A few years can make all the difference in recruiting (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/02/a_few_years_can_make_all_the_d.html)
 
Quote
In the midst of sifting through the office desk mess, I happened upon the preseason SuperPrep magazine from 2008. That's just long enough for the top prospects to either pan out or flame out.

Speaking of which, Tate Forcier is on the cover.

For every Matt Barkley (rated No. 1) and Aaron Murray (No. 3), there's a Garrett Gilbert (No. 5, who transferred from Texas) and Tyrik Rollison (No. 12, who went from Auburn to Sam Houston State to off the grid).

The success rate for top recruits and their transition to the college level typically falls below the career average of a Shaquille O'Neal trip to the foul line. In this case of skill positions, this group has fallen well short of that mark.

In this case, call it the Lane Kiffin Effect...

Orson Charles  UGa 6.0 as a WR  2009

Former University of Georgia tight end and NFL draft hopeful Orson Charles was arrested in Athens early Friday and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

"The officer stopped behind the vehicle and after a few seconds flashed his high beams in an attempt to get the attention of the driver," Sorrow said.

"When the driver did not move, the officer exited his vehicle to check, thinking the vehicle might be disabled or the driver might need assistance," Sorrow said. "At that time, the vehicle started to move."

According to police, his blood alcohol level was .095, above the state's legal limit of .08.

The junior from Tampa, who caught nearly 100 passes in three seasons for the Bulldogs, is considered one of the top tight ends in next month's NFL draft. (http://www.ajc.com/sports/uga/former-uga-te-orson-1378654.html)

Enrique Davis  6.0  Auburn didn't make it to campus

Among the top RBs of 2008 counting toward someone's recruiting class

Enrique Davis  6.1  Ole Miss

Monday he's dealing with an arrest and a felony criminal charge resulting from an incident early this morning outside a Panama City Beach nightclub.

A Panama City Police report states an officer witnessed Davis urinating on a parked car in the Club La Vela parking lot.

The officer approached Davis, and asked him for his i.d. so he could cite him.

When Davis walked away, reportedly while cursing at the uniformed police officer. The officer says he went after Davis, and when he attempted to detain Enrique, the report states, Davis struck the officer with an elbow to the face, knocking the officer to the ground.

ESPN SEC Blog on Travell Dixon, CB, JUCO, Alabama: Dixon has had a pretty successful spring, and has had the honor of playing at Alabama's "star" (nickel) cornerback spot. That shows you just how much coach Nick Saban respects Dixon's game. Saban usually puts his most complete defensive backs at the star. That's where Javier Arenas played, and DeQuan Menzie after him. With Alabama losing Menzie and Dre Kirkpatrick at cornerback, Dixon has a chance to come in and start immediately.
 (http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/41201/sec-newcomers-to-watch)

You can look back in the thread and see how many highly rated Bama prospects Dixon will move past on the depth chart.

SEC football powerhouses not only fill positions with the top recruits, they stockpile beyond need making talent unavailable to the rest of the conference. No blame to them. That’s their job. They never know for certain which one will emerge as the star.

Recent analysis of SEC recruiting from ’07-’11 reveals a high number of four and five star athletes who never pan out. Beyond injuries, academic, and legal troubles, many transfer to D-II late in their careers after being effectively released.

The information does not seem to be available to SEC level football recruits at the level of basketball recruits. They need a nagivational guide to football recruiting rankings and a copy of "Don't Waste Your Life".

Top basketball recruits are more willing to relocate farther from home and more saavy to not land at a school with no starting slot available. Yet top football schools are recruiting deep at key positions and then the players are disappointed a couple of seasons later as they announce their transfer intentions. Even Bama QBs Star Jackson and Phillip Sims could not foresee their lack of playing time while signing up with the Crimson Tide. They do have rings as parting gifts.

There are high school players each season holding a golden ticket. A chance at playing a dangerous game that could provide you and your family substantial wealth. It may take a nontraditional program to sell the idea that top recruits will not only have a chance, you will have a golden opportunity to succeed if you do your part. You will get TV exposure, NFL level prep, and top notch competition. At the other place you might get that shot, but you might get passed by this 3-star or that 4-star.

Then show the long list of players who did.

Tide fans hailed recent commitment Cooper Bateman as the Alabama QB of the future, but Nick Saban and his staff may not be finished recruiting the quarterback position for the Class of 2013.

Just a week after receiving Bateman's commitment, Alabama extended a scholarship offer to Marietta, Georgia star Parker McLeod, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect from Walton High School. McLeod is the teammate of another Alabama commit, running back Tyren Jones, and made a strong showing recently at the Atlanta Nike Football Training Camp alongside other nationally elite quarterback prospects.

Lawrenceville, Georgia, linebacker Trey Johnson is one of the crown jewels of Auburn's 2013 recruiting class so far, but Gene Chizik and the Tigers aren't resting easy just yet when it comes to the four-star playmaker. Top programs from around the country have continued to pursue Johnson despite his commitment to the Tigers since August  2011.

Johnson was among a slew of Auburn commits attending the Tigers' "Big Cat Weekend" last week, but the 6-foot-2, 220-pound star is planning a number of visits to other schools in the coming months.

Class rankings are a bedrock of the recruiting industry and provoke the most debate from analysts, fans and even the coaches (who claim they don't look at them but really do check them out). While there is often a varied opinion about recruits -- few are "can't miss prospects" -- it seems like there's more consensus about the class of 2013 then past years.

After football career stumbles, Auburn's Harry Adams setting records in track

Adams has already posted several record times this year, including a world-leading 20.10 seconds in the 200 in April and a then-world-record 6.55 in the 60 meters in January.

"If I hadn't made a commitment to track, I wouldn't be at this level right now," he said in an interview last week before leaving for Iowa. "I'm glad I did."

Auburn track coach Ralph Spry said there are more athletes like Adams out there and he'd like to train them. But doing so requires a relationship between the football and track programs that doesn't yet exist.

The time by the junior from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. is the third-fastest ever run at the NCAA championships and tied the fourth-best in NCAA history.

Quote
In 2009, I charted the actual best of the best in football. I examined where all of the Pro Bowlers played high school football. A significantly high number, in fact, did come from the Southeast with a whopping 36 Pro Bowlers being from there. The most amazing part was that the state of Florida produced 16 Pro Bowlers by itself, just one less than the entire Midwest region had and 10 more than the entire Northeast yielded and the same as the whole West. (The Southwest had 12.) In truth, I'm not sure that means much more than what we already knew: The South, and Florida in particular, produces some great football players. Does it produces almost all of the best players? No, of course not.

Recruiting analysts, like the rest of us, tend to favor what they're most familiar with or see the most.

The biggest missing piece in the high school recruiting business is the guys who do the star system seldom have intangible insight into who these kids are: how sharp they are, how tough they are and how much they love football. The analysts rarely get to spend much time with or around the kid.

"That's what we do. Whatever we've got to do to get him to the game and get as many reps as we can, that's what we're going to do.

"He's done an awesome job, and he's fighting through a lot. Some weeks you watch him on Monday and Tuesday, you say there's no way he's playing. He just finds a way and he stays in it mentally and he's helping coach the other guys. When Saturday gets here we'll get what we can."

Auburn's Harry Adams has spent the last two years remaking himself back into a track athlete, shedding weight gained from football, changing his training routine, and remaking his mechanics to tap into the world-class speed he’s always possessed. (http://www.ncaa.com/news/trackfield-outdoor-men/article/2012-06-08/adams-return-track-paying)
 
Quote
Running into a stiff headwind Friday at Drake Stadium, Adams finished in a virtual tie for first in the 100-meter finals, finishing in 10.274 seconds – two thousandths  away from his first national championship. The wind must’ve felt like a parachute was tied to his back, because just two days earlier Adams scorched the track with a time rarely seen in Auburn’s history: His 9.96 led the preliminary field, broke the Auburn school record, and was only the second wind-legal, sub-10 second performance in the school’s history.

“It’s been a while since I’ve been running like this, so I’m happy to be competing at a national level,” said Adams, who after the race kept revisiting with awe how close he came to a championship. “I just missed out by a little bit.”

...

The scholarship offers came from a who’s who of college football: LSU, Auburn, Miami, Florida, Rutgers, North Carolina and Arkansas. The reports on scouting websites only fueled the hype, branding Adams the “sunshine speedster” and declaring him to have “serious speed.” Scout.com called Adams “one of the fastest people on the planet for his age group.”

But Adams said he had been playing football “just for the fun of it.” He said he chose Auburn because then-coach Tommy Tuberville, who recruited Adams to Auburn, pledged to allow him to run track in addition to football.

That arrangement didn’t work out, though, and Adams’s football career never got its footing. He spent two years on special teams and as a cornerback, making seven tackles and returning two kicks for 53 yards. In October 2010, new Tigers coach Gene Chizik dismissed him from the football team for undisclosed reasons. The news hardly made a blip after all the hype that was made on his way in.

So Adams visited Spry, who was aware of his reputation from high school. They discussed the possibility of him returning to track...

With Derrick Henry making the choice to reneg on his committment to UGa after his trip to Tuscaloosa, here is how the RB recruiting situation looks for Bama.

Yulee RB, Derrick Henry, 6-3, 440, 4.6, has Bama, UGa, and UT as leaders. He claims to have never played defense. One service ranks him as the number one athlete in the '13 class. His high school says that Saban is sort of recruiting him as a RB. Henry claims to only want to play TB.

Bama and UGA will go head to head with other RB targets, including Norcross TB Alvin Kamara, 5-10, 190, 5.8-rated.

Bama has a committment from yet another Georgian, Walton’s Tyren Jones, 5-8, 185, 5.8-rated.

NLR's Altee Tenpenny, 5-11, 200, 4.4, 6.0-rated is also committed to Bama.

Bama's current depth chart lists Eddie Lacy, Jalston Fowler, Dee Hart, and TJ Yeldon.

Bama also has Georgian Blake Sims, 6-0, 180, 4.5, 5.8-rated, Gordo RB Ben Howell, 5-9, 200, and Ralph RB Nick Tinker on the roster.

Nationally - Some big-time national guys such as Florida's Carlos Dunlap, Texas A&M's Von Miller, Ohio State's Cameron Heyward and Georgia Tech's Derrick Morgan panned out.  This class had some big busts too, including Sidell Corley and Ben Martin (Tennessee).  It also had some great stealls (sic) such as Jake Beguette (sic) (Arkansas) and Ryan Kerrigan (Purdue).

Quote
All eyes were on Crowell all the time in Athens. In Tuscaloosa, football players are gods. They are worshipped 365 days a year. Crowell would have been a main attraction. He wouldn't have been THE main attraction.

It's easy to say things would have been different for him if he made a different decision, and of course, Alabama also has had players with legal issues. You can't escape it in college athletics.

If you believe message board rumors, many believed Crowell's mother was wary of Georgia and its discipline problems.

In a story before national signing day, friend D.J. Jones said Crowell's family was very comprehensive with their decision.

"They have been straightforward with all the coaches and administrators on campuses and gotten all the answers they needed on everything pertaining to Isaiah," Jones said. "They have asked about what happens in discipline situations, in classroom situations, in on-the-field situations. They have known all along what this opportunity means, and they are trying to make sure absolutely everything has been considered. They have always known this was about more than football."

Alternate question: What if Crowell chose to manage his brand identity more like Knile Davis (without having to suffer the injury issues from an apparent calcium deficiency) and less like Crowell?

Rivals and 247Sports both consider him the No. 1 athlete prospect in the country. Scout.com rates Henry as a five-star prospect and the No. 5 running back in the nation.

Henry told 97.3 FM that it is "very important" to him to play running back, adding that although some scouting services list him as an athlete, all the recruiters he's talked to have told him he'll play running back.

Top Strongside DE's counting for SEC team rankings from '10

JR Ferguson  LSU  6.0
Alfy Hill      Bama 5.9
Jordan Allen LSU  5.9
Jalen Fields  UGa  5.8
Dexter Morant UG 5.8
Brandon Burrows UG 5.7
Thomas Ryan  VU  5.7
Wilson Love Bama 5.6

Brandon Burrows was the top ranked 3-star SDE going to an SEC school in the '10 class.  Yesterday he decided to transfer from UGa where he was switched to OLB in the 3-4.

“I came out of high school playing the defensive end position in a 4-3 defense which is what I truly love,” said Burrows, who was redshirted as a freshman in 2010 and missed the 2011 season due to a shoulder injury.”The coaching change here led to a 3-4 defense. I have worked with that transition but decided that I want to get back to playing defensive end. I think another program may give me the best opportunity to succeed at that. I’m eternally grateful for the opportunity Coach Richt has given me at UGA and for the fact that he gave me an unconditional release. I know I’ll be hard-pressed to find a group of coaches and players that will develop into the leaders and friends that I have known here in Athens.”

Think about how many guys in a 25-man signing class often have minimal impact in their college careers. If you have 15 significant contributors (guys who end up as starters at some point) and one of them ends up as a three-time All-American and No. 1 overall draft pick, that's a very good class. If Nkemdiche's buddies prove to be nothing more than special teamers, but are decent character guys and not headaches, and he is that special, he's going to be worth it . . . to certain schools because of how much better he may be that what they may line up there at defensive end instead. The tricky part here is the sense of entitlement that you may be signing up for by green-lighting this move.

Coaches now have to spend time, as Urban Meyer used to say, 'de-recruiting' once a celebrated recruit arrives in the program. How much could that affect your lockerroom? A lot. I know a lot of coaches who cringe at what they thought of a kid and how they wooed him only to regret it just a year later. Be careful of what you wish for, right? Yet, those same coaches still often do the same thing the following year regardless of their experience. Only Swinney can decide on whether Nkemdiche's make-up and that of his buddies is worth this kind of roll of the dice. He has a better feel for the kid than we do.

The sublot here is also intriguing: There are numerous examples of schools sweetening deals to land touted prospects, whether that means trying to bring on board the recruit's teammate, his brother, a high school coach or even his girlfriend. Who does the initiating of those details is murky. Does the school offer those things up, or is it the recruit making the college jump through the hoops?

You will find both five-stars and walk-ons on the Athlon Sports 2012 All-American team. In fact, 11 of the 24 names listed below were ranked as Athlon Consensus 100, or Top 100, prospects in the nation.

Here is how the best players at their position nationally ranked as high school recruits:

First Team Offense:
Alvin Bailey, OG, Arkansas (2009)
Bailey signed with Arkansas out of Broken Arrow (Okla.) High as a three-star offensive guard prospect. Rivals ranked him 27th nationally at his position and 13th in the state of Oklahoma.

Coaches will pressure prospects to commit, telling them their spot in the upcoming recruiting class comes with an expiration date.

Coaches will promise a player that he'll get a chance to play his preferred position in college, and that chance may consist of taking snaps for the first week of fall camp before the player is made to understand that he's better suited to a different position. Never mind that the player might've had a better chance to play his preferred position at a different school.

Coaches will woo and coo and wine and dine prospects and whisper sweet nothings in their ears, persuade and cajole and convince them to sign a national letter of intent and then, after national signing day, leave for another school. Looking at you, Tee Martin.

Coaches will game the system by signing more players than they have available spots on the 85-man roster, figuring that attrition, injuries, grades, etc., will allow them to get down to 85 by the deadline.

You can't jet high school kids to Nike's glorified NFL Combine in the summer and Under Armour's all-star game in the winter -- the players serving as unpaid spokesmen for the two massive shoe companies - - and complain when they start acting like entrepreneurs.

I hope Nkemdiche gets what he wants, within the rules. Why? There's a good chance that, wherever he goes, he's going to make some coach, program and school an awful lot of money.

Florida tight end A.C. Leonard, a former top-rated recruit who showed promise as a freshman, plans to transfer, coach Will Muschamp said today at Day 2 of SEC Media Days.

Leonard, Florida's only freshman to catch a pass in 2011, was arrested in February on a simple domestic battery charge. He served a six-week suspension before returning to spring practice at the end of March.

He received no guarantee to have a place on the team in the fall, though, and Muschamp made that clear during a lengthy opening statement to kick off today's festivities.

Top Strongside DE's counting for SEC team rankings from '07
Ben Martin Vols   6.1
Chris Strong Rebs 6.0
Sidell Corley LSU 6.0
Travian Robertson SC 5.9

Travian Robertson was a seventh round, 249th overall pick by the Falcons.

Strengths: Robertson is very good once he gets off the ball to immobilize offensive lineman and keep linebackers free. He is a leverage player who, though stiff, understands what it takes to get under a lineman and gain an advantage early. He is extremely strong and has surprisingly developed hand technique. His strength is obvious when he sheds linemen.

Weaknesses: Robertson is solely a hold-up lineman who does little else. He has a tough time getting in the backfield and reaching the ball carrier. He is slow off the snap and he doesn't create plays for himself. He is the type of player who could make a lot of money playing in the right scheme, but his statistical productivity likely will be extremely low at the next level.

