***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.


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.

  • #2
    Penn State

    QB: Tate Forcier
    RB: Tavon Austin
    WR: Jaleel Clark/ Justin Brown
    OL: Mark Arcidiacono/ Ty Howle/ Nate Cadogan/ Josh Hadel(if offered)
    DL: Jordan Hill(if offered)/ Sean Stanley(I am sure hoping)
    LB: Dan Mason/ Glenn Carson
    DB: Malcolm Willis/ Jordan Love/ Darrell Givens/ Stephen Obeng-Agyapong

    Ath: Curtis Drake (could play db, wr,qb)/ Craig Crawford(will commit if given an offer)/ Derrick Thomas

    Players I want:

    LB/RB Jelani Jenkins: If academics is really a big part of his decision, Penn State would be a great fit for him. Would play right away as a true frosh, or a RS frosh

    WR Je'Ron Stokes: He commited to Tenn, but I am hoping he revokes it after a good season by us and joins us.

    DE Deonte' Arnett: Him and Stanley would be studs on our dline

    What is yours?

      really want jelani jenkins---know hes visiting in the summer

      prob expect more verbals after our camp in june

      our insiders feel 90% of our class could be filled after the camp

      we have at least 20 schollies, but they think we'll have closer to 25 after transfers, etc

        Some TE (Reid Fragel maybe?)

        I don't think we'll take more than 25 though. Maybe we sneak in 27 and spread out the eligibility.

            1.) Bryce Brown (5*) RB
            2.) Ruben Randle (5*) WR or NuKeese Richardson (4*)
            3.) Olivier Vernon (4*) DE
            4.) Luther Robinson (4*) DT/OG
            5.) Antwan Lowery (4*) DT
            6.) Billy Sanders (NR/should be 3*) TE/DE
            7.) Michael Carter (4*) CB
            8.) Brandon McGee (4*) CB (he's ours keylime)
            9.) Tevin McCaskill (4*) S
            10.) Lamar Miller (4*) RB
            11.) Orson Charles (4*) TE
            12.) A.J. Highsmith (NR/Should be 3*) ATH
            13.) Deron Dye (4*) DE
            14.) Riley Spencer (NR/Should be a 3*) OT
            15.) Jamal Reid (NR/Should be a 3*) CB
            16.) Logan Thomas (4*) TE
            17.) Anthony Steen (NR/Should be a 2*) OT
            18.) Jon Bostic (4*) LB
            19.) Rantavous Wooten (NR/Should be 4*) WR

            That's 19 which is the number we are said to be targeting at this point. The only ones on this list that have yet to recieve offers are Logan Thomas and NuKeese Richardson but both seem to be pretty big Miami fans that we are slow playing and will get in on heavier as things start taking shape later. We'll see how it plays out.

              What are you talking about? He's been to just about all our camps this summer, he comes on campus all the time just to chill with the other players, he's great with the coaches and we've already offered him a scholarship. If we didn't really want him, we would not have offered him at all, much less this early in the process. Outside of Lamar Miller, he's probably the 1 kid that has yet to commit that Miami feels most confident about that will end up in our class.

                  I'll be shocked if Rhodes ends up anywhere but FSU.

                      I doubt Jelani or Love go to Notre Dame.

                        *=Already committed

                        QB- Russell Shepard*
                        QB- Chris Garrett*
                        HB- Mike Ford*
                        HB- Dexter Pratt (I love him)*
                        HB- Trent Richardson or maybe Christine Michael/Eddie Lacy
                        WR- Kenny Bell
                        WR- Reuben Randle
                        WR- Andre DuBose or maybe Kraig Appleton (not sure if we take three, but its possible if either one wants to commit)
                        OL- Josh Downs* (listed at DT but I think he'll play Center)
                        OL- Chris Faulk
                        OL- Carneal Ainsworth
                        OL- Possibly Xavier Sua Filo
                        OL- Henry Orelus*
                        DE- Michael Brockers*
                        DT- Chris Davenport
                        DT- Darrington Sentimore or JaMarkus McFarland
                        LB- Kevin Minter*
                        LB- Willie Ferrell*
                        LB- Tahj Jones
                        LB- Barkevious Mingo
                        LB- John Bostic/Chris Williams. We're taking 4 for sure, maybe 5
                        CB- Janzen Jackson
                        CB- Drayton Calhoun

                        Those are the guys I'm thinking we have a legit shot at right now. We'll end up with 20-23 scholarships this year, so I'm thinking this class is going to fill out rather nicely.

                          Why would that be? Love camped at ND and was said that he would commit on the spot if given an offer. Jenkins is definitely more of a reach.

                            Where did you see that Love would commit "on the spot" if given an offer? From what I read, Wake and Penn State are his favorites. He just got offers from Georgia and Florida and I would assume he would favor those two as well.

                              There were 3 people who told the staff they would verbal on the spot if offered early in the year, Jake Golic was one of them.

                              The Irish staff will be visiting Love this month and will probably give Love an offer, we'll see what he does after.
