Rumors swirling that Shurod Thompson is a non-qualifier (despite upping his GPA), thus all the DB offers late in the game. This is what the Bay Area contact told us months ago. I haven’t heard anything definitive yet, but him saying that and all the late DB offers does imply there could be an issue.

KJ Sailrs Jr and Andrew Davis are guys they’re now looking at. Kenny Turnier has exploded on the scene. Says he’s a Beav commit still, but a lot of programs are in his ear. Seems to be really “enjoying” the attention, and the last thing we need is another SC. I’d scout his personality closely if I were the staff.

Not many game breaking offensive players this class, but Kevontre Whetzel is a guy to keep an eye on.

Beaverkman and Blazer can chime in with some more names as they have time.

    1. This would be a real blow to the class.

    2a. Is there a real shot to get either of them?

    2b. Hard to really say, you can’t blame the kid for being excited about his recruitment blowing up.

    3. He would be a good addition even though this class is already full of wideouts

    Also this is my first comment so, Hello everyone!

            It’s been like a year since we talked about it, but my Ghostery still shows Google Analytics here. If I view page source, I see all its code too… e.g.:

            var _gaq = _gaq || [];
            _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-19553164-1’]);
            _gaq.push([‘_setDomainName’, ‘.angrybeavs.com’]);

    I don’t have much time to chime in today. Wanted to mention a few other names of guys who are still up in the air but possibilities:

    Fred Mauigoa(visiting this coming weekend)
    Bradlee Anae(visited the past weekend)
    David Luafatasaga(visited in november)

    A couple of names to cross off the list are LJ Teo and Keanu Saleapaga. Lack of space unfortunately, so they’ll end up elsewhere. I believe Saleapaga is a mission guy however, so don’t count him out for the future.

    Also, saw that Shurod Thompson is playing in national team All-star game in Texas (US vs Canada) on the 31st. Hopefully that can be taken as a sign that he’s currently eligible. Keep in mind, the eligibility questions are just rumor and just something to keep an eye on.

    Evidence points towards a renewed interest in recruiting the DB position late in the cycle, which seems curious.

    Also, a guy who was once mentioned with OSU awhile back, Devron Davis, has had his name pop up again. Don’t think the Beavs have been recruiting him the past year, but suddenly in the last week there was a report of him visiting possibly. Hard to believe anything you hear about him though, so I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Things should move fast over the next week as we near signing day. The staff seems to always have an ace up their sleeve when signing deadlines arrive, so don’t be surprised if something develops regarding a player we never thought was on their radar. should be a fun ride.

    I’d be concerned if the coaching staff can’t handle kids with bigger egos. The higher rated the kid, typically the bigger the ego. Wtih rankings widely available, it’s hard for kids not to see where they are ranked.

      Agreed. These are 18 year old male athletes and a bunch of people are saying they want them on their teams. Inflated egos should be expected. It’s up to our coaching staff to manage and channel those egos effectively.

      I guess, but Beaver fans make fun of the Ducks for all their prima donnas. It’s just weird to hear fans say they want those types.

      After SC, I’m just not in the mood for it. But, in general, I agree with you coaches have to manage those types.

        I just think you’re going to turn away a lot of talent if you only recruit humble athletes. There are some great athletes in the pros who don’t have giant egos, but show me a championship team that didn’t have multiple players with giant egos. But they can be managed. Johnny Manziel not withstanding.

        That Bay Area source turned out to be interesting. Said Thompson was a NQ months ago, and also said Thompson and the big name recruits in that area were upset about the Baldwin thing. Now Thompson is looking elsewhere… is it that or something else? Maybe ask him.

        Or does Indiana have lower academic requirements?

        He’d be a huge loss. My gut tells me this class won’t wind up be as good as it was during the height (i.e. pre Sitake leaving).

    Anyone remember QB David Moor? He had major interest mutually from OSU and has been an SMU commit since spring 2015, is rumored to flip to Memphis, likely on LOI day. SMU will pull his offer if he visits any other program, but apparently he is trying to keep it under wraps that he’s visiting Memphis the day before LOI day. The guy is a headcase and I am so glad OSU saw it early on. As a QB, it’s NOT ok to tell a school that you are committed to them for the past year, then flip on them the day of signing. I think it’s the one position that you simply cannot pull that stunt on.
    Very immature kid, recently freaked out because Oklahoma transfer QB Trevor Knight contacted SMU about possibly transferring there. Remember he freaked out several times because we offered kids that weren’t even in his same signing class year.

