I don't think fsu is a favorite here, and I think that their momentum is just people looking for some school to CB him too. Look at their depth chart, they have three 4-5 Star RB's who are RS FR or true FR. Then they are the leader for both Jacques Patrick and Johnny Frasier, who are both Top 3 RB's on 247's rankings. Frasier may announce sooner than later, but Patrick could wait until NSD or an all american game.

miami has three 4 Star RB's committed this cycle, and they got a great one last year in Yearby. They're taking so many RB's this cycle b/c Duke is leaving early and they only have Yearby and a current Soph named Edwards after that. So they are really thin at RB and it makes sense for them to recruit 3 RB's this cycle.

I think ohio st is too far, since he said wisconsin is too far.

SC has the best looking depth chart for him to get on the field, we've produced 2 consecutive All SEC level RB's, we run the ball a lot and we're not that much farther away from him than Tallahassee. Plus we have his buddy Skai on the team already and have a committable offer out to his current teammate, Damon.

I also think that had he not committed to fau so early, his rankings/ratings would be much higher. He has great size for an RB and he's faster than 99% of the RB's that size.

To be fair, IDK if he would start over a healthy Wilds or Carson next season, but that also begs the question 'will those guys be healthy, b/c they've been injured a good portion of their careers here?' Those 2 will have a superior knowledge of the playbook, since they've been here 4+ seasons, but Scarlett's natural ability is phenomenal.
Spot on!

What does your RB board look like? Are you saying Scarlett isn't in our coaches' picture or is there someone better in your opinion for our RB needs?

the best thing we have going for us with him is that Miami already has three 4* RB and FSU is probably going to get 2-3 of the same quality as Miami......he isn't going to OSU, too far.
So who does that leave....us.

Scarlett told a FSU guy today saying Miami and Carolina lead with FSU behind those two. With the group of Miami RB already committed, things are looking up for us. If he visits us as he said, I think we have a good shot.

Just read Josh Newberg of Noles247

"Florida State was once the front runner for St. Thomas Aquinas 4-star RB Jordan Scarlett, but now the 'Noles trail Miami, Ohio State and South Carolina for his services. Scarlett cites a lack of consistent communication for the drop in interest. However, he admits that could change when he visits FSU next week. Scarlett said he plans to be on FSU's camp next week, but won't be participating. It'll be a chance for FSU to get back in his good graces. Scarlett has not been in Tallahassee since last year's Miami/FSU game. Scarlett says he's been thinking about making a commitment announcement at The Opening. When asked who it would be if he decided today, Scarlett replied, "Miami or South Carolina".

If he announces at The Opening, I just don't see him picking us. Talk about a 20 minute 180.

I think the opportunity we can provide Scarlett VASTLY surpasses the one miami can give him. We have better coaches, better facilities, play against better competition, and have a more favorable depth chart for 2015 and beyond than Miami with their 3 current 4 star RB commits.

However, Scarlett visited iami 3 times in the past 3 months, decommitted the day after visiting miami last, and it's only a short drive down the road from his home.... So if here were to announce at The Opening, I would think miami would be the safe pick. He's never visited SC, but we have had guys in the past commit w/o visiting, but not on Scarlett's national recruiting level.

Hopefully he holds off until after The Opening in that case.

It does say a lot that he thinks that highly of us having never visited.

everything you said is exactly right.....but Josh Newberg's comments almost imply that he's looking forward to the FSU visit next week......I think he's staying in Florida. If he shows up in Columbia in a couple of weeks, well that changes things.

yep, I saw that and how one could interpret it that way. I guess how I looked at it was that Scarlett has had this FSU visit planned since he decommitted and wants to see it through. FSU is still pushing for Patrick and Frasier, both are similar to Scarlett, but not as fast. Newburg, the FSU Staff writer, asked Scarlett a question about if the visit could get them back on top of his list. Scarlett said the visit could help them. However, if the fsu coaches haven't consistently contacted him, they have their reasons.

So I read this as an fsu writer tried to put a positive spin "if we want him we could have him," and/or, "he'll change his thinking after he visits us," on Scarlett saying that fsu fell out of favor. I don't know Scarlett or Newberg, so I'm just speculating, but this perspective made sense to me.
