  • Here’s a good look at how high school offensive linemen recruits are evaluated.
  • Spurrier isn’t worried about Clowney getting hurt because “He doesn’t stand around a pile stiff-legged.”  Wonder how he’d feel if South Carolina faced an opponent that cut blocked.
  • Texas beat writer thinks ESPN will be announcing an agreement on the SEC Network soon.
  • Tennessee conducted a formal study on a subject about that any mook who’s followed SEC recruiting during the last five or so years could have given Dave Hart the lowdown over a couple of beers after work.
  • Somebody comes up with a model that purports to use recruiting rankings as a predictor of the college football season.  Somewhat surprisingly, Georgia overperformed last season.
  • And John Infante tells you three things about the National Letter of Intent you didn’t know.

“The thing is right now I don’t want to sign somewhere and then have the coach bounce after signing day,” Bellamy said.

Bonus chutzpah points to be awarded to Kirby Smart if he was among those using that pitch.
