    Nebraska nabs one off the bat.

    :4stars:T(#14) CHAD MANNING, 6'6", 272lbs, Riverdale, UT
    KEY RATINGS- B+ ACCEL/ B- RUN BLOCK STRENGTH, PASS BLOCK STRENGTH/ C+ RUN BLOCK FOOTWORK, PASS BLOCK FOOTWORK, RUN BLOCK
    ---Manning comes in highly regarded as a run blocking tackle. He's very tall and profiles more to us as a RT. Manning has to get stronger in order to compete with these monsters in the Big 10 but we figure we have plenty of time to develop this kid.

    Penn State Signs 2

    :4stars:TE Larry Taylor - 6'4 241 - He is a receiving TE with poor blocking skills. We love them!

    :4stars:SS Jerome Hunt - 6'1 196 - Average SS that could see some time in a few years if we dotn sign anyone better

    We really need some CBs but we are not seeing much out there that we may be able to sign. :( I am trying to grab a nice FS and change him over to CB.

    Its good that they have 5+ guys every year that would make Sean Taylor look like a scrub so that the rosters are realistic...

    I am really surprised no teams went for Ian Hunter. IMO he is the best kid on my board....seems like a beast. I might put his ass at CB.....should be a shut down corner at 6'4.

    TCU is not even going after him.....I am questioning my self now.

    It also appears that UGA is looking to build a WALL or monsters on that OLINE. Every Guard and tackle I want he is #1 on....fuck you!

    Is that the #1 FS? I thought that TCU had like a 500 point lead on you...

    We are signing a BEESTLY tackle this year. In fact our class is looking pretty stout at the moment. Only one signing and (as always) he was the guy I was least interested in... But looking at the positive side, it's nice not to have to put major time into players I don't care about.

    No he is your favorite type....an Athlete.:rolleyes:

    Jesse Rhodes is the FS the TCU is kicking my ass for....I am giving it one more week and praying for a X2.

    How is it going on that speedy WR? I gave him 10 minutes and he didn't sign.... So I kicked him to the curb. I think if you're #1 or whatever people aren't going to fight you too often. I don't think Penn State has a single non A+ pitch. Especially on athletes, where you can't hammer them for not needing the guy.

    Even against me, people don't fight that much anymore. Mogriff is one exception, we are fighting for a few guys, but he already dropped off a MLB I was after...

    I got a 1000+ point call last week....good choice dropping him. He will be a lion. I find it rare to instsign guys of that caliber.

    Luke is more athletic.....it is just the height of hunter at CB is appealing to me....even though in reality I am not sure how much of an impact it has.

    That WR?

    Well here is the guy I'm hyped about with this class, so big/athletic/strong/aware... First really good T we have signed, we have gotten serviceable guys but he is on another level. Tackles have sucked every year really... Hard to get them.

    #2 T William Cooke - 6'6" 295
    C- SPD, B+ STR, C AWR, B- PBK, C+ RBK, C+ PBS, B- PBF, C+ RBF, C+ RBS, C IBL


    We are also looking good on two good DT's

    Nice. I think the fact that I hadn't yet offered him a scholarship helps me a little, I think I had a 600+ point call, and the points do not translate perfectly (for instance, let's say you got a 1,000 point call... You won't gain 400 points, you'll gain something along the lines of 200 or something. Also, promises and offers give you a greater percentage of "actual" points. My prediction is you won't jump me. Let's see what happens!!!

    I fell behind on some guys, I trimmed my list a bit, especially the MLB we were going after because I have a MLB on board, that I have as #1 and trying to battle you would be useless, especially since like I said, I fell behind on a few guys. I got some X2 on guys I want BAD :) looking to close the deal on those 3 big time in the next two weeks.
