Wideman is sort of a must need. He can start off at DE before eventually moving inside, and we need DE's next year. I would have agreed two months ago that Scott isn't a must need, but with Smith probably moving to CB, Salley transferring, and Carson perhaps not coming back, we need bodies at RB for 2015.

If the class ends like SGF predicted, that would be a huge disappointment, but it wouldn't exactly shock me.

Caldwell's transcripts did not check out. The staff now wants to wait until after the Spring semester to check back in on his grades for an official offer.

Which makes me feel better about our chances, your predictions have been way off, I also think you said Clempson would whip us. Just sayin'

My reasoning with Wideman is his qualifying status.But if he does qualify he would be a big pick up.

If Scott ends up elsewhere then I say we'd be OK next year but RB becomes a huge need in the RB class of 2015.I think RB will be a need in that class anyway.

This.

And then you have UGA with such a back log of stud RB's, plus the two coming in. Someone is not going to get their carries.

Hey guys, time to open Isaiah Ford's thread back up. According to the news, he is no longer committed to Louisville and is taking a serious look at us, VT and Florida State.

According to his mom, he has to be able to play football and basketball. How awesome would it be to grab him... I would love to add a 6'3" WR to WR corp, especially since Bruce Ellington has declared.

3 WR are in the class already. I'm guessing DL and CB would take precedence in the coaches' eyes. A RB would be good, but not a necessity.

Keep an eye on Louisville defensive back commitment De'Eric Culver .. I think USC could make a run at him. Coaching staff liked him early on.

Also if Franklin leaves Vanderbilt, I would be shocked if we (and a bunch of other schools) didn't go full bore after Kyle Gibson. That kid is a ball player.

I'm sure everyone knows but the football team is doing an appreciation at the basketball game January 18th and I bet the recruits will be there. Try to get there if you can and get others too to cheer on by all team and chant for our recruits. I'm gonna try to make it

About being scared that Scarnecchia's highlights are just "highlights," consider this: He threw 28 touchdown passes and only 2 interceptions as a senior. He threw 18 touchdown passes and only 1 interception as a junior. That's a grand total of 3 interceptions in two seasons. How many "lowlights" can there be?

Also, he worked out for our coaches at a summer camp. This offer wasn't based solely on the kid's highlight reel.

Finally, what the heck is "scary" about it? It's a scholarship offer for a player who shows a lot of promise. I don't think he'll be murdering co-eds with an axe. Relax, dude.

There are some "can't miss" 4-star guys who never contribute...and plenty of guys with Scarnecchia's rating who do. (Incidentally, his rating is similar to that of another 6-4 QB from the state of Florida who also fell through the recruiting cracks and had few offers: Blake Bortles. Bortles is about to become a top 10 pick in the NFL draft. Just sayin'.)

If I remember correctly, didn't Bruce come here initially on a B-Ball scholarship, play his first college year on the B-Ball team, then switch to a Football scholly his second year in school?

If so, and Ford wants to play both sports (and has the skills to do so), then technically he could do the same, come to school on a B-Ball scholly for 2014, then switch over to Football in 2015.

Am I wrong?
