well with bama not 30 im sure about that cause then they would've hit that 85 schollie wall by know, the adjusted rankings are published but receive almost no attention. ND won all the adjusted rankings last year since they almost never lose anyone.

Until their sophmore season when they leave the school for "personal reasons" aka Weis being a douche.

Florida guys;

Any thoughts on Casey Turner RB and Calvin Smith DT? We are sitting well with both from what I understand.

Don't know much about Casey Turner but I thought I remember hearing that Calvin Smith's dad helped pushed Liuget to Illinois and Smith will follow. He is about 6'3'' 250 and will play DT in college. Claims to have a Miami offer too. Most think his teammate Corey Lemonier is the better prospect though.

His Step-Dad is the one that pushed Luiget to Illinois.

But Calvin Smith's momma wants him at Miami close to home.

When push comes to shove, who do you think is winning that battle?

Moot point tho. As I've already stated that we have 2 top 50 players that already play Smith's position and our staffs not likely to take him due to a numbers crunch at that spot.

I have heard he can play some OG tho. Not sure if our staff is willing to give him a look there.

I expect him at Illinois.

I have heard he looks pretty bad on the O-line so yea..congratulations Illinois on getting a damn fine looking DT prospect.

That is going to be a recurring theme this year BTW, teams across the country are going to be getting some outstanding prospects from South Florida due to the high number of D-1 recruits here this year and the number crunches by the big three.

Hell, I could see a team like FIU sneaking into the top 50 recruiting classes, which I gotta think is pretty unheard of for a Sun Belt school.

Well we had Justin Boren who transfered, the Michigan fans reasoning of course was that he was fat and wasn't man enough to handle Barwis's work out routine.

We had Sam McGuffie transfer, of course Michigan fans spined it as it not really being a loss. Even though last year they swore up and down that he would hurdle over all the competition on route to a 2,000+ yard season and a Heisman trophy. But now that he transfered he was to small for the rugged Big10 schedule and most likely not man enough for Barwis's work outs either.

Zion Babb, Patilla, Kates, Artis Chambers, Mixon, Mallet, James McKinney, Alex Mitchell, ect. All gone, apparently none man enough to handle Barwis's work outs.

And you have information to the contrary? I find it hard to believe that some Notre Dame homer knows more about the Michigan program than insiders with connections to the program. Andy Moeller wasn't there to coddle Boren and Rod and his staff "pushed" him too hard and swore a few too many times. Rod and his staff don't baby their players like Lloyd and his staff did. Most of the guys had a real hard time adjusting between the two regimes. Boren couldn't take it anymore and had to go home crying to daddy. Sorry, but if Boren wants to be pampered like a princess then he'll fit right in at Ohio State.

We had Sam McGuffie transfer, of course Michigan fans spined it as it not really being a loss. Even though last year they swore up and down that he would hurdle over all the competition on route to a 2,000+ yard season and a Heisman trophy. But now that he transfered he was to small for the rugged Big10 schedule and most likely not man enough for Barwis's work outs either.McGuffie transfered back close to home to be close to his 16 year old brother, who he was trying to help raise. He had nothing but great things to say about Michigan when he left and said it was hard for him to leave the program. But yeah, let's not let facts get in the way of our personal agenda.

Zion Babb,Babb was kicked off the team for violating team rules.

Patilla,He left because the new staff didn't baby him, like Boren. The difference between him and Boren is that he pretty admitted why he left. He was moved to fullback and got pissed.

Kates,This was a grades issue. Rod can't do these kids homework or take their test. He didn't leave because he didn't like Rod, he left because he did have the grades to legally play.

Chambers, MixonNo one really knows why they left.

Mallet,There were rumors that Mallet considered transfering before the spring of his freshman year. This is before Rich Rod got to Michigan while Lloyd was still coach. When Rod got there he asked Mallett to stay and told him he'd build his offense around him. Well Mallett left anyway...

James McKinney,He left before Lloyd's last season, but keep pulling names out of your ass.

Alex Mitchell,This is the one guy who really was fat and couldn't handle Barwis' workouts. He got up to 360 lbs and told the new staff their workouts were "too hard."

Mallett was loathed by coaches and teammates. The guy almost transferred the second he stepped on campus because he was homesick.

Something about Paul Jones and the Penn. State coaches misleading him.

Said he called VT coaches soon after Paul Jones committed.

