I can't apologize for Iowa's recruiting success.

Lewis is very likely to receive an offer from OSU on his visit, and both Poggi and his dad claim offers from Ohio State.

I will consult rivals before buckeyeplanet, thanks.

Rival's offer database sucks. Always wrong.

lol at Iowa and recruiting success being in the same sentence. But then again, I guess it's all relative. A top 30 class for you guys is considered success.

If you want false info, then by all means, go ahead. It seems to correlate well with your previous history.

Did Michael Schofield sign his LOI to Iowa yet? That's another one you "felt good" about.

You act as if the only reason he's considering us is because everyone is pushing him here. He's been a Miami lean from the beginning. You do realize Gideon Ajagbe is the only player from Miami Dade County that UF has gotten since Dorian Monroe in 2005.

Not to mention, we didn't recruit Ajagbe and to most people down here he was seen as a reach by your guys in an effort to finally get your foot in the door anywhere in Miami Dade County.

I seriously doubt your gonna come pull a player with that we are recruiting very hard, who is being pushed to Miami and has friends and ex teammates at Miami.

We have yet to hear a single person say to worry about Lemonier and most insist he's really pretty much done to us.

Where did I say that? I'm saying the reasons he's not as open to Florida is because of that, it's pushing him away from UF and to Miami. That's obviously not the only reason. You seem to act like Miami is in a position of power right now and that because they want a guy he's Miami's.

And nowhere have I doubted he's a Miami lean. Just because he really likes UF doesn't mean he can't like Miami. I just had a hard time believing he's actually a soft verbal.

PSU OL recruiting is really confusing this year. We don't seem to be really going after anyone hard. Betancourt either lost interest or we slowed pursuit, Graham still only has a verbal offer and a poster that gives off the vibe of being a family member is pretty aggressive/pushy on the scout boards when it comes to Graham/PSU. I'm hoping we can get in on K. Kolb since we've offered but I don't know much about this VA OLineman.
His father is a coach a Fork Union Military Acadamy (FUMA), one of the best prep schools in the nation. The highschool players don't play on the post-grad team, though.

His teammate Russell Bodine, an interior lineman (G or C), may commit to us as well.

This upcoming season FUMA has Mark Shuman and Russell Bodine on the offensive line and Nick Acree on the defensive line. Talk about talent!

That's another reason I'm so sure about Acree, he changed schools so he can play the best every day. Should help him and the rest of the team get better. Not to mention recruit Bodine for us.

http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2009...nd-picks-usc//
The nation’s top high school tight end has committed to play football at Southern California.

Bishop Gorman senior-to-be Xavier Grimble, who is rated by recruiting Web site Rivals.com as the nation’s top tight end, said Thursday he picked Southern California over Florida and Oklahoma.

“I liked everything about USC, especially that it was so close to home,” Grimble said.

The 6-foot-6, 250-pound Grimble is the third Gorman player to commit to the Pac-10 this month. Linebacker Evan Palelei and defensive end Alex Turner each committed to Stanford two weeks ago.

Grimble, who is ranked as the No. 39 overall prospect over by Rivals, caught 13 passes for 308 yards and two touchdowns in 2008. He recorded a 40-yard dash time of 4.7 seconds with a 30-inch vertical.

Grimble initially planned to announce his plans during an interview on the local Fox Sports Radio affiliate Friday.

“Everyone knows I’m going to USC,” he said after Gorman’s offseason workout Thursday.

Grimble will be the second Las Vegan at USC. Palo Verde senior defensive back Torin Harris signed with the Trojans in February.

Grimble, who had nearly 20 scholarship offers, can’t sign until February 2010. His commitment is non-binding.

Happens to be true when it comes to Miami-Dade County.

Despite having 2 NCs, numerous 1st rounders, Heisman winners and tons of media coverage, you still haven't pulled a kid from down here since 2005. Not 1. That's going on 5 years. Why would I expect that to change now?

