    Missouri needed several positions filled, and they did a good job of this year in recruiting. The only hole that has yet to be filled is at punter, but the Tigers just moved into 1st place for Jeff Brown the #2 kicker in the country. The first hole to be filled was at SS and Missouri snagged a good one in Marcus Moss.


    DEFENSE

    Marcus Moss

    Moss is a FS in high school but figures to make a switch to SS once he makes it to campus. He has excellent size 6'3" 214 lbs. He has solid, but not excellent, speed but he shines as a tackler. Moss has several big time hits on his highlight reel and should be a great safety in the SEC for several years. Missouri was able to beat out division rival Tennessee for his signature and he may haunt the Volunteers over the next few seasons.

    Moss wasn't the only standout DB the Tigers signed they also added Joey Larson an exceptional CB who may step into the nickel role next season. Missouri also added several LB who should see significant playing time as Missouri makes a switch to a 3-4 defense next season. The Tigers needed to add some athleticism at the position and by adding Matt Grimes and Kyle Joyce they were successful.

    Grimes and Joyce

    Matt Grimes is a :3stars: OLB who will make an excellent pass rush threat on the edge. He has excellent speed for the position even if he lacks ideal size. He does a good job of shedding blocks and causing some havoc in the backfield. He may see the field next season, but he'll have to earn his spot in training camp.

    Kyle Joyce is the #6 OLB and will be played inside once he reaches Columbia. He is a bigger than Grimes, but brings athleticism to the MLB position that Missouri lacked a season ago. He has decent speed but is an excellent defender in zone coverage. He should be exciting to watch grow and develop as a run stuffer. If he can add that dimension to his game he will be an NFL player in a few seasons.

    The Tigers defensive coaches searched far and wide for defensive line prospects and found a few that should play significant minutes next season in DE Prince Moody and DT Terrence Young.

    Moody and Young

    Prince Moody is a DE out of South Gate, MD. He comes in expecting to compete for playing time right out of the gate. He will hit campus close to 240lbs and brings good speed for the DE position. He gets off the ball quickly and his acceleration and speed should help him wreak havoc in the oppositions backfield.

    Terrence Young is a DT out of El Paso, TX who will have an opportunity to play a lot as a true freshman. He is a little undersized but makes up for it with heart and tenacity. He does an excellent job getting off blocks and should do a good job of creating pressure up the middle against the offense. The two freshman could join forces at DE, but the Mizzou staff are still arguing about where to put Young. His pursuit and block shedding, coupled with his size may make him an ideal 3-4 DE but his speed may prevent him from making the switch.

    OFFENSE
    Let's start our look up front with the big uglies.

    Young and Berry

    Howard Young is an exciting prospect at G for Missouri fans. He is the second player from GA to sign with the Tigers as they try to build their 1st pipeline in SEC country. He brings good size to the inside of an offensive line that needed to build some young depth. ESPNU has him rated as the 5th best guard in the country and it was all Missouri could do to wrestle him away from the Florida Gators. He will compete for playing time next season and may be on the 1st unit.

    Lamarr Berry is another guard but he joins Missouri from PA. He isn't as talented as Young is but his raw skills should help him develop into a solid G in the future. He is already an accomplished run blocker but will have to work hard to develop his pass blocking sets as he matures. His 6'5" frame should allow him to add some good weight to his almost 300lbs.

    Missouri is also close to signing mammoth offensive tackle Chris Bennett from Ohio who stands 6'6" and 353lbs. Unfortunately outside of his size he doesn't bring much to the field.

    The skill players bring some needed depth to several positions.


    Mike Adams
    Adams is an unheralded TE prospect who is an exceptional receiver. He isn't the most accomplished blocker but his 6'3" 250lb frame should make him a big target in the passing game and his speed should help create mismatches all over the field. He will be to big for DBs to cover and too fast for LBs to cover.

    Steven Mayo
    Mayo is a :4stars: WR prospect who brings amazing speed to the position. Coach Bulgy would like to get him involved in the offense similarly to the way Dexter McCluster was used at Ole Miss. Mayo should be very dangerous in the passing game after his redshirt year as he builds on his excellent route running ability.

    Kyle Sullivan
    Sullivan is a :4stars: RB from perennial State Title contender Southlake Carroll. He doesn't have good speed, in fact for the RB position he is downright slow, but he makes defensers look foolish and slips a lot of tackles. When he makes defenders miss and gets into the open field he will probably get caught from behind. He will have a little time to develop, but probably not long as Mizzou thins in the backfield considerably after this season.

    PROSPECTIVE SIGNEES TO WATCH FOR
    Player POS OVR SIZE
    1. Mike Davis ATH/WR 79 (+8) 6'4" 223 lbs
    2. Josh Bullock ATH/WR/RB 77(+3) 6' 171 lbs
    3. Jeff Brown K 76(-5) 5'10" 211lbs
    4. Chris Bennett T 62(+2) 6'6" 353 lbs[/color]

    9. Joel Jordan :5stars: 6'4" 204 TN (#1 ATH) #1OVR
    10. Maurice Peters :4stars:5'10" 209 GA (#31 ATH) #167OVR
    11. Adam Clark :4stars:6'4 277 AL (#9 G)
    12. Joseph Price :4stars:6'7 225 WI (#29 ATH)
    13. Jake Darby :3stars:6'1 179 MS (#67 CB)

    Offense:
    The prize possession of this class will be the #1 rated player in the country, Joel Jordan. Standing 6'4 he has the ability to pick a team apart from the pocket but is also a deadly runner that should add another dimension to the Vols playcalling once Tyler Bray has moved on. At the skill positions around Jordan, they have also signed two very skilled athletes. Maurice Peters is a load of a runner and will likely see a permanent role at halfback (although he has skills for the secondary as well). With a 93 truck and a 92 stiff arm with a good blend of explosion, Peters is the future of this backfield. Next is 6'7 225lb Joseph Price who has been primarily a WR at Middleton high school in Wisconsin but the coaches are needing TE depth for next year and if he has the ability to block he may see a move inside.

