in town for free camps
Just did it. Oh, there's this by the way. What about that vaunted MSU class?
PSU gained another borderline top-100 DL, which has bumped them up to the top 10 in the recruiting rankings, at number 9 overall... which makes them 4th in the B1G East. I posted something about this a few weeks ago, but I thought that on a slow news day I'd go back to the well for a minor update.
Honestly, I'm just reaching for a thread to push the wallaby thread down. I woke up to that at 7am, so it's the slowest day on the boards that I can remember.
As of today 4 of the top 13 recruiting classes are from the B1G East. To be fair, another 4 are from the SEC West. But the B1G East have the players and the coaches to sit at the big boy table now. As much as I hate endorsing MSU and OSU, we have 2 BCS winners from last year, including the National Champs. We have two of the top three coaches in all of college football. Pretty spectacular that Dantonio is the third best coach in the division. We have the horses. It's time for the changing of the guards.
Buckeye commit Tyler Green was in Ann Arbor yesterday with some teammates for the UM Football camp.
He decided it would be good to wear all OSU gear and throw up the "O" on the field.
Love the guts to do this, but also can't wait for Canteen to blow right by him for a TD!!
Some of the comments are funny too:
Based on what is on Rivals I am surprised OSU made him an offer. 3 star rating, mid level Rival ranking and he isn't nationally ranked. For the position he actually is on the small side. His stats are nothing special. I didn't see anything spectacular in his film.
The guys over at Corn Nation, the Nebraska blog for SB-Nation, made a map showing where every single FBS recruit from 2002-2014 has come from.
Here's a still of it:
The interactive version is here. It's pretty fun to play around with. You can see, during coaching changes, where each coach emphasized.
If you want, they also made a 2014 Big Ten version
According to TomVH on twitter Malik McDowell has yet to sign and send in his LOI. It's been publicized that Malik wants to attend to MSU (and announced State during a ceremony this morning) but his parents (specifically his mother) don't think that MSU is the best place for him. Tom's latest tweet (@TomVH)
"There is definite drama with the Malik McDowell situation. HS coach doesn't know ehn he'll send it (sic) in letter of intent"
I'm a bit torn here. There's obviously something going on with this young man and his family that involves a huge life choice. However, possible SPARTY NO on NSD just after star rankings started to matter?
