On The Recruiting Trail: January 10th

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Less than a month away from National Signing Day, things are starting to heat up again,

After a slow winter break, the recruiting is starting to heat up again for the Frogs as they offered two big ones from the 2014 class this week...

Shay Fields JR

Position: WR

Height/Weight: 5-11, 160

High School: Saint John Boscoe (Bellflower, CA)

Twitter: @shaysosa1

Ratings: 

· ESPN: 3 Star, 76 grade

· Rivals: 4 Star

· 247 Sports: 4 Star

Also considering: USC

The Highlight Tape:

Report: Fields is another one of those guys who you look at think, "that guy’s a perfect Frog". Granted, we may say that about a lot high-profile 4 and  5-star recruits, but Fields really has the Patterson-era grittiness we’ve all come to know and love.

Fields is an excellent route runner who pushes hard off the line and forces defenders to work. He also has superb agility, elusiveness and his vision makes him a dangerous big-play threat. Oh yeah, he also plays a little defense (defensive back) and is a great kick-returner.

But what impresses me the most with Fields, especially given his skill-set, is that’s he’s noted for toughness. Rarely does every recruiting medium make note of that. I’m not trying to go full Woody Hayes, but these are the kinds of guys that thrive under Patterson. I think we’re ready for another shifty slot receiver who isn’t afraid to make plays…even if it means taking the big hit.

Lorenzo Joe

Position: Wide Receiver

Height/Weight: 6-2, 192

High School: Abilene Cooper

Twitter: @LoJoe12

Also considering: Texas

Ratings:

· ESPN: 4 Star, 82 Grade, 238th overall

· Rivals: 4 Star

· 247 Sports: 4 Star

The Highlight Tape:

Overview: In addition to having a name that’s worthy of Quentin Tarantino movie, Lorenzo Joe is a productive playmaker that’s efficient in both the slot and the outside. His versatility also makes him a very dangerous big play threat.


And for putting Tech above TCU in the Power Rankings, here’s a reminder of where we didn’t go to school.
