Default Re: Discussion: 2017 Recruiting Impressions

Reading this morning that we extended a preferred walk-on spot to the top rated Long Snapper Ben Reeder. This quote made me laugh a little though:

Quote:
“He just explained to me what South Carolina does with preferred walk-ons, almost being the same thing, but paying your tuition until you’re put on scholarship,” Reeder said. “I told him I was just waiting on possible scholarships from Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.”
If Georgia won't give a scholarship to their current starting kicker who's actually proven it on the field, then I don't see them giving a scholarship to a long snapper.

Most of their specialists are on already scholarship, except that kicker. And I think a back-up or two as well

I would think that the 49ers do the same and many of the coaches are part of a college camp at there alma mater. They also host the high school state championships at BOA stadium but the point is NFL coaches are involved with players and coaches at all levels as football is there life. Just like NFL players return to there high schools and see talent, teach talent and talk to there coaches IMO

There are several HS programs that didn't even exist when he was here, he's going to have a lot of networking to do.

Most guys are already committed at this stage, or getting ready to....signing day is close. His role this year is contact the existing commits and prospects to touch base, but basically he's starting from scratch on the 2018 class, plus starting to look at 2019 guys.
So in your mind during the offseason he stayed in san fran, didn't go to football camps and never spoke to college or high school football coaches. Of course he did not recruit but he still has contacts and can evaluate film for a few weeks to pull a diamond in the rough type from California, Ohio... He will also contact the OLinemen on our board, evaluate them and keep the guys we have committed to stay that way.

AFCA meeting today proposed a few major rule changes.
1. 5 to play 4 still remains, but players will be able to play in less than 4 games and still qualify for RS.
2. Add a 10th position coach.
3. Establish an early football signing date to the 3rd Wednesday in December.

You're right, QC, he possibly helped out in the 49'ers kids camp.

It's a non contact camp for boys and girls aged 7-14. I'm sure he's lining us up an eight year old ringer to play LT 10 years from now. She might have to hit the training table starting today, though, because she only weighs 89 lbs.

Unfortunately, she's also being recruited by a local dance studio for the Summer Ballet circuit...Wolfie has his work cut out for him.

Since you have no earthly idea how NFL kids camps work, you maybe should just drop it...you're not doing a solid job of debating.

Like I said, since he hadn't been here in 7 years, he has to make new contacts with coaches, look at Mapquest to locate the new high schools that didn't exist 7 years ago, and touch base with our current players, current commits, and the couple of targets we're still jockeying for.

Since signing day is so close, that's what's on his plate,unless he gets a tip this late in the game on someone that can squeeze in a visit late.

What's so hard to understand about that?

No...I swear everybody loves talking about what they don't know...RT told CWM that Wolford first job was to secure a helio-helicopter for the athletic department. Please get your d*mn information straight before talking out your *ss. It like everyone has been hanging out with Bullware getting their *sses poked.

In an off topic question that I don't know where else to put it, do any of you recruiting gurus know how big the tigers class is going to be this year? They're sitting at 13 commits right now which is WELL below the norm of 25. Only 8 schools in the country have less commits right now. That runs counter-intuitive to what you would think after a team takes home the title.

Anybody have any insight? I'm assuming their low numbers helps us in 2017?
