    6'3 202 LBS. B+ Speed

    Waller has plenty of talent ahead of him on the depth chart. Should be a nice weapon as a Junior or Senior.

    Looks like you might have found a diamond in the rough. And nothing so far for Arkansas. No big commits but making progress. More updates on recruits will be coming

    Some more signings for the Commodores

    :2stars: TE Antwan Rose
    6'4" 255 LBS
    C+ Speed, C Catching
    Nothing Special but adds some depth, probably won't see the field much

    :2stars: G Brandon Smith
    6'3" 286 LBS
    B- Pass block, B- Run Block, B+ Strength
    Great run block footwork, good turn out to be a decent player

    :2stars: DE Tyler Moore (Juco)
    6'4" 291 LBS
    B- Speed, C+ Strength, B Power Moves
    Looks to be a good fit for the 3-4 defense, fills up a position of need for Vandy

    The Duke Blue Devils manage to sign:

    DE Jeremy Murphy
    :2stars: (#63 DE)
    6'5" 252 pounds out of Newport News, VA

    B- Speed
    C- AWR
    C- STR
    C+ TKL
    C+ PWR Moves
    B- FIN Moves
    B Injury

    I think I just got a STEAL boys. There is little doubt he will start right out of the gates seeing as my best right now is a 68. Jeremy seems to have a HUGE upside and with C- awareness looks to be a tremendously football savvy player.

    Now I need a book-end to match!

    The Duke Blue Devils sign another:

    FS Robert Stewart
    :2stars: (#92 FS)
    6'1" 208 pounds out of Morganton, NC
    B Speed
    D Awareness
    B- TKL
    B- Man
    C Zone
    C+ Hit Power
    C- Stamina
    C Injury

    Another one that makes me VERY happy, still recruiting another FS though simply b/c that position is HORRIBLE for me and graduating a senior. Looking at his grades I think he'll be a good 70-73 range player as a freshman, not good enough for many of you guys teams, but good enough for the rebuilding Blue Devils.

    Colorado Locks up a New Recruit!

    The University of Colorado coaching staff is proud to announce the Verbal Commitment of :4stars: FS Casey McKinney from Bayshore Gardens Florida. He is a 6'4" 214 lbs senior who has been labeled a hard hitter by his high school coach. With Colorado's depth of talent at the position he should come to school next fall ready to compete for the starting FS position. Coach York had this to say about him "He's a talent... he was pursued by a lot of big schools and we are proud to say that next fall he will be a Buff. We want Casey to have a productive senior season and be ready to come here to help us get to the next level."

    Man standards have been lowered significantly. We are taking a page out of how FSU was ran in the 90's.

    This week the Aggies of Texas A&M landed three new recruits to their '10 class.


    Name-Alvin Tatum
    Size-6'5 265 LBS
    City and State-Carrollton, TX
    Position and Stars- Offensive Tackle and three star
    Notes-Tatum will need time to develop. At some point in his career he should have an opportunity to start.
    Key Attributes- B- Pass and Run blocking ratings

    Name-Will Cummings
    Size- 6'2 180 LBS
    City and State- Mercedes, TX
    Position and Stars- Corner Back and four stars
    Notes- Cummings could be an exciting player in the Aggies secondary for years to come. Needs to work on his hands to become a superstar.
    Key attributes- B Man coverage rating

    Name-Akeem Bowers
    Size- 5'11 213 LBS
    City and State-Jacksonville, AR
    Position and Stars- Outside Linebacker and five stars
    Notes- Bowers may lack the speed needed to play on the outside and could find himself playing middle lineback for the Aggies. Bowers could have the opportunity to start right away.
    Key Attributes- B Tackling rating, B+ Pursuit

    The Aggies are looking to have a very talented class this year. We will be much improved on defense.

