RECRUITING: Transcript from Scott Kennedy Chat

Tonight's chat with Scout.com Recruiting Expert went very well with over 177 folks joining us. Over two dozen questions related to Florida Recruiting were answered as well as a brief free-form chat afterwards. For those of you who missed a fantastic, chat, here's a transcript for your reading pleasure...

gators802 (Jun 14, 2005 9:02:12 PM)
Scott, do you see Snead as a 5-star? Will he be considered for the Army All-Star game?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:02:25 PM)
802, I think he's getting to be that way...

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:02:39 PM)
I talked with Jamie on the way home, and said... "Jamie, hes ahead of Tebow"

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:02:51 PM)
and I know Tebow was pretty much considered a lock for a 5 star a month ago...

GATORooski (Jun 14, 2005 9:02:57 PM)
Scott, thanks for chatting with us tonight and sharing your thoughts on Camp Meyer. What one player really impressed you the most and why?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:03:11 PM)
they took 6 QB's to the Game last year... he'll certainly be in the running

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:03:55 PM)
one player that impresses me the most? I'm a big fan of Ryan Hill. I think I'm a little higher on him than some coaches, but he just loves to compete. Ricky Gary was probably the best overall player out therer

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:04:02 PM)
not the best prospect, because of his height, but the best player

gatorbogey (Jun 14, 2005 9:04:10 PM)
scott, how are some of the other SEC teams doing recruiting so far this year? how are the new coaches doing at ole miss and LSU? how is shula doing at bama and/or croom doing at miss state?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:04:59 PM)
Ole Miss is generating a lot of Buzz with Orgeron. They sent out a lot of early offers to get the momentum going. Mississippi State has been a little slower. They have 5 commitments from two schools. The two Pensacola kids are solid players.

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:05:15 PM)
LSU is going about things a lot slower under Miles. We'll see how that works

blissgator (Jun 14, 2005 9:05:23 PM)
Scott, we are in with some bigname CBs. Who do you think we're looking best for at the moment? Thanks.

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:05:29 PM)
Shula is a very good recruiter, and if Alabama wins this year, they should have a very good class

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:06:02 PM)
I like Florida and RIckerson if I had to name one right now. I still think Ryan Hill likes Miami, but they haven't offered yet... he missed their camp to take the ACT

GatorSwagger (Jun 14, 2005 9:06:28 PM)
Scott, Thoughts on how Meyer and staff are doing early in the recruiting process?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:07:28 PM)
Swagger, they're knocking it out of the park. They're unofficial visit weekend two weekends ago looked like an All-Star Team. I think they are poised to have an absolutely monster year this eyar

gatorboy23 (Jun 14, 2005 9:07:58 PM)
Where do you think CJ Spiller ends up?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:08:15 PM)
I think Spiller ends up a Gator... I'll keep that one short and to the point :)

aaagator (Jun 14, 2005 9:08:35 PM)
Scott what is your take on the DT in State if you had to rank them? Folks like Deas, Stirrups, Ellis and Odom?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:09:37 PM)
Several of the DT's I've seen look like OL's to me. Deas and Ellis are both carrying a little extra weight for the DT position and may end up at OL. I love Odom, and I haven't seen Stirrups yet.

gators802 (Jun 14, 2005 9:09:48 PM)
Scott, what do you think of Tally CB Marcus Udell?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:10:17 PM)
802, he's a great football player, and he's probably the best prospect on that team loaded with good prospects. Great year in Tally this year

gatorbogey (Jun 14, 2005 9:10:37 PM)
Scott, how will the new ncaa rules affect how Scout.com sponsors camps in the coming year?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:11:23 PM)
Bogey, it depends on the rules. I haven't seen them yet. If we need to move combines to high schools, junior colleges, or NFL facilities, we will. ONe of our best events this year was at a junior college

gatoriniowa (Jun 14, 2005 9:11:45 PM)
Scott, which top prospects from Georgia does Meyer and UF have the best shot at getting?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:12:41 PM)
The group at Stephenson looks to be up for grabs. I like FSU and Marcus Ball though, we'll see. Mario Fannin is listing 4 out of staters as well.

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:13:54 PM)
Yes they are. it was Florida and Georgia early, but Miami made a strong push and took Georgia's spot. The coaches there told him he'd get a shot at QB, but if it didn't work, he'd play WR, and he was cool with that....

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:14:48 PM)
Sam Young... right now, I'm in doubt... when in doubt, I go with the home team... I've said, Florida, Michigan or Penn State for a while...

jackie (Jun 14, 2005 9:15:01 PM)
I realize it's VERY, VERY early in the recruiting season, but at this point, are things beginning to shape up so that UF may have the #1 class? Might the talk be true? C'mon, make a gatorgirl happy!

