How does Marve fit in to the scheme Gundy runs at Okie State? He seems like a pretty good athlete to me, but I'm not recalling his accuracy/arm strength. I know OSU isn't a real vertical team, but isn't Marve more of a runner than thrower?

According to college scouts he has great arm strength and great quick release. He does run, but he was a great passer as well in high school and scouts projected him as a very good passer in college. He threw for over 4,300 yards his senior year in high school, which broke Tebow's record, but Aaron Murray (UGA Commit and kid who followed Marve after he left Plant HS) broke that record. He supposedly has all the physical tools to play in that system. Mentally no one is sure.

-- as an aside, I talked with some of my friends that either played against him in HS or are close with guys who did (we all played each other in HS here in Tampa) and they all said he survived in high school on his athleticism and they didn't think he could handle college when everyone else was good as well. Not sure if this will be true, but I haven't seen anything to show me different yet.

FL has 5 Star CB Greg Reid visiting this weekend. He was committed to UF and then decommitted after the under armor game. He had a great visit at FSU next week and he is going to visit UGA next weekend. He really wants to start right away apparently and when he saw Haden and Jenkins he knew he wouldn't start over either, so that is why he decommitted and is looking around.

Shame, I'd heard he was transferring and thought he might end up back at Florida, since he almost committed there a few years back before he decided UF already had too many WR recruits (only to have two of those recruits change their mind on signing day and end up elsewhere).

USC gets Kennard:

In front of friends, family and a swarm of media, Phoenix (Ariz.) five-star defensive end Devon Kennard made his commitment to USC public Tuesday morning from Desert Vista High School.

Becoming the fifth five-star commitment for the Trojans in the 2009 class, Kennard called Tuesday's announcement the toughest decision of his life.

Miami is going to be hoping Brown doesn't change his mind. For those that don't know, Brown is the top Player in this class if you look at Rivals. The guy is a beast at RB and has been solid Miami for most of his recruiting, but now it seems he may not be fully committed.

Watching battles among schools for the top high school prospects is never boring. But watching the battles among schools for the remaining players with little more than a week left until National Signing Day can be downright fascinating.

Six of the nation's top 10 prospects remain up for grabs, and the jockeying, scrambling and final pushes before the dead period is in full swing. A minute doesn't go by where there's a rumor started about where some of the top players in the nation will end up.

At the top of the speculation list is the nation's No. 1 player, running back Bryce Brown of Wichita (Kan.) East. Brown remains committed to Miami, but he currently is with his uncle on vacation in Nebraska until Feb. 7. There has been rampant speculation that Brown will take an official visit to Auburn this weekend, but neither Brown nor his mentor Brian Butler have confirmed the visit.

Sounds like a pretty crappy vacation. :-b
