    George Kittle out of Norman , Oklahoma has been offered by Air Force. Hes got low 4.5 speed and can jump as a lot of guys can this year.

    Great job guys as usual.Always looking for the speed merchants. MattHarper I cannot find Nick England on facebook can you help me out here? I need more verification before I slot him into the white category. I did see a white pic on rivals or something but not sure it was him--no name was listed below.

    Stoops [​IMG] is recruiting him as a TE. Surprise, surprise. At 6'4" and 205 he's going to have to eat like a pig, and fast, to gain 40 lbs of "good weight" to play as a TE...that may take a couple of years. I hope he goes to Air Force and plays WR. This is another example of a White player that must understand that a caste system exists and make the right choice, in this case, Air Force.

    Thanks for the info Highlander. I just wanted to say watching reciever Connor Crane is unreal. This kid is a monster. They say he has 4.5 speed but he looks like a legit low 4.4 guy. Hes very smooth and I swear he reminds me of Randy Moss. This Frank Entitropolous is another monster. Good to see Ohio State snatching him up.<div>I did a little research on recruiting last year and only 37 white wide receivers were signed to D 1 scholarships. This may be a bold prediction but Im going to say we get over 90 in the class of 2012 and I can count at least 35 of these guys have legit 4.4 speed or better. Maybe the caste system will finally break as with the renaissance of the white wr in the NFL. With a little luck I could see over 40 whites at wr on NFL rosters this year.</div><div></div>

    I'm glad Minnesota has a new coach. I think he'll end up being more White-friendly than the disastrous Tim Brewster (good riddance). Only time will tell, but this is a good sign.

    Adam Boyd a wr out of mcalister Oklahoma with 4.5 speed has been offered by Tulsa. I have a friend Herb Hand who is a recruiter on the team and the consensus of the way the coaches feel is that Tulsa needs to recruit athletes but student athletes who are also good character guys. Tulsa recruited 2 white receivers last year along with rb Zack Langer. They have a white corner on the 2 deep. They have Roberson starting at wr who is a NFL prospect and they are about to offer 4.37 rb Andrew Long from Norman Ok. . Outside of Rice and BYU I am starting to really like this team.

    Michael Burke out of Columbia, PA has received offers from BYU and West Virginia. He was in Scouts top 100 receivers a few months ago but now is no longer there. His youtube tape dosent impress me but hes very good in the air but he only looks to have mid 4.6 speed. He was at a recent football camp where he received raves from every coach so maybe hes better than his tapes show.

    Garrett Dinicola is a 6'2" wr out of Mannsville, Louisiana. He runs a 4.4 forty and has a 35 inch vertical. This kids a legit deep threat. He has unbeleivable separation quickness. Hes going to wind up at Louisiana Tech. or Middle Tennessee State. I guarantee this kid will average over 19 yards a catch whomever he plays for.

    Lynx Hawthorne out of Weimar, Texas has accepted an offer from Baylor. He projects as a wr but he is one hell of a wildcat QB. He reminds me of Eric Crouch in his running ability. He also has that Sam McGuffie anticipation to change direction before tacklers from 10 feet out can take an angle on him. Hes been timed at 4.40 in the forty but he looks like a 4.55 guy but I cant find anything on him playing outside where his straight line speed might be better observed.

    Bump for update. Mattharper, thanks for all the updates you've been finding. I haven't put everybody on my commit and offer list, because in some cases they aren't showing up on rivals or scout as having been offered or committed. Guessing there is a time lag on some of these lesser known white wide receivers.
    Interesting that Scarcelli took the offer from Western Michigan, instead of waiting to see if a higher level school took him. In general it seems that the higher profile schools get the first commits and then the MAC, Conference USA, WAC, etc get their commits later.
    Found another MAC commit, Jordan Italiano, to Kent St., who played QB and safety in high school but listed as WR for college.Edited by: referendum

    Good find on Italiano Referendum. I find some off the offers on Facebook. Im still trying to find Gavin McHenrys offer from Utah but Scout and Rivals havent put it out. Im just trying to get some guys out there noticed though they havent been offered. i try to be honest when I evaluate players. Like when Tulsa recruit Zack Langer gets an offer and i saw his tape I wasnt impressed but that dosent mean he cant play. Ive watched Garrett Dinicola play and he is a superb receiver. We all know why a lot of these guys dont get offered but this is the first time in 23 years of following the sport there just seems to be a ton of our guys getting early offers. Ive never seen so many 4.4 guys at the receiver spot and we have 7 or 8 rbs with 4.3 speed listed. Long, Muncrief, Salem, Regan, Hong, Knauf , and Grove among some. Look at our 4.3 and 4.4 runners that got screwed in Jabloski, Mauro and Napp. Im just hopeful things are changing for the better with all of this early interest in our guys.

    Thanks jack Lambert. I could spend a month doing safety reviews. I think there has to be about 14 safeties already signed for 2012 with about 120 more on the way. There is a 3 star safety named Riley Bullough out of Traverse City Michigan who signed with Michigan State and I read somewhere they were thinking of trying him at corner first. weird. Michigan State signed TJ fine out of Missouri for corner but rivals wont print it. I got it off the kids wall on his facebook account. I wish I knew how to cut and paste so i could add video to these guys. You will just have to take my word for it.

    Another update, WR Mike McHugh out of Kirkwood Missouri, has committed to Northwestern. He has 4.45 speed. Nice to see the Wildcats still getting white WRs.

    Joe Hansley a running back out of Highlands Ranch, Colorado has offers from Wyoming and Colorado State asa wide reciever. Hes only 5'10" and 170 pounds but hes got legit 4.5 speed and this guy is going to be dangerous after the catch. Expect him to play in the slot.

    Nathan Varady a 6'1" 175 lb. wide receiver prospect out of Fayetville Arkansas currently was timed the fastest in a Bobby Petrino football camp. Hes run a 4.41 forty and has a scorching 4.03 pro shuttle. He is looking mostly at Ivy League school as the kid is very smart. Hes looking at Stanford as well and I hope thats where he winds up.

    Conner Crane, the WR from Denton, Texas, has committed to play for Stanford. He's 6-4, and still runs a 4.5.

    He had over ten offers, including Iowa, Boise State, Oregon, Purdue, Colorado, and Minnesota.

    #79 Connor Crane....Stanford
    #98 Dylan Collie...BYU

    Mike Burke is listed twice on scout. 1 as the number 100 3 start recruit and then later as a 2 star recruit. Connor Crane is going to be an early 2nd round pick , mark my words and we will have over 90 scholarship offers for wr this year. 27 already have D1 offers and super recruit Hayden Jones WILL get a Florida offer. If Florida receiver Travis McGriff can be a 3rd round pick a decade ago Jones will get an offer.

    Also we have super wr recruits like Charlie Hegudus, Austin Sheehan, Fudge Van Hooser, Trevor Cain, Garret Dinicola, Peyton Williams among a few who can flat out fly.
