Can you please, please start limiting yourself when it comes to these pictures?  Seriously, maybe you're like 13 and you think those are the height of wit and awesomeness, but even if that's the case it would be good practice for you to fit in with older folks.  Someday, when you have a fake ID, that practice could come in handy.

..But you're good. Too good for your own good.

No but seriously, yes, it's Anthony Wallace. Evidently he and "other texans' tried to get up here earlier in the season but it 'didnt work out'. It's nothing definitive, but the staff is trying to get him up here

From the wording of the scout post, it sounded like he was interested in other schools but his dad rushed him. It can't be that hard to recruit him either; Arkansas's already got 2 other TE commits in the class, and he can get almost immediate playing time here. I think we have a great shot with Barnett.

I just remember the comments about where are the defensive recruits earlier that I think everyone was getting annoyed at.  I just hope there is balance.  I am a little worried about the offensive recruiting because we seem to have so many  good recruiters for the defense.  Borges doesn't seem like he is as good as Mattison or Coach Hoke.  I have no idea on Funk and Lou's brother or Hecklinski.  Freddie J is good. 

I know it's still early.  I get paid to be worried.

I'd like to see more.

Right now we only have Miller.  I think we're in good shape to keep Posada and get Bryant.  I actually don't think we're in great shape for Fisher but that could change.

So we need tackles.  I know we've reached out to Flavin, but i wouldn't mind looking at a couple others.  Especially with no lineman from last year as Pace might have suffered a major injury.

It's too bad about Fisher.  Wallace might seem a stretch, but if we get Clark, we will have a lot of LB's.  From the Borges interview, it seems like we have too many players in the offesive skill positions so they can go defensive.  Worried about interior linemen, but there is a good crop next year.

Both MD boys... Barnes is a disappointing casualty of the coaching change.  Down to PSU, UGA, and us, I read he dropped us after RR was fired.  Hard to blame him - their coaches have been on him for months, he knows them.  If Hoke can pull anything off with one in-home, he's yoda-level on the ninja meter.

EDIT: saw your maybes... hopefully Mattison was on the Countess visit, but I didn't think he was coming until tmw.  Would make sense if he joined since he's out there, would have to think he makes an impression

I would be happy if we pulled Cooper in.  I don't think Coach Hoke recruited him before, so just establishing the relationship and Cooper hasn't visited yet.  Would be a miracle job to get someone with no prior contact with Hoke. 

The only reason why I thought Mattison might meet Countess and Cooper was Sam Webb this morning said they wanted to interview Mattison but he was out recruiting and was unavailable for the interview.

christ, how much did all of these recruits hate the 3-3-5?  Zettel's high school coach, Jernigan, Mickey Johnson (unless I read that wrong somewhere), Barnes. 

When recruiting's your lifeblood and your scheme is choking that, it's time to take another look at the scheme.


January 19th, 2011 at 8:07 PM ^

we've heard, but this is still very very good. But I still see recruiting panning out in a 2 or 3 yrs.  Just like this past year, we recruited a good amount of defense, but you don't want all the young freshman having to start and play extensive time.  We really need them to develop

Sometimes it gets hard to follow the threads. Sometimes I wish there was a nesting option or even tree lines you could turn on or off.


And it's a damn shame drake didn't make it in. Would have been nice to have the depth and what seemed like he would have been a solid contributor.
