Did McEvoy get arrested at USC? There was a problem at Bergen (I think he went there) but hadn't heard of anything recently

Edit: Didn't realize he had left SC for Juco. I thought out of HS he projected more as a WR/TE but he wanted to play QB, as he hadn't played much QB in high school.

Here is what I posted about him back in 2010...

I suspect Daniels will end up being one of the gems on the field for BC, and I wouldn't even be surprised if we see him out there next year (I think either he or Duggan will see PT). I agree with others that Stewart may be a nice fit at SS. In that case he most definitely has a chance to see PT next year. I agree with others that ALJ would be a huge late pull for BC. Other than that I prefer to see us get at least one good S, and some more good O Lineman. RB's and WR's can wait til next year, unless say we can get McEvoy. The depth looks fine to me at those spots.


Im pretty sure McEvoy has stated that he wants to play QB in college and I dont think hes considering BC. I think with the way the freshman receivers were used this year and not redshirted, at least 1 WR in this class should be a consideration (as previously mentioned Juwan Caesar or Bridge)

Anyone else here rumors involving off-the-field activities that Tanner in trouble with local authorities and allegedly almost kicked out of Bergen (i.e. he's lucky he's the star of their FB team)???


Alright, I'll say it. He was arrested for allegedly selling weed about a month ago (as you clearly know), per a bunch of message board posts I've read. To be fair to him...I haven't seen it mentioned by any legitimate media source. Based on this (assuming it's true), I figure he's bound for North Carolina or South Carolina (most likely the latter). Would Rutgers even take him at this point?

The kid is a stud athlete. He is not a QB. RU would take him in a heartbeat. That is inline with the rumor I heard. But, I heard if more from the HS implications side. The rumor I heard was that the school decided to kick him out. I heard that the parents went ballistic and threatened to sue (went as far as hiring an attorney) and the school acquiesced. Don't know the validity of it as it came from Bosco sources.

Sounds like Frye will be recruiting IL & Indiana; Fitch Florida; Albert NY & NJ; and McGovern is back in NJ.

I am pretty damn sure that Fitch is our Ohio recruiter. In the article in some random Ohio paper which announced his hiring, it said that Fitch was in town visiting with Monteroso.

Michael Parker won't let the NCAA recruiting calendar force his decision.

The ESPN 300 prospect said he won't announce any decision or sign with a school on national signing day. He'll visit his two finalists, Miami and Arizona State, in late March, meaning a decision might not come until April or later.


Michael Parker
Athlete
2013
Uncommitted: List

Pos RkStarsGradeHometown
26
83Nokesville, VA
"Yeah, I'm probably going to wait until after then," Parker said, referring to national signing day on Feb. 6. "I just want some time to make sure. It's the biggest decision in my life. I want to make sure it's the right decision."

At least one school, Boston College, pulled itself out of the chase for Parker when he informed coaches there that he was postponing his decision past February. Miami has expressed concern about the delay but said it will work with the four-star athlete. Clearly, the Hurricanes have made Parker feel wanted in Coral Cables.

"They show great love when I go down there," Parker said. "They're really high on your career after college and after football if football doesn't work out."

Waiting until after signing day should give Parker a bit more time to see if Miami will face severe NCAA sanctions. The Canes are involved in allegations that a booster provided extra benefits to athletes.

"The sanctions play a role in my decision making," said Parker, the No. 234 prospect in the country and No. 10 prospect in Virginia. "But they show so much love I can't even look at that. ... The sanctions aren't a huge factor in my decision, but I do think about it."

Parker's other finalist, Arizona State, also has made him feel wanted despite the fact that Tempe, Ariz., is two time zones away.

"They're great," Parker said. "Me and my recruiter, we talk probably every other day. We just keep up with each other. We're building a strong relationship. They're definitely competing with Miami. They play some tough football. That's what I like about them."

Parker also likes the fact that the Sun Devils need immediate help in the defensive backfield, where he is expected to play in college. He said he also likes the idea of helping rebuild the program.

Parker transferred from Nokesville (Va.) Kettle Run and is currently home schooled. He said he will transfer to Warrenton (Va.) Fauquier in a few weeks.

While we can't exactly be turning away top prospects under any conditions, that is a very ridiculous thing this guy is doing. Everyone else decides by signing day, why is he special?

Parker has grade issues it would be a surprise if he qualifies. A lot of schools cooled months ago on him because of it.