According to NFL Network, the first-round draft pick could miss the start of the regular season because of a fractured bone in his knee.

It's possible that Kirkpatrick's pay could be withheld by the Bengals, according to an NFL.com report that said the rookie from Gadsden will fail the team's physical on Thursday and then will be placed on the physically unable to perform list.

It is not known how Kirkpatrick suffered the injury.

Kirkpatrick chose to skip his senior season at Alabama and in April became the 17th player selected in the NFL draft. In mid-May, he signed four-year contract worth $8.6 million, of which $7.84 million is guaranteed. (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/07/former_tide_star_dre_kirkpatri_1.html)

Lerentee McCray UF 5.9
Courtney Upshaw Bama 5.9 1st Team Coaches and AP All-SEC
Marcus Dowtin  UGa 5.9


Lerentee McCray has been through and seen a lot during his long Florida career.

The fifth-year senior linebacker/defensive end has seen the highs of winning a national championship and the lows of the school’s first losing record in conference play since the 1980s.

As he prepares to suit up for his final season in Gainesville, McCray wants to be a major component in what he hopes is a revival for the program in 2012.  (http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/47044/lerentee-mccray-ready-for-the-limelight)
 
Quote
He’ll certainly get his chance, as he fills in for the injured and ever-popular Ronald Powell at the Buck position. Powell, who was the nation’s top recruit two years ago, had his best spring as a Gator this year before suffering an ACL injury during the spring game that should keep him out for most of the fall. While McCray missed all of spring recovering from shoulder surgery, Florida’s coaches didn’t hesitate to name him as Powell’s replacement.

McCray is basically a bona fide hybrid. He began his career as an outside linebacker, but has since moved back and forth between linebacker and defensive end. He even got some action at Buck last year when Powell went down...

The former U.S. Army All-American participant and ESPN 150 member made the 50-plus-mile journey from Dunnellon, Fla., to Gainesville with lofty expectations. Along with just about everyone in his hometown, McCray expected to immediately compete for a starting spot and certainly expected a healthy amount of playing time as a freshman. But things didn’t exactly work out, as the 202-pound frosh played in just eight games, mostly on special teams, during the Gators’ national championship run. He played in just three games in 2009, receiving a medical redshirt.

Even with frustration mounting, McCray took time to learn from veteran playmakers such as Brandon Spikes, Ryan Stamper and Jermaine Cunningham...

“Jeff was at practice today and will be taking reps at practice Wednesday,” the statement from UF said.

The injury is to Driskel's left, non-throwing shoulder and apparently occurred over the weekend. The Gators scrimmaged Saturday and practiced again Sunday.

UF coach Will Muschamp said Monday the coaches had taken the non-contact jerseys off the quarterbacks to give them a better feel for pressure in the pocket. Muschamp said the defense was not tackling the quarterbacks, but thudding them.

Dan Mullen continually professes a staff can properly rate and assess the productivity of a recruiting class. (http://www.cdispatch.com/sports/article.asp?aid=18131)
 
Quote
"Nothing against Rivals and Scout and 247(sports), but we're not taking their evaluation," Mullen said Tuesday during his team's media day. "We're doing our own evaluation on these kids and whether it's your newspaper, whoever is evaluating them, we trust ours. We have our own five stars in our deal."

The 2009 class, which some of the internet recruiting services Mullen scoffs at had the Bulldogs incoming talent in the Top 25 nationally, currently has 13 members on this MSU team but it's the five National Football League draftees that have been the sell point nearly four years later.

Junior college transfers Pernell McPhee and Chris White along with 2012 NFL first round pick Fletcher Cox were part of the Bulldogs recruiting class and along with the likely future NFL picks of Johnthan Banks and Josh Boyd speak volumes to the eye for talent, especially in the state of Mississippi.

"There are kids who are very much overlooked in this state," Mullen said. "There are in a lot of places, but Mississippi seems like a big place for (overlooked talent) and we want to make sure we evaluate the kids in this state the right way and show that they can come here and represent their state."

A year later is UGa's "Dream Team" recruiting class as dreamy as imagined (http://www.ledger-enquirer.com/2012/08/16/2165197/georgia-football-a-year-later.html)
 
Quote
Ray Drew was asked an open-ended question: When was the last time he'd heard the term Dream Team?

There were five-star recruits, those who had heralded signings, with a watershed puppy-raising moment.But overall, the collective performance of the Dream Team has been kind of hazy.There have been immediate stars: Malc Mitchell was arguably the team's top receiver last year. Nose tackle John Jenkins was a key linchpin in a defense that became one of the nation's best.

Twenty-five players signed with Georgia on Feb. 3, 2011. (John Jenkins, a junior college transfer, signed three days later.) Two of those 26 players did not qualify academically, which is about normal. But five more ended up being gone from the program less than a year in: Most notable was Isaiah Crowell (Carver High), dismissed over the summer following his felony gun charge arrest. Chris Sanders, Nick Marshall and Sanford Seay were dismissed this past February, following a dorm room theft incident. And another, Quintavius Harrow (Carver High), left the team amid academic troubles.

"Statistics say that every year, I'd say out of every class, two people are going to get kicked out," S Corey Moore said. "But we're trying to say, forget statistics, and beat statistics. You guys stay as a group, hold yourselves accountable in everything you do."

The linked article details the status of the class members and their high school rating.

Landry said he's not sure of Bourque's plans for the future.

Crimson Tide has as many as five guys battling to carry one football.
Eddie Lacy, a junior, is the leader — so far.

He has the most experience after rushing for 674 yards last year, but that was as a backup to Trent Richardson, now with the Cleveland Browns. Junior Jalston Fowler (359 yards in 2011), true freshman T.J. Yeldon, redshirt freshman Dee Hart and true freshman Kenyan Drake remain in the hunt.

It has gotten so crowded that Fowler is spending part of practice at H-back, which is mostly a pass-catching position, even though Fowler hasn’t made a reception in his college career. Hart is working a little at returning kickoffs, but a decision on who does that in games is far from made.

Once-heralded Gator defensive backs trying to regain swagger

"I feel like I haven't lived up to expectations," said UF safety Matt Elam, the No. 2-rated safety in the country coming out of Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer High in 2010.

Elam and Cape Coral cornerback Jaylen Watkins, the No. 4-rated cornerback in the nation, and Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas cornerback Cody Riggs, the No. 11-rated cornerback, were part of the best recruiting class in the country in 2010.

Florida had the potential to have its most dominating defensive secondary ever.

The Gators kept stocking up talent in 2011. Heralded St. Thomas Aquinas corner Marcus Roberson, ranked No. 2 nationally; Miami Monsignor Pace safety Jabari Gorman, ranked 10th; and Pensacola Pine Forest CB Louchiez Purifoy, who was No. 11, all joined Florida's lineup. DeLand S De'ante "Pop" Saunders and Michigan CB Valdez Showers rounded out another strong crop of defensive backs.

UF did lose two of the top prospects from the 2010 class in DBs Josh Shaw (USC) and Jordan Haden (Toledo) to transfers, but the table was set for a pass defense that was supposed to be part of an impenetrable defensive force.

 Florida allowed 24.3 points a game against SEC foes.

 Florida ranked eighth in the 12-team conference in pass defense (185 yards per game).

DeAngelo Benton   LSU  6.0

Auburn receiver DeAngelo Benton has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of an undisclosed team rule.

Benton testified in the robbery trial of former Auburn player Antonio Goodwin earlier this year, saying he bought synthetic marijuana, which was legal at the time.

Benton's name was mentioned in the hearing of alleged Auburn apartment shooter Desmonte Leonard. Benton allegedly argued with Leonard before the shooting, police said. But witnesses told police Benton was not involved in the fight that led to the shooting that resulted in three deaths June 9.
 (http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index.ssf/2012/08/auburn_suspends_receiver_deang.html)
 
Deangelo Benton, from Bastrop, is a really good prospect at wide receiver.  The problem is that he has struggled to qualify academically.  He signed with LSU in 2007, but fell short of qualifying.  He spent a semester at Hargrave Military Academy, where he got so close to qualifying that he moved to Baton Rouge to be close to the team while taking a couple of correspondence courses to get him the rest of the way.  The problem is, it didn't work.  He didn't make it.  He won't be a part of the 2008 football team, but he has not given up.

According to The Advocate, Deangelo Benton is back in Bastrop, working with his old high school coach Brad Bradshaw, and both are committed to getting Benton qualified.

“I just think he’s got a lot of negativity, that a lot of people didn’t understand the whole situation,” Bradshaw said. “He screwed up. I’m not totally taking up for him, but sometimes we need to know the whole situation. I told him to come back to Bastrop because there’s not going to be any negative in my office. There’s no pressure and nobody’s pulling at him. I just want him to finish up what he started and go play college football.” (http://www.andthevalleyshook.com/2008/8/1/584397/struggling-recruit-deangel)


It is becoming obvious now that Les Miles was put in a very difficult position by people associated with Rueben Randle, people uncomfortable with Randle competing with Deangelo Benton.  Reading between the lines, it is clear he was told, "You can't have both."  Les Miles thought about it and decided that while Randle and Benton were roughly equal on the field, Benton was an academic risk and that because the 3 year time clock until he's eligible for the NFL started 2 years ago, he was a risk to go to the NFL at any time.

Les Miles made the decision to cut Benton loose. 

1.  What does this say about who's in charge? (http://www.andthevalleyshook.com/2009/2/6/750980/the-randle-benton-story-is)

Morris Claiborne LSU 5.6 Consensus All-American, 1st Team Coaches/AP SEC CB

Claiborne was the 15th ranked "athlete" signing with an SEC school in 2009.

Morris Claiborne impresses in NFL debut

The Giants went right at Claiborne on the first snap, throwing deep to Nicks down the left sideline. Barry Church, making his first start at strong safety, had help over the top and broke up the pass.

That was the only time the Giants tested the sixth overall pick downfield.  (http://espn.go.com/blog/dallas/cowboys/post/_/id/4697216/morris-claiborne-impressed-in-nfl-debut)

Recruiting rankings for Sept. 8, 2012 SEC Players of the Week

SEC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
TYLER RUSSELL  5.8  2009  MS State
Quarterback
MISSISSIPPI STATE
6-4 • 220 • Jr. • Meridian, Miss.

• Russell led Mississippi State to a 28-10 victory over Auburn in the SEC opener for both teams, State's first win in an SEC opener since 1999.
• He completed 20-of-29 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns without an interception.
• Russell led the Bulldogs on three touchdown drives in its first four second half possessions as State scored 21 unanswered points to seal the game.
• He completed passes to nine different receivers.


SEC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
JARVIS JONES  6.0 2009 WDE (originally went to USC)
Outside Linebacker
GEORGIA
6-3 • 241 • Jr. • Columbus, Ga.

• Jones had the second-most tackles for the Bulldogs (9), two sacks/TFLs, an interception, two forced fumbles and five quarterback pressures during Georgia’s 41-20 victory over Missouri.
• Jones now has 16.5 sacks over his last 16 games and 24 tackles for loss in that span and is leading the SEC in TFLs this season.
• Jones’ first career INT came midway through the final quarter with the Bulldogs up 27-20 as he managed to grab the pick and return it 21 yards to the Tiger 1-yard line.
• On Missouri’s next possession, Jones sacked James Franklin for a loss of 11 yards and forced a fumble that the Bulldogs recovered deep in Tiger territory.


SEC FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK
JALEN MILLS  5.6  2012 LSU
Cornerback
LSU
6-0 • 185 • DeSoto, Texas

• Mills, a true freshman, made his second straight start at cornerback for the Tigers and was second on team with 7 tackles to go with first interception of career in 41-3 win over Washington.

• He added one pass breakup as the Tiger defense dominated the Huskies, holding Washington to just 183 yards of total offense (26 rushing, 157 passing).

•  Washington’s longest drive was just 45 yards and outside of LSU fumbling the opening kickoff at its own 16-yardline, the Huskies never got inside the LSU 30-yard line the entire game.

Frequent substitution doesn’t seem to disturb highly recruited players.

“I know that’s one thing that Nick Saban sells to recruits,” Danielson said. “‘Yeah, we may have people coming back, but if you’re good enough to play, you will play. …’” (http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2012/09/role_tide_multiplicity_is_the.html#incart_river)
 
Quote
In its recent 35-0 victory over Western Kentucky, Alabama used 22 combinations of defensive linemen on 62 plays (including three WKU penalties). Keep in mind that starting nose guard Jesse Williams (mild concussion) did not play.

Including outside linebackers Xzavier Dickson and Adrian Hubbard lining up as defensive ends in four-man pass-rushing fronts, the Tide used 10 defensive linemen. Only two – junior defensive end Ed Stinson (36 plays) and senior defensive end Damion Square (35) – were on the field for more than half of Western Kentucky’s offensive plays.

David Oku       UT  5.9
Jarvis Giles     SC   5.9
Mike Gillislee   UF  5.8
Korvic Neat     OM  5.7
Warren Norman VU 5.6  Injured in 2011
LaDarius Perkins MS 5.6
Anthony Gulley AU  5.6

Oku has over 200 yards in two games for Gus after transferring from the Vols. He travels to his high school hometown to face Nebraska tomorrow.

Giles left South Carolina two years ago after three games into the 2010 season when he saw the future behind Lattimore. He then left Batesville native Charlie Strong's Louisville team in the summer of 2011 to attempt to move home to Tampa and play for USF. The Big East put the kaibosh on that and Giles is apparently out of football.

Gillislee is Florida's top tailback this year and in awhile. Big test Saturday where he tries to help Muschamp minimize the playing of Rocky Top.

Neat is getting to catch some passes in Freeze's offense. Will get a big test against Tejas DBs Saturday.

Warren Norman was the 2009 SEC Newcomer of the Year and broke Herschell Walker's all-purpose yards record. Vandy rode him too hard and he has been injured since '09. He is behind Zac Stacy on the depth chart currently while Vandy has struggled to get on track offensively.  May see Norman this week as VU takes on the Presbyters.

Perkins has averaged over six yards a carry and has scored 3 TDs for State.

Anthony (Gulley) Morgan is now a senior backup RB for Auburn. He was an SEC Honor Roll member in 2011.

Sentimore transferred to Tennessee.

It’s not every day that an opposing player calls out Nick Saban, especially with No. 1 Alabama coming to town in a few days.

Nonetheless, Tennessee defensive end Darrington Sentimore, who started his career at Alabama, didn’t hide his ill feelings for Saban when asked Tuesday about his former coach. (http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/53166/vols-sentimore-i-want-to-beat-saban)
 
Quote
Sentimore said he wishes now that he wouldn’t have signed with Alabama out of high school. He was indefinitely suspended by the Crimson Tide following the 2010 season after multiple off-the-field issues and then left the program to attend Gulf Coast (Miss.) Community College for a year.

"It's his personality," Sentimore said of Saban. "It's like some players ... he will see you in the hallway and he will walk right past you like he don't even see you. I don't like stuff like that. I ain't going to lie to you. I want this game more than any other game because I want to beat Saban.

"I have had this game on the calendar for a long time."

Sentimore went on to acknowledge that Saban runs a tight ship at Alabama.

"You can't get into no trouble. You can't get into the doghouse. You have to stay focused," Sentimore said. "If Saban sees you are focused, he will play you. Saban is on those guys. He's a defensive-minded coach. He's in the meetings and everything with the defense. It's all about the defense. You have to play for 60 minutes (against Alabama) because they are going to go hard and out-physical you. You have to play for 60 minutes.

"They want to out-think you and out-smart you. You have to study film and be on top of your game."

ESPN Blog: Florida in desperate need of receiving help

Florida might sport an impressive 8-1 record (7-1 SEC), but what it doesn’t sport is much of a threat to pass. There’s an abundance of speed and athleticism at receiver, but no complete packages. (http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/55019/florida-in-desperate-need-of-receiving-help)

Anyone feel sorry for Florida who faces the tough pass defense from Florida State.

Are lost recruits to blame for Auburn's lost season?

"What if Yeldon hadn't signed with Alabama?"

[Mike Dyer was entrenched at Auburn when Yeldon was being recruited.] (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/11/are_lost_recruits_to_blame_for.html#incart_river)
 
Quote
Brent Calloway flipped his commitment to Auburn during the U.S. Army All-American Game in January, just a month before National Signing Day. Calloway flipped back to Alabama just before Signing Day and has lined up at a number of different positions, including linebacker and H-back.

Would Auburn have flipped poll positions with Alabama if the Crimson Tide had not flipped these three elite recruits? Certainly not. The gap between these two programs is a lot wider than three players. But in a game that can hinge on just a few plays, it's worth considering what just a few more playmakers could have done to change the fortunes of Auburn's 2012 team.

