Default Re: Recruiting Impressions

We have as many 4 stars committed right now as we signed last year, FYI.

If Smith, Scott, Caldwell, Wideman, and Green fall our way .. that would be the most we've signed since 2009.

Not bad, and there's still the possibility of someone getting a bump.

That would be a great way to close.

Default Re: Recruiting Impressions

full 22 in this class with the academic risk kids

if everyone qualifies, the staff will figure out how to make them all fit into the 82 scholarship limit. That is something they will deal with when the time comes.

Green is a must get
DJ Smith seems like he is ours
Wideman is someone we'll work until the last hour
You take JUCO DE Caldwell if his transcripts check out because Thomas is not a sure bet to qualify nor is Sawyer and Wideman if he flips.

More names will probably continue to pop up if we miss or don't like our position with our targets.

2CBs is a must finish and Green is the most important recruit left on our board.

Darrius Caldwell, four star JUCO DE that has said he will commit to us if we offer. Has the size, speed, and athleticism to make an early impact.

Sawyer has work to do but he appears to be in good shape. If he continues on the path he's been on he should be fine. Getting him to qualify would be huge.

Agree with you on Green. He's as close to an absolute must get as can be.

Also some talk about Thomas being bumped up to a 4*, and if Samuel has a big Shrine Bowl, he too can get a 4* rating. We could finish with 12+ (4*) commitments.

C2, do you think that would give us a top 15 class when this cycle is done? That's a lot of four stars.

It's great to get all the DEs but not a damn one may qualify.

We need Smith and Green.

Must haves are at least 2 more corners.If they get 2 from Smith,Green,and Lammons then they have had a very good recruiting class.Fail to do that and you leave a huge hole.The other remaining guys are all frosting on the cake,with the 2 two at the top of my wish list being Prince and Wideman.
