    Re: #1 Corner for 2013

    Actually, I saw a tweet from Andrew Bone recently that there was a Top 3 of USC, UF, and Bama. Not sure what that's worth, but I didn't realize we were so much in the running for him.

    I think the odds are pretty high that he stays in Florida, most likely signing with South Florida. With his father being an assistant coach for the Bulls, it gives them a huge advantage.

    If he stays in FL it will be UF. His father also has stated he is not pushing his kid one way or the other. But they are very interested in UA. I think if UA can get him to visit we have a legit shot.

    The real question is which staff offers his father a job. Not much on packae deals but he has done well everywhere he has coached. A nice addition as our ST coach. 8)

    I just put top 6 to get the info out there. I believe this is a saban player. Read an analyst say he was a no nonsense player and a hard worker. I think once he sees a practice and Saban gets him in camp, I think he will fall in love with saban.

    That'll be a mess. The national media would destroy us if we hired his dad.

    Says on his profile that Vernon Hargreaves is his recruiting point man for Univ. of South Florida. Looks like pops already has a gig. What'd I miss?

    One more thing...that Vandy is among his favorites says a lot about the job that Franklin is doing there at Vandy. They probably still won't be a legitimate threat in the East, but at least he's changing the culture there. Gotta start somewhere

    I didn't think we had much of a shot at landing Hargreaves but when our DB coach is CNS than we always have a decent chance at any DB

    He worked with Skip Holtz at UConn in the late 90s, and then again at East Carolina and USF.

    If Coach Saban isn't willing to sign brothers and friends of high profile prospects, such as Kennan Allen, he isn't going to hire position coaches for the same reason.

    It was a joke about the package deal. Some of you take recruiting way to serious. But in regards to his father alot different from taking someone who can not contribute. From everything I have read his father would be a solid addition to any staff.

    BTW UT did do this with JUCO Cordelle Patterson and brought his coach onto the staff as well.

    As long as his father remains at South Florida (or some comparable program), I don't see us making any serious headway here. I figure, at best, we would just be another hat on the final table.

    Very talented kid, though, would love to have him.