Our Scout guy did a study on Randy Shannons recruiting classes. I don't remember the exact number but he looked up every kid from Miami Dade County that has been offered by us and compared it to how many we actually landed. The success rate was over 90 percent.

If the kid was from Broward or Palm Beach then Id agree with you. But we are talking about a kid from Miami-Dade County. We've only had 2 of them not sign with us that we have offered (Webster and Luiget) and Luiget had some different circumstances.

Point is that for whatever reason, kids from Miami-Dade County are about as close as you can get to a lock to sign with us if we are seriously after them.

To tell you the truth, I hate that site. Full of diots, homers, and bandwagoners. I like getting info from there and that's it. I think you'll enjoy posting here a whole lot more.

These would appear to be the PSU visitors this weekend, prolly subject to change...maybe some show unexpectedly, others that were expected don't show at all...who knows.

MD WR Adrian Coxson
PA ATH Brendon Felder
PA DT Sharrif Floyd
CT LB Khairi Fortt
MD ATH Josh Furman
CT ATH Christon Gill
PA OL Luke Graham
NJ TE Kevin Haplea
CT RB Silas Redd
PA DE/OLB Dakota Royer
PA QB Paul Jones ("COMMIT")
PA LB Mike Hull (COMMIT)
VA OL Khamrone Kolb

Many members of the '09 class are expected as well, particularly Eric Shrive who hasn't been at all shy about stepping in with '09/'10 kids and talking to them about PSU. Many are expecting 2 (maybe 3) commitments within a week after the B-W game...our guy 'guaranteed' two but doesn't know if it will specifically happen at the B/W game or not.

Just seen a report talking about Lynden Trail's USC offer. Writers says the USC news and UF talk is just smokescreening an fun for the kid. That's he'll all Miami. Which is the way I've felt all along. He's going out of his way to seem open so that he can get offers like USC and go visit. If he says he's going to Miami, he might never get that USC offer and miss a chance to travel there.

Sean Tapley should commit to us any day now. Bout time we landed a CB. This should further cement Louis Nix. No way I see him going anywhere else now.

Corey Lemonier = Cane
Lynden Trail = Cane if we want him, but we are recruiting him at TE, I think if you give him a chance to develop, he'll be a helluva DE.
Louis Nix = Cane, but needs to get the grades up a bit.
T-Glenn = Cane, Hurtt hooked'em good after he heard about the accident.

Ajagbe, we never recruited him anyway. It is like calling Frankie T a loss to USC, we didn't recruit him. Ajagbe isn't our type of player anyway.

I agree on Trail. He shows nice aggression and sets the edge well for a popsicle stick. He hustles in pursuit and plays to the whistle. He has great intangibles for a basketball player that's new to the position. I want him at DE.

Just watching and listening to Trail in interviews...it's obvious he's looking for attention and drama in his recruiting. I've been with you all along on that one Joey...he knows where he's gonna end up.

Sean Tapley....care to explain? What do you think of him?

Tapley is next in line for me to see tape of. Haven't seen him yet.

But I do like his size/speed and relationship with other recruits.

As they receive attention, 2 things happen (potentially):

- increase in internet scouting ranking
- increase in name recognition (also a result of above)

Why not draw interest in your recruiting process so more people know about you. It can only help down the road. Bryce Brown and Terrelle Pryor are way ahead of the game as far as being household names in sport.

So was Willie Williams.

Recruiting hype means nothing. You can try to build it all you want but the bottom line is that the only way to make yourself a household name is to do it on the field.

Nothing is an overstatement. When Terrelle Pryor is eligible for the draft many people will go "oh that's that top recruit that waited to sign with OSU". It helps to have that recognition and past in your favor before you sign your 1st contract.

It's funny that you bring up Willie Williams because we've had a handful of threads asking about him because he was a top recruit and told those stories in the newspaper. He might not be a household name but he obviously has drawn a bit more interest than an average scrub that gets kicked out of 2/3 schools and ends up absolutely nowehere. Like I said...it helps. It's not the whole package, but it's a boost, so why not.