Just what I read.

I thought both his mother and father wanted him elsewhere...I recall his father being pretty involved throughout his recruitment and while it seemed that he liked MM, and PSU, he came off as someone that was shopping his son wherever he could develop into an NFL QB.

You know Newsome will remain a QB at PSU, the only thing I could think of that he could have been misled about was PSU's chances with Paul Jones. Hell, it was pretty much as close to a lock as you can get with PJ, regardless of what Bob L. or anyone else says.

Maybe the PSU coaches played Newsome a bit and made it seem like the prospects of other QBs coming in weren't very good, I'd have no problem with that and if that were a reason for being unsettled Kevin Newsome shouldn't concern himself with it.

Unless he sees himself as a big-time project, he should show some confidence and bust his a$$ as the #2, he will see the field in '09 (a lot) and is damn near a lock to start as a true sophomore - can't get any better then that. I think he has a really good relationship with MM, Daryll Clark and incoming OT recruit Eric Shrive - hopefully they'll reel him in.

Here is what I think on Henderson.

Notre Dame is not in as good as shape as their fans seem to think they are. Henderson seems enamored with USC and I think that if they really want him, ultimately they are going to get him.

Tim Brewster is going to put up one hell of a fight and I would not be shocked at all to see him stay home. Henderson has told media that he likes the idea of being the cornerstone recruit for a program much like Arrelious Benn was for Illinois, Derrick Williams at the resurgence of Penn State, and other players of that nature. He's also been spotted wearing Gopher gear a ton and the new coach at Cretin (Scanlan) is much more into the Gophers than Bischoff ever was.

Ultimately I think it comes down to Minnesota, USC, and Notre Dame. With USC as my prediction as of now. But so many things can happen from now and then this is really just a crappy estimate.

Looks like Rodriguez and Michigan are trying the Zook strategy this year; offering lots of Ohio kids early on. Just the past week they've offered LaTwan Anderson, Jerald Robinson, and Antonio Kinard (not to mention other early offers like Darryl Baldwin, Derrick Bryant, etc.). Lane Kiffin looks like he's trying a similar strategy to get into Glenville, he offered DB Christian Bryant, not sure if he's gonna have any luck there but it's worth a try. I'm not sure about Kinard, but I think Ohio State will offer Anderson, Bryant, and maybe Robinson.

I don't really think it's a "Zook strategy". From what I hear, Ohio is absolutely loaded for '10 prospects. The state of Michigan only has a couple elite players every year so of course he's going to have to dip into Ohio. I think UM signed 7 Ohioans last year.

How good is that Kinard kid? I think he's from the same HS as Isaiah Bell and Fitz Toussaint.

Penn State is also thinking about offering him. What position does he project at in college since they have him listed at 6'4 200 pounds. I saw some film, but didn't pat attention enough to actually come away with anything from it. Care to tell me a little bit about him?

Kinard's a good fit as a pass rushing OLB, but he's rather raw and very athletic. I don't know that much about him yet, he really popped on the radar just less than a month ago. Looks like Michigan is trying to get a good inroads to Liberty HS. Most of these guys like Robinson, Anderson, Bryant, and Kinard Ohio State won't decide on offering or not until spring, and then the chances of them landing with certain teams will become more clear. Jerald Robinson and Christian Bryant and probably LaTwan Anderson I think Ohio State offers, we might be more picky at linebacker since we already have 2 pretty much in the bag for 2010 in McVey and Turner.

yeah, he's big on OSU ("If Ohio State would offer me a scholarship I would take it that day, no doubt about it. I wouldn't need to wait around for anything else, or take any time to think about it.") , but he won't find out if we're gonna offer him until sometime between spring and summer camp. I think we will, but if we don't Michigan has a great shot.

Yea you may be right and he probably will be a 4 star because of that, but man you can't teach that kind of speed, agility and size. My favorite thing though is the 'motor' on him. Usually the phrase motor is reserved for the slightly under athletic (my made up term) white guy who goes non stop; you'll rarely see it applied to freak athletes like Lemmonier, but based on that clip this guy has a non stop motor.

----------

PSU already has two commits for 2010, so I'd think we're only going to have 14-15...we'll have to be pretty damn selective.

