Anyone know what this is about?
We made an offer to a JUCO LB committed to Tennessee. Not sure I like this w/ all the LBs we have on the roster and in the incoming class:
Only makes sense if the staff thinks we're losing players that we might not expect. Then I could see wanting a guy they think could play next year and not have to rely on a current commit as a true freshman. Outside of the starters, we know what we have in KJ and Houston has flashed a little. Not much else.
Agree, and it's telling about the others (Miller, Brunson, Jackson). This kids a 4-star and has an impressive offer list, which is good. But he's committed to UT right now. FSU offered Bertrand today. Not sure if he plans to visit.
I do believe we will lose quite a few people this year. Probably the reason they want good film before they leave.
Black was just dropped about 100 spots by 247's composite ranking (to 146th overall). Since he's not playing this year, I imagine that has something to do w/ it. Hopper just got selected for a post season game:
So stupid how kids rise and fall hundreds of positions every two weeks, and even during the summer. 247 is such shyt.
I actually have a feeling that we're going to see a few guys declare for the draft. Not the LB corp, unless Joseph keeps putting up 14 tackles and 2 sacks a game the rest of the way. I also think we process a lot of guys out. Who knows how many and where. If he's a two year guy, I don't see an issue. If he's a 3-year guy, you may risk having recruits look elsewhere. Also consider that he may be a plan B. What if Black does have academic issues? What if Hopper bails on us? What if we don't land Bertrand?
Worthless w/o stars
Looks like a great job for you.....
Man every week we get closer to December I feel more anxious about where we are in recruiting. Not sure why Black had dropped by nearly 100 spots in ranking. We are now ranked 25 on Rivals with 15 commits on the board. I know we will not see the LSU game recruiting weekend materialize immediately, but kids are committing to other schools during the season and we are still striking out. TN is now ranked in the top 10. FSU is still at top 13 with the $h1t show they have to offer. On the face of it Mullen seems to be putting effort into recruiting, but not getting it done yet. Are we just lacking in staff when it comes to recruiting? Donno.
Is Diwun Black no longer a good player because they dropped his rating? They dropped it because he's not playing this year to concentrate on his academics. Is Dionte Marks not tearing it up this season because he's underrated? What did the #1 rated class of 2010 ever get us?
Certainly not declaring Black not a good player all of a sudden. Didn't know he was not playing this year though. The number 1 rated class in 2010 contributed to 11-2 in 2012 despite having WM.... just saying. No way around it. If we are expecting to compete with UGA and ultimately Alabama at SECCG level and playoffs level in the next 3-4 years, recruiting needs to pick up significantly and close on our targets.
They also contributed to 7-6 and a 4-8 record on the years bracketing 2012.
Clearly talent alone does not win championships. Similarly, coaching alone does not either. To think we can compete for anything substantial with a team talent ranked in the teens to twenties is nonsense. We are not just talking about Alabama and Georgia here. 10 SEC teams and FSU are all out recruiting us at the moment. Recruiting at that level is just not going to get it done. Just hoping for a good showing on Early signing day at the moment.

Earky or graduation? So hard to rank him anyway since we don't even know where he'll play. I care far more that Hopper is looking good than that Black dropped.
I only see Polite leaving. Maybe Reese, bc hus draft stock would be the same. VJ will benefit huge from another year. I could see at least one older safety leaving and think it would be mutually beneficial as long as we can replace them.
Calm down, but yes: we lack the staff to recruit with them if they don't suck. I think you see decommits from cr@p teams later in the season though.
