Ferentz doesn't want the kid. How many other coaches turn down an in-home to the #2 recruit in the entire country? Read between the lines.

I'd place Louis below about 5 other WR's who we have a shot at now, I don't think there was every any real word about him switching to UF except during the week of the UAA game, and even then it was just talk.

Well, technically it could be either way. Ferentz could have realized it was a lost cause and said **** it, then canceled and decided to stop recruiting him. Or Ferentz could have canceled his visit and the Hendersons said **** this and dropped Iowa.

Really, I don't know if there's any way to tell who did what first, but the matter of it is that Henderson previously had interest in attending Iowa and it appears that now that ship has sailed. If Iowa and Seantrel are completely done with one another, it really doesn't matter who dropped who (Told).

Iowa has always been in the picture, just not to the extent that Told wanted us to believe. They were in his top seven and then they'd pop up every now and then, but they weren't as high on his list like some of the other schools that he clearly favored more.

Why was there an in home visit if he wasn't interested in Iowa? Iowa was a part of his final 8. I'm not saying he was deciding between Iowa and the school he eventually goes to, but don't act like he had absolutely no interest in Iowa because then you just sound dumb.

And I said the reason Ferentz canceled was likely because he realized that Seantrel wasn't coming to Iowa. That doesn't mean there was never interest, it means that he has more interest in going to some other school. If Seantrel goes to Florida, are you telling me he had no interest in OSU, USC, Minnesota, Miami, etc.?

Again, I don't know what happened and I'm not pretending to, but it's quite obvious that there was at least mutual interest between the two parties as recent as a week ago. This late in the process, you don't let a random coach come into your house to talk to you about football if your mind is already set on one or a handful of teams.

all i'm hearing is that he's gonna visit Va Tech at the end of the month and the rivals VT guy is giddy about it, but I really don't expect much to come of it. The rumors about Louis switching his verbal have been going on for many months. He is tight with Keith Byars, and he might take a visit to UNC as well. His mom wants him to take visits and Tressel encourages his recruits to visit everywhere to be sure they want to be Buckeyes.

He may visit, but Mark Leal has a decent shot at coming with him.

Also, it's not just Brian. An insider or two are also feeling good about the situation.

And unlike some of these teams who have just jumped in, VT has been there since the beginning for Louis.

IDK, we'll see.

Justin Hunter's recruiter for Tennessee is bolting for USC...

Hunter's HS coach, dad, and uncle have said that he's still a solid commitment to UT, and Dooley went to the in-home visits with Garza as well so there's still an established relationship there.

Besides, Garza coached DB's, not WR's. And I read it was explained to Hunter that the possibility of Garza leaving was very possible.

That doesn't mean another school could end up changing his mind though.

well...

Per Hooker, Mrs Hunter is very upset at the departure of Willie Mack Garza to USC. The recruitment of the WR prospect is back open.
She said these kids are treated like commodities and that she suspects Garza new he was leaving all along.

Gloria Hunter said her son is now considering LSU, Florida, Alabama, USC and UT. She added that the coaches switching jobs so freely is “so sad.”

Dave Hooker is terrible. A lot of the UT beat writers, Knoxville area writers, and UT bloggers are bad. GoVolsXtra had "BREAKING NEWS: David Cutcliffe to be next Head Coach!!!" A lot of them showed how eager they were to be the first to crack the story. Hooker's been the only one to report that Hunter's commitment is even close to wavering. Not saying that what his mom said doesn't have merit, but she sounded angry - so maybe it was mostly emotion talking about where her son would go.

I'd say Wes Rucker and Brent Hubbs are the most accountable. Rucker was the one who reported that he spoke with Hunter's coach, dad, and uncle, and was told he's still a solid commit. I believe Hubbs has stated that he thinks Hunter will stay as well. So the more accountable guys have contradicted Hooker.

But like I said, doesn't mean he won't change his mind. Just saying he's still a solid commitment.

It was pretty widely thought that if Hicks didn't enroll to Texas early, he wasn't going to go there. What I don't get about Buckeye thinking is that it's also pretty widely thought that the only thing keeping Jordan Hicks from being a Gator is his mom's love of Mack Brown and UT.

