Speaking of Gardner, if he gets his medical RS, imagine our offense in two years with him as a seasoned QB and Derrick Green/Deveon Smith behind that O-line of ours...
That wreaks of a natty run. 2014 could be THE year..
Just the one?
*the year we start competing for it annually.
I'm thinking that we have a shot in 2013 based on the fact that our schedule is so weak and Lewan came back.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Agree ... if we beat ND. The only other serious threats IMO will be Nebraska and Ohio. Both of those games are late in the season, which provides plenty of time for our new OL to gel, and both are in AA. Gotta beat ND early.

If u read abt Kaepernick when he was in highschool he was super super raw, thin as hell and the arm strength wasn't there yet. He only got one offer and it was bc his play in a BB game. Just makes u think how point less stars raking are with the next Super Bowl campion QB had none
He threw 92 mph as a senior in high school and was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 2009. He's always had the arm strength. Coming out of high school he actually had a bunch of baseball scholarships, but chose to go to Nevada for football.
Like the discussion itt. I don't know a ton about Kizer's celining specifically, but I too love the idea of taking a guy with speed, athleticism, and arm strength who might be a bit of a project as a passer but has a high ceiling. Everyone has been talking about Colin Kaepernick so far, but I'lll remind everyone that RG3 fit that mold out of high school too. Obviously not everyone is going to turn into a Kaepernick or an RG3, but trying to find and develop a player like that is absolutely worth a roster spot or two.
The rankings are pretty accurate. Most of the super Bowl starters are former 4 and 5 stars. Of course there are some who fall through the cracks.
I really hate doing the "hey, next year" thing, but next year, man!!!
I meant it more he was crazy raw. And nobody saw him as a college QB
I'm just saying stars don't make the player
As my man tommyvh points out. We start at 18 for 14'. Attritions, as always, can move that number
I think we'll probably be looking at a class of 20-21 then. As of now, we can backdate one EE to the 2013 class, and I don't anticipate anyone not qualifying, so I bet we take a pretty small class.
Wrong on that account, very few of the starters playing in the Super Bowl were 5* or even 4*. There's a thread on my home board that has complete breakdown, it's worth a read.
If by most you mean less than 40%
Thank you for posting this.
but you have to account for the fact that there are like 2000 3 stars and 40 4 stars.
Gelen Robinson picked up an Illinois offer per Wiltfong.
Probably more of a Plan B guy with the DL we are in on. Worth noting though.
Coaching means so much more that stars In my book
