Personally I think it's stupid when players fake like they're going to pick a school or try to build drama while picking. How self-absorbed can you get?

18 year old kids always being told how great they are? Don't underestimate their self-absorbedness haha.

Way too early and baseless prediction to laugh at in Feb. 2010:

Tennessee has the top class with Miami finishing second and the South Florida homers (like me) will complain way too loud that we really had the best class since we all know South Florida talent is the best.

USF is going to lose Todd Chandler. Mark it down.

His arm is better than alright, but yea, his accuracy is not great. Then again, he has been playing QB for about 2 seasons. He has a very strong arm, seems to have good presence, and overall seems to be pretty smart/making good decisions. His accuracy just leaves much to be desired, but I'm hopeful.

I guarantee Cigaro and his friends over at CockyTalk could scrounge up an update for us. They're probably focusing on their loss to UConn and their own problems rather than Vols "issues."

Speaking of the UConn game, I was that one with my dad. Both of us had our Vols gear on and sat on the Carolina side. They pretty much booed and complained the entire time, but I can't really blame them. Drive/fly all the way to Birmingham, just to see their team lay and egg. The stadium had to of been 75-80% Gamecocks too.

Did i see he committed to Dartmouth. Something tells me that isnt firm.

About Marcoux:

I play at Dartmouth. He visited in the fall and i got to meet him. He's a smart kid and a really good guy-he seems to, at least personality wise, fit in here really well overall. obviously talent-wise he can dominate the ivies.

He committed here and was admitted as part of our early decision class. Technically, this isn't firm. Last year we had another 6'5" QB from oklahoma who backed out to go to OU(not playing football anymore), and he to had been an ED commit. The last big-time QB we got is our Junior starter now who could have gone to UCF. We kept him because he would consider no non-Ivy's except for Stanford(not even Duke).

So yes, he could opt to go to another school still. I'm obviously biased in what I would prefer to see, but sticking with Dartmouth would be a better deal for him unless an offer from Stanford comes along. An Ivy League degree is an invaluable thing to have, especially when you consider that college ball lasts for just four years. You can't play forever, but a Dartmouth degree(and the pay/prestige that comes with it) lasts for your entire life. You won't get this at most FBS schools, save for Stanford.

I like to think(based on the conversations I've had with him) that he and his family are of this mindset and barring a stanford offer are likely to stick with us. But we'll see. QB's have played in this game before and still remained committed to the ivy League(Liam O'Hagan of Harvard in 03, most recently). It can be done.

CashmoneyDrew

I like Tennessee's class a lot so far, especially after losing our RB/ST's/Florida guy in Eddie Gran and WR/Louisiana guy in...I forget his name. QB was a huge need, and they've landed a JUCO QB with Sims and a future guy in 4* Tyler Bray. They've done well on offense with Ambles (#7 WR), Kenbrell Thompkins (#1 JUCO WR), Matt Milton (#45 WR), and JaWuan James (#24 OT), but they've done outstanding on the defensive side.

They've got the #2 DE corps coming with Corey Miller (#3 WDE), Jacques Smith (#5 WDE), Brandon Willis (#6 SDE), and J.C. Copeland (#17 WDE) (Willis and Copeland could move inside eventually). They're getting a 4* JUCO DT, which is a huge need. Plus, DB Ahmad Dixon (#9 S) is a great get, and 4* WR Ted Meline will probably play CB. Delvin Jones, a 6'6 230 lb jumbo athlete, could play DE as well, but a lot of talk has him playing TE too after losing TE Ken Adams.

Not to mention, Paaaaarlaaaaardyyyyyyyy! :D

The class isn't full yet, so hopefully we'll land a few more guys. I'm hopin' for Chaz Green (#4 OT), John Cullen (#1 JUCO OL), and/or another OL after seing the DL pull Florida got today. At DE, Florida has the #1 class and Georgia has the #3, so bring on the OL's!

Nope, but there's been rumors swirling around him for a while with different schools. He's got a visit scheduled at Ole Miss this month, and I think a few other Vols commits will be going with him. I know 3* LB Ralph Williams, who's also from Miami, will be going with him, and I believe Markeith Ambles will be going too.

He has scheduled visits coming up I think to the SEC & other schools, he can sit back & watch the offers pour in & take his pick. If Dame lands him to replace the 2 WRs they're losing, watch out. He's the best prospect at that position since Julio, could turn a program into a winnah & a HC into a heavyweight overnight.

Hey, not a bad idea. Just "quit" at the end of every season so you can call recruits as much as you want. Then right after NSD announce that you've "found the love for the game again," or something similiarly vague. It's a perfect plan!

The Leavitt firing is the best thing that could have happened for the Gamecocks. Landing Ace Sanders would be huge for us. Spurrier and G.A. Mangus just had a nice visit with him. He considers SCAR his leader now that USF is out of the picture.

We're really looking for a Harvin or a Mccluster type of play maker. Who isnt? But Spurrier has put great onus on this. So we should see a nice competition between he, Sean Tapley, and Nick Jones for that role. Nick Jones may actually be the best option here, the guy can run.

Just curious but did anyone hear the announcers continuously talk about Meyer calling all of his recruits everyday. I don't know if they were just saying this but isn't now the dead period in recruiting in which each team is only allowed 1 call to a prospect per week. Just curious but did anyone else notice this?
I doubt Meyer is the only one to do this...