        Jimmy Hoffa was related to Dee Andros the mob In turn planted the body in the parker stadium endzone to set him up. Although Dee had connections to the Vegas mob who found out about it and wanted to protect Dee for making them millions with the USC win. On that the Vegas mob made the bid to finish the construction of the north endzone sealing the body forever so the fbi wouldnt find out. Then planted the evidence that led to the Giant stadium endzone to be dug up. The fbi messed up the comunication between the construction Foreman and the Vegas mob. It read “Hoffa is buried in the end zone of the giant killers staduim” they confused it with Giant stadium and dug in the wrong spot………..until now!

            Dying occupations? You know beef doesn’t come from a grocery store right? And in the end they want the gov to follow the rules they wrote and stop ignoring to laws. I’ve written this already, but they shouldn’t be occupying public land, and they are doing the exact same thing those d-bag occupy wall street types were doing. The funny thing is the same people who bitch about Bundy and his morons are the one who supported that OW bullshit. Hypocrisy much?

            Ranching by grazing on public land is a dying occupation, but I know it employs a whopping 100 people in Harney County. It’s too bad they want a free ride while at the same time wrecking the environment. I don’t recall OW taking over a federal building and threatening people with weapons while utilizing terrorist recruitment tactics. This is more severe than OW and reveals elements of domestic terrorism that’s a bigger threat than anything overseas. I don’t think it should be minimized because they’re white dudes.

            I brought up race because it guides people’s perception and reaction. You’re referring to race in an attempt to minimize and shift away from the Bundy group. What do you think your reaction, and others, would be if they aren’t white guys, but instead brown skinned Muslims who did the same thing: armed take over of a federal building, call on Allah (“we know that God’s hand is in this”), be willing to die for their cause, create propaganda videos, recruit new members, and basically encourage a way of life outside the law? People would be absolutely shitting bricks, but since they’re white guys, we use individual adjectives to describe them, not only to try and make sense of it, but also to minimize it. But maybe you extend the same understanding to terrorist groups and can validate their gripe with the U.S. government. That’s cool, I’m all for compassion and understanding. Heck, you even made note of their work ethic and the fact that they pay taxes (except for recently, when they wasted how many thousands of taxpayer dollars and weren’t working during the process?).

            A group of Muslim thugs can’t even make it out of their shooting range in Eastern Oregon, let alone lead an armed march through one of its towns then commandeer federal property and start an armed conflict.

            Your taking these guys to seriously. If they were anything like a Muslim extremists the sheriffs, state police, feds would have been shot at the second they showed there faces near that office. How can you take guys makeing propaganda videos like this seriously? https://youtu.be/N8TTWujUGsU

            Yup there cold blooded killers, LOL. Like I’ve typed numerous times, their grips with the government are real and their execution is dumb. It’s no different from the Ferguson and Baltimore protests. Except one group took over an office and cut down some fences and another burn down their neighborhoods and looted stores. And who again are the terrorists?

            Opportunistic hooliganism during a protest is a completely different thing than what these guys are doing. An ideologue with a gun, a cause they’re willing to die for, being in a organized group focused on that cause, and a belief that God is on their side fits into a whole different category. I’m not sure why you want to put them on the same scale, other than maybe it’s because you are sympathetic to their cause. You might want to check with the cops that at least one of them opened fire on whether they are cold blooded killers or not. We also have to wait and see how the rest plays out. For weeks there was no push against them to see how violent they are. Now that the cops are pushing, that’s being revealed. Also, do these guys warrant the label “Christian extremists”? I wonder why we haven’t heard them be called that yet.

            By definition both of these groups (Ferguson and Baltimore, and Bundy) are terrorists. I had not seen the article on intimidation and harassment before this evening (that federal indictment today). And it doesn’t matter if all or some of a group act up, it still reflects on the group. Would you call the people who showed up at the Refuge then left a few days later terrorists? I mean they were there for some of the occupation.

            The dead guy shot at the cops? Please provide a link. Because I haven’t seen any info on him shooting at cops, only that he may have charged at them.
            I’m simpathetic to their base idea of the government is fucking with land use rules and ranchers are not happy with it. I don’t agree with their demand that BLM and forest service land should be turned over to private and or local government entities. That’s stupid, and a logistical nightmare on both counts.
            They are mormons, or at least the Bundys are. Mormons are extremists by nature, or at least compared to “moderate christians”. And can you really call Mormons, christian? Sure they have jesus, so they have a judeo-christian base(so do muslims), but it just shoots into outer space from there. But it’s really not even on the same level as muslims. I mean when was the last time you saw christians machine gunning women and children down, or sawing people’s heads off? And please God don’t say the Crusades.