[Column does not address a listing and the potential of who Auburn did sign and what happened to them.]

Found an article that listed Auburn's class rankings in recent years:

In spite of the restrictions, S.O.A.R. has helped Gene Chizik’s staff land 4th, 7th, and 10th-ranked recruiting classes, and appear on their way to helping bring in another T0p Five class in 2013.

Auburn Running Backs Coach and Recruiting Coordinator Curtis Luper calls Tigerettes and Tiger Hosts “a critical component to our success here at Auburn for many reasons.

“They are a valuable resource when it comes to sharing their personal experience here at Auburn not only with the recruit, but also with the recruit’s family,” Luper says. “We would not have the success we have had without the hard work and commitment of the Tigerettes and Tiger Hosts.” (http://www.thewareaglereader.com/2012/09/from-barfield-to-chizik-auburns-tigerettes-and-tiger-hosts-have-adapted-to-evolving-recruiting-culture/)

Kimbrow is just under 400 yds rushing playing behind Zac Stacy with 7.2 ypc. Most of his yards have come against the lighter weight non-conference opponents. With Stacy out, Kimbrow had 41 yds on 9 carries against Ole Miss.

Walton had a 51-yd TD reception against UTEP but otherwise has been lightly used by Ole Miss this season to-date.

Some of the changes from Pre to Post are tragic and others boneheaded.

Hamilton and Jones, Clowney and Banks among others, lived up to potential.

UGa's Ken Malcome ‘not too happy with situation’ at tailback

Malcome actually began the season as the starting tailback. The redshirt sophomore from Decatur has appeared in 10 of the Bulldogs’ 13 games, averaging 27.2 yards and 5 carries in those contests.

As Georgia prepares for its Jan. 1 date with Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl, Malcome is not sure what his future is with the team or in football in general.

“I’m not too happy with that situation,” Malcome said following Georgia’s practice Thursday afternoon. “But like I said to the coaches, I’m a player and I’m going to do what they tell me to. I’ve got two more years of football, then I don’t know. We’re going to see what happens. . . . I’m not sure at all what I’m going to do.”

Malcome has been down this road before. He actually left the team for one day in 2011 when freshman Isaiah Crowell emerged as the primary ball-carrier...

...
Torey Boozer       MU  5.6
Ka'Ra Stewart      MU  5.6
Levi Copelin        MU  5.6
Chaston Cuffee    MU  5.6



Missouri freshman safety Ka'ra Stewart was arrested yesterday on suspicion of possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana, University of Missouri police captain Brian Weimer said. Officers requested to search Stewart's dorm room at South Hall at 11:08 a.m. after detecting a suspicious odor. Stewart, 18, did not consent to a search. Officers obtained a search warrant and later found Stewart in possession of a small amount of a green leafy substance. As the search continued, police found four baggies containing the same substance, which later tested positive for marijuana.

Stewart was arrested and taken into custody at Boone County Jail. He posted $500 bail. Stewart, from O'Fallon, redshirted last season.

Athlon: How Alabama's 2012 Championship Team Ranked as High School Recruits

A.J. McCarron, QB (2009) AC100
The lanky passer was the No. 8-rated QB prospect in the nation and was the No. 97 overall player in the '09 Athlon Consensus 100. Bad chest tattoo aside, Bama landed a good one when it beat out Miami, Ole Miss and Oklahoma for the Mobile (Ala.) St. Paul’s passer.

Eddie Lacy, RB (2009) AC100
The burly runner from Geismar (La.) Dutchtown was the No. 5-rated player in The Pelican State. Lacy was the No. 93-rated overall player in the AC100 and was the No. 11-rated running back behind names like Trent Richardson, Cierre Wood, Lamar Miller and Christine Michael. He picked Alabama over Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Mississippi State. Interestingly enough, LSU didn’t offer the in-state prospect. He was a four-star prospect by Rivals.com.

Barrett Jones, C (2008) National Recruit
This Memphis (Tenn.) Evangelical Christian stud was the No. 1 prospect in the state of Tennessee (which included Dont’a Hightower), the No. 17 offensive lineman in the nation and the No. 146-rated player nationally regardless of position. He possessed offers from nearly everyone in the southeast but visited only Alabama, Florida and North Carolina. Jones helped Nick Saban sign the nation’s No. 1 class in 2008.

Recruiting: Ranking the SEC's Best Football Rosters
Athlon Sports analyzes how the rosters in the SEC stack up nationally.
H/T MrSEC: Athlon Sports takes a look at recruiting rankings and real-life wins. (http://www.athlonsports.com/college-football/recruiting-ranking-secs-best-football-rosters)

Quote
Recruiting rankings have their detractors. Yes, evaluating 16- and 17-year-old kids is an inexact science. No, star rankings aren’t the only thing that matters. Yes, leadership (e.g., Nick Saban) is more important than national recruiting rankings (See Auburn).

But using national team recruiting rankings to attempt to pinpoint how “talented” any given roster is can be an interesting and illuminating practice.

So what do the team recruiting rankings teach us about the SEC:
He who has the best players, wins the game

What happened to Auburn and Tennessee?
Since the 2008 football season, the Tigers and Vols have had a combined seven different coaches. They are two of the SEC’s biggest underachievers and one of the obvious reasons has been coaching, because both programs recruit at an elite level...

Bobby Petrino is THAT good
From 2009 to 2011, Arkansas was 29-10 overall and 15-9 in the SEC under Bobby Petrino. His recruiting classes in Fayetteville ranked no higher than seventh (2009) in the SEC recruiting rankings and cracked the top 20 nationally just once. Otherwise, Arkansas finished ninth or tenth in the SEC rankings every cycle. It proves that not only can a team win big in the SEC (10-11 wins) with a recruiting class ranked outside of the top 20 but that Petrino (aka, elite leadership) was the great equalizer. As soon as he stepped away, the 10th-best roster in the league played like it...

Evaluating how the 5-star recruits on Auburn's roster have panned out

Former five-star prospects Corey Lemonier, Michael Dyer and Christian Westerman could all have been part of the 2013 team, but Lemonier is an early entry for the NFL Draft, Dyer left after discipline problems and Westerman decided to transfer to Arizona State earlier this year.

With another National Signing Day approaching, here's a look at the six former five-star prospects on Auburn's current roster and how they've fared...

CLASS OF 2010

SHON COLEMAN, OT, OLIVE BRANCH (MISS.) HIGH

Where he stands: Coleman, ranked a five-star prospect by Rivals.com, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia shortly after signing his national letter of intent, beat the disease and then spent more than a year recovering to rejoin the football team. Back on the roster in 2012, Coleman didn't play, but the NCAA recently granted Coleman an extra year of eligibility, allowing him four years to play...


CLASS OF 2011

KIEHL FRAZIER, QB, SHILOH CHRISTIAN, SPRINGDALE, ARK.

Where he stands: Frazier, who was named USA Today's National Offensive Player of the Year and awarded five stars by Scout.com, played as a freshman, rushing for 327 yards and three rushing touchdowns as Auburn's Wildcat quarterback. Handed the starting job to open 2012, Frazier struggled mightily in five starts and eventually lost the job to Clint Moseley...


CLASS OF 2012
Shoulder injuries took out two potential starters on the O-line.

Title: The SEC's top signing classes over last 10 years in terms of NFL draftees
Post by: jbcarol on February 02, 2013, 12:21:25 pm
Crimson Tide's Class of 2008 included five players who were first-round NFL draft picks - Julio Jones, Marcell Dareus, Mark Barron, Mark Ingram and Dont'a Hightower. Two other members of the class were second-round picks - Terrence Cody and Courtney Upshaw - and three more members of the class are expected to be drafted this year - Barrett Jones, Michael Williams and Robert Lester.

The class includes one Heisman Trophy winner (Ingram) and one Outland Trophy winner (Jones). (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2013/02/from_signees_to_draftees_the_s.html)

Quote
2. Florida 2007

If there's one SEC class in the last 10 years that can come close to Alabama's 2008 class in terms of first-round talent, it's the group that Urban Meyer put together at Florida in 2007. Joe Haden, Maurkice Pouncey and Mike Pouncey were all first-round picks, and the class also included an eventual No. 1 overall pick - Cam Newton...

While it's too early to include classes from the last couple of years under this criteria, A&M's class of 2010 (Luke Joeckel, Jake Matthews, Damontre Moore) and a couple of other recent classes...

Paul Oliver. Kregg Lumpkin. Brandon Miller. Kade Weston. Those are not the four best players in Georgia football’s recent history. None of them was ever even a first-team all-SEC selection.But between 2003-05, those four were the highest-rated recruits who signed with Georgia. They were the only prospects rated as a composite “five star” by the recruiting services.

“If we haven’t improved, then we probably should be fired,” said Chad Simmons of Scout.com, who is in his ninth year as a recruiting analyst.

...

What does this mean? Basically, that being a five-star recruit in 2013 means a bit more than it did in 2008 -- and a whole lot more than in 2003.“We get a bad rap,” Schurburtt said of recruiting analysts. “If you look at it, look at the first-round draft picks in the NFL, these guys aren’t batting that higher a percentage than we are. Football is a tough game to evaluate, because so much is between the head and the chest. You can never climb into a guy’s head and see what he’s thinking, and you can’t climb in his chest and see how he’s feeling.”

http://www.macon.com/2013/02/02/2340653/recruiting-star-ratings-a-bit.html

There's one aspect for which the rating services cannot be held accountable.

If a five-star RB wants to sign to be one of the twelve RBs at Bama and doesn't pan out, it's not the services' fault.

Jordan Allen LSU  5.9
Jalen Fields  UGa  5.8
Dexter Morant UG 5.8

Reserve defensive end/outside linebacker Dexter Morant has left the school “due to academic considerations,” according to UGA.

The rising redshirt junior from Manning, S.C., never played in a game for the Bulldogs. He worked on the scout team but was often sidelined during a career that included two shoulder surgeries.

Morant made news before his first practice at Georgia in 2010 when he left the team but returned after four days.

Summary: The Rivals rankings predictions are about as good or slightly better than pre-season polls for top 45 teams or so.
I'm never going to say that star ratings have no meaning because over the years we know they often do have significant predictive power. However, at the same time we also know that it's only PART of the equation. There are so many variables as to whether or not a young man works out being a star as not. Heck, we also know of more than just a few instances where lower rated kids (3 and even 2 stars) have come out of no where to have amazing careers at a school and in more than a few instances even beyond. We've all seen kids who've torn up the playing fields in high school seemingly disappear once they got to the college level. Whether or not it turned out to be the academics, injuries, the particular system being run, the lack of effort/training, other distractions, disciplinary problems or whatever we all recognize there are (almost) countless pitfalls awaiting any young person in today's world. No doubt some coaches have a seemingly uncanny "magical touch" when it comes to picking out talent. Heck, even the mighty Nike Saban has found more than one or two "diamonds in the rough" (not that he's had to resort to many) and been able to develop them into something special. However, even the best evaluator isn't going to hit it every time because of one or more of those "uhh, ohh" factors mentioned previously. To some degree it will always be a "crapshoot" no matter how much time, effort, or talent is involved on all sides. That's one reason why you sign your kids, try to coach 'em up and take your chances...It's another reason why, in my opinion,  good staffs tend to earn everything they get paid.

Alabama makes it look so easy.

It needs a running back. It signs several. And not just any running backs, but some of the very best, according to recruiting services.

It seems contradictory to my theory that the only thing a running back wants more than the ball is a chance to start right away. Tennessee running backs coach Jay Graham believes the theory is still valid.

"I think all running backs want the ball," Graham said on signing day. "And they want to play early."

So how do you explain Alabama signing four running backs Wednesday? All of those backs surely will have to fall in line behind T.J. Yeldon, who was sensational last season as a freshman. Also, don't forget about consensus high school All-American Dee Hart or 240-pound Jalston Fowler, promising running backs who missed last season with injuries.

"The thing about running backs, they have confidence," said Graham, a former running back who didn't mind signing with the Vols when they were loaded with good running backs. "They have confidence they can compete if you've got four guys in a signing class or five guys."

Whether running backs are confident they can overtake the competition or patient enough to wait for playing time, national champion Alabama keeps stockpiling them. But Alabama isn't the only SEC program that gets the running backs it needs or wants.

Last season, LSU was so stacked with talent at running back that the two players who began the season as Nos. 3 and 4 on the depth chart both declared for the NFL draft after their junior seasons.

Georgia was in dire need of running backs in the last recruiting class. It didn't just sign one elite running back; it signed two. In fact, one Georgia running back actually helped recruit the other one.

Chris Low: there’s no reason to fret just because your school signed a quarterback that wasn’t on everybody’s list of blue-clippers.

Case in point: There were two quarterbacks among the three Heisman Trophy finalists in 2012, and neither one of those guys was a four-star prospect. (http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/60605/dont-sweat-those-three-star-quarterbacks)

Florida is now a little thinner at linebacker after losing freshman Alex Anzalone for the rest of the spring because of a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

"It’s a freak deal," Muschamp said. "It was in a tackling drill. He just got hit on it the wrong way. Disappointed for him but he’s going to be a really good player, so we’re going to be fine."

Anzalone enrolled in January and was backing up starter Antonio Morrison at middle linebacker.

Of the 12 SEC players drafted by the NFL on Thursday, 11 of them had a 4- or 5-star ranking before entering college.

http://www.mrsec.com/2013/04/sec-recruiting-notebook-stars-shine-during-drafts-first-night/


Of the 12 SEC players drafted in Thursday's first round, nine were selected as ESPN 150 prospects. And of those nine, six were ranked among the top 60 prospects nationally when they were going through the recruiting process in high school.

Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher was only ranked two stars (as a DE) coming out of high school, yet the Kansas City Chiefs took him with the first pick. Oklahoma offensive lineman Lane Johnson wasn’t ranked at all (as a QB), but went No. 4 to the Philadelphia Eagles.

It wasn’t until Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner went to the New York Jets at No. 9 that a five-star player was taken in the first round. In total, five five-stars were taken in the first round, according to Rivals rankings.

In just a small sample size it shows us that despite all of the resources dedicated to evaluating and scouting prospects, players can still slip through the cracks. Another thing to consider is it’s impossible to fully predict what a player will do once he gets to college.

Johnson, for example, weighed 202-pounds and was a quarterback in high school. Now he weighs 300-plus and is a left tackle. How could anyone have predicted he’d put on 100-plus pounds and completely shift positions?

SEC Five-Stars that would have been up for the draft this year:

Matt Patchan OT, UF:  After a rocky road at Florida, Patchan transferred to BC where he can play immediately in '13 having earned his degree

Omar Hunter DT, UF:  Signed as an undrafted free agent with the Steelers.

Richard Samuel, RB, UGa:  Parade All-American was described as a team player and solid citizen at Georgia.  He stared as a backup to Moreno, moved to OLB when needed but was moved back to TB.  He left disappointed and frustrated and is now willing to do anything for an NFL team.

Burton Scott, Vigor ATH, Bama: Described as the most surprising bust from Bama's '08 class, Scott played WR as a true freshman, redshirted to learn the defense, and lost his starting spot to D. Milliner. He transferred to USA.

D Milliner, CB, Bama: First round draft pick, 9th overall, an early departure from the '10 class.

Tyler Love, OL, Bama: 6-7 "Can't Miss OT" left with a degree and rings as one of Saban's out-placed players after the '11 season.

Daniel Lee Jesus Fluker, OT, Bama: 11th overall pick in 2013 draft.

Sheldon, DT, MU:  16th overall pick in 2013 draft.

Russell Shepard, QB, LSU:  Underutilized ATH for LSU, undrafted free agent signee by the Eagles.

Jelani Jenkins, LB, UF:  Drafted by Fins in the 4th round. Former star at Buster Olney Our Lady of Good Counsel

Janzen Jackson, DB, UT: One of Kiffin's recruits, after the armed robbery of the Pilot on Cumberland, Jackson landed at McNeese St. on his way to the CFL.

Christine Michael, RB, A&M: After landing in Sumlin's dog house and being buried behind Johnny Football for his senior and only SEC season, a less dinged Michael was drafted as final pick of the second round, one pick behind Eddie Lacy.

Chris Davenport, DT, LSU: Davenport was switched to the o-line, never found his role, and with a degree plans to play his final season in '13 with Tulane.

Branden Smith, DB, UGa: His spring break suspension was lifted so he could play against Mizzou in their SEC opener.  He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Bucs.

Nico Johnson, LB, Bama: 4th round pick by the Chiefs.

Darius Winston, CB, Hogs: Ended '12 season on the bench. Signed as an undrafted free agent wih the Bengals.

Sharrif Floyd, DT, UF:  First round pick.

Da'Rick Rogers, WR, UT: Escaped Bar Knoxville incident with a lawyer as a head coach, helped get same lawyer fired. He played last year for Tennessee Tech and signed as an undrafted free agent with the Bills.

