2009 Signing Day
 
with RB Christine Michael (West Brook-Beaumont) leading the way, it looks like a really good class for the Aggies...maybe top 10.

Baylor's class is a thirty position Jump from last years group. So on the one hand, you took twenty something guys after the my way or the highway thingy with Sherman. Of course the Ags got better with their depth. But so did Baylor.

Tech got Ward to switrch over from OU, and that makes this the best class Leach has ever brought in to Lubbock.

Texas finishes top five again.

I was able to see Dre Kirkpatrick choose between Alabama and Texas (chose Bama) on TV.

The kid really took advantage of his moment. When he grabbed the UT hat the air went out of the room. He may have dragged it out a little bit too long but I thought it was easily the most exciting announcement of the day.

Assuming this list directly translates into on-field (which we all know it does not) - OSU is going to have one hell of a defense!

Two of my homies signed! Montreyle McCormick (CB) to UTEP and Chris Omigie (WR) to Kansas. Both go to Martin High School in Arlington.

Alabama is back at the top.

Ags got a great class, but once again sucking hind tit to Texas and OU. 8 or 9 wins for TAMU next season this optimist says.

Hopefully Sherman can coach them up as rankings are not everything.

A&M finally found their stud RB with Christine Michael.

He should pair up nicely with Cyrus Gray. What a nice young duo.

8 wins may be pushing it with that defense, but with Johnson at the helm, a bowl appearance looks very likely.

Good synopsis. It will all, IMO, depend upon the play of last year's 4 star DT Rod Davis and this year's 4 star LB Jonathan Stewart. I think we will be pretty good at S and CB as I expect a lot out of Trent Hunter as well as I believe that Dustin Harris and/or Steven Terrell could really help us at CB and may start. Also, Coryell Judie, a juco, may compete for the starting position as well and he was a 4 star guy.

Our biggest weakness on defense is at DE right now. Matt Moss didn't really live up to expectations, but he also didn't get very many chances to play. Von Miller may move to DE and he would give us some great speed coming off the edge.

On offense, OL is the key. If we can't get some consistency and get them to play as a unit, this will be another crappy season for the Aggies. But if guys like Matt Allen and Michael Shumard can perform decently and maybe we can get something out of Patrick Lewis and/or Steven Barrera, then I believe 8 or 9 wins is possible. Our WR corps is turning into one of the best in the Big XII and Michael and Gray could also be one of the best RB tandems.

I don't follow A&M much but I'm curious who the QB will be this coming season. Any ideas? Any good?

Florida State had a good class this year.

That's 2 in a row that were really, really good. I think we are about to get back in the top 10.

Ole Miss Texan 02-05-2009 10:01 AM

Re: 2009 Signing Day
 
Ole Miss had a great day. Got a 5-star OT- Bobby Massie. Also depending on which site you go to, we got a 5 or 4-star WR (Mississippi's #1 player) WR Pat Patterson. Looking good for Ole Miss, but dang it's hard to make much ground in the SEC when they're all recruiting well.

1. Alabama
2. LSU
9. Georgia
10. Florida
12. South Carolina
15. Arkansas
17. Ole Miss
18. Auburn
22. Mississippi State
23. Tennessee

I think Jevan Snead can have a terrific senior year. I was really hoping the Texans could pick him up on the 2nd day to groom as Schaub's back up- I think he'd be a perfect fit on this team. But now I'm starting to think he goes earlier than I'm willing to take a QB with Schaub here.

Yup, another good haul for Mack. Hopefully we can get to the NC this year.

Jerrod Johnson will return as the starter. He started 9 games last season.

He's a good player. He will be a redshirt junior so the Aggies still have him for two more years.

I know a lot of Aggies had a hard-on for McGee. He was tough as nails, I'll give him that. But Johnson is a far more impressive athlete and has a better arm. If he improves his accuracy, he will be better this year than McGee ever was.

I played high school ball with Matt Allen. He was about 6-3 280 when he graduated high school and I saw him a year ago and he is loads bigger.

I would say he is about 6-4 300. Solid muscle. Very little fat on him.

I expect him to easily be A&M's best lineman next year.

Michigan finished with yet another top 10 class although those haven't really paid dividends for us lately.

The class is highlighted on defense by 5* DT William Campbell, 4* DE's Craig Roh & Anthony Lalota, and 4* CB/S Justin Turner.

The offense is obviously highlighted by the QB pickups in 4* Dual-Threat QB Tate Forcier and 4* ATH/QB Denard Robinson. Also great pickups at WR with Je'Ron Stokes and on the O-Line.

This class was very impressive concerning the team's struggles last year, but it would seem that things are turning around. Recruiting classes don't mean jack when it comes to translating it to the field, but if RichRod keeps adding players like this it would be hard to see Michigan not competing for a Big Ten title in the coming years.

Johnson is for real. He is light years ahead of McGee in turns of talent and I believe he will be better than Reggie McNeal was years ago. The offense is fine as long as the offensive line can actually start blocking this year. It's the defense that is the problem. Hopefully they can get together and stop somebody next year or it's going to be another long one.
