    OC ESPNU Recruiting

    Here we are going to take a look at the nation's recruits- from the ESPNU 150 to the 3 star gems. The Big East will be our focus with this particular info stream and we are going to try and highlight different recruiting battles throughout the conference. With the conference's new shape it now spans from Fresno State and San Diego State in California, into the Rockies with Air Force, down into Texas with SMU and Houston, into Florida and the southeast with UCF, USF, and Louisville, and finally up the coast to Navy, Rutgers, Temple, and UConn-- this conference truly spans the entire country. So without further ado, let's take a look at the latest recruiting battles on the 2012 trail.​
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    Our first prospect is the #8 QB in the country, Andrew Weaver. Andrew hails from Commerce City, CO and is a nice looking dual threat QB and the 229th overall player in the class. He has a solid skill set which includes a serviceable arm and plenty of leg to make some plays on the ground as well.

    Anthony has in state up and comer Air Force as his #1 at the time, but USF has been hanging around at #2 all season long. Both schools are fully capable of utilizing his dual threat abilities, so it should be interesting to see where he lands in the next few weeks as he is nearing decision time. If he lands at Air Force he will likely wait a little big before taking complete control of the offense, but he could have a legitimate shot at USF right away as the current quarterbacks on the roster aren't even in the same ballpark in regards to athleticism as current starter BJ Daniels.

    Staying with the signal callers, we take a look at the #7 quarterback in the country and another guy that is being pursued by his in state team. At 6'2 230, McBride has great size for the position and has a good arm that should fit well in a west coast, quick passing system- he leaves something to be desired with his arm strength. Thomas has a quick first step and is slippery in the open field for a guy his size.

    As mentioned previously, the UConn Huskies are in hot pursuit of this homemade product. South Florida again can be found in pursuit of a quarterback, as they are clearly looking for a nice athletic quarterback to take over for BJ Daniels. UConn has a nice sophomore signal caller in Scott McCummings, so McBride would likely have a chance to sit back and learn the system for a season or two- but the opportunity would certainly be there after that and likely his job to lose.

    Our final recruit we are going to take a look at switches us over to the defensive side with OLB Chris Carrington. Chris has great quickness and is a good sideline to sideline defender. He is a smart player as well and is one of those players that has the potential to be a real leader for a squad. He certainly needs some polish, but the raw tackling and athletic ability is here to be molded into a good linebacker.

    Carrington is currently being pursued by UConn and and Navy. With the Huskies, Chris would have his work cut out for him as the unit has a solid group of young linebackers. Navy on the other side (other than the obvious military impact he would have a chance to make) would likely give Chris an opportunity to play right off the bat, depending on what the rest of Navy's recruiting class looks like.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    That's going to wrap up our first recruiting round up, hope you all enjoyed it and again please let me know of any battles you have going on- it's hard for me to find them on my own :/

    McBride is better than his initial ratings showed. The only stat that I haven't unlocked is his Throwing Accuracy. Do you happen to know what it is - BPHusker - and would like to share? He was projected to be a 73 OVR but is now a 79 OVR and will be a great fit for running the West Virginia playbook that has a lot of plays for a running QB. He has 84 SPD, 78 BTK, and 89 ELU along with 84 THP, which is good enough.

    We both had him ready in the same week. The first week he is ready you can set up a visit for whenever. If it didn't allow that, whoever happened to recruit first would have a big advantage.