Marcus Lattimore, RB, SC:  All-SEC performer with horrific knee injury was drafted by the 49ers in the 4th round.

Spencer Ware, RB, LSU:  One of the RB by committee choices for The Hat, Ware was selected in the sixth round.

Mike Dyer, RB, Auburn: Was still trying to get on with a college despite equalling or breaking some early Bo Jackson records.

Matt Elam, DB, UF: 1st round pick by the Ravens. One wag said UF could not risk to have a young person with a life threatening illness run for a TD in their cancelled spring game for fear that Elam would take his head off.

Much too early look at Top Dual-Threat QBs committed to SEC teams in '14 class

Will Grier         UF  6.0

Dual-threat quarterbacks are an option at Alabama, Nick Saban says

We have a system on offense,” Saban said Wednesday before teeing off at the Regions Tradition Celebrity Pro-Am at Shoal Creek. “You would like to always be able to recruit players that fit your system. But sometimes that’s not always possible.

“If there’s a great player or a great athlete somewhere that’s not quite the fit but he has a great ability to make plays, then I think it’s up to us to have the kind of offense that has enough flexibility that we can utilize those kinds of talents in a different way.”

Football teams don’t win because of the style of play, Saban said.

“You usually win because of people,” he said.

Saban then told a story about when he was a sophomore quarterback in high school. In a state semifinal game, his team faced a key fourth-and-10 play from the 20-yard line with 12 seconds remaining. He called all the plays.

“Coach called the last timeout,” Saban said. “I was just happy that he was going to have to call that play, so I run over and see my high school coach. I said, ‘What do you think we ought to do, Coach?’ And he says, ‘What do you think?’ He called me ‘Young Nicky’ all the time. I said, ‘I think you ought to call this play. That’s what I think.

“He said, ‘Look, I don’t care what play you call. You’ve got the fastest left halfback in the state and a three-time all-state guy playing split end. Just make sure one of the two of them gets the ball.’ So I call ’26 crossfire pass.’ I faked to the left half and threw it to the split end, and we won.”

The point of the story was simple.

“If you’ve got good players, you’ve got to get them the ball,” Saban said, “and you’ve got to have enough flexibility in your system to be able to do that.”

http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2013/06/dual-threat_quarterbacks_are_a.html

I thought the dual threat QB carried his head set equipment and the backup pro style QB carried the clip board and talked to the coaches in the box.

Early commitments have been valuable fixture of Nick Saban era at Alabama

Saban has made a habit of this ever since he formulated his first true signing class at Alabama.

The early decision-makers rarely receive much acclaim. The national TV cameras only seem to show up for the announcements that are made in the days leading up to National Signing Day.

That shouldn't be viewed as an indicator of how important those particular signings are.

how has Missouri's recruiting emphasis changed since it moved from the Big 12 to the SEC?

And, beyond that, how has the quality of the recruits the program is attracting changed?

Quote
He is expected to redshirt at MGCCC this year, play next year and, and if all goes well, enroll at Auburn at mid-year. If that happens, Smith would have three years to play three with the Tigers.

"He is here," Campbell said. "(Auburn coach Gus) Malzahn wants us to redshirt him for a year, then play him for a year."

The Press-Register 2013 Offensive Player of the Year was expected to participate in Auburn's quarterback race this fall along with Jeremy Johnson, Nick Marshall, Jonathan Wallace and Kiehl Frazier.

It's an example of one contribution to an impressive Team Recruiting Ranking leading to failure to perform on the field. Not necessarily the fault of the Recruiting Service(s) on this one.

Austin Long’s football career at Georgia is over

The beleaguered senior offensive lineman from Memphis has lost his academic eligibility (http://www.ajc.com/news/sports/college/georgia-lineman-austin-long-no-longer-academically/nZQCm)

Quote
Long ,22, came to UGA as one of the most highly-touted members of the 2009 recruiting class. He graduated from Briarcrest Christian [The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game] in Memphis as a consensus high school All-American and 5-star prospect as an offensive tackle. But he underwent two back surgeries before ever taking a snap for the Bulldogs.

Austin Long's father Tim was the offensive line coach at Briarcrest. Michael Lewis wrote that it was Tim Long who got the nerve to suggest to Hugh Freeze that they run every play behind Michael Oher's ample rear. Freeze liked the razzle dazzle. Lewis also reported that this was after Leigh Anne Touhy [Family Edition] chewed Freeze out after an early season loss to a rival.

http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/72360/drew-growing-into-five-star-billing

 Ray Drew doesn't like to use the word “doubt” when asked whether his belief that he could become Georgia's team leader in sacks, like he is today, ever wavered. But if there is a leading reason for the philosophical approach the former five-star prospect has taken toward his football career, it's the lack of instant results that marked his first two seasons in college.

“I wouldn't say doubt is the word, but I believe that everyone coming into college, unless you just come in and you're a freshman All-American and you're playing every snap from the time you get here until the time you leave, I believe that there is a wall that every player hits that they'll ask the question, 'Well did I make the right decision?' or maybe 'Am I as good as I thought I was?' or maybe 'I should have done something else,' ” Drew said...

After juggling outside linebacker and defensive end responsibilities in his first season and struggling to adapt to his role on the defensive line for much of his sophomore campaign, Drew is finally starting to touch the potential that ESPN talent evaluators saw in naming him as the nation's No. 13 overall prospect and No. 2 defensive end in the 2011 signing class.

Not that every Bulldog is necessarily happy about Drew's status as the team's sack leader.

“We can't let Ray lead us in sacks,” laughed outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins. “We gave them sacks away because we're coming off the edge and he steps up right into Ray's hands. But I can't discredit Ray. He definitely came a long way and he's always a fighter, he understands the plays and he understands what to do and he's just balling out there. But we can't let him have the lead by the end of the season.”

With only one sack to his credit so far, Jenkins has a lot of sacking to do if he is to catch up to Drew.

Bama DE Jeoffrey Pagan reminisces about his days as a 180-pound wide receiver

Pre-season All-SEC Second Team DE was a 6.0-rated SDE coming out of high school.

Pagan, who wears No. 8, revealed that he was a wide receiver a few years and many, many pounds ago.

"I was about a buck-80, 200 and I was No. 1," said Pagan, an Asheville, N.C., product who is now listed at 290 pounds. "I changed schools my junior year and, being a transfer, I couldn’t really pick the number that I wanted."

Through the rest of his high school career, Pagan wore No. 81. He said he vowed to return to single digits when he graduated to college ball, even though he was now packing on the pounds and playing on the defensive line.

Pagan originally wanted No. 2, but that was owned by linebacker Tana Patrick. No. 8 was open because wide receiver Julio Jones had moved on to the NFL.

"That was the only number that I saw on the roster," Pagan said. "I was like ‘that’s the number that I want.’"

Pagan shares his number with wide receiver Robert Foster. Earlier this month, Saban joked about his players' fascination with single-digit numbers...

Pagan said his teammates don't believe that he used to be roughly 100 pounds lighter and capable of running fly patterns.

Asked if he still has the hands to play the position, Pagan didn't hesitate.

"Oh yeah."

Sammy Khan, Jr. implicates Coach Sherman for A&M's young defense (http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/73099/why-am-has-so-much-youth-on-defense)

Quote
Aggies currently have 11 freshmen in their defensive two-deep depth chart. Two true freshmen (defensive tackle Isaiah Golden and linebacker Darian Claiborne) are starting.

In 2010, the Aggies signed seven defensive players and two more that were offensive players but eventually moved to defense. Defensive end Damontre Moore turned out to be a star, but declared for early entry into the 2013 NFL draft...

The 2011 class -- the final class signed by former head coach Mike Sherman -- brought 13 defensive players. Deshazor Everett, a cornerback with ability to play safety, is currently the defense's best player. Safeties Howard Matthews and Floyd Raven (despite his mom forging his signature on an LOI faxed to Houston Nutt) and linebacker Steven Jenkins also emerged as starters out of that group... Five players in that group are no longer with the program.

The 2012 class, the first one Sumlin signed after essentially two months on the job, had some holdovers that committed to the program under Sherman. It is a mixed bag...

Taking Stock of Bama's Recruiting: Running Backs

Graduating seniors: None.

Underclassmen: Jalston Fowler (Jr), Dee Hart (So), T.J. Yeldon (So), Kenyan Drake (So), Derrick Henry (Fr), Altee Tenpenny (Fr), Alvin Kamara (Fr), Tyren Jones (Fr).

Possible early NFL Draft entrants: None likely.

What Alabama needs: "Alabama isn't anticipated to lose a single running back from a group that currently features eight players who were all four-stars or better in high school. That doesn't mean Nick Saban will turn down a commitment from one of the nation's top backs, but it's likely he won't be stockpiling the position with four like he did in 2013." - Andrew Gribble

2014 commitments:
Bo Scarbrough, 6-foot-2/225 lbs, IMG Academy/Bradenton, FL
...
Top Targets:
Leonard Fournette, 6-foot-1/226 lbs, St. Augustine/New Orleans, LA
...
"Roc" Thomas, 5-foot-11/196 lbs, Oxford...

Down the line...: Alabama holds an early commitment from one of the top players in the state for 2015 in Vigor running back Desherrius Flowers...

Look no further than Missouri’s depth chart. If the SEC standings were based on teams’ accumulation of four- and five-star recruits, the Tigers would be fighting off Kentucky for sixth place in the Eastern Division. Instead, Mizzou’s evaluation process and player development have never produced better results. Just check out the collection of two-star recruits and overlooked prospects that contributed to Saturday’s win. Wideout L’Damian Washington. Left tackle Justin Britt. Left guard Max Copeland. Right guard Connor McGovern. Defensive end Michael Sam. Defensive tackle Harold Brantley. Linebacker Donovan Bonner. Cornerback Randy Ponder. Safety Matt White. None were widely recruited or recruited at all.

Georgia's "Dream Team" Class of 2011

Georgia was coming off a disappointing 6-7 season when the Dream Team signed with the Bulldogs. They had the nation's top tailback and No. 4 overall prospect in Isaiah Crowell, another five-star talent in Ray Drew, the No. 1 tight end in Jay Rome and a large group including Malc Mitchell, John Jenkins, Amarlo Herrera, Chris Conley and Damian Swann who would contribute soon after becoming Bulldogs.

Crowell was named the SEC's Freshman of the Year in his lone season on campus – he was dismissed in the summer of 2012 after a weapons possession arrest and is now starring at Alabama State – and the Bulldogs won their first SEC East championship since 2005.

They played in a second straight SEC championship game at the end of last season and fell only a few yards short of playing for a BCS title – with multiple Dream Team members playing key roles on a team that would finish fifth nationally.

“I think we've actually got a good resume being here,” said Swann, now in his second season as a starting cornerback. “We beat Auburn twice, we beat Florida three times, we've been to the SEC championship two times since I've been here. We're 1-1 in a bowl game. I think with the resume that my class has put together, I think it's actually one to look at, and I think we're continuing to improve it and make it better.”

Linebacker Ramik Wilson leads the SEC with 92 tackles, with Herrera's 79 stops ranking fourth. Drew is sixth in the league with six sack (sic). Wideouts Mitchell, Conley and Justin Scott-Wesley have all flashed star potential, although injuries have struck all three players this season. Center David Andrews, also a second-year starter, is one of the leaders of the Bulldogs' offensive line.

And junior college transfer John Jenkins is already in the NFL – the New Orleans Saints picked him in the third round of this year's draft – after solidifying the middle of the Bulldogs' defensive line in 2011 and 2012.

The Georgia journey ended early for several members of the class. Nick Marshall, Sanford Seay and Chris Sanders [all at Auburn] were all dismissed together and Crowell followed them out the door a few months later. Safety Quintavious Harrow left shortly after his former Carver-Columbus teammate and close friend Crowell.

In all, seven members of the 26-man signing class are either gone or never enrolled at Georgia at all (in the case of linebacker Kent Turene)...

The Picks: Picking All-SEC teams especially hard this season: I always hang on to the printout of the media’s ... http://bit.ly/1cvxt9Q

Quote
I always hang on to the printout of the media’s preseason All-SEC team. Not because it is easy to make fun of picks that didn’t pan out, but more as a historical document to show where our minds were back in July.

For example, running back Mike Davis of South Carolina wasn’t on the first three teams and will likely be on the postseason first team. Players such as Dominique Easley of Florida had their seasons cut short by injuries.

Mike Evans of Texas A&M was a second-teamer in the preseason, but anyone who doesn’t have him on the first team hasn’t watched any football this season.

Florida’s Loucheiz Purifoy was a first-team selection in the preseason, but he’s had an inconsistent year.

The really interesting (OK, it’s only interesting to me and only because it’s Week 12 and I’ve run out of things to write about) position is tight end where the SEC has kind of a void. Hunter Henry of Arkansas has 21 catches to lead all tight ends...

The Fence: Top ranked in-state players that did not land at Bama for their 2011 and 2012 championship seasons

In 2008, Bama wrapped up in-state 5-stars Julio Jones (NFL) and Burton Scott (bust).

5.9-rated Spain Park LB William Green made it to Florida and was not selected in the NFL draft after the 2011 season. He was rated ahead of Courtney Upshaw who did alright at Bama.

5.9-rated OT Antoine McClain starred at Clemson and is an OG for the Bills.

In 2009, Bama wrapped up in-state 5-stars DJ Fluker, Dre Kirkpatrick, and Nico Johnson.  Kirkpatrick was in the NFL and missed the 2012 championship season having earned a ring following the 2011 season.

Bama signed the rest of the Top 250 in-state recruits including Mobile QB AJ McCarron.

In 2010, Bama retained in-state 5-star Demarcus "Dee" Milliner.

CJ Mosley was a highly rated in-state prospect as was Jarrick Williams who got his first start on the 2013 team.

Each 5.8-rated, Bessemer 4-star DE LaDarius Owens, Opelika APB Corey Grant, who signed with Bama, and DE Craig Sanders will play in the 2013 Iron Bowl for Auburn.

Springville WR Jeremy Richardson signed with Auburn but did not qualify.

In 2011, the state's top ranked player, Brent Calloway flipped from Auburn to Bama and eventually ran afoul of the law.

5.9-rated S Erique Florence landed at Auburn and now plays for Troy.

5.9 Vigor WR Marvin Shinn transferred from Bama to USA.

5.9 Spanish Fort C Reese Dismukes will start for Auburn in the Iron Bowl.

5.8-rated Leeds S Jonathan Rose signed with Auburn, landed at Nebraska.

5.8 Hoover WR Jaylon Denson has played sparingly for Auburn. Out for 2013, knee.

5.8 Mobile WR Danny Woodson, Jr. signed with Bama, did not make it, and this month underwent heel surgery while playing for USA.

 
Looking ahead to 2012 and 2013, Hueytown QB Jameis Winston will be the first 5-star that got under the fence from Alabama.

The Fence Part Two: Top ranked in-state players that did not land at Bama from the 2012 class.

Jameis Winston, 5-star Hueytown QB would have likely played behind the game manager and been simulating Johnny Football and Nick Marshall for the scout team and handing off to Tenpenny.  He was joined at Florida State by 6.0-rated Mobile DE Chris Casher who had six solo tackles against Bethune-Cookman and 5.8-rated Prattville DT Justin Shanks.

5-star Daphne RB TJ Yeldon has performed up to expectations.

6.0-rated Bob Jones LB Reggie Ragland has been a reserve. He got notice for blasting Bama fans who were threatening PK Cade Foster after the Auburn loss.

5.9 Daphne LB Ryan Anderson was redshirted and recorded a couple of tackles in the Arkansas game (2013) as a career highlight.

5.8 Thomasville LB Tyler Hayes signed with Bama and was subsequently arrested for second-degree robbery.

5.8 Prattville QB Justin Thomas is a reserve QB for GaTech.

5.8 Birmingham Woodlawn LB Cassanova McKinzy was the lone Auburn in-state signee in the Top 250.  He had one solo and two assisted tackles against Bama.

The 13th consensus All-American in the 124-year history of the Missouri football program first came to Craig Kuligowski's attention when the coach was recruiting one of his teammates, an offensive lineman that ended up going to Houston.

The first Tigers player to win conference defensive-player-of-the-year honors since 1981 dropped opposing quarterbacks nine times over a four-game stretch and helped light a fire under a Missouri defensive front that went on to lead the Southeastern Conference in sacks.

The first Missouri defender to earn consensus All-America status since Roger Wehrli in 1968 was a two-star recruit from a high school of around 300 students who didn't seem a likely candidate for a monster season after unremarkable play over his first three years with the Tigers.

Yet here Michael Sam stands.

"It honestly doesn't matter what star you're ranked," Sam said. "As long as you have a good motor, you can play football and love the game, I think you can be one of the top people in the nation."

