    Joe Bauserman's favorite target last year. Considered by many to be a Florida State lean, a fact disputed by HH. Schools on his short list include the Criminoles, Miami, LSU, USC and Ohio State. One of the best receivers in the entire country.

    FWIW Lemming has Rouse as his early top player in Florida and top WR in the country

    So are we saying Free Shoes U is going to get a great one, or do we have a legit shot at the kid? Have we offered? Is Bauserman in his ear to try to get him to vist the Bucks? Looks like we are the only northern team in the running, is the weather a factor for the kid?

    I was going off of the "Criminoles, Miami, LSU, USC and Ohio State" list... and one could argue that the state of Mich. is He**, and it is hot there so weather might not be a concern to FL kid going there :tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2:

    just kidding.... didn't know scUM was in the running...

    So are we saying Free Shoes U is going to get a great one, or do we have a legit shot at the kid? - they have been rumored as the favorite, he is in their backyard and that school has a track record of putting kids at FSU- plus he has been to quite a few FSU games and practices, including this Spring

    Have we offered? - according to Insiders- YES

    Is Bauserman in his ear to try to get him to vist the Bucks? - i sure would like to think so but Joe is probably preoccupied with his with his own future right now

    There was a feature in the newest mag. talking about Fred Rouse going pro. He feels that if he is drafted within the first 5 rounds that he would go pro. But he feels that he will be drafted in the first three rounds... Dunno if there is a thread about this already but i couldn't find one

    HH and others what is your take on this..
  12. My thoughts on this. Before any high school player starts talking about entering the draft they should wait until all of these appeals are finished. I have a feeling that both sides are going to exhauste themselves on trying to "win".

    Assumeing MoC wins after all is said and done, I would guess that after a few of the "stud" HS players that do go pro turn out to not grasp the pro game in quick fashion, the NFL will chosse not to take the HS kids... now we could see stud soph. go pro and make a big splash (and to a lesser extent possibly a freshman every now and then)...

    I just don't see the NFL taking HS players early in the draft... or at all... maybe they would sign him as a free agent and give the HS kid a shot at making the practice squad... I think the majority of the kids will not make the jump though....

    Think about how many stud HS kids have trouble going from HS to college... and how many stud college players have trouble going from college to pro...

    The fact is a 35 year old would break an 18 year old in half...

    That's what happen when the media keeps writing up about these youngsters. Their heads get big, and they think they will run over people like they did in high school. The level between high school and college is a hugh gap. Most high school will have two D-I college players at best. So if you are a good player in high school going against mediocre players, of course you will look great. In fact, most D-I recuirts don't even play their first year in college because they need to learn the game and develope their young bodies. The number one surprises about college football for these youngsters is the speed of the game. In addition, the level between college and pros is even bigger because these men are now bigger and stronger as their bodies continue to mature. Maurice Clarrett might have several good games in the NFL this season (100 yards), but his body will pay heavily. I wish him the best...for however long he lasts. As for these high school players...please don't let the lure of money and fame paralyze or even kill you.
