Who would you list as your top 3 most disappointing recruits since Jimbo's arrival to FSU???
Forgot to add mine...(my bad)
1. Jeff Luc...5 star..All the potential in the world...just couldn't handle the competition and Work harder than he ever has...
2. Darius Cummings...4 star...same..lazy and wanted to be a turd
3. Christian Green/Willie Haulstead...both were promising in 2011...then disappeared last year..guess they should thank Rashad Greene for wanting it more

I don't like to call any of our players out but the transfer guys were a bit disappointing
Kicked off or didn't make it:
Bobby Hart (Yes, I know he's young)
Derrick Mitchell? You serious? Give these kids a chance.
It's not fair to list Green as a bust since he has 2 years left and had a really solid Freshman season. I think he will burst back on the scene this year. Especially since those backup to EJ QBs were used to running 2nd team with him and probably have confidence in him. Also look out for Dent for the same reasons.
GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
Once again not fair imo. Hart did well for a 16/17yr old kid as a Freshman and held his own in the ND Bowl game vs their stud DE's. He seemed to be in the dog house and needed to grow up some this past year but he is our only 5* OL on the roster per Scout and might just surprise us in the future.
I agree. He might just be our best bet to switch to OT. 6'5 305lbs. Although he might be great at DT too. He led the state in sacks as a Senior in HS and has been hurt while at FSU.
Hart and Mitchell? WTF?
Jeff Luc was the first one that came to mind.
Honestly, we have had very few busts since Jimbo has been here.
"Some people think football is a matter of life and death, I assure you, it is much more serious than that."
Really my only big disappointment was Luc. I was his biggest fan outta highschool and thought he was destined for greatness. Kid hit like the waterboy and looked like a tank. But as most said when we signed him, he was way to stiff.
I do have one that's currently on the team that I won't say because I don't feel like getting flamed, but hopefully with a different coach he flourishes like he changes this offense like he was supposed to when he way signed.
the question was "3 most disappointing recruits" not who is a bust. to me CG has been a disappointment so far.... now he could turn it on his last 2 years and totally prove me wrong
Jeff Luc was a big time disappointment. He was a 5 star on a lot of services. He just seems like a better bodybuilder than a football player.
Honestly i don't really care for this topic, i rather talk about the future of FSU.
Glad you clarified that...@ qcaldwell

Keeping with the theme of posters above:
Walker, Winston, and Eligwe.
All of these guys have been on campus for a while now and aren't yet all americans. BIZZUSTS.
I have Ramsey Thomas and Green. They should be in the top 3 by heisman voting by now.
Those are really the only 2. I personally never expected much out of Krug, so I didn't see him as a bust. I really never expect anything out of JUCO's, so when they do produce, it's just icing on the cake, like Carradine was.