NEW ORLEANS -- Don't ask Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron about the star system for high school recruits.

He doesn't like it. Alabama's winningest quarterback also dislikes the celebrity status afforded teenagers in the recruiting process, and he implied that talent evaluators lack the expertise to properly judge high school players.

(McCarron video at link) (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2013/12/is_that_guy_a_five-star_alabam.html)

Quote
"Everybody's telling them how great they are," McCarron said Sunday during an interview session at the Sugar Bowl, "and then they come into college and it's a whole new ball game."

In an unrelated note, a service with high Bama membership just retroactively dropped McCarron to three-star.

Frustrated at first, Alabama RB Derrick Henry making moves in weeks entering Sugar Bowl http://ow.ly/s91hF

At 6-foot-3, 238 pounds, Derrick Henry was essentially unstoppable as a high school running back. The records and titles went on forever. So the assumption was he'd ease right in at Alabama a year after breaking the 51-year old national high school rushing record.

Only it's not that simple. Not at Alabama with that stable already in place.

A number of factors left Henry third on the depth chart this fall...

"A lot of uncertainly, sometimes, about what I'm supposed to do exactly," coach Nick Saban said. "When you go start back over when you have bowl practice, I think those guys relearn things and have a lot more confidence because it's like going through four or five days of camp. He's really played well."

The biggest problem came in the pass blocking game. Saban said he just never had to do that while running for 12,124 yards at Yulee High School in Florida.

Quarterback AJ McCarron barked at him in the season opener after missing a block that led to a sack.

"You have to learn pass protections," McCarron said Sunday. "When I change it, you have to be able to know what I changed it to and know what you have. ... Even in this game it might be tough for him, so I'll just have to help him out like I've tried all season long."

Expectations were high when he arrived early to participate in spring practices. He was the Maxwell Football Club national high school player of the year and the highest rated recruit in Alabama's No. 1 signing class.

"I'm going to come here and carry on the legacy," Henry said on NSD...


Wonder if Henry was pursuing a transfer?
Title: Star Ratings
Post by: Bkhardicars on January 01, 2014, 09:13:28 am
Now before I get bashed fro saying stars don't matter, I definitely believe it's easier to coach up a five star to greatness than a 2-3 star recuit.That being said, as I watched Duke push aTm around at the line of scrimmage last night, I went to the scout recruiting site and looked at their recruiting over the past few years.long story short, their roster was filled with two star recruits and average classes were 2.5 star ratings. I am aware they lost the game. Likewise, I didnt check it out, but I believe Mizzou has been behind us in recruiting as well. My take away? continuity in coaching both relative to turn over and consistency in the coaching of a "system" so to speak, can result in winning football. I believe there is hope for us. NOW, BB, go get you some men...preferably of the four and five star kind...

Looking back at the nine quarterbacks Nick Saban signed at Alabama http://ow.ly/t17bL

One per year is the norm for Alabama when signing quarterbacks.

With AJ McCarron earning the starting job as a sophomore and locking it down quickly, luring the top passers to Tuscaloosa became a challenge in recent years.

The addition of Jacob Coker from Florida State changes the dynamic of the upcoming battle to replace three-year starter McCarron.

Four of the first five QBs signed by Saban transferred before graduating. Having just three starters in seven seasons under Saban can make easier to look for playing time elsewhere.

2007 Nick Fanuzzi: transfer to Rice

2008 Star Jackson: transfer to GaState. Left after not winning starting job there.

2009 AJ McCarron: 2 National Titles in 3 seasons as a starter.

2010 Phillip Sims: Transfer to Virginia. Landed at Winston-Salem State.

2011 Blake Sims: Former RB was the Bama QB who had thrown a pass in FBS prior to 2014.

2011 Phillip Ely: Transfer to Toledo

2012 Alec Morris: Appeared in one game as RS-Fr

2013 Cooper Bateman: RS as Fr in 2013

2013 Parker McLeod: RS as Fr in 2013 and Scout team QB

2014 David Cornwell: Oklahoma QB plans to participate in Spring coming off a knee injury

Nick Saban keeps signing them, but AJ McCarron's no fan of all those 5-stars. (Kevin Scarbinsky) http://ow.ly/tbFYm

Quote
Funny thing about talent, though, as McCarron pointed out as he made the media rounds in New York during the run-up to Sunday’s Super Bowl. Talented players want to play, and when they don’t, they don’t always respond in a positive way.

“That's the kind of thing that ticks me off about recruiting and when these kids come in and they're five-stars and they expect to play right off the bat,” McCarron said in an interview with Jim Rome. “It's a little entitlement, and when they don't play off the bat, they get a little ticked off and they don't want to work."

That was an eye-opening observation from the only starting quarterback Alabama’s known for the last three years. It was a suggestion that, as good a job as Saban and his staff have done in recruiting the best high school players, they haven’t been quite as successful in de-recruiting them.

There’s a difference, and it’s not exclusive to Alabama. Coaches treat players one way when they recruit them, going to sometimes embarrassing lengths to show how much they want them, and those same coaches have to teach those same players how to be a part of something bigger than themselves when they arrive on campus.

McCarron offered a little more insight into Alabama’s struggle last season to get all of its high-profile recruits to buy into the system.

"We had a lot of young guys," McCarron said. "In the end, success was our killer. Too much success and a lot of young guys coming in who didn't know what it took to get back to that point to win. They thought we'd just show up and we'd win."

McCarron has been on a roll.

From last night: Too much of a good thing? Recruiting experts respond to AJ McCarron's 5-star 'entitlement' comments http://ow.ly/tgEXT

McCarron's storied Alabama career ended with two heartbreaking losses. His comments throughout the aftermath have suggested he was frustrated with a group of young players who didn't "buy in" and carried unwarranted "entitlement" because of their lofty high school recruiting rankings.

"In the end, success was our killer," McCarron, a four-star recruit out of St. Paul's in Mobile, said in a recent radio interview. "Too much success and a lot of young guys coming in who didn't know what it took to get back to that point to win. They thought we'd just show up and we'd win..."

"That wasn't five-star entitlement issues to cause that field goal to be returned. That's just something that happens in football," 247's JC Shurburtt said, referencing how Alabama lost in dramatic fashion at Auburn. "The Sugar Bowl, you want to talk about five-star freshmen, Derrick Henry just about bailed AJ McCarron out of that game."

ESPN National Recruiting Director Tom Luginbill said there was some validity to McCarron's assertions but didn't single out the highest-rated recruits.

5. UGa: The "Dream Team" has produced some good players (WR Chris Conley, DE Ray Drew, LB Amarlo Herrera), but it hasn't brought an SEC title -- unless you count the one signee Nick Marshall helped Auburn win in 2013.

Tracking the success of Nick Saban's first 11 JUCO signees after signing four in 2014 (http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2014/02/alabama_football_juco_transfer.html)

Quote
In his first seven signing classes, 11 players were added from JUCOs with eight seeing action in an Alabama uniform.

Three of those players — Michael Ricks, Quinton Dial and Deion Belue — signed with Alabama out of high school but had to attend junior college first.

Saban likes to recruit JUCO players for positions of immediate need for their maturity.

"The most important thing about recruiting junior-college guys to me is they want to go some place where they can play," Saban said in 2012. "If you have a need for them at that particular position, it's good for them, it's good for you, and I think it can really sort of complement the players that you have on your team."

2008

Terrence Cody

Position: NG

Hometown:  Fort Meyers, Fla.

JUCO: Mississippi Gulf Coast

At Alabama: Started immediately and made a major impact. A consensus All-American in his first season, Cody was the first dominant nose guard of the Nick Saban era...

Profiles of the other jucos at link above.

Which college can get away with recruiting 5-stars at SAME position year after year after year? I know one! http://wp.me/p3Xdrl-ky

This past year, UGA arguably signed the best duo of running backs in the nation with 5-stars Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.

The stellar recruiting crop may affect the Bulldogs with the state’s top running back for 2015, McEachern High School’s Taj Griffin.

Have recruiting rankings improved that much over time? The experts say yes. I spoke with national recruiting directors Tom Luginbill of ESPN, Scott Kennedy of Scout.com, and JC Shurburtt of 247 Sports. (http://www.sbnation.com/college-football-recruiting/2014/3/28/5526706/recruiting-rankings-coverage-websites-history-espn-scout-247sports)

One of the most noticeable differences between the rankings from the early beginnings of the industry (around the turn of the century) and now is the smaller percentage of elite players who fall through the cracks.

"I think we do a better job these days of finding the in-state talents who stay in the state, from-a-smaller-place kind of guy. Like a Darren McFadden, who picked Arkansas and is from Arkansas, and no one else really paid close attention to him [Scout ranked McFadden the No. 9 running back nationally]," Kennedy said. "Twenty years ago, maybe no one paid attention to him at all. Now, everybody is going to see a guy like Darren McFadden, even in a small state like Arkansas, even though he stayed home and didn't do the publicity tour like many of these guys have."

http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/82191/three-star-stars-in-the-sec

Chris Low: Below [link above] is a stab at the 10 best players in the SEC next season who were ranked as three-star prospects or lower by ESPN coming out of high school. We’ve listed them alphabetically.

Trey Flowers, DE, Arkansas, Sr.: Flowers had 13.5 tackles for loss last season, which leads all returning players in the SEC. He was ranked as the No. 108 defensive end nationally as a high school senior in Huntsville, Ala. He was originally committed to Georgia Tech but took a visit to Arkansas on the final weekend and signed with the Hogs.

Dak, QB, Mississippi State, Jr.: One of the top returning quarterbacks in the league along with Marshall, Prescott is a threat both as a runner and a passer and is poised for a huge season in 2014. A Haughton, La., product, Prescott was ranked as the No. 41 quarterback nationally coming out of high school. LSU offered after he had a big senior season, but Prescott stuck to his guns and enrolled early at Mississippi State that January.

The state of South Carolina has the highest per capita rate of producing NFL Draft picks during the last three years (2011-13) according to Jamie Newberg of Scout.com. The Palmetto State, which fittingly produced the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (Rock Hill, S.C./South Pointe and South Carolina), produced picks at a rate of 5.66/million. South Carolina has a population of 4.77 million. Louisiana was No. 2 with 5.38/million, followed by Florida 5.33/million, Georgia 5.14/million and Texas 5.09/million.  (http://247sports.com/Bolt/South-Carolina-is-highest-per-capita-in-producing-draft-talent-28764553)

SDS: Several of the past decade’s top SEC quarterbacks defied their recruiting ranking and prospered against some of the nation’s top defenses. We took a look at these quarterbacks and measured their accomplishments against how low they were ranked coming into the program. We ranked them 1 through 10, with No. 1 being the most impressive “defiance”. The “digital age” of recruiting rankings began in 2002, which is how far we went back... (http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/recruiting/sec-low-ranked-qbs-since-2002-johnny-manziel)

From Manziel to Chris Relf...

No Hog QBs made the top 10 on this list, though SEC Network's Greg McElroy did.

Lemonier chose Auburn coming out of Hialeah High in South Florida over in-state power Florida State after making official visits to LSU, Tennessee and Illinois in addition to the Tigers and Seminoles. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound end coming out of high school built a strong relationship with then-Auburn defensive line coach Tracy Rocker, and liked the idea of getting away from home without being too far. Lemonier was part of an Auburn recruiting class that included No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL draft Cam Newton, current Louisville running back Michael Dyer...

He entered the NFL draft following the 2012 season, and was selected in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft by the San Francisco 49ers, where he still plays.

Chris Culliver, No. 93 in 2007 class  (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/post/_/id/60969/100-days-100-players-no-93-chris-culliver)

Quote
Born in Philadelphia, Culliver moved to North Carolina and attended Garner Magnet High School in Garner, North Carolina. The standout wide receiver and return man in high school selected South Carolina over Florida due in large part because the Gamecocks recruited him as an offensive player throughout the process, and the Gators changed the tune from defensive back to wide receiver late in the process...

Culliver did in fact begin his career at South Carolina on offense starting one game as a freshman for the Gamecocks, but making his name early on special teams returning 34 kickoffs for 809 yards.

Culliver made the move to defense in 2008 as a sophomore. He started 12 games, recording 60 tackles and three interceptions. He bettered his sophomore campaign by being named second-team All-SEC as a junior following a 62-tackle season. He had his senior season cut short due to a torn pectoral muscle...

The versatile defensive back was a third-round selection (80th overall) in the 2011 NFL draft by the San Francisco 49ers, where he still plays.

Honorable mention: Charles Mitchell, No. 93 in 2008 class. Mitchell played in 37 games his first three seasons for Mississippi State in the secondary recording 188 tackles and four interceptions...

Dan Mullen was excited about his 2011 recruiting class while fans scoffed. Turns out he knew something others didn't. http://mississippistate.247sports.com/Article/Re-examining-the-2011-Mississippi-State-recruiting-class--32638206 …

Quote
After MSU put together a big season in 2010 when they had their most wins since 1999, fans and coaches alike felt like things were changing in a big way and recruiting would follow the success. That perception changed quickly as MSU would lose its two biggest commits in elite linebacker C.J. Johnson and defensive back Jermaine Whitehead. They would also lose a commitment from one of the nation’s top receivers in Nick Brassell and a top prospect Tobias Singleton.

It was doom and gloom across the message boards and water coolers of State fans everywhere but not at the signing day press conference. That was one of the first places where Mullen uttered the rhetoric that stars didn’t matter. While many scoffed, he couldn’t have been more right. Now he’s showing it.

MSU would sign 24 players in that 2011 signing class dropping in four 4-stars, 15 3-stars, four 2-stars and an unranked defensive lineman. It didn’t look good on paper...

4-stars: The highest rated player in the 2011 class was Stone High School’s Dee Arrington. The Dandy Dozen pick was one of the top safeties in the country and good enough that Mullen felt he should play on special teams as a true freshman. Arrington was forced into big minutes as a junior last year with injuries piling up in the secondary and even worked at linebacker. Unfortunately, rigorous injuries played a factor in cutting his career short but he’s finishing out his academic year on medical scholarship.

Defensive tackle James Maiden and wide receiver Devin Fosselman were a tough tandem out of Wilkinson County and expected to be major players for the Bulldogs. That was proven otherwise in practice and neither played a down in Starkville and transferred...

Jake Matthews, No. 90 in 2010 class  (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/102524/100-days-100-players-no-90)

Quote
Some had Matthews pegged to head to USC coming out of Elkins High in Missouri City, Texas, because his father, Bruce Matthews, and uncle, Clay Matthews, both starred for the Trojans. Jake was always more partial to the schools closer to home, providing Texas A&M and Texas strong chances to secure his commitment. The Aggies ultimately won out due in large part to Bruce Matthews have a strong respect for then Texas A&M head coach Mike Sherman as an offensive line developer that ran a pro-style offense. Matthews played center, guard and tackle during his high school career. He was a member of a Texas A&M 2010 class that included Luke Joeckel, Damontre Moore (3rd round NFL draft pick in 2013), Cedric Ogbuehi and Malcome Kennedy.

Matthews was selected in the first round (No. 6 overall) by the Atlanta Falcons in 2014, joining Joeckel (No. 2 in 2013) as back-to-back Top 10 offensive line draft selections for Texas A&M.

Honorable mention: Major Wright, No. 90 in 2007, and Stephon Tuitt, No. 90 in 2011. Wright was a third-round selection in the 2010 NFL draft out of Florida. He played at South Florida powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas in high school and selected the Gators over Miami and others.

Cann played at Bamberg-Ehrhart High School, just 60 miles from Columbia, South Carolina, making the Gamecocks the odds-on favorite despite former Bamberg-Ehrhart standouts Da’Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp having success at Clemson. He selected South Carolina in June 2009 over North Carolina, Clemson and Tennessee briefly having second thoughts in December 2009 before the hiring of offensive line coach Shawn Elliott in January 2010. Cann was a member of the Gamecocks top 10 class that included Marcus Lattimore, Connor Shaw, Kelcy Quarles, Ace Sanders and Victor Hampton.

Through his junior season, the three-time SEC Academic Honor Roll recipient has started 38 of 39 games for the Gamecocks. Cann is finishing up his senior season for the Gamecocks and is expected to be selected in the 2015 NFL draft in the first four rounds.

Luke Joeckel, No. 83 in 2010 class (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/tag/_/name/countdown-to-signing-day-2015)

Quote
Joeckel was an interesting recruitment in the 2010 class due to his twin brother, Matt Joeckel, and the brothers desire to play together in college. That left Texas Tech as the early favorite due to the Red Raiders having extended an offer to Matt, and the fact that their father, Dave Joeckel, played at Texas Tech. On Feb. 26, 2009, the recruitment of the Joeckels changed when then-Texas A&M head coach Mike Sherman offered Matt, which led to the duo committing the first week of April. Luke Joeckel was a member of a Texas A&M 2010 class that included Jake Matthews, Damontre Moore (third-round NFL draft pick in 2013), Cedric Ogbuehi and Malcome Kennedy.

