***2015 Recruiting***

Recommended Posts

Sounds like we have another good set of early commits who are constantly communicating with each other and working on peer-recruiting. The Davis twins and Austin Conway seem to be some of the guys they're working on the most right now.

Internet speculation on how many commits we'll take by position - looking at 16-20 in this class:

 

QB - 1

RB - 1 (Bussey currently committed)

FB - Chandler Cox or none

WR - 2-3

TE - 0-1

OL - 3-4 (Gaylord committed)

DL - 3-4

LB - 2

DB - 3-4 (Lee and Anderson committed)

Just a note for those who think high school kids have to run 4.3 40s to be "fast":

 

There were 1,422 athletes tested at the Charlotte Nike SPARQ testing today. Exactly one of them ran sub 4.50 - 4.48 by a 181 lb kid. There were only 21 more that ran between 4.50 and 4.59.

I hope we take 5 total DBs. We are in dire need of pure numbers here IMO. Not that we don't have proper numbers but more that we aren't sure of what we have with those numbers. Getting a good year out of the younger guys next year would alleviate some if my concerns but I'd like to see us take a minimum of 4 next year.

I guess I don't think we're in that bad of shape. We took four two years ago and five this year - one JUCO - and only lose three. I think we're in really good shape at Safety with Alexander and Gerry still having three years to play. We already have two corners committed so 1-2 more should be good.

 

If we're on the lower end of the range, I don't think we take almost 1/3 of the class at DB.

Agree. I think we have other guys who could also be good. But those are the two we've already seen play and play well.

With Bell and Turner leaving after this upcoming season, I hope the staff goes after at least 1 stud WR this recruiting cycle

 

Potential 2015 WR lineup

1. Westerkamp

2. Alonzo moore/ Brandon Reilly

3. 2015 stud recruit/ Gladney/ Taariq allen/ harrison (if he stays)

I see westerkamp in the slot with pierson-el/stewart/irons backup. And it could be a number of people at the outside receiver spots. If I had to guess I would say Moore and Harrison.

I think Westerkamp might end up outside. He's not as big as Enunwa but he's similar in size to Bell. And we seem to be stockpiling shorter, quicker guys to run in the slot.

 

Westerkamp on one side as the possession guy who catches everything. A big target on the other side - Harrison (hopefully) Allen, Burtch, Moore - even Tolbert. And a bunch of blazers in the slot - Irons, Pierson-El, Stewart (possibly). Plus Gladney in there somewhere.

Kareem McDonald @TheRealKareem9: UMD, NEBRASKA, CLEMSON, KENTUCKY, TEMPLE #TOP5

 

We are in the top 5 for this DC area LB.

http://sports.yahoo....McDonald-150350

Guess with Toledo's offer, Maryland is no longer in play (or at least in his top 5), though it seems fluid. Will be interesting to see if/when JP sends out an offer to this LB. He has not been playing long but has been doing work. Looking forward to Kareem and Adam McLean making their way west for BRW.

®#⃣9⃣〽️@TheRealKareem9 10h

New Top 5: Toledo, Nebraska, Kentucky, Temple, Arizona!

Pelini said "we're really close" to filling two new staff positions devoted mostly to recruiting. He said those are the only two new recruiting staff positions in the works "for now."

Speculation this class could be as high as 23. With only 11 seniors and only two RS juniors that have been passed by by unnderclassmen (Pirman & Sutton), I'm not sure how they can come up with that many more. Attrition is one thing but that would be 12 or so which is extremely high. You could say Gregory will leave early and with six RS Juniors on the OLine we could lose a couple more there if they aren't getting it done and maybe Kevin Williams if he continues to get hurt. But all that still only gets to 17. Except for the two OLinemen, all this year's sophomores played last year as freshmen.

Maybe we are joining the SEC. :) We are recruiting the south like we are already there (~little over 50% of our offers are in nine southern states).

Rivals Camp Series@RivalsCamp 16m

#Rivals100 LB Cameron Smith has a leader emerge -- details the latest at #RivalsCamp (FREE) http://bit.ly/1g39a3L

 

 

#98 Overall per Rivals and #5 ILB. In the interview, he says USC is his leader and is also interested in Penn State. When asked about other schools he's interested in, he listed Nebraska along with Michigan, Oregon and UCLA. Interesting that none of the sites show he has an offer from us.

Smith did an interview about ten days ago and said he wants to take a bunch of spring and summer unofficials (hoping to visit several for spring games). When asked which, he listed Oregon, Arizona, USC, UCLA and Nebraska. Dude is a sledgehammer and tracks the ball carrier well.

If Decker is this year's Foster, Matt Clark and Adam Holtorf may be this year's Stoltenberg. Coaches have told both to come to camp so they can evaluate how each have progressed from their junior years, and offers could follow after that.

 

With Decker guessed to commit around BRW, an offer to either Holtorf, Clark, or both could make for a surge of in-state commitments at BRW.

Duck Territory@DuckTerritory 9m

Our #Oregon offer list has 39 'known' offers on it, #GoDucks pretty tight with scholarships http://oregon.247sports.com/Season/2015-Football/Offers #GoDucks

 

 

Oregon has 39 offers out. Nebraska has 112. I guess Oregon's coaches must not put too much effort into recruiting. They just got their first 2015 commit today.

Yeah, that's only a 2.56% return for Oregon. Nebraska is doing twice as well with 5.36%.

What's exciting is that not only are we off to a flying start with multiple top-shelf recruits in the fold but that we now have real recruiting momentum. Talent attracts and helps recruit other talent, this could snowball into a superb class.

And give the staff more time to start recruiting next years class and hope this early success becomes the norm.

 

 

Ya, the less we have to hustle-around and throw-out offers to fill the '15 class the more we can put into the '16 class.

No offer from NU as of now - not many offers from anyone. Considering it's a smaller class, not sure he'll get one but you never know.

G.O.D@TheRealKareem9 2h

Planning visits to Arizona, Kentucky, Nebraska, Rutgers, Michigan State!

 

 

Still no offer but he really likes us.
