    I have no clue on Paige. UM has offered something like 17 guys in state and I'm not sure how many of them they actually want. Paige is definitely one of them, but if you guys wanted to take Maliq Carr or Devell Washington I would be fine with that.

    With Smith-Njigba and Gee on board, and a Rakim looking good, I’d expect the remaining WR spot(s) to be focused on guys like Fleming, Wilson, Henning, Rosemy, and Holden.

    Big, big fan of Rashawn Williams, who it looks like you’re trending for.

    I'm actually kind of lower on Williams. I just don't think he's that explosive. That's fine if he's the 2nd or 3rd best WR in your class. If he's your top guy, I don't think that's ideal. I'm very curious to see where we end up at that position. I don't buy any Flemming stuff, and I'm not sure who else we're really in the game for at this stage in terms of out of state guys.

    I think Penn State staff feels pretty confident on Jordan Morant even despite the Campanile hire for Michigan. I would also say we are favorites for Theo Johnson. Believe he has a 4 day PSU visit soon and then is planning another return for our spring game.

    He may still end up at Ohio State, but he loves the game and is going to play it. Those type of recruitments usually end up in the South somewhere.

    I’m sure Pelican could answer you better.

    The HellWithEnis is based on a very intricate algorithm that contains decades of key data points. I was as shocked as anyone to see Drennen’s name on his list.

    I'm assuming that Drennen would choose OSU if it comes down to it. I'm also assuming that both OSU and UM are hoping for bigger names at that position, and that OSU is more likely to succeed in that quest than UM.

    PSU could land both. Johnson is visiting UM this weekend for the second time in a month, and according to reports UM thinks it's closed the gap there with PSU has a shot there. Morant was just a name I threw in there because I don't know who else is more likely at this point.

    Northwestern’s director of recruiting seems really good at his job. Putting down top recruits via Twitter is a great idea.

    He probably shouldn't have tweeted that, even though that kid wasn't going to Northwestern anyway.

    He was also probably right about what he actually said.

    Fleming visits campus close to every weekend. He's going to take visits in the spring and my guess would be ends it shortly after he finishes the last one.

    Yeah. He’s probably there more than that. Our 247 folks only report when he actually meets with staff, but that’s still about every weekend. I don’t think anyone that follows recruiting would be surprised if he ended up at OSU because we don’t win those recruitments very much, but our staff expects him to come to penn state.

    Any B1G schools mad after the 247 re-rank this week? Seemed like they made the right call (in both directions) on a lot of the guys UM is recruiting to me, at least.

    I thought they were fair. The only issue I had was them dropping Jack Miller 27 spots but bumping Bryce Young. Miller just beat him out for the West Coast MVP at camp and made the E11 finals.

    What's going on with Michigan State's in-state recruiting? Doesn't seem like you're in on many of the top guys, and a lot of the guys from the second tier that MSU has been so good at developing over the years seem to be trending more towards Indiana and Purdue. Is that by choice? Or is it a staff issue?

    we'd been trending down for awhile there. Had some inept fired coaches as NJ recruiters over the winter and that impacted pursuit. Also UM hiring his coaches brother didn't hurt, I assume.

    That's what I'm hoping, but even after that hire for UM it seemed like PSU fans felt pretty comfortable with their situation so I was curious if something else happened. I know he hasn't visited UM in a while and had to reschedule something for this weekend, I think.

    he just hadn't visited anywhere so that was some of it. The 2 assistants we fired from last year's group were in charge of north Jersey and south Jersey. We aren't likely to land anyone in NJ this cycle and that has alot to do with it.
