I think he'll be a Gamecock. The key to out of state kids IMO is getting them on campus as much as possible.

Well I don't know , seems our overall performance in the past few years and our finish in the college football polls show we are statistically better in results against these two colleges that you are suggesting. We not only finished higher in the polls bet have had better finishes in the SEC EAST. You say that current history is what changes HS players minds , so what gives. Ga. has several defensive coaching changes as has FLA. WE haven't in the past years. So, please explain other than where these players are geographically playing and living , where is their edge. Past history from 1-2 decades doesn't really matter as you have stated before. Please enlighten me.

We've had 3 good years LATELY with 1 SEC East title and you think that's gonna give us the edge over UF, who has won 2 NC in the last 7 years and UGA who has 2 SEC East trophies in the last two years and was one play away from playing in the NC two years ago?? C'mon man. That can't be that hard to comprehend.

I got flamed for this same argument. Watch out, some of the usual dick bags on CT will see your post and claim you're unappreciative and whining.

I guess you'd have to ask recruits like Nick Chubb and Sonny Michael why they signed with UGA when Marshall and that other All SEC running back are already there or why UGA can always attract top qb prospects that they have signed over the years again when their roster has been loaded with qbs.

FACILITIES is a factor to where these kids want to spend their next 3-4 years. They are young and impressionable.

True. Is there a ranking of SEC facilities that some reporter has created? I'm sure it has been done by now. Just curious where we stand. I know we've made significant improvements lately, but by no means do I think we're in the top 3 or 4.

I have seen facilities rankings before. As you would expect we are behind Alabama, Auburn, Florida, LSU, TN, GA. Of course, with our proposed upcoming facility additions / upgrades we are closing the gap more so with GA and TN, but still have a ways to go to catch Florida, Alabama, Auburn, LSU.

We are, and will be for the foreseeable future, at a major disadvantage in those rankings as most that I have seen give points for having the stadium on campus.

Pittman won MVP honors at a recent NFTC (Nike Football Training Camp) event in Orlando, which earned him an invite to The Opening. Way to work, Sherrod!

They really aren't as close to other schools as one might imagine. And of course, there is a huge difference in a town grown around a school's campus and a campus grown in a town.

But there are several documented points about this, you don't have to take my word for it:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/aliciaje...uits-decision/

http://populous.com/posts/college-fo...dent-athletes/

Out of 15 factors, the college athletes surveyed put playing facilities at #4 in importance, while campus housing and team facilities (weight rooms, practice facilities, etc.) were at 6th and 8th respectively. The #1 thing was academic reputation while their friends opinion of the school ranked last.

So it is easy to say that stuff doesn't matter, but all empirical evidence says it does.
