Title: 2019 Commitments
Post by: Campi47 on April 26, 2018, 12:00:59 pm
With this being Punter Mark Nolan senior year and the back up punter Jack O'Hanlon leaving SBU reached out to Australia and got their next Punter when Mitchell Wright was on campus this passed weekend and committed so he is officially our 1st commitment for 2019 and I spoke with ST Coach Tony Thompson and he was extremely happy to fill this position now

We had an awesome time at the Empire Challenge football game on Friday, at Hofstra University. What a game and what a way to start the football season off right. SB has 6 players from this years challenge and one player who stands out of the pact for me was OL, Matt Mirabito, Bayshore NY. Holy cow, this kid is a beast and was the biggest guy on the team , from both teams. 6'-7" 315 lbs. and he looks it. All muscle too. He is going to be awesome for SB

Campi. Thanks for the heads up with the Devlin Lineman camp this past Sunday. My son learned some tricks from these guys.

Too bad my son was the only kid from Ward Melville to show up. He said most of the Lineman were from the usual Football schools around the island, Longwood, Floyd,Bayshore...

Hammer I'm glad your son went and learned a few things

You should tell your son and the other Ward Melville players that if they go to my website (www.liblitz.com) they can put up their player profile and attach their hudl link

Matt Mirabito is a monster the only thing the SBU Coaches have to get from him is to be a little meaner if they can get that out of him his upside could be enormous.

SBU now has 2 verbal commitments for the 2019 Class, the first one is OT Cole Gambino 6'3 275 from St. Joseph's HS in Buffalo and the second one is Isas Waxter a 6'2 190 CB/WR/KR from Immaculate Conception in New Jersey. There are at least two more that as soon as the players put them up on twitter I will give you their names.

SBU picked another verbal commit today from Aidan Kaler an OLB from Sayville HS

The kid from Sayville is 6'2 220 OLB who ran a 4.7 on campus and is a big time player who even had interest from SMU. He also Punts, PK's and is their TE.

I find this somewhat surprising since we don't know what will happen to Coach P at the end of the year. I'd also be wary about counting on kids this early, as it's likely come December or January, P5 schools will start giving kids last second offers to fill out their rosters.

I'd assume Coach 'P" will still be there and I figure the kids do the same.

December 19 is when we should see our verbal commits  sign SBU  NLI.  Signing in the early signing period is the new normal.

It is understood that a verbal is just a verbal but a very high percentage of our verbals actually sign.

Aidan Kaler was offered in July but just committed yesterday because he had other offers and talked it over with his parents and notified SBU yesterday that he was committing to them.

SBU has many offers out to many players and they usually give them a time table on how much time that player has to commit and there comes a point if the player hasn't committed they move onto the next player.

Looks like SBU will be getting another really good WR and kick returner, coming out of Stepinac.  Shawn Harris has committed.  Is this your guy, Campi47?

A little insight on commitments; to date 5 players have committed (if you go through previous posts you will see their names). In addition 2 other players currently hold offers. Between the players we lost last year and what we will lose this it's about 40 players so because of that the remainder of the 2019 class will be made up of DI transfers and JC players so that we remain in the top tier of the CAA as our younger players develop.

Campi, What do you know about Yodhe Desta, OL from PA. He holds 9 offers and just committed to SB for 2019. He looks strong but raw.

I don't think Yodhe was the player to commit. I'm hoping it was Keith Winfrey from Floyd. I think he could be the heir apparent to Haggart at the anchor/OLB position. He's embarrassing people in the video below.

He looks like a beast- super athletic in those videos. I give Coach P a lot of flack on the offensive side but he really does develop these defensive players well. Long Island football players will continue to be overlooked- Stony Brook should continue finding raw but athletic talent like Winfrey who can develop into elite college players. More and more non-FBS players are making impacts in the league so this is still a viable path to the NFL.

Is there a quality QB in one of these commitments?

I know Fields is going to be SB next QB to start, but something telling me he is not much better passer than Carbone. Hard to say with certainty because of the limited role. I would like to see what Freshman Zamot has under the hood.

Maybe with all the talented players being recruited lately, SB can find a high caliber QB for the next 4 years..

Fields is more athletic though. Hopefully him using his legs will keep defenses honest and open up more throwing lanes.

The transfers that I see them going after are OL/DL/LB

Campi, sadly but true. Can you shed some light on this very old subject. What is going on with SB not finding a decent QB since Essington.  What chatter have you been hearing in regards to this problem? 

I can only speculate and say this. SB is no secret as being a ground and pound team so one would think that if you are a decent pocket passer, SB is the last place you want to go play at, right??? Maybe I am missing something else. Why cant they bring in a talented grad transfer or any transfer?

I think you're all pushing the panic button a little prematurely.  Everything I've seen and read about SBU's two current freshmen QBs has been very positive.  Their HS credentials are stellar, and I think they deserve a shot at proving themselves at the D-1 level. before we right them off.  I think Zamot and Sanchez may be the real deal!