Players Ithink we have a great shot at:

-PA OT Seth Betancourt (6'6 285) - think he could commit fairly early - verbally offered

-PA OG Luke Graham (6'5 265) - PSU fan - no offer

-PA DE/OLB Dakota Royer (6'3 225) - PSU fan - verbally offer

-PA WR Andrew Carswell (6'4 200) - not sure we offer, teammates with QB PJ - no offer

-PA TE-DE-DT Kyle Baublitz (6'4 260) - not sure he'll get an early written offer - verbally offered

-NY OG Daquan Jones (6'4 305) - coach telling him look hard at PSU, likes PSU - no offer

-NY DE Dominique Easley (6'3 255) - PSU got in on him fairly early...we'll see - no offer

-CT RB Silas Redd (5'11 190) - PSU fan, visiting March 27th-29th - verbally offered

-MD WR Adrian Coxson (6'2 185) - visiting March 7th, former PSU WR/1st round WR Bryant Johnson told him to send his film to the PSU coaches - verbally offered

-DE CB C.J./William Jones (5'11 165) - pretty high on BC's campus/education, close friends with '09 DE PSU WR commit Justin Brown, combined with our recruiting in DE, I think we can get him if we want him.

Little less confident:
-CT LB Khairi Fortt (6'2 220) - will have any offer he wants, ND just offered - verbally offered

-OH ATH Ray Vinopal (5'11 180) - ties to tOSU and Oklahoma, I think - no offer

-OH ATH Andre Givens (6'2 185), early top 5...probably subject to change - no offer

-OH ATH-CB Braylon Heard (5'11 170) - our guy thinks something doesn't add up here - claims PSU verbal offer

-OH ATH Alex Zordich (6'3 190) - PSU legacy...not sure we offer with limited #s

-PA ATH Anthony Gonzalez (6'3 195) - QB-ATH as #2 QB/S recruit probably - verbally offered

-PA ATH Alex Kenney (6' 190) - on campus Friday (2/6) for unofficial - verbally offered

-PA ATH Chad Hagan (6'1 215) - doubt we offer, Hull's teammate - no offer

-PA DT Shariff Floyd - tough pull....we'll see - no offer...staff has been on him

-PA ATH Brandon Ifill (6'1 185) - WR/DB...recruiting as WR/prefers DB - verbally offered

-PA CB Colton Charles - Central Dauphin...high on Oklahoma...we could offer - no offer

-MD OT Robbie Havenstein (6'7 310) - visited PSU for multiple games...prolly get Betancourt - ?

I personally think we're going to get (85% sure) these kids early on if all goes well - OT Seth Betancourt, OG Luke Graham (if/when we offer), DE/OLB Dakota Royer, RB Silas Redd, WR Adrian Coxson...those 5 in addition to the 2 we already have would probably secure a top 10 class unless we fall apart.

I'd put it even higher for Royer, Graham & Redd...those 3 will happen sooner or later (IMO). I think there are some domino's that can fall fairly early for us, and we'll see shortly (month or two). Sorry for SUCH A LONG POST, but I spaced each name so anyone that wanted to read my thoughts would be able to do so. :)

Here is what I think on Henderson.

Notre Dame is not in as good as shape as their fans seem to think they are. Henderson seems enamored with USC and I think that if they really want him, ultimately they are going to get him.

Tim Brewster is going to put up one hell of a fight and I would not be shocked at all to see him stay home. Henderson has told media that he likes the idea of being the cornerstone recruit for a program much like Arrelious Benn was for Illinois, Derrick Williams at the resurgence of Penn State, and other players of that nature. He's also been spotted wearing Gopher gear a ton and the new coach at Cretin (Scanlan) is much more into the Gophers than Bischoff ever was.

Ultimately I think it comes down to Minnesota, USC, and Notre Dame. With USC as my prediction as of now. But so many things can happen from now and then this is really just a crappy estimate.


As a USC fan I haven't heard anything about that, but I like it. I personally think he'll stay home and be a gopher, but pete will be in the minny area (this year and next recruiting), and If the talent is good I could see him doing package deals (or anything he can to get the best in that state).

Check out this video of Corey Lemmonier, DE Hialeah.

If that's not a 5 star DE, I don't know what is...

And if you want to get more technical, Alabama has yet to even win a bowl game with these recruiting championships. He can enjoy Bama's last year of SEC West dominance, if they even have that with Ole Miss playing the way the have. After a year or two, LSU will be right back on top. I see Shepard becoming an electric player, but more as a versatile WR. Him and Randle will be a sick combo for you guys any way you slice it.

