depends on what your team is. ohio state's scout site is way better than it's rivals site. for a lot of teams it's a bigger bang for the buck to go with their rivals site though.

Also, if you want good recruiting information, sign up at BuckeyePlanet. They're, for the most part, massive douchebags who refuse to believe that OSU doesn't have the best at everything, but they have good recruiting info.

Also, Bucknuts is an absolute farce.

As a Penn State fan, I would feel disrespected if I were the coaches. IMO, Easely only played the Lions in order to have Florida go after him more. I think he should not have even commited to Florida since everyone knew he wanted to go to Florida. I feel he was trying to get back at Florida by commiting to Penn State a few days after. I would love to have him, but I feel very disrespected towards him. Best of luck to him at Florida. The defensive prospects they have landed the past few years is absolutely ridiculous.

EVERY Penn State fan knew this for the most part. The part we don't like is how he commited to Penn State in the process then jumps ship whenever his actual favorite came calling. He shouldn't have even commited to Penn State. I knew Florida would have room for him somehow.

Which is worse, toying with the emotions of a rabid fanbase, or getting exploited for millions of dollars for 3-4 years and not earning a single dime? I could care less if these guys want to enjoy their recruiting process, they've earned it. Would you rather have him stay committed but hate PSU?

I would rather have him stay uncommited or not commit at all. Everyone knew Easley was going to Florida. Florida told him to wait, and he commited to PSU a few days later. Everyone knew he wasn't as solid he or analyst would say.

When Luc went to FSU over UT, it wasn't a "WTF?" moment - it's a football school in his home state. Butch Davis must be the best recruiter in the nation to pull these AA kids from out of state to a basketball school in the ACC.

Pull in 3 five-star defenders and the most underrated receiver in the country in Kenny Shaw is just amazing, all of this within the last month or so!

Michael L of FLAVarsity.com has told us that there is a "big one" coming soon. He wouldn't say who, but a big commitment. We're still in it for J.R. Ferguson, but we have little to no chance unless we throw the whole coaching staff at him. Christian Jones and Terrance Mitchell will be Noles. Christian Green will also be a Nole.

We're still in it for Corey Lemoiner. Louis Nix says we've been calling him still. Mack Brown also said we've been calling him.

Easley's response to Floyd:

“I don’t even know him, so I don’t know why he’d say that,” Easley added. “I’m done with recruiting now. My only visit will be to Florida and that’s where I’m going.”

I don't think Easley's scholarship gets pulled if we land Floyd. I think he'll just stick at DE and depending on what the Pouncey's do, Orr might be moved to OL.

the rumor about Floyd telling the UF coaches he'd commit to them this weekend is apparently false. The rumor that he's telling other Florida recruits he's gonna verbal to them might not be. There's lots of people including plenty of the media and players and coaches in San Antonio who think Floyd commits to Ohio State. It was said a that Florida's coaches said they'd be "shocked" if they get Floyd saturday. So..........yeah, I guess we'll have to wait until Saturday to see which one he picks, could go either way.

But with the two new commits, the dominant performance of UF commits at the UAA game, and with the new staff being solidified, they could be riding some solid momentum into Feb 3rd.

Told ya he was wavering. Didn't think it was likely he switched, but all it took was a long talk with Meyer, who is like a father figure to him. Mom wants him at UF too, and I'm sure his brother Abram is on that same train, having been coached by Meyer.

Hankins really didn't have offers from Florida and Alabama. They were "We're interested but we'll have to see how things go" type verbal offers. If Hankins had a committable written UF offer, he'd be a Gator.

Hankins is a pretty good player but there are some major work ethic questions there. That's the reason why Michigan waited until the last weekend of November to offer him. Who knows though. If he works his butt off, I could see him playing as a freshman.

Christian Bryant has been the best east DB by far in San Antonio. Exciting news (for me anyway :P), he has been head and shoulders above LaTwan Anderson. Anderson has that kind of auror about him that you never notice him in coverage, but he'll get an interception and take it to the house everytime. Not anything like a ballhawk yet who gets all the PBUs or tackles, but he is explosive with the ball in his hands. Intersting how Bryant has been way better than Anderson though, he was clearly the best Glenville DB this year, and it's finally starting to show. Maybe scout/rivals will figure that out finally and fix their DB rankings.

