Position (Pos Rank)
LOL. North Texas is going to get a 6'7 240 lb QB with B speed.....
I like recruiting a little more this year. I put more effort into it and found some good gems. If qclassic 22 would stay the hell away from them. I have a chance to bring in 3 freshmen at WR over 79 overall. One's 6'4" 228 with 94 speed, the other two are shorter and slow, but more than quick enough for the Sun Belt. I'm trying to sign a 4th guy who's 6'7" at WR, but I'm in a battle for him, but it looks good so far. BPHusker you whiffed on Charlie Fulton, you started out on his list, and no one on it ever offered. I went from off his list to his likely destination, the next in a string of athletic QB's. I had hoped the CPU would miss Jamaal Dodd, but it doesn't look like I'm going to get him.
I should fill my class though, and with 21 open slots that's always tough. I probably shouldn't, and just hold off and have some extra slots when I hit 3 and 4 stars, but right now I can use guys in the high 60's for depth. I've got to do a better job on my schedule, the conference office has screwed me every season, and I only end up with one or 2 home games from week 9 to the end of the season. So I have to bring in guys earlier than I want. But week 11 could be a big week for the Ragin Cajuns.
Anyone know what position this guy might be? He's an athlete 6'5" 233 pounds but he has an interesting skillset.
86 speed, 97 acceleration, 40 throwing power and accuracy, 62 break tackle, 64 trucking, 82 elusiveness, 92 spin, 85 juke, 68 carry, 57 ballcarrier vision, 81 catching, 83 spectacular catch, 75 in traffic, 79 route running, 71 release, 70 man cover, 76 zone cover, 73 press, 72 tackle, 78 hit power, 85 pursuit, 75 play recognition, and in the 30's on all block shedding. I'm thinking he can be an oversize safety, or an undersize LB with great ball skills, or a big WR who could be dangerous with the ball in his hands, he's not strong enough to play TE. In this conference I could probably get away with playing him at CB if I wanted, that height would make up for being slow. He's only rated as a 66 overall, but I figure putting him in the right position could make him skyrocket.
hornfaninbama I'm like Nick Saban if they play good football I will find them lol, as far as that athlete he sounds like a good WR or Safety I don't know about CB with the 70 man coverage
I'm excited about my class. I signed two JUCOs that each have 94/95 speed and acceleration that will play A-Back for me. As well as two B Backs that are true FBs instead of the HB hybrid types and I got a ATH coming to play QB for me once Quez graduates.
For your guy, he sounds like a OLB. Or one of those very "in the box" SS types. Like in a 4-2-5 or 3-3-5. But if I were you I'd look at an OLB spot for him. Sounds like a playmaker if he develops.
I don't think he'd be great at CB, but he might be servicable. SS is what I'm leaning towards, almost like a Taylor Mays type SS. But he's got 2 inches and 15 pounds on Mays, and he was huge. I guess Kam Chancellor would be a better comparison.
The only thing that worries me about putting him at LB is that if he gets blocked, he's not getting loose. I'm thinking about moving to a 425 or 335 soon, I haven't run that in a few years, and it could be fun. I usually run with one cover SS and one run stuffer, and he'd be a great run stuffer for sure.
I signed a comparable SS last season who is redshirting this year, and will probably be moving to OLB next season. 6'4" 231 and 79 speed. Way to slow to play in the back 4.
ULL Has Huge Week in Recruiting
Ragin Cajuns Haul in 6 Prospects
Lafayette, LA- The Ragin Cajuns took some shots in the dark during recruiting this season, and it looks to be paying off for Coach T-Dawg Jenkins and his crew. The Ragin Cajuns hosted numerous prospects last weekend for their victory over the South Alabama Jaguars, and 6 of them were enamored enough with the campus and atmosphere that they chose to commit to the Ragin Cajuns on the spot.
