(Per Rivals Recruit Search feature) Interesting to note of the 100 commitable offers we have issued we have only one JC scholarship out, and that to an OL (Jacob Fahrenkrug). 2010 - 7. 2009 - 1. 2008 - 7. 2007 - 4. 2006 - 5. 2005 - 5. 2004 - 4.
We have offered 0 scholarships to any prep school kids. In 2010, we offered 1. 2009 - 2. 2008 - 1. 2007 - 2. 2006 - 2. 2005 - 1.
60 of 100 offers are to kids from within the state of Florida.
25 of 100 offers are to kids within 100 miles of Coral Gables, with 3 already committing to play for FSU and 2 going elsewhere (UM, OSU). For reference, Miami has offered 19 kids within the same radius. 1 committed to play for UM, and 2 others going elsewhere (FSU, OSU).
It's also interesting to see where kids we've offered have elsewhere committed. Of the 100 HS kids we've offered commitable offers to, we've nabbed 11, and the next highest is Alabama with 6. UGA, LSU, and ND with 3. UF, USC, and Auburn nabbed 2. I think this adds up to having a great hybrid philosophy of national and local recruiting efforts.
Don't know what Dent and Haggins were promised during recruiting but it does seem to make sense from a depth and playing time perspective, especially considering we landed Christian Green, Kenny Shaw, and hang onto DeJoshua Johnson.
Also should it be assumed that Bjoern Werner stays on the D-line considering both Lemonier and Smith committing to Auburn?
Does Maryland have what it takes to beat FSU. I think this is a shock but The just might. Yes, Im talking about the the same 2-8 Terrapins that almost lost James Madison in OT, yet beat Clempson and hung around with WF and NCST. sounds crazy but I think we need to look at this game as a big deal.
For some this is a win already with a lot of people looking at who we might get in the bowl game we are going to. I think some people have forgoten that FSU still need one more game to even get in. With Maryland and UF left that leaves Maryland because the UF game is like a 7% chance of us winning maybe less. So why are you so worried Des about Maryland this team sucks and thats true. But FSU sucks (well the Def at least). If most havent noticed teams have put up points on FSU all year. Every team other than WF have put up there best Offense game agenst us. Most teams are putting up an avg. of 390.2 yards a game and thats including Jax St. As for Maryland that are avg. 311.1 yards a game. If the trend is right then they will at least get that + more on FSU. Can FSU's offense out score them maybe.
Now that they have seen what EJ can do and what JF will try they will have a much better game plan that WF. There Def is not that good at all from what I can tell. Im sure FSUn will go into depth about this. Most well have a good feeling but Im not. If we stick to the same game plan as last week we could have some problems.
FSU last week got lucky with the game play because WF didnt know what they would see form FSU. They thought we would run the same game plan we have ran all year and that didnt happen. We ran a lot of Play-action and bootlegs. We ran a lot of zone reads and options. We ran a lot of short easy passes. Im not saying that will not work but we didnt set up plays like JF would have with Ponder. WF thought we were and that helped us. This week we need to see more and less of both. We need to stick with the zone reads because thats the base play. The fly motion will be nice because we have 3-6 plays out of it but we only saw 3 of them. (the pass to the motion, and ISO/Zone read, and a bootleg backside TE flats pass.) we can still see the revers/ a dud pass from Reed and prob something else I have no clue about. I would like to see some QB draws( like the ones Ponder would run off T) Also I think we need to get EJ running some Trip options with that pony formation we have with both RB going one way and Ej taking it the other or fake the FB under and EJ and TJ/jones to the other side. Keys on the numbers game will be big because Maryland will move more up closer to the line. The bubble will not work well I think but the slants and TE post could be big for us.
