***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.

    No, he wasn't, but that happens when:

    A) Illinois' depth chart is better than the teams on his list

    B) Priorities change, needs of position change when you see your guys and they're better than expected and going to be stars, and lastly, recruits' position on the board changes when other recruits (Corey Lemonier, Shariff Floyd, Dior Mathis, CJ O the DE from Michigan, etc. etc. etc. start to express interest). Plus you have one guy who's going to be on board (Calvin Smith) so...they're still going to recruit Gaston but stuff changes, and Smith was higher than Gaston on the board from the start (Gaston wasn't even on the board until spring). I personally really like Gaston and think he has the potential to be a BIG time DT. And just FWIW, I don't think that is his final 6.

    C) Finally you have douchebags like Tom Lemming and Taylor Bell going all out against Illinois. CJ F was their little baby and when he committed to Illinois, that set off a firestorm. I just can't wait until the season starts to shut these two up.

      Some Illinois fans are freaking out because Prater said he's moving his decision up and he just visited USC. I don't know how anybody missed it when I told them he might move his decision up (Was this close to deciding in mid July). USC even made Martez think but I'm still going Illinois.

      • Assuming Lemonier commits to Illinois, Smith.

        Gaston wasn't on anyone's board before Spring.

          Yes he was...he just wasn't recruited that much. But as soon as I posted I don't think that is his final 6 I read this from an interview on the ND Scout site:

          My six are Iowa, Purdue, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Illinois,

          I don't know if that's confusion or not? I'm still not high on Gaston to Illinois anymore after recent happenings. I would like to have him if other options fail though. Like I said he could be a really big deal at DT one day.

          • havent payed attention to recuiting lately so can someone update me on the status of lattimore and/or seastrunk to auburn? are they still interested or what ?


            RIP, Sean Taylor.

            • I think they're both showing interest but it'd shock me if either one ended up at Auburn tbh. I think they might get michael dyer but I figure Lattimore will go to South Carolina and the homer in me says Lache ends up at LSU

              Comment


              • Seastrunk said that he is really interested in Auburn, but he's said the same thing about USC, LSU and Texas...Auburn just got a lot more publicity because no one expected it.

                I agree with Tiger Bait on where both will end up...but I wouldn't be surprised to see Lattimore at UNC

                • Well the link I posted was as of today, and the interview in which he left Illinois off was also with someone affiliated with the Fighting Irish media. Now, on that list, Arizona doesn't fit in whereas Illinois makes more sense, but who knows, I'm just going by what the link says, and it could obviously be a missquote/typo. So, if you can link the other article benn, that would help, unless it's premium.

                  I'm starting to think this. Despite some saying Dawson isn't all he's been cracked up to be, I would rather not lose a talented instate kid. But with Rhodes committing, as well as Iowa's high interest in other backs, it might happen. It will especially hurt if he chooses Wisconsin or Nebraska.

                  • I wouldn't be surprised to see Lattimore at Penn State :D

                    • Rhodes didn't have a commitable offer.

                      Comment


                      • Kyle Prater has said that he is set to announce on September 2nd, most likely to USC.

                        Patrick Turner anyone?

                        • I would love to take Andre Dawson off your hands.

                            • Apparently Rhodes didn't commit. He was supposed to announce yesterday with teammates or something, but the media said he committed to the Hawks before he actually did so he's saying he didn't commit. Idk what the big deal is but isn't a verbal as of right now.
