TCU big winners in realignment recruiting derby

Posted by Bryan Fischer

It's official, TCU has traded in San Diego for Storrs for Stillwater. No more Laramie or Louisville when they've got Lubbock.

Spurning the chance to play in the Big East before they ever became an actual member of the conference, the Horned Frogs officially accepted an invitation to the Big 12 today. With a ceremony held at the school today, the program officially joins their fifth conference since leaving the old SWC but become a part of the one they've been looking to join ever since it was formed.

As one of the true success stories in college football, TCU has gone from an after thought in the 1990's to a perennial top 25 team and Rose Bowl champion under head coach Gary Patterson. Already selling recruits on his coaching ability and a move to a BCS automatic qualifying conference (with the Big East), the staff can now tell players they can stay closer to home and play traditional powers like Texas and Oklahoma. (And beat them, as the Horned Frogs did in Norman in 2005.)

The 2012 recruiting class Patterson and company have assembled so far has the makings of the best ever in their time in Fort Worth. Defensive end Edward Pope held offers from LSU and Texas A&M among others but was an early commit to the Horned Frogs. McPherson (Kan.) quarterback Tyler Matthews was an Elite 11 and 'The Opening' selection and will be headed south to play college football. Tight end Griffin Gilbert is the younger brother of former Texas signal-caller Garrett Gilbert and one of the top tight ends in the southwest. Running back LaDarius Anthony was drawing SEC interest and held an offer from Tennessee.

With the move to the Big 12, recruiting at TCU should continue to improve and being the only BCS conference school in the talent rich Dallas-Fort-Worth metroplex is a huge advantage no other program in the country can claim. It could also hurt programs that look to Texas for much of their roster, such as future conference foes Missouri or Oklahoma State. Either way you look at it though, Patterson and the Horned Frogs are the big winners in the realignment derby.

10/6 Recruiting Roundup

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Number one recruit Dorial Green-Beckham could be at Arkansas' game against Auburn this week.

Tennessee linebacker commit Justin King had to switch to quarterback to help his high school team out.

Shane Beamer is one of Virginia Tech's best recruiters and not just Frank Beamer's son.

Al Golden is satisfied with Miami's recruiting efforts despite losing two recruits.

Notre Dame recruiting by the numbers.

An Ohio State recruiting notebook.

Michigan State is using the bye week to send out staff members to go see recruits.

For Tennessee and Georgia, recruiting in the Peach state can sometimes trump the game with the school in Athens.

With Texas A&M's move to the SEC, the increased exposure in the state could help recruiting.

Recruiting & Realignment: How does it shake out?


Posted by Bryan Fischer

Peering into the crystal ball is something recruitniks do all the time. Which kid goes where? Is this recruit leaning toward school X or school Y? He talked about early playing time but he also wants to play with his friend in the Big Ten.

There are so many data points but it is still an inexact science. It's hard, but someone has to do it.

With all of the conference realignment news still swirling around college football, it's time once again to look into the future (The future? Yes, the future) and see - at least for the short term - what the landscape might look like. CBSSports.com has gathered up all of our experts on both the football side and the basketball side to project what all six of the current BCS automatic qualifying conferences will look like in 2014.

RapidReports: Up to the minute realignment updates
Eye on College Football: Conference Realignment Central

From the looks of it, no conference is going kaput. There is some shrinking and some bloating but all-in-all, it's just a few alteration from what the landscape will look like in 2012. Here are our projections for further conference realignment once the current wheeling and dealings are complete:

  • Big Ten -- remains at 12 teams
  • Pac-12 -- remains at 12 teams
  • SEC -- Adds Texas A&M and Virginia Tech
  • Big 12 -- Adds BYU to replace Texas A&M, but only in football
  • ACC -- Adds Connecticut, Syracuse and Pittsburgh. Loses Virginia Tech to the SEC
  • Big East -- loses Connecticut, Syracuse and Pittsburgh. Adds TCU, Houston and UCF; Navy and Air Force as football schools.

So we’ve got six conferences ranging in size from 12 to 16 programs. Which is strongest on the recruiting trail? Which is the deepest? Most top-heavy? Let’s take a look in alphabetical order.




Current picture: Four top 25 teams, 2-3 coaches on the hot seat.

