    Miami landed 2 players, a 3* LB and a 5* big signing for us as he was our #2 on our board, and 9 of the 10 teams on his list were user teams. Use up that time suckas

    I really didn't bother going after some of the big guys who had everyone on their list save for a few. I signed a guard, insta sign. I believe he was the #4 rated guard in the country.

    A lot of the five-star players really suck ass. It's disappointing to see that, I mean none of the Top 8 highest-rated guys on the list that like us are better than a 3-star guy I could sign.

    I think we all got spoiled with NCAA 2009........I mean I don't nearly see the monsters that I saw in that game.

    I lot of the guys I recruit are solid players that I am hoping for the best. I think I have 1 guy on my board that is going to be a star IMO.

    The rest all are dependent on potential.

    For Example...2 years ago Helli pointed out a WR (Ellis) that I missed. 3 star....well I reshirted him and he is now my #4 WR rated at 85 Overall. I practiced with him last night and he maybe moving up the depth chart faster then some of my seniors would want to see....they guy is a potential nightmare to smaller DB's. He reminds me of a quicker more athletic Logan Thomas at WR.

    I disagree JMS, i see lots of solid players. Last years class was an exception. There werent that many game breakers imo.

    This years class has a ton of top flight talent. The disturbing trend I see is that the game tends to stack certain positions from season to season, leaving other spots with a bunch of depth, bench type talent.

    The other thing is I have real trouble landing certain positions. It seems every year the same type / position players are interested in playing at UT.

    I tend to interpret that as a step in the direction of realism. Just like some draft classes in the NFL are better than others, I'm sure there are years where recruiters in college football don't think there's much out there in terms of talent. I like the system, I just don't like that Tennessee has all the speed. (n)

    Didnt bama and you land the two fastest from the last class Mr. B? I didnt land any elite speed last season.

    I do have to say my WR core is pretty damn special, we should be able to throw the ball this season.

    We also have some decent not elite speed in our secondary.

    It was necessary for us to land some speed at CB. That said we are not nearly where we need to keep up with Mr. Usain Bolt and his band of Merry men.

    Week 2 sees Clemson get bitten with the shitty Purple Diamond Flue. Some bogus JUCO MLB who has C speed and no talent. :(

    A lot of good signings recently.......no talk.

    I signed a 4 star MLB....very happy as he seems very solid. I think it is important to always have a solid MLB.

    A lot of good battles. I see UNC and LSU are on my tail for one of the fastest HBs in the class. I brought him in for a visit vs Ohio State....I think he should be happy!

    So what week are you guys going to be bringing in your recruits? Looking at schedules I think week 5 will be a big one, too bad Clemson best week to invite is week 6. We will be fiesting on all the left overs though.
