Who is the in-state 2018 recruit we CAN NOT miss on?
« on: September 15, 2017, 11:32:40 am »

We've got a stud QB in Noland, a stud athlete in Bohanon, and about 6 other capable SEC level kids in Arkansas this year.

Just looking at the recruiting sites and not knowing anything about the kid. This Billy Ferrell out of Fordyce looks like a big ol' NG that we absolutely must land.  The 3-4 is dependent on dominant play at the nose.  We don't even enough of those types this season to have a NG rotation of scholarship players.

I think our depth at other positions could absorb losing Bishop. We badly need Bohanon on defense, I don't see why he wouldn't want to switch to LB or SS there's more NFL opportunities at those positions. The rest of the kids in-state we could figure something out at their positions but Ferrell is a must get.

How many D-1 offers does Ferrell have?

Non-scholarship players are starting for us as true freshmen so I would say that we need to get all of them as they may be starters next season.

Hard to be sarcastic when its true.

Arkansas State, Memphis, Colorado State

Agree with the OP. I think Ferrell has more upside than Byers last year at DT and he's ready to play now. Not sure if he's qualified academically qualified yet.

And Billy Ferrell gets his Alabama offer.

Good Riddance Bielema. Choosing the flighty and yet unqualified Gooden over Ferrell was a disaster. Hopefully Coach Morris corrects this and gets Billy to Fayetteville.

Well let's look at the Top 10 according to RankByOffers.com:
Prospect                                    Location               Offers/Commitments
1. QB Gerry Bohannon                Earle, AR              16 offers
2. OL Noah Gatlin                       Jonesboro, AR       Verbally Committed to Arkansas
3. DL Isaiah Nichols                    Springdale, AR      Verbally Committed to Arkansas
4. QB Connor Noland                  Greenwood, AR      Verbally Committed to Arkansas
5. OL Luke Jones                        Little Rock, AR       Verbally Committed to Arkansas
6. DB LaDarrius Bishop               Ashdown, AR         Verbally Committed to Arkansas
7. DB Sean Michael Flanagan      Charleston, AR       Verbally Committed to Arkansas
8. DL Billy Ferrell                        Fordyce, AR           7 offers
9. OL Jax Gasaway                     Star City, AR          7 offers
10. OL Larry Clark                      Blytheville, AR        4 offers

So, you have G-Bo of course who would fit in this offense.  Billy Ferrell who would be a good addition especially if we go back to a 4 down lineman scheme so more defensive tackles would be needed on the roster.

Then, there are two offensive line projects if we were looking to add more offensive line depth and had strucken out on some of our other OL targets in OT Jax Gasaway and OG Larry Clark who would require 2-3 years to develop.

6. DB LaDarrius Bishop               Ashdown, AR          Verbally Committed to Mississippi State
7. ATH Sean Michael Flanagan     Charleston, AR       Verbally Committed to Arkansas
8. QB Jaden Hill                         Ashdown, AR          5 offers
9. OL Jax Gasaway                     Star City, AR          7 offers
10. DL Billy Ferrell                      Fordyce, AR           5 offers

So you have G-Bo of course who would fit in this offense.  LaDarrius Bishop who could be added since 2 cornerback commits from Texas decommitted and we had 4 DB seniors graduate this season, another QB that will not likely be taken due to already going after two other Arkansas kids that are better, an offensive lineman that is long that could develop in our system as athletic former tight ends do (think Lane Johnson), and Billy Ferrell who has an opportunity since Gooden decommitted and if we go back to a 4 down lineman scheme so more defensive tackles will be needed on the roster.

Billy Ferrell

You have never seen a 6'3" 330 pound DT shake defenders in the open field or make one-handed TD catches until now:

Bret was waiting for Billy Farrell to get qualified, mean time back at the farm, Bama, Louisville offer.
This kid will probably end up in JUCO but still need to offer to keep your foot in the door.
6'3" 330 pound SEC NG. Yep, i'm in.

