***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.

  • 08 Recruits vs. 09 Recruits thread

    Assuming most of us have a pretty good idea of how good the 09 prospects are, let's do a comparison thread.

    Someone starts off by pitting an '08 recruit vs. '09 recruit. Next person replies and puts up another two.

    I'll start it off:


    Manti Te'o vs. Arthur Brown

  • #2
    Te'o is just as good of an athlete as Brown, if not better. Both big hitters. The thing that puts Manti over the top is he has real LB size.

    Marcus Forston vs Jaccobi McDaniel

    Comment


    • #3
      Forston. Marcus has the weight to start and dominate right now. McDaniel is listed at 267 and could possibly need a redshirt.

      (btw, is Te'o as fast as Brown? I thought that was what made Brown so highly touted)

      Dre KirkPatrick vs. Patrick Johnson

      Comment


      • #4
        PJ, he is quicker and better cuts. Both very large for CB's, but I give the edge to PJ.


        Rueben Randle vs. Julio Jones or even A.J. Green.

        Comment


        • #5
          Julio Jones. A 6'4, 214 lbs receiver with 4.45 speed, and his strength do not come by often.

          Darrell Scott or Cierre Wood?

          Comment


          • #6
            Scott. He's the bigger, faster California back with more burst. Bryce Brown however is a better guy to compare with.

            Terrelle Pryor or Matt Barkley (oooohhh).

            Comment


            • #7
              Petey Smith or Arthur Brown?

              Comment


              • #8
                Hard to compare different styles, but I'd go with Berkley. I'm not too much into the "dual" threat QB's. I'm sure Pryor will be an excellent QB, but I'd rather have a pocket QB than a scrambling QB. Personal preference. Maybe a better comparison would be Dayne Crist vs. Matt Berkley or Terrell Pryor vs. Kevin Newsome?

                Devon Kinnard vs DaQuan Bowers

                    Guys as the first post indicates, you must first answer the previously asked comparison, before you ask your own.

                      I'm actually going to go with Kennard, although I'm probably in the minority. Kennard and Griffen are the two players I'd say have the most potential at DE (or OLB) in the past 5 years or so coming out of school.

                      Jamarkus McFarland or Marcus Forston?

                      • #12
                        Forston.

                        Ej Manuel or Morgan Newton?
                        Hi Mom. Send money!

                          I'll take Arthur Brown's closing burst for Te'o size. King Arthur closes better then any recruit I've ever seen, period.

                          Forston hands down better then McDaniel. Forston and Marvin Austin (07 recruit) mite be the two best DTs recruits in the past 10 years.

                            You gotta go with the dual threat QB in college. It's actually a safer pick at the college level. Much more of the top ranked dual threat guys have panned out than busts.

                              2003 and 2004 obviously favor the pro style guys, 2005 maybe a slight advantage to the dual threat guys, 2006 i'd have to say it's basically a toss up, maybe a slight advantage for pro style. I didn't go past that because it's obviously too early to tell with the 2007 and 2008 classes. Really the only thing that these rankings prove is that they are pretty useless...
