But the biggest addition was Colorado State and Ohio State in 2008 and 2009....
At least they are Division 1A schools. There are tons of teams in the SEC that play 1AA schools. The problem 'SC faces, is none of the big football schools want to play. I give props to tOSU for scheduling 'SC. That will be a fun one.

Rivals.com is where you want to be for LOI day.

Here are rankings of teams and their current verbal commitments:

http://rivals100.rivals.com/teamrank.asp?SID=880

Verbals mean nothing until they are inked on the 2nd, but it sheds some light as to who is doing what.

Florida is cleaning house. USC, ND, PSU, Georgia, and Texas doing well also.

Nebraska doing OK, not great under Callahan.

Miami taking a bath.

Also, I've heard that ESPNU will be airing 6 hours of recruiting coverage that day/evening. THey promise "Election Night"-style coverage. I guess that means that a few 5-star kids will be too close to call and some sort of controversy in Florida...

"bath"=UM is feeling the pain this recruiting season. Substandard play, embarrasing bowl game, and the firing of several asst. coaches have hurt them badly w/ the blue chips. They just had a great QB decommit and verbal to PSU(Pat Devlin). Coker is in trouble.

As far as the Huskers go I was refering to their recruiting success as well. Their class looks fine, but they missed on a few they would have gotten in years past, and lost a verbal commitment from a QB to K State I believe. Callahan did well w/ recruiting last year, so we'll have to see what kind of team he has in a few years.

Yes, and if Tom Lemming sees his (very large) shadow, the F'ing Irish will have the #1 recruiting class.

I'm surprised he doesn't already have their class #1. I watched part of the Army All American game, and all I heard was about ND's great class. I just assumed they were number 1.

Things to look for tomorrow. Vidal Hazleton might decommit from 'SC and go to Penn St. Apparently, his family is pressuring him to stay close to home.

Meanwhile, Percy Harvin might actually decommit from Florida to go to 'SC.

Recruiting has become insane. I really think there should be an early signing period, like Basketball.

Ah yes, the AAA Game. Otherwise known as the "Lemming Fantasy Camp" or "Mention ND as one of your five finalists and you can play in my All Star game broadcasted on the same network that greases ND's pockets- Game"

As a fan of PSU, I've heard of these rumblings for quite a while. I don't think the kid ever was 100% sure. I think with the Nits grabbing Devlin he just might switch. Who knows..

that would be quite a feat, given how hot U. Meyer has been this off season. Still, if one team could pull it off, it's USC.

That might work, but then all this decommitting of recruits would just happen in the fall as apposed to now. Plus, if I'm a big time recruit who is at all unsure of my choice, I wouldn't sign in the fall anyhow.

Coaches that bitch about their recruits bailing on them at the last second are the same coaches that pressure the kids into "verballing" ahead of time in the first place. They cause their own problems, IMO.

What needs to go away is the entire "verbal commitment" thing, which is meaningless to start with and only leads to hard feelings when a 17-18 year old kid has a change of heart. (ie: Logan-El)

Good luck tomorrow(or later today, whichever you prefer)

The latest episode of As the Recruit Turns.... Word is that Vidal wants to go out west to 'SC. However, his dad would like him to stay close to home. I really can't blame him.

Right now there are conflicting reports that VH has signed a letter of intent but that his dad is refusing to sign.

Crazy. but entertaining. I really wish I had ESPNU at work. That would rock.

LOL I've been hearing the same things. It's hard to say what is really going on between Father and son here. If Vidal is 100% for USC, then dad needs to step aside. If dad sees hesitation w/ his kid, he is doing the right thing by not signing the LOI. They do have until April 1 to announce, so today isn't like an "end all be all" thing. One thing is certain, Dad doesn't like Pete very much.

One story I heard was that on the afternoon back in December when Vidal verballed on ESPN, he was PSU when they left for the studio, but changed his mind by the time they got there. Even this past week Vidal admitted to someone (Farrell??) that he was 50/50. Perhaps its that kind of waivering that has dad concerned. You only get to do this once.

On another note, just how the heck does Bobby Bowden do it? Their recruiting was lagging all year, and then Signing Day comes and PRESTO, say hello to another awesome class. I guess with all the talent that state has every year, the Noles could fall on their butts and still come up with a top ten class.

All I have been hearing is how excited Vidal is about playing at USC and that he was trying to get his teammate Keiland Williams to sign with the Trojans. Here is the latest:

This is starting to tick me off. The fact that his father is saying all of these things to the press is sad. I really feel bad for the kid. He shouldn't be put in this type of position.