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:15:52 PM)
I married a Gator Girl :) ... it's hard to say who is going to have the #1class.. the difference between 1 and 6 could be just one player... but yes... Florida is going to be in that position easily...

freeds (Jun 14, 2005 9:16:04 PM)
What is the word on DB Rickerson? Is he waiting on his brother and teammate for offers or will he pull the trigger by himself?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:16:54 PM)
I think he will do what's best for him and go where he wants to. A lot of that package deal stuff is just talk... but, since one is a brother, that could play a factor, but the only really big school I know that I see as a threat right now is Penn State for both...

tngatr (Jun 14, 2005 9:17:10 PM)
Scott, what did you think of the DT that surprised at the camp, Terron Sanders?

hollywoodbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:17:11 PM)
Scott I found out he was the one in the orange helmet and grey jersey at the swamp

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:17:50 PM)
he was quick off the ball, and he was eating people on on the line... I just posted film on him on Saturday I believe...

blackdiamondbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:18:27 PM)
I feel like we are in some covert operation. Had dinner the other night with a very influential booster, hell he called Foley 3 or 4 times during the baseball game on Saturday night. He thinks we lose 3 or 4 times this Year. Do the recruits give Meyer a pass on this season?

Solari (Jun 14, 2005 9:18:53 PM)
(Clarification - Booster, not Foley thinks...)

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:19:25 PM)
I think so... it's more about how you play... if they show up and work hard and show improvement without looking out of sorts, then recruits will listen to the "we need the right players to run this system" pitch should Florida stumble a few times.

gatorvet (Jun 14, 2005 9:19:31 PM)
Scott, we've heard alot about the success FSU has with their big football banquet held, conveniently, just prior to National Signing Day. Seems to make a big impression on kids who wait until the end to commit (usually a few big names). Any idea if Meyer plans on doing something similar at UF?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:20:23 PM)
GV, I don't know right now, and a lot of that "closing strong" thing by FSU is smoke and mirrors... most of the time they've locked up their class by Christmas, just like everyone else... anyone really think FSU "closed" with Fred Rouse?

GATORooski (Jun 14, 2005 9:20:33 PM)
How highly will Deonte Thompson of Glades Central be rated next year/

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:21:08 PM)
if he can play football half as well as he can run, he's going to be one of the top prospects in the country... I'll let you in on a little secret.... he can play football :)

jpgator57 (Jun 14, 2005 9:21:25 PM)
Scott, is Hornsby and Tebow a package deal? Where might Hornsby go if tebow goes elsewhere?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:22:01 PM)
I don't think they're a "package deal" I think Hornsby ends up with Florida... I still think Florida is probably the team to beat for Tebow

jpgator57 (Jun 14, 2005 9:22:15 PM)
Scott, any idea where Rolle lands?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:22:53 PM)
The first team I heard was Oklahoma, but a player like that is going to let it ride itself out for a while... he seems like an Army Game type of commitment

tngatr (Jun 14, 2005 9:23:00 PM)
Scott, what did you think of the DT that surprised at the camp, Terron Sanders?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:23:34 PM)
he was quick off the ball, but not real tall.... I posted film on him late last week playing DT...

JKush (Jun 14, 2005 9:23:51 PM)
Scott, what are your thoughts about the current status of Tebow? Do you think the commitment of Snead had any affect on his interest to play at UF?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:24:57 PM)
Kush, I don't think so... I think he feels comfortable enough with his ability to compete that if he wants to be a Gator, that's where he would go.... I mean, if Midgett still enrolls at Florida when Leak commits, then Tebow certainly isn't going to be afraid to compete with Snead :)

jackie (Jun 14, 2005 9:25:07 PM)
Scott, you have good taste in women! :) On another note, what do you think about Urban Meyer's ability to recruit? Thanks for your time.

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:26:17 PM)
Funny thing is that the knock on Meyer when he was talking about getting hired was that he would have trouble recruiting in this area... well, dang near every recruit I talk to says Florida is recruiting them the hardest now.... winning is the best recruiter, and you have a 13-0 Coach at one of the top programs in the country....

blackuf (Jun 14, 2005 9:26:25 PM)
Where do you think Daren Rose ends up?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:26:48 PM)
Rose was looking real hard at Duke for a while, but I think he likes Florida a lot.

hollywoodbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:26:48 PM)
Folks please remember that Scott deals mainly with the southeast in recruiting. Thanks

gatoriniowa (Jun 14, 2005 9:27:10 PM)
Scott, do you think UF could get Andre Smith or Tim Hawthorne from AL? Both a possibility? Who are the teams to beat for both?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:28:02 PM)
Smith is wide open, so it wouldn't surprise me if he were to go to a team like Florida... or auburn, or Bama, or Tennessee, or LSU, or..... Hawthorne was a big Tennessee fan to begin with, so they are going to be tough to beat along with Auburn and Alabama

Solari (Jun 14, 2005 9:28:06 PM)
Over 177 folks in chat, folks.

cpp1745 (Jun 14, 2005 9:28:17 PM)
Scott, are we close to Cunningham? DE georgia

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:28:47 PM)
I don't know if Florida is close to a commitment, but Florida is definitely recruiting him hard and doing a good job with it

freeds (Jun 14, 2005 9:28:56 PM)
Can you comment on Patterson from Santa Fe? Is he a legit WR prospect for the big three?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:29:05 PM)
I haven't seen him yet...

blissgator (Jun 14, 2005 9:29:08 PM)
Scott, who do you think are the best WR prospects in FL and the Southeast?Thanks.

