          Last year Kelly indicated the edges of the front seven on defense was their highest priority. This year he stated offensive playmakers and the defensive backfield.

          Shumate might be this years IShaq...here is to hoping with Diaco on the trail it will have the same result.

                          Qoute from ESPN Insider article: College Football Rumors - Rumor Central - NCAA - ESPN

                          Shumate, meanwhile, has reportedly received a scholarship offer, but he has visited Rutgers, Boston College and will trip to UConn this weekend according to Palmetto Sports. South Carolina is after him after landing three N.J. products in 2011.

                            I wondered the same thing. He was a classmate (though I never met him) and a great b-ball player at ND and in the NBA. For some reason I remember him most for his post ND days as a Buffalo Brave and dealing, successfully, with health issues. Inspirational.

                            Help, Mr. Wizard! And by that I mean BGIF ...

                              What about a realtion to former 5 star Trojan recruit now transferred to UConn, DJ Shumate? Any relation there?

                                Nope. D.J. Shoemate is from California, and has a different last name. Sounds similar, though.

                                  From Rival's Monday Mailbag:

                                  Is the talent level in New Jersey as good as it was last year?

                                  - John from Wayne, N.J.

                                  I think it's going to be more talented at the top but maybe not quite as deep as last year. The 2011 class in Jersey was very deep with guys such as Savon Huggins, Anthony Sarao, Miles Shuler, Marquise Wright, Damiere Byrd, Sheldon Royster, Bill Belton, Connor Wujciak, Josue Matias and others. All of those guys ended up in the Rivals250 which is impressive and there might not be as many four stars this year but I think there are more high-end prospects.

                                  Darius Hamilton and Devin Fuller are both absolute studs and guys like Elijah Shumate, Leonte Carroo, Yuri Wright, Quanzell Lambert and others are not that far behind. I think you'll see as many if not more guys in major all-star games and I can say with near certainty that the highest-ranked player in Jersey should be in the national top 30 rather than outside the top 50 like 2011.

                                    His scout profile has South Carolina and Rutgers as high interest and the rest as medium.

                                        I agree with you out of the 3 we have offered, but Hamilton is an absolute monster (he even got the most props from the author of the Rival's Mailbag). Wonder why he hasn't been offered yet, as he is arguably the best prospect of the 4.

                                            Didn't make his initial top 5 per ESPN:

                                            ESPNU 150 Watch List S Elijah Shumate of New Jersey is working with a top five of Connecticut, North Carolina, Penn State, Rutgers and South Carolina. He told Eric Guimaraes of PalmettoSports.com that he has no favorite, but earlier in the week he told Matt Hladik of ScarletNation.com that Rutgers and South Carolina are his top two.

                                            The Scarlet Knights have the lure of being just down the road in New Brunswick, and Shumate told Hladik: "I've been down there three or four times and I know all the players and coaches. All that familiarity, it's just like home. I get the feeling I'm well-liked down there. I feel like they really want me. That's important to me."

                                            But the Gamecocks also have a New Jersey connection thanks to QB coach G.A. Mangus, who recruits the state for Steve Spurrier. In February, South Carolina reeled in three Garden State natives, including three-star RB Sheldon Royster, with whom Shumate is friendly. "We talk a lot," Shumate said. "He tells me if I go down there he can help me out and look out for me."

                                                Unfortunately it really does look like a South Carolina / Rutgers race at this point. Hope it changes.

                                                    Note from the Rutgers camp this weekend:

                                                    Shumate was one of the most physically-impressive prospects at the event. He runs extremely well, has quick feet and hands and good ball skills. The question will be if he plays in the box or back at the safety position in college. The nation’s third-ranked safety prospect, Shumate has more than 30 offers and currently favors Rutgers and South Carolina.
                                                    Four-star safety Elijah Shumate (Ramsey, N.J./Don Bosco Prep) said that Rutgers and South Carolina are his current top two programs. He will visit several schools unofficially this summer.

                                                      Also remember that we are in the running for a number of other top DBs and that we get Chris Badger back next year, as well.

I think he ends up Irish in the end because there is no way they can pass up on a receiver with his talent

Shumate said that list now consists of USC, Notre Dame, Michigan, Georgia Tech and Rutgers in no order. Connecticut, Penn State and North Carolina were bounced from his top five. Shumate was at Georgia Tech over the weekend. It was really great, he said. I really love the school. Thats the only campus visit hes made this summer. He wants to get to USC and Michigan but nothing has been set up. He will not be at USCs camp this week. He did talk to Gamecock recruiter GA Mangus last week. Shumate said the earliest he will make a decision is the Army All American Game January 7th.