Ace Sanders is exactly what Carolina needs. Someone who can take it all the way. A playmaker who can get to the edge of the defenses and someone with slot potential and he definitely fits that role. As long as Florida doesn't toss their hat in his race I think he'll be a Gamecock.

Oh and I played against Nick Jones, granted it was 2 years ago but he will help eventually I think. If anything ensure us getting Lattimore.

Not sure if this was already posted, but since Pete Carroll is leaving USC, All-American wide receiver Kyle Prater has opened up his recruiting again. I would think that Oklahoma, Tennessee, Notre Dame, and Illinois now all have a shot at Prater again.

Hope he stays home and goes to the Illini!

Didn't Jones de-commit from Tennessee?

Here's an exerpt from a Scout article:

“I feel really good about my commitment to Tennessee,” Jones said. “I like the coaches a lot, I like what Lane Kiffin is building at Tennessee.”

“Coach Kiffin is telling me he wants me to play some wide out or tight end, and some of the coaches want me at defensive end,” Jones said. “What I like about Tennessee the most is the opportunity to play early as a true freshman. Coach Kiffin proved this season the best player will play no matter how old he is.”

Dude is gonna get on the field early. Dude runs track and timed a 10.7 100m at 6'6, 230 lbs, which is obscene. The offensive coaches want him at TE, and the defensive coaches want him at DE/OLB. He had 20 sacks in his junior season, so hopefully he ends up on defense.

Plus, he looks like a tyrannasaurus rex. :cool:

His take on the Hankins thing is the latest in a long line of "reports" that just has me shaking my head.

He said he's going to home and will discuss with his parents whether he should switch or not. Sounds like we made an impression. Keep in mind we hired an NFL inside linebackers coach, so this guy will know what to do to get Taylor into the NFL as much as Monte will, if not better. There aren't as many teams using the Cover 2 as the 4-3 and 3-4, where Edwards specializes.

And basically what Urban has done is hire guys who will do his job for him. Durkin is taking linebackers and special teams duty, We have like 17 defensive position coaches and coordinators, and Loeffler, Addazio, and Azzanni on offense.

This is why Byrnes guys need to go to SCAR, at least if the coach leaves on you, you're still close to home. At least. haha.

You guys are losing everything though - HC, Orgeron, and DC. That's a lot. And isn't Orgeron the O-Line coach as well? Big blow to any recruits.

Rumors thus far have:

Brandon Willis -> UNC
Jacques Smith -> LSU
Corey Miller -> USCe
Juawuan James -> UGA

Willis and Miller are not officially enrolled, but that info could be wrong. From what I understand, even though they are submitted, accepted, etc., they're free to open things back up until class starts.

Rivals reports only Thompkins and Matt Simms as EE's.

They start class tomorrow. So technically, they still have an out. Seems unlikely, though.

I just read an article about Miller's EE and he just seems super excited to go to Tenn. so I doubt anything happens there.

Alright, that's possible then. It wouldn't shock me to see them stick, but obviously this could affect some of those guys if my info is right. The only thing we can really do is wait.

Heard Dixon is already a done deal to USCw, or I may have misread. He's gone, though.

Ambles might get a look from UF again if we think his head is cleared up. He wanted to commit to us bad at FNL and went to you guys partly to get back at us.

HAHAHA, wow, just got news that one of the Kiffins was on a CA radio show and said he would take Ronald Powell.

Cregg was the OL Coach, and he's probably gone with the rest.

Pretty confident Smith sticks no matter what, as long as Hamilton doesn't totally screw up the hiring process.

Kiffin was scheduled to meet with Tennessee players at about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday to break the news.

Gary Willis, the father of Tennessee recruit Brandon Willis, had planned to drive his son from Duncan, S.C., to Knoxville, Tenn., on Tuesday night so Brandon could begin classes on Wednesday. "We won't be going to Tennessee now," the elder Willis said.

Willis had narrowed his choices to UCLA, North Carolina and Tennessee. He announced his commitment to Tennessee during Saturday's U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas. The elder Willis said the family had spoken to UCLA and North Carolina coaches on Tuesday night after Kiffin news broke. Had Willis set foot in a class at Tennessee, he would have had to obtain a waiver from the NCAA to transfer without sitting out a year. "I'm glad it happened when it happened," Gary Willis said. "It could have been a real mess."

Jawuan James and Zach Fulton have already enrolled, so we're good there.

Depending on how quickly we make a hire, I still think we'll be players for Chaz Green and John Cullen.

Marques Pair = who knows?

O-line is crucial indeed.

Those are the only ones officially, but no doubt more will come. Hearing JaWuan James and Matt Milton were on campus, but likely won't attend school today - they'll probably try to find another school unless a new coach comes in and saves the day.

Tyler Bray, the most important recruit in this class, has said he's staying with the Vols though.

I heard that the NCAA had given Milton and others an "out" because of the timing of the move and will allow them to transfer without penalty. I'm not sure if he would leave or not though this late in the game.

20ish. maybe 21-22 including Carlos Hyde who went to prep school for the fall and is enrolled now.

We have room for Henderson, Bryant, Hicks, and James. Chances are we don't get all those guys, we might take WR/ATH Dominique Brown if he checks out academically.
