Recruiting has been slow, so I was looking up some highlights on the 2015 recruits and I came up with a wish list below.  Name your top 5 wish list recruits.  Put them in order of who you want the most.

1. Torrance Gibson (I think he would also be a great recruiter)

2. Damien Harris

3. Justin Hilliard

4. Christian Kirk

5. Tim Settle

I see nothing wrong with your picks, I too think Torrance would work some magic and land another guy

Don't forget Ben Edwards plays for Trinity,they have 2 players (Holland and Tolliver) that can straight up ball

I agree, but I like what we got the last 2 years at CB and I would rather have an Ohio guy over Holland.

I believe the SEC players put their pants on one leg at a time like we do.

Ya, Hilliard or Holland will do

Kirk though is turning into my favorite recruit, very well spoken, just seems like an all around mature player...and versatile as all hell

Are we actively recruiting? Most other teams have some recruiting action and not a lame 3 commits. We are a elite program I do not think that we are beginning as one this year. Any thoughts?

I agree its been slow for now. I hope to land a couple big names like TG, Harris and Kirk and they will help recruit for us....

That'll happen when you start the cycle recruiting the elite players. They won't commit early, want to be wined and dined first,don't worry its still really really early. Once one big name commits (Gibson or Kirk) the rest will fall in place

Silly me for thinking people would wait until April or May to complain about recruiting.

We do always finish strong, But make no mistake recruits look at these rankings as well.

Recruiting rankings in March. Ask M*chigan how that worked out for the '14 class. Heck, even Kentucky had a higher ranking around this time last year.

are you seriously whining already...

we're trying to land elite prospects from out of state mostly...you don't pull that off in 1-2 months.

Nope, Urban told his staff to take an extra long vacation this year.

I feel good about where we are. We are in the lead for a ton of elite talent. The problem is much of that talent isn't going to announce 'til after the season. I really want to get Jerome Baker and Justin Hilliard from in-state. Out-of-state, nothing would make me happier than Damien Harris and Torrance Gibson; elite talent! Looking at our needs, we didn't take any DT or TE last year and need some depth at those positions. Christian Wilkins plays both of those positions. I'd love to see a 300 lbs TE catch a few balls.

Never worried about rankings this early in the process. Some of those guys will flip to other schools as well. If we're in June, and only have 3 commits, then I'll start to worry.

As far as top five go, give me Gibson, Harris, Baker,Kirk, and Hentges(because we really need a good TE in this class).

I always get a little nervous about recruiting, it's so unpredictable.

lol....you guys are seriously worried already? You guys are in the running for plenty of solid talent. You will land your prospects and finish in the top 2 in the conference (either you or PSU will finish first). So relax. Remember who your coach is.

I just want every recruit, that's my hope for this cycle, that we get every recruit above a 1 star in the country.

Do they rate 1 stars?

The 2nd star is a typo.