Joeckel hit the field running for the Aggies as a true freshman due in part to enrolling in January 2010 and going through spring practice. He started all 13 games at left tackle, earning honorable mention All-Big 12 honors.

Joeckel's junior season at Texas A&M would prove to be his best, and consequently his last, in College Station. After again starting every game at left tackle, Joeckel was selected first-team All-SEC and was a unanimous All-American and winner of the 2012 Outland Trophy.

Joeckel was chosen with the second overall pick in the draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he has played both right and left tackle.

Alabama's five-star results product of more than recruiting five-star talent (http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/93640/alabamas-five-star-results-product-of-more-than-recruiting-five-star-talent)

Quote
We all know how Alabama football works. Coach Nick Saban falls out of bed and is surrounded by five-star players. No matter how far down the depth chart you go, the Crimson Tide is stocked with more talent than a Victoria’s Secret catalog.

That is the conventional wisdom, and it’s right as far as it goes. But there’s more to football than winning Signing Day, and if No. 5 Alabama’s 25-20 toppling of No. 1 Mississippi State proved nothing else, it’s that Saban and his staff are as good at developing talent as they are at finding it.

Take a look at the stars of the Crimson Tide’s victory Saturday before 101,821 suddenly hearing-impaired fans at raucous Bryant-Denny Stadium. We will get to fifth-year senior quarterback Blake Sims, who would win the FBS Most Improved Award if it existed. But Saban’s four national championships -- one at LSU, and three here -- have been built on defense.

His expertise is the secondary, and Saban’s assembly line has produced one high draft choice after another: Kareem Jackson to Javier Arenas to Dre Kirkpatrick to Mark Barron to Dee Milliner to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Saban’s secondaries are so good that it frees up the defensive front to go aggressively after the quarterback, which is why the head coach has such a nice collection of No. 1 rings.

But this season’s secondary, after safety Landon Collins, doesn’t have players who will be hugging it out with Roger Goodell. What it does have, like Sims, is a bunch of guys who have improved a lot since Clint Trickett of West Virginia torched them for 365 yards in the opener.

Take junior corner Cyrus Jones, listed at 5-foot-10, 194 pounds, who spent most of the day climbing up Mississippi State’s 6-foot-5 wide receiver, De'Runnya Wilson. The sophomore caught eight passes for 91 yards, but Jones kept the damage minimal.

Jones played wide receiver at Baltimore Gilman, and played wide receiver for the Tide two years ago. A year ago, Saban moved Jones to corner to plug a talent drain to the NFL. Jones became the best of an inexperienced group of corners, which is not to say he played to the standard set by his predecessors. But he hung in there, and now has arrived...

Quote
Vlachos was considered undersized coming out of high school by some at 6-foot-1, and initially committed to Alabama as a grayshirt over offers from West Virginia and Georgia Tech, with Florida State offering late in the process. That changed after the hiring of Nick Saban and the Seminoles' offer. Following a redshirt year and a second year in which he played as a reserve, the Mountain Brook High product started his final three seasons in Tuscaloosa, which included being the starting center on national championship teams in 2010 and 2012.

Quote
Tate came out of Snow Hill High in Newark, Maryland, as a nationally coveted running back. He committed to Auburn in July of 2005...

It was Tate’s final season at Auburn that sent him darting up NFL draft boards in Gus Malzahn’s offense rushing for 1,362 yards and 10 TDs earning second-team All-SEC honors.

Following his career at Auburn, Tate was selected in the second round (No. 58 overall) by the Houston Texans in the 2010 NFL draft. Now with the Minnesota Vikings, Tate has more than 2,000 rushing yards in his NFL career.

Reid was one of the nations most highly sought safeties in the 2010 class out of Dutchtown High in Geismar, La. While programs such as Stanford and Tennessee extended offers to Reid, he committed to long time favorite LSU early in the process in March of 2009. Reid’s father was a three-time All-America hurdler at LSU, and is a member of the LSU Athletic Hall of Fame. Reid was a member of LSU’s Top 10 class in 2010 that included Tyrann Mathieu, Ego Ferguson, Tharold Simon, and Brad Wing.

Reid's last season at LSU would prove to be his best. In addition to being voted team captain by his teammates and again being named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll, Reid was named first-team All-SEC and first-team All-American after a junior season that included 91 tackles and two interceptions...

Reid was selected in the first round, 18th overall, by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2013 NFL draft where he is in his second year as a starter. Reid was selected to the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl as a rookie.

Hurd battled shoulder injuries in high school, but managed to set the single-season record in the state of Tennessee as a junior before missing his entire senior season following shoulder surgery. He picked Tennessee over Florida and Ohio State in a recruitment that was never close after the hiring of Butch Jones in Knoxville. Hurd has been an impact player for the Vols in 2014 with more than 700 yards rushing, as well as over 900 all-purpose yards. He posted 100 yards or more rushing in wins against Georgia, South Carolina and Kentucky.

Despite difference in recruiting rankings, Alabama and Missouri battling for SEC championship  http://ow.ly/F7hLT [Includes a chart highlighting the recruiting differences]

Quote
Saturday's SEC Championship game between the two schools is marked by a perennial Signing Day champion in Alabama against one that normally finishes near the bottom of conference recruiting rankings in Missouri.

But the Tigers (10-2, 6-1 SEC) are back in Atlanta for the second straight year.

Saban, a longtime friend of Pinkel's who he played and coached with at Kent State, said he didn't know how much validity recruiting rankings actually have. The 247Sports composite rankings show that Alabama (11-1, 7-1) has signed 18 5-star recruits since 2010 while Missouri has signed just one - receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, who is no longer with the program - in 2012.

"Sometimes I don't know what comes first in recruiting rankings, the cart or the horse," Saban said. "When a guy gets recruited by what I'm going to call high‑profile programs, he gets ranked higher.  That's where I question the validity of how accurate some of those things may be."

Pinkel said he learned his system from the late Don James, who he coached under at the University of Washington and at Kent State with Saban. He tweaked it a little bit, always trying to make it better.

"We just do what we do," Pinkel said. "I think it would be hard to say that we haven't had a little bit of success doing it our way."

Pinkel: "I've never, ever looked at a recruiting ranking since I've been coaching. It would be hard to say we haven't had success."

Saban: "I don't know how much validity recruiting rankings actually have."

But Saban also says MU's consistently low rankings and on-field success are symptomatic of the job Pinkel & Co. do developing players.

Quote
Jenkins was one of the most highly coveted defensive end prospects in the country coming out of Harris County High in Southwest Georgia. Following official visits to Tennessee, Auburn, Florida, Alabama and Georgia, the long-armed edge talent picked the home state Bulldogs...

The outside linebacker in the Bulldogs' 3-4 moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore. He responded with 45 tackles and 12 tackles for loss earning All-SEC second team honors from the conference coaches.

This season, as a junior, Jenkins again took the next step for Georgia. In 12 starts to date, the Under Armour All-America Game alumnus has 66 tackles, 22 quarterback hurries, nine tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks for the top 25 Bulldogs, and is firmly on the NFL draft radar.

Nick Chubb, No. 63 in 2014 class  (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/tag/_/name/countdown-to-signing-day-2015)

Quote
Chubb was one of the most heavily-recruited running backs in the 2014 class out of Northwest Georgia. He selected Georgia over Auburn and South Carolina in June of 2013 in a recruitment that wasn’t close. Chubb was a member of the Bulldogs top-10 2014 class that featured Lorenzo Carter, running back Sony Michel, return man Isaiah McKenzie, tight end Jeb Blazevich, defensive tackle Lamont Gaillard and quarterback Jacob Park...

Chubb’s freshman season has been nothing short of sensational. He became the go to back after the suspension of Todd Gurley, and hasn’t looked back with seven straight games of 100 yards or more, averaging 163 per game in his last five SEC games. Through 12 games, the SEC Offensive Freshman of the Year has 186 carries for 1,281 yards and 12 touchdowns plus an additional 213 receiving yards and two scores. He’s scored a touchdown in nine consecutive games.

Should Chubb stay healthy, he’s a near lock to be a high NFL draft choice after the 2016 season.


Honorable mention: Max Tuerk, No. 63 in 2012 class, and Curt Maggitt, No. 63 in 2011 class.

Maggitt has been a productive player when healthy for Tennessee. The high school teammate of NFL first round selection Matt Elam and Florida State tight end Nick O’Leary at Dwyer High made 56 tackles in 11 games as a true freshman and 30 in nine games as sophomore before missing his junior season due to injury. The West Palm Beach native has rebounded in 2014 making 43 tackles, 14 tackles for loss and 11 sacks in 12 games this season.

The bruising running back with excellent feet in the hole has twice been an All-SEC team selection and is expected to enter the 2015 NFL draft. His brother, James Davis, played at Clemson and in the NFL for three seasons.

Jarvis Jones, No. 59 in 2009 class  (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/post/_/id/62530/100-days-100-players-no-59-jarvis-jones)

Quote
Jones was a nationally recruited outside linebacker coming out of Columbus (Georgia) Carver High. He ultimately selected USC after officially visiting Florida, Georgia, LSU and Texas in addition to USC. Jones was a member of the Trojans' No. 4-ranked class that included No. 1 overall prospect Matt Barkley, Devon Kennard and T.J. McDon

Jones played on special teams and as a reserve linebacker for USC as a true freshman. He appeared in eight games before the USC medical staff diagnosed him with spinal stenosis.

That diagnosis led to a transfer back home to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. After being cleared to play for Georgia, Jones sat out the 2010 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Jones became one of college football’s top defensive players in 2011, starting every game and recording 70 tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss and 13.5 sacks to earn All-SEC First Team honors.

Jones would again take home All-SEC honors in 2012, being tabbed the SEC Defensive Player of the Year after tallying 85 tackles, 24 tackles for loss, 14.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles and an interception in 12 games. He became the first Georgia linebacker to win the Jack Lambert Trophy as well.

Following his standout career, Jones was selected No. 17 overall in the 2013 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Honorable mention: Todd Kelly, No. 59 in 2014 class. Kelly was a lock for Tennessee coming out of Knoxville (Tennessee) Webb School with his father, Todd Kelly Sr., having starred for the Volunteers. The ball-hawking safety played in 12 games as a true freshman, including three starts...

In the 100 days leading up to signing day 2015, RecruitingNation will be looking back at our ESPN recruiting rankings from 2006 to the present and count down the best player of the past 10 years at each ranking position, No. 100 to No. 1.

Cam Newton, No. 58 in 2007 class  (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/tag/_/name/countdown-to-signing-day-2015)

Quote
Newton came out of Westlake High in Atlanta as one of the most highly coveted quarterbacks in the country. He ultimately chose the University of Florida in September 2006 over LSU, Mississippi State, Oklahoma and Ole Miss due in large part to the success of then Florida quarterback Chris Leak, and the scheme fit under then head coach Urban Meyer...

Newton injured his ankle in the 2008 season opener, which led to a redshirt season. This would be Newton's final season in Gainesville after he was arrested for theft of a laptop computer from another Florida student. Even though the charges were dropped, Newton left the Gators' program.

In 2009, Newton led Blinn Junior College to the NCJJ national title, quickly becoming the most highly sought after junior college quarterback in the country.

After choosing Auburn over Mississippi State, Newton's 2010 season on The Plains...

Newton was a member of three national champions teams in college: Florida 2009, Blinn Junior College 2009 and Auburn 2011.

Newton was selected No. 1 overall in the 2011 NFL draft by the Carolina Panthers. He is a two-time Pro Bowl selection with more than 14,000 NFL career passing yards.

He is recovering from a car accident yesterday.

Alex Collins, No. 57 in 2013 class  (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/105460/100-days-100-players-no-57-alex-collins)

Quote
Collins recruitment played out like a Lifetime movie or that of a future "30 for 30."

Collins made an immediate impact at Arkansas. As a freshman in 2013, he rushed for 1,026 yards and four touchdowns on 190 carries, including four games of 100-yards or more. Collins was the first freshman in SEC history to begin his career with three straight games of 100-yards or more rushing. Following the season, he was named SEC Freshman of the Year by the Associated Press, as well as SEC All-Freshman Team by the leagues coaches.

This season, Collins again went over 1,000 yards, finishing with 1,024 yards and 12 scores on 187 carries, which included a career-high 212 yards in a blowout win at Texas Tech in September.

Collins will likely be a candidate to enter the NFL draft after the 2015 season.

Honorable mention: Cyrus Gray, No. 57 in 2008 class. Gray attended DeSoto High South of Dallas, where he was high school teammates with current NFL players Von Miller and Tony Jerod-Eddie, all three of whom attended Texas A&M. Gray topped 1,000 yards as a junior for the Aggies. Following his career in College Station, he was selected in the sixth round, No. 182-overall in the 2012 NFL draft by the Kansas City Chiefs, where he remains.

Yeldon was a heated recruitment between Auburn and Alabama coming out of Daphne High. Yeldon originally committed to Auburn in June of 2011, but had a change of heart in December flipping to hated-rival Alabama...

Yeldon is expected to forgo his final season of eligibility in Tuscaloosa and enter the 2015 NFL draft, and be selected in the first three rounds.

Adrian Hubbard, No. 54 in 2010 class (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/post/_/id/62759/100-days-100-players-no-54-adrian-hubbard)

Quote
Hubbard was one of the most interesting prospects in the 2010 class out of Norcross High in Georiga. The 6-foot-7, 227-pound defensive end was basketball focused until his senior season, but once the word got out, the colleges evaluated the senior riser and began offering. Alabama would eventually win out in early December of 2009 over South Carolina and Florida State. Hubbard was a member of the Crimson Tide’s No. 1-ranked 2010 class that included C.J. Mosley, DeMarcus Milliner and Blake Sims.

After a so-so 2013 season that featured three sacks in the last three games to go with 33 tackles, Hubbard decided to forgo his final season in Tuscaloosa and enter the draft after playing on back-to-back BCS national championship teams of 2012 and 2013.

Hubbard went undrafted in the 2014 NFL draft, but signed a free-agent contract with the Green Bay Packers where he is on the active roster.

Honorable mention: Jeoffrey Pagan, No. 53 in 2011 class, and Demarcus Robinson, No. 53 in 2013 class. Pagan signed with Alabama out of Asheville High (N.C.) and went on to appear in 32 games in three seasons with 12 starts. After 61 career tackles and 3.5 sacks for the Crimson Tide, Pagan chose to forgo his final year of eligibility in Tuscaloosa. Pagan was selected in the sixth round, No. 177 overall, in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans. Robinson was a back-and-forth recruitment between Clemson and Florida before deciding on the Gators. After an underwhelming freshman season in 2013, the Peach State native became one of the top receivers in the SEC in 2014 hauling in 47 passes for 774 yards earning All-SEC honors.

Quote
Green came out of Tampa Catholic High as a nationally coveted offensive tackle prospect. It looked like Green would end up at Tennessee until head coach Lane Kiffin left Knoxville for USC. Green ultimately chose Florida over USC capping a terrific class for the Gators that included Matt Elam, Sharrif Floyd, Ronald Powell and Dominique Easley.

Green enjoyed a fully healthy season as a redshirt senior in 2014, making 11 starts while playing both right and left tackle, setting himself up to possibly being selected in the 2015 NFL draft.

Honorable mention: Gunner Kiel, No. 52 in the 2012 class. Kiel signed with Notre Dame (after flipping from LSU) out of high school, but transferred to Cincinnati after redshirting in 2012. Kiel started 12 games for the Bearcats this season, throwing for 3,010 yards and 30 touchdowns.

Quote
Cooper came out of Miami Northwestern as a relatively unheralded prospect until his senior season after being limited because of a junior-season injury. He committed to Alabama in September 2011 over Miami and Florida State in a decision that would prove to be a huge loss for the hometown Hurricanes. Cooper was part of the Crimson Tide’s No. 1-ranked class that included Landon Collins, T.J. Yeldon, Cyrus Jones, Denzel Devall, Reggie Ragland and many others.

Cooper has been arguably the best player in college football in 2014. Headed into the inaugural College Football Playoff, Cooper has 115 receptions for 1,656 yards and 14 touchdowns... Cooper is expected to forgo his final season of eligibility and would almost certainly be a top-10 selection in the NFL draft this spring.

Honorable mention: Gerod Holliman, No. 49 in 2011 class; and Aaron Hernandez, No. 49 in 2007 class.

Morgan Moses, No. 48 in 2009 class

Honorable mention: Channing Ward, No. 48 in 2012. Ward selected Ole Miss over Auburn and LSU out of Aberdeen High in Miss. It was a huge in-state win for the Rebels over SEC foes. Ward has been a solid player in the Ole Miss defensive line rotation for three seasons, recording 74 tackles and 3.5 sacks.