#4 Florida State
#6 Virginia
#7 Miami
#17 Clemson

Future outlook: Jimbo Fisher appears to have the Seminoles back and recruiting like they were in the 1990's. Not only is Florida State attracting top talent, they're closing well and look to be a perennial contender with top five class after top five class. Clemson has recruited very well under Dabo Swinney but that hasn't translated into the bowl games the Tigers want to be playing in - which is one reason 2011 is make or break for him. One figures that Miami will get hit with serious NCAA sanctions that will hamper their recruiting abilities going forward. At the same time, the Hurricanes getting fewer players out of their own backyard could allow other schools in the conference to come in and grab better players - which could be a nice boost for schools such as Virginia or Maryland. The additions of UConn, Pitt and Syracuse don't do too much but do provide increased access to both states for the northern end of the conference.




Current picture: Three top 25 teams, one coach on the hot seat.

#2 Texas
#16 Oklahoma
#19 Missouri

Future outlook: The conference everybody is talking about will continue to be the conference everybody will be talking about. Texas and Oklahoma will still be Texas and Oklahoma as long as Mack Brown and Bob Stoops are on the sidelines for the Red River Rivalry every year. The Big 12 staying together means that schools such as Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Missouri and others will continue to have access to a good number of Texas high school players - key in any success any of them have had over the years. Texas will still grab the best players in the state, that much won't change no matter what happens. There could be increased competition however, with Texas A&M being able to play the 'We're in the SEC' card. That probably hurts Oklahoma and Oklahoma State more than anyone. BYU will enjoy reaching into the Southwest even more than they currently do.




Current picture: Two top 25 teams, one coach on the hot seat.

#18 Cincinnati
#24 Rutgers

Future outlook: The realignment shakeup is all about the survival of the fittest but the Big East is, without a doubt, the least fit. They have had schools make waves in the national picture before but they've done so largely by coaching up players, not grabbing five-star recruits. Cincinnati has done a good job in the Midwest and should be helped out by nearby powerhouse Ohio State being down slightly. Rutgers is on shaky ground if Greg Schiano is let go but, if he sticks around, they should be a program that is helped by the trickle affect of Miami being down since they recruit Florida well. Not much is lost with the three schools going to the ACC, a good number of programs will still continue to recruit in states such as Pennsylvania and New York for players. TCU and West Virginia will probably be the top dogs in the rankings with both having strong ties to Texas and Dana Holgorsen's reputation proceeding him. UCF is a hidden gem that adds the most since Orlando has really come along in terms of number of BCS players the area produces.





Current picture: Five top 25 teams, two coaches on the hot seat.

#1 Michigan
#13 Penn State
#20 Indiana
#21 Michigan State
#23 Wisconsin

Future outlook: Oh how the tables have been turned (off the field) in the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry. No one in the Big Ten has taken advantage of the turmoil in Columbus than the Wolverines under Brady Hoke. Given the quick turnaround, national prominence of the program and Hoke's ties to California, don't expect to see much drop off in Michigan recruiting over the next few years if they continue to win. Joe Paterno figures to retire at some point but Penn State sits in the middle of a talent-rich state and will continue to a solid job on the recruiting trail going forward. New Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson has done good job early on in locking up in-state talent and landing the number one quarterback in the country is a giant block to build on with future recruiting classes. Ohio State has been hampered with all that has gone but if they hire a top flight coach - as one would expect - all bets are off. The recruits in the state of Ohio alone will be able to keep them in the upper echelon of the conference regardless. Also watch out for Wisconsin, which will likely start getting better quality recruits the next few years following their success on the field.




Current picture: Two top 25 teams, five coaches on the hot seat.

#15 Arizona State
#25 Washington

Future outlook: A few strong years of West Coast talent will form the basis of a strong conference going forward. The biggest cause for concern is the number of coaches who are on the hot seat and can lose their jobs. For some programs, that means starting over in recruiting. For others, it could be an upgrade. With both Los Angeles programs each dealing with some issues, the amount of talent available to programs like Washington, Utah, Colorado and others has never been higher. NCAA issues at Oregon might hamper the Ducks a little but as long as they're wearing a crazy uniform and have Phil Knight writing checks, they'll be ok. USC has continued to get top talent despite and should rebound from sanctions quicker than most programs because of that. If anything though, California will become much more of a battleground state with more programs looking at the recruits coming out the next few years.




Current picture: Eight top 25 teams, two coaches on the hot seat.

#3 Florida
#5 Alabama
#8 Texas A&M
#9 Auburn
#10 Virginia Tech
#11 LSU
#14 South Carolina
#22 Vanderbilt

Future outlook: The nation's best conference on the field and the recruiting trail will only get better with the additions of Texas A&M and Virginia Tech. It's scary, actually, to think about. LSU, the Mississippi schools, Florida and Alabama should all benefit to increased access to Texas and the Aggies won't be any slouch by telling recruits that they can stay home and play in the SEC. The same is true of the state of Virginia, which has annually produced plenty of great players. Other schools have taken advantage of Georgia's increase in FBS talent the past several years and even though UGA has a coach on the hot seat, they'll be able to recruit well because of who's nearby. Will Muschamp has shown there's no drop off in the state of Florida for the Gators going forward and the Alabama-Auburn rivalry is becoming just as fierce on the recruiting trail going forward as the Iron Bowl has been on the field. Bottom line, no one recruits like the SEC and they're only getting stronger with their recent additions.

