***Recruiting Forum Rules - READ BEFORE POSTING***

The recruiting forum has gotten out of hand and we need to fix this right now. I admit that I myself may have slipped up in the past, but not anymore. The recruiting forum is not exempt from the rules for the rest of the forums. This is not a new rule, just a clarification of an existing one.

Links:

No factual information can be posted without a link to the source of that information. This means any time a player commits to a school, names a leader, drops a school from his list, etc. you must provide a link with your post. If you do not have a valid link supporting your information then keep it to yourself. Obviously, you don't need to link to your own personal opinions. Just make it clear that they are your opinions.

Acceptable Sources:

Most online newspapers and websites are acceptable. No premium information (info that you pay for) is to be posted. The only exception to that rule is if the information you are posting is in the header of a premium article, which is free for all to read. If the information is hidden behind the words "click here to subscribe," then don't even bother. Websites such as Buckeye Planet, IrishEvy, and MGoBlog are acceptable. However, only information from the articles/interviews/blog posts from these sites are permissible. Any information obtain on one of these sites' message boards should be assumed to be unreliable (even if you yourself trust it). Anything posted on Facebook is private information and should be treated that way.

Disciplinary Action:

Since this is a fresh reminder, everyone gets one freebie. The first time you break this rule, you will have your post deleted and that is it. If you break it a second time, your post will be deleted and you will get a warning. If you ignore the warning and break it a third time, you will receive an infraction.

Remember, these are Scott Wright's rules not mine. We want everyone to still have fun, but we can't keep ignoring the rules of the website.

  • Most underrated recruit of 2008

    With out a doubt its Omar Hunter, the fact that he is ranked as the 21st best DT on Rivals and the 15th best on scout is laughable. I never seen such a compact, strong, and explosive DT coming out of HS in my life. His measurables and highlight film are amazing as well http://footballrecruiting.rivals.com...p?pr_key=58964

    Shockingly, Axl picks a Notre Dame recruit.

    Nevertheless, I like Nigel Carr for this category. Great size and speed and he's only #51 on Rivals? Surprising. Him and Nigel Bradham are gonna make up one hell of a linebacking core for FSU. Throw in Nick Moody at safety and they have 3 ridiculous defensive players as of right now.

      Perhaps you haven't heard of Marvin Austin?

        The two that I have seen are DJ Woods and D'Anton Lynn.

        Everywhere Woods camps, he ends up getting an offer at. He got offers from Nebraska, OSU, Auburn, PSU, etc., just on the camp circuit.

        D'Anton Lynn pretty much does the same. When USC dips into Texas to offer a 3 star safety, you know the guy is pretty good.

          Lynn was injured last year, I don't know why the average fan knows more than the recruiting services. He's a high 4* based on his film.

          Only because he's ranked so ridiculously low, the answer is Michael Mauti. His combine stats were among the best in SA, I noticed him waaaay before I even knew he had a PSU connection. His film is the tits, and he had top offers. His ranking his the most confusing I've ever seen since I started following this stuff closely in '03. I think he and Colasanti are the two best LB's we got since Connor.

            Well since I'm a ND fan I'm more familiar with ND recruits. I thought he was the best DT this year even when it looked like he was going to Michigan. Thank god he didn't go to Michigan.

              Austin is good, don't get me wrong but Hunter IMO is more explosive, quicker, and plays much nastier.

                While you could be right because I have no idea who you're talking about, go watch the MA video at the PSU camp. It looks like me going against 10 year olds.

                  Alright alright fair enough. My homer pick for most underrated is ESPN.com's #22 rated CB Boubacar Cissoko. Never mind that he's the #3 CB across the board on other sites, oh no ESPN knows better. Bunch of dumbasses. I've watched a lot of tape on this guy, and he locks down receivers SO well. For a guy who's 5-8 170 he is physical as hell and no one can get by him. I'm excited for him and Warren locking down receivers.

                      Hes the last 4 star DT on rivals and was only recently upgraded to 4 stars by Scout. I just find it hard to believe that there are so many DT's better then a guy who's 300 pounds, runs a 4.7, benches over 400, and is as quick as a cat.

                        He does not run a 4.7

                            Maybe its the competition? or maybe they just dont htink his understanding for the game or position is there... who knows... but there is a reason he isnt a 5 star

                              He plays in Georgia against real good competition. He suffered a broken leg in the off season but it didn't stop some recruits from being downgraded.
