Down to UGA and AU it seems. Seems like his recruitment has heated up a bit in the last couple weeks. Did UGA offer him Sunday because they have a feeling they know where Alvin K is going?
? Our mods, and many national writers have it down to AU and UT. Georgia just offered and it will be down to FSU and Georgia for his last visit. Where are you getting your info?
Also, feelings are not good for Georgia getting Kamara considering they just offered Ford following Kamara's visit to Athens.
Butch Jones. Who???
I figured he'd be the consolation prize if Auburn lost the Derrick Green sweepstakes.
Momentum is definitely rolling towards the Plains atm
I was wrong. Just forgot about UT on this one tbh. Didn't mean to slight you guys at all. Hopefully we can convince him to stay in state though.
No offense taken, I was just a little rattled considering we were just told today that we had a good chance. These situations are so fluid you just never know.
I think you guys probably have the 70-30 shot at this point. Pretty incredible how much his recruitment has picked up.
I agree it always just takes one big dog to offer then others look a lot harder at him and offers will start rolling in.
FSU is trying to get him in for a visit, not sure why exactly for I have no idea how he fits into our class
Maybe Trickett is resorting to taking RB's and plans to bulk them up for his OL
Bottom line is I wouldn't worry about FSU here, my guess is Pruitt likes him at safety
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.
Thanks for the tidbit. He's definitely an athletic player if he can be recruited as a running back or as a secondary player.
You are right but Ill just add its more about these coaches knowing each other
When they see a school offer a kid late, they can usually know or can tell which coach did
And usually they will know that coach and his tendencies and once they watch the film themselves they can see why their friend or former employee was high on him so they follow suit
Its more than just seeing a " Bama " or somebody offered, so we should too
Just felt like adding this you are correct though
Kamara looks to be Bama bound
Im pretty sure Rudy grew up an Auburn fan. He's from my hometown. Most around here feel he will go with Auburn but he hasn't really said that I know of. If I hear anything, I will bump this thread. The classes at New Hope only have about 75-100 so if any rumors get started, the whole town knows. One buddy said that he heard Malzahn will be in town tomorrow. I think his dad heard it from one of the coaches at the school.
Auburn fans if you land Ford are you done at RB or will you continue to go after Folston? Has your staff used in home with Folston yet? If not any idea when they plan on using it?
Been a lot smoke regarding Folston.. Also heard Ty Isaac was a possible flip to ND, which may shake some things up. I believe AU plans on taking 2 more RBs, IIRC, could be wrong.

"Get in where you fit in." Life is, Too Short TL;DR
I believe Folston is our top target.
Been a lot of smoke about Isaac, but don't see that happening. Still hearing Folston ends up Irish, but you never know.
almost... going to be a battle of in-home visits now.
Is everyone recruiting him as a RB?
I haven't seen his DB film. Pretty solid?
AU is recruiting Ford at RB
Not sure, but I know Saban liked him there. RB's have a good track record of turning in to great DB's. If you guys could get Folson (sp?) to sign and maybe one more, then you might be able to experiment with Ford.
Would make sense with going after Elder so hard. I just don't see us taking three RBs when we need help elsewhere, but it's been mentioned as a possibility.
If it weren't those three backs, I would only take two.
Yep, wouldn't surprise me to see him flip to CB if the need arises though. Really like this kid at RB/slot receiver type like we used Riddick last year.
FSU likes him at safety
