Yeah, I know recruiting is mercurial and that there is a LONG way to go between now and NSD 2015. And I think very highly of the players we do presently have, I just think the trend in recent years seems to be moving towards players announcing earlier in the process.

I also know Spurrier's M.O. w/r/t recruiting and that we tend to pick up steam once the season is going. The updates just seem so underwhelming of late and anything remotely positive is just "Player X is giving South Carolina a look". Our ranking has plummeted.

Okay. It just...sucks, I guess. Venting over.

#2 SDE Marquavius Lewis (247Sports' Crystal Ball is 100% USC)
#3 DT D.J. Jones (100% USC)
#5 WDE Dante Sawyer (100% USC)
#8 ILB Davon Durant (100% USC)

We never have a ton of players committed at this point. We always pick up steam towards the end of the cycle. Why are people worried about this?

I think it's because commits seem to be committing earlier and earlier.

Just out of curiosity, Does anyone know what is the largest number of commitments we have had at this time of the year?

There's some truth to that.

Right now we have 7 commits (if you count Washington) for the '15 class.

At this point in time in the previous years, we had:
3 for the '14 class
6 for the '13 class
5 for the '12 class
2 for the '11 class
2 for the '09 class

So on avg we would have 4 players committed at this point in time, over the past 6 classes. However, the bulk of our commitments over the past several years usually come in the summer b/w May and September.

Thanks for the info. This should calm some people down hopefully.

Just wrong! We have 8 players committed and only 2 schools have a better star average per player with 9 months and a season of football to play before signing day. We are trending very high with several talented and highly ranked kids, we could end up with one of our best classes ever and this is what you think right now?

Should having the number 1 overall pick in the draft be:

1. Helping us with recruits more than other years.
2. Not really making much of a difference when it comes to recruiting.

I think it should make a difference, but not just with the #1 pick. Kids will see all the guys from our program get drafted and realize that they can reach that level of success as well

Honestly, I'm not a "nay-sayer". I understand the process. Recruits seem to be committing earlier in the cycle (that's the trend the past few cycles) and it seems like a lot of guys we were in the mix on just didn't pan out. It happens, and I'm sure we'll have a great class (as we have the past few years). And maybe the commits we have committing so early makes it FEEL as though we're lagging, when we're in fact not.

It's a recruiting impressions thread. It's meant for us to discuss our impressions. Right now I'd like to see more movement, but I, personally, am not panicking.

His composite should be rising soon, now that Rival's JUCO rankings have come out and he's a 5.9 4* per them...

I'm afraid I have some potential bad news. TBS is now saying they would be surprised if the following players are able to enroll in Summer 1:
Wideman
Thomas
Blue
Smalls
Ritchie
It doesn't say they won't make it in at all, it only says Summer 1. So I guess we'll see how things unfold.

On a good note, Key posted on twitter he knows where he is going to college 100% and he will announce this summer. Coaches are confident it's Carolina.

Shame...these kids need to decide if they want to play football or think about what could have been. It's just frustrating considering how difficult it is these days to NOT qualify. I teach high school and if you have a pulse you can easily make Bs in almost every class.
