***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.

  • TE Eric MacLain decommits from Tennessee.

    Facts aren't 100%, but apparently MacLain, who is reportedly around 6'5, 270 now, really wants to play TE and not OT. The staff hasn't contacted him since signing day two weeks ago, which has MacLain upset. I believe he still plans on attending UT's junior day though.
    Still Team The Ke$ha!!!

    • Karlos Williams commits to FSU at junior day this morning.


      • Michigan got it's third commit today in MI WR Shawn Conway. He's a relative unknown because he only played in two games his freshman and sophomore years due to transfer. He must have really impressed the staff, considering that we are only going to take one or two receivers in this class. Scouting report sounds promising.


        • LB Steve Edmond commits to Texas


          • auburn is in good shape early on to land the better of prospects from alabama.

            RIP, Sean Taylor.


            • FSU is racking right now early on with 8 commits

              Eric Beverly RB High
              LeMarcus Brutus DB
              Trey Pettis OL
              Keelin Smith DB
              Karlos Williams DB
              Sterling Lovelady OL
              Niles Lawrence-Stample DT
              Derrick Mitchell DT

              I would expect a couple of more at the end of the week after the 2nd Junior Day...I know a lot of fans are hoping for a Ray Drew Commitment DE out of Georgia


              • Iowa has a legitimate shot with DE Aaron Lynch.

                I think we'll be in a situation similar to Nebraska with Owa' last year.


                • Austin Blythe could end up top guard prospect.

                    I believe most of his family is from Ohio and his uncle played at Mount Union. He said he watches OSU every saturday too (who doesnt? :)). Should be an interesting recruitment, but my gut tells me if he goes out of state it would be in Columbus, if he stays in state it would be at Miami.

                    That guys has really blown up though with big offers, I wonder where he ends up in the rivals/scout 100.

                    • DaVaris Daniels likes his Hawks.

                      Did not know the Ohio connection Keylime. Interesting factoid.

                        Basically, you are saying you won't get him?


                        • That's exactly what I'm saying.

                          We'll be top 3 in the end, assuming it drags out that long, and we'll push him on the idea of being the next "Adrian Clayborn". We won't get him, but the national spotlight we'll receive with him should be enough to sway a few other good recruits.

                          Either way, I'm fine with it.

                              Christian French - 6'6 4.37 (Biggest freak in class?)
                              Austin Blythe

                              Brian Bobek (if we offer, this one is puzzling)
                              Derek Farniok
                              Justice Hayes

                              Melvin Gordon

                              French is a relative unkonwn. Son of 6'9 former Hawkeye basketball player Cherokee French. He ran a 4.37 LAST YEAR at 6'6 220. Tape looks good. I suspect he'll be rivals100, possible 5*, just based on measurables alone.


                              • Iowa is sitting 4th at best for Daniels.
