Title: 2018 Commitments
Post by: Campi47 on July 11, 2017, 09:16:32 pm
I know we are still 2 months away from the start of the 2017 season but today SBU got it's first 2018 verbal commitment when Ty'Son Lawton a 5'10 175 pound RB out of Curtis HS in Staten Island and considered on of the RB's in NY committed today

My son is considering attending the football camp on Monday, July 24th (6pm to 9pm) ....

I contacted Cody Fisher to get a list of other colleges that may have representatives at the camp, but so far I have yet to hear back.

Any insights as to what colleges may attend aside from SBU?

Thanks in advance ...

SBU got another 2018 commitment yesterday when Tottenville's Chris Campbell a 6'1 195 OLB who has great speed can cover receivers in the flat and is a sure tackler this is the 2nd player from Staten Island to commit this week

Saturday July 22 is SU's 7 on 7 passing tournament and also they will have 22.23 and 24 as their final one day prospect camps so there will be many future Sea Wolves in attendance as they have many players from NY, PA, NJ, CT, VA and MD areas

The #1 RB prospect from LI Dylan Laube out of Westhampton Beach HS has committed to University of New Hampshire. The only way SBU will keep the best LI players home is by winning.

Sometimes kids use college as a way to get away from their parents and go somewhere new so I can understand that piece. Still, it sucks to be losing kids from right out of your backyard....

What do you guys think it would take for Heilbron to give Coach P the boot early? 1-10? 0-11??

If SB goes winless or wins a couple of games this year then maybe, he gets the boot. His contract runs through 2018 so 2 more years of him being our head coach is probably a reality.

Priore was influential in bringing Heilbron on board when he got hired. I find it very hard to believe Heilbron would fire coach P regardless if we ever win another game before his contract expires. There is a very strong chance P contract does not get extended, but to fire him before the end is unlikely.

I dont know if you listened to any of the coaches from the CAA talk yesterday at the media day, but i did.. All the other coaches sounded great talking about this upcoming season and a lot were praising the QB.. Coach P really didnt have anything to say about the QB situation. As if he knows we are in trouble this year.. I didnt get a good feeling when he was done talking. He really doesnt have much to say in press conference and I feel like he doesnt want to talk or be bothered with. Coach P is definitely no coach Swinney or Saban in interviews!!!!

Camp is this commitment confirmed?  Todays kids are pretty fast to paste this stuff all over the internet and there is no word of it anywhere.  Thanks!!

Coach P wants to be taken very lightly this season but don't let that press conference fool you from yesterday for one the SBU defensive coaches feel the defense might be better than last year though they will still miss Lyle's play calling very much and the QB Coach feels that Carbone has really improved however he has to show it on field and be more consistent Fields still slings the ball but is working very hard on coming over the top

SBU has to win this year or I believe there will be a Coaching shake up

There were slightly over 500 prospects at the 5 one day camps and according to the Coaching Staff there were probably around 50 players who could either be scholarship or walk-on recruits

I know I'm in the minority but I believe that they can go 7-4 this year as the only non winnable game is South Florida all the rest can go either way

Albany can move the ball on the ground and in the air.  This is  something  we have yet to accomplish in the last few years .  This QB struggle of ours will be our downfall again I'm afraid.
Title: Re: 2018 Commitments
Post by: VA_Seawolf on July 26, 2017, 11:30:22 pm
Campi, if we finish 7-4 I'll go eat a shoe. 7-4 would have gotten us into the playoffs last year. Seven games in this conference will get you into the conversation. Albany was the first team left OUT of last year's playoffs. With our wins though we would have gotten in with that record.

Albany may be trending up right now, but once we're good again, they'll be an after thought. Our location gives us an edge over the other two SUNY programs (Buffalo has done a whole lot of nothing despite being in D1-A/FBS for the past 30 years).

I am the first guy on this board who would be jumping up and down if SB goes 7-4 this year, but i dont see that happening. There are too many unanswered questions and we still dont have a QB and we dont know what the DC can do... As you are aware of Campi, no QB means offense can't score and the defense will be out on the field for most of the game.. I am tired of three and out or third and long......

Well, as usual, it looks like whatever problems SBU football might have over the next several years, it's not likely to be at RB. The video I saw about a week ago on '18 commit Ty Son Lawton had me totally impressed with quickness, elusiveness and speed.  Well, hold onto your hat, the Seawolves just got a commitment from another '18 RB.  Take a look at this video of Rahsul Faison!!  This guy might even be better than the other one!!

