I really hope Mack does not offer Shepard playing time at QB. He needs to be honest with the kid and tell him that if he comes to UT the chances that he snaps at QB are not going to be good. Russell needs to come to Michigan.

Gilbert is a pro style qb, so im not exactly the happiest about picking him up...If he isnt a threat to run we might as well take out the zone read option, I liked what I saw from him but in our offense I always prefer guys who have athleticism to make plays, let me see how John Chiles can throw the ball before we ruin his career on the bench, otherwise he needs to be moved to rb or db...

But the class is starting off on the right foot, we would need a few big classes to pass up OU.

I have been impressed with Chiles and think he will be the guy after colt, there are a lot of WRs coming in this year and another committ for 09 so if chiles cant get them the ball gilbert is a nice option to have

So far Mack just offered him as an ATH. They want him but at what cost will they go to get him. The kid is unreal on film and is a definite Top 5 player in the 2009 class. I have heard that GG had a tremendous playoff this past year and said he has become a legend because of it. What happend? The kid is good but Shepard is on another level. The dude looks like Mike Vick without killing dogs and all.

Shepard loves Texas, and he said he'd be willing to play another position if they asked him to. However, he also really loves Rich Rodriguez and believes he can be the QB at Michigan from day one.

Here is an exciting article:

I would say Texas is still up there, but Michigan is really at the top of my list, especially if they dont get Terrelle Pryor, he told the paper. I feel like I could go there and play right away. Im also looking at Florida and LSU. Both of those schools have pretty good depth-chart situations for me.

Apparently his Girlfriend goes to LSU so who knows where he will wind up. It seems like a horse race between Mich, and Texas. While LSU is a very distant third.

Mack has generally always said that for the most part, he lets ATH recruits pick the position they want to play to start with, and then they'll move them accordingly if it doesn't or won't pan out. If Shepard commits, it'll probably be him and Gilbert battling for the QB job in the spring after Colt's SR season. Just not sure if I see John Chiles sticking at QB long-term, though I guess he'd have to be in that QB competition when Colt graduated... If Shepard wins the position in the spring, there's his QB job. If he loses, at least he got a chance.

Kid has always said he'd be willing to change positions to play at Texas, so I think right now he's probably still a slight Texas lean. Obviously, it'll hinge pretty heavily on what Terrelle Pryor decides to do.

PL, save yourself the time and heartache. If Shepard isn't a Horn, I'll eat my shoe. I wear a size 17, so you know I am pretty darn confident in that.

The reality of it is, Shepard wants to be a Horn and the Texas coaches know it as well. That is why you normally only see a few select offers go out to Texas kids each year, especially early.

I would of prefered Shephard anyway, but if that is the case Chiles needs to be featured in the offense somewhat because Id hate to see him as a career backup, he probably could of been the qb at A&M after Mcgee, but its no point in taking two 5* qbs in the same class, somebody will end up transferring(javon snead).

I think that's why Shepard isn't a Horn right now. Mack is an honest guy and I don't think he wanted to tell RS that he was going to get an honest shot at QB if he couldn't really give him one.

Mack has had his QB controversy and it is still talked about today, I think that is the one thing he is trying to avoid.

Texas and USC are going to be in a battle to the finish for the top recruiting class, I'd imagine. I just hope that Cierre Wood decides that Notre Dame is a better fit for him than 'SC. :D

Who is the better prospect between Darrell Scott and Chris Whaley?

I've watched some vid of Whaley, and while he does seem to have a pretty good size/speed combo, Scott has that compact build you like in a runningback at essentially the same weight as Whaley.

Scott has better accelleration and lateral quickness, but Whaley is a beast and breaks tackles very well, also has excellent vision...Scott is the better prospect right now for college, that could change for the pros...Whaley is a beast in his own right just a different version...Darrell Scott makes me think Larry Johnson, Whaley reminds me of Brandon Jacobs...

class is coming together nice

#1 qb, #1 wr, #1 rb, #1 safety, all top rated guys inthe state...Love that MAck is getting them together now, helps influence other recruits when they see who is already going...something to look forward to because im not expecting any championships with mccoy...

If you think he's as good as Beanie, you think he's better than Scott. You must.

However, both Scott and Wells are superior prospects to Whaley.
