What's the latest?

IMO, now that we've got C. Wade locked in, MA is one of the final "must-haves"

It looks like the nole fans are going back-and-forth as well on whether they will offer or even sign Mister.  They are talking like he is a backup plan if they do sign him.  What does everyone think of UA landing Mister?

It seems they already have a few S commits so i doubt they even offer. He will probably be an invited walkon if they do anything, so i think he will come to Arkansas.

He's got an official visit at FSU this weekend.  We won't know until next week.  As long as FSU doesn't offer, we have him.  If they offer, he's gone.

Question is how fast is his 40?  I looked on HI and they had no continuity.  He's listed a 4.51 in the stats box, but in his quick profile it says 4.7-4.8.  That's a BIG difference.  I can't see a 3* safety with a 4.7-4.8 speed...

he's more of a cornerback isn't he?  If they put him at safety what are they planning on doing with Kevin Thorton?

MA is either a safety or an OLB.

At 6-3 200, he could, depending on his frame, easily gain 20-30 lbs in a year and move up to the front 7. The primary reason that people have mentioned moving him out of the D-backfield, though, is b/c he was timed at 4.78 last year. However, he was clocked at 4.51 at an LSU camp last summer. If the truth is closer to the latter, he's probably a safety. Either way, he's a ball hawk and would be a great pick-up for us, imo.

Mister Alexander to Florida State.

Looks like we're gonna miss out on a good one there.

Damn.

The guy I talked to thinks Florida State is on the verge of landing a 4-star CB that's been considering Arkansas also, Jenjie is his name I believe.

Who gets his scholarship (Alexander)?   Coleman ?  Or do we give it to a DB/WR ?

FYI - He could surprise FSU and go with the Hogs.  He's not a lock for FSU and could be BIG steal at the end.

He is with FSU for now and I'm told that they could get two more CB and drop him.  It a small chance, but I'm hoping it happen.

There is nothing on Scout or Rivals as to him committing to FLAST.  In fact, they show he has no offer from them still...

MA has not commited at this point, and we are unaware of any offers. Seminole fans at warchant.com seem to think him being offered hinges on Anthony Leon, a 4 star safety and rivals has him listed as a soft verbal to FSU. IMO MA will be a hog. Seminole fans are sayin he has not been offered.

He doesn't show on the commit list.  In fact i suspect that he has a conditional offer based on a different recruit's decision.

I am guessing that Alexander's offer to FSU (if it exists) is only good if a certain higher rated recruit turns them down.  So it's a waiting game.

How good is this Hewitt kid anyway? He is not ranked by Rivals and is a two star on Scout. If we are taking a chance on him being a player at the SEC level I would rather take a chance with Kreamer. From what I have heard he was considered one of the best safties in the country before his knee injury but after that he dropped, like they always do.

I would love to have Mister Alexander, but even without him I like the safeties we are bringing in.  I hope a couple of them rise to the level of Atwater, Hamlin, Kennedy, etc.

Interesting note that neither recruiting site - Scout OR Rivals is reporting anything about Florida State offering OR Mister Alexander accepting a scholarship.  It isn't that it is a weekend and they are behind in their reporting because there is an update (today) on Tylker Graves committing to FSU after making his visit this weekend.  I wonder what Otis Kirk is covering up here?

I am wondering the same thing...

They thought they were going to lose Anthony Leon to miami this weekend, but it didn't happen.  As of Sat night, they were going to offer alexander, now it appears they are not.  They are appearently going to offer Dominguez, and he will accept on the spot.

Repeat, repeat Alexander is not a safety recruit, he is a LB recruit because of his limited speed.  He is not gone just yet.

He ran a 4.86 at the combine he attended this summer and measured 6-2 191.  Arkansas IS recruiting him as a LB.  If we sign him you will read all about it.  Heck, don't believe everything you read.  If he ran 4.4 or 4.5 he would be a 4 or 5 star recruit.  Well, believe me though.  His scout profile actually shows 4.5, 4.78 and 4.86 and talks about his lack of speed.

He is a plan B or C at FSU like the Coleman kid is to Arkansas.  He is an A list kid to Herring who wants him as a LB.  He is a good player and a hard hitter who just doesn't have the speed even we would want to put in our D backfield.  The Thornton kid we signed last year was a 4 star by some because he was a good player.  He is a 4.8 on a good day.  You just have to have more speed than that if you expect to win 8 or 9 games against the competition we face.  Hopefully after this year we wont have to sign three or four more safeties again next year.

Mobile paper says that he committed to FSU this week end.  Go to al.com, pull up the Mobile Register and it is in the Decisions on the horizon article.  Also mentions that FSU picked up a verbal from Dominguez.  Guess we will know for sure on Wednesday.  By the way, Shula catching some hear over recruiting.  Will be a big wave of criticism Wednesday if they don't sign Smith.

yank it.

Agreed...although Hewitt is good enough to keep - somewhere.  The schollie we need to yank is the one to Powers...gee a tailback who runs between a 4.5 and a 4.6?  Yes, he also played linebacker, but the idiot Markuyson promised to let him work at tailback.  What the hell is that?  He might be one hell of an athlete, but the Hogs do not need a 4.6 tailback in our currently strong stable of tailbacks - period!


this is big time college football.

if we want to play in this arena, some toes are gonna have to be stomped on.

I have no problem with that.
