    • :4stars: CB Andrew Gibson has committed to Michigan. A wiry player who loves to play physical despite his thin frame. Needs to improve tackling and not go for the big hit.
    • :4stars: DT Steven Mason has committed to Michigan. Undervalued as the #19 DT in the class. Has all the skills to be a dominant DT in the Big 10.
    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: T Russell Long has committed to Ohio State. Excells in run blocking and not too shabby on the pass side either. A little under weight to be a left tackle. Should develop into a starter JR or SR year.
    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: T Wesley Davis has committed to Penn State. Solid all around. Great awareness. Possibly an All Big 10 performer by the time he's an upperclassman.
    • :4stars: G Daniel Knox has committed to Penn State. Needs development as a blocker but will excel when asked to pull or trap.
    • :4stars: G Antoine Brown has committed to Penn State. All around blocker. May look to move to tackle with his size and length.
    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: G Chad Harper has committed to USC. Just what you want out of a guard. Smart, strong and can move. Look for this kid to be a beast.
    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: DT Phillip Barber has committed to Wisconsin. Known for his ability to pressure the QB. Put him next to a big, clogging DT and watch him create havoc.

    Great work radio! Bob snags 3 good lineman that should help with the run game. Very good instant commits elsewhere as well.

    • :4stars: DT Jeremy Cochran has committed to Oregon over USC. Another solid DT from a deep crop. Has really nice and balanced skill set with only negative being that atrocious 5.24 forty.
    • :4stars: ATH Jon Hargrove has committed to Oregon. Definatley a DB and DW has him listed as a CB. He will end up wherever the depth chart makes sense. Good speed and coverage ability say CB but very good play recognition and lower agility may make him better suited at FS.


    2 F'n commits total, seriously?

    I've given up 88+ points in two games lol. Well, one of them was simmed against K-State and the other went into triple OT with Iowa, so I supposed it's not too bad. That's still a boatload of points tho lol

    • :3stars: QB Matt Burchette has committed to Penn State. Has prototypical size at 6'5" and a great understanding of the position. Look for him to RS and take time to develop physically. Could develop into a starter by JR year.
    [​IMG]

    • :5stars: ATH Ryan Brown has committed to USC. Listed as FB on DW and that's probably where he will end up. Is undersized for the position but can block with the best of them.

    • :3stars: MLB Tim Reed has committed to Iowa. Other than low agility, Tim has everything physically Iowa looks for in a MLB. If his mental abilities catch up to his physical ones, watch out.
    [​IMG]

    • :3stars: WR John Martin has committed to Arizona State. A JUCO transfer that will have 2 years eligibility. A solid skill set should help John get on the field early if ASU doesnt use a RS on him.

    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: SS Brad Smith has committed to Cal over Oregon and Boise St. Great skill set even for a position that usually has well rounded prospects. Can cover like a corner and hit like a linebacker. What he lacks is speed he more than makes up for with his playmaking ability. Will be hard to keep this kid on the sideline.
    [​IMG]

    • :4stars: DT Willie Thomas has committed to Iowa over Utah, Boise and Oregon. DT that has the pass rush ability of a DE and the height to swat down passes. Takes good angles running down outside running plays.

    Week 6

    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: C Donald Keller has committed to Cal over ASU and Fresno St. Gets off the ball quick and really doesn't have any holes in his game.
    • :4stars: CB Scott Howard has committed to Cal over Stanford. Won't be an immediate impact guy on the Bear defense, but with some seasoning, should be a reliable corner.
    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: OLB William Smith has committed to Michigan over Ohio St and Oklahoma. The kid is a playmaker that reads plays well and flies to the ball.
    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: T Greg Ryan has committed to Ohio St over Miami and Wisconsin. Has exceptional size and is outstanding in pass protection. Should be a great left tackle for the Buckeyes.
    • :4stars: MLB Casey Perry has committed to Ohio St over Mich and Notre Dame. The #1 MLB in the class is a wrecking ball at 6'1" 246 lbs. Is suspect in pass coverage, but he was made for Big 10 football.
    • :4stars: CB Ryan Keyes has committed to Ohio St over Miami, WVU and Wisc. An absolute burner with 4.32 speed and A acceleration. Plays the ball in the air well and will seperate it from the receiver if a catch is made.
    • :5stars: QB Calvin McCollum has committed to Ohio St. While other schools shied away from the 6' kid, the Buckeyes saw his electric ability. He will sit and develop his passing before challenging for the starting role.
    [​IMG]
    • :3stars: DE Lamar Dunn has committed to Purdue over Cincy. Tabbed a "run stopper" but he really does pass rushing equally well. Don't expect Dunn to be on the sidelines too long before Purdue gets him on the field.
    [​IMG]
    • :2stars: P Corey Galloway has committed to ASU. Good leg and a position of need for the Sun Devils.
    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: OLB Kevin Morris has committed to USC over Oregon. Great burst and specializes in wreaking havoc on opposing teams' run game.

