    Quarterback – Matthew Stafford^ 6-3, 210, 4.7, Dallas Highland Park, TX – Although he had an off year with injuries, from his sensational sophomore season, <st1 ="">Stafford</st1> will still be one of the top quarterbacks in the country.

    <u2 =""></u2>Quarterback - D'Vontrey Richardson^ 6-1, 210, 4.5, Leesburg Lee Co, GA - Richardson is the best Michael Vick clone that I have seen since the real one. He runs left and right with great ease, but when he wants to throw the football, he can really hum it in there. He has over 20 offers to play quarterback and I think that he can. He already has offers from Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State, Alabama, and Auburn,<o =""></o>

    Quarterback – Jevan Snead 6-4, 205, 4.6, <st1:city u1:st="on">Stephenville</st1:city>, <st1:state u1:st="on">TX</st1:state> – Snead took <st1:state u1:st="on"><st1 ="">Texas</st1> </st1:state>by surprise as he completed 175 of 301 passes for 3,025-yards, 23 touchdowns, and a 58% passing completion, while rushing for 518-yards and another 14 touchdowns.

He had 2,000 yards of total offense, and accounted for 26 touchdowns, but his 56 tackles and 4 picks on defense have coaching flocking to New Jersey and he already has 30 offers. Tennessee and Virginia may be the early leaders.



    Safety – Myron Rolle^ 6-3, 210, 4.5, Princeton The Hun School, NJ – Rolle rushed for 1,501-yards, scored 15 touchdowns, and averaged 10.6-yards per carry.

    Safety – Chris Bell 6-3, 210, 4.5, Norfolk Granby, VA – Bell is another outstanding two-way player who can play on either side of the ball in college.

    Safety – John Maddox 6-4, 200, 4.45, Philadelphia West Catholic, PA – Maddox had a fabulous junior season when he recorded 61 tackles and 10 interceptions. He already has several “big-time” offers.



    Safety – Allen Walker^ 6-2, 210, 4.5, Olive Branch, MS - Walker is a sensational athlete who played four positions as a junior. On film, he is a real mauler from his free safety position and he recorded 86 tackles. On offense, he grabbed 25 balls and scored on 9 of those catches.

He was selected to the St Louis All-Metro Team as a junior along with being the only junior selection to the 6A All-State Team. I think that he can punt and kick at the next level. I have invited him to be the punter for the East Team in the All-American Bowl Game and he has accepted. (2006 All-American Bowl)

    Kicker - Kyle Peterson^ 6-4, 190, 4.8, West Covina South Hills, CA - Peterson is an exceptional punter and kicker and he could play either or both position at the next level.

    Emfinger is such a joke to me...........i think LITERALLY, but if not, atleast almost literally, half of his list or more is comprised of TX and Louisiana players.................one list had like 6 of his top 10 DT's from Louisiana.........i don't put any stock into his rankings based on his regional bias........one list i counted had like 50 players from Louisiana and about 25 from Florida and Cali combined.............i didn't bother counting this one, and i don't know if the list i'm referring to was a pre-season or post season list

    I agree, it is a joke that he has CWells as a Fullback... just cause he is huge doens't put him there... if he plays anywhere other than tailback it will be LB
     
  6. Jaxbuck

    Jaxbuck I hate tsun ‘18 Fantasy Baseball Champ

    IIRC he had MoC listed as a FB coming out of HS as well.
     
  7. DCBuckFan

    DCBuckFan Fark You

    which shows how much of a joke he is...

    I think this has been brought up a few times, but it is nearly impossible for a national guy to really have a good opinion of all these players... jsut too many players videos to watch and you really need to see them live to get a great opinion of them..

    I'll just trust our coaches :)

    osubartender23 Purple Nurple King

    Almost every single recruiting "expert" had MoC listed as a FB so if he is a joke, every other recruiting service is too. Alot of his players are from Texas and Louisiana because HE is from there and sees those kids ALOT.

    MililaniBuckeye The satanic soulless freight train that is Ohio St Staff Member Tech Admin

    I'm not so sure that nearly all the services had him listed at a FB, but many indeed did. As for Maxipad listing a buttload of TX/LA players solely because he gets to see them more often, then why even call it a national list?
     
  10. osubartender23

    osubartender23 Purple Nurple King

    The only thing I can think of as an answer for that is because he owns his own website. I know that doesn't make it a "national recruiting" website, but how many people do you think would actually subscribe to a recruting website about Lousiana and Texas? Probably not nearly as many as now.

    In all fairness this is the most unbiased list I have ever seen done by Emfinger. IMO he gives more fair play to the rest of the nation than he normally does.

    I have not posted the Honorable Mention part of the list as it is cumbersome to post b/c it inserts smilies etc....

    He has a few names of interest on that list as well...

    I am not going to bash this list as it looks like it took weeks and weeks to compile.
     
  12. BuckeyeSoldier

    BuckeyeSoldier 2 time Reigning BuckeyePlanet Poker Champion

    Just cuz you are lazy, i counted for you... there are 35 total LA and Tx players on those lists....
     
  13. Highstreet

    Highstreet Freshman

    It seems like last year that almost all the players on the initial list were from TX and LA.....

    My point was at least he is trying.......:biggrin:
     
  14. HilmerJ

    HilmerJ Junior

    well for a person like me...i like to see some rankings to tell me about who are some of the top players....and by the looks of it


    Walls is #1
    Thad Gibson is #1
    Homan is #1
    Wells is #1


    i hope this guy is right

    As bad as he is... he still has four Ohio OL guys listed... man is Ohio stacked at OL this year!!!! :biggrin:
