    Wow, I'm really amazed at UMiami's recruiting this year.
    Rivals has them at 15th with not one 5 star recruit.

    times are a changing!

    What the heck happened to Pitt.?
    I thought I saw Pitts recruiting class listed in the top 10 for the past month. Rivals has them in at 21.

    When Miami was winning all those titles, they never had top recruting classes or highly rated ones.

    Look at the 2001 team that embarassed Nebraska. Were any of those classes rated high? No.

    While it's fun to follow and talk about. It really does not mean a whole lot as long as you're in the top 20. Now if Miami was not there at, then I'd worry.:cooldude:

    very true I mean when OU won it in 2000 I think teh higest rated player on our team probably was Josh Heupel and he was a JUCO, and now look we get in the top 5 since then and how many NCs have we won? Zero.

    But yea its fun to see how ur school does in recruting I mean some players are as good as advertised, i.e Adrian Peterson :cooldude:

    I think Sam Shields is our highest rated recruit. Miami is usually a late bloomer in the recruiting process because we go after the top prospects & they like wait until the final day to make a splash.

    He grew up a FSU fan and has been promised a starting role in the KR game next year. Besides, what have the Gators won lately, I don't think they've won the SEC since 2000.

    What does having the #1 class prove? Nothing, besides these younger players are getting dumber by the minute!!

    That's all fine and dandy, I guess!! My 'Noles are building a pretty nice recruiting class themselves. None of these young guys are proven yet, so it doesn't matter if they are a 5-star recruit or 1-star. In all honesty, I would rather the Gators get the #1 recruiting class, so that way they would have no excuses for not winning a National Championship. BTW, do you have any information on when Spiller is going to announce his decision??

    :shakeno: It's Clemson for Spiller :sidelol:

    I love when a top 4-star recruit signs with a rather obscure team to try to bring them to the forefront, as long as it's not someone the U or USC is going after :D

    They've gotten three big signees today, 4-star LB Marcus Ball, 4-star SS Anthony Leon, & took 4-star WR Damon McDaniel from your Gators.

    Not bad, but they were ranked in the 20s by most places I saw before today. Those will help, but not enough, especially with their glaring OL holes. The Gators can afford to lose a few WRs anyway. :D

    As long as you don't lose Harvin, who by the way has yet to sign his letter.

    Here comes OL Andre Smith about to announce, the #4 player in the nation.

    He's staying home at Alabama, damn it.

    FSU lands another 4-star recruit, OL Daron Rose.

    I think he was saying that Harvin had signed his letter of intent for Florida.

    I guess Spiller did choose Clemson, man, I was for sure FSU had him after his visit!!!! Now we just have to sign a few OL and get Marcus Sims.

    Yeah I know what he meant about Harvin signing, thats what my "Awesome" was for. I was just trying to clarify the Spiller choice. Better Clemson than FSU. :wink:

    Even though I would have loved to sign Spiller, RB was not a real pressing need this year. OL is where we really need to step up.

    Well, we got Marcus Sims!! Not sure if he will play RB or LB, I'm guessing LB.

    FSU did jump a few spots in the last 24 hours..... no real major movers. Hazleton stayed with USC (boooo) and so they stayed in the #2 spot.

    As long as you finish with a top 10 recruiting class, thats a good sign. Arguing about 1st vs 3rd in the grand scheme of things is a moot point. These rankings of players are what scouts think...... we never know how well they will perform in college so talking trash about such a small difference in rankings is kinda silly. The difference is an extra 5 star player vs a 4 star player.

    And I agreed and said we could afford too. :wink:

    :eek: Wow FSU definitely finished strong. I think your reading to much into the "trash talking" between the Florida and FSU recruiting classes. It was all in good fun, at least on my end anyway. :wink:

    I was hoping ND would be able to steal McCoy but it sounded like it was between OU and USC. If that's the case Im really glad you guys got him :)
