Brent Calloway, On the strength of fly Brent Calloway Auburn, Alabama moves up to No. 3. Clemson, after Stephon Anthony Steward and to sign, rises to No. 4. USC remains at No. 5, while the blades in Auburn No. 7.Florida State is still ranked No. 2, but it is very close to exceeding the fight against Ireland. If the Seminoles landed linebacker Tony Stewart, they would be the No. 1 right now.It was back and forth for a while with a lot of discussion about whether he would play running back or linebacker in college. This has been a big part of his indecision, as Auburn told him about the possibility of playing running back on the Plains.
Something says that the fighting between Alabama and Auburn will recruit more intense in coming years.
The ESPNU 150 prospect signed with the Crimson Tide on Wednesday. He was originally committed to Alabama goes all the way back to April, but things happen to the bowl of the U.S. Army All-America last month when he announced he would instead sign with Auburn.
Continuing its ability to shock an entire state, coveted four-star athlete Brent Calloway made his third college choice in less than a month – and this time it is binding.
The talented running back / linebacker from Russellville, Ala., has signed his national letter of intent Wednesday to play at Alabama, ending a contentious battle between the Crimson Tide and Auburn.
Calloway had committed to Alabama after his junior season and went through all of 2010 – including his entire senior season and his invitation to the Game U.S. Army All-American – as a lock for the Crimson Tide.
That is, until January 8, when Calloway came out publicly and surprised the coaching staff at Alabama from his commitment to Auburn.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound dual threat at the time said that the culture of Alabama linebackers were too deep for him to compete, and Calloway gave Auburn a better chance of running back to the next level. The switch also helped vault Auburn in the top tier of national recruiting classes for 2011.
The best hope of Alabama announced on national television during the game the U.S. Army last month that he was switching his commitment from Alabama to Auburn. When he returned home, his Facebook page has been lit up like the Fourth of July.
“I had to say things they hope I break my legs,” said the TimesDaily Calloway. “I’ve had death threats. They hope that I lose my scholarship. A bunch of crazy stuff. ”
And for what? The hope of winning a few football games? An opportunity to brag around the water cooler?
People should be given IQ tests to use social networking media in the same way they give driving tests to be allowed to drive a car. If you’re too stupid to know what common decency, buy a stamp and send a letter like the old days.
The waiting game is bluer with a trend of blue-chippers. Terrell Pryor expected in March before signing with Ohio State in 2008. Bryce Brown and Seantrel Henderson did the same thing last year.
Will Clowney learn something new in the next two weeks will shape his decision? Or does he want all the attention to himself?
Football coaches preach until they are blue in the face that the player you are bigger than the team. And yet they hold scholarships for blue-chipper and I wonder why they come to college with a sense of entitlement.
