Since A & M has a very strong 2013 class lined up, it seems they should only offer the truely impact players for their final few spots. What are our chances with some of the top guys like RSJ, Manning, Mitchell, Savaiinaea, and some of the Jucos? Those are the type of players we need to compete and win big in the SEC. Hopefully, the coaches can raise the level of recruiting another notch and won't have to take as many 3* players in the 2014 group.
Read the last few editions of The Pulse and all of the updates on Manning. Should give a clear indication of what you are looking for.
Just for measure:
RSJ 65% (dependent on our performance @ 11am Saturday
Manning 33.3' %
Savage Currently 70 % (will change following Stanford Official)
Z. Smith 90% JUCO
Prevot or Larue flip 60%
Just figures I expect.
Take stars with a grain of salt... Several 3*'s become NFL players and many 5*'s fizzle out. Not an exact science.
For example Manziel was a 3* and there are a million more examples.
I would have Manning around 45% and move the Prevot/Larue to around 15%.
Quiv, Parker, Golden, (Griffin/RSJ), and Ellis are players that I am almost certain will be immediate impact players from the get-go. They'll be starting day-one types. (Savage+RSJ+Mitchell+Manning+Flowers+Alexander if we get any of them)
Then Wilson, CE-L, Huggins, Walker, Zimmerman, Chevis, Garner, Williams, and Washington are guys that I think will earn their way into the two deep first year, but some might redshirt to get use to the game.
Arnold, Gustafson, Aguilar, Davis, Wade, Claiborne, White, (all our QB's), and Tabuyo I think all have strong futures in the Two-deep, but will likely redshirt their first year in order to develop. This could change depending on need.
Points, Sezar, Wiggins, Adeboyejo I think are going to depend on how they're used. Points seems like a Nealy 2.0 type, which I'm fine with. Sezar could become a beast of a KR. Wiggins and Adeboyejo could come out shooting, but I'm not 100% that will happen their fish years.
“Honestly [tu's offer] doesn’t really matter though because I won’t go there. I won’t even visit." “I want to play big time ball in the SEC"
Alot of these guys will see immediate time in special teams.. You guys dont realize it, but alot of the extra speed weve been recruiting are guys that will replace our current special teams guys day 1.
I disagree on tabuyo, he's a stud who dropped cuz of an injury last yr, will play, otherwise I agree

Your logic is boggling my mind
Good point. Plus, a 3* that fits your system will be better for your team than a 4* that doesn't fit your system. Also each recruiting service rates players differently, so someone might be a 3* by one service and have a 4* rating by another. That being said, I would still prefer to get more of the very top players because as a group/class they should out produce the lower rated players given the same coaching and system.
I like our chances of getting those players based on your percentages!
RSJ - despite the score of the game, move it up to 70%. LSU QB looked horrible - 38% completions for 97 yards. Johnny Football 52% for 276 yards against one of the best D in football. Not to mention Manziel will be a Heisman canidate in each of the next 3 years. Who would he rather have throwing him the ball? Easy choice. LSU runs a conservative, predictable, boring, run-based offense (even the TV announcers had similar comments). A & M has a wide open, high scoring, passing offense. Which is a better fit for a super star WR? Easy choice again.
