We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

The Ohio state scandal totally drug me into this. It immediately became the most inportant thing in the world that we rebound
Not really. I only followed him while he was committed to Michigan and then after that I forgot about him.
QB Brodie Croyle- 2001- ESPN/TiderInsider
"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
Yh he's No.4 at the depth chart. we're strong at RB so I wish the staff moved him to safety. Maybe next yr
When we got Brock Berlin back in the day was one of the more exciting times in gator recruiting. that class on paper was nuts. I never even gave a crap about recruiting until that happened. But I'd have to say when Chris Leak signed was the deal breaker and I've been really into following ever since that. Chris' high school stats were mind blowingly good and hearing him talk about how he didn't care about having a gf or friends or a life until he won a national title got us all excited.
That's when Mack Brown put the Big 12 on notice. That was his first big coup.

Booker glad he never lived up to the hype...Ron Powlus then Dan Kendra them PA QB's got me hooked.. Scott Bentley was most I've ever paid attention to a a freaking kicker's recruitment..
it was 4 guys - tyrone jones, everick rawls, jermaine anderson and ervis hill
tebow was the one that really got me into following recruiting. bastard.
i read/joined a lot of these sites long before i got into recruiting, though. i would read about new commits sometimes, but never really followed who we were recruiting and what was going on, etc. just mostly wanted the current team stuff.
I don't remember there being any particular recruit.
In terms of following football online, that started with the Buffalo Bills. However, that gets way too depressing every year, so I followed PSU more and more. To be honest, I would have followed PSU more initially if I had found a good, free message board.
Tyrone Wheatley and then Justin Fargas.
Started paying more and more attention when the NCAA dynasty mode came out. Opened my eyes that much more to the world of recruiting.
I remember following Xavier Lee's and Tray Blackmon's recruitments, then really getting into recruiting.
Huddles are for rookies.
Clowney. Litterally sprinted home after a morning class to watch him commit. I heard of many other professors who actually stopped class so they could watch him announce. What a circus.
I doubt any one post has ever received more upvotes than the one on TBS announcing Clowney.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
it's funny reading this and seeing how young most of you are...or how old i am. most of you have only known internet recruiting w/ so many sources of information and such easy access. it just wasn't always like that. i was thinking about the 1st time the internet really had an impact on me as a recruiting dork. the 2002 class w/ vy, blalock, studdard, rod wright - 8 nfl players from that class, and a ridiculous amount of talent that flamed out - edorian mccullough, robert timmons, garnet smith, michael williams, marquise johnson - just sick athletes that didn't have it above the shoulders. i was coaching a camp near cocoa beach, fl and they only had one community computer in the dorms. laptops weren't exactly ubiquitous like they are now - i had a desktop at the time. no smart phones w/ text updates. i was checking the site at least daily, because texas was closing strong and picked up several commits late (this was december). i think justin blalock committed during that time and i remember checking online and being so stoked to land him, and no one else at the camp knowing who the f* i was talking about.
TP I followed before him, but he forced me into the pay game.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
Demetrius Summers at South Carolina.
-Air Traffic Controller for the greatest Air Force in the world-
I didn't following recruiting until last year, I was on ESPN's WolverineNation website and stumbled onto Michigan's recruiting page. I saw that Terry Richardson was pretty highly ranked by ESPN so I started to want to learn more about him, and the other recruits as well.

David Paine...thought he would be the best defensive player ever. Never even made it to Bama.
