A look at some of the top talent around the nation for the class of 2013
QB Donnell Matthews 6'6 230 Rosemead, CA Matthews is a dual threat QB out of California. Matthews is currently ranked the #1 Player in the country by ESPN. Matthews ran a 4.44 40 at The Opening in early July. He also participated in the Elite 11 camp and was named the MVP. Matthews has the prototypical size and uncanny speed for the position. He also has been graded out as being one of the top throwers of the football in the country. Size, Athleticism, Accuracy, Arm Strength = a kid that I see being atleast a two time all-conference performer and has the intangibles to win a National championship in the right situation. Comparison - Cam Newton Matthews has the ability to bring this type of versatility to an offense
Did's guess - I believe Matthews ends up at LSU. Les Miles has proven that he can shape an offense around his talent at QB. However, you can never count out Kiffin and the home state USC Trojans who seem hell bent on stacking talent at the signal calling position. Dark Horse- Alabama - Nick Saban recruiting - nuff said Top schools in contention are:
As long as that kid doesnt go to Alabama, I dont care where he goes.
Early Season Rankings There are 37 players in this class 6 from California 5 from Florida 5 from Ohio 4 from Louisiana 3 from Georgia and only 1 from Texas WOW and even some in obscure places like Idaho and Hawaii
At this point Coach ryty32 and THE Have pulled in the only 5 star commitment in a bruising HB from OH IO in Drew Thompson the #1 RB in the country and 24th overall rated prospect.
Looks like EA finally recognized Ohio for the high school football powerhouse that it is!
The top six states generating NFL talent are California (656), Texas (585), Florida (533), Georgia (263), Ohio (221) and Louisiana (205). These six states account for 50 percent of the players drafted into the NFL. Of these, southern states tend to generate more defensive linemen, while Midwestern and Mid-Atlantic generate more offensive linemen.
Whether you use your body to spell out Ohio with your friends on a Fall Saturday or Gator Chomp in the face of your Florida State rivals, one thing is certain: Great talent generates from great football programs.
Is that college or high school?
Few states have produced more football talent than Ohio. Only Texas and Pennsylvania can claim more Pro Football Hall of Famers than the Buckeye State, and only Texas, California and Florida have more players in the NFL.
sdid22 will tell you. Everytime Florida teams come up here, they leave with an L!
This is true . . .
Truly surprising to me. Growing up in Ohio I didnt expect that at all.
you guys are still jealous of kansas..
PA getting some love. Big33 games were awesome.
Coach controllerabuser How do you feel about the player you just landed a commitment from? What else do you need to round out your class? Who is your biggest competition on the trail and why?
Kiffin gets it done and gets Matthews. Huge get for the Trojans.
Well, he's the #5 MLB out of this class and a so he has a lot of hype surrounding him. Great size at 6'1 229 with good great speed for a linebacker at 84. He also has awesome acceleration at 90 which is nasty. His tackling skills are average at best but that is fine because he is just a freshman. They should all be 90's by the time he is a junior or senior. I am excited to have him commit as Kenny Demens will be leaving us soon. This gives us another piece to the puzzle in building the defense back up.
I would like to get a QB but I haven't seen any interested in us that are quality QBs. I'm going to have to search around now and try to find something. It isn't a need this year but I would like to get one for the near future. I also want to grab a HB at some point but we are set for a year or two.
Nobody so far, I tend to go very conservative on the recruiting game because I like ensure I get my guys that I need to fill my roster. That is what I always try to follow. That way, in year 2 or 3 and even 4 my seniors leaving are very low and I can go after the big dogs.
Former Recruit Jayvedon Clowney is a star in the making will one of these players be next 33 B. Hemphill ATH - UGA 18 S. Downing CB - Ark 7 J. Marquardt ATH - LSU 1 D. Matthews QB - USC 24 D. Thompson HB - Ohio St Reigns Supreme as Always taking down 3 big fish early
One of the nation's top defenders is going to stay near his home
Darrell WalkerDE | Pass Rusher Home Scranton, PAHeight 6-3Weight 250Caliber Rank #71 (#1 DE)
Cimmy24 How or will this player impact your defense next season? What are your biggest needs this year in recruiting?
Depending on what he shows us in camp, he may be seeing playing time immediately. Walker is a great player and a terror to offensive lines. As far as what we need to do yet in recruiting, I'd still like to sure up the defense. Especially at LB and our Secondary. For the offense, we are looking for some guys who will develop well, especially at QB.
WR MARSHALL CASON SOUTH AUGUSTA, GA 6-1 191 #2 PLAYER IN THE COUNTRY Initial scouting report shows that this player excels with speed, agility, and route running assessments. He won Offensive MVP at the Atlanta Sparq combine sponsored by Nike. He dominates the competition on his level and shows ability to separate and catch the ball away from his body. Cason will provide a team with a player that can contribute from day one. Cason currently has over 7 offers. However these are his top 3 as he narrowed his list last week. He has been offered by Alabama and Auburn but the family favorite Georgia Bulldogs has not offered. Cason has visits set up Missouri, Louisville, Auburn and Alabama. The way things have gone on the trail this year, my bet is that Alabama reels in another big fish.
YOU DOWN WITH YEAH YOU KNOW ME . . . NUMB3RS 21 - NUMBER OF FOUR AND FIVE STARS COMMITTED IN THE TOP 200 8 - SEC PLEDGES 6 - B1G TEN PLEDGES 3 - ACC 2 - PAC 12 1 - BIG 12 1 - INDEPENDENT
Today we sit down with one of the best interviews in college football. We invite Coach SteamboatReb to join us for a quick run down on the North Carolina Tarheels and their recruiting. Coach how do you feel the season is going so far? Who are the players on your team that are the core of the future? After that assessment do you see any pressing needs that must be addressed via the Class of 2013? Do you recruit to need only, or are you looking for best player available that wants to rock the Jordan Blue? Who are your biggest competitors on the trail this year? Other than Clemson and Florida State, can the ACC compete with the SEC in recruiting? Last, what is your most fond college football memory?
@contollerabuser Rumor on the trail is that Michigan has gained the word and a hand shake from a defensive stand out. More to come . . .
ATH JASON CARTER 6-1 171 PENN HILLS, PA #3 OVERALL PROSPECT IN THE NATION Carter is a player ladies and gentlemen. He gets it done how ever you want it. His speed and route running has the offensive assistants drooling on the trail. His ability to lock down and his understanding of zone coverages have the defensive coaches begging for his services. I caught up with Carter and while he was hesitant, he gave us a few tidbits. He claims offers from No Penn State???? "Yea i don't know what they don't like. They claim they want to restore the legacy and winning tradition but I haven't so much as got a letter from Coach Cimmy24 . Yea we are . . . We are making a mistake by not offering Jason Carter." What position do you want to play at the next level? "I'm not out for the attention," Carter said. "I'm not a big media guy. I do not need the hype and I don't like answering all the questions. I am just going to do my thing." Well in Did's opinion he will be doing his thing at THE and playing for Coach ryty32
