Default Re: 2009 Signing Day

According to rivals.com FSU had the #6 overall recruiting class, right behind Texas. They signed 21 recruits.

Two 5*s, both on defense. #1 DT Jacobbi McDaniel and Under-Armor phenom CB Greg Reid.

Ten 4*s. players DT Demonte McAllister, Army All-American game phenom WR/S Willie Downs, S Jajuan Harley, DE Brandon Jenkins, LB C.J. Mizell on defense. WR Rodney Smith, WR Willie Haulstead, RB Lonnie Pryor, RB Chris Thompson, OL Aubrey Phillips.

Notable 3*s are #1 kicker from Houston, Dustin Hopkins. Also QB Will Secord from Frisco, TX.

I'm pretty excited about our defense for the next 3 years.

I love Greg Reid. Best player in the Fla St. class IMO.

We brought in three 5* prospects. Alex Okafor, the #1 strong side DE in the country. Garrett Gilbert, the #2 QB in the nation and the Gatorade National Player of the Year. And Mason Walters, the #2 OT in the country, who has the ability to play either tackle spot and center.

We also brought in 11 4* prospects, led by DT Calvin Howell and OT Garrett Porter. Other top prospects are physical 190 lb CB Marcus Davis and 6-3 CB Eryon Barnett, 235 lb HB Chris Whaley, and the #3 ranked player in Arkansas DT Derek Johnson (our ONLY out of state commit),

We also brought in a few 3* prospects, led by a TE, Barrett Matthews, who is an elite athlete.

We finished second place on Devon Kennard (#1 DE) and Dre Kirkpatrick (#1 CB) so I applaud the staff for going after those guys hard. But in the end, second place doesn't mean anything and it hurts not to land those guys.

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.
Yeah, McGee was fun to watch, but I really believe Fran destroyed him. The guy showed in the Texas game in 07 that he can still fling the ball down the field. This year he was battling a shoulder injury and just never seemed to get in the rhythm. The way I see it, I give him about a 40% chance of making an NFL team. He's got a lot of the tools and as you said is tough as nails, but can he be coached up? I agree about Jerrod.

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.
Good stuff man. From everything I have heard and read about Matt Allen, he is the real deal. The line definitely needs the help, and I hope he can be a big key to a better performance from the OL.

Hopefully they can get together and stop somebody next year or it's going to be another long one.
I agree about the offense. Those receivers are going to be tough to handle and by the time he is done, Jeff Fuller will likely hold every single A&M receiving record. A lesser known guy I am hearing about as a possible contributor for us is Ryan Swope. He played HB in high school but will likely be moved to receiver. From what I have heard, he will probably be kind of an H-Back coming out of the backfield at times as well as playing in the slot. I cannot wait to see Christine Michael as well.

I have mixed emotions about the defense. I really liked what I saw from Eddie Brown, DT, and think we may benefit from Kellen Heard's lazy ass taking a hike. The guy has tons of talent but brings zero effort. DE will definitely be a problem but maybe, just maybe, Matt Moss, 4 start juco, will step up and hold down the weakside. I'm fine with Featherston/Lewis at MLB and if Jonathan Stewart shows some promise, LB may not be a problem. Finally, as strange as this is, I believe DB is the biggest strength on defense for the Aggies. Trent Hunter was a diamond in the rough, Jordan Pugh is a hard-hitting corner and pretty good in coverage, and I love the incoming class of DBs. Regardless, it's all speculation and all we can do is just wait-and-see.

That's my high school! I have like 3 classes with him this year, and kept on hinting at him to go to A&M haha. He should get some decent PT as a freshman.

As dorky as it might be, I'd recommend getting an autograph now. The guy looks like he just has "it" and the more scouts watch him, the more they seem to come away thinking he has the tools to be an NFL RB. Pretty cool you have classes with him. He seems like a good guy. Would that be accurate?

It'd be nice if the Texans gets an Ex-Texas Longhorns player, that dude is awesome.

Anyway, congrats on y'all win against the Tech.

LOL. I'm a Horns fan and even I can admit that McGee had a pair on him.

He did whine at times but nobody can accuse him of not giving full effort on every play.

Yea to bad he couldn't throw the ball worth a damn. Yes I could have a high accuracy percentage if I was throwing 2 yd outs all day long too. The guy had a pair yes, but not a great pro-style quarterback. Coach Fran really ruined his progression as a quarterback with all his focus on the option game. I've actually preferred Johnson ever since his redshirt year.