    The Vols are very young up front but still addressed the position by adding 3 players for next year. The top piece being Aaron Peoples who may see himself playing alot next year and vying for the starting job with the starter graduating. Guard Adam Clark may be the best of the group but will take time to get a little bigger in the weight room and likely will see a redshirt.

    Defense:
    This defense is relatively young up front but come next year they will be graduating 5 seniors so they decided to be proactive and recruit the front heavily. They have received commitments from 4* commits Rob Dortch and John Rhodes with another player (Andre Fields) holding a verbal right now to Tennessee. All three are listed at DE but Dortch is expected to be moved inside because of his 285lb frame and ability to control the line of scrimmage better than the rest. They also received a commitment from JUCO (JR) Ralph Green who could provide some immediate depth next year and is very effective at rushing the passer from the inside.

    They really had no needs anywhere along the defense except at CB and they feel they've addressed that by the signing of Jake Darby who brings good size to the position. He will need to work on his lateral speed before he can compete in the high level conference but he may be thrust into immediate action. The Vols also added 2 very quick LB's who can fill running lanes in a hurry but both are still stiff moving in space and will have to improve there as well.

    PLAYERS TO WATCH:
    Carlos Miller 4* 6'4 188 HI - Solid all around WR who can take his time developing as long as the dynamic duo of Hunter and Rodgers return for their senior seasons.
    Cory Flanagan 1* 6'1 252 RI- A old school fullback that enjoys smacking people in the mouth. May not be as great of a fit once Jordan takes the reigns in more of a spread style offense.
    Chad Smith 4* 6'2 224 SC- He may see a move to FB if they feel he has develops his blocking skills like they expect.
    Brandon Davis 4* 6'2 273 MS- A little undersize for the Vols liking but he is very talented. Battling rival Ole Miss
    Dee Coley 5* 6'3 300 MO- More of the big build road grader they are looking for but has to develop in pass blocking. Battling Florida St.
    Andre Fields 4* 6'3 235 MO- Verbal to Tenn. Very quick player that plays the game intelligently. Will need to improve pass rush technique.
    Mark Clark 4* 5'10 173 TX- His physical style at CB fits the Vols scheme perfectly. Still battling with Oklahoma and BYU.

    You can do that, but this is more for us to get to know the players you think will be immediate impact players or stars a year or 2 down the road.

    Since offseason might isn't til Monday I will give y'all til then to get them up.

    This year team made alot of leaps and bounds it going to be hard to over come the success we have had in Starksville but looking forward to the incoming class there are three recruits i can name that will have a huge success coming in.



    T. Pat Walker

    He has already been rated a Road Grader at tackle he has grate foot work for a 350 pound tackle and the speed to pull if needs be


    CB. Larry ( Chipper ) Jones

    A lock down corner at the left corner position in the SEC you would think of af a power conference ith all these great backs but now with the QB's emerging to the fore front you need some lock down corners that can read and react Jones is that guy


    CB. Hank ( Big Tyme ) Davis

    Labeled a hard hitter he will spit time at right corner or slot corner he has a nack for seeking and destroying anyone who come across the field and looking for any read option QB's




    But overall the whole incoming class is on the up swing and we're looking to compete see you next year

    This looks nice jay2149. I think you've got State on a roll and headed in a good direction. Should be interesting to see the Fighting Cowbells make a move to the top tier.

    Yeah, its not a good sign that you've got 2 more shutdown CB's to develop. I've had a hell of a time throwing against you in our two thrillers we've had so far.

    Right now the Illini have the # 26 recruiting class in the nation. These 4 players are bringing the most buzz to the Champaigne campus.
    #6 WR Matt Anderson/ ***** A balanced playmaker who runs great routes and has sticky hands.

    #104 CB Mike Fields/ *** Recognized as a gem recruit by EA sports, will play immeditely in the secondary.

    #23 WR Josh Mcinley/**** A speedy WR from florida with a knack for making big plays.

    #44 ATH Ron Moore/*** Also selected as a gem recruit from EA. This guys skill rankings are the most balanced scene this year.
    Moore could find himself playing multiple positions this fall.

    Although Coach Goldstein was a late hire in East Lansing he was still able to land a preatty solid recruiting class in minimal time . Lets take a look at some of the top freshman that will be suiting up for the Spartans this season.

    this class was all about depth. with a couple four stars signing i hope that they develop at the standard 4 star rate... much of my hopes for this class was just to help my coach promise rating a bit because i promised all of them no redshirt first year on campus. i hope that my class this year will be much more productive what with being a 4 star program.

    I had something come up at work which takes priority over anything else, I had all intentions of getting this up in time before the deadline but coming home from an out of state wedding to boatload of work was not foreseen. Nevertheless here is my round-up

    There is a changing of the guard in the B1G in regards to the way games are played. Urban Meyer and Brady Hoke have brought speed to the B1G so coach Mason at Iowa has recruited differently than Iowa has in decades. Gone are the days of big linemen on both sides of the ball. Landing Ramond Dailey, the #1 SS in the country will add much speed and hard hitting to an already sick defense. But the biggest recruiting win was Jesse Marshall, the #2 QB in the country who will challenge RS Sophomore Jake Ruddock for the starting position. Big changes are coming in Iowa City.​

    I had no idea your class was that good. That's one hell of an incoming class. It's got me a little nervous about our game in a few weeks.