    WEEK 7

    [​IMG]
    • :4stars: T Thomas Lawrence has committed to Cal. Not athletically gifted but is a serviceable RT right now. Look for him to RS and take time to develop.
    [​IMG]

    • :3stars: MLB Justin Powers has committed to Oregon St over Colorado and Nevada. Has good speed and acceleration for his position but isn't ready skills wise to see the field. Needs development before he's ready for the PAC 10.
    [​IMG]

    • :4stars: DE Dallas Williams has committed to Iowa over Boise St, WVU, Utah. Don't let the kid's measurables (6'2" 218lbs) fool you, he's a bear to block and will do just fine in the rugged Big 10.
    • :4stars: ATH Derrick Williams has committed to Iowa over Oregon. Williams could be a CB, FS, or even a RB. Look for Iowa to use him in the secondary. Depth chart will determine final position but he should develop into a starter.
    [​IMG]

    • :4stars: T Kevin Coleman has committed to Ohio St over Auburn. At 6'3 and 272 lbs with A acceleration, Kevin's future looks to be more at G than T. He has great awareness that might suffer because of a position change but flexibility is definately a plus with him.
    • :4stars: G Sean Connor has committed to Ohio St. Everything you want out of a guard. Powerful and explodes out of his stance. Future All Big 10.
    • :5stars: C Jermaine Massey has committed to Ohio St over LSU and Alabama. The #1 Center in the class shouldn't have a problem living up to the billing.
    [​IMG]

    • :4stars: ATH Thomas Moss has committed to Oregon over Wash St. Should be a nice between the tackles RB for the Ducks after a RS and development.
    [​IMG]

    • :2stars: G Jovan McGuire has committed to Purdue. The JUCO transfer will have 3 years eligibility remaining. Should be a starter by year 2.
    • :3stars: MLB Jeff Harrington has committed to Purdue over Bowling Green and Kent State. Isn't going to blow up the run game, but should develop into decent MLB for Purdue.
    [​IMG]

    • :4stars: CB Kellen Jones has committed to USC over UCLA. Loves to get into a WR's face and challenge him at the line. Doesn't have typical CB speed but makes up for it by being physical. Ty Law type of CB.
    [​IMG]

    • :3stars: T George Moore has committed to Illinois over Kentucky. Another tackle that may be better at guard. His speed and acceleration and footwork would make him a force when asked to pull and lead block.
    • :3stars: CB Chris Davis has committed to Illinois over Kentucky. Good athelete that has decent cover skills. Solid prospect for his ranking and could be starter after a RS.
    • :3stars: CB J.P. Bell has committed to Illinois. Similar to Davis but with better awareness and size. Another solid pickup for the Illini.
    • :3stars: CB Marcus Williams has committed to Illinois over Wisconsin. Out of the 3, Williams has the best chance to see the field early. Is just a solid CB.