He has alot of family ties at USC (obviously) and his brother plays at A&M, but he's said things like "My goal is to make a name for myself and try to be the best I can from what Ive been blessed with. which makes me believe (atleast right now) that he doesn't want to be a "Legacy", and go somewhere else (probably UT,OU,STAN,UO,etc...).

Don't know where you heard that.

Everything I've read has said that he has LSU and Texas at the top, USC in the middle, and everyone else at the bottom.

It's a two horse race and we recruit that area very well. He should be the only RB we offer this year. That may or may not give us an advantage, but it certainly means we will throw everything we have at him.

He was supposed to go to a LSU junior day previously but I have read that he didn't show up. He came in to our junior day a day early so he could have some one-on-one time with Mack Brown so I like how we are playing it so far. We will probably offer him tomorrow.

We have a lot of potential Rivals100 players, though.

Phillip Sims, QB
Nick Acree, DT
Mark Shuman, OT

Then players like Evan Hailes (DT), Travis Williams (LB/ S), Brian Laiti (LB), and more who will be top 250 with a chance to sneak in the 100.

My point was that just because USC wants someone is no guarantee that they will get them. The dude I quoted originally made it sound like that kids just verbal to USC the second Carroll offers them, and that Henderson will do the same just because Carroll wants him to play at USC.

I will agree...Pete does get an abnormal amount of the kids he goes after. Probably why when he whiffs on kids he wants, its big news.

As far as Te'o goes, I think there were signs that he wasn't the lock that some USC fans were calling him. He made some quotes about "rowing his own canoe" and how biggest recruiting event he remembered was the students at ND wearing leis during his visit, even though the NCAA warned them not to.

(IMHO) He'd be stupid not to come to USC, Like I said earlier, he's royalty. As for Ambles, I really don't care (I watched some highlights, and I don't understand what makes him the no.1 WR or a Elite WR). Pete offered him, so he must be legit, but I'd be ok if we don't get him (which is the most likely scenario) and get Robert Woods instead. We don't really need a wide-out in this class, but Matthews (besides being a legacy) would be wanted and needed since he projects to more than one position on the line.

He actually likes FSU a lot (says they are his dream school) though most seem to think if we did put the full press on him he would be a Cane. He had a somewhat disappointing Jr. season after looking like the next sure thing 5 star RB as a sophomore.

Yeah, that's why i was asking. What happened his junior year, did he lose some O-line talent, or did he just fall into a slump. When I watched him in that game I thought he was going to be a better prospect than Brandon harris, he just seemed like the best player on the field.

Plus ND threw in a package deal (USC was never going to offer any of his friends), and Manti probably felt that Charlie would handle his "mission" better.

I doubt the friend package was the biggest draw here. Sure, ND got and offered Manti's friend Roby Toma, but the need was there after Nyshier Oliver recommitted to Tennessee and Damien Thigpen went to UCLA. Plus once you factor in a 2 year mission, Toma will have 2 years of eligibility left max, while Te'o will have 3 years.

"He has always been one who wanted to paddle his own canoe," Brian Te'o said. "He wants to be on his own and face challenges that wouldn't come his way at BYU. He liked his trip to BYU, it is just that it just seemed too comfortable. That's what he told us."

If BYU was too comfortable, then USC would be similar in level of comfort with all of the Polynesian players there.

The mission...well, Te'o has a better chance of leaving ND and coming back 2 years later and not being buried on the depth chart. He won't return #1 at any position, but definitely in striking distance to start.

As far as #1 goes...Henderson hands down.

Well seeing as Brandon Harris is a CB and Clements is a RB I don't really see how you can compare them as prospects. Very hard to judge HS CBs because there's no incentive for other coaches to throw at them. The CB on the other side usually isnt up to par. As pure athletes Harris is better. Not even really that close.

But to answer your question, BTWs OL this year was actually better then during his Sophmore year. They didn't really have anyone that year. This year they had some kids that will get some D1 offers and the OL really came around big time when Jose Jose started playing center.

Clements just didn't play very well this year.

And what game did you see of him as a Sophomore? He absolutely went off during the State title game and was a monster but that was an anomaly. Not really indicative of how he really is. Seeing as the game was on ESPN, I'm guessing that might have been the one you saw.