If I recall correctly, it is a major benefit to the student-athlete to NOT sign on LOI day. If I recall correctly, by waiting, he can sign something that binds the school but not him. So, if a coach was to suddently leave after LOI Day, he would be one of the few who could ditch the program without penalty. Then again... I could be getting this confused with BB.

From 247...

Michael Julian, QB, Hilton Head (SC)

The three-star prospect has seen his recruitment take off in recent weeks as he's received offers from Boston College, Wisconsin, N.C. State and more. Those three schools make up his top three at the moment and he plans to visit Wisconsin next weekend before making a decision.

Commit Odds: LOW Right now, I'd argue that Wisconsin is his leader. Julian was leaning toward Utah State when Gary Andersen was there, and now that he's the head man for the Badgers, the B1G school is in good position.

Rapheal Webb, RB, Gainesville (FL)

Boston College moved into his top group of schools after an offer from Addazio and company came his way last month. Vanderbilt, South Florida and Minnesota round out his top four. The 247Composite three-star visited Florida Atlantic last weekend and plans to visit Minnesota next Saturday.

Commit Odds: MEDIUM If you had asked me a week ago, I would have put this at hot.... scorching hot. However, earlier this week he received an offer from South Florida - his first big time offer close to home. He has plenty of connections with the Bulls and Willie Taggart is a known recruiting shark around central Florida. However, Addazio may push for a commitment from him while he's in town, because....

Silas Spearman, RB, Seminole Ridge (FL)

Spearman was being recruited by Don Brown while the defensive coordinator was at Connecticut. Now that he's at Boston College, the Eagles have expressed a serious interested and extended an invite for this weekend. According to Spearman, they also made it clear that there was a good chance he would receive an offer if he came.

Commit Odds: HIGH From the outside looking in, it seems that the plan is to push Webb for a commitment and, if not, then extend one to Spearman. They may even take both. However, I imagine an offer is likely to come and if it does, I expect Spearman to commit on the trip or shortly after.

Damon Mitchell, ATH, Egg Harbor Township (NJ)

The "surprise" visitor for the weekend is the current Georgia Tech commit that can play both quarterback and safety. He was recruited by Addazio to Temple to play quarterback, but Mitchell was interested in playing at a higher level. Now that Addazio is at Boston College, the recruitment has begun again in earnest.

Commit Odds: MEDIUM It's hard to list someone as "high" when they are currently committed elsewhere, but Mitchell is skeptical about the triple option offense and Addazio is selling him on the Tim Tebow style spread offense that he would flourish in.

Just a thought.... anyway we could get a thread that only lists committed players? Just something for everyone to refer to. It might make it easier for people to get acquainted with the incoming players which could enhance educated commentary ?

It think that's because the original five visitors turned out to only be 3 and that the "state of the program" hasn't improved considerably since Spazoo was fired.

That said, Julian did make it to campus.

Do you know that Mitchell didn't go or are you just cherry picking worst possible situations? Because while I saw that Dunn was not going, I saw that Mitchell might not be going, Julian might not be going (apparently he did per your post), McEvoy was going, Spearman was going and Webb was going, which is either 4 or 5.

I meant that the state of the program is such that it has no supporters, no one gives a shit, therefore EA doesn't even bother covering what is arguably the most important recruiting weekend of the last year.

Damon Mitchell confirmed with GTech based on an in-home he had on Thursday with Paul Johnson (who told him if he takes any more visits they'll look for a new QB and not wait of him). I assume that means he wasn't coming.

I didn't realize we had McEvoy on campus. He's a real talent, but they better do their due diligence on his background. What are we recruiting him as?

McEvoy would be a huge get... I assume he no longer has a redshirt year.

sell him on playing WR this year and getting a crack at QB the following year after Chase leaves... he's a definite athlete and i'm sure Daziani could find somewhere to play him during 2013.

I saw the Mitchell twitter stuff but then the ea guy said he thought he was coming. Although maybe he said it before the Johnson in home.

I am not sure whether mcevoy is there but read something to that effect.

Tanner McEvoy, in my opinion, is an Aaron Hernandez type tight end. Could he play QB or WR? Possibly. But, his value is only off-the-charts at TE. All that said... this is based upon my impressions from High School. A lot may have changed.

If Mitchell came AFTER the GT ultimatum, you have to think our chances increases dramatically.

Watching his JUCO tape his athleticism jumps off the screen at you. He has a big arm but has an ugly throwing motion serious mechanic work would be needed. But you take that type of athlete every day if it doesn't work at QB you move him to TE or WR.
