did you see where we offered a 2015 QB from New Jersey, Brandon Wimbush 6'2" 205, 4*, 7th ranked QB in the nation....he plays on the same team as Minkah Fitzpatrick a big time CB that is high on us.

What concerns me is that he really likes OSU and so does Fitzpatrick, but it's still early.

So your perspective on this is:

"They really like Ohio State - that concerns me"

(about both also liking USC): "that's irrelevant, because it deals with recruiting"

Free snapshot of the Crystal Ball outlook

http://southcarolina.247sports.com/A...28-2014-173978

Quote:
QB Bo Baldwin

Link to Baldwin’s Crystal Ball

One of the oddest recruitments this season has been that of Baldwin, an in-state quarterback without any major offers. Early in the process, South Carolina is where Baldwin wanted to play his college football and he was offered a greyshirt opportunity. When the Gamecocks landed Florida signal-caller Michael Scarnecchia, talk on Baldwin went quiet. Jason Pughe of Athlete Vault and region recruiting guru was the first to project Baldwin to Clemson. 247Sports recruiting director JC Shurburtt and others jumped on board but the Crystal Ball is trending back towards the Gamecocks. Quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus was by Baldwin’s school on Friday and has the Gamecocks back in the mix with others still lurking.

DE Darrius Caldwell

Link to Caldwell’s Crystal Ball

There are only five experts and analysts predicting Caldwell’s future and four have him signing with the Gamecocks on February 5. Caldwell, who committed to South Carolina on January 22, had 100 percent of the action on the Crystal Ball to USC until a recent academic issue has the ability to attend any SEC school in doubt. With that in mind, TheBigSpur.com publisher Tony Morrell became his first to flip his prediction and now has Caldwell headed west to Arizona State, a school the three-star prospect in the 247Composite will trip to this weekend.

WR Isaiah Ford

Link to Ford’s Crystal Ball

Isaiah Ford
There isn't any action for the Gamecocks on the Crystal Ball for Isaiah Ford but that could change

What is still up in the air is whether or not South Carolina will make room for another wide receiver in the 2014 class. If so, maybe the top candidate is Ford, who has 13 people predicting where he’ll land in the Crystal Ball but none of the experts believe it will be the Gamecocks. Eighty-five percent off the prognosticators, including three national recruiting analysts, believe Virginia Tech is where Ford ends up. 247Sports national recruiting insider Kipp Adams registered the most recent pick though Crystal Balling the four-star wideout to Louisville. A member of Ford’s camp told TheBigSpur.com that a visit to USC is still possible. If that visit happens, there may be some new action in his Crystal Ball.

CB Wesley Green

Link to Green’s Crystal Ball

The most fascinating Crystal Ball watch of the year from South Carolina’s perspective has to be that of Green, who has had three teams leading for his services at different points in the process. Clemson began registering 100 percent of the votes in June but quickly dropped to zero when it looked like South Carolina. Green committed to the Gamecocks, then decommitted, and now it’s a border battle between South Carolina and Georgia with both trending at different points. Recently though, Green is swinging firmly in favor of USC and the last two predictions are the most telling. Dawgs247 insiders Gentry Estes and Rusty Mansell both flipped their predictions on Green from the Bulldogs to Gamecocks over the weekend. What was once a 50-50 battle now has South Carolina holding 78 percent odds against Georgia’s 22 percent.

CB Chris Lammons

Link to Lammons’ Crystal Ball

Lammons is vying for worst-kept-secret in this recruiting class right now as the Crystal Ball trend has turned majorly in favor of the Gamecocks. While the four-star prospect claims to be 50-50 between South Carolina and Wisconsin, not a single one of 41 experts have him selecting the Badgers. Lammons, who was committed to Florida, opened up his recruitment in early January and the Gators fell out of the picture. It was nearly a 50-50 battle between the SEC East rivals from September to the time he opened it up but now, he appears to be all Gamecock.

OL Damian Prince

Link to Prince’s Crystal Ball

South Carolina has stayed on the peripheral of Prince’s top schools and hung around enough to earn an official visit earlier this month. The Gamecocks, however, have never really been able to register on the Crystal Ball and sit at 0 percent with signing day just around the corner. Prince had a good time on his official visit but he quickly deduced that South Carolina wasn’t the right fit for him. All signs point to Maryland, based on the intelligence we’ve gathered, and the Gamecocks are out of the picture.

DE Dexter Wideman

Link to Wideman's Crystal Ball

Lammons’ competition for worst-kept secret is Wideman, who is still classified as a Florida State commitment. Shockingly, he has 100 percent of 23 recruiting prognosticators projecting him to South Carolina. Wideman visited Columbia officially on January 17 and will take his official to Florida State this weekend. Maybe there will be some movement but even Noles247 insiders, including 247Sports regional recruiting expert Chris Nee, believe that Wideman will not be a part of the FSU class.
Also, for those curious of how certain predictors do in terms of accuracy:

Top national and local predictors

JC Shurburtt - 91.67%
Brandi Mills - 88.89%
Jason Pughe - 87.80%
Rusty Mansell - 87.50%
Chris Nee - 85.39%
Wes Mitchell - 81.25%
Tony Morrell - 80.00%
Ryan Bartow - 77.08%
Keith Niebuhr - 76.27%

The CB% is so misleading. These guys change their predictions 100x a recruiting cycle.

how about the numbers of how accurate they are with their initial prediction vs their final prediction? I assume these numbers are only from their final predictions. who knows how many more times their current predictions will change before the numbers you've posted become relevant.

According to CC we are trying to flip an offensive player from another school. He does not want to release the name yet, but the staff has been quietly communicating with this recruit for awhile behind the scenes. Anyone have any idea who it might be?
