Thanks! Missed that one

OSU and ND both with 10 currently in top 150
Michigan, Alabama, USC, and Florida all with 9
You guys should enjoy the fact that Morris is now #127

Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!

Did he lose a star as well? I see only four stars.

He didn't show well at the Under Armour game. But part of that has to do with his layoff from mono. He has all the raw tools, Borges just needs to mold him. If he can, then the Big Ten is in trouble.

Everyone except for OSU... Urban is building a monsterous defense.  I don't see Shane Morris being able to pick them apart...  brady joke is staying with the old style of B1G football that has gotten the conference embarassed over the past 5-7 years.  Urban is changing things to model what wins championships.  A pocket passer will have trouble against a speedy OSU defense.

The old style of football that saban n bama r dominating football with? That old style?

stark county football

Yeah the same style that they were embarrassed at home by

I enjoy it but I enjoy more that we have 9 players ranked higher than him. I will say I'm slightly annoyed to see him one spot higher than the Abusement Park

Weird recruiting fact, but I believe that OSU and USC are the only 2 schools to have their home state's top player in 2013 as well as the top player from two other states (Missouri, New Jersey for us...Tennessee, Washington for USC)

Hard for anyone to continue to tout Morris. Seeing is believing and he may have a decent arm and does play QB. A work in progress with the emphasis on work, a lot of work.

Yeah, but if the TSUN manages to get the medical redshirt for Devin Garnder then Morris might not have to start for at least 2 more years. Right now, Morris is almost guaranteed to redshirt next year barring any injuries for them.

I know these rankings are a crock, but how can one service have Mitchell at 24 (rivals) and the other have him at 124 (espn)......Apple wasnt even in the top 100 for rivals and he is 11 on espn?......Crazy...I guess these guys are like the weatherman....

In my opinion I'd say that Rivals has Mitchell ranked a tad bit high, and that Apple is a Top 50 recruit.

Mitchell proved on live TV at a combine that is designed to judge the very qualities that make football players good that he was the best of the best.  Maybe some scouts don't like his coverage reads or his first step.  That to me is complete noise.  He is playing high school football where being able to coach well is not always part of the job description.  There are tangibles and there are intangibles.  Both are obviously needed to make a decision about how good or bad someone is.  Some recruiting services, like ESPN, tend to give too much credence to the intangible side of the equation.  I think at the end of the day facts usually prevail.

i think leon mcquay III looks like hes 35.
we have 10, possibly 11 guys in their top 150.... not too bad. 

I like football

Always amazed at how different these lists are when comparing this one to Scout/Rivals/247. 

vacuuming sucks

How in the hell did Indiana get a 4 star guy?

"Because I couldn't go for 3"

I'm surprised Marshall is lower than Conley.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
