While we are coming off of a 2-10 season and obviously lack the cache of Bama, V. Tech, Auburn and the rest of the schools we are competing with for Reader, Kirven, Diggs, Darby etc, the one thing we do have going for us as a draw to recruits is playing time (and lots of it). I am glad to hear that aspect is not lost on potential recruits as well, as I saw that ESPN Insider had a blurb on Kirven's OV to Bama and he had this to say "The facility and the campus are just beautiful," Kirven tells ESPN.com recruiting expert Dave Hooker. "It's a beautiful place."
Kirven is also interested in Virginia Tech and Tennessee, but the favorite at this point may be the Maryland Terrapins. "If I went there I could contribute real early," Kirven said.
Also, Clemson's hire of Venables has them in the running for Darby now; whose list now reads as FSU, Auburn, N. Dame and Clemson. Darby had a visit with Locks on Thursday of last week. LSU is making a push but hasn't offered him yet.
Hopefully we are able to lock up Kirven or Reader (or both) as we desperately need depth there. Its looking less likely that any of Diggs, Darby (Goldman ship has sailed) are possibilities at this point?
