    Jeff Badet

    From the Estime decommits and now official, we have taken that scholarship and gone after the best available in WR Jeff Badet. Here's a good article that shows other good schools also going after him and him having us in his final 3.

    Orlando Freedom WR Jeff Badet down to Kentucky, Clemson, Iowa State - OrlandoSentinel.com

    Here's a scouting report on him:
    Recently decommitted from USF after Skip Holtz firing and now has Clemson, Kentucky and Iowa State as top schools. He also visited Wake Forest (Jan. 12). Made huge strides during his senior season for a Freedom squad that made it into the Class 8A playoffs. When it comes to stretching the field, few are better than Badet, who routinely takes a 10-yard slant and goes the distance as linebackers flail at his path. Sure hands and speed sum it up for Badet, but he's also tough and, despite size, is not afraid of going across the middle. Will play in the Central Florida All-Star Game at Lake Brantley on Dec. 13. Sentinel All-Central Florida 1st team.

    Get him locked up, i will not be happy until Rohach and Richardson both have quality game changers out wide...then i will start to complain about the QB play....

    Thanks for the link. I just looked this morning and ISU wasn't even listed.

    Re: Jeff Badet

    Interesting. I almost wonder if the real reason Estime's scholly offer was pulled was that they called Badet and got a good response from him?




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.

    Perhaps but I think it still has to do with the risk. I think Estime's a better player but it really doesn't look good for qualifying. It says something that we offered and were immediately one of Badet's favorites among some decent competition.

    Probably because of grade problems. Also probably why he was tweeting and saying he wouldn't sign on signing day.

    Well, there's "better player", and then there's "ceiling". Estime may not have been playing football long, but he's already 20. If Badet is say, just turned 16 like Dondre Daley was, that might have made a difference.

    Or, could it be that the coaching vacancy may be filled by a USF coach that was on the previous staff that had established a relationship with Badet? I could see that as a better possibility. (And I have no inside information, this is purely speculation in connecting the dots as to possibilities).

    I hope I'm wrong but I have a feeling we're a long shot to win Badet's services at WR