Dave Berk said his best source says Hicks is gonna enroll at Ohio State in march, so the scout guys predicting Hicks to OSU stems from that bit of info from Berk. I think Greg Powers said he heard the same thing as well. Both the OSU insiders on BSB predict Hicks to Texas and said they hope they're wrong. That's what's up.

The "top ranked" guys had little to no interest in Miami this year, not much the coaches could do with them. Also most people would say rivals/scout is really underrating UM players this year. Jeremy Davis and Kevin Nelson are both insanely underrated. 2 rivals100 guys are very legit options for the Canes as well so the class likely ends up in the top 15, in a recruiting year that hasn't been that great but much better than it looks on the recruiting sites.

Are Miami as rich as the SEC schools? maybe they don't have the recruiting teams/budgets these other schools have, especially since good south florida recruiters are such a hot commodity.

Miami was in contention for the national championship in 2005 - one loss by Texas or USC that season puts Miami in the national championship prior to Georgia Tech loss

Yes, they took a nosedive in 06 and 07, but leveled off in 08, were in serious contention for a BCS Bowl again this year, and appear to be a preseason top 12 team next year with an absolutely loaded team coming back.

To say they haven't been in contention for anything serious or relevant since 2003 is pretty foolish in my opinion.

They are a small private school with an extremely small athletic budget. It's no secret that Miami is a poor school in terms of athletic finances.

But they still landed the #1 class in 2008 with the same budget. Miami needs to feed off primarily South Florida kids, and this year, that's just not happening for whatever reason whether it be depth charts, better opportunities elsewhere, wanting to leave home, or just plain not interested. Shannon is trying not to throw scholarships to any old Miami area high school football players.. he wants players to earn it, not receive one because they are local.

Teams have figured out in a big way that recruiting South Florida is a must for any school that's trying to compete at a national level, as well.

Miami was in contention for the national championship in 2005 - one loss by Texas or USC that season puts Miami in the national championship prior to Georgia Tech loss

Yes, they took a nosedive in 06 and 07, but leveled off in 08, were in serious contention for a BCS Bowl again this year, and appear to be a preseason top 12 team next year with an absolutely loaded team coming back.
I will admit that if it weren't for losing, Miami definitely would have been in a BCS bowl.

To defend bf51 like others have, he's never claimed Minnesota to be good at football. In fact, it's quite the contrary and he's probably the most realistic poster in this thread.

I just think his definition of "in contention" is different than most people's, I suppose.

Look, I am not saying that Miami is an elite program again. You're right, they haven't been to a BCS bowl for awhile now, but the program is clearly trending upwards.

The reason they started to get crappy was a combination of a number of things.

For one, the SEC got a hell of a lot better, mainly Florida. Urban Meyer has been the worst thing to happen to Miami in a long time. Add in the emergence of USF (who's taking the academically questionable kids and running with them), the presence that West Virginia, Rutgers, and FSU have made in South Florida.. you've got yourself a battle with a lot of kids that would normally be dying to get an offer from UM. They have options now.

Secondly, the program was undoubtedly ravaged by the NFL. It wasn't just the stars like Sean Taylor, Andre Johnson, Willis McGahee, Kellen Winslow, but a lot of marginal players as well jumping to the NFL that really depleted the depth of the team.

Third, Larry Coker. Not much more to be said here. He was not the right coach for this team. Long story short, he tried to and unsuccessfully expand the program's recruiting base nationally, allowing other schools such as the aforementioned WVU, Rutgers, USF, and FSU to come into Dade County and take players that weren't necessarily stars, but solid players that should have indeed earned scholarships from Miami.

Fourth, the program busted @ QB with Wright, Freeman, and Marve. Call it bad coaching, call them overrated, it really doesn't matter. The most important position in college football was a point of weakness for the 05-08 teams.

I expect a good close from Randy Shannon this year, and even if he's not the long-term coach here, he's definitely taken the program back in the right direction.

