Montae Nicholson committed to WVU.
Whoa, didn't see that one coming. Big get for them.
dont see it listed anywhere
??? Where are u seeing that?
WE ARE! And we will always be...
I apologize guys. I seen it on another board, it was premium so I couldn't read it. It was his picture and the headline read early commit. I looked at it wrong and the story was about Ricky Rogers. My bad
Whew. Thank God.
iirc Nicholson is pretty keen on getting a good education. I know those words usually don't hold much water with football recruits and most say that and end up at a place like Florida State, Auburn, etc. but Nicholson really seemed like he had a good head on his shoulders and i'm a bit more inclined to believe his desire to get a good education. I think he stays in the B1G, personally. Just hope he's with the good guys and not UM/OSU.
I realize that its the SEC where oversigning is the rule not the exception, but I just noticed that Texas A&M has 33 commits. Seriously WTF is going on down there? I'd love to see how they make these numbers work.

SWiltfong247: Four-star RB Greg Bryant verbally commits to Notre Dame per @BGI_JasonSapp. http://t.co/5nWvZtdJ via @247Sports #ND #Irish
And the rich get richer....
And ND picked up a commit from a big time 2014 OL from Ohio yesterday.
The (f)Ags on tBB were saying that a few of them are EEs, and they took a smaller class than they had to last year.
According to them, they're trying to get to 35. They're the leader for Ricky Seals-Jones and are serious contenders for 2-3 more IIRC.
I don't like their schollie distribution at all though, they're taking like 10 WRs this year. Most are pretty darn good, but that's a terrible way to balance a roster.
They'll regret doing this in three years, where if their success continued they would have a lot of talent in the state and not many spots to fill.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Call me crazy, but I think going undefeated and competing for national titles may help a team's recruiting efforts.
Virginia LB Matt Rolin has switched his verbal commitment from South Carolina to Florida.
2013 OLB De'Niro Laster has committed to Minnesota.
For those that remember, Laster visited PSU for a game a few weeks ago. I'm guessing he was a backup plan to Issah.
Not quite recruiting, but related (i.e. David Williams). Marcus Lattimore is going pro.
Just a poor decision, IMO. But I've always thought he's a very good player and person and wish him best of luck.
South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore will forgo his final year of eligibility and enter the 2013 NFL Draft.
Very poor decision IMO. His stock certainly has dropped with his injury. Would it not be better to recover, return, do your thing and then improve your stock in next year's draft? Then again, isn't this the second year in a row he has suffered an injury? Tough decision, but I don't agree with it being the right move.
A&M just got Jones to commit they are up to 34.

I guess it's possible he wants to avoid a third injury next year. But still...I'm with you. Much better to rehabilitate both your knee and your draft stock.
I hope he's getting his degree.
aTm is already getting that fuzzy SEC math I see. Supposedly, they are looking at a 35 or 36 size class, which is very very very odd. That is 10 or 11 early entries? Really?
For a RB, I don't think it's that bad of a decision. RB's in the NFL have a short shelf life, why not get in the league now and get the clock ticking on your shot at FA, try and get as much money as you can before your body gives out. And the thing is, there are very few high 1st round RB's, plus with the new cap on rookie deals, he's not getting the monster deal guys used to get. And how far do you think he'll really fall. His biggest knock will be the injuries, and coming back another year won't change that.
"You have to perform at a consistently higher level than others. That's the mark of a true professional." JVP
It was 100% when he signed that he was in it for three years. Even given his extraordinary circumstances, it is no surprise to see him go. And I don't see the degree being significant to him. Hopefully he gets the chance to come back for it. This is the story every kid should look at and say ... "the degree is important because". Nothing but my opinion, but ... good luck Mr Lattimore.
He can't afford to risk another injury at the college level.
He can always go back to finish college, but one more season-ending injury and he won't have another chance to cash in.
