    Ah, Judge,...….did you intentionally use the phrase: "The TIDE would turn" sir?

    Well played if so sir.

    It's funny how we see posts from biddies here that unmire

    A journalistic genius. Since this loser has retired from reality, isn't it about time he retire from journalism?

    Ryan Snyder has just as much info as Fitz. They even talk to each other, I just don't think Ryan gives out as much free info as Fitz so if you don't pay for it you wouldn't know that.

    on the 247 only ranking he is the 703 rated player

    not sure Ive ever seen that big of a difference for a recruit

    I noticed that too, sort of odd. Regardless, his junior year Hudl highlights are pretty damn impressive (as are Roberson's).

    Well....I have seen differences in ratings of players like this every year.... I guess from time to time one service just uses a different Ouija Board.

    How can anyone say with a straight face say that he's the #708 ranked recruit when he has Offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Miami, LSU, and Penn State ....

    Because they are the 708th ranked room in a room full of idiots. Seriously, who gives a shit. The young man has talent, coachability and smarts.... I cannot say that for the fat ping pong players turned football recruiting gurus overnight one day. You never know what you get from a self proclaimed Guru until you have seen him use his Golden Parachute. After watching this young man on film. I want him in Blue and White and I don't care if 247 has him unranked.

    Why do people pull their hair out about a prospect’s rating - over and over? Who gives a shit? Check the offer sheet like Judge and many of us have advised - over and over.

    I trust the evaluations of the PSU coaching staff and I think this has been the proven standard.....as we have seen lightly regarded individuals rocket to 5 star status, talent that CJF has detected with early offers.
    However, I am somewhat skeptical of offer sheets as well. Are they commit able?Who verifies that a recruit has received offers from those schools? Just curious.

    A series of electronic Ouija boards in a server in Russia made of defective parts made in China that were ordered through a fake Ebay account and even though the buyers checked not thru Pay Pal.... the order went through PayPal so the Phuckers at EBay and Paypal screwed the buyers of the Ouija boards so they can't get their money back. Those Ouija boards are the ones that verify the offers.

    Agreed...no one is.

    At least it's somewhat recruiting related as opposed to the other things discussed on this thread...

    Personally I've always been good with Pickel. He predicted Andre White to elsewhere and Lance Dixon to PSU many months before anyone said the same about either prospect. David Jones, on the other hand...

    Greg Pickel does not have insider information. So you have to take his predictions with a grain of salt. His predictions are just based off his opinion, which are sometimes baseless. And that's fine, because his opinions are Free.

    The recruitniks here value opinions of Sean Fitz, Steve Whiltfong, etc because it's their job to have inside sources and find out where a recruit may possible go. And that's why we have to pay $$ for their opinions.

    But to use Andre White and Lance Dixon as examples is more of a virtue of luck rather than he knew insider information. I doubt Pickel (who lives in PA) predicted Lance Dixon to PSU before Allen Trieu who covers the midwest, has insider sources close to Dixon, and was following Lance Dixon's recruitment closely for 247sports did. He was covering Lance Dixon closer than anyone.

    Reminds me of how Micah Parsons used to line up at cornerback or wide receiver at these events and, at 6’3” and 230 pounds, would torch the poor soul lined up across from him.
