    Florida Schools Staying Home

    Miami #5, Florida #7 and Florida State #8 are all doing well so far in the 2020
    recruiting cycle and they are doing it by recruiting in-state players. Miami's class
    includes 13 of 15 commits from Florida. Florida State's not far behind with 11 of
    12 from the Sunshine State and Florida follows up with 7 of 12. That's 31 of 39
    recruits from the home state.

    Clemson Keeps It In the Family

    The Tigers football team is already the home for Dabo Swinney's sons, Drew and
    Will, and defensive coordinator Brent Venables' sons Jake and Tyler. Also, Kirk
    Herbstreit's (ESPN) twin sons Jake and Tye will join the team this fall. Dabo and
    Kirk's sons are invited walk-on players while Venables' sons are both on scholarship.

    Wonder why Herbstreit's boys didn't walk on at Ohio State? Guess they weren't
    invited.

    If your Mother or father work at the school, I thought you didn't pay tuition anyway

    You may be correct...I honestly don't know.

    If not, I'm sure Dabo can afford sending his sons. So can Herbie.

    Georgia - Five star running back target Kendall Milton announced he and his family
    will take an official visit to Athens on June 14th. Milton is rated the No. 21 overall
    prospect in the country by 247Sports. The California native has narrowed his schools
    down to Georgia, Alabama, LSU and Ohio State.

    Georgia's second team TE Luke Ford who entered the transfer portal and is transferring
    to Illinois will have to sit out next season. He was ruled ineligible this week for the
    coming season. Dumbass!

    Did you know that four and five-star recruits make up only about 10 percent of all
    football recruits nationally, yet they are 10 times more likely than other D1 recruits
    to be drafted in the first round of the NFL draft. Obviously, there are exceptions like
    in this years draft. Duke QB Daniel Jones wasn't even rated. Kentucky All-American
    LB Josh Allen was a two-star coming out of high school and Alabama RB Josh Jacobs
    was given a 3-star rating. All three were taken in this year's first round.

    Fall camp starts at schools across the country in six weeks or so and there are
    several quarterbacks still in the transfer portal. Here are six with the team they
    are leaving.

    Kasim Hill (Maryland), Hill has been in the portal since February and has knee
    issues.

    Malik Willis, (Auburn) Went through spring practice then entered the portal in
    May. Good kid and could help some lessor team.

    Brandon Peters (Michigan) He graduated from Michigan in the spring. Little to
    no playing time under Jimmy.

    Alex Malzone, (Miami, Ohio) Coming out of high school he was ranked the No. 12
    quarterback in his class.

    Octavious Battle (South Florida) Went through spring practice and was listed No. 3.

    Manny Miles (North Carolina) Miles has been in the portal all spring and his father
    Les has not offered.

    West Virginia has a whopping 7 players in the transfer portal including 3 safeties.
    Not great news for new coach Neal Brown or the depth chart.

    Willis visited Liberty last weekend. He has also talked with Troy a few times. Not sure either will extend an offer or if he will accept if they do.

    Louisville has really heated up on the recruiting trail this month with 14 players
    pledging in June. Eleven came in last week ranking the class at No. 20 nationally.
    Six of the commits are from Georgia where a heavy emphasis has been placed
    on the Peach state. No program in America is hotter than the Cardinals on the
    recruiting trail.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Five of California's top 10 recruits have made pledges and only one comes from
    instate. No. 1 Clemson, No. 3 LSU, No. 7 USC and No. 10 Oregon. The rest are
    undecided.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Ole Miss has landed a commitment from 4 star safety Eric Reed who choose the
    Rebs over LSU, Notre Dame and Virginia. There's a expectations that Reed can step in
    and play right away. Good pick up for Ole Miss especially sense Reed is from Louisiana.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Notre Dame has always had national appeal and the Irish are proving it so far with
    their recruiting class. Their 13 recruits are from Pa, NJ, Va, Az, Il, Ha, Mo, Co, Ky,
    Ct, Wash DC and Germany. None yet from Indiana.

    Willis would be a good fit at Liberty, especially in a Hugh Freeze offense.
    Malzahn and Freeze are real good friends and I know Malzahn gave Willis
    a good recommendation.

    5. Ohio State
    6. Notre Dame
    7. Miami
    8. Florida
    9. South Carolina

    + Surprises
    #10 North Carolina
    #20 Louisville
    #29 Kansas
    #42 North Texas
    #62 South Alabama

    *Hell of a start for Brown and Miles.
    *South Alabama at 62...unbelievable.

    - Surprises
    #34 Texas (pitiful for the talent in Texas)
    #39 Stanford (tough entrance standards but should be higher)
    #44 Southern Cal (pitiful for the talent in California)
    #78 Nebraska (not good for the second year coach)
    #81 Central Florida (doesn't matter...they'll claim any rank they want)
    #82 Washington State (the Pirate has a reputation of winning with less)
    #87 UCLA (unbelievable for California's talent)
    #88 Virginia Tech (don't understand this one)
    #93 Illinois (maybe not a surprise with Lovie as coach)
    #94 Houston (new coach never was much of a recruiter)
    #97 Utah (big surprise)
    #107 Boise State (I'm not getting something here)

    *Some of these teams need to pick it up and fast!

    Louisville didn't get Brohm, but Satterfield can coach, and apparently he's getting things done on the recruiting trail. Who are the top recruiters on his staff?

    And Kansas at 29 -- wow!

    I read that the four recent de-commits from Penn State - just the four of them -- would constitute a recruiting class that would be ranked higher than Nebraska's or Illinois's.

    Yeah mws, Penn State lost one 5star and three 4stars. The dead period started today in recruiting so there
    probably won't be very much movement the next four weeks. Coaches can talk with recruits but no face to
    face or have them visit the campus.

    Ole Miss - Since June 1, the Rebels have received 16 commitments for the Class of 2020.
    To put that into prospective, no other SEC team has earned more than 9 commitments over
    that time. Few, if any, teams in college football have been more productive on the recruit-
    ing trail over the last five weeks than Ole Miss. The Rebs are tied with Louisville, Minnesota
    and Kansas for the most commitments received by Power 5 programs. Ole Miss has spread
    its targets across all positions on the field this recruiting cycle. Of the 21 commitments, 10
    are expected to be offensive players and 11 are headed for the defense. This includes at
    least one player at every position except center. With most of the gaps addressed, coaches
    can use their four remaining spots to go after top talent. So far, the class is made up of four
    4-stars and 18 3-star players.

    Those Herbstreit kids are 5'-11" 160. They will never play a down at Clemson.

    If Willis gets a waiver to play this year he will have to beat out Stephen Calvert who passed for over 3000 yards
    and 21 tds last year. Because the NCAA is clamping down on giving waivers, he will probably have to sit out this
    season. Good pick up for Liberty either way.
