    For me the top three guys I snagged should be good players.

    MLB Porter might actually be my second MLB in the 3-4. While the C Fuller will likely be a backup C and G this year, but should be a starter soon.

    CB Hargrove with some progression might make a good nickel back or number two CB some day.

    Got lucky with a late 3 star HB named Sledge. He came in at 69 overall - about the same as guys in the 200s even though he was ranked 898 in the class. And while an MLB I got named James is only a 58 overall, he's got 90 speed and could be a terror on special teams.

    And managed to snag a punter to redshirt and have play in 2012 - he came in at 66 overall.

    Biggest dud? My number four recruit, a WR, is only a 62 overall. QB Richard Anderson ended up being worse than a lower ranked QB i snagged named Brown - despite almost 10 QBs being between them.

    And my starting kicker is a fucking 46 overall. Should be a fun year in that regard.

    yeah it is going to be interesting in year 5. I imagine the teams will get worse and worse.

    After this year...sigh. My defense is already pretty bad now.

    2010 University of South Florida Bulls Recruiting Class

    Name Pos Caliber Ht Wt Hometown OVR Comments
    Terrell Fisher ATH/QB :3stars: 6'1" 196 MelbourneFL 74 Crown Jewel of our recruiting class. Took a gamble on Fisher as he had B+ THP but THA wasnt available because of him being an athlete. Luckily he came in with a serviceable 79 THA that should only improve. Incumbent star BJ Daniels is a RS(JR) so he has the advantage of at least a redshirt year to develop. 77 SPD, 70 CAR.
    Steve Young WR :3stars: 5'10" 183 Boca Raton, FL 70 Young is a squirt outta Florida who we expect to contribute early. Will see time as a freshman as the 4th WR. Dont be surprised to see Young used on designed WR runs from the spread: he's a talented runner and finished 2nd team All-State as a RB his JR year. 70 BTK, 75 Car, 76 BCV, 89 JMP, 88 SPD.
    Rod Branch OLB :3stars: 6'3" 216 Aventura, FL 72 Good athlete who will fight for time as a freshman. Spent some time as a SS in high school but was moved closer to the line to better utilize his excellent instincts(79PRC). Comfortable in space for a LB (74 ZCV). Very quick (89 ACC) and can play all day (92 STA).
    Lee Singleton WR :3stars: 6'4" 234 Pompano Beach, FL 67 All-Region basketball player with a huge body. Will fight Steve Young to see the field, but may benefit from a redshirt. 87 SPD, 85 JMP.
    Ryan Nelson HB :3stars: 5'11" 203 Adamsville, AL 63 Part of a concerted effort to branch into other states, but will need a long time to develop. 90 SPD is his only notable attribute.
    Jamie Manning ATH/OLB :3stars: 6'0" 230 Piedmont, AL 56 Projected higher in the secondary, but we felt his skillset was best served closer to the line of scrimmage. 86 SPD, 93 ACC, 76 PUR.
    Brad Perkins OLB :3stars: 6'1" 215 Goose Creek, SC 65 Another quick backer with a nice first step (96 ACC) and decent speed (83 SPD). Also boasts 77 STR with 75 TAK.
    Jake Scott C :3stars: 6'0" 275 Sweetwater, FL 64 Fills a need at backup C. Solid passblocking skills (84 PBS) but will need to improve his run blocking arsenal.
    Chris Sherman TE :3stars: 6'1" 243 Carol City, FL 62 Bowling ball in the mold of former Florida TE Aaron Hernandez. 81 SPD, 74 JKM, 68 CTH, 79 RBK. Expecting alot out of Sherman later in his career.
    Joe McDougal FB :3stars: 6'1" 222 East Naples, FL 66 serviceable FB who will see time in some hybrid H-Back type sets. 79 STR, 82 AGI, 85 ACC, 75 BTK, 70 CAR, 64 CTH, 71 RBK, 7 PBK.
    Chris Harrison ATH/WR :3stars: 6'1" 184 Sarasota, FL 61 88 SPD ATH who is under serious danger of being cut. Can make the tough grab but struggles with consistency and doesnt have any true wow-me traits.
    Ben Washington OLB :3stars: 6'1" 246 Key Largo, FL 65 Speedy backer (85 SPD, 88 SPD) who we expect to contribute after a redshirt year. Needs to work on the mental side of his game but is a helluva athlete.
    Jed Garcia CB :3stars: 6'1" 180 Fort Pierce,FL 64 Coaches son who is a quick corner (87 SPD, 93 ACC) with good technique and a good head on his shoulders (70 AWR). Unfortunately, his lack of top end (84 SPD) will probably lead to him being cut.
    Marvin Lynch LT :3stars: 6'7" 321 Plantation, FL 61 Nicknamed "Big Un" by his HS coaches, Lynch is a flat out load. Needs a redshirt year to work on technique.
    Jason Wallace LT :3stars: 6'5" 283 Peachtree City, GA 64 Decent tackle who will start as an upperclassmen. 82 ACC, 74 RBK, 80 PBF.
    Justin Porter CB/FS :3stars: 6'1" 169 Brent, FL 64 Decent corner who was moved to FS after summer workouts. 89 SPD, 88 AGI, 84 ACC, 83 JMP, 77 MCV, 75 PRS
    Stephen Hall G :3stars: 6'6" 266 Decatur, GA 61 Serviceable backup G from Decatur (where its greater). 88 ACC, 80 PBK
    Chris Harrison ATH/WR :3stars: 6'1" 184 Sarasota Springs, FL 61 88 SPD WR. Nothing to write home about.
    Derrick Muhammed ATH/HB :3stars: 6'1" 195 Adamsville, AL 61 88 SPD HB. Nothing to write home about.
    Eric Humphrey Juco(SO) WR :3stars: 6'3" 183 Bayonet, AL 61 88 SPD WR. Nice athlete, but needs to improve his route running.

    I'd like to see Pitt's recruits. They finished with the #6 overall class in the nation.

    My class was ok, five players who will end up being starters. Two as true freshman..

    The rest most likely will get cut or might get one year to improve...cause they stink!

    not a bad class... got some good, young O-line and D-Line.. couple nice LB's and a young QB to go with some speedy WR's and HB's. My secondary is in shambles though.. CB Reed leaving early killed my whole setup. Looks like i will have 2 true freshman back there.. one at CB and one at FS.
