The main insider at scout, who is rarely wrong if ever, said it will be tOSU. All due respect to Wiltfong and his sources but I don't buy it.

Comment 27 Mar 2015

There's very few people you should pay attention to on the CB ....like you can seriously count them on one hand. Even then those few aren't right all the time and I can't think of a bigger stretch for a flip the George Hill unless something happens off the field. 

Comment 27 Mar 2015

On Bredeson he has better relationship with the Wisconsin staff plus he's from there and his brother plays baseball at scUM. 

Comment 26 Mar 2015

You need to give up on Kraemer not gonna happen and it's been said as much. Bredeson is not happening either and unless Craig-Myers visits nothing to see there. We will end up with anywhere from 7-11 top 100 kids and that should be the standard moving forward.

Can't win them all give me Wallace all day!

Comment 22 Mar 2015

305 great write up! I would agree with the 4 DE and Bosa as well as King being the next and last two. While DT is going to be hard to predict there is one kid, Malik Barrow (top 100 on Rivals), that we are recruiting as a DT he's currently 6'3 265-270 right now (same as Michael Bennett in HS) that I believe will be one of the next commits. He is visiting for the spring game and many expect him to pull the trigger soon after for us. Another kid, Kyree Campbell, seems to be a mystery guy that LJ coached his relative and some sites have as being 6'5 300 right now who has had us as his leader. Another possibility is Chris Daniel DT from TX at 6'4 290 and was hoping for an offer from us. I would have Barrow as one DT with the other being a crap shoot at this point. I would say DB is the only position that hasn't provided a lot of clarity thus far though three possible guys are Patrice Rene, Jared Mayden, and Damar Hamlin. Another kid Givler from Rivals said needs being watched closer is Nygel Edmonds 4* from TN so that could be a possibility. Either way great write up and def not showing you up just trying to add to yours keep up the great work big guy!

Comment 10 Mar 2015

Really as simple as watching his tape at G or DT and then watch the other kids' tapes we offered for both positions and you'll get your reason why we aren't pushing. Kids his size should dominate not be another number out there.

Comment 21 Feb 2015

I can see the Gordon references but not sure how I haven't seen any comparisons to a larger version of Jamal Charles with his ability to side cut make himself small and not lose acceleration.

Comment 07 Feb 2015

By all account he is a great coach but his calling card is recruiting as a recruiting ace. More specifically his recruiting in the State of Florida is his specialty this only helps us going forward to have him and Zach Smith down there. This is a home run hire in every aspect and really should alleviate any and all concerns regarding Kareem Walker. Just a big-time pickup and kudos to Urbz for making it happen fast.

Comment 05 Feb 2015

Tony Alford and Vince Marrow are two I'm sure will be on a lot of speculation lists. Important to note before anyone freaks about Kareem Walker his recruiter is Warinner and the person whom he committed to.

Comment 02 Feb 2015

QB: Jarrett Guarantano

RB: Kareem Walker

Pivot/H-back: George Hill, Demario McCall

WR: Austin Mack, Justin Layne, Donnie Corley

TE: Jake Hausman, Luke Farrell

OL: Tyler Gerald, Liam Eichenberg, Prince Sammons

DE: Nick Bosa, Austin Robertson, Terrell Hall

DT: Rashan Gary, Kyree Campbell, Micahel Owenwu

LB:  Brendan Ferns, Johnathan Cooper (prob plays hybrid role though)

DB: Jared Mayden, Wayne Davis

ATH: Kierre Hawkins

Best Guesses as of now but with this staff guessing at this point is a crapshoot. Also, I know people are saying they hope we hang on to Walker, but his coach has a school policy of once you commit that's it plus Walker is on record stating staying loyal is most important to him.

Comment 02 Feb 2015

The latest update from Doug Kimmel is that the family was completely blown away on the visit so that would be in line with that USC article from reign of Troy. 

Comment 01 Feb 2015

From what I've read there is no indication that he is going to serve a Mormon mission and is something I'm sure would have been brought up in the tons of articles by recruiting sites by now. Also, it's premium info so I can't copy and paste but Doug Kimmel from scout who covers the Utah region, was a former Utah recruiter, is closer to this situation than almost anyone, had a very favorable update. Long story short he received texts from Porter's coach with Porter stating how amazing his visit has been so far.

Comment 27 Jan 2015

Alex at 247 just CB'd him to the good guys FYI

Edit: Saturday you beat me to it buddy

Comment 27 Jan 2015

OL Brandon Bowen is from Utah and prob overlooked amongst the OL commits we do have so like you said not entirely impossible. I just think this might be the Urban special and he doesn't lose many kids he takes over the recruitment for.

Comment 06 Jan 2015

Visits the weekend after Beckner too which will help them see where they're at on that front. 

Comment 04 Jan 2015

Barton Simmons from 247 switched his pick to the U this morning after overhearing his family telling Lawrence they did not want him going to Bama.

Comment 27 Nov 2014

From both Birm's article and other sites looks like the bananas should be warmed up for Jurkovic. Also read that Josh King for 2016 was one to keep an eye on. Not sure how much truth there is to that but I would put the over under for commits at 2.5.
