Thomas as well. He's a question mark at this point also.

Default Re: 2014 Signee - Kalan Ritchie

This isn't that big of a deal, b/c there was virtually a 0% chance that he would've seen the field this season and a slim % chance that he would see the field in '15. He was a project recruit that we weren't even 100% on which position he would play (DE or TE.) Now he'll have time to work out, get stronger and a MUCH better chance of getting playing time/game experience the next 2 years.

When he's ready to come here, we'll have a spot for him, he's just got to get better as a player and get the academics in order.

Wideman is going down to the wire it sounds like. And he still has to improve his SAT or ACT. Doesn't sound good IMO.

Have no idea on Thomas.

Why? Did you stop to think that the coaches knew this was a strong possibility and were OK with that? Worst case, we place these guys and are in good position to sign them again in a few years. And if they qualified, fantastic. Who would you think we would have picked up instead if we'd not taken their commitments?

No suprirse about Ritchie...and honestly, it could be for the best...
GMC is a structured environment where Ritchie can not only get bigger and stronger, but he can learn how to be a student.

Wideman, again, going prep school may not be the worst thing for him.

Thomas, just one of those things where it may not work out.

Can this be up for densest post of the year?
Really? it is the coache's fault a player doesn't academically qualify? Pretty sure that falls on the player.

Yes, every staff takes guys that are borderline...but I'm guessing the coaches knew Ritchie was likely a JUCO bound guy, and Wideman also...last I checked, they won't be of need this year anyway with the depth we have at DT and Ritchie was a likely RS since he is still a tossup between TE and DE.

The only one you could possibly blame on the staff is Thomas, but again, how is it the coaches fault if a player doesn't make the grades?

Caldwell is the big blow to this class and that had nothing to do with the coaches. That was a BIG blow.

I think people are making a mistake by overlooking Blake McClain. I truly believe he is an X factor at DE this season.

We won't hear from Sawyer till after the fall semester....Thomas and Wideman will not be able come in for summer 1 which means they'll have to take some make up classes in the summer at best. I'm not getting a good feeling about them. Smalls is in the same situation with his grades.

Yea that was the last I heard as well about 2 months ago. I haven't heard any new info.

At this point I've pretty much added Thomas and Wideman to the non qualifier list. If they made it in somehow it would just be a pleasant surprise.