I heard he received offers from Hofstra and St. John's.

The overview of the first week from Coach P was quite disturbing - he will never change his love for the running game.  I know this season, he doesn't have much choice, but he is definitely set in his ways.  Those recruiting interviews with QBs must be cringe worthy.

Hofstra and St. John's don't have football. I spoke with the Lehman Coach just now and he told me he had 3 offers from FCS Schools however because August 01 was the first day players could receive written offers Stony Brook was the first to send their offer in and the kid pulled the trigger immediately.

Coach P. is never going to give up the running game however he is definitely going to throw the ball a lot move this year then ever before

That makes me a little nervous that he pulled the trigger so quickly..

If this kid is that good, he most likely will have more Div1 offers making it more likely he ditches SB. Let's keep the faith tho..

Lets get real here, this is likely what's going to happen. He has another season left and you never know whose radar he may pop up on. P5 kids tend to get P5 offers and that holds true for the G5 and FCS prospects. The real test will come if/when he gets offers from regional G5 teams. If a UConn or Temple caliber program offers him then I'm certain he'll de-commit, but if he winds up with offers from schools like Umass, Buffalo, or Ohio and sticks with us, it'll say a lot about our program. We may keep him if he gets those offers.

Not like it will matter really. We'll always be a run first team as long as Coach P is at the helm, which isn't a bad thing. We just need a game manager QB back there who isn't terrible.

Notwithstanding the vast improvement shown by Joe Carbone this season, I know that many of you have been moaning and groaning about the lack of SBU's ability to recruit a first class QB for the future to match up with with some of the other CAA QB stars.  Well, I do believe that Coach P. and his staff may have finally done just that!!

The Seawolves have just received a commitment from '18 QB Joshua Zamot out of Holy Spirit HS in Southern NJ.  From what I've seen, he looks like the real deal and he has been  highly touted for his talent.

I'd hate to be a downer, but we've had great starts in past seasons. We were something like 5-2 last year with a perfect record in conference and then had an epic meltdown to finish 5-6. Let's at least win six games. Our program has been near the top of FCS for a while (top 25 recruiting, ranked most years), but we've got to clear five wins. There's no reason we shouldn't either be IN the playoffs or the first team out every year.

Personally I agree having watched both their highlight tapes, but that's against HS competition. In a QB competition, it would be decided in practice. These are good problems to have though. Going from struggling to find a QB, to potentially having two good ones duke it out in camp.

I feel like Coach P would gravitate towards Sanchez since he's the big body pocket passer, and they could as was mentioned move Zamot to another position. Then again, I see Carbone running the option now and keeping it so I'm not entirely sure that's true anymore. They both throw the ball well ,but Zamot is way more athletic. Sanchez looks like Cam Newton compared to these HS players going on size.

Assuming they both stay committed and both remain QBs, I can see both being red-shirted next year (this will happen regardless barring an injury), and then having an open QB competition in 2019 between Fields, and these two. Injuries happen in football and I'd be more comfortable having good depth across the board. It looks like that's what we're building here. The QB position is his if Carbone keeps playing like this.

Just today Jaylin Stover a really good DB out of Washington DC committed

As far as Long Island players the SBU Coaches have visited at least a dozen players as of now the status if any will come here we will have to wait and see. The one player I want them to get is Danny Carroll of Sachem East who was the lineman of the year in Suffolk County and the top defensive player in Suffolk County it's my understanding that we have a real good shot of getting him.

Campi. What is your opinion of this new early signing? I like it. I think it could actually start to level the playing field with better recruits signing with FCS school. Athletes, who have multiple offers dont like to be sitting in the dark waiting for their top pick to come calling only to be over look becasue of a last minute recruit signing ahead.. By signing early, they are guaranteed to be in a school of their choice instead of being overlooked

Another thing I look at when SB signs an athlete is if he or she are getting  multiple offers.. For example.. Carbone had 0 offers coming out of high school... That should be a red flag.. I know it is not easy pulling athletes away from bigger schools, but in order to be competitive, you must

Probably because of our recruiting tactic of signing out of state kids then making local kids "walk-on." As long as we have a solid class at the end of the day I'm fine with it. We were I think 20th in the FCS last year which could be better, but is still really good. We already have the talent to compete with anyone. Hopefully these QB commits pan out as that's the position where we've had a very hard time getting and developing talent.

