Probably a dumb question, but are we doing this too?
Swaying players from Draft -- Yes
No cap on stars
Everything should be outlined here: http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/saturday-heroes-description-2012.56006/
UCLA lands their first commit to their 2012 class.
Analysis: Gerren has a small frame but has the speed and agility to be a patient runner and wait for the holes to open up. He could use some guidance from the WR's coach to be useful in the quick screen and flats utilized in the Pistol and wouldn't hurt packing on a few pounds.
Instant Impact: Zero to Slight. With potentially 3 HB's on the depth chart ahead of Rich next season, a redshirt may be better suited for him to learn the ropes.
New commit, the #2 Guard in the country:
Analysis: Wilson's size and speed allow him to play a handful of positions on the field. His strong ability to shred blocks and hit with some extra oomph may make him a viable addition to the linebacking crew at UCLA. Jonathan shows promise in zone and man schemes when asked to cover a receiver, however he will need to work on his pursuit angles rather than always focusing on the big hit if he really wants to make a splash in the PAC-12.
Instant Impact: Moderate to Heavy. With an already weak MLB core and a lack of depth in the OLB position, Jonathan will likely get to see plenty of second team snaps or even compete for a starting job next fall.
Analysis: Stovall is a huge pick-up for the LSU defense which should lose Morris Claiborne to the draft this year and Tyrann Mathieu after next season. Stovall has good size, speed and can play man or zone. Stovall commited to LSU in week 3 after having Auburn as his #1 choice from the preseason.
New commit, the #15 DE in the country committed to Texas last week:
Analysis: Mitchell fills a position of need on the Bruin defense. He has above average speed and is a sure tackler which can come in handy for some of the spread running teams of the PAC-12. He will need to work on his Play Recognition skills and Pursuit Angle skills if he wants to make the All PAC-12 team down the road in his career.
Instant Impact: Moderate to Heavy. A lack of depth after this season will put the OLB position in a hole with no one having starting experience (barring no injuries). Mitchell will likely be playing behind Sophomore (RS) Eric Kendricks next fall but could compete for the starting job in the Spring if he enrolls early.
Analysis: Josh also fills a position of need on Coach Golfer's recruiting agenda. The offensive line has been a weak link this season and Josh has proven to be an excellent Pass Blocker and a pretty good run blocker. He will be working closely with the Offensive Line coach to work on his footwork and may need to enroll early to build up some strength for the college level.
Instant Impact: Moderate to Heavy. All jobs on the offensive line are open come Spring ball. Josh will be able to compete for the LT position this fall.
LSU adds 3 more commits to the list. #2 QB Marcus Peterson #8 OLB Spencer Davis #17 CB Maurice Kendrick
We ain't signed shit.
Although we did sign a 3* athlete.
4 MORE!2 Play makers Commit
Strengths: Fast, very fucking fast. A+ speed and A acceleration fast. Cover skills(both man and zone), press and ability to recognize plays.
Weaknesses: Tackling and catching.
Analysis: The #1 corner in this year's class. A top 150 recruit who won't let your receivers breathe. This guy could start from day 1 depending on how our secondary turns out next season. He will start soon though.
Strengths: His release, route running and catching along with spectacular catching. I wouldn't call his ability to catch in traffic a "weakness" but he is not a big receiver and might need to put on some pounds.
Weaknesses: His size and jumping skills.
Analysis: The guy isn't a burn your corner for 6 type of receiver but he can get the job done. He is more of a Wes Welker type receiver. Small, quick and can catch pretty much anything. I can see him starting in a year or two.
Strengths: Tackling, strength and his ability to finesse move to the quarterback.
Weaknesses: Speed and power moves.
Analysis: A good pick up that will add depth to the line. He should redshirt and will probably play some of his sophomore year and possibly start his junior year.
Strengths: Size, Run block footwork and strength.
Weaknesses: Wouldn't call them weaknesses but he needs some work. A lot of C+ ranks in his blocking skills.
Analysis: Another great pickup to add depth to the line. Washington is capable of starting for 3+ years. It will all depend on the guard situation and how he can progress with a redshirt.
