Default RB Recruiting (2015 and 2016)

Looking at our current RB's we have:

Mike Davis- JR
Brandon Wilds- RS JR
Shon Carson- RS JR
David Williams- RS FR

I know Mike Davis is going to declare and that Brandon Wilds has "considered the option" of going. Shon Carson is a wild card, does he play baseball or does he stay etc. I don't think this is going to happen but we could lose our top 3 RB's from this years team after this season, only leaving David Williams. That is scary, from a depth stand point. I do know we have Jamari Smith, who IMHO should be moved back to RB.

I know we have two RB's committed right now:

Mon Denson
A.J Turner

How good are they, what are their running styles etc.? Because if I had to bet, I would think we lose at least 2 of the 3 from our current team forcing us to play at least one of these guys early.

Also just looking ahead, what does the 2016 RB recruiting look like? Any standout guys we are after etc?

Mon Denson looks pretty good. He isn't going to wow you with athleticism but he looks like serviceable.

I also know for 2016 that we need to get Tavean Feaster but I think Clemson is a factor with him. Let's hope we land him.

Very heavy Clemson lean. If we get him it would be a big surprise.

Exciting stuff.

Wilds would be insane to leave early. He's good, but he's not done anything that would warrant being drafted. (And I love Wilds and think he's got a bad rap post A&M game.)

Davis is gone, Carson is not a long term solution. We have no idea what we have in David Williams. And while I'm happy we have Denson and Turner on board, it would be nice to land an elite 4-5 star RB in 2015 AND 2016. And as of now, I don't think either qualifies as a game-changer a la Marcus, Davis, Chubb, etc. (And I am the first to say I hope I am wrong and either or both are the best to ever play here.)

Wilds was rated a low 3-star back out if high school, and he has proven to be a darn good RB (at least in my opinion). Turner and Denson are both high 3-stars with a chance to be 4 by the year's end. Definitely way too early to say these two guys won't be legit top-end backs.

Don't know if he's a lean anywhere right now. He was recently quoted as saying he is taking his time. I think he enjoys the process. Clemson and I think FSU or Auburn were the ones recruiting him the hardest. I'll try and find where I read that. Still wouldn't be surprised if he ended up a clemmons tiger.

It is too early and I, for one, don't mean to be negative about recruits who just started their senior seasons. I'm intrigued by Denson because his size seems to be the most suited for SEC play and he very well could end up being a 4-star a la Davis (as could Turner, obviously). It would just be nice to be in the mix on a Lattimore/Chubb type (which I know do not grow on trees).

We are gonna have to stop hoping for our 3 stars to play like 5 stars and sign some real top talent at skill positions eventually if we ever want to take the next step

I agree with this wholeheartedly! USC has proven it's worth, you CAN win here! No reason not to go after more Alshon, Marcus & Clowney types. Yes, I know they were all SC kids, but right now according to Rivals, we have verbals from 4-star players from seven different states. The USC brand is expanding it's reach. Most of those verbals are from positions other than DT, RB & WR, which in my view is where we are hurting.

Mon Denson will play at 220 or more and is faster than any back we have on the team other than Williams......he is close to Nick Chubb. Huge upside. No way we're getting Feaster according to most.

the reason Mon was rated 3* was because the rating was at LB since most schools were looking for him to play there....he's only 5'11" so that hurt him.....we were the ones that wanted him to play RB....his offense played a spread last year, so he didn't get that many carries.......coach changed the offense this year to make him the featured back.....he should get a new rating sometime this fall which most think he will go to a four star. Read his thread.....lots of good info there....elcid thinks he's going to be great.

I know he's already made up his mind, but Davis shouldn't leave early. RBs are not a premium in the NFL anymore, and most teams feel they can pick up a value back in the 3rd to 6th rounds. With the talent coming out this year Davis would be a 3rd to 5th round choice at best. Wilds would be an UFA, regardless of what he does at the combine.

These guys need to stop getting bad advice.

And our coaches need to start "re-recruiting" our guys. I respect HBC for not being like some other coach in this state who puts the program ahead of its players and potentially cost those players millions of dollars; however, there is a difference between being a man of principle and being borderline apathetic when it comes to our juniors.

I think in some ways it's just as bad to hold a guy back as it is to let guys make dumb decisions and leave too early.

Granted, I don't have an ounce of hard evidence to support my suspicions, but our program has made it clear that we don't stand in a guy's way when he wants out. I think that has cost our team and cost guys on the pro level (especially this year).