Related to 2018 in-state kids we need to keep:
Looks like Arkansas commit Luke Jones will be on an official visit to Notre Dame this weekend. Judging by the highlights I've seen and the offense he played in, he's perfect for our new scheme so hopefully Coach Morris can keep him committed to the Hogs

Well let's look at the Top 10 according to RankByOffers.com (the website hasn't updated Billy Ferrell to show an Alabama offer so he will likely go up from the 9 spot):
Prospect                                    Location               Offers/Commitments
1. QB Gerry Bohannon                Earle, AR              15 offers
2. OL Noah Gatlin                       Jonesboro, AR       Verbally Committed to Arkansas
3. DL Isaiah Nichols                    Springdale, AR      Verbally Committed to Arkansas
4. QB Connor Noland                  Greenwood, AR      Verbally Committed to Arkansas
5. OL Luke Jones                        Little Rock, AR       Verbally Committed to Arkansas
6. DB LaDarrius Bishop               Ashdown, AR          Verbally Committed to Mississippi State
7. ATH Sean Michael Flanagan     Charleston, AR       Verbally Committed to Arkansas
8. OL Jax Gasaway                     Star City, AR          7 offers
9. DL Billy Ferrell                        Fordyce, AR           5 offers *website hasn't been updated yet to show Alabama offer
10. OL Larry Clark                      Blytheville, AR        4 offers

So you have G-Bo of course who would fit in this offense.  LaDarrius Bishop who could be added since 2 cornerback commits from Texas decommitted and we had 3 cornerback seniors graduate this season, an offensive lineman that is long that could develop in our system as athletic former tight ends do (think Lane Johnson), a defensive tackle who has an opportunity since Gooden decommitted and if we go back to a 4 down lineman scheme so more defensive tackles will be needed on the roster, and an offensive guard prospect.   

I forgot all about #6.  I guess BB passed on him.

Did he really?  Last I heard, he really wanted to come there and play with Montaric Brown but they were just kind of letting him blow in the breeze (paying no attention).  That kid is good.  He is lightning quick returning punts and has a smooth run, similar to Joe Adams.

Not exactly.

Staff determined they had three slots for DBs. Flanigan, Hanspard, and McAlister (is that right? the other two from TX) accepted offers and Bishop was wanting to look around. He had the opportunity to get one of the spots. I bet he gets the chance again.

Thanks for the clarification. I'm not real up to date on recruiting. My wife is from Ashdown and I go with her dad to most games. They've had some really good talent come through there recently. Bishop is quick and it looks like he sees the field pretty good, but I know he's from a4A school so he isn't seeing the best competition.

That is one athletic big man. Jason Peters was like this.  My freshman year(his last), we all went to the HPER to hoop. The man did a vertical windmill at 6'6 330.  I wouldn't be surprised if he has similar athleticism.

We've got a stud QB in Noland, a stud athlete in Bohanon, and about 6 other capable SEC level kids in Arkansas this year.

Just looking at the recruiting sites and not knowing anything about the kid. This Billy Ferrell out of Fordyce looks like a big ol' NG that we absolutely must land.  The 3-4 is dependent on dominant play at the nose.  We don't even enough of those types this season to have a NG rotation of scholarship players.

I think our depth at other positions could absorb losing Bishop. We badly need Bohanon on defense, I don't see why he wouldn't want to switch to LB or SS there's more NFL opportunities at those positions. The rest of the kids in-state we could figure something out at their positions but Ferrell is a must get.

He wants to play QB. He has the ability to play QB. Stoerner has had him in QB camps.

Clint told Bo the other day that GB is a little raw, but has great ability at QB. Any body moved to defense who doesn't want to be there is not going to fill a need.

Noland is a stud in baseball also. May get drafted high in June's MLB draft if he doesn't enroll in Jan.

GB is perfect for CM's offense. I'm sure there were people at Clemson who wanted to move Watson or Kelly Bryant somewhere else when they signed, that would have been nuts.

Even if GB is never as good as Watson, if he turns out as good as Bryant, that's plenty good enough.

We can get LBs who aren't also athletic freaks at QB. We can move a corner or two who are here now to SS with Bishop in the fold. Curl might be better at safety for instance.