He's a good prospect. 4 star for sure and could crack the low 250 rankings.

I doubt the friend package was the biggest draw here. Sure, ND got and offered Manti's friend Roby Toma, but the need was there after Nyshier Oliver recommitted to Tennessee and Damien Thigpen went to UCLA. Plus once you factor in a 2 year mission, Toma will have 2 years of eligibility left max, while Te'o will have 3 years.

"He has always been one who wanted to paddle his own canoe," Brian Te'o said. "He wants to be on his own and face challenges that wouldn't come his way at BYU. He liked his trip to BYU, it is just that it just seemed too comfortable. That's what he told us."

If BYU was too comfortable, then USC would be similar in level of comfort with all of the Polynesian players there.

The mission...well, Te'o has a better chance of leaving ND and coming back 2 years later and not being buried on the depth chart. He won't return #1 at any position, but definitely in striking distance to start.

As far as #1 goes...Henderson hands down.
SC fans felt good about Teo because he was all SC, up until the morning of LOI. A month earlier he committed to SC, and was even trying to recruit R Carroll over to SC. The night before LOI Teo spoke with the SC coaches and was still all USC. Then Brian Teo got involved, and we know what happened there....

Well seeing as Brandon Harris is a CB and Clements is a RB I don't really see how you can compare them as prospects. Very hard to judge HS CBs because there's no incentive for other coaches to throw at them. The CB on the other side usually isnt up to par. As pure athletes Harris is better. Not even really that close.

He's good, he has great routes and is always open and makes the catch, but his speed is just average (4.55). Gonna be another Robiskie type, but less ?s about seperation at this point. Probably a low 4 star, he was in the preseason rivals 250 to watch for 2010.


I just saw that Purdue's recruiting class has 18 kids...FOURTEEN of the 18 are from Florida. 2 from Georgia, 1 from New York, and 1 from Texas. 17/18 from the south. Zero from Indiana. 1 JUCO from Illinois. That's wild.

Personally I think it's still gonna be a really tough battle with Florida State, they are still the team to beat in my book. The only way we ever get kids that good from Miami that Miami wants is if they aren't really really big on Miami like Sabino and Joyner.

here is what orangebloods.com had to say about Washington after this weekend

The aftermath:</I> Washington's arrival on the 40 Acres was a surprise to the staff, but you have to give the DeSoto lineman credit for taking matters into his own hands and doing everything that he could to persuade the staff that he should receive an offer. Mack Brown wants players that want to be Longhorns and even though he wasn't offered this weekend, there's a good chance that Washington will eventually receive an offer.

I've heard that Michigan has really toned down our recruitment of Robinson. I'm not sure what exactly this means. He was considered a near Michigan lock around this time last year. Maybe were just letting Ricardo Miller handle his recruitment.

I also thought that Robinson was higher on UNC than Florida, he has a thing for Butch Davis.

I wouldn't mind taking Godfrey just to have him be one of those "player recruiter" QBs that call and develop relationships with other prospects, especially the guys in South Florida. Seems like a really cool guy and obviously a huge Miami fan. So if we take him, I hope he comes early and starts with that right away.

Sidenote: That was what Bryce Brown was doing for us about a month or two following his commitment to us, all we heard was how he was developing relationships with all these national, five star recruits (Xavier Nixon and Kennard being the two names I remember off the top of my head) and he was going to personally talk them into coming to Miami.

Height is the only issue. But its usually a big one for QBs.

At the end of the day, he too good for us to pass just cause of height. He should get his Cane offer and be here sooner rather then later.

Good news is 5'11" QBs can be really good in college moreso than in the NFL. Chase Daniel, Chris Leak, Jeff Garcia were all 5'11"; Troy Smith was 6'0".

I think he can suceed and I think Miami will eventually offer and land him. We can afford to wait a little while him because he would come here no matter what. Unlikely some of the OOS kids and north Florida that we have to get on early to have a chance.

We have yet to put out very many offers to local kids so you know they are all coming soon or later. Maybe at our spring game

BTW...What else did Greene have to say?

mostly he just drooled over the athletes there and how every kid there runs 4.4 or better. He mentioned hanging out with Joyner and his uncle a lot too, says Ohio State is in "great shape" with him and all that stuff about Joyner that's come out in articles the past day and a half. He thinks Joyner might be a better athlete than Ted Ginn, which is saying something. He maintians that if Godfrey was 6'2" then he'd be the #1 Qb in the country.