            BB… you need to learn a little about the structure of protests.

            Let’s say those who know the goons who are hired by billionaire hedge fund owners know the goons are going to be starting an armed conflict on federal land. Let’s also say they can infiltrate that gang of thugs and tag along.

            Now that our infiltrate is inside the armed gang’s theft of public property, are you suggesting they should turn into our paid infiltrate and break some windows?

            Because that’s what everybody wants. The people I paid to infiltrate the idiots who follow All Hat Bundy must now break some windows… to make that “movement” look bad.

            Mormons qualify as Christians, so Mormon who are extremists are Christian extremists the same way as any Muslim terrorist is a Muslim extremist. You’re relying on what you’re familiar with (white, Christian males), and you’re being manipulated by your lack of familiarity (Muslim extremists). You see overseas terrorists and conclude that it’s a result of the religion, you see domestic terrorists and you apply deeper levels of thinking about their motivations that are outside of their religion. All I’m saying is to apply that level of thinking across the board. In 2001 did you sympathize with Bin Laden’s issue with the U.S. government having a military presence in Saudi Arabia as his main beef?

        Mauigoa is a big deal recruit. Legit 4* offensive lineman. We’ve been in his top 2 all year along with Wazzu. At one point he called us his leader, but more recently he has just said both schools are even. The sticking point is his mom is a VP at the high school where Joe Salavea’s (WSU’s DL coach) brother is the head coach. This is where I hope the extra fan support from OSU fans can help make a difference. There’s very little recognition for him coming from WSU fans.
        Very real possibility he ends up here, but still 50/50. Hopefully the visit goes well this weekend.

    Couple of notes:
    Looks like Struck from Crater is out, grades may have been an issue and he won’t be visiting.
    Anae is a Vandy lean but we might have a shot.
    Hirkley Latu I think is a good chance however he might be a mission guy.
    Not sure where we stand with Sione and Doug T they are rumored for Missions but it seems like they have interest elsewhere BYU but if they go on Mission we can recruit them in 2years.
    That’s the same with Saleapaga who is down to BYU and Colorado but likely going into Mission, probably why usc parted ways.
    Kenny Turnier is looking more solid not visiting IU anymore.
    The 2018 kid cousin of Sands tape is impressive for Sophomore he looks like a beast. Hope we keep Coach Telly here he is tearing it up on the trail!
    Mauigoa is probably an uphill battle but we have shot this weekend to change his mind.
    We might be light on OL commits, but have a Preferred Walk On to Gunnar Braden and del Toro from Grants Pass who could go either side of the line. Both are good gambles for PWO’s.
    We had a visit from Drew Bledsoes kid who is Jr at Summit HS in Bend where drew coaches him. He is a little lite but tape looks good. Neville and him will be QB targets in 2017.
    Kee Whetzel is interesting ATH they visited him 2 x yesterday and are working to get him to visit this weekend.

    ASU is a must win Thursday night imo. If they can get that they’re playing loose with house money Saturday evening because no one expects them to win at McKale. If they drop both of these, a 3-6 record at the turn is a huge hole to overcome. Really need to get this one in Tempe. I fully expect W’s against the Washington and Mountain schools at Gill. That’s 7 wins. Somewhere this team has to find a couple more.

    So who’s left for this recruiting class? Some big names still out there:

    – Fred Mauigoa (3 star OL) visiting this weekend
    – Kee Whetzel (3 star WR) visiting this weekend
    – Bradlee Anae (3 star DE) visited last weekend
    – Kayode Rufai (3 star DE from Portland) visited in November
    – Hirkley Latu (3 star Safety) visited last weekend
    – Kaelin Himphill (3 star LB) – or has he burned that bridge already?
    – Maxs Tupai (4 star DE) visited in Dec. Visited USC last weekend, Oklahoma this weekend.
    – Tyrek Tisdale (3 star ATH) visited in Sept. We are his only visit so far. I think he was a one-time Florida commit.

    Here’s who I think we will lose:
    – Sione Finau (2 star RB) who will likely choose BYU. Mission kid anyways.
    – Doug Taumoelau (3 star DE) who also might choose BYU to stay close to home. I think he may also be a mission kid.

    By the way, I think we hold onto Turnier, Wallace, and Thompson.

    I think we have 4 more slots, because with 24 commits, Timmy Hernandez counts towards last year’s class, plus the 2 mission kids (Finau and Taumoelau) if they end up committing to us. So that leaves us at 21, and I think we can take 25 potentially.