    Week 8

    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]TE Justin Higdon has committed to Cal. Decent speed, catching and blocking for a kid of his rating. Maybe after a RS and a few years development he will be a servicable TE for the Bears.
    • [​IMG]WR Brandon Brewer has committed to Cal. A good route runner that can go up for the jump ball despite his 5'11" frame. Would like to see the drops minimized before he hits the field.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]QB Jared Perry has committed to Iowa. If Jared can improve on his B- accuracy, he will be a Drew Brees clone. He doesn't have the strongest arm (B-) but is pretty smart and can avoid the rush and moves well in the pocket.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG] DT Adrian Anderson has committed to Michigan over Oklahoma, Notre Dame and LSU. Is much more athletic than most guys his size but lacks the disruptiveness of DT's of his caliber. Will probably RS and hope potential shows.
    • [​IMG] WR Kelvin Roberts has committed to Michigan over LSU and Cal. 6'3" 208lbs with 4.32 speed, decent hands and B rated spectacular catch. Will be a red zone and deep play nightmare.
    • [​IMG] WR Brandon Morris has committed to Michigan over Notre Dame and Alabama. The 3rd down threat to pair with Roberts. B- catching and B+ spectacular catch and A- acceleration. Just doesn't drop 'em....ever.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]WR Tommy "Touthpick" Brown has committed to Penn St. At 6'7" 186lbs, he will be a matchup nightmare. If you are gonna be tall you better be able to go up and snag the fade, which Tommy struggles with at the moment. He does have impressive A acceleration and uses his long arms to avoid getting jammed very well. Maybe the most interesting prospect to watch.
    • [​IMG] P Dave Boyd has committed to Penn St. Position of need filled...moving on.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]OLB Patrick Brown has committed to Purdue. The only thing keeping this kid from being a [​IMG]is his penchant for missing tackles. Learn to wrap up and he's as good as any.
    • [​IMG]HB Phillip Phillips has committed to Purdue. Isn't the most athleticly gifted but has some moves to get by tacklers. He will need alot of development before he's a factor in the Big 10 but should be productive.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]HB Travis Brown has committed to ASU. Much more powerful than his 6'2" 190lbs frame indicates and has nice 4.46 speed as well. He could use a RS but may be good enough to play right away.
    • [​IMG]CB Sean Dunn has committed to ASU. The JUCO transfer will have 2 years eligibility. Not the fastest but good height at 6'2" and overall cover ability will give ASU a boost in the secondary. A RS, if the depth chart allows, would be beneficial.
    • [​IMG]ATH Michael Mathis has committed to ASU. Listed at WR by DW, he has a great frame (6'5" 210lbs) and could develop into a nice WR. Cover ability shows potential in the secondary as well.
    • [​IMG]DE Brad Lowe has committed to ASU. Powerful kid that throws people around and can bat balls down at the line. Low athleticism keeps him from being rated higher but has all the skills to be a force. Good find by ASU.
    • [​IMG]DE Ira Guillory has committed to ASU. Can really move for his size and has an all around game. At his size, he could move inside to DT and not hurt his already low awareness.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]SS Keon Gray has committed to USC over Alabama. Easy to see why the big boys wanted this kid. Excells in zone and can hit as hard as anyone in the class. Get him close to the box and watch him make play after play.

    • :3stars:TE Marquice Wheeler Has committed to Stanford over Fresno St. Good speed for a kid his size and a pretty darn good blocker as well. If he can develop into a receiving threat he will be a huge cog in the Cardinal offense.
    [​IMG]
    • :4stars:HB John Kelly has committed to Cal over Stanford. Great top-end speed and shiftiness in the open field. Ability to lower shoulder and get tough yards inside as well. Future star for the Bears.
    [​IMG]
    • :3stars:TE John Adams has committed to Iowa. A nice big target at 6'6" a strong blocker in the run game. Sub par footwork and questionable hands are all thats holding him back.
    [​IMG]
    • :5stars:ATH Travis Jackson has committed to Ohio St over Texas, LSU and Alabama. He will end up as a safety for the Buckeyes and be a star down the road. Has elite speed, a nose for the ball and a motor thats always running.
    [​IMG]
    • :4stars:QB Lance Harper has committed to Oregon over Notre Dame. The #2 Qb in the class has a good arm and eludes tackles well. His overall athleticism is lacking but could still develop into a productive starter given time to progress.
    [​IMG]
    • :3stars:HB Tristan Green has committed to Penn St. Hmmm...6'3" 200lbs with a B- in route running. He's listed as a power back but doesn't have power. He's at his best when he has space to elude defenders. Could a position change be in his future?
    • :3stars:DE Jeff Thomas has committed to Penn St. The JUCO transfer will have 3 years eligibility. Quick first step and good pop. Sheds blocks well and gets to the ball deceptively fast.
    [​IMG]
    • :3stars:MLB Lionel Huggins has committed to Purdue. Is fast and gets there in a hurry but struggles in other areas. Gets lost in assignments. Use the KISS rule and don't ask him to cover much and he will be productive.
    • :3stars:ATH AJ Swain has committed to Purdue over Ole Miss. A small kid that uses his agility to jitterbug up the field. Best chance to see the field would be a 3rd down back but needs to work on his hands and blitz pickup.
    [​IMG]
    • :3stars:SS Brandon Broussard had committed to ASU. At 6'7", "The Buzzard" is a freak in the secondary using his long wingspan to swat passes out of the air. There are no holes in the kid's game, only potential and upside.
    • :3stars:SS Ben Cobbs has committed to ASU. Excels in zone coverage but struggles in run support. Not as skills as Broussard and will probably do alot of cheering until he's an upperclassman.
    • :3stars:C Chris Flowers has committed to ASU. The JUCO transfer will have 2 years eligibility. Solid blocker with B+ agility. If the depth chart allows for a RS, he will be a really good center.
    • :4stars:HB Bo Clement has committed to ASU over Va Tech. 4.36 speed with the ability to make tacklers miss but loves a good collision. Future starter for the Sun Devils.

