Don't know why Muschamp isn't on a 6-4 257 LB junior whose coach says is better than Demarcus Walker, but that's be a pretty sweet pull for the Noles.
Sandalwood will have been quite good to them these past two cycles.

If not today, soon.
So McClain is pretty well thought of? I was figuring he was average, that's nice.
Pettway is a good pickup because he is coming in as a role player for a specific role and he was our staffs absolute first choice for it. So not much flash but a lot of substance there.
McClain. 6-foot-4 and 257 pounds, picked up his fifth offer from Auburn Monday. He also has offers from Alabama, Florida State, North Carolina and West Virginia.
Geis believes McClain has a bigger upside than Walker, a 4-star defensive end who enrolled at Florida State in January.
“He’s probably one of the top ten basketball players in north Florida. He’s just a great athlete,” Geis said. “He’s going to be a 270 or 275 pound defensive end for us this year. DeMarcus was just so powerful. That was his game. I don’t think you’d call him a great athlete.
“But Blake has a chance to be an unbelievable athlete. He may project as the best player we’ve had in a while. He’s very tall, very lean. He has a big, big upside. He’s a really good kid too.”
A 5-star linebacker and a talented defensive end plan to visit Auburn.
I've been F5ing my twitter...
McClain is the basketball player?
Nvm: just got answered above. Nice get.

Maybe I am wrong but Thornton just needs to chill hell out and wait 2-3 months. He has been jacked about committing to three teams so far. He seems to actually mean it with UF but good grief, sit a few weeks out and commit in June lol
Makes sense, thanks. Demarcus would have been a fool to go to Bama as a Jack but as a LE in our system he should be really good. Sounds like McClain actually could be a jack.
Daub looks like Rey Mauluga out there. Fwiw from some recruiting reports it seems we are showing kids some definite movement towards a 3-4 base defense. I bet we are 50/50 by 2014.

Yeah figured as much, seems to only be a matter of time.
Yeah, he's a little caught up in the process. He'll commit soon - we are his childhood favorite - but he's one I'd keep an eye on the whole way.
Doesn't mean I won't go nuts when he commits, though. Thornton and Miller is a helluva start at DE/LB.
FWIW, a UF scout mod said Travonte Valentine's grades are horrible. Could be sour grapes, but I thought I'd pass it along regardless.
We heard the same which we thought might be sour grapes haha. Yeah Justin Thornton has elite potential. Needs to redshirt but will be a terror after that!
First Vigor game I go to this year I will drop off the briefcase to Thornton
Totally agree, fsufsu
Annnddd looks like J.C. Jackson did the same thing...named UF his leader despite being committed to FSU.
I can do with or without JCJ. Not a difference maker.
Are you trolling me because he's about to decommit or are you serious?
Because his 2012 season highlights are nasty.
2014 WR/DB J.C. Jackson 2012 season highlights
I like Jackson, more as a WR though and he is dead set on playing DB it seems
I hope FSU takes Vickers for the Pryor role and just makes Pettway a true RB
Those 3 backs would be a nice haul
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
I obviously only got to watch SO. year film since he was hurt last year, but he was a really natural runner. Pretty telling to that he got an offer from Saban on the spot when he camped at Alabama.
Have there been post-injury reports on his health?
I think he is fine in terms of his future, he is a top 200 talent though imo
He is you standard run of the mill south florida athlete and you can never count those kids out iyam
Hadnt seen that video but I still look at him as one of those mid-four star types FSU and UF get in droves. Id rather keep him but replacing him isn't some "Oh crap can we?!" kinda experience. Congrats if you get him.
FSU only offered Yearby to get Cook
Im liking this Tally corner Randolph, he looks pretty damn good
The other safety from Godby looks good too, not Singleton but whatever the other kids name is
Forgot what it is