Recruiting impact small for ACC's newest members

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Well, that happened quickly.

The ACC officially added Pitt and Syracuse to the conference, it was announced Sunday morning. While the reverberations of the move are still being felt across the collegiate landscape, one area where things will likely be all quiet for both schools is on the recruiting front.

Though each school draws upon a decent talent base, this isn't as impactful a move as Texas A&M heading to the SEC. Will it allow a school like Maryland to grab a player or two from Pennsylvania? Sure. Does it allow Syracuse to reach into Virginia or Florida a little more than they used to? Sure. But we're talking about a handful of players - if that - every year across the conference. The shift to 14 teams does little in football recruiting outside of being able to pitch playing at new venues like Virginia Tech or Clemson.

Basketball recruiting may be a whole another matter. With increased access to New York City for schools such as Duke or Virginia, the move may be a boon to some coaches. As senior writer Gary Parrish details, the ACC is without a doubt the nation's premier basketball league.

It is not even close to that in football.

While it is true that adding the two schools gives the ACC access to the New York City and Pittsburgh media markets, recruits don't ask a lot about mass media exposure when deciding on what school they'll be committing to. Facilities, coaching staffs and, perhaps most importantly, winning are what counts to most out there. New uniforms also seem to be on the list.

This move opens some doors, closes some others but ultimately the impact itself just isn't that big going forward. Longterm and with some stability with the coaching staffs, the move could be a net gain for all 14 teams. For right now, it's just a whole lot of "meh."

Eric Davis flips from Texas A&M to Oklahoma State

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Texas A&M to the SEC, Oklahoma State to the Pac-12, it's a crazy time in college athletics. One constant? Players flipping commitments from one school to another. Tyler (Texas) defensive end Eric Davis doesn't care what conference he plays in but he does think he'll be a better fit in Stillwater than College Station, changing his commitment between the two schools on Monday.

"Really I was just looking at the defenses that the two schools are playing and I was just thinking about where I do I see myself playing as a defensive end and what type of system do I want to play in when I get to college and things like that," Davis told OStateIllustrated.com. So I felt that I really didn't like it and didn't want to change to a 3-4 because at John Tyler we run a 4-3 too and I didn't really want to change so I feel that just staying in a 4-3 is where I'm more comfortable at and I wouldn't really have to change that much."

The talented 6-foot-3, 240-pounder has only taken an unofficial visit to campus but the biggest reason he decided to switch his verbal to the Cowboys was his primary recruiter, offensive line coach Joe Wickline.

"Really [it was] Coach Wickline too because every time I talk to him he seems like he's just full of energy and things like that," Davis added. "He's just an outstanding guy and I was thinking since he's been so good to me why not just come down there and play ball for Oklahoma State."

Davis is the 13th commitment for Oklahoma State's class of 2012. Mike Gundy and staff have hit Texas hard, as is expected, grabbing 10 players out of the Lone Star state.

Top 10 safety Blake commits to Texas A&M

Posted by Bryan Fischer

While most of Texas A&M's class of 2012 was on board before the Aggies rumored move to the SEC surfaced, it appears their latest addition is very excited about the possible departure from the Big 12. San Antonio (Texas) defensive back Colin Blake is the latest commitment for the program and the pending move was one of the reasons why he committed over the holiday weekend.

"I think it makes them more attractive to me because that's the best conference in college football so I would love to have a chance to play in the SEC," Blake told AggieYell.com. "They look real good going into the year this year and I think they are going to do well in the Big 12 this year. I like A&M a lot, so I want them to win the Big 12."

The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder held offers from Arizona, Cal, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Missouri and others. Interestingly, Blake had given up football early in his career to concentrate on basketball but ended up coming back to play on the gridiron and, as a result, ended up with a full ride to a great in-state school.

"I wasn't excelling in basketball though," he said. "Football is the sport at our school so I decided to go back, give it a try, and see what happened. I came out during our boot about three weeks before spring practice. That's when I figured out that I could still play football."

Blake had 68 tackles and one interception last season as a junior. He becomes the Aggies' 22nd commitment for the class of 2012 and is ranked as the 10th-best safety in the country by MaxPreps.