Maryland WR Adrian Coxson had some nice things to say about Penn State in his recent interview with Scout. With him being a really close friend to Bryant Johnson, former Penn State wideout, I have no doubt in my mind that he will be a Nittany Lion. Lets just hope he isn't afraid of competition.

I've said it before in the Miami thread and elsewhere but LaMarcus Joyner (I realize how hyperbolic this statement is, btw, don't worry) is the best HS football player to come out of Florida since Willie Williams.

I start drooling every time someone just mentions his name.

I think Joyner is a little overrated to be honest.

People are in love with his aggresivness towards the run and his nasty streak.

Thats all well and good but people dont realize, he plays LB for Southwest. Its alot easier and more valuable to look good against the run at LB then CB. He blitzes alot and does very little coverage for them.

Hes listed at 5'8 which is a huge detriment as well.

Hes a good prospect and will be as asset anywhere but he has alot of questions he needs to answer as well. I dont see the number player in the state talk, right now thats likely Elam and by the end of the year it will be Chandler. People sleep on him because of the injury but before that he was considered a better prospect then Marcus Forston.

Not a lot of premier HS athletes will play strictly corner, for the reasons already mentioned by even you in this thread. You want your best player right in the middle of the field where the action is and causing the most disruption possible. Premier corners will not get thrown to, so they pretty much neutralize themselves.

Judging by how cat quick he is, the premier speed and he also appears to have freakishly long arms I really don't worry about his ability to play corner or safety as needed. Size matters yes, but the guy is just a straight up football player and maybe I am overestimating him because of the aggresion and nasty streak, but those are my two favorite traits and to see them on a guy that quick is just so rare.

Also remember that Chandler is only 5'11" so if you think people are going to hold that up against a DB you have to apply the same logic to a DT. Chandler is nasty though, looked better than Forston a lot of times during his Sophomore year.

I'll tell you one thing - if he does transfer to Columbus I will definitely be seeing him and Gore in person. That will be a show!

Chandler 5'11"? Hes listed at 6'0 and Ive heard hes closer to 6'1.

Normally in HS you want ur best players in the middle of the field yes. But not in 6A South Florida Football. The real CBs play corner ala Michael Carter, Patrick Johnson, Brandon McGee, Brandon Harris, Janoris Jenkins, so on and so forth. The fact that Joyner is playing LB makes me wonder. Especially since its easier to find HS LBs then good cover CBs.

As for where Joyner is leaning. He has already named UF, FSU and OSU his leader at different points in his recruitment and then changed his tune. So basically hes gonna be one of those headcases to follow. General concensus is FSU tho because he grew up an FSU fan.

RichRod has ohio offer fever (aka zook-itis). Offered West Chester TE Alex Smith. He's a better tight end prospect than Kevin Koger was IMO which is saying something. He favors Cincinnati and Kentucky right now b/c of family ties to those two schools/areas, I think if/when Ohio State offers him that will be hard to turn down. OSU doesn't use the tight end much, but they are gonna sell the flex TE position to him that Jake Stoneburner is gonna play this year that is basically what Dallas Clark and Travis Beckum play and it'll be new to our offense. LaTwan Anderson and Alex Smith I think might be the next two Ohio guys to get offered...maybe Christian Bryant too.

I'm not just saying this because I'm a UM fan, but if I were a pass-catching TE recruit, I'd make damn sure OSU actually throws the ball to the tight end before even considering an offer there. Kevin Koger had more catches as a true freshman in the cluster**** known as Michigan's offense than Jake Ballard, OSU's starting TE, did. That's pretty awful.

With Chandler you're right that he is listed at 6' but I have heard the opposite about his height (I.E. he is 5'11"). Who knows? Either way both are going to be undersized height wise at there prospective positions, but they shown that it does not impact how they play.

Also, yes it is South Florida but you are not taking into account how bad Southwest Miami HS has historically been at football. They won more games this year (8) and last year (6) than they did in the three seasons of 04-07 combined (5). That is how big of impact Joyner (along with Hosey Williams to a lesser extent) has made.

I doubt he plays the same role at Columbus.

