    Bruins pick up a :4stars:Safety and a :3stars:pass blocking Guard in the first 3 weeks of the season. Good start to the recruiting season for UCLA. Board updated.

    Same here for ASU. Sun Devils get a :3stars: QB and a :3stars: WR, both of whom would already be major upgrades at their respective positions.

    Cal is going to really fight off some dogs this yeadr to get the guys they want. Some very interesting battles coming up with Ucla, Stanford, Usc, and freaking Oregon. Texas should be a pipeline next season again, but losing that tag this particular year may hurt quite a bit more than anticipated.

    If the game worked properly yes. If going into this season you had at least four people from a specific state you should have a pipeline in that state. If after two weeks into the season you sign the fourth player from the specific state, then the pipeline will begin next year.

    I don't think you have to worry about my ass. I don't think it is a good sign when he is down to his final five, and we are 4th and 5th respectively.

    Nebraska picks up :4stars: WR #32 Marcus Bennett out of Huron, South Dakota. 6'2 198. This guyis fast and looks like he will see alot of slot duty, and be a short catch specialist, giving him chances to make plays with his feet.

    Arizona St. picked up another :3stars: WR, Dave Ford. Though he doesn't have a high ceiling, he will at least provide much needed depth at the position.

    Another recruit for Arizona State: :3stars: FS Larry Larson. Larry has good speed, but is not great in coverage. He will be red-shirted and may see a move to SS which may be his more natural position.

    the more my recruiting goes to hell, the more recruits i have to steal from you. So think twice about liking that I lost 6 recruits last week and 7 hrs this week ;)

    Update for Nebraska

    :3stars: HB #42 Darrell Jackson out of San Benito, Texas. 6'1 190. Not a world beater but he is solid and will provide depth and see action early.

    :3stars: DT #24 Cortez Roberts out of Homestead, Florida. 6'2 318. A strong run stopping defensive tackle does well getting off his blocks and using his strength to stuff holes.

    :4stars: CB #9 Alex James out of Gunthrie, Oklahoma. 5'11 188. This kid should be a really good corner, he is fast and just as good in zone as he is in man. He will be a key contributor maybe right away.

    :3stars: CB #82 Chris Morris out of Houston, Texas. 6'0 173. Athletic kid, a bit undersized but he will do fine out in coverage, with some time to learn he should be pretty good.

    :3stars: TE #49 Ryan Berry out of Texarkana, Texas. 6'6 267. A big receiving TE he will provide a nice target and will have a chance to contribute right away with the departure of 4 year starter Nick Ham.

    :3stars: TE #30 Paul Campbell out of Victoria, Texas. 6'5 230. More of a balanced TE compared to Berry, but he is an excellent blocker especially on the run, dont underestimate his ability to grab some passes either.

    :3stars: DE #58 Russ Davis out of Powder Springs, Georgia. 6'3 249. Will mostly be used in passing situations, he isnt gonna be on any all american lists but he is solid.

    fixed haha. That was my best shot to steal them from you though. I didnt have a visit-friendly schedule this year.

    T(#7) :4stars:
    6'5 294lb Niles, OH
    Craig Thompson

    OSU needs more bodies on O-Line and this signing helps. Should provide depth and will most likely end up starting down the road.

    G(#8) :4stars:
    6'3 299lb Bucyrus, OH
    Noah Cary

    Quick feet for a big dude. Again, OSU is hurting for depth on the line but Cary helps. Should be a beast pulling from his Guard spot as he progresses (B+ accel, B- Impact Block).

    ATH(#3) :5stars:
    6'4 192lb Northview, OH
    Will Harmon

    I didnt catch what he was listed as on the DW, but Im pretty sure OSU just landed a 6'4 lock-down corner with elite speed and quickness (A Speed, B+ Accel, B- Agility).

    OLB(#2) :4stars:
    6'5 223lb Marysville, MI
    Xavier Irby

    Should be excellent out in space. Considering a move to MLB as we are thin there and the incoming MLB in this class isnt the most agile.

    DE(#2) :5stars:
    6'2 238lb Youngstown, OH
    "Nasty" Nate Williams

    OSU spent their second :5stars: scholly on another elite pass-rusher to compliment the squad of ends they already have. Definitely not a ''need'' position, but we couldnt let a hometown kid this beastly go.

    CB(#2) :4stars:
    5'11 169lb San Marcos, TX
    Timothy Williams

    Coach Max used his Texas connections to land this stellar CB croot. You can never have enough DBs and the staff considers this kid a steal rated as :4stars:

    MLB(#9) :4stars:
    6'2 249lb Houlston, ME
    Dan McCoy

    He is good, but his agility (or lack thereof) scares me. Not sure what will happen with this kid. A redshirt would be ideal but OSU needs help at MLB.

    FS(#3) :4stars:
    5'11 201lb Bridgeport, WV
    Daniel Davis

    Freak athlete here (A- Speed/Agility/Accel). Could possibly switch to corner to bring a physicality to the position but coverage skills would need work. Position doesnt really matter with this kid though, we just need to get him on the field. Another :4stars: ''steal''.

    SS(#1) :4stars:
    6'3 200lb Fountain Valley, CA
    David Brown

    I think the lack of blazing speed (B speed/agility B+ Accel) must have kept other potential suitors away, but Coach Max saw great potential in the #1 SS recruit. This kid is a redshirt year away from being a 4-year starter. OSU was actually able to slow-play this recruit getting him to sign almost uncontested. This was another guy the staff was grateful to learn had a :4stars: rating.

    TE(#11) :4stars:
    6'3 214lb Ranson, WV
    James Stewart

    An athletic, pass-catching TE that OSU likes to utilize down the field. The real prize at TE is still being recruited, but the Bucks need both of them to come in and contribute right away.

    WSU signs two recruits this week QB Johnny Ward who has a strong arm and decent accuracy, and a kicker.

    Anybody notice Penn St's :5stars: QB they signed. That kid would start for my team right away. I think he had A throw accuracy and is really fast.

    SHAZAMM think how good he will be after 2 years on the bench ;) though he might leave for MSU like my running back last year. That guy was the best running back I ever recruited.... very disappointed he left. After my current #1 HB leaves (this year or next) I will have a big hole. I had to sign a 4 guys to replace him. I have signed the #1 #2 and #8 HBs this year, but they are so slow compared to Johnson.
