2011 pac 12 football

Lots of recruiting news recently. I'll try to summarize:
-USC offers 5-star WR Treggs who is committed to CAL (soft verbal). Darreus Rogers, a 4-star WR who is a soft verbal to USC is then a no-show at a USC throwing session he was suppose to be at. ASU is going after Rogers.

-UCLA is over thier limit in recruits, they are asking some committed players to grey shirt (won't be on scholly until next year)

-Washington stole one of the top recruits in the nation, Shaq Thompson (Safety) from CAL along with top WR Jordan Payton

-Oregon landed one of the top OTs in the nation in Arik Armstead

-Colorado recruited a 4-star CB that most other schools backed away from after he made repeated dumb ass tweets (Yuri Wright).

-Cal held onto DB Cedric Dozier (4-star recruit)

-ASU loaded up on 8 JUCO recruits
Bump even though it's 2012. I feel like my Utes are going to be pretty damn tough this year. Defense looks great as always. According to Whit. we have about 9 players they say could start in the LB'ing core. Also have Brian Blechan who I hope continues to improve more and more at S. On O we have 2 freshman QB's looking real nice to back up Wynn, Oline is ehhh', but Pac 12's 2nd leading rusher "The Wolf" John White will be returning, and we have great depth at RB. Not to mention the best WR core we have had, well possibly ever.


Playing in the Pac 12 is so much better than MWC! Every game is a challenge and every game fills that stadiums. It's awesome!

Yeah, you guys represented pretty well in your first year.

DT Star Lotulelei is one hell of a player.

He has been held out of practice because no one can block him. Well not held out exactly, but Coach Whit sais it's just pointless for him to be out there because they can't even hand the ball off with-out him being in the back-field. This kid is very exciting.
Way too early list of top PAC-12 players based on draft potential:

1. Matt Barkley, QB, USC - Best QB prospect out of USC since Carson Palmer
2. Star Lotulelei, DT Utah - At 320lbs+ this guy is the real deal, an absoloute terror along the line
3. Robert Woods, WR USC* - Amazing route runner, unbelievable hands, and quickness that breaks defenders ankles
4. Keenan Allen, WR Cal* - probably 6'2, has a terrific combo of size and speed
5. Keith Price, QB Washington* - He stormed onto the scene last year, and he shows every ability to continue to improve into a 1st round caliber QB
6. Chase Thomas, OLB Stanford - projects perfectly as a 3-4 OLB, I had him as a 2nd-3rd rounder if he came out this year and he will probably become a 1st rounder if he continues like he did last year
7. Dion Jordan, DE Oregon - for a 6'5 guy, his quickness is disgusting
8. Wes Horton, DE, USC
9. Khaled Holmes C USC
10. Jordan Poyer, CB Oregon State
11. Joseph Fauria, TE UCLA
12. Nickell Robey, CB, USC*
13. Marquess Wilson, WR Washington State*
14. John Boyett, S Oregon
15. Brandon Magee, OLB ASU

Keenan Allen and Robert Woods will have one heck of a competition going. Both will be juniors next year and will be the top WRs in the nation. Marquess Wilson, even though I have him at #13, isn't too far behind.

I got lazy and stopped writing short descriptions

Edit: fixed error that had Poyer twice, meant for Robey at #12. His size is a huge red flag, but he was the best corner in the PAC-12 league