Coaches want '10 CT LB Khairi Fortt to come for one-on-one during spring practices, and he said he was looking forward to talking with the players and meeting everyone. Fortt and another CT kid, '10 RB Silas Redd, are visiting UVA this upcoming weekend....Fortt was at Maryland's this past weekend. He'll also be at PSU Nike camp, which I believe is May 2nd but it could be June 2nd (can't remember). He is going to take all 5 officials and hopes to announce at the US Army AA game, so I doubt there will be any decision from him for a long time.

'10 CT RB Silas Redd is still visiting March 27-29th, think he may commit. I'd say Redd, Royer, Betancourt are probable early on. Coxson could be another by May/June.

Two, three, or possibly even 4 OH kids will probably be visiting in the next month or two. Nobody real big-time, at least not on these forums. Probably just the Mooney kids even though we've been recruiting quite a few other OH prospects this year.

Things couldn't possibly be looking any better for '10 MD WR Adrian Coxson. Still visiting March 7th, scout has an article up now and rivals has his film up.

I'm not sure what to think about PA DT Sharrif Floyd, says PSU is recruiting him, coaches have been by the school and I quote, 'I'm cool with Penn State, I like them a little bit'...we haven't offered and I can't understand why - big time DL prospect.

OSU's tight ends are pretty much considered the "3rd OT" or the "6th OL" and their role is to block and run certain routes. Jake Stoneburner is gonna be in the slot a lot and sometimes on the end, but he's basically gonna be doing closer to what Anthony Gonzalez did rather than what Rory Nicol and Jake Ballard do. Alex Smith's position is gonna be officially tight end, but essentially WR. Stoneburner and Smith aren't really blockers if you watch them, it's not like Dion Sims or Shede Hageman who were actually gonna be tight ends who block and catch. I can see why they were scared away, but Stoney and Smith were/are WRs in high school and they'll be essentially that at Ohio State.

Kevin Koger had more catches as a true freshman in the cluster**** known as Michigan's offense than Jake Ballard, OSU's starting TE, did. That's pretty awful.

well Ballard was the 2nd TE to all big ten tight end Rory Nicol, and like I said their primary role was to block.

He looks like he'd be an awesome DT (IMHO). At 6'4 he'd be able to be an athletic 300 pounder, and he looks very strong and physical. At DE he looks like he could compete immediately, and strong against the run and in traffic. What about his Teammate (the runningback, forgot his name), is he intrested in the Noles aswell?

I don't think Rich Rod got Ohio fever, he's just a great recruiter. He knows the best athletes are in Florida and Ohio is in the top five. He doesn't really have a chance in Texas or Florida, so he's focusing on the areas he can recruit. He proved he can recruit Florida to a certain extent and proved he can recruit Ohio, by grabbing the state's best player this past class.

It doesn't take a moron to figure out that Ohio has better high school football players than Michigan. The reason the offers are coming quicker this year is due to time issues. Last year he was worried about keeping the 2008 class together. Once that was accomplished, him and all of his staff took their vacations and got a late start on 2009. Expect U-M to grab a lot of Ohio and Florida kids. Even if Ohio State and the big three in Florida get first dibs in their states, there are plenty of kids who go under the radar because the states are loaded with talent.

All I know of AJ Derby is that he's grown up in Iowa City, is a Hawkeye fan but not so much that an offer from the big boys wouldn't tear him away. Last season was his first year at QB, pretty much was a Tebow-like athlete. He is said to be very raw at QB, but still has potential to play there in college. Rumor that at the AAA camp for juniors or whatever, he had one of if not the strongest arm. Also, his HS Iowa City High plays in the top Iowa level of competition, not that it's saying a lot. I've heard him mentioned as a QB, S, LB, and TE, never heard WR though.

Yea, the Tebow comparison is obviously there but should be taken with a grain of salt. They are similar in build, speed (Derby runs a 4.6 reported, idk about Tebow in HS), Derby punishes the D by running all over them, but can also throw. But like I said, his passing game is far from polished, he just has a really huge arm. I don't remember what Tebow was like coming out, but I'm pretty sure Derby won't be as big a prospect obviously. That said, I've read many scouts/analysts/etc. feel with more experience his senior year and some work at the next level, he definitely could play QB at the next level.

I really hope he isn't star struck by all the big boys and stays home, but I have a feeling he's going big time.

You can still root for us. ;) That is, until we finally make a Rose Bowl to play USC. Weird, the year we faced USC, it was a BCS bowl outside the Rose.

