Based on Rivals formula (http://footballrecruiting.rivals.com/content.asp?SID=880&CID=1364602 ) for team rankings, the commits of Dawson (142 pts. on Rivals formula) and Hill (105 pts.) will bring our current point total to 2757, giving us 26 more points than current first place USC at 2731 points!

Although this lead may be temporary with many other teams having commits on their way, I'd say it's a nice spot to be in with guys like Green (216 pts.), McQuay (211 pts.), and many others still looking hard at Michigan.

I don't believe Michigan is/was ever a very serious player for McQuay.  I think that until somewhat recently it was a Vanderbilt/USC battle.  However, I would not at all be suprised now if he ended up at FSU.

1.) It is in-state and there are many people around LM3 that would like to see him stay closer to home.

2.) While it hasn't been very widely reported, he was extremely impressed with his official visit to FSU.

3.) While FSU losing DC/DB Coach Mark Stoops to the Head Coaching job at Kentucky set FSU back in their recruitment of McQuay, the persistent rumor is that FSU will be hiring Alabama DB Coach Jeremy Pruitt.  Saban considers Pruitt a future star in the industry and he's one of the top 5 assistant coach recruiters in the United States.

4.) There has not been a lot of contact between McQuay and the Michigan coaching staff recently.

Mcquay took an official and unofficial to Michigan.  Recruits that are not interested usually don't spend their own money to take a trip to a school.

His father, who is dealing with his recruitment, has said that Vandy, USC and Michigan are in his top 3.