The 11 players that will sign today were on a lot of FBS schools radar especially as preferred walk-ons so now they can concentrate od other players for the February 07 signing day

This early group of signees included many very good skill position guys so I'm very happy

As far as LI players expect about 8 preferred walk-ons and maybe 2 scholarship kids in February

Totally agree with the QB issue. I have a huge issue with the "Walk-on" crap with our local kids! You have no idea how that pisses me off especially when my boy plays Varsity football and he hears other high school athletes talking bad about SB policy, tactis or whatever they call it..

Here is the problem with the LI HS Football players from an SBU stand point from February through July every year is the evaluation period and when the LI players go up against the City kids and out of state kids they don't grade out well weather it be their HT, Speed, Competitiveness, ETC or they don't do any camps at all so the player has got to do a better job. Until other CAA schools or FBS schools offer these kids SBU is going to continue to not offer a scholarship but rather ask them to walk-on that's is the reality of recruiting on LI. By the way having said this there will probably be around 6-12 players who will get money from FCS/FBS schools for the 2018 Class so players on LI have a choice walk on at SBU or another FCS school or go DII and maybe get some money

I've heard coaches want to see high light reels because they want to see what the player is capable of. After that they'll have the players send some actual game tape.

Post by: Chrissy D. on December 21, 2017, 11:40:18 am
I have mentioned this before. Using preferred walk-ons is a tool used by all schools. It allows you to bring in a bigger class without counting against your scholly limit. The reason that local kids are brought in as preferred walk-ons is that they qualify for state money ( grants, aid, etc ). A preferred walk on can be givenba scholly at anytime but they will usually earn them after their second yr in the program. If they are offered the scholly before the 2nd yr is up then that will count against the scholarship limit from the original class yr. Some preferred walk ons qualify for full financial aid. This is not a bad thing. This is how Liotine earned a scholarship.

Just to add to this. SB offers top LI and in state players scholarships, examples Bedell, Gowins, Haggert. Its up to the player to except. Dalton Crossan was offered a full but chose UNH instead. It worked out pretty well for him. U just cant control that.

I don't have any inside information or special knowledge, but I think it's important to note that both Jordan Gowins and Donald Liotine will be back next season.  So, I think it would take a very unusual happenstance to unseat them as the primary running RBs.  It is worth noting, however, that based upon video I've seen there are a couple of real studs coming in as freshman (Ty'son Lawton and Rahsul Faison)

QB is going to be the really interesting one to watch.  Obviously, Carbone will start out as Coach P's choice.  But, in addition to Tyquell Fields, who still hasn't had a real opportunity to show his wears, the two freshman coming in (Josh Zamot and Danny Sanchez) are probably going to make the Seawolves the deepest they've ever been at that po0sition.  After watching the FBS semi-final and championship games this year, nobody's going to convince me that being a freshman precludes being an excellent QB.

Those two kids were amazing as were some other freshman on both teams playing starting or contributing roles.   SBU does not run an offense or defense as complex as Alabama or Georgia  so placing our guys on the red shirt list is always  questionable.  I also don't believe being an upper classman  gives you any more right to start  over a very talented freshman .   Play the best you have  for that game .
Title: Re: 2018 Commitments
Post by: Campi47 on January 17, 2018, 02:17:03 pm
Coach P believes in redshirting his freshmen so that when they hit their senior year they have been in the program for 5 years and I don't see that changing any time soon

By the way the football coaches of all the colleges had their convention recently and the coaches voted that if a player plays in 4 games or less that they can be redshirted now if they get hurt it has been sent to committee for their approval

One more thing in regards to incoming freshmen recruits the scholarship kids always come in with a leg up on the walk-ons so the walk-ons have to work that much harder to impress the coaches it's the same as in the NFL with draft picks versus free agents. Look at some of our starters last season for SBU that came in as walk-ons; Joe Carbone, Donald Liotine, Dennis Lestrange, John Haggart, Nick Conway just to name a few.

