    Fields rated a 5 star while doing absolutely nothing at this level is kinda funny to me.

    Stars and ranking score are from recruiting profile

    Unreal how many players are listed!

    I had no idea.

    Seems like a lot of Gamecocks there too.
    Itís college football free agency. We should just call it what it is. Iím fine with it. One- any student can transfer. Two- coaches leave and can coach right away, and Three- scholarships are yearly. That said, I can absolutely see how this is NOT good for college football. Most of us love college football for how it differs from the pros and yet they seem to try and keep making more and more like them. Just my thoughts.

    My fears about those guys is that for every guy like Jalen Hurts, there are probably half dozen head cases that have been encouraged to transfer...

    Almost seems like a FERPA violation for 247 to have that information.

    FERPA only protects PII data, not enrollment or transfer data. For instance, they can't list his address, phone number, etc - or his grades. They can say when and where he was enrolled.

    I am glad to see this list. Now if us who follow recruiting stats can figure how to adjust recruiting. For example, is LSU still 2nd in the SEC West? over a four year span?

    The TE from FL St., Upshur . . we were interested originally. . wonder if he could do most of what Irv Smith did for us. . . AND if there is any interest.

    Miller is just as good as Irv, IMO. He would have been your starter this year in that role if not for his injury. I am more interested in seeing who can play the role of Hentges.

    Yep. I was high on Miller Foristall until he got hurt and I think he will be productive but the TE to watch our for is Kedrick James (suspended the first four games along w/ Deonte). Bigger than Irv but can run, block and has great hands.

    IIRC there was a ton of hype around Kedrick James in the offseason and he played pretty well in the scrimmages.

    Me too. IIRC he made some ridiculous catches in some of the scrimmages that came out. Tough to get on the field with Irv and Hale entrenched but he will get his chance now when he returns.

    Yes, this is sort of a free agency but I don't see it as such a bad thing. Of all these guys only a handful are going to make a difference at a major program. But it is good for the players because they have the option to transfer for playing time that they may not be getting currently. I just see it as a good thing for all involved. They still have to sit out a year unless they are a grad transfer.
