His Dad seemingly wants nothing to do with Minnesota. He's the one that is pushing Notre Dame and USC because he wants to be the son of a superstar and bask in his glory. Seantrel is much harder to read, but he's a pretty reserved and shy kid.

He was high on our list at Mizzou. We really thought we had a great shot at him here. He seemed to be a very underrated prospect. I hope he still visits us but I imagine it's probably over. Nice pickup for the Huskers.

Have you heard anything recently on Gabbert recently? There are a lot of rumblings down here that it's just a matter of time until he commits to Mizzou. Nothing real concrete though, didn't know if you are hearing anything different.

Carter was pretty much just building drama in his recruitment for the last few months. Carter and his father both post over on HI pretty regularly. Coach Papuchis was on Carter and built a great relationship with him for nearly a year. Coach P is probably the only legit recruiter we have. Dude is a beast on the trail.

As far as Gabbert, who the heck knows with that kid? One minute he's solid and will recruit like crazy for Nebraska, then he is looking around. Now he came to the TTech game, made friends with Carter and sealed the deal with him. From what Carter said, he asked Gabbert if he would be at Nebraska and Gabbert told him, "if you're in, I'm in."

In the Irish Sports Daily article, he says that he's going to start working Linder, Joyner, and Riggs to get them to follow him to South Bend. I don't think it's going to work with Riggs. Cody said everyone was even, but didn't seem very glowing with his comments after the USC game. Joyner and Linder may be different stories. Joyner said it was a better visit than what he had at OSU, and Linder said the visit opened his eyes about ND and that they've moved up on his list. Take those comments as you will.

I just watched some film on Bernard, and read a few comparisons. He does seem to be in the Darius Walker mold, but with more speed. That might help you get a better reference point on his game.

I don't need a point of reference on his game, seen him plenty of times the past couple of years. To me though he's not big enough to be a power runner, no shifty or fast enough to be that guy either. He is just a balanced, solid back who will get some starts for you guys but never really be a star. I'd say he compares best to a guy like Dan Herron at Ohio State.

ND's current rb's according to rivals.
6.1 (5star) Aldridge
6.0 (high 4 star) Allen, Wood, Gray
5.9 (medium 4 star) Hughes,
5.8 (low 4 star) Riddick

USC's current rb's according to rivals
6.1 McKnight, Tyler, Johnson, Bradford (as a lb though) Gable
6.0
5.9 Shoemate
5.8 Green, Havili
5.7 McNeall
5.6 Baucham

So yeah USC has more talent there but the nd guys are theoretically a pretty talented bunch in themselves. To bad armando is the only one living up to that billing so far though

Either way it's not too bad of a loss. We still have Markeith Ambles and Matt Milton and we're still in it with some other good prospects.

I question how much Floyd actually likes us these days. At a time South Carolina and Florida lead the way but, I think he's leaning in a different direction now. His signing would be massive for us...we're looking rather light up the middle next season with the loss of Nate Pepper.

I dont know what is going through Lattimore's head. I still think we're secretly the front runners but, who knows?

He says Monte Kiffin has personally gotten involved with Luc and his family and has won over his mom. He also says Luc has an uncle in Knoxville so take all of that for what it's worth.

Liking the chances with Shaw and Joyner a lot. Those two plus the Glenville safeties (Chris Bryant and LaTwan Anderson) would give us the best DB haul this year. Henderson no one knows. Minnesota, Notre Dame, or maybe USC could get him. Mike Farrell at Rivals.com says we're the team to beat, though he's not always that good at picking these kinda things. However he did get the scoop on Corey Brown (2010 RB/WR) to OSU right before anyone else. We might lead for 5 star DT Sharrif Floyd too. We're in the top 3 with Jordan Hicks. Lots of big names we're in on...we wont get em all but we're gonna get a few at least for sure.

You guys are in better shape than ever for Joyner. Shaw is a UF lean - family wants to move to Florida. He's visiting us in Dec. I believe but probably just as a backup plan to UF.

OSU is definitely in the mix for all of those big names, but I don't think they lead for any that aren't from Glenville. Joyner to FSU is gonna seem more likely as time passes, Henderson is pretty even (no one knows like you said), Floyd to UF, Hicks to UF/Texas, etc.

OSU will need to recruit exceptionally well for those guys. Not sure you guys can close well enough to beat the UFs and USCs.

As Hines said a few posts back, it's hard to gauge what Sharrif is actually thinking. He still says he has "very high" interest in SCAR and is still planning on visiting. Who knows? His advisor said we're in really strong shape when it comes to him.

Eric Mack doesnt look like he'll be decommitting, he'll take a visit or two but, he has been recruiting hard for SCAR. He helped a great deal in landing Du'Van Millsap a couple of weeks ago.

I dont know what is going on with Kelcy Quarles or Lattimore for that matter.

4 star CB, Victor Hampton is looking more likely to land here. Ellis Johnson is going after him hard. He'll be coming in when we play Florida, though. :/

Johnavon Fulton absolutely loves us but there still some stiff competition. Fingers crossed there.

Arkansas WR commit, Marquel Wade, really likes SCAR as well. SCAR is really searching hard for a Harvin/Mcclsuter type. Promising some big time playing time right away.

