Weekend Visitors: February 24-26, 2012

Beaver Falls (PA) Blackhawk quarterback Chandler Kincade

Remember last week when a bunch of players gave me carpal tunnel?  Me, too.  But it's not happening again this weekend.

Jack Keeler - OT - Barrington (IL) Barrington:  Keeler is a 6'7", 285 lb. tackle with offers from Northern Illinois, Toledo, West Virginia, and Western Michigan.  He is a good player, but Michigan only plans to take one more offensive lineman.  With some elite kids still on the board, I think it's unlikely that they'll pursue someone with a relatively low profile like Keeler. (Highlights here.)

Chandler Kincade - QB - Beaver Falls (PA) Blackhawk: Chandler is a 6'4", 215-pounder who's currently committed to Pitt for the class of 2014.  He made his pledge back in November before Todd Graham left for Arizona State and a bunch of others headed for Arizona, so he may be thinking of a change of scenery.  His only current offer came from Pitt, which is probably partly because he was injured for much of the 2011 season.  He had just 547 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception in five games.  His highlights are pretty awesome . . . especially since he's a 9th grader in them:

Patrick Kugler - OG - Wexford (PA) North Allegheny:
Kugler is a 6'5", 280 lb. guard prospect with offers from Arizona, Cal, Florida, Florida State, Iowa, Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pitt, Stanford, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, and several others.  He's the #54 overall player to Rivals, although I have yet to see any highlights of him.

Logan Tuley-Tillman - OT - Peoria (IL) Manual: Tuley-Tillman committed to Michigan last weekend.  He's also angry at me for saying "he's not that good right now," despite the fact that I went on to say that he has a chance to be very good once he gets some quality coaching.
I guess TTB Andrew won't be interviewing Mr. Tuley-Tillman anytime soon.


  1. If anyone has a reason to be mad, it's his high school coaches.

  2. Ummm...that Kincade kid looks pretty freaking awesome. He was really only a frosh in HS in those clips?!?

    I just wonder if UM really has a shot at a kid that good what with Morris being just a year ahead of him.

    Oh, and his name: Chandler Kincade just screams BMOC college QB. With a name like that he should probably play for UCLA or USC.

  3. You aren't gonna find many 9th graders that big and mature.

    The De La Salle faithful around here swear that Morris was that far ahead of the pack at that age.

    It's nice to see that they're back to making QBs in Beaver Falls, Pa.

  4. Please don't make any more Michigan recruits mad. K thanks

    1. If you don't like what I have to write, feel free to read other websites.

  5. I had an opportunity to see Kincade play as a freshman when he played against one of the best running backs in the nation Rushell Shell. That night Kincade stole the show. He was only a Freshman and he was a manchild. The conference they play in was ranked one of the top 15 in the country. I would love to see him at Michigan pushing Morris. Two great QB's two years in a row....WOW

  6. I was on the PITT website around the time the Kincaid kid comitted, he is highly recruited, they said on the website that Alabama was high on him as well as PSU, Ohio State, Florida, South Carolina and Nebraska. Unless this kid really doesn't want to leave home I can't imagine he would choose PITT. This would be a great pick up to land 2 top QB's in two years. I googled him and saw where he was the only Freshman invited to the elite 11 in Columbus and scout and rival both had him ranked in the top 8. Beaver Falls produced Joe Willie Namath, maybe another great from Western PA...GO BLUE

  7. I agree that if people don't like what you write then they should go to another site. I read the site off and on during the month and generally like the site despite your sometimes Eeyore point of view. There is something to be said about choice of wording. Saying that a kid is "not that good right now" is negative and can be damaging when we know that recruits cruise these sites. These are 17-18, sometimes 16, year old young men to put out a good/not good label on them having only seen some highlight video is a bit presumptuous. You are entitled to your opinion and should express it, just think about choosing your words a little more wisely.
