Definitely a respectable haul. However, I think people are frustrated with us not being able to land that surefire elite top 10 back when seemingly every team around us is doing it UT, Clem, UNC, etc... Especially given the fact that we had no RBs signed in 2014 and none committed yet for 2015. Not to mention our great recent track record with Lattimore and Davis. Can't be that hard, can it?

That's my frustration in regards to RB recruiting. Like I've said, Turner and Shaw would be a good haul, but with players like Scarlett, Williams, Williams, and Frasier on the board, seems like we could have landed one of those elite guys.

IMO it is not too hard to understand. We have not really produced elite RBs at the next level. Until that happens we will always struggle getting those kids. However it is changing, just slowly.

Exactly what these guys said.

Nobody said "upset" but a haul of Shaw and Turner would just be kind of meh...

Maybe it is just me wanting to get some elite players here to win the SEC. Idk if we can get over that hump.

I'm not all that concerned at the RB position with the stable of backs we already have, and we still have a couple of prospects out there to go. By the way, the last couple of commits put us at #3 on Rivals.com and moved us ahead of Clemsux, so we're doing something right!!

Only a few spots left and we're still making offers. Amazing that we might have a complete class even before the start of the season. Great job by the staff

Sawyer, Lewis, Jones, Turner, Shaw, T. Williams, Frasier, Bailey, Merrick, Charles, Davis, and Abernathy still left on the board that we have a chance with. Going to be interesting to see how it finishes out.

How do we keep losing RBs to teams that already have serious numbers of talent committed. Scott last year (when TN already had a Hurd and Paulk, now they have Kamara and Reid this cycle already). Georgia got to super talents last year (Michel and Chubb). Scarlett just committed to Miami when they already have two other top RBs.

Granted, I know that we could get pickups like Turner and Williams as soon as tomorrow, but if RBs are on the look out for playing time how in the world are other teams tearing it up so well with multiple top tier backs, and we can't grab one? It is a bit frustrating.
The biggest factor for the last 2 years is that Sands is not a very good recruiter (and that's putting it mildly.)
Ending with Turner and Shaw would be very underwhelming, as we'd basically end up with 2 guys with few major offers at RB. I'm glad to have Jamari Smith on the roster, but his recruitment was similar to Turner and Shaw, and he ended up on D, which is where most other schools projected him.

I'm pretty sure they're just listing who's left on the board, not who we'll take total. For instance, that list included 4 RB's and we're only taking the first 2 to jump on board.

They were flagged by the NCAA. They were supposed to be here for Summer II but apparently they can't get their stuff together academically and have to wait and see if they're going to be able to enroll in August. Not good for the secondary.

Why do you think we should be able to get one of 2 kids from Florida, or 1 from NC or 1 from SC. It hard to get the top players at any position. Let's see how things play out first.

I almost can't believe it. Things are definitely looking up for the GAMECOCKS!!

Who would have thought we would be 75%+ full with six weeks until school starts?

With Turner now on board who is the most probable guy to pair with him that we could land? Is it basically between Bradrick Shaw, Ty'son Williams, and Johnny Fraiser? Maybe an outside shot with Scarlett if he visits?

Of course it is early in the process. No other team in the top 20 has more than 19 except BC at #17, which has 23 (all 3-stars).

Congratulations to all of the recruits and welcome aboard.

Thank you coaches for a great recruiting class so far.