The first 2 commits are both players who should provide depth and eventually see some playing time in the ULL defensive secondary. FS Cedrick Higgins out of Denham Springs is the kind of player ULL has never had much trouble signing. He's a homegrown Cajun who didn't have the production to merit a scholarship offer from LSU, but has the talent to play D1 football. He's a little bit of a project, but his measureables all show that he can play at this level. He will need to work on his cover skills and tackling. CB Lucas Fine is also going to join the defensive backfield after a redshirt season. He's from Hyrum, UT, and that makes his signing surprising. ULL has traditionally struggled trying to pull in out of state recruits, but this season they have done a remarkable job. Fine also has the physical tools to be a very good player in the Sun Belt, but it will take a few years for him to put it all together.
The next 4 commits are all on the offensive side of the ball, and figure to keep ULL's offense as explosive as it has been the last 2 seasons. The past few seasons the Ragin Cajuns have concentrated on running the ball, and the signing this season may not signal a sea change, but it will open up more of the playbook for offensive co-ordinator Paul Petrino.
Pat Walker is also an out of state recruit, hailing from Athens, OH. He is a little raw as a pass catcher, but the ULL staff fell in love with his physical tools, and are confident they can refine him into an excellent WR. Walker is a WR but is built more like a TE at 6'7" 228 pounds. "We hope to use him more like Jimmy Graham is used in New Orleans. He's going to be too big for regular CB's to cover, and too fast for LB. We hope he will end up being a mistmatch for us in the passing game.
The Ragin Cajuns also inked 3 more players, and any of the 3 of them could be a headliner for a single class in Lafayette, but all 3 have decided to come down together, and hopefully start the beginning of a new era in ULL football.
Athlete Charlie Fulton out of Nashville, TN looks to be the next QB at ULL. Everyone knows that Terrance Broadway will graduate this season and last season's JUCO transfer Eddie Harris is the heir apparent. But Fulton shores up the position for the years after Harris moves on. Fulton is 6'2" 228 pounds and shows good polish in the spread passing game. His arm strength isn't all world, but his accuracy is much better than you'd expect. He's improved over the last season (79, +5)and figures to be an excellent QB when his turn comes up. He will redshirt next season to get a little seperation between himself and Harris, but many ULL fans are counting the days until he lines up under center.
The Ragin Cajuns inked 2 of the top 8 WR in the country. Larry Mitchell from South Orange, New Jersey is the #7 WR in the class, and looks to be a #1 WR for ULL going forward. He's 6'1" 209 pounds, and lacks the top end burst he might need in a power conference, but his speed should be more than enough to be dangerous as a deep threat in the Sun Belt. He has excellent hands and intangibles. If he improves over the next four seasons like he has over the last season (79, +5) he could leave Lafayette as one of the best WR in school history. He's going to get paired with Joey Cunningham out of Longview, WA. Cunningham is 6'4" 220 pounds, and looks like he will be an absolute force for the Ragin Cajuns. He has the top end speed that Mitchell lacks (94) and the size and leaping ability to outmuscle smaller DB's and bring in passes. As good as Mitchell is right now Cunningham is even better (80, +6) and because of his physical skills has the chance to be a Calvin Johnson type mis-match for the next 4 years. Mitchell and Cunningham will start from day one in Lafayette.
ULL is also in on another excellent WR in Kyle Matthews which would give them 3 of the top 14 WR in the country. Matthews is a WR in the same mold Mitchell springs from. He's smaller, but has better speed that Mitchell, and pairing the 2 "mighty mites" with the 2 big WR on the outside should help galvanize the passing game.
Coach Jenkins had this to say, "I really like the players we have committed so far, they will really help us in the passing game, which will open up more holes for our RB. We will need that next year with our power back, Alonzo Harris, graduating. We will go with 2 smaller, speedier backs in the backfield, and giving them some running room will help our running game stay consistent even with his loss. Fulton should be an excellent QB for us in the future. He'll add a little speed and we'll refine his passing and in 2 or 3 seasons he will be an excellent player for us."
Sounds like its Air Raid time in Cajun Country!
I don't know it could be, but if I do it'll be something more like what the Aggies run. My problem with it is that I throw way too many picks in the Air Raid or Run and Shoot. I read it one way before the snap, and then right after i forget what I saw and throw it where it doesn't belong. I need that run threat to keep yall honest.
