This kid is so legit, some of you just can't believe kids like this can be this honest and have this much intergrity.
Listen: even if he switches I don't think "less" of him. He's a 17-18 year old making a big decision. And I really do "want" to believe (believe me), and hope I'm completely and utterly wrong. The whole situation just gives me the Rolin tingles. I think BAW and his Mom have conducted themselves fantastically and even if he switched I would wish him well (though be disappointed he didn't play for South Carolina).

Vickers didn't have the grades to get into Carolina. I hope nobody is trying to put that on our coaches. Kornbutt should know better than that.

He didn't put it on the coaches, he just said when the same guy clears the NCAA and can get into another school in your conference it causes you problems sometimes.

Looks like we will end with a very good class, especially considering the need at CB. Not great in my opinion. Lost some small leads, some big leads, and needed some instant impact at DE and it doesn't appear to be happening. Could have also landed one more OL IMO.

Thomas (who led the JUCO ranks in sacks) and Sawyer (a Rivals top 100 player) could/should both provide instant impact at DE. Surely they'll be in the rotation somewhere. There's no guarantee of that, of course, but why would you assume that they'll make no impact?

Forgot about Thomas. Sorry. Missing on two like this, especially the Caldwell issue, just stinks.

If Wideman flips to us and IF he qualifies I think he will help immediately at DE as well

So when do you usually find out if a recruit has qualified or not? I'm talking primarily about high schoolers, since I'm sure JUCO is slightly different.

It depends on if they are waiting on grades or test scores...some are already qualified and some may have the grades are waiting for a qualifying test scores and vice versa. Check out the NCAA requirements for freshman eligibility...
http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/eligibility_...ence_Sheet.pdf

It's pretty sad that so many players can't meet these requirements.

Default Re: 2014 Recruiting Impressions

if we get green and lammons and wideman, and keep who we have and most everybody qualifies(I'd rather sawyer qualify than Ritchie b/c of instant impact), I think we sign a Great class. another olineman woulda been nice but since the start it was said only take two. I wish it would have been known earlier that we were taking a higher number than halfway through the recruiting process

Looks like the only solid signing day commitments are Green and Lammons. CC also said yesterday according to his sources that Wideman has a better chance of qualifying at the moment than Sawyer.
We need at least need 2 of Wideman, Sawyer, or Thomas to qualify or we will be in trouble next season at the DE position.

I think some of their problems occur in their first 2 years of high school when they are lazy and immature. Then it's sometimes hard to catch up the last 2 years.

I agree...I've been watching kids here in Greenwood not really worry about school until it becomes likely that they can play in college. I know, for a fact, that the coaches are constantly preaching to the kids about their grades.
