(1/29) Arik Armstead is a Duck.
One of the top prospects in the country, Left Tackle Arik Armstead, is headed to Eugene, Oregon. Armstead is a 6’8, 280 pound tackle with elite athleticism for his size. Oregon lost both of their Offensive Tackles to graduation, and have no real locks to replace them.
(1/29) Devin Fuller headed to UCLA.
One of the best Quarterbacks in the country has chosen to go to UCLA. Fuller is billed at 6’0, 190, but is probably closer to 5’10.5, 175. Fuller should help UCLA score points in an evolving Pac12.
(1/26) Josh Garnett chooses Stanford over Michigan
Josh Garnett, one of the nation’s most talented and highly touted guard prospects, elected to go to Stanford. Garnett is not the typical college recruit; his number one reason for choosing Stanford was the superior medical program. Garnett has a plan in life and is sticking to it. My personal bias’ aside, I think Josh Garnett absolutely made the right decision. He’ll be able to shine blocking for Barry Sanders Jr.
(1/11) JUCO Bo Wallace commits to Ole Miss
Former Arkansas State Quarterback Bo Wallace will join his former head coach in Mississippi as a Rebel. The 6’5 monster was being courted by Texas, but ultimately couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a name for himself in the SEC.
(1/9) Jordan Jenkins adds to an already
stacked Georgia recruiting class
Georgia added five star defensive end Jordan Jenkins to their 2012 Recruiting class. Georgia already has John Theus and Keith Marshall, two of the top five prospects in the country according to Scout. Jenkins has a similar frame to teammate Jarvis Jones already, and will likely bulk up. He’s explosive and has the chance to be a dominant pass rusher at the college level and beyond.
(1/8) Jordan Westerkamp chooses Nebraska.
Westercamp is a four star prospect from Illinois, but he decided to go with Nebraska instead of an in-state team. Westerkamp is not highly touted, but he could be an immediate producer in the Nebraska offense. He’s got a nice frame and he fits in well with what Bo Pelini is doing in Nebraska.
(1/6)Landon Collins chooses Alabama
If you didn’t watch the Under Armour All American game, you missed one of the most awkward moments in sports I’ve ever seen. Landon Collins, the nation’s top safety prospect, announced in front of a camera, and next to his family, that he would be attending Alabama.
That part alone isn’t awkward.
However, when you realize that his entire family are LSU Tiger fans, it becomes awkward. To make it more awkward, all his mother could manage to work up to say was “LSU is number one. Go Tigers.”
(1/6)Huge Freeze/Channing Ward
It appears that Ole Miss made the right call when they hired Hugh Freeze to be their next head coach. Freeze was phenomenal in the way he was able to build Arkansas State, but I, along with many others, questioned his ability to seamlessly translate to the SEC.
At least in the aspect of recruiting, he answered those questions.
Freeze landed five star defensive end Channing Ward earlier today. Ward is 6’4, 260 pound defensive end with an impressive first step. Ward is a three year player and will likely leave school the second he can to go to the NFL. Regardless, he’ll be spending those years at Ole Miss, a rebuilding school that was desperate for a star.
