***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.

    Ok then it's not rivals rankings.

    They never jive with the state sites.

    Rivals has been pumping Seastrunk pretty hardcore and Jeffcoat get minimal talk from them.

    I'll be shocked if Rivals has Jeffcoat higher.

        This is the guy Im really hoping Michigan can land. Beasts from Detroit named William are good to recruit haha.

        Ever since Gholston talked to Robinson at a bball game and learned that we were recruiting him to play LB in our scheme, he has been higher on Michigan. What a monster of a LB he would be, already 6'7 240 at 17.

        Hes got a small list hes working on, to: Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, Illinois, Florida, Miami, Florida State, Alabama, Texas, LSU, USC, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Purdue, Iowa mostly all the Big Ten schools Clemson.

          No, that's called being maxed out. He will barely get bigger or stronger from this point on, and he's showed that he had trouble with leverage. He got past his opponents easily though (using hand moves, his length and speed) and he just seems like he'd be a better fit at DE (IMHO) where he wouldn't have leverage problems and his height would be a bonus (instead of a possible problem). I'm not knocking you, him or VT. I personally think VT is one of the best (top 3) programs that work with the talent they get, and the best special teams unit in the country year in and year out. I think that Acree is a great prospect, but I feel his body and skill set matches a DE better...no need to get testy.
          He was 320 during the high school season, but his workout sessions with Mel Gray before SA took him down to 290. He has a ton of room to work on his technique as he can just toss kids at the high school level (single A). I am interested to see how he progresses as he has the physical tools and seems to have the work ethic needed to succeed. He isn't close to a finished product which is appealing and should lead to a fun 4 years.

            That'd be one hell of a SLB and would definitely help UM's mediocre LB recruiting. For such a big kid, he really moves well.

              One thing I like about Michigan's future at LB, even though we only have 1 recruit in this class considered a LB, we have multiple who may end up playing LB. We have a good 3 prospects with potential to be fast, athletic LB's. Mike Jones, Isiah Bell, & even the Gordons both Cameron and Thomas all have the potential to grow into and play LB.

                I don't think Thomas Gordon can. His frame doesn't seem like it could handle 230-240 pounds. He'll make a nice FS.

                  I agree his frame cant handle that much weight. But a lot of LB's at the college level do play in the 220's. I mean look at Hawthorne, there is absolutely no way he is going to get to 230 yet he is considered a pure LB; even though he is smaller than Gordon and has similar speed.

                  You're right that I doubt T Gordon moves to LB, but it is possible. As far as C Gordon goes, I know he really really wants to play WR. But now that he is at Michigan I don't think it will take our coaches that long to move him to the defensive side of the ball where his potential is the greatest.

                    Gholston looks like a guy who's gonna fill out to 6-7, 270+, I see him at DE or DT in the end. Intriguing prospect, I think MSU has the edge right now, Ohio State hasn't offered yet though.

                      PA, MD, and NJ are going to be good to Penn State this year. We will grab one or two kids from Ohio like we always do, but the three I mentioned will probably do us the most good. I hope we can land MD players Ego Ferguson and Nick Forbes. Both could end up to be high 4 stars and Ferguson could end up being a 5 star.

                        I'm liking that ND is already out to a fast start. We already had Christian Lombard and Daniel Smith on board, and yesterday Chris Martin verballed. Chance Carter is supposed to be making his decision after his trip to Stanford, and ND is out in the lead for him too. And the smoke about grabbing Corey Cooper is nice.

                        There's a lot more needed to fill out the 2010 ND class, but at this point, the only other two recruits I can see ND having an advantage are Anthony Barr and Tai-ler Jones due to family ties to ND. Jones reportedly was in tears when he got his offer on campus at the last Junior Day and almost committed on the spot, but held off. Barr has had ND pushed at him probably since birth by his dad and uncle and ND seems to be leading for him.

                        The must get for Weis this year is Seantrel Henderson, but this will be a fight with half the country. I'm a bit more confident about ND's chances with Henderson than usual. Weis had been all over this kid for quite some time, and he has high interest in ND. But it's a long time until the next signing day.

                          Michigan offered LaTwan Anderson and Tai-ler Jones. Anderson is a DB who runs a legit 4.3 and already has offers from Iowa, Michigan State, and West Virginia. Florida is also talking to him, but he doesn't have an offer. Jones reports a really, really good offer list but looks like Notre Dame's to lose.

                              osu is gonna put together a 3rd straight great class it seems like this year, should be more than 20 signees. Some guys I modestly expect us to sign:

                              JT Moore-DE
                              Jamel Turner-DE/OLB
                              Andrew Norwell-OT
                              Devin Gardner-QB
                              Scott McVey-LB
                              Darryl Baldwin-DE
                              Matt James-OT
                              Spencer Ware-RB
                              Erick Howard-RB (if he busts his butt to pass admissions standards)
                              Alex Smith-TE

                              most of those guys will be at least 4 stars, probably mid-high 4 stars. There's also chances at these guys:

                              Willilam Gholston-DE
                              Ken Wilkins-DE
                              Corey Brown-RB
                              Derrick Bryant-DE (not sure we'll offer)
                              and then there's Jordan Hicks-LB, who is gonna go to Texas and is a total stud I hate to see leave the state.


                              and then of course in 2011 QB Braxton Miller is gonna be the best QB prospect from Ohio in years - better prospect than Justin Zwick and Brady Quinn were.

                                It's funny how these things go in cycles. Seems like every area is extremely strong this year and it's not just early hype - most people knew for awhile that 09 was pretty weak. I am also hearing that New Jersey is the strongest it's possibly ever been.
