I think I remember reading the same. Still a long way to travel & no one on the team from that immediate area makes it a little tougher for the recruit & the parents.

I would really like to add Love to compliment a guy like Williams or flip out in the slot. Right now it seems unc has the edge by telling him he's an every down back at about 170lb.

In the ACC he very well could be, unfortunately for us.

Understand. USC is recruiting him as an athlete & telling him just that. If he wants to be strictly a RB then I don't think it's a matter of how hard we push.It's more a matter of telling him the truth while knowing it hurts our chances to sign him. (the end result is the same)

Also agree that he is much more likely to be a full time RB at unc than anywhere in the SEC. In fact, TJ Logan is already doing so at about 175lbs

Others that could be included: P. Williams, J. Merrick, A.J. Turner, V. Jefferson, O. Johnson, B. Love, T. Samuel, N. Murray, C. Clark, B. Sandifer, C. Ferrell, A. Caban, R. DeBerry, D. Cain, N. Hines, R. McCloud
I'd say that looks pretty good......top 10.....there's some serious talent in your 25.

Have you seen where Nunez has already starting recruiting players......BAW, Jr.

Milton is being recruited as a defensive linemen by most schools but USC likes him on offense.
somebody over at TBS must have an insider that doesn't think Washington is a commit. it is very strange.....also, GCC has our current class at #6, TBS #18.

Pretty confident. His sister goes to USC. Current commit Dante Sawyer is his teammate and they live right next to each other. They both talk about playing together at USC.

He said he had a good visit there. I listened to the interview he did on one of the local radio stations in Columbia right after his visit here.

Didn't know his sister goes to USC. Need to share that on VN...the natives there were feeling good about him.

That's a gamechanger.

Both really good ideas.

But, Vols fans are really gonna have to make some fundamental adjustments to the way they follow recruiting after this gamechanger.

I've never really analyzed past recruiting classes this closely but it seems like the Gamecock footprint is getting a little bigger. Probably 90% of our offers are going to out-of-state recruits and it's looking likely that we get players from places like Missouri, Louisiana and NJ.

BAW and Nunez have different personalities from what I have read. Nunez is a quiet guy apparently. I don't think its really a good comparison. But according to the pay sites, he has been reaching out to other players.

If he is a quite guy, when he does "reach out" it may make more of an impact! Quite leaders can be really efficient and effective!!

GCC has a headline on social media that we are working a UNC Commitment with a possible flip. Do not have an account with them, but I am hoping it is Veal or Harrison. Could be Andre Smith.
