So how does your team look to end up?

Looks like another stellar class for Bama.

Bama got lucky, they snatched a guy out from under VT's nose from Lynchburg VA but the guy I've seen him play...not the best by no means.


Virginia Tech closed out strong with commitments from ESPNU 150 DE Ken Ekanem and ATH Joel Caleb, but struck out on Lynchburg defensive lineman Korren Kirven, who chose Alabama.

Looks like VT came out looking good as well even without Korren, my only concern is the Running back position. I'll have to go back and look at who's who and check out the spring game to see what is going on for this year. Heisman talk for Logan Thomas for sure this year but he will need help from his RB's and Front line which took a small beating along with losing two key receivers this year. Upcoming schedule looks decent, not too weak and not too strong but should prove just right for some learning curves while putting W's across the board and building another 10 win season ahead.

On another note..I like the idea of adding a 2nd set of eyes to the replay booth... certainly should have been that way during any of the recent big games.

We are already stacked at running back, but added another potential stud in TJ Yeldon. Hope he lives up the hype.

They never are when they go somewhere else. ;)

Not the signing day he expected. WR recruit Roger Lewis facing rape charges instead of signing football scholarship | Prep Rally - Yahoo! Sports (http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/highschool-prep-rally/wr-recruit-roger-lewis-facing-rape-charges-instead-124158285.html)


A Division I football recruit who was expected to make his college choice on Wednesday's national signing day festivities was instead in jail, being held on two charges of rape.
As first reported by ThisWeek Pickerington, and quickly confirmed by a number of other Ohio media outlets, Pickerington (Ohio) Central star Roger Lewis (http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/recruiting/player-113269), who helped his team reach Ohio's Div. I state football title game in 2011, has been charged with two first-degree felony charges of rape (http://www.thisweeknews.com/content/stories/pickerington/sports/2012/01/24/pickerington-central-lewis-charged-with-two-counts-of-rape.html), both of the same female acquaintance. Like the victim, Lewis is 18 and is being charged as an adult (http://www2.nbc4i.com/news/2012/jan/31/3/pickerington-student-charged-rape-ar-916618/) after a nearly month-long investigation by Pickerington Police.
The victim has been described only as a fellow Pickerington High student. She alleges she was raped both in December 2011 and again on January 6 (http://www2.nbc4i.com/news/2012/jan/31/3/pickerington-student-charged-rape-ar-916618/).
On Tuesday night, Lewis was being held on $250,000 at Fairfield County Jail (http://www.thisweeknews.com/content/stories/pickerington/sports/2012/01/24/pickerington-central-lewis-charged-with-two-counts-of-rape.html) and was expected to be arraigned on Wednesday.

Don't want to derail the thread......but if she felt she was raped in December, why go back with him in January???

Just curious.......

I didn't want him at VT anyway to be honest just cause I've seen him in action and he's over hyped.

I trust our coaches and recruiters, and we are happy to take him off of your hands.

LOL.
The number one excuse if YOUR school does not get that certain recruit.

Considering ALL the clouds that The U has been under, they more than likely will have a top 5 class. Al Golden has done an AMAZING job creating those relationships with the south Florida coaches to get a class like this.
