I need to focus more on threads like this. I was out of the loop on our recruiting last year. I don't know much about our true frosh class this season and it sucks.
If anyone feels like posting a small recap of our recruiting for this season and highlight the most highly touted, I'd be happy!
Nifae Lealao is a cool name. Don't know how to pronounce it. I like that he's athletic and 6'5.
-Ryan Burns QB from Virginia, who was offered over Max Browne(#1 rated QB by the "services"). Burns 6'5 225lbs and ripped to shreds, he could be one of the most physically imposing players on the team from day 1. He ran a run heavy single wing offense in HS. Burns has unlimited potential.
-Mike Tyler OLB out of Ohio should be an excellent pass rusher, Lanky very good speed
-Peter Kalambayi OLB out of North Carolina. Explosive pass rusher with a college ready physique. High upside.
-Kevin Palma ILB from a small school in the San Joaquin Valley. Already 240+ so he could grow out of the position. He is extremely athletic he spent most of his HS career on offense playing WR.
-Sean Barton ILB from Utah will go his mission and be back in 2015. Noted for his speed. Awesome HS RB too, he's is a super athlete.
-Austin Hooper TE from the famed De La Salle HS. Excellent blocking TE, who needs more experience in the passing game
-Eric Cotton TE out of Idaho, explosive receiving TE with polished route running and reliable hands along the lines of Coby Fleener.
-Greg Taboda TE out of Georgia, the biggest of the 3 TEs in the class., Toboda seems to be the jack of all trades not as talented a blocker as Hooper or as talented a pass receiver as Cotton but good at both. Purely speculation but he seems like a guy who might move to DE at some point
-David Bright OT/OG from Mater Dei HS, noted for his super nasty streak. You can watch his highlights and see he borders on the line of being a dirty with quite a few hits.
-Thomas Oser C from Harvard-Westlake same school as Jonathan Martin. A true center prospect who actually played center in HS
-Francis Owusu Chris' little brother from Oaks Christian, I think most would agree best HS WR we have signed in the Harbaugh/Shaw era
-Tijaun Thomas short WR/Corner prospect out of Louisiana.Excellent speed and while short he is pretty stocky and physical.
The 4 guys who excite me the most are
