    Kid looks like he is 30.

    This staff has maintained a good focus on bringing in numbers of solid DL prospects. Hope this trend continues.

    Good to hear, Duff.

    Gaines is now the #18 DT on Scout. Competition is going to pick up for him. Our best shot is to separate ourselves early.

    We could use a big DT again this cycle who is ready to play early.

    Gaines should be one our top targets on the defensive side of the ball.

    Rivals has called it for Boise State but none of the other services have it yet. ESPN and 247s don't even report a BSU offer at this point.

    Disappointing. Vital that we sign at least 1 DT this year after leaving 2013 empty.

    Absolutely agree, defense starts up front and inside.

    We also need to start winning recruiting battles with Boise and other schools that we have been losing recruits to over the past few years.

    Do we know how heavily the current staff was recruiting this guy? Duff posted earlier that the new staff was going to honor the scholarship offer, but it sounded like Gaines was looking forward to hearing more from the new staff at that point. Could this be a situation where they were prioritizing other prospects?

    I don't know. Very few DTs in our Profile Index right now and, of those, the majority are prospects Duff put in because they were guys to watch in our recruiting geography -- not guys we had necessarily offered.

    Hey guys. Long time no talk.

    I can't say how much effort they put in/how much of a priority he was for your staff, but I do know that he was told by our staff that he was the top guy on the board for us at his position. All indications are we were after him quite hard.

    Thanks for the info.

    We really don't know, either, whether Gaines was more of a target for the last staff than this one. Good prospect either way. I think you'll be happy to get his signature.

    Also, is it just me or does he look a lot like the older brother from Wonder Years? :smile2:

    Kinda! Maybe a much larger version of him. What were the names? Wayne and Kevin I think?

    I always wondered why Kevin didn't snap and go postal on Wayne during an episode.

    I hope to wander in here a few more times in the future. Didn't seem to be much point in the offseason and haven't seen as many players that both our teams are after recently. I swear for a while there it looked like every other player both schools were recruiting.

    I don't know that we were battling, but even assuming we were... we all need to understand that in recruiting we will only end up signing 5-15% of the guys for whom we see reported scholarship offers.

    It's going to be a very long and annoying recruiting season if there's a "Lament to a Lost Recruiting Battle" every time a guy give a commitment somewhere else.

    ^^^^ Naturally, there will be. It's always a long and annoying recruiting season, especially during this slow this time of year. Hopefully it heats up for us soon.

    No longer committed to Boise State, but did pick up an offer from UW.

    Now that I know he's not going to be a Buff, I can finally post this.

    Greg Gaines is Wayne from Wonder Years.

    Haha. That's funny because he looked familiar to me but I couldn't think of who he looked like.