But Derby is the keystone for Iowa's '10 class, along with Andre Dawson. Hopefully, the fact we've been in on him earlier than anyone else, he goes to school literally 2 blocks from the football stadium, and he will have the opportunity to play any position he wants will persuade him to stay.

My sister was never really involved in my life like my brothers, until the last ten years, and SC is one of the home town schools (UCLA being the other) so it just seemed natural. It's funny because at one time I used to root for three losers (loser is too strong a word for the 90's trojans, but UCLA was king of LA at the time, and people that rooted for the trojans were looked at as losers, just like how UCLA fans are looked at now:p ).

Sorry for the triple post, but U-M also offered Jordan Hicks. That one looks like a losing effort though...

Texas if they'll take him, if not Florida. He's going south.

I still cant get over how Mia hasnt offered LB Jeff Luc. His interest in Miami is high and I cant stop watching his highlights. Their absolutely ridiculous. We need to sign some LB's next year and it sure doesnt look like were going after many.

Also Chris Dunkley's interest in Miami has risen. He says he really likes Miami since they just offered and he wants to sign with a dual threat quarterback. Talks about how much he like Jeffery Goddfrey.

North Canton RB Erick Howard (who was Ohio Mr. Football as a junior - first junior to win that award I can remember) got an offer from Tennessee to go with Akron, Cincinnati, Colorado, and one or two others. Good news from his grades standpoint, though none of those schools have academic standards for athletes that Ohio State does, so I still think he has work to do. I think he eventually gets offered by Ohio State and we sign him, which makes me excited b/c he's my favorite Ohio prospect for 2010.

Even more then Turner? What are your plans for him? Have him bulk up and put his hand on the ground, or play him at WLB and have him rush the passer, ect?

Turner is quite the one-trick pony. He's probably better off at SLB.

I personally think he is the best running back in the 2010 class. He has the total package when it comes to running backs. He isn't on the same level as Bryce Brown or Trent Richardson, though.

Besides for being heavy and physical, he doesn't wow me.

I said Howard was my favorite 2010 OH prospect, not the best. Norwell and James I think are better prospects. Turner is very intriguing, he's a lot like Aaron Maybin or Thaddeus Gibson, he is an elite pass rusher and is so athletic that he'll see time at OLB and DE, and some schools are recruiting him as a safety even. Pretty telling about how athletic you are when you are being recruited as a DE, LB, and S by different schools. Reminds me of the many DEs in the past who came to college as a WR and ended up as a pass rusher.

Turner is gonna come to Ohio State as a linebacker, and if he gets big enough he will be the LEO defensive end like Gibson, Gholston, Carpenter (as a senior), and Will Smith.

I remember Jevon Kearse, the safety!

+1. Jevon Kearse the safety = Ray Ray Armstrong the safety. I think that is the most apt comparison I have heard on Ray Ray yet; I think they will have similar career paths.

Interested in FSU, Clemson, UNC, Bama, and USCeast. If signing day was today he would be a Gamecock.

Florida offered Adrian White Jr. and his weird ass haircut today, apparently his dad was a Gator.

Any Texas guys know anything about him/where he's leaning?

Where's that from?

Our guy talked to him, no article. It'll be interesting to see whether or not we can get him, we'll definitely be losing 6'5 310 senior DT Jared Odrick after '09, and if he continues to progress he may very well be a 1st or 2nd rounder.

We also have 2 RS JR DTs in 6'3 320 Abe Koroma & 6'1 295 Ollie Ogbu, either of them could potentially leave if they have a stand-out year next to Odrick....I'd lean more towards Ogbu because of his burst. Odrick is one of the more important players on the entire D, so PT shouldn't be much of an issue for Floyd.

-------

'10 CT RB/DB Silas Redd once again said if PSU feels like home on his unofficial visit he'll commit on the spot. Says he has been a PSU fan since he was 7 years old...I'm hoping for a commit after his March 27-29th visit. And I'm also hoping we put/keep him at RB rather then DB.

A question for a guy into cali recruiting consernin sean parker. I've basicly heard two main stories about his recruitement.
- he wants to go out of cali
- he wants to go where byron moore goes (remarks pre-dates Byrons usc recommitment)
Since things can't work out in a way that both things will happen what is the bigger factor here?
