Thomas, Kirkland, Coley, Bryant, and Kerr for James Coley. I like our return
You forgot Edwards.
They are all close to locks IMO with the weakest being Edwards since he just got off Miami visit, with Collins going to Arky they were probably throwing money at him.

lolz, James Coley is the most over-rated recruiter ever
I tried to tell Lamp he is good but not great and he was dead set on him being the best recruiter we had
I would have ranked them like this
2- Craig - went head to head with Saban and took kids they offered and pressed for
3- Haggins - been around the longest and has pulled in 2 5 star DT's recently
4- Lawrence Dawsey
5- Mark Stoops
6- Eddie Gran - what he created in FSU's backfield was remarkable and had he stayed FSU might have added Collins
7- James Coley - all he did was sign 3 star Miami kids that Miami didn't offer
8- Darin Eliot - solid recruiter but wasn't given much responsibility ( you could argue he is a better recruiter than Coley though )
9- Rick Trickett
10- Greg Hudson
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.
That being said Im sure Coley will do better with Miami kids now that the job will be easier, you can't deny his connections down there and he isn't a terrible recruiter by any means
But there is no way anybody could argue with my list unless they don't understand FSU recruiting and who brought in who
Coley was never responsible for a big time land in his 5 years at FSU
Craig is godlike for bringing in Jameis Winston.
Casher too, and I really like Shanks
He is huge and Haggins likely shapes him into a bigger and more talented version of McCloud
Thomas is the only guy that I'm sad we didn't get. the rest you can have them especially that troll Bryant
Bryant was the one your team needed the most. Thomas is a legit 5 star LB but him going to FSU would mostly just be a PR debacle for AG.
I agree 1-3, but then I would have had
and then the rest
I actually agree with that, I was thinking I put Stoops too high as well
Although you could argue he was a better recruiter than Coley, its a toss up for those 2 imo
But there is no doubt that Craig, Fisher, Haggins, Dawsey and Gran were the crew of recruiters that did the most work on those top 5 classes
anyways I hope Keith Bryant goes to Miami. He is such an ass clown. Dear lord I feel sorry for his child.
Must be why FSU will get him now that Coley left, cause whenever Miami pressed for a kid while he was on staff FSU lost the battle
Of course you did. Kerr & Bryant commited and we flipped them. Matthew Thomas apparently wanted to be at FSU and after screwing the pooch with Kirkland you insult the kid with a meeting today in which he says thanks but no thanks. Coley you did push for it was just a little too late.
Thomas is the only stinger, IMO. We need DT's, but not drama queens.

"I Am The One Who Knocks.." - WW
Canes likely still wont admit Coley is a shit hire. But he wasnt allowed to call plays, poorly coached our TEs and then you take him and his main recruit likely still goes FSU.
I just couldn't believe the instant reaction and how pumped they were
But that is how the Canes roll lol, not even FSU had that kind of reaction for Pruitt
Granted there are always fans who just praise every hire, but FSU fans are still very unsure of Pruitt for the most part
Meanwhile the Canes are thrilled with Coley despite the fact he isn't anywhere near ready to be a major D1 OC/play caller
Jimbo knew better and I thank god he didn't allow him to call plays at FSU, people can say Jimbo is a bad play caller but considering his QB's and lack of a run game most years he was damn good and still took FSU to the ACC title game 2 out of 3 years, won every bowl game and is 5-1 against his rivals
Dude if anyone is getting a gun with one bullet handed to them its you and the Canes.
Canes last four classes:
LOLZ. Here's your next five days: Monday Alex Collins will be calling the Hogs, Wednesday morning MT and DK will be chopping it up, for next 15 minutes ESPN will discuss how badly Jimbo drank AG's milkshake.

Top 20 for sure
31 wins in three years. Numerous epic recruiting wins: Winston, Wilder, Jernigan, Goldman, MT?
AG = 13 wins in two years, resume building recruiting wins? None, all locks or three stars. Tracy Howard went U bc his dad got sick.
Again, the only people that have called it a great hire is Heather Dinich, Lamont Green and Cane fans
247 has you at 63rd. You're going to miss on basically everyone. It will be a bloodbath.
Coaches only get so many face to face meetings, why waste one on somebody you know you aren't getting ?
Spin it how you want, but Kirkland said hell no after being jerked around.You guys tried to insult him by reoffering. HAHAHAHAHA you guys would still take Coley and Bryant.
0 national titles while the Canes were shit.
Has me at 63rd ? damn, I thought I was better than that
seriously though I didn't know they were 63rd on here, ouch
