VT, Oregon, Oklahoma never made sense to me.

I really thought he was going to MSU the minute he de-committed from ND to be honest.

Detroit has been on a run of producing high quality DB's. These guys aren't 5'7" like Boubacar Cissoko or 160 pounds like Dior Mathis and Terry Richardson either. Been a really nice run of DB's from the city that are legit 5'10+, 175+ with speed.
Rumor is he came very close to choosing VT a little bit back, and may have even been a silent there.

What a shame about Young.  Just can't even believe what compelled this kid to do this.

PSU stands at 21 commits now and a big official visit weekend this weekend.  Final 5 targets for the final 4 spots are:  Parsons, Oweh, T. Smith, Enis and Walker.

New Husker Staff Extends Nearly 20 New Offers in First Two Days

The coaches seem to have a very detailed plan of exactly who they want to target, extend scholarship offers to and visit in-home. The positions that they are going after also suggests that they have a good understanding of the current roster's limitations.

4* CB Braden Lenzy decommits from Oregon after Taggert left.  Early on he was a favorite to commit MSU, then backed away after 3-9.

I doubt MSU has any room to pursue him again now.  Honestly it was probably a reach to take a third CB last week in Gervin.  But that was a case where you kind of had to.

18 months ago it seemed like probably a two man CB class with Gervin and Lenzy.

And I have to think Parsons was an immediate phone call too.

ya MSU had to take Gervin. High quality player, solid 4* Top 250 type with major upside, from Detroit, from Cass Tech. Gotta keep the pipeline into the city flowing.
Lenzy is the third 4* commit that Oregon has last in the last day because of the Willie Taggart to FSU move. They also lost 4* CB Isaiah Bolden and 4* ATH Tre'Shaun Harrison.
Michigan was in on a lot of Oregon commits/leans too and finished either 2nd or 3rd before they committed to Oregon. Might be able to get back in there and snatch one or two. I know Tre'Shaun Harrison was a guy that Michigan loved and he nearly committed to Michigan after his visit. Took his time though and the visit wore off and he wound up staying closer to home and committing to Oregon. Might be time to jump back into that race.

I've heard nothing concrete, don't know any details- but there is A LOT of smoke about that kid and off-field stuff. I've heard that both Ohio State and Michigan have virtually stopped recruiting him.

Yessir, there's a ton being said about that.  Supposedly LJ Sr still wanted to go after him and Urban flat out told him no.  
Frankly, I hope he goes to OU and I mean that.  PSU would do great to close the class with Tyreke Smith, Jayson Oweh, Rasheed Walker and Solomon Enis.  Parson's is a head case.

Not inconsequential to all of this is that Moorehead did come out and say he nor Huff will actively pursue current PSU recruits.  Huff's a pretty legit recruiter so that's a big deal.  

PSU's big official weekend is this coming weekend (only a few current commits aren't coming who have already officialled earlier in the season like Isaiah Humphries).   Parsons, Smith and Walker are all confirmed as uncommitted officials.

Good pick up,  makes up for not likely getting Cook out of Texas.

OSU likely to lose a few of their big hits, like Cox and Jones.  Ha, while OSU was busy battling the Badgers, Bama was busy recruiting their players.   Love the system.

Iowa out-recruits 'Bama

Daviyon Nixon keeps his commit to Iowa after 'Bama offered out-of-the-blue.

This is a really enthusiastic personable guy:

sounds like Dan Mullen and Jimbo Fisher have been kicking the tires on Justin Fields, 5* and #1 QB in the composite rankings. Fields is from Georgia and was originally committed to Penn State, but he de-committed then flipped to his home town school Georgia. I don't think anything comes of the A&M stuff, he didn't pick FSU when Jimbo was there, don't see him having any real interest in A&M.

The Florida smoke...could be interesting. I believe I've read before that Fields grew up a Florida fan. Fields fits Mullen's offense like a glove. Florida needs a QB desperately. Georgia has one who will be starting there for at least the next 2 years, maybe even 3 as Fromm really isn't a big-time NFL prospect like Stafford was where you knew he'd be 3 and out.
