you could be right....but I think if we take 2 RB, one will be a bigger back, the other a smaller guy. I was very impressed with David Williams in the spring game so I see him being around through 2016.....and I don't think Wilds will leave after 2014.

We'll take 2 RBs this year if there are two we like. We're going to be really thin there starting next year.

I forgot to mention that it also depends on who we get in this class and what the numbers look like. We're not taking 2 RB and then don't have room for a really good player at a position of need.

Default Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

This one is an absolute no-brainer. You take 2 if you can get 2 you like.
Remember we're talking kids who won't enroll until after the 2014 season. At that point, even under the best of circumstances (barring some type of medical RS) You would have 3 Sr's & 1 underclassman scholly RB.

Breaking it down further, Davis is far more likely to leave than stay imo.
Wilds could also leave, but might very well stay (who knows)
Carson is a complete wildcard who's suffered multiple injuries (who knows)

It is conceivable you're left with Williams & nobody else. Williams & one other is, at the least, somewhat likely.

Every RB on our roster has also been injured at some point requiring missed games, with surgeries to Wilds & Carson. We were down to our 5th string RB several yrs ago.

It could be argued strongly that RB is one of the positions of greatest needs in this entire class (along with OT,DE, & WR).

Signing 2 & RS 1 to create some class seperation would seem very logical. Depending on a true freshman to come in & pick up all the blocking assignments is, at best, a crap shoot.

Yea no doubt we need 2 RBs in this class.

Davis is gone. Who knows what Carson will do. Wilds may stay. Williams-who knows what we have there. Depth will be thin after this season

You need atleast 6 RBs on an SEC team IMO

I think I might have gotten a little spoiled with having a few recruits commiting over the last couple of weeks, was hoping to hear a few more guys announce after their visit this weekend. Buuuuuuut I guess not. Ho hum...

I'm just glad he didn't drop to a 3 star.

It sure feels like it goes that way to me. They are a 5 star player, then commit to USC and go down a star. Seriously, how much you guys want to bet if he had committed to Alabama or LSU he would be a 5 star and probably ranked as a top 10 player in the country.

I bet he would have jumped to a 6 star.

Yeah, right? At that point you gotta wonder if we still accept his commitment. I mean, we gotta keep up with CU and their star gazing, right?

We need at least 1 without a doubt and with Salley transferring we really need 2 for depth purposes, I agree!
