    The annual my 3*** recruit is better than your 3*** recruit thread. Why I love the FCS, it is settled in Frisco every year.

    I've always used the excuse stars don't matter at Furman… but I have to admit for a long while there, we had gaps in talent compared to some in the SoCon and the elite of FCS.

    Wofford-Samford-Chatty all raised the talent bar in the SoCon — I'm sure most of our SoCon friends would say they never feared Furman's speed or physical presence. I'll even throw Mercer and WCU into the mix. Those five teams are very athletic.

    It's one thing to say we need to get bigger, stronger, faster it's a whole other thing actually to make it happen. Stars or no stars Veneziale and Miller (a 3 star and a zero star) fit the motto… bigger, stronger, faster. What I love about these Furman pickups is they play against the toughest competition in their homes states at the highest classification.

    At the FCS level a better indicator of the caliber of a recruit, IMO at least, is the number of offers he has and the schools they came from. It seems like all the recruiting services do to give a recruit a star rating is to see who he is offered by. Offered by Bama, Ohio St, and USC? Well 5 stars then. Offered by Auburn, Tennessee, and Oklahoma St? 4 stars. Offered by Rice, Cincinnati, and Tulsa? 3 stars. And so on...

    When I see NDSU pick up a commit who's got multiple FBS offers along with offers from many of our regional rivals like SDSU, UNI, etc I get excited because that tells me that this kid was sought after by many different coaching staffs. I'll always take the consensus opinions of a group of coaching staffs at different schools that all scouted a guy and decided to offer him over what a recruiting service says when it comes to rating FCS caliber recruits.

    Totally agree… Furman commits Jumper and Veneziale I believe have 29 and 25 offers each. You're also spot on about stars related to who is offering. Jumper a 2 star - GaSt, GSU, MTSU, APP, Marsha, Tulane, Army, Rutgers, KentSt, Coastal, Charlotte. Veneziable a 3 star - AFA, Army, APP, ArkSt, Buffalo, Charlotte, FAI, GSU, GaSt, KentSt, Marsha, MTSU, Navy, Ohio, SoAla, Troy, WesternMI.

    All good my man.

    This area is basically for tracking those that are not yet here and those that have left our FCS ranks to go to the Pros...their journey's in and out of FCS.

    Furman continues to build an impressive list of defensive commits for 2019. Five total commits — four on defense.

    Austin Jones - 5-11 190 S | Rabun County, GA - 11 offers (Army, AFA, JMU, Citadel, Elon, Kennesaw, Wofford, Mercer, TTU, WCU)
    http://www.hudl.com/video/3/5616371/...51803454366b94

    Bryce McCormick - 6-3 215 LB/TE | CPA Nashville, TN - 3 Star - 15 offers (AFA, Austin Peay, Richmond, Mercer, Chatty, Citadel, EKU, Georgetown, GaSt, Lehigh, IndSt, SIU, TTU, UTM)
    http://www.hudl.com/v/27wPNC

    You have to give Clay Hendrix and the Furman staff credit for quickly making Furman a hot ticket in FCS recruiting (especially in the southeast). I thought having over 200 juniors show up for junior day was an anomaly. Now I think its a trend. Furman went head to head against JMU on Veneziale and Jones, Furman went head to head against Wofford on Jumper, Miller, and Jones. In the end — Furman beat out Army and AFA on several of these commits.

    I still think Furman needs some big gets with the offensive skill positions…
