that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
Now that the class of 2015 all but completely official, it's time for some news on the current class.
Harbaugh does not sleep. In addition to picking up 5 commits for 2015 in the last 24 hours, Michigan has also offered some 2016 guys today.
Per Magnus' site TTB-
Cuffee is a 3 star CB from Waco, Texas. He does hold a Baylor offer so I assume they are going to be a finalist for him.
Dismuke is a 4 star Safety from Compton. His other 5 offers are from Arizona State, Cal, Colorado State, Mississippi State and San Diego State.
Dismuke is 6'2. I'm liking the recruiting of tall DBs.
CB Iman Marshall to USC, as expected.— Chris Balas (@Balas_Wolverine) February 4, 2015
We jumped 36 spots today to #35 on 247 Composite. Not bad for 14 players and no effective recruiting for 3 months (Oct, Nov, Dec)
Florida the only real comparable jumped 46 spots to #20 today but has 21 recruits. The two 5 stars they landed helped. They had room for another 6 more slots I believe (27 total), we had room for 1 more. They had a coach who at least could sell a future in October and hired new coach first week of December so really only had a 1 month blackout window (November) of recruiting - we had 3.
All in all a victory - was shooting for low 30s with 15-16 commits a month ago; we got to mid 30s with 14.
That's 2 guys in 5 minutes.
Was just reading highlights from the WVU signing day presser. The coach said initial thinking is Ferns will play FB and TE, but they have a year to figure it out.
I found it interesting he was switching to offense, since he as a highly touted LB.
OK - go back to following our recruits, not ones that have left us.
Deontay Burnett accepted a blueshirt offer from USC. Really strange recruitment. I also have a hard time believing a kid with other major scholarship offers would accept a blueshirt from a private school. He is probably going to have to pay at least one semester to one year of private school tuition out of his pocket (assuming the recruitment is not dirty and his family is actually paying for it).
Just when you think the SCerra pipeline can't get stronger, WR Deontay Burnett takes a blueshirt offer from #USC, will count for '16 class— Greg Biggins (@GregBiggins) February 4, 2015