Konrad Reuland, No. 46 in 2006 class

Honorable mention: Curtis Grant, No. 46 in 2011 class, and Chris Jones, No. 46 in 2013 class.

Jones is a promising player for Mississippi State with high NFL draft potential after the 2015 or 2016 season.

Michael Goodson, No. 45 in 2006 class

Honorable mention: DeAngelo Tyson, No. 45 in 2008 class, Malcolm Mitchell, No. 45 in 2011 class and O.J. Howard, No. 45 in 2013 class. Tyson played at Georgia and is now in the NFL, while Mitchell is currently at Georgia and has a chance to be drafted following the 2015 season. Howard, a sophomore tight end at Alabama, has the opportunity to be selected high in the NFL draft in the next two seasons.

Adams was long considered a smart pick to sign with home state Arkansas coming out of Central Arkansas Christian in Little Rock, but the USC Trojans made quite the push before the playmaker announced for the Razorbacks on signing day in 2008...

...Adams chose to return for his senior season. He delivered on the field in 2011 to the tune of 54 receptions for 652 yards and three scores. It was his all-around play that impressed the most. Adams totaled 1,112 all-purpose yards including four punt return touchdowns earning All-American and All-SEC first-team honors.

Adams finished his career at Arkansas with 3,352 all-purpose yards, 2,410 receiving, and 24 touchdowns.

Adams was selected in the fourth round, No. 104-overall, by the Carolina Panthers in the 2012 NFL draft...

Gabbert was nationally recruited coming out of Parkway West High drawing many of the nation's top head coaches to Ballwin, Missouri -- including Alabama’s Nick Saban. Gabbert initially committed to Nebraska, but ended up flipping to home-state Missouri after the Cornhuskers fired Bill Callahan.

Gabbert would again top the 3,000-yard mark as a junior, which would be his last in Columbia. He threw for 3,186 yards and 16 scores in 2010 to finish his three year career at Missouri with 6,822 yards and 40 touchdowns.

Gabbert was selected No. 10 overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2011 NFL Draft. He has thrown for 4,395 yards and 23 touchdowns in what has been an up and down start to his pro career. He is currently with the San Francisco 49ers.

Quote
There wasn’t much suspense with Landry’s recruitment coming out of Lutcher High (La.). He picked LSU in January of 2010, and while he flirted with the idea of visits to Auburn and a couple of other schools, took his only official visit to Baton Rouge in January of 2011. He was a member of an LSU 2011 class that included Odell Beckham Jr., La’el Collins, Anthony Johnson, Jermauria Rasco, Trai Turner and Zach Mettenberger.

Landry appeared in all 14 games as a true freshman with one start. He finished the season with four receptions for 43 yards, as well as being a top tackler on special teams.

As a sophomore, the 6-foot, 195-pound Under Armour All-America Game alumni played in 13 games with one start. Despite coming off the bench, the sure-handed Landry led the team in receptions with 56 and touchdown catches with five.

Landry’s junior season would prove to be his best, by far. In 13 games, he hauled in 77 passes for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns earning All-SEC second team honors by the league coaches. His standout season was good for No. 4 all-time at LSU in single-season receptions and the No. 3 all-time single-season in receiving yards. He teamed with Beckham Jr. to give the Tigers a pair of 1,000-yard receivers.

Landry chose to forgo his final season in Baton Rouge to enter the 2014 NFL draft, where he was selected in the second round, No. 63 overall, by the Miami Dolphins. He has made 79 receptions for 703 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie.

Honorable mention: Jonathan Bullard, No. 37 in 2012 class. Bullard signed with Florida over Clemson out of Shelby (N.C.) Crest High, and has been a part time starter for the Gators in his three seasons in Gainesville...

A.J. McCarron, No. 36 in 2009 class  (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/post/_/id/63456/100-days-100-players-no-36-a-j-mccarron)

Quote
While McCarron seemingly flirted with Miami (FL) in January of 2009, there was not much suspense with his recruitment. The standout quarterback at Mobile (Ala.) St. Paul’s committed to Alabama in May of 2009 over the Hurricanes, Oklahoma, Auburn, Florida State and a number of others where he would join former St. Paul’s teammate Mark Barron in Tuscaloosa. McCarron was the only quarterback in the Alabama 2009 class that included Chance Warmack, D.J. Fluker, Trent Richardson, Eddie Lacy, Dre Kirkpatrick, James Carpenter, Anthony Steen, Nico Johnson and Quinton Dial.

McCarron redshirted his first year in Tuscaloosa, but picked up a national championship ring.

McCarron was named the starter in 2011 after beating out Phillip Sims.

McCarron was selected in fifth round, No. 164 overall, by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2014 NFL draft where he is currently the third-string quarterback.

Hunter was a two-sport star coming out of Ocean Lakes High in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He had offers from nearly all of the nation's best programs before selecting Tennessee over Florida after de-committing from LSU in January of 2010 due to closeness to home. The chances for the Volunteers went way up when then-LSU receivers coach D.J. McCarthy left Baton Rouge.

Hunter returned healthy in 2012 and did become one of the most feared wide receivers in the country, catching 73 passes for 1,083 yards and nine TDs and earning All-SEC second-team honors from the leagues coaches.

Hunter decided following the 2012 season to forgo his final season of eligibility at Tennessee and enter the 2013 NFL draft. He left Knoxville having caught 106 passes for 1,812 yards and 18 TDs in his college career.

Hunter was selected in the second round, No. 34 overall, in the 2013 NFL draft by the Tennessee Titans. He has 46 receptions for 852 yards and seven TDs in two NFL seasons.

The 2013 season would prove to be James' best for the Volunteers. He started all 12 games, earning All-SEC second team honors by various media outlets.

He ended his career at Tennessee with 49 career and consecutive starts, with all of them being at right tackle. His 49 career starts set a record at Tennessee for an offensive lineman.

James was selected No. 19 overall in the 2014 NFL draft by the Miami Dolphins. He started every game as a rookie in 2014.

Morris coached Snead in high school in Texas. The former Clemson OC recently sat down with FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman for a special episode of the Audible.

Lattimore was a hard-fought recruiting victory for South Carolina over Auburn coming out of Byrnes High in Duncan.  Lattimore was off to a solid start in 2012 with 662 yards and 11 TDs in eight games, but again would suffer a serious knee injury against Tennessee that ended his career at South Carolina. Lattimore retired from the NFL this past November having never had the opportunity to carry the ball in an NFL game.

He committed to South Carolina in October of 2008 after making official visits to Alabama and Tennessee in addition to the Gamecocks... Gilmore was part of a 2009 class for the Gamecocks that included teammate DeVonte Holloman, Alshon Jeffery, Chaz Sutton, Jimmy Legree, Damario Jeffery and D.J. Swearinger among others.

As a sophomore in 2010, Gilmore started all 14 games and took home All-SEC first-team and All-America third-team honors after posting 79 tackles, three sacks and three interceptions. Gilmore was also a member of the Fall Academic Honor Roll.

The 2011 season was more of the same for Gilmore. He was again selected All-SEC first-team after making 46 tackles and picking off four passes in 13 starts. He helped lead the Gamecocks to an 11-win season and a top-10 finish in the AP poll.

Following the season, Gilmore decided to forgo his final season of eligibility in Columbia after starting all 40 games of his college career.

Gilmore was selected No. 10 overall in the 2012 NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills. He has started 39 of 41 games he has played in in three seasons.

Where are they now? How Alabama’s top-ranked 2011 signing class lived up to expectations http://ow.ly/HD00B

Quote
Bama was coming off its relatively disappointing 2010 season that included three losses, but ended with a 49-7 pounding of Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl. By early February, it wrapped up another No. 1 recruiting class, according to both Rivals and 247Sports.

For Alabama, there were 21 high school seniors who signed in the 2011 class and seven already have degrees from Alabama. Of that group of 21, eight played all four years in Tuscaloosa or remain for a fifth after a redshirt. There were also eight who transferred and one (Brent Calloway) who was dismissed from the program. Four others ― Cyrus Kouandjio, HaHa Clinton Dix, Jeoffrey Pagan and Vinnie Sunseri ― left for the NFL after three seasons.

The class also included four junior college transfers. Quinton Dial and Jesse Williams became starters on the defensive line before both were drafted in 2013. Receiver Duron (son of Cris) Carter never gained his eligibility and eventually landed in the Canadian Football League. Offensive lineman Aaron Douglas passed away in May 2011 from an accidental drug overdose after participating in spring practice in Tuscaloosa.

Here's a player-by-player look at the 2011 Alabama signing class with star-ratings and positional rankings according to 247Sports' composite of recruiting services. Players who graduated from Alabama are marked with *... (via link above)

5-stars
Ha Ha and Cyrus were 1st and 2nd round NFL draft choices after their junior seasons. DePreist was the defensive playcaller.

Quote
Murray was an accomplished quarterback coming out of Tampa Plant. In April 2008, Murray picked Georgia over childhood favorite Florida due in large part to his comfort level and relationship with Mark Richt and Bobo. Murray was part of a Top 10 Georgia class that included Orson Charles, Marlon Brown, Abry Jones, Zach Mettenberger and Branden Smith.

After redshirting in 2009, Murray started 13 games in 2010, passing for 3,049 yards and 24 touchdowns, earning All-SEC Freshman Team honors from the league's coaches.

The 2013 season was another record-setting one for Murray. He became the first quarterback in SEC history to throw for 3,000 yards or more in four straight seasons. He made 11 starts as a fifth-year senior before tearing his ACL in the second-to-last regular-season game. He passed for 3,075 yards and 26 scores prior to the injury.

Murray finished his career at Georgia with 13,166 yards passing and 121 TDs against 41 INTs, along with 16 rushing scores. He left Athens as the SEC's career passing touchdown leader and SEC career passing yards leader. He finished his career with a 35-17 record as a starting quarterback.

Murray was selected in the fifth round with the No. 163 overall pick by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Where are they now? How Auburn's 2012 signing class, Gene Chizik's last, has fared so far http://s.al.com/O36HXdD

Quote
The 2012 group enters its senior year on campus with seven players who had to leave the program for one reason or another out of the 21 who originally signed, although one has now returned as part of the 2015 class in the person of Jovon Robinson.

Unlike the 2011 signing class, which was dotted with big-name players, Auburn's 2012 class has produced only seven regular starters so far, although a few stars have emerged. A few of the three-star prospects, namely Alex Kozan and Jonathan Jones, have developed into stars, and several -- led by Avery Young and Cassanova McKinzy, in addition to Kozan and Jones -- have a chance to be NFL Draft picks in the future.

Zeke Pike, quarterback (12), Dixie Heights High, [Edgewood], Kentucky

The supposed centerpiece of the class, Pike was arrested in the summer of 2012 after enrolling early and dismissed before ever taking the field for Auburn. Pike transferred to Louisville as a tight end, but he left after one season and was recently arrested again in Kentucky.

Pike enrolled at Murray State for the 2015 spring semester.

Where are they now? How Alabama's No. 1 recruiting class from 2012 performed so far. http://ow.ly/HWMJo

Quote
Looking back at the 2012 football recruiting rankings, a few things are obvious.

First, Texas' second-ranked class didn't quite meet expectations. Florida State made a real move with the group ranked as high as No. 3. But Alabama, owner of the No. 1 class according to two of the three major rankings, likely made the biggest scores.

Of the 23 who signed out of high school, 16 are still with the program. Three ― Landon Collins, Amari Cooper and T.J. Yeldon ― entered the NFL draft. Eddie Williams and Tyler Hayes were kicked off the team for their involvement in a 2013 campus robbery. Offensive linemen Caleb Gulledge was medically disqualified and tight end Kurt Freitag no longer appears on the roster.

But unlike the 2011 signing class, there haven't been any transfers so far. Eight players left from the 2011 class... Five starters return for 2015 with several more in line to compete for top jobs this spring and fall.

4-stars

-- WR Amari Cooper (6): The Miami product was easily the top producer from this crop. Cooper turned pro after the 2014 season in which he rewrote the Alabama record book. It started with 1,000 receiving yards as a freshman including the game-winning catch in the SEC title game against Georgia. Injuries limited him to 736 yards on 45 catches in 2013, but Cooper exploded under Lane Kiffin's leadership last fall. His 124 receptions broke an SEC record while the 1,727 yards were second in league history. The Biletnikoff Award winner finished third in the Heisman voting and was a unanimous All-American...

Patrick Peterson, No. 8 in 2008 class

Coming out of Blanche Ely High in South Florida, the nation's top cornerback prospect went by the name Patrick Johnson. Originally a Miami (Fla.) commit, he opened up his recruitment during his senior year and ended up coming down to Florida, Florida State and LSU with the Tigers winning out. Johnson was a member of a 2008 LSU class that included Deangelo Benton, Jordan Jefferson and others.

Peterson’s junior season would be his best. Not only did Peterson tally 33 tackles and four INTs in 11 games, but he also totaled 1,106 yards and two punt return touchdowns. He took home a number of awards following the season, including the Thorpe Award, Bednarik Award, first-team All-American, All-SEC first-team and SEC special teams player of the year.

Peterson entered the 2011 NFL draft following his junior season. He was selected No. 5 overall by the Arizona Cardinals, and has been selected to the Pro Bowl each of his four seasons in the league.

Green came out of Summerville High as one of the top prospects the state of South Carolina has ever produced. While many of the nation's top programs recruited him, including Florida State, Notre Dame and Florida, the Under Armour All-America Game alumnus made his commitment to childhood favorite Georgia early in the process. Green was part of a 2008 Bulldogs top-10 class that featured Toby Jackson, Brandon Boykin, Ben Jones, Cornelius Washington and DeAngelo Tyson.

Berry came out of Creekside High in Fairburn, Georgia,. as the most highly coveted cornerback prospect in the 2007 class.

Berry was a member of a top five class for the Volunteers.

As a junior, Berry made 83 tackles, seven tackles for loss and two INT’s in 12 starts. He was once again tabbed All-SEC first team, unanimous All-American and took home the prestigious Jim Thorpe Award as well as being a finalist for the Lott Award and Bronko Nagurski Award.

Berry chose to forgo his final season of eligibility following the 2009 season. He left Tennessee with 38 starts in 38 games played, 241 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 14 interceptions.

Berry was selected No. 5 overall by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2010 NFL draft. He was selected to the Pro Bowl three of his first four years before being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in early December.

When Recruiting mixes with Twitter: A wild, weird new world of fan-athlete interaction: http://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/college-football/article/Twitter-blurs-boundaries-between-recruiting-6055730.php?t=f40ef8c69cb087cae0&cmpid=twitter-premium … via @HoustonChron

Quote
Thanks to a wave of Internet enhancements and instant access via smartphones and tablets, those who follow recruiting have turned the practice into an interactive sport, with otherwise law-abiding citizens unknowingly becoming NCAA rule-breakers...

"It's a little bit creepy, especially when you've got 40-year-old men doing this," Fresno State coach Tim DeRuyter  said. "Fans can look up these kids so easily, that's the scary part. I think back to that old 'Saturday Night Live' skit with William Shatner speaking at a 'Star Trek' convention. He tells all the people who are dressed up, 'Get a life!' Recruiting has become that for so many people - they live on Twitter to see what these kids are going to do.

"On the other side of it, that passion speaks to how popular the college game is year round. But you want to ask people to tap the brakes a little bit. I don't know how you do that."

Last week, DeRuyter visited a coach and a recruit at a California high school and later dropped in at a neighboring school for the same purpose.

A prospect approached him at the second school, with what had become news from DeRuyter's first visit, thanks to Twitter.

"He told me he knew I had been seeing so-and-so," a bemused DeRuyter said. "He had read it on social media - and it had only been 15 minutes since I'd been at the other place."

Secrets, for the most part, are few and far between when it comes to recruiting in 2015.

Hargreaves III was considered the top cornerback in the country in 2013 class coming out of Wharton High in Tampa. The son of Arkansas linebackers coach Vernon Hargreaves picked the Florida Gators in July 2012 over USC, Clemson, Miami and a host of others after considering more than 50 offers. He headlined a top 10 Florida 2013 class that included Kelvin Taylor, Keanu Neal, Daniel McMillan, Roderick Johnson, Marcell Harris Alex Anzalone, Demarcus Robinson and others.

Entering the 2015 season, the pure cover corner is expected to be named to almost every preseason All-American team, and he's very likely to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

Honorable mention: Dominique Easley, No. 3 in 2010 class. Easley battled knee injuries at Florida, but was still dominant at times. He was selected No. 29 overall in the 2014 NFL draft by the New England Patriots.

Cyrus Kouandjio, No. 3 in 2011 class. After starting starting his last two seasons at Alabama, Kouandjio chose to forgo his final season in Tuscaloosa and was drafted in the second round (No. 44 overall) in the 2014 NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills.

