    Where do we go with our last 3-4 Schollies?

    Everyone has been following the De-commits etc etc but we're sitting a week away from signing day with 3-4 schollies, what does everyone want to see and who????

    Here's my stab at it, some names you will see you will know, others you will not know....

    All the hoopla is over Justin Madison, i think he sounds like a very good player. However, rumor floating today is that the "U" offered today. If either ISU or Wake Forest has a prayer of retaining him, seems unlikely.

    Jeff Badet - WR: he's no longer interested in ISU. He's leaning between Kentucky and now has received an offer to UCLA over the weekend with a friend that was visiting. I would consider him a UCLA lean now.

    Dantwaun O'Neal - WR 6-3 192 from deland, fla. If you know Deland (S. Johnson) former high school, they run the ball a lot. he's got the ability, under the radar guy imo.

    Darlen Williston - DE, rush end with offers from ISU, Rutgers, Cinci, and Mizzou...would be a very good edge rusher.

    Casey Irish - Ath, 6-3 205, played 6 positions this season, great versatility. Would love to see this kid as another Jake Knott or possible even the hybrid - LB/S position. Big time hitter.

    Colton Plante - LB, 6-2 221, Under the radar guy that his coach calls the toughest, hard nosed players in the state of florida....not sure about you, but i want those guys.

    Davarez Bryant - DE, 6-4, 230, looks the part on the strong side. Quick, and could be a solid player - still have not offered.

    Winston Chastang - DE, 6-3 225, needs to put on some size but has speed. another hard nosed football players, i love these type of kids because they always keep working to get better!

    BJ Simpson - Ath, 6-1 185, not sure about you, but, that sounds like a great safety! Could develop into a stud as he has cover skills as a former DB.

    Jerry Haymon - S (juco) need a good cover safety in this league thats willing to stick someone....ala Kenny vacarro from Texas.....

    Malik Smith - DE, 6-2, 239, offered by Indiana, but, they're heavy at the position already. Athlete, had 80 yd td catch as a td...

    Wayne Scott - OT, 6-4, 305, offers from a few lower programs, many projecting his natural position may be DT....could be one of those guys you convert into a great DT rather then trying to recruit a great DT!

    Nate Bryant - Ath, 6-0, 240, not sure what position he's projected at right now from the staff but we have offered.

    Thens theres others like
    Bobby Leath - DT
    Trevon Young - LB
    Keith Kelsey Jr - LB
    Trevon Young - OL
    Ted Meline - WR juco
    Markeith Ambles - WR juco


    Just a few - hundreds more, hope we fill those slots with good players and one of them will develop into a force in the big 12.

    I think we get 2-3 more and then coach rewards a walk on with a scholarship

    Seemed to recall Miami playing before sparse crowds this past season (one game which had pictures of the stadium with less than half of it occupied). The opportunity to play in the Big XII and packed home games for Coach Rhoads and a rising program is a better sell than you are giving it credit for. If it were Alabama, Florida, or Oregon, then I may make a similar statement of having a slim chance.

    We got 1 from Missouri & 1 from Cincinnati before those. Players shifting happens, but just saying because the "U" showed an interest that we only had a prayer afterward is not an accurate way to think nowadays. Not saying we have surpassed Miami, but trend lines & conference affiliations would lead me to my initial point.

    Jalen Barnes, in a roundabout way. Originally decommitted for Houston, then ultimately chose Tech a week or two later.

    I heard Jalen Barnes switched to a hometown school and then to a school in the middle of nowhere...
