|4 years 31 weeks ago||i wouldnt worry about atm with his recruitment||
not only do they have 15 recruits already, they took back their offer to LB peter jinkens(one of the reasons why he committed to texas so early) and jinkens was probably higher up on their board. unless texas pulls off a miracld and drags tim cole away from atm, i imagine their recruiting at the LB position is done.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||oh hey another texas fan on here, hi =)||
i think hes a bit too slow to be a LB so im in the he'll-be-a-DE group. to be honest hes only really on the UT board(kind of) because hes current UT reggie wilson's cousin.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||where did you hear that peter jinkens wasn't expecting||
a texas offer? hes an athletic freak and is probably #1 on our board. unless u include kwon alexander(sec) or derek david(academics) on the texas board, which i dont for either.
|4 years 32 weeks ago||texas?||
wanna explain? beause i would certainly put half-our-defense-is-suspended-for-the-year UNC above texas.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||i dont believe||
i dont believe myers is on the texas radar at the moment. i wouldnt be too worried about texas getting in on his recruitment unless some of our other targets fall through. so you should have a very good shot at landing him
|4 years 33 weeks ago||i agree and disagree||
i agree that you dont have a pipeline to Chapparel. 2 players does not a pipeline make. i disagree when you say that pipelines are overrated. let me give you an example: Brenham HS in texas last year(2011) pumped out DE brandon alexander. he ended up going to texas atm over texas because atm was recruiting him for a much longer time. in the 2012 class brenham has 4 D1 prospects. two of them committed to texas atm a few weeks ago(troy green and adrian bellard). the other two are very high on texas's list: DT Malcom Brown and LB Tim Cole. brown is considered to be a atm lean because atm has started to build a pipeline at brenham. i think the problem with pipelines for michigan fans is that there arent a lot of high schools that produce D1 talent on a consistent basis every year. plus its hard to have an out of state pipeline. theyre definitely worth it IMO, atm is reaping the benefits. everyone can.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||i think nebraska's numbers are a bit skewed in that||
they dont really want the top 10 players in nebraska because #10 probably isnt good enough to play at nebraska. which is why some(if any) would leave the state.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||eh||
texas tech QBs disagree with your last statemennt.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||lol||
texas offered 31 players and got 22 commitments(71%). very nice estimate, much respect. and to be honest no one can really confirm whether david jenkins(LSU) was offered or not. point 3 is the most important to me because its so effective when used properly. however, hitting on your main targets is extremely important or youre left trying to make up ground on other recruits that have been getting recruited by other schools for awhile while you pursued option A.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||his older||
his older sister is on the swim team at texas. Also, Harsin(new OC for texas, ex boise state OC) helped install the boise state offense at Chaparral HS and recruited brewer while at BSU.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||his||
his(dixon) recruitment and lache seastrunk's were so confusing
|4 years 49 weeks ago||change:||
clay burton de-committed from ND and committed to florida.
|5 years 5 weeks ago||honestly||
freaking out about herbie picking uconn over michigan? lots of people are taking uconn. lots of people are taking michigan. get over it please. id love to see any one of you(no offense) try to be unbiased about michigan. hes obviously going to be biased towards ohio state. but picking uconn over michigan? thats probably going to be one of the most competitive games this week. honestly it can go either way. dont worry about people picking against you. it doesnt help uconn play any better.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||my #1 sleeper this year||
is malcom floyd. if vincent jackson doesnt sign(and all indications point to him either sitting a year out or being traded) then the chargers #1 receiver will be malcom floyd. allll those passes that would make vincent jackson a 2nd-3rd round pick go to floyd.
also, after selecting a QB ive tried to fill my final WR slot with a WR from the same team. so far ive managed to get flacco - boldin, rivers - floyd+gates, kolb - jackson, manning - garcon this year. hopefully it works pretty well for me this year. im mostly worried about flacco - boldin because of ray rice's efficiency both catching the ball and close to the endzone. but hopefully boldin gets some jump balls thrown his way. id also try to pick TEs according to QBs. ive tried to do thsi but failed miserably outside of my rivers/gates. i was trying to get kolb - celek and manning - clark but celek was picked one before me and clark was picked insanely early(it was my first draft of the year).
|5 years 6 weeks ago||lol||
lets see him play in a meaningful game against a #1 defense before everyone starts drinking the cruz kool-aid
|5 years 7 weeks ago||well||
he just graduated from high school. yes. is he ready to step onto the field as a freshman and contribute in b10 games? well, if i had to pick a high school division to pick players from and had to field a football team made entirely of freshmen it would definitely be 5A football in texas. highest level of competition you can find.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||rivals||
is redoing their top 100 and 250, itll probably be released on tuesday per bartonsimmons twitter. so, jernigan might move up. he was working out with the slot receivers at a camp(i remember reading the tweet, forgot which camp), the dudes got some crazy agility/footwork
|5 years 8 weeks ago||zettel||
is going to be a DE, not a OG. he seems pretty set on it too.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||wait wait wait wait wait||
no no no. jadeveon clowney is the #1 overall prospect. no debate about it. that being said, james wilder is a physical freak and has muscles on his muscles.
oh and you can basically cross georgia off his list, its a FSU/UF battle. he mentioned FSU's assistant coach's ability to get RBs in the NFL, which kind of makes me think hes going FSU. before that comment i thought he was 100000% UF.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||well coaching change||
for texas would be losing DC will muschamp to some (probably SEC) school as a HC. hes currently the HCIW. im not worried about wen mack retires. i dont think mack is worried about wen mack retires. we're set for awhile(i hope).
oh and its on irish =)
|5 years 9 weeks ago||OR||
their rankings deflate because rivals/scout get more readers from more schools if they have highly ranked UNCOMMITTED kids. lots of texas kids commit early and lose their opportunity to move into the 5* range because rivals/scout dont want committed kids where only one fanbase will read about them highly ranked. much more profitable to have uncommitted kids who take until NSD highly ranked so you have people from multiple schools checking the same prospect for updates on his commitment status. it goes both ways basically.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||id generally agree||
with your analysis. the midfield didnt do a very good job helping out on defense but yes, the same problem that plagued the national team is killing the MLS all star team.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||nice catch||
it was supposed to be a joke but apparently i was dead wrong. my mistake. honestly though, who would have guessed that colorado state has a pipeline to florida...weird. i had no idea.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||holy shit gibson||
wat a FK....jesus that was unstoppable. fantastic strike.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||yes!||
so excited as a man utd fan to see javier hernandez play. he made me actually root for mexico.
nice goal ching, should have made the US team to be honest
|5 years 10 weeks ago||"how sure are we that hart is seriously..||
1. dee hart is seriously considering michigan
2. michigan state would never let a felon play on their football team.
one of them is a lie.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||would have||
been nice to see javier hernandez play. hopefully fergy puts him in for the whole 2nd half.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||its MLS||
all stars vs Man Us guys who hardly ever see the field.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||comment on the game:||
ttech commit QB brewer STARES down his receiver. watch him, he doesnt really go through his progression.
EDIT: oh and how did Ja'Juan Story end up on southwest? hes from florida. and quandre diggs is(i believe) on southeast. hes from texas. i dont understand that switch
|5 years 10 weeks ago||i dont think||
espn would have allowed him to do that. A) it technically would be recruiting by an alum(?) and B) they want to remain neutral on where recruits can go.