MLB, Justin Parker, is looking more and more likely, he has a visit scheduled for next week. And has named SCAR ahead of Clemson as his favorite, as it is.

personally i think we get Bryant, Anderson, Joyner, and Shaw. I heard when Shaw visited Florida all the coaches said, "That kids' all buckeye". But being a cali kid who does seem to change his mind a lot it's def not 100% certain where he's going.

That's not to say I think he isn't interested, but in my opinion (which really means nothing) I'd have to say he might have a little interest but really is coming because it's vs. Minnesota.

Seantrel essentially has two options, stay at home, or play somewhere else for a national championship.

In either case, Iowa isn't the most obvious option. You might say he'll have more of an opportunity to win at Iowa than Minnesota, but if that's what is important to him, he'll just go to OSU, USC, or Florida.....not Iowa.

You're looking at Iowa as the best of both worlds, whereas most people would consider them worst of both worlds. I can't see them being higher than 5th or 6th on the list.

Well, on the negative side, I really don't think Iowa did anything to convince Seantrel. However, Minnesota might have shown him enough to make his decision easier.

I'm more worried that we didn't impress CJ in person. Hopefully he realizes today was a terrible offensive game.

Yup.

Just look at the 3rd downs. You take a game like Michigan, where we exploited the blitz to dump to the TE, perfect. Today, we could easily have done the same thing. The last couple games it just seems like our staff was just packing it in and going through the motions, especially today. We need a OC that isn't the most predictable play caller in the country.

When have I ever said he wasn't?

All I said is that the game he came to see wasn't very impressive to show to a TE recruit.

Jesus christ, stop acting like you are the end all be all of Iowa recruiting. I still think CJ ends up at Iowa, I just said we didn't have a game that would impress him.

Just because I post an opinion that might portray a possible negative light, doesn't mean I'm negative. Honestly, try looking at things realistically instead of with Black and Gold shades on. Any objective viewer could have said that this last game wouldn't have impressed CJ, yet I said hopefully he looks at our previous repertoire and how successful our TEs have been, and that he knows Iowa is the place for him.

Stop acting like any non-positive opinion is, "zzzzomgzzz Iowa sucks and hazz no chanzzz." It's called being realistic and more people respect a realistic opinion rather than a completely homeristic skewed opinion. Stop acting like I don't want CJ to come to Iowa.

It's where he should play. I don't get the fascination with putting him at LB. He's very efficient at covering the deep ball. After years and years of watching UM safeties fail miserably at this, I want a deep cover guy.

Just think...this recruiting class could bring us a secondary of Marvin Robinson, Cullen Christian and Tony Grimes as the headliners, with good depth for the class being provided by Courtney Avery, Terrence Talbott, Carvin Johnson and Adrian Witty. This is exactly the type of DB haul we need this year.

I was hoping he'd play safety as well. But there was talk of him moving to LB because he was up to something like 210+ already.


I'm actually getting more excited about Carvin Johnson as well. He seems to be a ballhawk, which we haven't had at safety, like, ever. He recently had a 2 INT, 2 sack game in the playoffs, and has something like 6 INT's overall. Plus he's supposedly a pretty good punt/kick returner. Might be an overlooked guy because he didn't really go to any camps, but the local media down there seems to like him alot.

If/when we get Grimes, I guess that means we'll be getting Clarence Murphy as well. They're apparently a package deal, according to Grimes.

His coach posted on Rivals, saying Carvin didn't hit any camps or anything of the sort. He did say that after Carvin committed to Michigan, LSU's coaches called and asked if they had dropped the ball, to which the coach said yes. Who knows? LSU could still offer. I like Carvin as a good FS as well.

If/when we get Grimes, I guess that means we'll be getting Clarence Murphy as well. They're apparently a package deal, according to Grimes.

Yeah, I think that's accurate. I'm not a huge Murphy fan, but I think he could fit in well at the DE spot in about 2-3 years. He's a virtual certainty to redshirt. He only weighs about 235 but has good burst. 2-3 years should give him time to get up to 260-265ish.

Grimes has offers from the likes of Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, Oregon and Ole Miss and is a good-sized corner. With all due respect to a guy like Dior Mathis, I'd rather we stayed away from smurf corners. Or, if you're going to bring one or two in, don't do it every single year.

In a Scout article that just came out, Murphy says that UM leads for him and Grimes, but they will wait until NSD.

You went to Iowa correct? I can almost guarantee you that the department of religion at the University of Iowa (or history, or anthropology, or sociology), and almost every other public university in the country, is at least in part dedicated to mocking the crazy **** that people believe God does, or says, or thinks. If you want to go to a University that doesn't challenge faith, go to BYU. The kid is in for a serious culture shock at UCLA.

And to your point bf51, there's a big difference between classes and departments offered and seeing a representative from the school mocking a religion on national television.

I don't agree with the kid's decision to switch based solely for that reason, nor do I believe the University or state or football team are fierce discriminators against religion, as I've said a couple times. I was merely offering up an argument as to why the kid may have made that choice, to make it seem like his decision wasn't completely irrational or unjustified.