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:29:29 PM)
I'm on record here: http://recruiting.scout.com/3/2006_fb_south_100.html

DieAGator (Jun 14, 2005 9:29:42 PM)
Scott, do you feel Meyer and Co might be far ahead of other schools right now because of unusual and creative early activity but other schools will close the gap as they get their own recruiting house in order later in the year.. Or, does it strike you that Meyer and Co will hold these impression til next February? Thanks, I'll hang up and listen now

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:31:21 PM)
I think that Zook and his staff worked their tails off nationally and helped build on what Spurrier did with the program. The kids now grew up with Florida winning 6 SEC titles, just like the kids of the 80's grew up watching alabama dominate. Meyer is taking the ball and running with it.... Spurrier built the program, Zook kept it hot in the recruit's minds, and now Meyer is bringing it all together... that's how I see it any way

gator70 (Jun 14, 2005 9:31:31 PM)
Scott, does a 8-3 record this year hurt the Gators in recruiting.

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:31:59 PM)
I don't think so Gator... it's an easy recruiting pitch... "we were one play away from 10-1 this year, and you're that guy"

rajin (Jun 14, 2005 9:32:07 PM)
Scott, thoughts on Toyran Smith?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:32:37 PM)
Big middle linebacker... could end up at fullback on the college level... reminds me of a big 10 type of guy....

hollywoodbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:32:50 PM)
I think they might want to know where

hollywoodbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:32:56 PM)
school

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:33:45 PM)
I don't know where Toryan Smith will end up though... if Georgia gets serious about him, you have to watch out for them... his dad Blocked for Herschel...

DoctorV (Jun 14, 2005 9:33:58 PM)
Scott, has it been you experience that starting QB's would cliam to be "GOD" while lying in the middle of the road is good or bad for recruiting?

hollywoodbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:33:58 PM)
sorry I couldnt let this one slide.

hollywoodbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:34:19 PM)
couldnt resist that one

Solari (Jun 14, 2005 9:34:28 PM)
LOL

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:34:56 PM)
honestly, the bad press doesn't really seem to hurt that much.... it's much more important to us lunatics on the message boards than a 17 year old high school kid :)

GATORooski (Jun 14, 2005 9:35:02 PM)
Scott, can you give us 2 or 3 key things that make the Urban Meyer recruiting machine go?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:35:10 PM)
hard work and winning

rebekah (Jun 14, 2005 9:35:32 PM)
Scott, how do you compare Myer's ability to recruit as to Zook's?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:36:33 PM)
I think Meyer sells the ability to win, I think Zook sold the individual... does that make sense? Meyer sells Florida, while Zook sells the kid... that's been my impression anyway...

DieAGator (Jun 14, 2005 9:36:44 PM)
Scott, who does Micah Johnson seem to like?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:37:09 PM)
He likes a bunch of teams, but Louisville could end up keeping him in state....Michigan has recruited that state very well too

blackuf (Jun 14, 2005 9:37:17 PM)
What about the linebacker from Tampa AJ Jones?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:37:45 PM)
I don't know what he is thinking as far as schools go right now, but he's one of the best over all players in the south regardless of position....

Bocagtr66 (Jun 14, 2005 9:37:55 PM)
What would be the one recruit UF gets you would end up saying WOW!!!!

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:38:35 PM)
no one in state, because I always expect the best guys to stay in state... so, let's go with a couple of guys already mentioned... Andre Smith, Micah Johnson, Myron Rolle....

hollywoodbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:38:52 PM)
I would have said Carl Johnson

gators802 (Jun 14, 2005 9:38:56 PM)
Scott, How good is CB Jai Eugene and is it true he is Ike Hillard's (former Gator receiver) cousin?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:39:11 PM)
yeah, that one was already a "wow"

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:39:40 PM)
Jai is one heck of an athlete... smooth... looks a lot like Fayson, but not quite as tall... I don't know if there s a family connection there or not

island8tor (Jun 14, 2005 9:39:50 PM)
Scott: give us a name of a kid you really like that's in the sleeper catagory right now?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:40:26 PM)
how about Zackery Handerson and Emmanuel Cook

Solari (Jun 14, 2005 9:40:45 PM)
I have a question from BlackDiamonBob which I deleted by accident - he wanted to know how you think the Florida Gators will do this year under Meyer in football?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:41:35 PM)
How do I think Florida will do this year? 9-2... that's a blanket answer for all 3 SEC East teams :) they're all so even I can see them all beating eachother and then maybe dropping one to a team in the west

hollywoodbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:41:48 PM)
boo

Solari (Jun 14, 2005 9:42:26 PM)
5 more minutes, folks, and then we'll open the room up.