Miami's classes usually fluctuate based on South Florida talent, especially during a stretch in which they haven't been the premier FL team. Usually they can recruit other areas well, but it's hard without the results.

That's one way of looking at it. Another way would be that Miami hasn't been in contention for anything serious since 2003. Meanwhile, 27 different teams have played in a BCS bowl.

I'm not making any guarantees, but this kid's a program changer unlike anyone the city of Miami has churned out in a very long time. He is already Shannon's #1 priority.

They are, but my original point was that I believe a lack of success has started to catch up with Miami on the recruiting trail (I could totally be wrong, by the way, I'm just venturing a guess).

You can only go on the past for so long. For a lot of these recruits, they were 12 the last time Miami won a really big game. Maybe that matters, maybe it doesn't, but being involved in big games and then losing them hardly proves me wrong. Using 2005 as an example again, Miami started off highly ranked and made it up to #3 by beating one ranked team, only to then lose to Georgia Tech and then get crushed by LSU. Yes, logistically they were "in contention", but in reality they failed, hard. If you don't start winning big games, after a while the talk about being on the upswing is just hot air.

It's a definite factor, but Miami was never really bringing in top classes anyways before their dynasty. The two classes that brought most of the studs to Miami were not very highly ranked. Dorsey, Ed Reed, McKinnie, Gonzalez were all "sleepers" at the time of their recruitment.

Other than the 2008 class (pretty much all South Floridians), the "highly ranked" classes that Miami brought in during the Coker years were for the most part, pretty awful. Also, the #1 ranked 2008 class was after the worst year Miami football has had since the probation years. So, what makes it different this year from the past years Miami won 7-8 games? Especially considering the fact that the team actually improved on the field and nearly won 10 games?

Miami is and will always be dependent on the talent level of Dade County. It's just the way it is.

Except for Penn State and OSU(both dominate a talent rich state), I fear for the big northern teams. The power is moving south and will continue to do so over the next ten years.

Except for history, there is no reason why Michigan and Notre Dame should be national powers year in, year out. Because of that history, I see them as solid teams with occasional great years but no where near the likes of Florida, OSU, Oklahoma, USC, LSU, Alabama, Texas, FSU etc.

I was a little surprised actually. I never thought he'd end up in Florida, though. He said he liked the Skip Holtz hiring for USF so, I thought he'd go back to them. Nice sign for us.

As for Lattimore...the guy can start from day one. Kenny Miles became the main back but, Lattimore still blows them all out of the water. Maddox never panned out and isnt all that great and Giles is always in Spurrier's dog house, despite being the best RB on the team right now. SCAR isn't afraid to give Freshman large roles...he'd be featured right away. We certainly have a horrible line, though. It'd be enough to scare me away, if I was in his shoes.

Yeah, I knew we would get a "sleeper" recruit at some point. They seem to do this every year.

Rivals.com has Bars as 6'-3" 225lbs with 4.5 speed. Hmmm, if that's correct, then he is certainly an interesting prospect.

I think Jordan Hicks is as can't miss as you can get as a kid going from high school to college. I see Derrick Johnson all over again.

I don't know anything about Tevin Jackson, but he better be beyond a freaking stud if he's supposed to be better than Hicks.

Hicks is rated better than Jackson in most likely every board in the country.

I just think Jackson has NFL potential written all over him. He's beyond a great athlete for his age and experience in the game. I see Hicks as a Derrick Johnson (former Longhorn) and Jackson as a Keith Rivers type player.

Just my opinion though. I think most people would take Hicks' potential over Jackson's but we'll see in three or four years.

Rogers is a real good prospect. Kind of a LB/S 'tweener, but a player, and a pretty big get for a school like Louisville.

Cincinnati Winton Woods QB Dominique Brown visits Louisville this weekend, he could pick them. Probably plays WR in college though (he was a triple option QB at WWoods). He is an elite athlete with tremendous upside, which is why he got into the latest Rivals 250. Grades kept him from getting a bunch of early offers. I wouldn't be surprised if he picked Ohio State or Cincinnati though. It depends on if he wants to play QB or WR in college and which schools promise him which position he'll play.
