Big East school-by-school
Program Commits Top Player Grade

29 QB Bennie Coney B- The class is very solid and brings in plenty of skill position talent on both sides of the ball but they missed out on speedy scat back Dennis Norfleet at the last minute to Michigan

25 QB Casey Cochran C There's not a whole lot to remark on the Huskies class other than they added a strong-armed but small quarterback in Cochran and a little bit of speed at wide out.

24 LB Nick Dawson B+ The trio of top linebackers Charlie Strong grabbed are the headliners but don't sleep on the depth that both lines will have.

16 RB Rushel Shell B+ Keeping the big time offensive guys in the fold after the coaching staff change is a huge win for Paul Chryst. Landing a local LB like Deaysean Rippy is an added bonus for a small class.

20 DE Darius Hamilton A One of the big surprises on Signing Day was the ability of Kyle Flood and his staff to keep the class intact after Greg Schiano left. Not only that, they are bringing in impact players from a talented crop of local athletes.

19 TE Sean Price B There were three elite guys in this class that bigger programs coveted but the staff kept in the fold. Chris Bivins and Sean Price could play early and often for the Bulls.

23 TE Ron Thompson C- There's really not much to say other than the Orange didn't capitalize on their good season a year ago and turn that into recruiting success.

27 WR Deontay McManus B The coaching staff is really happy with this group and you can see why when you look up and down to see speed among the skill position players and a talented QB. McManus should have an impact early if he can learn the playbook.

Big East Signing Day Grades

Like you guys said about WVU, the coaches really seem to like this class. I think McManus, on tape, looks like he has the ability to bring a lot of the things Stedman Bailey brings the Mountaineers and Ford Childress (who is already on campus) looks like he could end up being the real deal once Geno Smith leaves. I think they brought a few solid defensive prospects in as well. Really excited to see what this class can do in the future.
