We're a week before signing day and I can guarantee that some of you will be happy and some of you will be sad.
With the Decommitment of Davin Bellamy from FSU on the same day he agreed to take an official visit to Oregon. Does Oregon have a good shot at Davin?
Oregon has a lot of work to do. It seems like Georgia is right there in front. I don't see him leaving the Southeast.
Any players that will sign with FSU that might be surprises?Ramsey or Gholston perhaps.
They have a good shot at Ramsey. Right now I would say somebody that's off the public board, a commitment that's going elsewhere. Bell, who is going to Kentucky right now. They have room for a DL and possibly two OL.
Do you think that when a recruit commits early from high school in the recruiting process to a school that there should be an early signing day period, even if that student athlete does not have the requirements to graduate early?
Yeah. I've always felt there should be an early signing day period and it should happen right around Thanksgiving.
Jalen Ramsey, where does he end up?
I think he ends up in the state of Florida. Florida or Florida State, but I couldn't tell you which just yet.
Hi Corey,What's it going to take for my alma mater NC State to become relevant on the recruiting trail like it was in the years of Chuck Amato? We can't even sign multiple guys in the top 25 prospects in our own state!
They're going to have to continue to do a better job in the surrounding areas. And they have to win more football games. When you win, you draw the top players. Joining the SEC wouldn't hurt either.
How do you see Miami finishing up? Thomas, Collins, Kirkland, Bostwick, Coley, and Grace have the Canes in their top 2 or 3 could they land them all?
I think they'll land no less than half of those guys. I don't think they'll land all six. I think Coley is going to FSU, but they're in on the other five.
Will it be USC or UF for LB Quinton Powell?
Corey What kind of player can Tyshon Dye be at Clemson?
The one thing I like about him is he is basically ready to play in college. I could see him make an immediate contribution.
What are the odds the Gamecocks get 4-star LB Yannick Ngakoue?
I think Maryland is the team to beat. They're in on him, but Maryland is where I'm predicting on signing day.
Will LSU sign another 4 or 5 star recruit or are they pretty much finished at this point?
I would say that looking at their class that they're done for this year. They'll be starting on their 2014 list.
Where does James Clark end up? Any chance for Northwestern?
No. I think Clark ends up at Florida.
Will you get any sleep in the next week?
I will continue to average about 7-8 hours a night. I am not making any decisions. My college eligibility ran out 14 years ago.
What do you make of Ira Denson's visit to Miami?
Nothing. He's going to be at Florida State on signing day.
Do you think Florida or Miami team will get Bostwick?
Where do you think Matthew Thomas will end up?
I think right now it's about 51-49 to Miami.
Will Auburn hold on to any of the 5 star guys (Liner, Foster, Lawson) they had commited at one point?
I think they'll hold on to Liner and Foster. I think Lawson will be going to Tennessee.
why do we see so many decommits lately? Why don't these guys wait to make decisions?
I think at the time a kid makes a decision, he feels like it's the place he wants to be. But when the season ends, coaching changes happen. It's hard to wait so if you think the situation is right, you commit and you don't want the spot to be taken. It's frustrating for fans and it's frustrating for us covering them. I understand the decommitments and the floating of schools.
Does Prevot sign with USC, or does he stay close to home and sign with A&M?
I think he sticks with his USC commit.
Do you think Elijah Daniel is solid to Ole Miss? He visits Auburn this weekend.
I think these days if a prospect is visiting Auburn, they're definitely in play. But I do think he'll end up at Ole Miss.
Are you amazed that Willie Taggart and USF has gotten more done on the recruiting trail landing more top talent in 3 weeks than Skip Holtz did in 3 years?
No. Willie Taggart is a much better recruiter than Skip Holtz is. Skip wanted to run the program more as a CEO and Will is more hands on in getting the players in.
Does Miami finish in the top 15 of recruiting rankings?
If they close like I expect them to, they'll be right there. They'll be borderline.
Will Alabama hold onto Robert Foster or do you see him possibly flipping to Pitt on signing day?
It depends. I think they'll hold on to Foster if they want to. If Foster flips to Pitt it won't be because he didn't want to be at Alabama.
Where do you think Asiantii Woulard ends up?
Where do u think Johnathan Ford ends up AU or UT?
I think he ends up at Tennessee.
Where do you think Skai Moore ends up?
Skai today said that he's down to Rutgers, SC, Vanderbilt. He's really a difficult one to read. I think right now I would give a slight edge to Vanderbilt, but that could change before signing day.
Any chance Mizzou gets Travis Johnson?
I don't think so. I think he'll go to South Florida. I see him staying close to home. I honestly think Cincinnati would be his choice if not South Florida.
Where do you think Jojo Kemp ends up?
Oh, man...that's a tough one. Right now I would say Kentucky has a slight edge over South Florida.
Where does Laremy Tunsil end up?
I still feel like Georgia is the team to beat, but Ole Miss is coming on strong.
Does Henry poggi stay with michigan or does he go to bama?
I talked to Poggi at the Under Armour game and he was very emphatic that he was going to Michigan and very insulted that someone thought he was going somewhere else.
Do the Florida gators end up with any more recruits come signing day?
They might have to do some things with their numbers. There are certain commitments that they would accept. They're pretty close to full. They might be facing a numbers issue.
Prediction on where Vonn Bell will end up?
Where does Jason Hatcher end up?
I would say he likely ends up where he was originally which was USC.
With your proposed early signing day(November) what happens when there coaches leave for another job before they even get on campus?
For kids that are opting to signing early, those would be the kids that are married to the program regardless who is coaching there. Among the upper echelon schools, the kids would go there if Carrot Top was coaching there. It's their lifelong dream to go there.
Any last minute OL prospects for FSU?
It's going to be somebody that's a little off the radar right now. I would expect them to get one or two more, but they're scrambling right now. Make no mistake about it, they are scrambling to find a couple of extra OL in this class.
WERE DO U THINK KEITH BRYANT END UP
Where do you think Daeshon Hall will up on NSD? A&M, TCU or Washington?
I would say Daeshon flips to A-M.
Will Bama lose any of its plethora of committed Running Backs on signing day?
I think Tenpenny ends up at Arkansas.
Mackensie Alexander...AU bound?
Yes. Today. Tomorrow, he will likely be headed to Mississippi State. On Friday, Clemson. And Saturday, A-M.
Corey, what are you hearing about Tarean Folston? there seems to be a lot of movement on that front. Thanks.
I talked with his coach yesterday. He's legitimately torn between Auburn and Notre Dame. He wants to stick with his commitment to Notre Dame, but the distance thing is coming into play. AU is closer to home and the weather is nicer.
Will Richt close the deal with both Alvin Kumara and Montravious Adams?
Yeah. Kumara, Adams. Yup, he's got them.
Lay off of the kids when you see them on Twitter. It's a tough decision for them. Fans don't understand the emotions that go into these decisions. I ask fans go easy on them on Twitter when they see them next week.