    WEEK 10​

    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]DE Chris Mathis has committed to Stanford. Has the strength to hold his gap and the speed to be a good pass rusher. Could be a 3 or 4 year starter for Stanford.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]OLB Alex Cox has committed to Oregon St. Average athleticism but does well when asked to attack the line of scrimmage. May have difficulty in the explosive Pac 10and will have to be hid in coverage.
    • [​IMG]MLB Brandon Fernandez has committed to Oregon St. Can get swallowed up in the run game but covers well and can move sideline to sideline.
    • [​IMG]HB Martin Edwards has commited to Oregon St. Won't "WOW" anybody with his highlight tape and may have trouble getting on the field until late in college career. Does have nice size at 6' 202lbs and a nice juke.
    • [​IMG]WE Craig Sanchez has committed to Oregon St. Has 4.38 speed but gets sloppy with routes and drops passes. His athleticism will get him on the field, his development as a receiver will determine his sucess.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]MLB Michael Potts has committed to Cal over Akron and UNLV. At 6'5" 231lbs, he may actually flourish as a run stopper despite his "coverage" tag. Nice speed, acc and agility as well as B- in finesse moves make him an interesting prospect to watch.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]FS Steve Rodgers has committed to Iowa. JUCO transfer will have 2 years eligibility. 4.36 speed and uses every ounce of it on unsuspecting ball carriers. Doesn't miss tackles but can struggle in man coverage and get sucked in on playaction.
    • [​IMG]DE Ed Riley has committed to Iowa over UCF. What he lacks in athleticism, he makes up for in his ability to throw away blockers. Tough to escape his grasp. Another solid find for the Hawkeyes.
    • [​IMG]QB Collin Smith has committed to Iowa over UNC, TCU, LSU and WVU. Pretty smart kid with a strong arm and ability to escape the rush. Another undersized kid that could develop into a really good Big 10 QB.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]T Chris Howard has committed to Michigan over Notre Dame and LSU. Nice frame at 6'6" 306lbs and A aceeleration. Strong kid as well with better footwork than most lineman his age.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]QB Clarence Graves has committed to Ohio St. JUCO transfer will have 2 years eligibility. Good knowledge of the offense and decent throwing ability. He could challenge for the job if he gets a RS and develops well.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]DE Steve Chase has committed to Oregon over Alabama. Very solid in the run game and requires constant double teams. Could be All Pac 10 by his Jr or Sr year.
    • [​IMG]DE Blake Love has committed to Oregon over Oklahoma. Another distruptive force but rushes the passer better than Chase. Another possible All Pac 10 performer.
    • [​IMG]WR Casey Davis has committed to Oregon over Va Tech. 6'5" with 4.42 speed. A physical kid with an intangible toughness that goes over the middle at any level of the defense. Solid, solid pickup for Oregon.
    • [​IMG]DT Dave Brown has committed to Oregon over Oklahoma and ULL. Used to eat up space and blockers. Don't expect alot of tackles or sacks but will make an entire defense better.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]T Justin Lee has committed to Penn St over UConn. JUCO transfer with 3 years eligibility. Not often do you see a 2* kid that could help a Big 10 team, but with a RS and time to develop, Justin may one day be a starter.
    • [​IMG]ATH Markus Macklin has committed to Penn St. Doesn't shine anywhere and will probably end up as a career backup at WR.
    • [​IMG]FB Derek Johnson has committed to Penn St over Ga Tech. JUCO transfer will have 2 years eligibility. Serviceable FB that blocks well and adds depth.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]CB Jaime Stewart has committed to Purdue over Nebraska. Very well-rounded player that should develop into a nice cornerback. Doesn't excel in coverage but reads plays well, tackles, and is reliable doing multiple things.
    • [​IMG]C Anthony Barber has committed to Purdue. Decent blocker that could land the starting role once an upperclassman.
    [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]WR Greg Bailey has committed to USC. Good speed and catching ability but gets stuffed at the line and doesn't produce any YAC.
    • [​IMG]T Kellen Graham has committed to USC over Boise St. Horribly unathletic but does excel in opening holes and holding defenders at bay.
