    Im loving this recruiting class at first glance. Not really strong at HB from what I saw, which is fine with me. Seems like there are plenty of WR's to choose from, so I should be able to get at least 1, there usually isnt any left for me after Virgina/FSU and Georgia scoop them all up.

    Florida
    LSU
    Miami
    Florida State
    Oklahoma
    Texas

    Recruiting just seems a whole lot less competative than seasons past, must be the 3 guys we are missing. I'm battling FSU for the #1 DT, he is another man child and if I land him I may have to make the switch to the 4-3.

    A&M got a commit from the PS#3 QB Andrews. He wanted to stay close to home. He's not as talented as Kris Hughes, but he's a mobile guy with a decent arm.

    A&M received a huge commitment from :4stars: FS PS#1 Wayne Sellers. This guy could end up being one of the best LBs we have ever had.

    Some atts off the top of my head: 6'5'' 218 lbs b- spd, b agility, b mancov, b zone, a- pursuit, b+ hit power, b tackling, a- acceleration, b block shedding, a- jumping and the list goes on.

    I think I got those right, might have a couple switched around.

    Just signed 5* ath martin who looks to be the next beastly mobile qb. Hopefully comes in as a so in case Collins doesn't leave early.

    Yeah, I should have pushed harder for that ATH. I gave up a couple of hours once I signed that :5stars: QB.

    A&M received two commitments this week from a solid :5stars: SS PS#2 and :4stars: ATH PS#4 Grier who looks to be a really good FB. If so, he will definitely play his FR year. I was trying to get a FB in last year and couldn't. Now my starter is a SR(RS) with no one behind him.

    Yeah, he looked pretty solid, but I have been burnt by too many JUCO players to go after one, I have yet to bring one in that has progressed much at all.

    I was really just looking to get him as a buffer between my next QB. Would have worked out perfect.

    UCLA signed the number 1 rated WR who is 6'5" 195 lbs and has 4.40 speed. He has good catch ratings and looks to be a solid receiver for UCLA. As I sit here, I can't recall his name, but he looks really solid.

    UCLA had about 10 prospects in for visits week 6 and hopefully we will lock down most of our recruiting class this week.

    We signed the #1 player in the country, a DT that looks to be an absolute superstar. He will be paired with the #2 player in the nation from last season, a DT also who came in at a 87 overall to make one of the best DL's in the nation for the next few years. We are not looking to move away from the 3-4 so one may get moved to DE.

    I don't know HOW you got him. The week before you signed him, I put 3 hours into him with 2x...and you still signed him.

    TE 61 Stan Ginn :2stars: 6'6'' 255 4.92 Vero Beach, FL B- catching, pass block strength, pass block footwork
    DE 69 Kevin Bentley :2stars: 6'2'' 257 4.64 South Augusta, GA B pursuit/C+ speed, tackle

    Picked up a couple recruits. I think Ginn could turn into something.

    A&M received phone calls from both the #1 C and the #1 SS in the country this week. Nothing really exciting about them, but they should be able to redshirt and learn the system.

    UCLA picked up two commits both from LB's one is a MLB that may be moved to OLB, but could stay at MLB if a guy we signed last year doesn't develop.

    That gives UCLA three commits so far with two LB's and 1 WR. UCLA has 11 scholarships to hand out assuming no one leaves. There are 8 guys on my board, and I expect to lose 1 or 2 to the draft and probably won't sign 8 more this regular season. Should be interesting.

    The ags picked up a surprise commitment last weekend with TE Nathan Snyder #4 giving his verbal to come play ball in College Station. At 6'4'' 246, Nathan should have at least a year to learn the ropes before he is asked to carry any of the TE load in our offense.

    It was a surprise because we were behind on him and he had a week 10 visit to Florida. I thought for sure I wasn't going to land him.

    Position PS# Name Caliber Ht Wt Notes
    QB 3 Aaron Andrews :5stars: 6'1'' 219 B- speed with a B+ arm. Decently mobile and a gret overall athlete. Could battle for the starting job as a freshmen.
    FS 1 Wayne Sellers :4stars: 6'5'' 216 One of the best LB prospects of recent memory. Super explosive player who can find the ball and make the hit.
    ATH 4 Nick Grier :4stars: 6'1'' 221 Played FB and LB in high school. Great build and work ethic. Verbal to A&M on an offer for playing FB. Could start immediately.
    SS 2 Patrick Palmer :5stars: 6'0'' 169 Average speed and great instincts. Takes great angles to the ball and can lay the wood despite the below avg size for a S.
    SS 1 Robert Bowie :5stars: 5'10'' 198 Better speed and DB skills than Palmer but doesn't read the play as well.
    C 1 Brian Cox :5stars: 6'1'' 292 Better footwork than upper body skills currently. Not elite size.
    TE 4 Nathan Snyder :4stars: 6'4'' 246 Fits the mold of a TE in Coach Drifter's offense. Good speed and hands. Will have at least a year to learn the blocking scheme.
    DE 7 Kevin Long :4stars: 6'2'' 230 Not the prototypical size of a DE in the A&M scheme, but Long runs and tackles well.
    C 4 Bill Beck :4stars: 6'6'' 294 More polished upper body strength than Cox. Could compete with Cox for playing time or move to G and contribute.
    CB 6 Maurice Hagen :4stars: 5'11'' 188 Great footwork, even for a DB. Speed to keep up and burst to close. Not very physical.
