We're getting close to the point where the coaches can start saying, "You'd better jump on board or we might be full...."

With Octavis on board, where does that put us with Jalen and Damon Arnette? Is it first to jump on board between those two?

It's exciting to see our recruiting class come together. A lot of really talented guys are already on board and our coaches have done a terrific job thus far. Still a few blue chip prospects out there we could haul in as well.

So with 19 commits (including Washington), who are the most likely next 6 to get us to 25?

2 RBs, the JUCOs (Lewis, Jones Durant, Sawyer), Bailey? That's 7. Maybe still land another DB (Arnette)?

I'm just trying to think of how we are going to round this year out. Thoughts, CoverTwo?

Regardless, this has been the best start I can remember to recruiting in a long time.

I don't think it matters to Jalen Thompson. Arnette may have gotten cold feet.......he was an absolute lock, spent 3 days in Columbia this past weekend, and now wants to visit Kentucky. Today Thompson said he's committing Friday, latest 5 CB to us, and Johnson picking us.......coaches are going to need to do some damage control with Arnette.

remember, our class can be 29 or 30 with 4-5 EE.....
I think we get 2 RB to commit this summer along with Bailey. I guess you saw the post where the coaches said first 2 RB to commit are in.

Saw the RB post. Who would the 5 EE be? I really don't see us taking 11 more in this class.

We are probably going to take more than 25 so I'd think we have up to 8 or 9 slots left. Your list looks pretty solid based on what we know right now. That would be a huge way to end the class.

Hopefully we can add another true OT along with Bailey. That would round it out pretty well. I personally wouldn't be opposed to one more WR either, and hopefully Arnette hasn't changed his mind.

Looks good to me, with recruiting we will lose a few and gain a few based on the season we have, who goes pro.... I agree that we will see up to 29-30 commits and come Feb we should sign a great class, great to see us building on the momentum of the last 3 years.

It won't be though because we are still tight against the 85 over all limit. We'll go over it but not buy that much.

we are on 82 now......the cap goes to 85 for 2015.....with those finishing next year plus those leaving early, we will need to lose about 6-7 next year through attrition for us to have a class of 30. If 1 or 2 don't qualify from the 2015 class, then we would only need attrition of 4-5.

Aren't we already counting Thomas, Ritchie, Sawyer, and possibly Smalls and Wideman? Sawyer will now be a part of the '15 class. We're already counting some EEs to count back for those from the '14 class that didn't get in: are you saying we need 6-7 more in attrition in addition to those EE countbacks?

The only early departures for the NFL that I see as possible are Davis and Shell, and that's it...

Correct, also counted in that 82 are two guys who are still up in the air as far as qualifying. I don't believe we'll have more than 3 Jr's declare as it stands today. Right now there are 14 scholly Sr's

Take the 82 - 14 - 3 = 65

Leaves 20 available before you take into account this year's class (still some academic questions), next year's class (academics) Lose 1 or 2 in each of those classes (like Sawyer, Ritchie) & you create a lot more daylight. Add the guys who want to transfer for more playing time & encouraged attrition and there's probably more room there than many people expect. We'll see, but I think closer to 30 than 25.

About the only thing I'm fairly confident in is that most if not all of the remaining holes on the DL will be filled by JUCO's. Just not hearing much chatter about anymore HS players where there is mutual interest for those spots.
