Of course, not even a scroll mention on ESPNU. haha. Tenn or Auburn would have had Lugz break into regularly scheduled programming to announce. Heck, when LaRue became TA&M's 88th WR commit it was scrolled within minutes. I've seen 3 star kids on the scroll moments after reading it online. Just find it funny, lol.

Very excited about the future with the backfield of Green and Smith. Two bruisers who will leave a trail of arms of would be tacklers on the road to the National Championship. Get your popcorn ready.. Go Blue!

In this class, Ohio is going to fear dying a painful death when their D is going to bleed 6 -8 yards per play. Think Alabama vs Florida in the 2009 SEC championship game.

Rivals still has Poggi listed as a commit so I suspect his visit was on the up and up. And all five articles are about DG, that shows what the commit could mean. Work hard DG, Smith can be a great back as well. You made the right choice. Hello. And Go Blue.

It's pretty amazing how bad UVA and VT are at keeping in state talent in state. The state gets raided year in and year out, This year, 5 of the top 6 guys are going out of state. I can't find previous years' stats but I recall seeing this trend in past years too
