See any similarities?
Yep? So? You worried about Georgia? They're doing just fine in recruiting.
Apparently they went after guys higher on their list first as they should. When you are talking about high tier teams, the instate kids don't get as much preferential treatment as they usually do. It's just part of the recruiting landscape.

I have no idea how you came to the conclusion I'm worried about UGA. I have no idea how you come to numerous bizarre conclusions you come up with including how having a highly rated DE in our own State who has very little interest in our program is a good thing. You do know that one of the guys ahead of Barnette was Rivers, right? Well he's gone & nobody believes he's coming back.

I'm not worried about Barnette & believe we've got some highly rated guys committed as this time. Don't see a flyer on the list. I'm just not so ignorant as to believe it is a good thing that our coaches were recruiting him & he has no interest. That's batxxxx crazy. Our coaches clearly feel he could help us, otherwise they wouldn't not only recruit but offer an in-state prospect.

Then again, I responding to a guy that believes the head football coach meeting & speaking to prospects considering his program he is a waste of time. A guy that knows exactly the reasons why anybody who wants to meet Spurrier wants to do so, even though he doesn't know the person or Spurrier.

I look forward to your next incredibly asinine statement. I'm fairly certain it will be a short wait.

BTW thanks for telling me about the recruiting landscape, I was buying PK's newsletter at Capital Newsstand, as were others on this site, before the better part of you was dribbling down somebody's leg.

It doesn't matter if he's a highly rated DE in our own state. We can't pick up 5 highly rated DEs. We need to pick up a few and move on to another position. We already have the highest rated DE from our state.

Right now we've got 1 DE committed in this class & 1 JUCO who might, or might not, make it in. They offered Barnette for a reason. The reason I mentioned he's an in-state guy is because once you put that offer out it's very bad business to slow play or not make good on the offer. They had to be prepared to take him.

There is nothing for it, man. The guy was hurt we didn't offer sooner so he obviously did have interest at some point. Use some common sense. We can't help that recruits get their feelings hurt about petty things like this and that effects them. We have an ordered wish list of players just like everyone else and we offer players when we do for a reason. If you offer too many DE at once it hurts your chances to get even one.

So you are just going to gloss over the fact that we have offers and are in very good shape with Key, Ferrell and Lewis? How many DE's do you think we are going to be taking this class? It's like 2-3

Don't forget about Sawyer. Doubt we get Ferrell and Key is pretty undersized. Could end up playing TE or receiver.

Blackshear, Lewis, and Sawyer and call it day. If we do get Key and he wants to play DE, no doubt he would have to RS his first year to get his weight up and to get some separation from the other DE's.

We're fine at DE.....more than likely Thomas will make it in. And don't forget whammy wants us to play the 3-4 on passing downs.....if it works out putting BAW, Skai and Walton on the field at the same time and running it more often, that's great. Let's not look for a problem where there is none.

I was counting Sawyer as the JUCO Conway was talking about. The other two, I don't think we'll get Ferrell but he still has us as warm. Key I think there is a good chance. I like him a lot as an OLB to start out but could put on some weight and move down later. He has a good frame for it. He can eat all the steak and potatoes he wants and more now that the NCAA says so. Will see what happens with some of the others. I don't know what is going on with Wideman and Thomas qualifying.

DE Michael Barnett of Woodland has plans to visit four schools this summer and is calling them the top four schools on his list. They are Georgia, Florida State, NC State and LSU.
“I would say they are all about even,” Barnett said. “I think NC State is showing me a little more interest than the other schools but not that much more.”
National Signing Day is when he plans to announce his decision. Barnett said there is a possibility he could announce before then but added it was unlikely.
As for Clemson and USC he said, “South Carolina is out but I’m still showing some interest in Clemson. I wouldn’t say they’re a big factor though.”
Barnett said his decision will come down to “the best fit for me” and added that he would like to attend a school where he can major in broadcasting.
His visits for the summer have not been scheduled and he does not plan to attend any camps.

I think the same could be said the other way around. He had "eyes elsewhere" and never really had any interest in us.

Seems he's pretty much always been a kid who was going to leave the state.

Well we still are in the game with JUCO's Marquavius Lewis and Dante Sawyer. Sawyer may grow into a DT but right now he is a DE. It's a good thing that our program is to the point where we don't really have room for Barnett
