i know tim posted today about some guys like demetrius hart with 2010 recruiting coming to a close, but are there any players that we are going after hard or really like us besides depriest and hart?
good luck with that
in state Wide Reciever Highly talented most likely a 4*
Justice Hayes I believe his name is. He's a scatback out of Grand Blanc, MI. Also DeAnthony Arnett is a good WR that I don't know where he's from.
only one i heard of was deanthony, i think hes from saginaw.
You're right. He's from Saginaw.
Guys to keep an eye on thus far:
RB - Justice Hayes
RB - Demetrius Hart
WR - DeAnthony Arnett
WR - Kris Frost
TE - Brian Miller
OL - Anthony Zettel
DT - Donte Phillips
DE - Brian Mihalik
LB - Trey DePriest
CB - Doran Grant
CB - Eilar Hardy
CB - Delonte Holowell
S - LaQuentin Smith
S - HaSean Clinton-Dix
S - Ron Tanner
I really hope we keep that South Florida recruiting going. I haven't seen any Pahokee kids on the board yet but there are a few names I've seen from the area that we're targeting for 2011:
WR - Kelvin Benjamin (Glades Central)
DE - Bryant Dubose (Northeast)
WR - Tacoi Sumler (Gulliver Prep)
Future UFR says...
"Forcier chucks the ball to Tacoi Pants"
Right now it's possible we'll take as few as half the number of commits we'll take in the current class, so if recruiting news seems slower, that's probably a factor.
By the time transfers + 5 year players not getting 'ships plays out, I believe we'll be at 20 next year.
Assuming Smith transfers, Cissoko doesn't come back and we sign a full 29 we currently have room for 12, one more if you add Steve Watson, the only legitimate candidate to not be offered a fifth year.
I have a feeling DeAnthony Arnett is going to be a big battle. Even though he likes the in-state schools, I fear schools from the far west and far south will definitely come calling for his services.
That Arnett is high on Michigan and Oklahoma.
Scout.com list the following players as being offered for 2011:
CB Delonte Hollowell
CB Greg Brown
CB Doran Grant
DE Chris Rock
DE Jalen Grimble
DE Jadeveon Clowney
DT Tim Jernigan
DT Vincent Croce
MLB Lawrence Thomas
OLB Trey DePriest
OT Christian Westerman
QB Braxton Miller
QB Christian LeMay
RB Demetrius Hart
S Karlos Williams
S Ron Tanner
S LaQuentin Smith
TE Brian Miller
WR Dondi Kirby
WR DeAnthony Arnett
WR Jarvis Landry
Among those is Greg Brown, who is already a verbal commit to Michigan.
Most of those players are destined to end up somewhere else, but it does provide an indication of players deemed exceptionally talented.
Nice to see a strong focus on D this early in the process (even though it's probably more about the player than the position)
Can't go wrong with those.
I'm beginning to think we've found the most recent em0 incarnation.
But then I realized I didn’t post 35 different recruiting Depth charts in those threads.
Henry Winkler is the latest em0 account.
Justice Hayes does not have an offer.
Lupe Fiasco: +1 for pointing out that Henry Winkler is the new k06em01 account. I've been thinking that myself for the past couple days.
There are currently 13 seniors scheduled to graduate after the 2010 season. That means that we would have at the very least 13 scholarships to give (unless any fourth year seniors would redshirt for illness or injury).
Assuming no attrition between now and signing day, if we take 29 players this year we would be able to give 5th years to seven current redshirt juniors. So that would be seven 5th year seniors plus
8 - Rogers
9 - Webb
10 - Sagesse
11 - Evans
12 - Woolfolk
FWIW these would be the players eligible for 5th years next year:
1 - Hemingway
2 - Huyge
3 - Molk
4 - Van Bergen
5 - Watson
6 - Williams
All but Watson are at least quasi starters and should see their way back barring unforeseen circumstance.
I know we've offered a few high end DT's for the 2011 class, but overall how's DT rankings looking across the board for 2011...in particular NT, is it another down year per say for DT's as others have eluded to in regards to the 2010 class?
Edited double post
I think it's probably a bit early to determine whether the 2011 DT class is strong or not. I'm guessing nobody really knows for sure at this point.