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:42:28 PM)
I always stick with the home team when I don't know what a kid is thinking... my gut says Michigan/Florida battle with Florida coming out on Top... but that's just a guess...

afghan56 (Jun 14, 2005 9:42:41 PM)
Do you think that FSU has any more non-qualifiers? What do you think of their strategy to recruit so many borderline kids?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:43:36 PM)
afghan.... if you can get them back in a year with 5 to play 4, I don't think it's a bad strategy as long as they are good quality kids... some of those kids have some character questions though.... and that worries me more than the grades...

Ron (Jun 14, 2005 9:43:53 PM)
Scott, It looks like the dynamics of recruiting has really changed the last few years, but Florida has pretty much stayed the same with its recruiting until this year. We have alot of top kids that are interested very early in tthe Gators. Would you comment?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:44:36 PM)
kind of what I talked about earier.... to me, Florida is the team that dominated while this group of kids were growing up... if you are a child of the 90's, Florida was the team....

JGrayhound (Jun 14, 2005 9:45:03 PM)
Scott, you mentioned Spiller looks good to UF...what other RBs do you think UF has a chance with?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:45:52 PM)
with Spiller and walker... not sure they'll need any more...

gatoriniowa (Jun 14, 2005 9:45:58 PM)
Scott, where do you see Justin Williams going? Seems like it is a UF-UGA battle

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:47:15 PM)
I think you have it right... I don't know how hard either school is pressing him right now though.... he got a lot of early hype and a lot of "foot in the door offers"

GatorAnger (Jun 14, 2005 9:47:36 PM)
Who is the better prospect on the OL...Sam Young or Carl Johnson?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:48:29 PM)
I like Sam Young better... but I'd take either... he's a bit taller, plays with leverage, and moves his feet better... if it weren't for Andre Smith, I'd say Young is the best OL I've seen in 4 years... and with his size advantage, he still might end up being the best OL

Solari (Jun 14, 2005 9:48:31 PM)
Folks, we'll be opening up chat now....Go easy on Scott! ;) Many thanks to Scott for joining us tonight...


<B>REGULAR CHAT BEGINS HERE...</B>

Thanks Scott, always a pleasure

DieAGator (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:07 PM)
Scott, what does a written offer have in it. Don't they tell a recruit where he stands and what it will take before the player can commit?

jackie (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:10 PM)
Thanks, Scott

Debary Gator (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:12 PM)
OL Sam Young a Gator? (Sorry - in late)

GatorSwagger (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:13 PM)
LMAO @ Wyatt sexton. You're crazy whoever you are.

UFChrisM7 (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:14 PM)
Scott, were you at Camp today?

rajin (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:15 PM)

Scott, who do you think will be our next verbal?

Calcugator (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:35 PM)
Wyatt (btw, glad you could make it here with your busy schedule), you handled the pressure of creating the universe in just 7 days...so how is it that you can't handle the pressure of being FSU's QB?

GatorAngler (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:35 PM)
danka

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:39 PM)
Die... a written offer will tell them that they have to accept it in a reasonable amount of time or it is no longer valid

island8tor (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:47 PM)
Thanks Scott!!

DarthG8R (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:53 PM)
Hey Scott , how do we look for A. Smith the OL from Bama ??????

DieAGator (Jun 14, 2005 9:49:55 PM)
So they usually are committable offers in writing, correct?

g8orbill (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:00 PM)
what do they consider a reasonable amount of time

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:04 PM)
Darth, he's wide open...

tngatr (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:06 PM)
Scott, do you think Barrie gets a UF offer? How did he do in camp?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:17 PM)
depends on how bad they want him :)

MajorGator (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:18 PM)
Scott do you know anything about Phillip Taylor from MD - I know thats a little out of your area.

gcsgator (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:18 PM)
Scott who do you see UF getting on the OL?

Perdido Key Gator (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:21 PM)
Will it be Mon or Spiller? Which RB do we get?

youmustbegatorBAIT (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:25 PM)
for a ms gator: gators get anyone from here? quartet from olive branch?

wyatt sexton (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:29 PM)
Hi gator fans, from the hospital!

hollywoodbob (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:33 PM)
what are your thoughts on Barrie, Scott?

scottkennedy (Jun 14, 2005 9:50:33 PM)
Major, helluva player... that's all I really know...
