***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.

          My top three candidates for the next "IT" school would easily be UCLA, Alabama and Clemson in no particular order. It is certainly evident by the recruiting classes these schools seem to be pulling in recently.

            I'm glad somebody realizes...Illinois has blended some underrecruited gems with top recruited superstars and now is on the VERY fast track to a NC in the next couple of years. The talent evaluation of the staff is great, among the best in the country...watch how Illinois is about to blow up. People are really going to be scratching their heads...

              So no team in the nation has been recruiting top talent? Is that what you're claiming?

                I dont know if you can call Alabama or UCLA "it" schools of the future. Id say they already are. They got top recruits, especially Alabama. Year in and year out. Even with Mike Schula they did.

                I think Illinois for sure, they will probably be the biggest name to grow.
                A couplr of sleepers, one way out, but still, are Boise State. Their classes are getting better no doubt, and with several more great season like the past couple, long with Chris Peterson, they should be out of the WAC soon, imo. Also UB...Yep Buffalo. Not saying right now, but give them several years, and I think they are going somewhere. Turner Gill has already made a huge impact with recruits. Like I said (and I'll prob get blasted for it), but i nthe future, I expect them to.

                  Yes, but this thread has more to do with the next national powerhouse I believe where all the recruits wanna go like USC in college FB and UNC in college BB.

                    i'm pretty sure he's not counting the schools that are already in the upper echelon of the NCAA... teams like USC, OSU, Georgia, LSU, Florida, Texas, etc...


                    Sig by me... Hold the applause.

                      I believe any school that is in the top 10 in recruiting year in and year out is an "IT" school. Not just USC.

                        I understand, and thats why I listed a couple schools of the future. But take a school like Alabama. Andre Smith, top OL recruit 2 years ago. Julio Jones this year. Derrick Pope even though it was a Juco. UCLA this year has a couple 5* recruits, and have had guys like Ben Olson, Marcedes Lewis and that DT from several years ago. Both these school to me, have been "it" schools for wuite some time now.

                          I would have to say clemson; when they landed DaQuan Bowers i was very impressed. The thing that surprised is they were able to take a lot of players that were predicted to go to other schools like Jamie Harper and Antoine McClain, but didn't really have any players verbally commit to them and wind up with another team; this is of course, as considering there are too many players to keep track of so I have no idea if anyone did that to them.

                            I think if Maryland ever replaced Fridge with Locksley, they'd be huge. Ton of talent in that area, most of it gets away.

                              It's gonna be Bama. Also no offense Fl. St. fans but im continually suprised that they can keep bringing in the classes they have been. Especially offensively since 2003 they have had like 3 offensive players drafted in the first two rounds.

                                Illinois aside though, I think Clemson, Missouri, UNC, Oregon, and South Florida will become "IT" schools. They have everything perfect for them in those places. Great campuses, great women, rising programs, everything. Of the powers, I think ND, Alabama, FSU, Michigan, Miami, and maybe Nebraska will be back. All won't be back to their formers selves, but most of them will and at the least the ones that don't will be a factor in the MNC at least every 3 years or so.
