    Close to 30 if we get some December grads we can roll back into 2011.

    Yes. We seemed to have hit a dry hump.

    Ask me at the end of the summer. We should have double digit commits by then if we want to have a good class IMO.

    Not worried, still early. We can still get alot of players that i rate highly.

    Flores, Calahan, Thurston, ifedi, Cochran, Dillon, Javon Williams, Conor Crane, Powe,Hamilton, Yuri Wright, Shumate, are still open to schools. I believe it is time to deploy Cabral and EB.

    The pure number of offers out there is probably a little larger than normal. Especially with the recruits we are going after. I would like to see a few more but lets give it sometime. Remember there hasn't been any playing time under Embree yet. None of the recruits, with the exception of the spring game, have even had a chance to see him.

    What are you talking about. It's the beginning of May with NSD a mere nine months away. We need to be in full-blown panic mode now. I just jumped out of a window. Luckily I was on the first floor, so I wasn't seriously wounded, just skinned my knee. If we don't land 20 5* recruits by next week, all is lost!!!

    We've got 3 commits I really like and it's ahead of finding our quarterback.

    We're in really good shape now.

    Given the size of this class, if we're not at 8-12 with at least that number of "top 5s, getting an official visit" from other good prospects by the time fall camp rolls around... then I'll get worried.

    Yes, I think it's okay to be concerned. I would've thought that we would have gotten some of the top CO lineman by now and a high tier quarterback. There's lots of interest, but frankly, the three commits we have now have a total of 5 offers between them. Seems very Hawkinish.

    I believe it would be called natural causes.

    Keep in mind that with prospects who commit this early that other programs back off. Norgard, in particular, has been telling programs that he's firm in his commitment and not interested in taking other visits. He'd likely have a half dozen BCS offers right now if he was playing the field. I think he's the #4 in-state prospect this year behind Callahan, Miles and Thurston (ahead of Baylis). Henington I'd probably put at #6 behind Baylis and Kozan. Catalon we will need to pull out all the stops to hold onto, as he's drawing a ton of attention, but I feel good since it's rare that EB loses a recruit after he gains a verbal. All are legit high major prospects.

    We are roughly sixty days from closing out the last recruiting cycle and there are complaints over 3 commits? :wow:

    I'm not doubting you, but that is the same old lines we heard over and over again with Hawkins' recruits. He would've had more offers if his grades were better, if he played better competition, if he wasn't hurt, if he sent out videos, he had a late growth spurt, he didn't want to stay in his region, he was under the radar, etc. etc. Heard it all and, so far anyway, it's no different. The three current commits are woefully short on scholarships. Yes, there may be a legit reason (as there always seems to be with our commits) but it is what it is.

    Apples and oranges. Super early commits who decide not to even do the camp circuit are a different animal than guys who are unrated or un-offered in late fall.

    There is a difference between getting these types of players in February/March of 2011 versus January/February of 2012. But I doubt you understand the difference.

    Flores is way too high. Norgard is way too low. Flores is getting attention right now due to his size, similar to Marc Mustoe last year. Thurston and Callahan are a clear cut #1 and #2 as far as in-state linemen go IMO.

    Flores is big and also athletic. The guy blocks down field and pulls from the LT position. He has the higher ceiling, because he is still growing, Flores is going to be a beast.

    I actually think Callahan has the biggest upside because he is still growing too. Would not surprise me to see Callahan playing in college at 6-7/320.

    Thurston is much more polished than either though. I am going to be really disappointed if we miss on either Thurston or Callahan.

    At this stage it is normal to have different opinions about each prospect. You say Calahan, i say Flores, which is okay.