I could not agree anymore Seawolf. The problem is and i have been saying this for 3 years is. Coach P will start Carbone over any quarterback who comes into this program.. I dont care if Trevor Lawrence,  5*, #2 in the ESPN 300, Clemson commit, decommits from from Clemson and signs with SB, Coach P will still start Carbone.. That  is just how he rolls..

I'd lose my mind if we ever got a kid like that, but there's no reason for him to come here. How can we get a good QB when we barely throw the ball? If we had more balance, maybe we could make a move on someone like this. I also don't know where that kid is from, but I'm guessing he's from the south and wouldn't want to be too far from home. JSU is the best FCS program in the southeast.

Cooper is from the south and I am quite certain that is where he will wind up. If he goes to JSU, look at NDSU and JMU.... they will certainly be runner up for next year FCS championship game..

I agree with you also about SB not getting a big time QB as long as coach P is HC.. This program really needs a cleansing with new personal new ideas and a new style of coaching these kids... Fans are tired of the same old style of play calling with this squad of coaches. Bring in all new personal with experience and lets start recruiting quarterbacks who have multiple offers from FBS schools and not settle on a QB with zero offers and project kids. ( Carbone) and others from the past...
Title: Re: 2018 Commitments
Post by: Campi47 on January 21, 2018, 01:20:53 pm
if you guy remember Carbone was to be an Athlete walk-on either at a DB or Receiver however he ended up at QB by default. The 2 QB's they're bringing in this year look like they have the talent but someone has to develop them. The other QB Fields has great talent however he still slings the ball which allows for many of his passes to get knocked down not sure where he figures at this time. The receivers that we brought in last year and the ones that are coming in this year are not coming in for show and tell they're coming here because the OC and Coach P told them they will be throwing more so let's see what happens

The OL Chernak that committed yesterday turned down Maine and Villanova to come here. In total this weekend 5 kids committed and next week 9 more are coming in and then signing day is 2/2/18

If we finish with a winning record, I definitely think he gets extended. If not then I think it's time to show him the door.

From what I've seen, Faison's only other offer was from Monmouth.  Go figure.

The other outstanding running back SBU picked up (Ty'Son Lawson) should not be discounted either.  He looks every bit as talented as Faison.  No way RB is going to be our problem position next season!!

The big sleeper for the 2018 class is Danny Carroll out of Sachem North HS according many people in the football community he might turn out to be one of the best ever out of Sachem as he was constantly doubled and even triple teamed and he still made tackles. He's extremely athletic with a motor that doesn't stop.

According to the recruiting coordinator the theme of this class is its athleticism

The big sleeper for the 2018 class is Danny Carroll out of Sachem North HS according many people in the football community he might turn out to be one of the best ever out of Sachem as he was constantly doubled and even triple teamed and he still made tackles. He's extremely athletic with a motor that doesn't stop.

According to the recruiting coordinator the theme of this class is its athleticism

Attached is my complete list including the walk-ons (there are a few more walk-ons coming)

Last   First   Position   HT   WT   HS   State   Transfer   Comments

Chernak   Gene   OT   6'7   290   Abraham Lincoln   New York

Hammer, Love your passion but you are missing the boat on the preferred walk on program. It is not a negative. It allows the school to add extra kids to the roster without counting against scholarship limits. I have expkained the process before. These kids will recieve state aid, some of them will get full aid. They can earn a full scholarship anytime but if it is given before the finish their 2nd yr it counts against the original signing yr. Thats why you see the walk ons get redshirted, that buys the team an extra yr and you see that they will earn the scholarship when they head into their RS sophmore yr. All the schools do it including the FBS schools. Just look up an article on it and it will explain a lot. Clay Mathews was a prefered walk on at USC. With todays signings that brings the total # of in state kids to 60 I believe. You cant ask for more than that locally.

Where did the brothers from Ward Melville end up going?

I'm guessing that you are talking about Tim and Tom Kutchma.  Looks like both of them signed up with ASA.  I'm a little surprised, considering their purported talent, but maybe it was an academic grades thing.  Since we've gotten talent previously from ASA, I wouldn't be surprised if we see them at SBU in '19 or '20.

It was an academic issue.

SBU got a real steal yesterday when Alex Indelicato a RB/SB/PR out of the Salisbury School in Connecticut announced that he will be a Preferred walk-on. Alex is a bigger version of Sherman Alston and biggest attributes are his break away speed, strength, toughness and durability. I attached his hudl link
