          Looks like Kendall Fuller will choose VT tommorow. I guess Clemson ran out of money.

              Silas Redd + probably a high 4/5 star or maybe two. Heard that it is a DB. Probably McQuay who IMO is the best pure FS in the class. Kid has great Ball Skills.

                While that sucks, not unexpected. Redd to USC was all but given the first few minutes after the sanctions were announced. We all know USC was not done with some of the top guys on the board. Will be interesting to see once they are at their max, who is left out.

                  Of the few 5 stars that are left, none of them are really even considering USC except Willis. McQuay is at Gridiron Kings and all the talk around him is Vandy and FSU now.

                    This^ and I'm not very confident about Willis. If SC takes another DB I believe it will be Jermaine Kelly, UCLA commit.

                      Surprised Texas only have 14 commits usually they have 20 by June. Is this because of recent struggles, Texas A&M and Baylor coming out in the past couple years, or just Texas kids looking in other directions now?

                        Per BG Sapp is hearing that Tahaan Goodman will commit to USC soon and that they will be out of scholarships after that. I originally thought it would be McQuay because a Rivals USC insider said it was a DB. Didn't think they would take Tahaan.

                          I'm hoping with USC basically done for now as far as scholarships, I'm sure they aren't done, that Washington can step up and take some to build up to smack down USC.

                            Looks like Greg Bryant is going to switch from OU to Auburn. This sucks because Auburn was really the only other major competitor to Michigan for Derrick Green. Michigan has gotten extremely lucky during his recruitment. Just a few weeks ago he was favoring Clemson and OSU. Than Clemson filled up and OSU said no thanks.

                              So where is Tahaan Goodman going now that SC is full? I've heard LSU? Nothing concrete at all though. Curious if anyone has heard more.

                              Priest Willis too, same question. LSU? I'd be thrilled if we could blow him away when he visits and steal him.

                                In the Last Tunnel Vision they said Willis is leaning LSU.

                                  I seen a tweet that someone at USC would give their scholly up for Redd if he were to transfer.

                                      I wonder if BIG is just emphasis or a big ten school target? Michigan? Perhaps Penn State?

                                            Rumors going around that Nkemdiche's dad excepted a job at Ole Miss. Considering that his brother already goes there; if true this could get interesting.

                                                I have no idea. I just read it on the Rivals and 247 boards.

                                                  Bryant has decommitted. Only a matter of time until he commits to Auburn.

                                                    Mike Farrell on Rivals is hearing that USC told Leon McQuay and Tahaan Goodman that there was one spot left. McQuay was set to commit to USC last week but backed out. That spot was filled by Torrodney Prevot so they are full as of now. Sounds like McQuay is no longer considering USC and that Vandy is the leader. FSU, Oregon, and Notre Dame are still under consideration and will get officials.

                                                      Interesting. I would love to snag McQuay. He could be an even better Jamoris Slaughter for us, right? A guy that, in our system, could play any of the four DB spots.

                                                        IMO McQuay has the best ball skills of any safety in the country.

                                                          FSU buddy thinks they have a good chance at getting him.

                                                              It blows my mind that an intelligent kid like him would say Vandy, ND, and FSU in the same sentence.

Someone here in another thread explained what's going on with A&M, but I can't recall the exact details. IIRC, A&M has several open slots left over from last season's class, 25 signees would still leave them below 85 on scholarship, and thus can oversign a bit this year to get back up to full strength.

The mom is a legislator in their native country (Nigeria?) and has stated she prefers Bama, but the older brother is at Ole Miss and Robert seems to be leaning in that direction. I think we have about a 35% chance of landing him.

                                                                                        Looks like Greg Bryant is going to switch from OU to Auburn. This sucks because Auburn was really the only other major competitor to Michigan for Derrick Green. Michigan has gotten extremely lucky during his recruitment. Just a few weeks ago he was favoring Clemson and OSU. Than Clemson filled up and OSU said no thanks.
                                                                                        Thats probably who it is.

I believe, per the new SEC "rules" on oversigning, you could sign, say, 50 guys in a class still...provided you are under or at 85 and only 27/25 are Freshmen.

You can just sign up to 27 total and bring in 25 unless you have additional scholarships left over from the previous year's recruiting class and will still be at 85 or fewer on scholarship.

And the 27/25 really doesn't mean sh!t then if you've got more than 25 spots available. Then an SEC team could still sign 50 freshman (theoretically), if they only had 35 returning scholly players?

Seriously. I'm not trying to argue or be insulting to you, but you appear determined to wilfully distort and misrepresent the facts in order to make a point. The need to do so is usually a good indication that an argument is invalid and NOT supported by the truth.

                                                                                                We have to follow the same NCAA rules as everyone else. SEC rules are more restrictive than the NCAA's on this subject. You may not like those rules. I don't like some of their rules either, but they are the ones in effect at this time and we have to follow them like everyone else.

                                                                                                I don't think there was anything in my reply that was unclear unless you went out of your way to misinterpret it. SEC rules allow teams to sign up to 27 and bring in up to 25 per class. The only exception is if you have scholarships remaining from your PREVIOUS recruiting class AND have room for them under the 85 total scholarships cap.

                                                                                                Occassionally, a team won't use all 25 scholarships with a recruiting class for various reasons. They will then have a few scholarships left over to use with the following year's recruiting class and can use those extra scholarships to exceed the 25 limit as long as they don't exceed a total of 85 on scholarship by the start of the following season - all completely within NCAA rules. Hardly any sort of competitive advantage in delaying bringing players into your program.

                                                                                                A few of you seem determined, despite all facts and explanations to the contrary, to believe SEC teams promise scholarships to 50 players each class, keep only the best ones, and sign 40 new players every year. Check your facts and look past the hatred and bias towards all things Southern or SEC.

And the 27/25 really doesn't mean sh!t then if you've got more than 25 spots available. Then an SEC team could still sign 50 freshman (theoretically), if they only had 35 returning scholly players?

Seriously. I'm not trying to argue or be insulting to you, but you appear determined to wilfully distort and misrepresent the facts in order to make a point. The need to do so is usually a good indication that an argument is invalid and NOT supported by the truth.

                                                                                                    We have to follow the same NCAA rules as everyone else. SEC rules are more restrictive than the NCAA's on this subject. You may not like those rules. I don't like some of their rules either, but they are the ones in effect at this time and we have to follow them like everyone else.

                                                                                                    I don't think there was anything in my reply that was unclear unless you went out of your way to misinterpret it. SEC rules allow teams to sign up to 27 and bring in up to 25 per class. The only exception is if you have scholarships remaining from your PREVIOUS recruiting class AND have room for them under the 85 total scholarships cap.

                                                                                                    Occassionally, a team won't use all 25 scholarships with a recruiting class for various reasons. They will then have a few scholarships left over to use with the following year's recruiting class and can use those extra scholarships to exceed the 25 limit as long as they don't exceed a total of 85 on scholarship by the start of the following season - all completely within NCAA rules. Hardly any sort of competitive advantage in delaying bringing players into your program.

                                                                                                    A few of you seem determined, despite all facts and explanations to the contrary, to believe SEC teams promise scholarships to 50 players each class, keep only the best ones, and sign 40 new players every year. Check your facts and look past the hatred and bias towards all things Southern or SEC.
