I think the pick is Ohio State and the Urban Meyer visit tomorrow night will solidify it.
Smith is an early enrollee.
Yup.. Martell, Myers, Wade, Young, Browning, Davis, Dobbins, Lindsey and Garrett.
Moretti will also be there, as will Tufele, Holmes, Akers and Bolden.
Been saying it sounds like a silent commit may have happened but silent commits mean nothing right now. Have to recruit him hard for the next two months.
Does Wisconsin get in over Michigan if Clemson loses?
That's what Dobbins said he would do, but it would be too late if Akers committed at the all star game, since they both are early enrollees. Now Dobbins could push back his enrollment, but I don't believe he will do that. I think the staff has sold him on being used multiple ways even if they get Akers.
They are, all of the focus right now is on Akers, Okudah, Browning, Wade and Smith since they are early enrollees. They are going in home with Akers next week before the dead period.
It's not a slam dunk to LSU like some think. Akers has a great relationship with Meyer and Alford, their challenge is having to sell his Mom and Grandma on him going so far from home.
Akers pushed back his commitment date leading some to believe that Ole Miss wouldn't be the pick, why not announce at a Mississippi all star game if you were staying in state? Some are suggesting that he will announce at the Army bowl on Saturday, January 7th, so that he could be on that college campus the following Monday without having to deal with Ole Miss fans. Well today, he was a no show to his scheduled Ole Miss official visit.
I think it's safe to say that this is down to LSU and Ohio State. Most believ, that if it were closer, Ohio State would be the choice. But right now LSU has the upper hand.
Akers, Lingard and White are top 10 players in their class for a reason, because they are elite players. I think it's okay to predict greatness from them, since that's what every coach who are recruiting them predicts as well.
By the way, I was comparing them to Cook, Fournette and Elliot out of high school. Since I assumed that the original poster was asking me how were they comparable to Weber out of high school.
Yeah it was funny reading the Ole Miss 247 board and seeing them believe they had a real shot.
This is between Ohio State and Tennessee with Bama being a dark horse.
There's a lot of smoke that Price will go pro and Samuel is coming back. I would go...
Offense: Barrett, Samuel, Jones
Defense: Hill, Worley, Hubbard, Lewis
I would have Akers, Lingard, White and Dobbins ahead of Weber coming out of high school. Dobbins is a short, powerful back like Weber, but Dobbins has better breakaway speed and more wiggle than Weber possessed. White is just a freak, guy is 220 pounds running a 10.6 in the 100m, I would put him on the same level as Leonard Fournette. Akers reminds me of Dalvin Cook, but I think he will be a bigger back than Cook is. He's extremely fast, legit 4.4 speed, very shifty, great vision, deceptively strong. Lingard is only 180 pounds but runs much bigger than he is, he's capable of being a power back but still possess break away speed. Watching his film, you can see he rarely, if ever gets caught from behind.
They want two RBs in this class, they would love to have Snead and Lingard. I just don't see Snead sticking around if Lingard commits, that's my opinion.
It's a premium thread, you wont be able to read it unless you subscribe. But his reasoning was that, Akers is the Zeke Elliot type who has the frame to be 225 and keep his elite speed. Same with Lingard and White but from what he has seen in person, Akers is the better back. He said Dobbins is shorter than everyone else but has a strong lower body and breakaway speed. Just not the frame to get to that 225 pound mark, in his opinion. Williams and Snead are more in the power back mold, who don't have the breakaway speed that Akers, White, Lingard and Dobbins have.

Givler over on Rivals was asked to compare 2016/2017/2018 Ohio State rb commits and targets. He said he would have it as 1. Akers 2. White/Lingard 3. Dobbins 4. Snead 5. Antonio Williams, but he needs to see more of White in person.

Wilson is not going to Ohio State. Let the dust settle. LSU or A&M. My money is on those two getting his final pair of official visits.
That "let the dust settle" part might just mean that Wilson did silently commit to Ohio State but there's still a long way to go.
Werner has an official visit set for the 9th-11th, Wiltfong expects him to commit on his visit. Also, based on his Senior film, Wiltfong said he's a top 100, top 247 top player. Expect a big rankings jump during 247 next rankings update.
Holland says he will have more detail on his crystal ball pick in his recruiting feature later today, he cant say too much right now. Sounds like a silent commit to me, probably... Don't want to get anyones hopes up, just what it sounds like to me.
Wiltfong spoke to a source at Wilson's school who says there may be something to that crystal ball pick. But he still expects Wilson to stay down South when it's all said and done. LSU or maybe even Texas A&M.
