If I recall all of our guys except for 2 dropped on their rankings. And I'm not the only one as our very own Andrew Lind was opposed as to how, yet again, our commits were ranked.
Apparently you missed the fact that was a joke about us yankees just like I missed the sarcasm font but I'll not make a smartass comment. Also if there's no alleged conspiracy how do you explain the Wyatt Davis vs Jamaree Salyer argument. Unless I missed something I know Davis won the player of the year....in the state of California...as an OL which was never done before. Did Salyer win player of the year in Georgia? Davis also embarrassed guys in the all star game. I watched Salyer and he was good but not pancaking guys like Davis did. Yet Salyer is #8 overall in their rankings and a 5*. Meanwhile Davis dropped into 4* status last year in their final rankings. And the argument I read on here from someone's post was that Wiltfong and Co. Said it was bc he was a guard and they use their rankings with the NFL draft as a barometer. Yet there's been multiple first round guards over the last 10 years which is becoming common place. And that's just 1 example...but I'm done arguing you want to respond go ahead get your rocks off....
Supposedly taking his official visit this weekend.
At my job I am. My point was sometimes I work a ton and will miss details that aren't work related. Hence why there's no need for the response I received to my post. There's also the fact that there's people on here who might not know the info I posted about 247 and its founder.
To add to the above post about 4* CA WR Chris Olave. Both Givler and BG are hearing there's smoke about us getting him. BG also thinks we still get JJB and thinks we lead for Walker. Called NPF a real possibility but have to see if the official on Feb 2 takes place and from there it's game on.
Yeah that's my bad. I'm currently at home making preparations for a global meeting agenda tomorrow while working out a 2018 budget over $1 million. It's been a long day so I'm sorry my serious answer has inconvenienced you enough to follow up with an unnecessary smartass answer of your own. Thanks bud :)
It was founded and operated by a Bama alum. It's not hard to figure out. Every cycle our commits will start high in the rankings. Then as the real NSD approaches they slide them down the rankings bc they're still mad that us yankees won the war. So they take it out on us and move $EC commits and undecided kids up the rankings to draw page clicks and make sure they win the recruiting title. Wash, rinse, repeat...
IMO if he leaves the it's simple you give full reigns of the offense to Wilson if you haven't already. You then bring Kenny Guitan home to be the QB coach. He's already a good recruiter (been recruiting in Texas for a few years now) and he knows the Urban offense better than most.
It's Saturday he's still on his visit. We won't know or hear anything until tomorrow at the earliest.
Nothing like seeing the Gipper using a Buckeye cheerleading horn thingy
Just as important as landing Friday are the high schools we've taken kids from this year:
- Armwood HS (Snead),
- IMG Academy (Vincent)
- Owasso HS (Proctor)
- Bishop Sullivan HS (Teradja)
- Trinity Christian HS (Johnson)
- Lake Travis HS (Baldwin)
- Don Bosco Prep (Friday)
Maintaining/establishing relationships go a long way in helping land future kids from these regional powerhouses.
Will still never understand why they approved the fake one to be less than 2 months before the real one. When it was first proposed I figured they'd do it like in college basketball.
I definitely want to close with Friday, JJB, and Walker. Anything after that is the cherry on top although selfishly I want to land NPF too.
Hopefully everybody has their Boom gifs ready for tomorrow bc it's Friday
IMO no JJB is a WDE all the way. Oats is a LB all the way. Didn't think he'd end up in this class but can definitely cross off Solo now.
According to Bill Greene, Chris Oats will take his official on Feb 2. If the visit takes place he's in the class and his grades have cleared up.
And you're apparently not much smarter than thinking that's what it all amounts too when making that decision as a staff. So agree to disagree then...
Bc just like in any or most science subjects there's elements of unpredictability especially with early draft entries, injuries (known or unforeseen), and the psychological effects for all parties involved with transfers. I'm sorry you don't see it that way and think it's just hey we don't need you anymore which isn't what happens with our staff. There's more to it than that. Then you add to that the biggest wildcard and that's with kids whose light bulb doesn't come on till they're a senior or 3rd year player. We've been over 85 in the spring and if you don't think there's an element of science in deciding who you want moving forward with all those factors and figuring out future depth charts than I don't know what to tell you...
There's a difference between forcing a kid out and being honest with them abut future playing time and then helping them find a spot that better suits them. Our staff does the latter.
Yeah but IMO unless it's at WR or another position that's not RB I wouldn't get hopes up.
Yeah I don't understand the people that worry about numbers. Under Urban they will take nearly 25 guys each year bc guys who can't play after 2-3 years aren't kept on the roster anymore. Getting to 85 can be a science but our staff have a masters in it.
Per Alan Trieu of Scout, Urban is visiting UA Game MVP Maurice Washington next week.
Also wanted to add when Sheridan and Teradja played American Heritage this year there were some people who thought Sheridan was the best DB on the field that night. That includes Surtain and Campbell.
Not 2018 related and posted in the 2019 thread but VA DB Sheridan Jones reclassified from the 2020 class to the 2019 class. Teammate of Teradja and now the #1 DB on my board for next cycle. Kid is a freaking stud!
