I'm an Ignatius grad from '05 & pay attention to the football team & D1 grads pretty closely (ie Dan Fox @ ND & Jake Ryan @ TSUN). Berger is in the mold of Ryan, but may be less instinctive. The Wildcats have 3 D1 prospects in that junior class, headlines by Byrne, but the guy I want Urban to scout/recruit more is Dameon Willis Jr. He's a safety/lb hybrid who brings it. Mean streak kind of player.

I hope Urban can lock up kids at my high school because they have a tendency to end up at Notre Dame or M!ch!g@n.

How about Mario Manningham vs. Anthony Gonzalez going 1 v. 1 for 4 quarters, essentially both sides of the ball, during 2003 as Warren Harding took on St. Ignatius. Now that was a fun match-up to watch!!

To add a little to the conversation & perhaps assert the seemingly inevitable switch of Dodson to the Bucks. ESPN insider states that Wisconsin has recently offered a 3* OT Jake Meador, who now has the Badgers in his top 3 (ESPN excerpt @ end). Are the Badgers covering their bases with the impending loss of Dodson!?!

 

"Three-star offensive tackle Jake Meador (Whiteland, Ind./Whiteland) recently had a final three of Florida, Indiana and Missouri.

He still has a final three, except a new team resides in Indiana's place.

Meador texted ESPN.com that Wisconsin, which offered on Sunday, is now in his top three, replacing Indiana. Meador will officially visit Wisconsin this weekend, his fifth and final official visit.

He also finalized a signing day announcement between the Badgers, Gators and Tigers.

Originally committed to Ole Miss, Meador reopened his commitment when Houston Nutt was fired as the Rebels' coach." ~ESPN

new member & glad to be a part of this awesome resource.

I want to mention that although I'm uber excited, like most everyone, about Urban's immediate impact in recruiting nationally, it's not like the previous guy we had stunk at recruiting. Tressel had more players drafted into the nfl than any other college team (2001-2010), so he was no slouch. & Tress did well nationally too, see Cam Heyward, Malcolm Jenkins, Laurinitis, and Santonio Holmes, just from the top of my head. & yes, Tress did miss on major targets (Seantrel Henderson, Jordan Hicks, Trey DePriest), but he was no slouch, is my point. 

While I agree that Urban is much more aggressive and is bearing fruit immediately, we won't really know what these players amount to be until they actually suit up in those beautiful scarlet unis.
