Poona Ford (we lead) NR DB

I know most of you know those positions/ratings, but added those to show the potential of this class, and I really think we need a monster class to be able to stay near the top of the pack in the SEC.
In addition:
#1 recruit Deshawn Hand has some interest.
Naquez Pringle 4* DT I think we lead, right?
Anthony Moten 4* DE, but always hard to get the top South FL players.
Drew Barker 4* QB

Out of NC...forgetting Jaylan Barbour (WR), Braxton Berrios (WR), along with SC prospects Caleb Kinlaw (RB) Kalan Ritchie (TE) Joe Blue (LB) and out of GA Denzel Franklin (DB) Nick Ruffin (DB) Quay Searcy (DB).

Has the potential to be a very solid class that addresses a lot of needs as well.

Exactly, the 2014 class has potential to be the best signing class ever at USC, in terms of ratings.

Over the years i have realized that evaluations of talent is mroe critical than the rankings of analysts....The gurus don't know much...Our staff does a fine job of evaluating prospects and getting them inot the right roles in our schemes...As long as we a getting very talented kids of good character, i don't care if the class is ranked top5 or top 15....In that range, you'll be very good if you are evaluating effectively..

Next year's class is absolutely critical if we are to maintain our recent success.

I think it could be the best class ever at USC. It definitely think it will be much better than the previous two or three.

You are right.
Find guys that fit your system and what you are trying to do.
Not what the "rankers" tell you is a good prospect.

"Over the years..." it has been more important to evaluate the prospects that fit into our schemes and then "coach em up". That has worked well for us and has made us a top 10 contender presently and for the forseeable future. But for us to take the next step and become an elite contender year in year out, we must get the elite talent. Look at the national champs the past decade or so and then look at their recruiting rankings for the years leading up to the 'ship...

Unfortunately, the recruits don't see USC as elite, so USC isn't able to recruit nationally, for the most part. Also, the top recruiting schools tend to be in state with either surplus BCS talent recruits, or far more population. The state of South Carolina just can't produce the numbers. If you follow recruiting, no one ever says they grew up rooting for the Gamecocks unless they were from South Carolina, or had Souh Carolina ties. However, lots of out of state kids rooted for OSU, UGA, UF...etc. Tony Morrell says because of demographics, USC will always have some rebuilding years. They will to coach up some kids to go with our South Carolina hs talent, and maybe grab a few good ones out of Charlotte, and recruit what Georgia can't take.

I have chosen to be realistic about this, and not negative as I feel USC can have a good, or above average class every year. Hopefully, 2014 is one of the above average classes, and I feel it will be one of the best, although it will be hard to beat the 2007 class.

As long as we stay where we are and finally make that one last big step that we should have made the last two years, we will be consistently very good and even the very good teams have breakout seasons and make it to the BCS. We can do it next year. I'm looking forward to the playoff system cause there have been seasons we were the hottest team in the nation at the end of the season. Take 2011, if we had made the SEC title game, we might have got an at-large berth in the playoffs if it were implemented then. We need to TAKE what should have been ours the last two years next year.

While much of this is/might be true...It's a bad mindset to have. There will always be excuses for why we can't do this or that. Having this type of thinking as a fan base, only hinders progress. UGA hasn't won a national championship since before all of the recruits and players were born. UF wasn't always the Florida we think of today. Look at UTjr, 7-8 years ago they would be right there in the convo of "elite". It has to start somewhere and as a fanbase, we need to do our part to keep pushing our expectations higher.

Default Re: 2014 Recruits

Absolutely right - we can be very successful and avoid the rebuilding years. It is pretty simple. First, get more than our share of the instate kids. We don't produce really big quantities of BCS conference level athletes, but we do have some really talented guys in-state, like Clowney, Latti, etc. Next, raid the nearby states for talent. SC does not have a big population, but if you add in Charlotte (closer to Columbia than any of the North Carolina schools), Augusta and Savannah (both on the state line), and Atlanta (not very far via interstate), we have a big population base. Kids from NC are drawn here because of the big-time football and SEC competition, and there are too may talented kids in Georgia for UGA to take them all. Throw in a few from Florida (too much talent for the in-state schools to take them all), the PA/NJ area (kids want to play big-time football and like the warm weather) and you have a very talented team. Of course, talent evaluation and player development are important, and our coaches have been doing a good job with both.
