Default Re: Discussion: 2017 Recruiting Impressions

It's refreshing to see us going after the top rated guys early in the recruiting cycle.

Way too early wish list for 2017:
QB: Jake Bentley
RB: Anthony McFarland / D'Andre Swift
WR: Trevon Grimes / OrTre Smith / Shi Smith / Trey Blount
TE: Will Register
OL: Isaiah Wilson / Andrew Thomas / Tony Gray / Jonah Melton / Cesar Ruiz
DB: William Poole III / Davondre Robinson / Stanford Samuels / Jamyest Williams
LB: Nate McBride / Justin Foster / Leonard Warner
DE: Josh Kaindoh / Malik Herring / Jake Lawler
DT: Aubrey Solomon

Every one of these guys is in recruiting territory we traditionally recruit, is four-star or higher by Rivals at this time, and has already been offered.

Add Lamont Wade, Carlito Gonzalez and Savalas Cann at DB, Eric Douglas and TJ Moore at OL, Logan Rudolph at TE ,last but not least Brad Johnson at DL. we have a fighters chance with all those guys right now.

Agreed that it's nice going after elite talent.

Default Re: Discussion: 2017 Recruiting Impressions

Jim Baxter wrote a little recruiting blurb for the State regarding the 2017 cycle. He gave a top 5 list of the in-state prospects for that cycle - pretty much lists everyone that has already been mentioned here, and puts Logan Rudolph out of Northwestern as his #1 on the list, as a DE. I know lilhornet above has mentioned Rudolph, but as a TE:

#1) DE Logan Rudolph (6-4, 230), Northwestern
#2) DB Devondre Robinson (6-0, 190), Lake Marion
#3) WR Or'Tre Smith (6-3, 220), Wando
#4) TE Will Register (6-4, 240), Chapin
#5) WR Shi Smith (6-0, 170), Union County

None of the recruiting services show us as having offered Aubrey Solomon. I promise: Spurrier did. And his Mom was excited about the offer. He took an Unofficial here.

Lance was his recruiter for Auburn.

Default Re: Discussion: 2017 Recruiting Impressions

i agree, the only thing that makes sense to me is that they're handling the visits together, so the juniors are tagging along with the seniors. could be that having the attitude "hey as long as you drive here on your own dime and buy your own hotel room, you can come here and hang out with the kids we want you playing with in two seasons"

Liking who we are shooting for, and we have a chance to grab some really special players.

I thought I could keep this here for making it easier to update the other threads.

Default Is 2017 a light year for talent in SC?

I looked at 247's offer list for 2017 and we have about 98 offers out and only about 4-5 guys are from SC. Most all the guys are from Georgia, Florida and Alabama. Would you think this is due to many of the coaches already having relationships with these kids from their previous positions at Auburn and little contact with SC kids, or is there actually less talent than normal in SC for 2017?

It's one of those cases where there is more familiarity out of state for our current coaches. Also there is less no brainer must offer talent in SC. I expect us to throw a good number more offers around instate but it will be to under the radar guys that you have to do good scouting to find.

I have a great deal more confidence in this group of coaches than the former group. So when Boom and Company evaluate and offer, I'm not nearly as concerned with those lower star offers now.

No. A light year is a measure of distance, not time.
