1/29 Recruiting Roundup

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Less than five days until Signing Day and some recruits still don’t know where they want to go. Should be a fun few weeks coming up as a result.

- Where will Nickolas Brassell go? The talented wide out is currently on a visit to Alabama and will likely choose between the Tide and Ole Miss.

- Former Oklahoma football player John Goodman says that when he was recruited by the Sooners, the recruiting game wasn’t so slimy. Of course, as he mentions, Oklahoma was coming off probation at the time.

- Oklahoma State running back Herschel Sims has an eye-popping highlight reel but beyond the gridiron is where he is really impressive.

- Boston College lost a good linebacker in Graham Stewart, who ended up committing to Florida after an in-home visit from Will Muschamp.

- Good look at players changing their minds during the recruiting process – or as some see it, schools poaching recruits.

- Impressive quarterback Brett Hundley is the foundation for UCLA’s recruiting class.

Like father, like son?

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Most movie sequels simply are not as good as the first. That’s not always the case when it comes to football players (Mark Ingram Jr. won a Heisman, something his father never came close to).

Why bring this up? Check out these high school highlights from Barry Sanders Sr. and his son Barry Sanders Jr.

Sanders Jr. is a running back in the class of 2012 and holds double-digit scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Notre Dame and, of course, Oklahoma State. Although some consider the Cowboys the favorite because his father was a star there, Sanders has openly looked at other schools. Already named a participant for next year’s Army All-American Bowl, Sanders will be someone to keep an eye out for – and not just because of his last name.
