Just offered him today, really think we can get him over Nebraska. Confused why we need another DE. Assuming Caldwell is out of the picture with this offer

He's done with FSU though? They still seem to want him especially if they are going to be losing Wideman.

He would be a good get. He is VERY similar to Wideman in my opinion. Maybe we get both, who knows?

Yeah I think he was trending Nebraska before we got involved. If he shows up on our campus this weekend you can throw out the cigar. Would be a very good pickup. Had offers from Bama, LSU, FSU, Miami, etc. He is a 89 which is as close as you can get to being a 4 star without being one. Very explosive. Uses hands extremely well. He also is closer to 280 than 257.

He was committed to FSU for so long he might have been one of the forgotten guys-kid is a beast & definately a solid SDE prospect.

A few things..
1-This may mean the Caldwell situation is close to be axed.
2-The staff is iffy on Wideman.
3-Another player may be leaving early.
4-A contengency plan if Kalan Ritchie doesn't work out at DE and is moved to TE.

I have no insider info, just throwing some ideas out there.

As someone else mentioned, this is probably related to the inability to have Caldwell admitted but he would certainly be a good prospect.

He is already qualified. Chances are slim that both Wideman and Sawyer qualify.Both are on the bubble so thinking both make it is not a good plan.

A recruiting analyst was on 107.5 earlier today, he was saying that Spurrier Jr. was down in Florida and was trying to get him on campus this weekend.

At least one service has him listed as a DT, a couple as a DE. I wonder if he's looking like a "multi-fit in" recruit.

TBS now saying that he will likely visit Nebraska because he promised their Coaches he would but that right now he really likes the thought of playing at SC - close to home and the SEC. Also stated that he may visit us after his Nebraska visit so he may sign AFTER Signing Day. Family really really likes Spurrier Jr. Could commit to us without even visiting. Very interesting story developing.

Default Re: DE - Blake McClain

The article mentions that he's been one of the vocal leaders of this recruiting class trying to get others to sway their commitment to FSU. Does this mean that maybe he's been in or has the opportunity to get into Wideman's ear and start swaying towards the Garnet and Black? Provided of course he makes the decision to come this way as well. Just a thought!!
