You have no favorite boards.
right now for our recruiting coming down the stretch... Its not too surprising since we BB and staff had a very late start of it. It does however, show we still have a large hill to climb in regard to our "brand" and the recognition of it. You look at TN visit lists and their options of very highly recruited kids, and you have to say its pretty impressive for a coach and staff most kids in the South have never heard of - except a key hire in Thigpen and keeping Jay Graham on staff as well.
We are also behind for 2014 as well to a degree as most schools have already been recruiting 2014 kids for awhile now. I think this Spring and the camps we put on are going to be really, really big for us. I'll be interested to see how its run and the attendance we get vs staffs from the past. I think if we can somehow keep working on Frazier and get him and the LB from West Memphis to buy in and WANT to be Hogs - we have a GREAT foundation of instate kids and a BIG TIME QB in Peavy from which to work off of. I really hope we get all over the LB from West Memphis in a hurry if he is as good as advertised. Losing out to an Ole Miss or Auburn for that kid wouldn't be a good precedent to start in the Eastern part of the state - and that goes for the DT from Jonesboro as well.
Having said the above, this IS the best recruiting staff we've had, so I'm excited and hopeful that we will start to see some big things in regard to recruiting for 2014..
Yeah I feel the same way. I can't believe the love these kids have for tenn or ole miss. Sounds like ole miss has a shot at Dan skipper. At first I thought we were gonna land several studs this year now it seems like reeve Koehler might be the only big timer we get if we don't land AT or Collins.
I just hope next year Madre London is as good as some say he will be. We land him rafe and the rest of the instate kids and we can be on our way to a great class.