    The Duke Blue Devils manage to sign:

    DE Chris Gibson
    :2stars: (#64 DE)
    6'1" 207 pounds out of Archdale, NC
    B- Speed
    D- AWR
    C STR
    B TKL
    C PWR Moves
    D+FIN Moves
    B- Injury

    An undersized DE for sure, especially compared to the signing of the #63 DE right in front of him, but should still come in a starter because we are HORRENDOUS on the ends. Could probably actually make a decent LB due to size but instant impact will be on the ends. Estimating a 72 or so overall, I'd be quite content with that.

    FB Adam Clark
    :2stars: (#16 FB)
    6'2" 212 pounds out of Smith Creek, NC

    B- Speed
    D AWR
    C STR
    C- Carry
    C+ Trucking
    C ON EVERY BLOCKING CATEGORY!
    C+ Injury

    Is the man at fullback and is set to enroll in the spring. Was number one on my list all the way until he signed. Would be nice if I could give him a year in redshirt but he will simply fix one of the two only positions not returning a starter that is good. Can run, can truck, can block, legit all the way...will make a dang good name for himself at Duke before he's done. I'm predicting a solid 72 as a true freshman...way better than a 59 that starts now.

    South Carolina still has a lot of work to do to close out the campaign, but here is the makeup of our recruiting class so far.

    Taylor Flemming :5stars: (#4 WR/#21Ovr)
    6'0" 175LBS
    Toccoa, Georgia.
    B+ Speed, B Route, B Spec Catch, C Catch
    Taylor Flemming is the current headliner of the class. Flemming actually happens to be the nephew of Coach Blaza sharing his last name. This lead to a fairly easy decision for the WR out of Toccoa, Ga. The decision was a bit bizarre however considering USC is stacked at WR. Given this position, there is a major chance Taylor will take a redshirt in his first year in Columbia. His catch rating appears to be a concern as he has shown the penchant for making the spectacular play but doesn't always concentrate leading to an easy drops at times. When he does hit the field, Flemming will most likely see time in the slot looking to create matchup problems.

    Darrell McCoy :3stars: (#27 QB)
    6'4" 223 LBS
    Sanford, North Carolina
    B- THP, C+ THA, C- Speed
    Fairly ordinary QB prospect out of Sanford NC. We hope to be pleasantly surprise but McCoy will definitely be redshirted and his chances of ever seeing the field don't seem great.

    Danny Anthony :3stars: (#53 G)
    6'7" 283 LB
    Belvedere Park, Georgia
    B Pass Block, C- Run Block, B- Strength, B Run Block Footwork
    We were intrigued by Anthony's size initially, but it remains to be seen if his Run Blocking can improve. He is a redshirt candidate.

    Jimmy Washington :3stars: (#34 DE)
    6'4" 236 LBS
    Port Orange, Florida
    C+ Speed, C+ Tackle, D+ Awareness.
    Another ordinary player in who will need to improve tremendously to see the field. Awareness could end up end up devoloping into a heady player, but probably not!

    USC has some very talented players who are close to signing but we really need to close out on some of them and fast.

    Anyone else have any badass recruits they have or are close to landing? I'm in good standing with most of the guys I really want on my board, but I play Florida this week and then a bye after that :(. So it might be a while before my next win.

    I've signed a 4 and 5 star WR, both will be starters next year. Both are like 6' with A- speed. I've signed two 3 star OLB, one will definetly be starting next year. I locked a the top CB IMO, he's a five star from South Dakota who will be shutting down any and every WR he covers for at least the next 3 years.

    Guess who the number 1 DT in the country is taking a serious look at....Yep, Texas. The after Tecas its me Miss St. lol. Hopefully we have what it takes to sign this kid. I skyrocketed up this kid's list, now we just need to seal the deal. In other words, I just have to ask weather he wants cash or one big check!

    opened up the game to see the outcome of eagles and my sim last night. It seems Colorado pulled an upset and beat the Ladies um Aggies 23-13 and as a bonus signed 4 recruits 2-4 star and 2-3star I will get a write up soon. A bowl game seems to now be in reach at 4-5.
