I appreciate your honesty on Marshall. I can understand him being ranked #80 right now because he's never played WR before so remains raw at the position, but there's no OSU recruit I'm more excited about in the 2013 class right now. The kid is a flat out baller and I struggle to believe he won't see a ton of success on the field.
I haven't studied Lewis the way you guys have but, FWIW, my impression of the clips I saw of him at the Opening were that he had great athleticism, quickness and change of direction, but tended to get pushed around pretty easily by the bigger receivers. That diving interception he made in the finals was ridiculous!
I think one of the problems Lewis is facing in the rankings is the cornucopia of top flight DBs this year. For the life of me I can't ever recall so many top notch DBs in one class. The top 100 already is so dominated by DBs that I'd speculate the services feel the need to space some of these guys out, and all the DBs also are being evaluated against their peers, who are abnormally awesome this year. In other words, I'd bet he'd rank somewhat higher in last year's class.
I'll say it now before he commits to you - I love Treadwell. I think that guy is underrated at 71. He's such a classic great route running, tall, fast, long armed prototypical WR with nice hops and hands.

I'm just throwing it out there, but maybe he gets into trouble doing things that we wouldn't want at Michigan, or he has problems with grades.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
The star average for USC may be the highest ever.
If they close with Hargreaves they're basically recruiting at video game levels.
and lololololol at the idea of Jourdan getting dropped, cannot possibly be serious. Dude does nothing but dominate camps all spring/summer and then gets DROPPED? Reeeaaaalllllll wizards doing the talent evaluations ots
USC landed Vanderdoes as well? USC might have the #1 class with like 16 commits!
Their class could be one of the best ever and only have 18 commits, unreal.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Yeah if they land Hargreaves and Willis that is just sick.
They have 6 5* right now on Scout and they have a realistic chance of have 8 when signing day rolls around, that's just wrong.
Well if they only take 18 kids, it will be the best 18 kid recruiting class in history.....that is certain.
It will be an 18 kid class with possibly a 4.5 star average.... Not bad to split the class with 4 and 5 stars... I guess we will see if Kiffin is a good coach or just a great recruiter... Tee Martin is putting in work out there.... I am sure the boosters are as well.

-We will release an updated Top247
-Lots of talk about Reuben Foster and other recruiting topics.
Thanks again for joining us!
Somebody should call in and ask about Lewis
my vote is for you, take one for the team. btw we don't have the number
yeah that dude is a hack...he had no offers
I cannot believe USC's class, and good for them. Plus I loved the shirts our 15 is better then your 25....classic.
That talent will be wasted though under kiffin. this will be a short lived victory for the trojans. kiffin will ruin everything with another scandal or terrible coaching.
I'm not the type that calls in to those shows.
i might call in as an ohio fan and have a complete freakout out on JC on why marshall is a 4 star
Agreed. The man is a master of falling up.
Yea, USCw has a chance at ending up with the #1 class with the 18 they will bring in.
Michigan will end up top 10, but they need help to end up in the top 5. If you look at Michigan's rating of 756.15, it would have been the #11 class for the 2012 cycle and the #12 class for the 2011 cycle.
Landing Treadwell will move the needle a bit, but the main thing they need is bumps from current commits. Morris getting a bump yesterday moved the rating up a point, but they will need quite a few other commits to get bumps to move Michigan up to the low to mid 760's that it takes to land a top 5 class here at 247.
I posted on it earlier this spring, but while Michigan has a ton of 4* commits, quite a few of them are low 4*'s. Michigan had more top end 4* kids last year compared to this year, at this point.
247 likes to say that guys move down, cuzothers moved up? Who knows. Glad to see Shane get his 5*. UsC is killing it.
That usually refers to their ranking not their individual rating.
David Dawson is saying that this BBQ will be one to remember. My guess is Derrick Green and Laquon Treadwell will both commit.
good thing the NCAA really laid down the law there
I know you're kidding but they can only hamstring them so much. Not their fault that USC is killing it in recruiting.