Interesting note from Mike Farrell:

"Hearing Sharrif Floyd and Seantrel Henderson have been talking a lot about going to Ohio State together which was interesting. Floyd is still a toss up between Florida and OSU but his talking to Henderson has to be good news for Buckeye fans on both fronts."

and from Floyd's mouth on SI:

"I told a few of [my teammates] my decision. A couple were surprised, but they could tell that I fell in love with the place. They know that this school, well, it's a program that will stand the test of time."

that second one could be read either way. me likey the first one.

The Sharrif Floyd saga this week has been insane back and forth.

I'm not gonna get into specific players, but we currently have 20 commits. If we were to keep our current class as is, we would have 8 spots left to fill by NSD. I believe those spots would be....

3 OL
2 DL
1 LB
1 DB
Wildcard= prob another lineman

We're leading for John Cullen and Chaz Green in the OL.
We're also pushing hard for Torrian Wilson, Damien Robinson, Shon Coleman, and James Stone.
If we could grab a top runningback we'll take one, but if not we won't take one.
On the D-line we're pushing hard for Brandon Willis, Corey Lemonier, and Kelcy Quarles. As a back-up plan we lead for David Mahoney.
At linebacker we're pushing for Christian Jones and Josh Shirley.
At defensive back we're going strong for Ahmad Dixon.
Our coaches also just met with Da'Rick Rodgers and got him to take an OV with us.

If he gets the scores, 90% confident he comes here. Not confident at all that he gets the scores though.

And yea, a lot of canes fans are pissed that Geno isn't a cane, especially with the transfers and Jacory's struggles/injuries down the stretch. He didn't want to sit behind Jacory for 3 years though so it wasn't gonna happen.

all indications say OSU all the way. there is one rumor on some update that he'll pick WVU though, so it's not 100% certain. The word is if he picks WVU it'll be b/c his grade situation didn't check out like they thought it would. All the people who would know say OSU though as they have all along.

It may or it may not. I don't know why since he's going to have competition anywhere he goes. I am pretty sure three backs leave after next season, so Lattimore could get some carries. Also, if he can beat out Green and/or Beachum and Carter, he'll get carries.

Tony Grimes and Clarence Murphy were both silents before Jay Hopson left to take the Memphis defensive coordinator job. Both are up in the air now, but are expected to pick U-M in the end.

Hankins really didn't have offers from Florida and Alabama. They were "We're interested but we'll have to see how things go" type verbal offers. If Hankins had a committable written UF offer, he'd be a Gator.

Hankins is a pretty good player but there are some major work ethic questions there. That's the reason why Michigan waited until the last weekend of November to offer him. Who knows though. If he works his butt off, I could see him playing as a freshman.

Where have you been reading this? I've been following Scout.com's Practice Blog and they've had pretty mixed reviews on Bryant. I've read just as much bad as I have good.

Day 1
Christinan Green beat Christian Bryant (http://recruiting.scout.com/a.z?s=73&p=8&c=1&nid=4233622) on a fly nice throw caught for TD.

Day 2
Kyle Prater(USC) shook Christian Bryant (uncommitted) like a dog shaking a flea.

Day 3
Jones throws 55 yards to Christian Green who smoked Christian Bryant on the play, nice juke to separate.
AJ Derby fires a TD to Sticks McCartney who beat Christian Bryant.

If he's the East's best defensive back, it's going to be a long day on Saturday against those West receivers.

keylime_5
01-07-2010, 09:55 PM
I think most of this is from scout.com. I took it off buckeyeplanet and from another message board that was discussing it.

"Bryant may not be as big as some of the other corners in this game, but his cover skills are as good, if not better, than anyone here," said Scout.com East Regional Manager Bob Lichtenfels. "He plays much bigger than he is and plays a physical brand of ball. Bryant shows impressive closing speed and a very smooth and fluid back pedal. He made several big plays (during practice), most notably a diving interception of a deep pass. What is even more impressive about Bryant's showing (Tuesday) was the fact that he challenged the nation's No. 2-rated wide receiver, Kyle Prater, most of the day."

