***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.

  • Top 2010 Recruiting Class

    Florida or Texas? Texas or Florida?

  • #2
    If Florida lands either Seantrel Henderson or Christian Green then I'll say them. If they strike out on both, then I'll say Texas.

        Florida will close with Chaz Green (6.0), Adrian Coxson (5.8), and Darrin Kitchens (5.6).

          It's Florida, regardless if they land Henderson or Green. They have one of the best recruiting classes ever, let alone this year.

          The addition of Henderson, Green, Christian Jones or Chaz Green would only make it more of a separation from Texas.

          The Longhorns seem to be the clear cut #2 though, then Auburn

            I'm sick of hyperbole. Everyone wants to call something or someone current "the greatest." Texas has a higher star average than Florida and is one 4-star commit away from jumping ahead of them in the Rivals rankings. Quality over quantity for me. Right now Florida's class isn't even as good as their 2007 class. I don't think any class will ever top USC's 2007 class, despite the Trojans only taking 18 kids that year. USC's 2006 class is probably better than this year's Florida's class as well. Don't even get me started on all the great recruiting classes before Rivals and Scout were started.

              Florida's 2007 class might never be matched in terms of what it produced.

              Harvin, Tebow, Spikes, Cunningham, Johnson, Cooper, Jones, James, Marsh etc.

                The only thing that makes me think they may not have the best recruiting class ever is the fact that 2010 overall is relatively weak. Granted, I think Ronald Powell would have been the #1 HS Recruit within the past two or three years but there is some separation from years like 2007, etc---2010.

                Still, I think when a team can grab talents like Powell, Floyd, Elam, Dowling, Watkins, Dunkley, Riggs, Christian it begs to ask if they have one of the more elite classes in recent memory.

                Granted, I totally agree with you in the fact that they aren't probably the greatest ever because no one can judge the recruits that came in before Rivals.com/Scout.com/ESPNU/Max Preps were all around, but still, a lot of the talent that the Gators have brought in this year have the ability to be All-SEC teammates in the future and possible draft picks.

                I see where your coming from though. I should have explained the Rivals/Scout/ESPNU/MaxPrep aspect.

                Also, think about it from a "Projection Only" Basis, not aftermath.

                  well believe it or not they actually had top 250 lists before the recruiting internet services ranked them like they did starting around 2002....and theyve always had recruiting champs every year. I think when comparing recruiting classes in this day and age you can only compare them to other recruiting classes during the scholarship limit era (they didn't always have the 85 'ship limit and the margin in talent between big schools and midmajors was bigger).

                  Regarding this is the "best class ever" and all that. Bruce Feldman recently had a pretty good article ranking the top 10 recruiting classes of the decade. USC 2003 and OSU 2002 were the top 2. You gotta have insider to see the rest, but I imagine FLorida 2007 is up there considering they had Harvin, Tebow, and Spikes.

                    Also, Texas' average star rating is only .04 higher than Florida and that's only via Rivals.

                      Got to be Florida. They have the most 5-star ranked recruits with 4, more than any other school per Rivals.

                      Actually since we're dealing with unproven players & if you look at he Rivals chart you have to put Florida, Texas, Auburn & Alabama all on the same top shelf for the 2010 class.

                        Powell wouldn't have been the number 1 recruit in 2008. I still believe that Pryor would've been it.

                        But to answer the question, both are really good. I'll go with Florida for right now, but it could switch.
