I think Robinson is Florida's to lose. I have heard Michigan mentioned though, which is more than you could say a couple years back.

Ricardo Miller appears to be a Michigan lock. Dr. Phillips produced Ryan Moore though, so be careful ;)

Ricardo Miller is a bust I can tell you that now. No one good comes out of Orlando. No one. Think Joe Joseph and Ryan Moore. You better hope you pass on him. I can't think of the last good player to come from there.

Marvin Robinson should be a solid 4 star but he'll be a tough pull from the Gators.

Either way, no one we care about. Bigger fish to fry.

Sure one out of state recruit visited USC in 08, he said that he would love to meet Eve when he was in la... Bang he meets her in some club and then he finishes his visit and commits to an SEC team.

The best recruiter is Butch Davis and it isn't even close.

He is the man who brought Miami from 5-6 in the late 90s to 20 first round picks in the early 2000s.

He basically recruited the mid 2000s Pro Bowl roster.

From wikipedia:
Ray Lewis (LB), Yatil Green (WR), Kenard Lang (DE), Kenny Holmes (DE), Duane Starks (CB), Edgerrin James (RB), Bubba Franks (TE), Dan Morgan (LB), Damione Lewis (DT), Santana Moss (WR), Reggie Wayne (WR), Bryant McKinnie (OT), Jeremy Shockey (TE), Phillip Buchanon (CB), Ed Reed (S), Mike Rumph (CB), Andre Johnson (WR), Jerome McDougle (DE), Willis McGahee (RB), William Joseph (DT), Sean Taylor (S), Kellen Winslow II (TE), Jonathan Vilma (LB), D.J. Williams (LB), Vernon Carey (OT), Vince Wilfork (DT), Antrel Rolle (CB), and Kelly Jennings (CB)[2]

I think all the recruits are/were some what overrated. Like they said on college football live... sometimes recruits gain an extra star etc. simply because they were being recruited by usc.

EDIT: I just wish he was able to bring in Manti Teo and Vontaze Burfadict (sp?)

Programs like Miami and USC don't need great recruiters. They just need competent coaches who can win, and don't scare recruits away.


Think about this for a second.... If you were 18 years old, and were offered a scholarship to a school right by hollywood, the beach, year-round warm weather, in addition to a high opportunity of playing in a national championship game with a nfl career in the future, would you take that?


The point is... these programs sell themselves. There really isn't a lot you have to do to recruit a guy to usc...

Not really. In case you haven't noticed, Miami has sucked since 2004. They are improving a lot and still can't get the top players from their own state.

Notice how only a couple of the top 25 are even considering Miami.

well, historically, miami has been a recruiting powerhouse. Coker was the equivalent of watching paint dry in the coolness factor, so he sort of drove recruits away. Add in the fact that there are 3 other big schools in the state jockeying for position and it makes it a bit tougher to recruit. Regardless, you guys get the point. Schools like Miami and USC have a natural advantage in recruiting. if they can't recruit, they have nobody to blame but themselves..