Dorial Geen-Beckham, No. 3 in 2012 class. Green-Beckham played two seasons at Missouri before being dismissed from the program. Following a transfer season at Oklahoma, he decided to forgo remaining eligibility and enter the 2015 NFL Draft where he is expected to be drafted in the first two rounds.

Cam Robinson, No. 3 in 2014 class. Robinson started all season as a freshman at Alabama, and is considered a top-notch NFL prospect following the 2016 season.

Alabama in line for 5th straight recruiting title, but Nick Saban's no fan of rankings. http://ow.ly/IpPZB

Quote
...for a second straight year, Alabama enters signing day atop all three rankings based on the known commitments. 247Sports says Alabama has six 5-stars, Scout has that number at five and Rivals says four. Of Scout's top 100 players, 10 are committed to Alabama.

The group includes the nation's No. 2 quarterback (Blake Barnett), No. 1 receiver (Calvin Ridley) and No. 2 safety (Deionte Thompson).

Saban isn't big on these rankings.

"I say this every year, but recruiting is not an exact science," he said on signing day 2012. "No one knows for sure how these players are going to develop in the future."

He illustrated that point with an example the year before that.

"Just because you pick the best puppy dog with the biggest feet that doesn't mean he's going to grow up to be the best hunting dog," Saban said in 2011 after signing the No. 1 class according to 247Sports and Rivals. "A lot of these young players are very good. They are very talented. They've had great success as high school players but they are going to make a tremendous amount of improvement, almost as much as the time they were freshmen in high school to the time they are a senior in high school, they're going to do the same thing in college.

"I think the challenge for us is to help these players develop so that they can have success not only on the field but in the classroom and to continue to develop personally, academically and athletically."

Fans can see the end result in the recruiting rankings, but rarely get to find out the why. Intent on offering transparency, AL.com spoke with national recruiting experts at the four major services to find out what goes into the recruiting rankings process and why they all differentiate...

The great thing about National Signing Day is that, no matter what you want the narrative to be, you can make the "data" fit. #NoScoreboard

In the 100 days leading up to signing day 2015, RecruitingNation will be looking back at our ESPN recruiting rankings from 2006 to the present and count down the best player of the past 10 years at each ranking position, No. 100 to No. 1.

Julio Jones, No. 2 in 2008 class  (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/post/_/id/65833/100-days-100-players-no-2-julio-jones)

Quote
Jones came out of Foley High in Alabama as a near lock for the Crimson Tide, but Alabama received a battle from Florida, Florida State and Oklahoma before Jones announced for the home-state school on Feb. 6, 2008. Jones was part of a star-studded Alabama class that included Mark Barron, Terrence Cody, Marcell Dareus, Dont'a Hightower, Mark Ingram, Barrett Jones, Courtney Upshaw, Robert Lester, Michael Williams, Brad Smelley, Damion Square and Tyler Love.

As a freshman in 2008, Jones became the favorite target of quarterback John Parker Wilson. In 14 games, all starts, the Under Armour All-America Game alumnus caught 58 passes for 924 yards and four touchdowns, as well as totaling 956 all-purpose yards. He was named the SEC Freshman of the Year and All-SEC second team by the league coaches, and Freshman All-American by numerous publications...

Jones chose to forgo his final season of eligibility in Tuscaloosa and enter the 2011 NFL draft. In three seasons at Alabama, he caught 179 passes for 2,653 yards and 15 TDs, and totaled over 3,000 all-purpose yards.

Jones was drafted No. 6 overall by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2011 draft. He has been selected to a pair of Pro Bowls, including following the 2014 season.

Honorable mention: Percy Harvin, No. 2 in 2006 class. Harvin starred on a pair of Florida Gators BCS National Championship teams before he was selected No. 22 overall in the 2009 NFL draft by the Minnesota Vikings. Manti Te'o, No. in 2009 class (sic).

Here's what the first ¶ begins with:

All the major recruiting services -- ESPN, 247Sports, Rivals.com and Scout.com -- have their own set of rankings. They are a good indicator of future success for college football programs

What can you glean from a contradiction like this ^?

In the 100 days leading up to signing day 2015, RecruitingNation will be looking back at our ESPN recruiting rankings from 2006 to the present and counting down the best player of the past 10 years at each ranking position, No. 100 to No. 1.

Jadeveon Clowney, No. 1 in 2011 class  (http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/tag/_/name/countdown-to-signing-day-2015)

Quote
Clowney came out of in Rock Hill, South Carolina, as arguably the best prospect the state had ever produced...

Clowney chose to forgo his final season of eligibility in Columbia as everyone expected. He finished his three seasons at South Carolina with 47.0 tackles for loss, 24 sacks, and a school record nine forced fumbles.

Clowney was drafted No. 1-overall by the Houston Texans in the 2014 NFL draft. He again battled injury most of his rookie season, accounting for just seven tackles.

Honorable mention: All six prospects ranked No. 1-overall that are NFL draft eligible have been drafted. That list is: Myron Rolle, No. 1 in 2006 class. Joe McKnight, No. 1 in 2007 class. Da'Quan Bowers, No. 1 in 2008 class. Matt Barkley, No. 1 in 2009 class. Ronald Powell, No. 1 in 2010 class, and Clowney. Mario Edwards Jr., No. 1 in 2012 class will be selected in the 2015 NFL draft, and Robert Nkemdiche and Leonard Fournette are locks to be drafted high in future NFL drafts.

So how accurate are recruiting rankings and what can we do to improve them? Football Study Hall’s Bill Connelly takes a look... -- but of course no subjective evaluation standard is perfect. It’s an interesting subject to explore.  (http://www.footballstudyhall.com/2015/2/10/8012747/college-football-recruiting-rankings-strengths-flaws)

Quote
Thoughts on college football recruiting rankings, their imperfections, and how they could be improved in the future.

There's a difference between flawed and fatally flawed

If you use nothing but recruiting rankings as a guide, you can come up with a reasonably accurate assessment of who will and won't be good from year to year. Or at least, you'll have a nice starting point for such an assessment. Obviously using only recruiting rankings in 2014 would have left you aiming way too high on teams like Florida and Michigan and way too low on teams like TCU and Oregon. But generally speaking, it'll get you a certain distance down the road.

Where the two camps -- "recruiting rankings are lifeblood" vs. "recruiting rankings are overrated/flawed" -- differ is in the development angle, of course. There are, after all, three pieces to basically any team sport: talent acquisition, talent development, and talent deployment. The middle is the toughest to talk about because, among other things, it involves things we can't see.

Recruiting and recruiting rankings tell us about the acquisition portion, and stats and our own eyeballs tell us about deployment. But development allows for teams like those on the 538 list of overachievers to make up ground on those who acquire a higher level of talent through acquisition.

Whether it's the "find the big-boned Northern European types and get some excellent running backs to run behind them" approach of Wisconsin or the "find great athletes and teach them a position" approach of someone like Missouri, certain programs/coaches have been particularly solid at making up ground through development.

The question, then, becomes this: what should recruiting services do about that? ...

32 former 5-star recruits are available in this year's draft. 12 of them are considered to be potential 1st-rounders: http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2015/02/landon_collins_1_of_a_dozen_5-.html …

Quote
Twenty six players from the 2011 recruiting class earned five stars from Rivals.com. Nine of those players are available in this year's draft, but offensive tackle La'el Collins of LSU is the only one that is considered a potential first-rounder.   

Three of the five-star recruits from the 2011 class were first-round picks in the 2014 NFL Draft: Jadeveon Clowney of South Carolina went No. 1 overall to the Houston Texans, Sammy Watkins of Clemson was selected by the Buffalo Bills with the No. 4 pick and the Green Bay Packers took Ha Ha Clinton-Dix of Alabama with the No. 21 overall pick in last year's draft.   

Four of the 26 were previously first-round picks: Alabama's Dee Milliner went No. 9 overall to the New York Jets in 2013, while Florida's Sharrif Floyd and Matt Elam went with the No. 23 pick to the Minnesota Vikings and No. 32 overall to the Baltimore Ravens respectively. The Gators' Dominique Easley was selected by the New England Patriots with the No. 29 overall pick in 2014.

SEC 5-stars (* denotes potential first-round pick):

2012 five-star recruits:
    Landon Collins, Alabama*
    Dante Fowler, Jr., Florida*
    Dorial Green-Beckham, Missouri*
    D.J. Humphries, Florida* 
    Trey Williams, Texas A&M
    T.J. Yeldon, Alabama

2011 five-star recruits:
    La'el Collins, LSU*
    Ray Drew, Georgia
    Dee Hart, Colorado State (via Alabama)
   
2010 five-star recruits:
    Michael Dyer, Louisville (via Auburn)
   
2009 five-star recruit (of the 33 five-star recruits in this class, four were previously first-round picks):   
    Andre Debose, Florida (NCAA granted him sixth season after injuries)

Good read from @jcshurburtt on winning with 3-star talent http://ow.ly/LoDIr

Recruiting Moneyball: Optimizing 3-star talent

I am going to say something honest here that most of my peers in the recruiting industry will not tell you- it is a myth that you can’t win at the Power 5 level in college football recruiting classes with up to 90 percent of your class rated three stars.

I mean, it’s absolute hogwash. It’s recruiting industry Pravda and anyone who says otherwise really hasn’t looked at the facts. 






Not all three-stars are created equal

First and foremost, the recruiting industry is not as detailed when it comes to three-star rated prospects. Of all of the ratings given out to major college football prospects, none vary as much as the three-star. There are prospects with dozens of offers that have that rating. There are prospects with one offer that have that rating. Offers are not indicative of talent, but are an example of how the opinions of analysts and college coaches alike are not as in consensus with the three-star.

There are three-stars that are “value” threes who many really feel could end up being great at the college level and playing in the NFL, there are “in-between” threes who end up being role players in college (that should be two stars, which these days is wrongfully interpreted as being “bad” or “average” by prospects, parents and even the media) and there are “get you fired” three stars- guys that are good high school players that may have impressed someone somewhere at a camp or something, but who lack the ability to play college football...

Story: Recruiting 'star system' doesn't guarantee NFL Draft success (http://www.kentucky.com/2015/05/04/3835518_mark-story-recruiting-star-system.html)

Quote
Of the 32 players who were drafted in Thursday's first round, there were more Rivals.com three-star recruits (12) than either four-stars or five-stars (eight of each). Heck, there were four two-stars taken in round one.

Of the four former two-star recruits taken in the first round, three were cornerbacks...

None of the four players from the state of Georgia that were taken in the first round of this year’s NFL Draft had scholarship offers out of high school from UGA or Alabama. (http://recruiting.blog.ajc.com/2015/05/05/none-of-states-nfl-first-rounders-had-uga-or-bama-offers)

Quote
...out of the eight players from Georgia selected in the first round over the last two years, only one – North Gwinnett High School’s Ja’Wuan James – had offers from both UGA and Alabama.

So what’s going on?

Class rankings: May 20 update http://es.pn/1LbQlMu

Quote
While offensive prospects, including five-star QB Jacob Eason, lead Georgia's class, it was some defensive additions that helped the Bulldogs push into the top-five for the first time in the 2016 cycle. In-state ESPN 300 CB Chad Clay gives Georgia a tall, aggressive and well-rounded player to develop in the secondary and the Bulldogs also recently added four-star DL Tyler Clark.

1. FSU
4. UGa
5. OM
6. LSU
11. Bama
14. UK

Can you guess which college has, on average, the highest-paid players in the NFL? (http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/101998/report-ole-miss-leads-all-schools-in-average-nfl-pay)

Quote
According to a report from SportingIntelligence, which ranked the NFL’s top 35 earning groups from the 2014 season, the top school is Ole Miss.

The Rebels currently have 18 former players in the NFL, and between them they make an average salary of $4.1 million per year. Second on the list is Virginia with a $3.4 million average annual salary for its former players.

Obviously, former Ole Miss quarterback Eli Manning and his $19.8 million salary in 2014-2015 play a major role in the rankings, as does defensive end Greg Hardy, who made $13.1 million this past year...

Here’s a look at some of the other SEC schools on the list.

    1. Ole Miss (18 players): $4.1 million

    8. Tennessee (28): $3 million

    9. Georgia (34): $2.7 million

    13. Texas A&M (19): $2.4 million

    14. Florida (31): $2.4 million

    15. Auburn (25): $2.3 million

    19. Alabama (36): $2.2 million

    21. Missouri (17): $2.1 million

    23. South Carolina (24): $2 million

    26. LSU (31): $1.9 million

    33. Arkansas (15): $1.4 million

Crimson Tide led all teams with 36 former players in the NFL during the 2014 season.

Minimum 15 players requirement would take out some of the non-SEC schools on this list.

5-stars don't always end up being 1st round draft picks: Who are some of Ole Miss' biggest over/underachievers? http://www.clarionledger.com/story/olemisssports/2015/07/06/five-underoverachievers-for-ole-miss/29795841/ …

Quote
Under

Damore'ea Stringfellow

The Washington transfer has never played a down for Ole Miss, so there's time still for the wideout to work his way down to the bottom half of this list where we outline the Rebels' biggest overachievers.

But Stringfellow had a disappointing spring considering the expectations.

Stringfellow passes the eye test -- and then some.

He looks great on paper, too.

He's 6-foot-3, 225-pounds. He's a former four-star and top 100 recruit...

Channing Ward

In Ole Miss' media guide, the longest section and the most text on Ward's page seemingly falls under the header "high school" – not under "in 2012"… or 2013 or 2014.

There's a reason for that.

Ward was as highly praised a high school prospect as they come.

He was a five-star, the top prospect in the state and the nation's No. 4 overall defensive end, according to 247Sports.com.

The 6-foot-4, 279-pound senior hasn't exactly put up five-star production during his time in Oxford.

Over

Evan Engram

Ole Miss signed three tight ends in its 2013 signing class – yes, the class filled with elite recruits like Laremy Tunsil, Tony Conner, Laquon Treadwell and Robert Nkemdiche.

Of the three, Engram was tabbed by most as the one least likely to contribute right away.

According to 247Sports, he was a three-star prospect and the 81st-best recruit in Georgia.

Today, he probably belongs in the "elite" conversation alongside the Treadwells and Nkemdiches of the world.

Today, he's a preseason All-American.

Fadol Brown

As a freshman at FIU, Brown registered a modest eight tackles and 1.5 sacks in 10 games.

His decision to transfer to Ole Miss in 2013 -- where he sat out the entire season due to NCAA rules -- didn't exactly grab front-page headlines.

But in his debut season in Oxford last fall, the 6-foot-4, 280-pound defensive end finished top 10 on the team in tackles and started nine games.

Cody Core

The nation's former 1,666th best prospect and the 226 best wide receiver recruit is yet another example that recruiting rankings often mean little.

Core has emerged as a legitimate offensive threat and as the solid No. 2 wideout option Ole Miss so desperately needs...

Where are the 2014 Dandy Dozen players now? http://on.thec-l.com/1I89lLW  #Dandy12 via @CourtneyRCronin

Quote
Fletcher Adams, DL, Brandon: The defensive tackle chose Mississippi State over Ole Miss and Florida.

In 2015: At 6-foot-2, 260 pounds, Adams is slightly undersized for a defensive tackle but athletic enough to play defensive end. He'll benefit from a redshirt year in Starkville.

Dontea Jones, WR, Louisville

In 2014: Jones was one of the first commitments for Mississippi State in 2015.

In 2015: His journey to Starkville will take a detour through North Carolina this fall. Jones is headed to Jireh Prep where he will begin his transition to tight end.

Armani "Ronnie" Linton, ATH, Walnut

In 2014: The two-way player flipped his commitment from Mississippi State to Ole Miss in June 2014.

In 2015: Ole Miss is loaded in its defensive backfield. Linton will redshirt this season.

Leo Lewis, LB, Brookhaven: He committed to Alabama and Ole Miss before flipping to Mississippi State on National Signing Day.

In 2015: MSU used a six player rotation at linebacker last year and should decrease to using four this fall. There's a slight chance Lewis could play...

Jamal Peters, DB, Bassfield

In 2014: Mississippi State's highest-rated 2015 signee...

In 2015: Peters has a chance to make an immediate impact this fall with the Bulldogs depleted depth at safety. At 6-foot-2, 216 pounds, the Bassfield product has one of the biggest frames at safety on Mississippi State's roster (maybe ever).

RB: Nick Chubb, Georgia
lthough Chubb spotted college football five weeks as Todd Gurley's backup, the rookie still finished in the top 20 nationally in total rushing yards (1,547).

TE: Hunter Henry, Arkansas
Henry is a rarity in today's game in that he's a tight end who plays with his hand in the dirt and can actually block. Even though he's stuck in an offense that doesn't throw the ball much, Henry has found a way to lead all SEC tight ends in receptions over the past two seasons.
