons is in the next grouping after those elite guys and is gonna be a top 250 guy assuming Rivals gets their act together on the state rankings for FL (they are brutal this year).

Lyons is very athletic and has a nose for the ball, plus he's productive to boot. He is on the smallish side but alot of people are in love with his raw tools. He's gonna be very highly recruited and plays at a powerhouse program that has produced tons of D-1 talent over the years.

It's extremely early but rumors are he's very much open. Seeing as Perryman and Arrington are huge Cane leans and Karlos Williams seems destined to go to FSU with his brother, Lyons is a pretty good bet to be the most highly recruited LB in state because he literally could head anywhere. He is wide open from what I understand.

Kid is gonna be a heck of a pickup for someone.

Bailey was always going where Scroggins was. Notre Dame didnt have a chance there, although they are the clear leader for Parker.

I'll take that, dont agree with either tbh (think you'll get parker cuz of byron moore) but i would be more than happy if it turns out that way.

My first version of the ND mock class:
QB Andrew Hendrix 4/3* Tommy Rees 3*
RB Jordon James 4* Cameron Roberson 4*
WR Bennett Jackson 3/4* Daniel Smith 3/4* Justin McCay 4/5*
TE Alex Welch 4*
OT Christian Lombard 3/4* Matt James 4* James Stone 4*
DE Chris Martin 5* Blake Lueders 4*
DT Beau Allen 3/4* Bruce Gaston nr/3*
LB Kendall Moore 4/3* Prince Shembo nr/3*
CB Lo Wood 3* Spencer Boyd 3* Joshua Shaw 3/4*
S Sean Parker 4/5* Chris Badger 3* Dietrich Riley 4*
Ath Anthony Barr 4*

Total 24 recruits
I think we will get one more OLineman but I dont see one of our current offers as a certain enough thing to include as well. My pick of guy still to get offered is Ian Gray Jr, project guy out of texas (but son of former nd player)
Guys with 5* possibilities imo

OT - Andrew Donnal, Brandon Scherff

Bolden info might not be good, I just heard it was. He's going to be on campus soon. Pretty sure Marlandez Harris would spurn Indiana for Iowa or Illinois if an offer comes late as well.

I would consider that the best class in Ferentz' tenure, without a doubt.

Dakota Royer has commited to a school, but won't make it public because he wants to do it as a press conference at his school in the next couple of weeks. I think he is a Lion.

I dont really know what to say to that. This kind of injuries linger for a while and I hope he doesnt miss his senior year.

Justin Utupo, 3* DE from Cali, just committed to ND. I don't think he's been to campus yet, so this is kinda out of the blue. I'm looking for a link, but he's listed under ND's commits on Rivals.

Here's a youtube highlight video of the kid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45CQhAF40LY

I still think Bolden is a Lion, especially after this PJ update.

I can't imagine Royer will be anything but blue & white. Seems to be good friends (latest Farrell article stated this, and I've seen it many times before) with PSU WR Graham Zug, same school as Dakota - Manheim Central. Royer said he was trying to visit Zug recently but he was at the US Open...went on to say that visit may happen this week. I'd imagine that could be a good time to commit when he gets up to PSU and hangs out with Zug.

As for Bolden...I'm not expecting PSU, but at the same time, how can it not be PSU? HAH. I guess it could be Oregon even though he never visited either Oregon or Louisville...Oregon seems flashy, flashy/jazzy uniforms, top notch facilities, offense, conference (Pac-10)...
