10.Jul.2012 Recruiting Picking up a Little…?
Beavs land Jordan Villamin today. He's a 3-star WR with a Utah offer.
D.J. Martin wrote on Facebook that he was considering OSU. This is where that rumor on Rivals started yesterday. Hard to say how much there is to it–could have been a joke for all we know.
Dashon Hunt is a 4-star CB interested in visiting the Beavs. I believe that interest is genuine, but I've heard Nebraska is in the lead right now. Hunt's film is impressive. It's hard to have faith in the staff closing the deal, though. CB and DT need to be priorities, and they need to sign legit talent, not the "coach 'em up" types who take 3 years to see the field. This year is a crossroads on and off the field.
Keep in mind the mainstream media needs to keep fans interested or they'll lose ad revenue and/or subscriptions, so even the slightest interest will get a more positive spin than it probably deserves. On a scale of 10, recruiting is a 2 right now. It was a 1 a couple weeks ago, so it is heating up, but we're not even close to a slow boil yet.
