On Sept. 15, coaches from NC State, Georgia and Florida State, among others, were on the sidelines at Harding High in Charlotte to watch the Rams host state power and city-rival Mallard Creek High. Mallard Creek would prevail 30-9 over Harding, but the game was closer than that as Harding actually controlled the action for most of the three quarters before a series of turnovers doomed its chances. NC State head coach Dave Doeren and tight ends/fullbacks coach and special teams coordinator Eddie Faulkner were there to watch four-star lineman Jordan Davis from Mallard Creek and four-star junior running back Quavaris Crouch, four-star offensive lineman Jovaughn Gwyn and three-star defensive back Malik Dunlap from Harding, among likely others.

When a head coach leaves a college football team, it has a real effect on recruiting as it leaves the program in a state of uncertainty. The recruits committed to that school are left wondering if the interim coach and his staff will be kept in place or if a new coach will come in and clean house. There's also uncertainty for the staff in place. How do you recruit prospects to a school if you're not even sure that you're going to be there in a couple of months because of the head coaching change? For the Oregon State Beavers, it's just business as usual with Gary Andersen leaving OSU and Cory Hall being his interim
Question: If you had to pick a midseason Big 12 coach of the year, who would you go with? Carlton: In order, I would go: 1. Gary Patterson. 2. Matt Campbell. 3. Kliff Kingsbury. Patterson has rebounded from a 6-7 season to have the nation's fourth-ranked team as we speak. So far, he's corrected the problems on offense with quarterback consistency and red-zone struggles while building the No. 1 defense in the conference. Question: With the teams trending in different directions, could Tech be in danger of losing to the Cyclones? Would that be enough to place Kingsbury back on the hot seat? Carlton: Has hot seat become the most over-used phrase this season? Sure seems like it. Every game is big.
A borderline Rivals four-star wide receiver prospect traveled to Ames last weekend for the second official visit of his recruiting process. South Fort Myers senior Jeshaun Jones said he liked attending a game at Jack Trice Stadium and many other aspects of his official visit. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Jones, a three-star wide receiver with a 5.7 Rivals rating, was taking his second official visit of the process, after traveling to Tennessee last month. He’s also planning a stop at Maryland next month. In addition to those three schools, Jones has Power-5 offers from Arkansas, Florida State, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Carolina, NC State, Rutgers. Virginia Tech and Wisconsin. Freshman wide
Yesterday we looked at the midway superlatives of the Ohio State offense and today we turn our attention to the defense. The Buckeyes through the years have been a team that have made their mark with their defense and this year has seen a lot of good from that side of the ball but not everything has been perfect through 2017. Nobody expected the Buckeyes to give up 31 points to Oklahoma in the second game of the season and through two games, the Buckeyes were 75th nationally in scoring defense and No. 109 in pass efficiency defense. Those numbers have come back down to Earth over the next four weeks with Ohio State ranking No. 16 in total defense, No. 18 against the run, No. 30 in pass efficiency