I guess time will tell, but I see Fields taking over at QB for the next two years, and the little we did see of him, I'm concerned for this team.
Title: Re: 2019 Commitments
Post by: Wolffan on November 05, 2018, 08:33:52 pm
I think the quarterback concern stems from the fact we are strong in all facets of the game except quarterback play (OK, maybe kicking is mediocre also). If we were an Albany-level team at this point one would not really notice our QB as a major weakness...but our D, our receivers, our two running backs, our O line, etc.  are all top-flight FCS.  Just like last year. 
A top flight FCS team wanting to make headway in the playoffs has to have a QB with either a rocket arm or a decent arm with real wheels (plus the physical toughness that our QB does have).  In all honesty, I am not sure our QB starter or our QB backups fit either of those two models of very successful FCS quarterbacks.
Title: Re: 2019 Commitments
Post by: Chairman of the Board on November 06, 2018, 11:21:32 am
i remember watching that zamot film a while back.  mobile qb.  he has a quick release due to that short windup.  i also like the weakside naked bootlegs.  he throws bullets.

sanchez has more of a lob/touch pass.  i like his ability to throw on the run across the body, which is good for scrambling of course.  big boy that runs the ball but not so quick.
Title: Re: 2019 Commitments
Post by: VA_Seawolf on November 06, 2018, 05:40:41 pm
Honestly, if none of them naturally have a whole lot of arm talent (for a D1 QB), and we can't develop them into better passers (not counting on it), having them be more dual threat guys and use their legs is probably the optimal play. We're already a rushing offense, why not have a running QB? Fields could bring that and Zamot too probably.
Title: Re: 2019 Commitments
Post by: Chairman of the Board on November 06, 2018, 05:47:59 pm
wanna go wildcat?  zamot has a receiver's body.  spread the defense, direct snap into the RB, keep the QB slotted, making the defense account for one more body.  send zamot or fields from the slot into motion for a quasi flea flicker.  ::)

Aidan Kaler from Sayville who has committed won the Suffolk County LB Award and Top Defensive Player Last night which is the 2nd year in a row that an SBU commit did that last year it was Danny Carroll who was redshirted.

Another thing was that both Keith Winfrey and Aidan Kaler were named 1st team All Long Island

Also PK Angelo Guglielmelo from St. Joe's Montvalle in NJ broke all the NJ kicking records

Shawn Harris WR from Stepinac was the Top Receiver from Westchester and the CHSFL

That's truly a great get. I give Coach P a hard time about utilizing out talent and converting it into wins, but I can't knock the recruiting. He's doing a great job at getting talent into the program. You've got to convert that into wins though.

Yeah I really like his highlights. We almost never see DB commits actually make DB plays. It's nice to see him making big plays in the right position. Also love that he'll be on campus for spring ball. Still wouldn't mind brining in Waxter too though.

JMU's new coach was Elon's previous head coach. He said he wouldn't go after any recruits currently committed to Elon, so instead he's trying to come after our recruits. Very dirty move. We should do the same to them. JMU is a regional university that does little in the way of research. SBU is a nationally ranked research powerhouse and is a member of the AAU. We run circles around them academically. That should matter to Brinson whose commitment was due in large part to our academics. He had interest from Ivy League schools.

I have no doubt there are academically inclined recruits who are looking at JMU, who would look our way if we really sold SBU's academic reputation to them. Academically, we're a Big Ten school in the FCS, that's a very compelling story.

A really nice day for our TE and H-Back positions between him and Kaler.

What I'm hearing is that they offered many players however only 9 were ready to sign today the others still have the offer but they run the risk that SBU could find someone better between now and 02/06/19 the next signing day.

Brinson decided he wasn't signing at this time that's when JMU offered but SBU hasn't given up on him signing on 02/06

There were other players that SBU has on their radar but haven't offered them as of now

Marcus Valez has the best hands this SB team has ever seen as a TE. He is strong, tall but he is slow. Awesome kid. His hands are better than Will Tye, no joke...SB would be so ever lucky to grab JJ Lap.Another kid I love. Great parents with both of them.  I still dont know where he is committing, but dont be surprised if he goes FBS, but I hope SB grabs him. again, probably would go in as safety or CB, also kick off return specialist.

2019 SBU Recruiting Class

liblitz.com/SBU%20Commitments.html

There's some good size at all the positions which is always nice, but the somewhat concerning thing to me is that there's only one player who isn't from the tri-state area. Given that we're in the CAA playing against schools in talent rich states like Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland, I figured we'd start touching down there more often for recruits. In the past I recall us getting multiple players from the mid-Atlantic/south. Guys from PA, VA, MD, etc. I do believe the Northeast is under-recruited, especially at the FCS level, but if we're going to be a top flight FCS program, and hopefully move up to the FBS in the near future, you'd think we'd be getting more guys from down south. I find it very odd we don't have a single player from down there.

Maybe Jack Coan will want to leave the QB logjam at Wisconsin and come home to LI.

Apparently a hotshot frosh (#1 pro style recruit in the nation and just arrived on campus early) is coming to Wisconsin and Alex Hornibrook has announced he is graduating early and leaving to play elsewhere.  Jack Coan replaced the injured Hornibrook for several games last year and played OK. Just OK.

There is also a redshirt QB and a backup in the mix. It gets confusing (note Coan's stat line):

I don't really blame the school as much as I blame Newsday. Most information on college programs comes from local news outlets, but Newsday only ever does the bare minimum of reporting on Stony Brook.