"Christian Bryant had a great day and was arguably the best cover corner on the east team today."

"Bryant is currently a four-star and rated as one of the top 100 players in the country, but made a ton of plays today and outplayed even our expectations. He is never out of position and rarely makes a mistake. "

"Top Defensive Backs
1. Keenan Allen
2. Christian Bryant
3. Cullen Christian
4. Jaylen Watkins
5. Matt Elam"

"If there is a player on the East team that you can say is under rated it is Christian Bryant. Bryant has consistently been the best cover corner during the East practices. Bryant doesn’t talk or say much, but he makes plays. He made several big break-ups during the morning practice session on Tuesday. He is also a very gritty player that is more physical than most players his size."

plus there's some premium first hand reports i won't post b/c it's on the pay board that has glowing remarks that say basically the same stuff. Allen has been at safety, so when I said best DB I guess I should've said best CB to be more accurate. Allen is a physical freak.

You're the one following michigan.....but isn't the DLine a pretty big weakness, depth wise? Slow play or no play....it doesn't make sense for the in state school to not go after a body at an assumed position of need if teams like Ohio State, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Florida offered/showed interest/whatever you want to believe.

Either the michigan coaching staff is dead certain the kid's weight issues and lack of effort are going to make him completely worthless (hello Shaq Rowell), or they're kind of inept. Looking at the whole debacle that is the Rich Rodriguez era so far.....I'm leaning towards the latter.

I wouldn't say the DLine as a whole is a weakness depth wise, with something like 13-14 guys after this recruiting class for a 3 man line. What I would say, and somewhat agree with you on, is that the big body NT guys are sorely lacking (read: nonexistent) after Will Campbell. Which was the reason I wanted Hankins so badly.

Hell, at this point I'd settle for taking a damn -6 star guy as long as he's big enough to fill that spot for a few plays without falling over or dying.

Michigan has got a couple DTs in Richard Ash and Terry Talbot so it's not a huge loss. And Hankins wasn't considered till really late in the process.

I wouldn't blow NT off as a pretty big need though. Both of those guys are UT or 3-4 DE types basically. Really, the majority of the positions on defense are positions of need at this point, talentwise anyway.

I know NT is a need, but With Talbott and Ash in, plus BWC, and Sagesse and Banks, and Mike Martin we have some solid players for next year and another year to add depth

Right, my point is that basically only Will Campbell is a true NT. Every one of those other guys would be playing out of position at NT. Hell, Mike Martin is the biggest one other than Will Campbell out of that group, and he was (and still is) quite undersized for the role he's asked to fill. Ideally, you'd want to see something like

DT-Mike Martin
NT-Will Campbell
DE-RVB

as a starting group this coming year. I'm not sure if you'll see it though, as outside of Martin and Campbell, no one really has the size to fill that role.

Got some encouraging words today on Sean Parker, and this was before the Pete Carroll news. Haven't heard a "yes" yet, but I'm pretty confident especially now that Carroll is gone to the NFL. Also heard some rumblings (from a less reliable source) that Dillon Baxter is strongly considering Michigan right now. I'm not holding my breath on that one though.

Ya I highly doubt Baxter. Hopefully Parker, also I guess this means Henderson to OSU.

Ha, I don't know. You're right, though. Cissoko, Mathis, Hollowell. Also, their linemen seem to be pretty damn big. Joseph Barksdale and William Campbell can attest to that.

I like smaller, quicker corners when they go man-to-man against slot guys.

Is it possible their coaching staff moves smaller guys to CB as freshman? Like they prefer certain size guys at certain positions and move them accordingly as first year guys? Just a theory, but it seems plausible to me after thinking about it.

If Seantrel commits to USC even after Carrol leaves that would add a lot of legitimacy to those rumors.

Yeah, just announced, the Tackling Machine was a done deal per crimsontide.com, he's in-state from Theodore & that's a Mobile suburb. I see him in the LB corps with Jerrell Harris, Nico Johnson & Hightower coming back on a medical redshirt but it's for his soph. yr.

besides them when someone had their kid @18 and their kid is 18 the father can be 36 or 37 not 35. Therefore calling him 40 is about as accurate as calling him 35
