WINNERS


Posted Image


1. GEORGIA



2. CLEMSON



3. TEXAS



Texas landed five-star Anthony Cook  on Wednesday giving Tom Herman a recruiting victory over LSU and Ohio State. Cook is now the gem of a Longhorns' recruiting class that includes some major star power in the secondary. Texas’s 2018 haul includes six defensive backs ranked four-stars or higher.

All five prospects are from the state of Texas, and Herman can also boast the fact that he has the Lone Star State’s top six prospects in the fold. Texas (6-6) may not have had the season it wanted this year, but the momentum the Herman hire created in Austin continues.

4. PENN STATE

5. MIAMI

LOSERS

1. OHIO STATE

2. UCLA

3. TEXAS A&M

Texas A&M hoped to sign longtime commit Bobby Brown   
during the Early Signing Period. That didn’t happen. Instead, Brown decommitted on the first day of the window. The Aggies hoped to land five-star
Terrace Marshall   on Friday. That didn’t happen either. Marshall chose LSU on national television.

The Aggies did manage to sign eight of their 14 commits, including five four-star prospects. Still, things didn’t exactly break A&M’s way this week. The week wasn’t a massive disappointment in College station, but it was certainly miles from pleasing.

that's a decent way of putting it.  we'll see how this goes come signing day in 2019.  but for all the bluster and chatter about A&M making huge strides and opening eyes and all this stuff I'm fed from time to time from the "inside sources" nothing really came of it.  and i do not call signing a JUCO TE that looks built like a basketball player a recruiting win.

if it helps we should be negative recruiting every single school after any guy we want to get.  as far as i'm concerned we shouldn't be worried about being mr nice guy or anything like that.  if we're going to commit, then let's commit and get this done including anything ELSE that might matter to a recruit.

If you are going to be on the Losers list, isn't the bottom better than being #1?

Well the coaching change along with not knowing who our defensive staff will be has put us behind the 8 ball this time. Next year, not so much.
Who Dares Wins.

I think by the end of the recruiting season and after signing day we will be in the "Winners" category.

Jimbo just has to show he can win.  If he does that the rest will follow.
