    Football Recruiting

    Haven't heard much over the past couple of weeks about football recruitment. Anybody hear anything going on with recruits?

    Couple of Interesting tidbits:

    We made the Duaron Williams first cut. Listed as high for interest level. Lots of schools list as high but that is still encouraging to be in it at this point. 6' 4" OL who is a rivals 3 star with a 5.7 rating. 15th ranked OG.

    We will get a visit from Tashon Whitehurst (Syracuse commit). Kid's a 6' 3" LB, rivals 3 star with a 5.6 rating. He will visit over the A&M game. Wouldn't it be exciting to have a big LB like that?

    Visit from TE Sean Culkin is apparent. Should be visiting for the Kansas game (Nov. 4th). Culkin is a 6' 5" 220 lbs TE with a rivals 3 star and 5.7 rating. Is ranked as the 20th TE in the nation.

    Anything else happening on the recruiting trail?

    Whitehurst verballed to 'Cuse and yet still taking a visit? Hmmm...

    Culkin has pretty crappy offers (besides us) for such a highly rated TE.

    Josh Newberg who does the recruiting news for 247.com says that he is the most underrated player in Florida. Besides wouldn't you love to have a 6' 5" TE out there. Turn him into another Collin Franklin.

    Whitehurst may be a love child of Micheal Irving.

    Note to coaching staff:
    Throw to TEs often during beatdown of Jayhawks.

    All of those guys would be great guys to have, IMHO. Now that the Big12 is staying together, for the most part, we should see things starting to pick up again as guys make visits and close in on decisions.

    Williams looks about as close as you could come to another Hayworth Hicks in the making.

    I'm a little hesitant about getting a tall, slender linebacker from Florida, since the last one didn't work out so well. However, it would be great for Tancey McKnight to turn this kid into a beast!

    And Culkin? Unless I'm mistaken, he plays at a tiny Christian school and may be a bit overlooked. I think he plays WR for his team, too. Of course, I don't really care about the other offers, since our staff seems to do a great job of identifying talent!




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.

    Yeah, I think that a little conference stability will help recruiting. Hopefully it didn't turn too many guys off in the process.
