    Post all things recruiting in here. A good way to start is to post your available scholarships.

    Correction... Plus 2 makes for 13 spots this season.

  3. 14 seniors this year so if we're going to 72 on the roster then I got 16 available scholarships burning a hole in my pocket already

    I liked the recruiting from last season where we picked a Bonus recruit for everyone

    Yes. I think the same rules as last year would be good.

    Also, regarding transfers - My roster showed my two transfers as being on my roster in the off-season, so I recruited two fewer guys and cut to 68. Then, when the season started, the transfers were removed from my roster, putting me at 66 - two under the number I can cut to. I didn't mean to do it. Now, I show 66 guys on the roster, but I really have 68, because these guys will be on the roster again next season. Anyway, I have ten seniors, and what looks like 16 available scholarships, but in reality, I have 14 spots available. Odd how it all works.

    Coming off a very successful season, Penn State is still trying to get over the heartbreak of losing in the BCS Title game.
    During the first week of official recruiting, PSU made a HUGE splash signing three (3) ESPNU Top 150 Prospects, 1 :5stars: and 2 :4stars: players
    Signing first on the dotted line for the Nittany Lions was :5stars: Athlete Josh Dunbar who was ranked as the #2 Athlete and #2 overall prospect.
    [​IMG]
    Coach Loaf's take: "We are very excited that Josh was willing to end his recruiting early and sign on for us. We see Josh as a DB or a LB in the future. He currently plays WR/DB for his high school team, but we plan to use him exclusivley on the defensive side of the ball.
    The next recruit to pledge his services was :4stars: SS Josh Davis who was ranked as the #1 overall SS.
    [​IMG]
    Coach Loaf's take: Josh is a ballhawker and we could really use his skill set on out defense. Josh was only ranked a 4 star player, but we feel as though his films show that he easily could have been a 5 star. Here at Penn State though, we recruit a certain type of young man, it isn't all about the "stars"
    The last of the 3 commitments for week 1 is :4stars: OG Adam Brown who was ranked as #5 overall Guard.
    [​IMG]
    Coach Loaf's take: What can I say about Adam? He is a beast, just watch his films. We are extremley impressed with his abilities to open up holes, but he really excels with Pass blocking.
    PSU is extremely impressed with these 3 young men, and cannot wait to have them on the team next year.

    I can make this happen at any point ... but the last time I did, I ended up having to undo it. You guys are all about things being difficult ... until they get difficult, that is.

    We are going to fill our quotas anyway, so what is the big deal about getting 3 in week 1?

    I was #1 on all of their lists, I am sure that other schools will be able to do the same

    Not true... we've just completed a year on Heisman recruiting in The Pride... It's tough, but realistically tough...

    Notre Dame Recruiting Report - Week 1

    TP.PNG OJ.PNG

    Notre Dame picked up two top notch defenders in week one, picking up the #2 and #7 strong safeties in this year's class. Both have good athletic ability, btu also good size, meaning one is likely to move to an outside linebacker spot in the Irish 4-3 system, where either would fit into a number of nickel packages. Who will move where, though, is still anyone's guess.

    RM.PNG

    The Irish also picked up yet another power running back this week, convincing Michigan native Ron Miller to spend the next four years at Notre Dame. Look for him to spend a couple years as a backup, since the Irish have loads of talent at the HB spot, but Miller should see time a couple seasons from now, if not sooner.

    After not signing a recruit until week seven last season, it was a nice change of pace to have some of the recruiting pressure lifted in week one. With the Irish only looking to fill 12 total spot this season, look for them to push hard on all of their remaining recruits.
