Last year we had big leads with several kids that aren't here. We ended up with some very good players not even on the radar at this point last year. This year will be difficult with the lack of depth of talent in state.
We also got in on some kids late as well. Alot of them we led with the entire way. Such is recruiting. As with stars and all other predictions about the future, leading now is a good indication (although not perfect) of landing someone in the future. I'd rather lead than have to come from behind. Recruiting, as always, is fluid. That doesn't mean that people should be overly pessimistic.

As for negative nancys, the most noticable is Eeyore215....

Obviously because our coaches don't know how to recruit and can never land a class of pure 5 stars. I'm surprised you didn't reach that conclusion already...

He has no info. He just always predicts no recruits will come to USC. If anyone says otherwise he says they aren't "realistic". Or calls them "sunshine pumpers". Its why 215 disappeared after signing day when we signed some good prospects he was determined we would not get. Now he's downplaying all "2015" prospects. Do we get all prospects we want? Of course not. But it has nothing to do with being realistic or a sunshine pumper ( which by the way is a stupid saying)

Good to see you haven't ignored me yet. Guess you're still interested to hear what I have to say.

I'm sure other schools are telling these WR than we have Dylan starting this year (1 year starter), then 2015 brand new starter at QB.

I hope everyone realizes we offer between 200-250 players each year....so we only get 10% of them.

True, but we don't get predictions for every player. There are guys we were predicted to get that we didn't, but generally a prediction means we will be a factor in the recruitment

I just think it's easier to predict "we won't get either" and then say "see? I'm right!" because the odds are in your favor (as B pointed out above).

We may land neither, we may land both, we may land one. I'd take Williams over Neal, and there's a LOOOONNNNGGGG way to go, friend. Tony Morrell predicting him to South Carolina doesn't mean nothing, though.

His film is impressive. He does a good job of high pointing the ball and he is very fast considering he is 6' 5"... don't see too many guys his size move that fast. Getting him would be tremendous. Let's sit back and see how it plays out.

Or closer to home several of the frequent recruiting posters here on CT. The ones that say they're GC fans but don't really act like they are .Several come to mind , but they know who they are no need to identify them ,they will do that themselves.
