|2 days 10 hours ago||When I'm||
bored at work, I usually go through what I think might happen with lineups one day. Here's how I think the secondary plays out. Peppers commits on Sunday. This fall, Raymon Taylor and Blake Countess play CB while Jarrod Wilson and Thomas Gordon play safety with Dymonte Thomas holding down the nickel. Courtney Avery is the top DB off the bench.
Then next season, Thomas slides into a safety spot, replacing Gordon. Peppers fills into the spot vacated by Thomas. Wilson, Countess, and Taylor remain in their spots.
Then in 2015, Peppers moves to a CB spot, replacing Taylor. One of the current players then moves into the nickel spot. Maybe Richardson or Ross Douglas takes that spot. Either that, or Peppers remains a nickel and someone else moves into the CB lineup. Lot's of good options for the future though, that's for sure. I'm excited about the secondarys future.

Thoughts exactly. I'm expecting them to go hard after the California kids. But as far as just in-state kids, I wanted to let the other poster know some like malzone more. Campbell has gotten all the hype, but I still expect him to be in the 3 star range. I think its clear hoke is going to shoot for a blue chip kid first tho.

Is an in-state 2015 qb that a lot like more than Jayru actually. His name is Alex Malzone. He's out of brother rice
|4 days 4 hours ago||Well to be fair||
the kids in this years class are going to have a minimal impact at best in the ND-M series. They will appear in one game and most of them will be redshirting. Also, it's an early season game, so even the kids who don't redshirt are barely going to play much in that game. As of this cycle, I'm past the point of caring about who Notre Dame lands other than in head-to-head battles. A shame though. I enjoyed the Notre Dame rivalry much more than MSU.
|4 days 4 hours ago||I know||
this is kind of unrelated, but I might as well give the heads up here. 247 is coming out with its initial er...247 rankings...for the 2015 class tomorrow.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Oh how||
I wish my sarcasm meter worked still. But many a time over the years it has indicated sarcasm only to be thrown off by the many who are completely serious about the things they say.
|4 days 7 hours ago||why||
Exactly would the school they go to affect their ranking?

Makes me sick to watch this. Tonight would be a great night to donate to people who need money more desperately than we might.

That camera cut around to Michael standing in the doorway, I almost lost it. His return was so perfect. He was kept to a minimum, but you still knew he was there. And he had to be. Andy's line about the good old days was incredible. And the final scene, cutting away from Pam talking to show an ordinary building full of extraordinary characters was just the perfect finish for me. I loved every second of this episode.

How close are we to your annual countdown
|1 week 2 days ago||i hope||
He's started off good enough for you. 19-7, beat all 3 rivals, bcs bowl win...

Ace is just too chicken to include notre dame in the rankings
|1 week 3 days ago||congrats||
This comment just went platinum in the hip hop community

He is just cutting the kid so he can oversign. /boom rcmb'd

By "knew" I mean they probably have a general idea on who is and isn't leaving the program and they probably had a pretty good idea Ringer was contemplating leaving. Anything beyond that isn't something we would ever be aware of
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I think they would||
take Ballage or Hilliman, but without either of them, maybe they don't. If Smith redshirts, that essentially puts him in this class, one year away from Derrick Green. And considering the prospects they are in on for 2015, they could survive that.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Agree||
that's why i used composite in my best guess list post. It's also the first one I look up when we get new commits now.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||A quick||
aside from 2014 recruiting, but do you think McCray sticks at SAM?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||A good point||
and it's quite possible their pursuit of Watson and Winovich means they knew about Ringer well in advance.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||aww||
poor Ian Bunting :(
|2 weeks 4 days ago||To be honest||
Jabrill is probably good enough to play anywhere in the secondary. We could even play him 2 ways and have a package where he gets the ball. Have you seen his highlights? He can catch and has great change of direction when he runs.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||That rating||
has always been kind of curious to me too. I always figured he was in the 300-350 range until I actually checked.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Probably a safe bet||
The only reason I listed 3 instead of 2 is because I felt like all those DB's were too much to ask for. I did clarify 2 LB's as a possibility in my comments, however. A best player left situation does seem likely, as you said.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I could have went||
a little less rosy and guessed we steal Marshall from MSU but don't get Hand. Even less rosy, we only get McDowell out of the remaining DL targets. But I don't know who else we'd even be targeting, and this is my guess list as of today. So i just went with all the most realistic options that I hoped to get. Obviously I doubt we land ALL of those kids that I guessed on. But I wouldn't be surprised at any one individual I listed coming here either.
And you're right, this is fun. Recruiting is fun as long as we don't freak out every time we don't get someone (Treadwell, Levenberry, Frost, ect.) There will always be others!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I don't remember||
exactly what I read, but I'm pretty sure it was something I read from Steve on the 247 board. Could have been one of the VIP posters too. I know he visited and seemed to like it, just that it's probably not that serious of an interest. His profile lists Notre Dame and TCU as "warmer" fwiw
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I tend to||
agree with you on Winovich not coming here. I just needed a SAM backer to put on my list.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Great prospect||
but there is probably very little chance of that happening. The mutual interest just doesn't appear to be there.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||That's||
not what it means, at least NIMO

the best sports schools in Ohio. St. Ed's is also the alma mater of current WWE star Dolph Ziggler. He held the school pin record.
The school is also sending Ohio's Division 1 state champ at 182 pounds to Michigan to wrestle. Domenic Abounader went 36-0 for St. Ed's last season in winning his title. He is the #1 ranked recruit in the nation at this weight and a top 10 (I believe), overall. Interestingly, despite how highly touted he is, he's only the 3rd best wrestling recruit coming in behind Adam Coon (Fowlerville, 4x champ) and Ben Whitford (St. John's, 4x champ).

For you, Brian. Would you mind including the composite ranking from 247 at the top of these, along with the other 4?
