According to a tweet by UMGoBlog Powe decided to drop by for the Notre dame Game
I guess WR will be the next spot taken, interesting hmmm
Mmm, I feel well-loved.
There's a massive spread in his rankings.
Espn has him in their U150 and the 13th ranked WR and scout has him as their 84th ranked receiver. But he is by far the best WR we're in on based on his film, smooth as hell.
It sounds like Payton got his 4 stars by campaigning, although I'm not sure on Powe yet.
Powe has offers from Nebraska, Oregon, Cal, Stanford, and schools like that. He's lacking any absolute tier 1 offers, but has several good offers.
Payton's offers are from Florida, Notre Dame, Penn State, USC, LSU, Oklahoma, etc... Many of these same schools recruited Powe, but declined to offer him.
Darboh's offers are almost as good as Payton's. He's got Florida and Notre Dame, but doesn't have quite the same depth (LSU, Oklahoma, as well as USC, Penn State depending on what you think of those two).
I dunno how effective campaigning for a 4th star is with Rivals/Scout, but I'm gonna assume that schools aren't quite as ammenable to it. Payton looks "legit" from this, although if you're someone who can evaluate film, I see no reason not to go with Darboh if choosing between the two of em. Everyone looks great on film to me, so I can only go off stuff like this.
Seems overrated. High ranking is due to the fact that he's started 4 years for a talent rich High School.
I think offers are a great way to compare similar prospects.
If he's been starting for a talent rich high school for four years, wouldn't that indicate he's good?
He has an offer from ND, at least according to 247. Also has a Miami offer. Don't worry too much. He's a pretty good prospect, and someone you should be excited about. He has the most break away speed, and thus a deep threat, of all the WR prospects we have a legitamate shot at. He would pair nicley with a Darboh or Payton who strike me more as possesion receivers. Also Powe was part of the Gridiorn Kings 7-on-7 (the one Shane Morris was at), and was a "stock-up" kind of guy.
If anybody is still looking for a ticket, I'm selling one in section 20(first 20 rows).

Who is all visiting for the Notre Dame game?
Yuri Wright, Joshua Garnett, Erik Magnuson, Zach Banner?
As well as tons of commits, Jordan Payton (I don't know if you implied he was or not), Brionte Dunn, Dymonte Thomas, probably some other 2013 kids.
I'm not certain that Wright's going to be in town that week.
I read that he's visiting for the Notre Dame game.
I'll check, see if I can find out for sure.
Mitch McGary. He should be the tallest one on the sidelines, so easy to spot.
McGary is visiting for Western Michigan, not Notre Dame.
Is O'Brien's potential visit official or unofficial?
This unrelenting obsession with the weekend plans of high school kids you know nothing about. Tools.
Strong indications that Darboh could commit on or after his visit this weekend so that would leave only one spot open at WR between Powe and Payton - I'll tbe happy with either one.
Darboh no longer plans to visit this weekend-he posted that on twitter
Powe wants to Go Blue, I can feel it.
Powe is likely legit. He doesn't have the mega-offers like USC or Bama, but he's a west coast kid with offers from the rest of the top Pac-12 teams (Oregon, Washington, Stanford, UCLA, Cal, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon State and Utah) not to mention Nebraska as well. He's probably not a Belitnikoff winner, but if we got him along with Darboh, I'd be extremely happy about that pull.
Powe, Darboh, Payton, Madaris and Chesson all sound great. I would be thrilled if we got any 2 out of that group. Are there any other highly sought after recruits that we have a real chance to get?
