Default Discussion: Def End and 2015

I think it's safe to say we got some quality depth at Def End in this class.

Thomas, Sawyer, McClain, Wideman, Ritchie.

Did we get too much?
Can we hang on to 2015 commits/targets?

Please don't insert the usual response of "trust the coaches". We all trust the coaches, okay?

It's a valid point to realize we may not be able to hold on to these guys in 2015

I think Wideman, McClain are going to grow into DTs. Thomas only has two years I beleive.

If Wideman and McClain can plug the gap at DE for next year (pun intended), we should be in good shape for 2015...

1 or 2 of those probably won't get in. Another will grow in to DT. Ritchie could play TE and of course if Thomas gets in he gets just those 2 years.

As of right now, yes but that could change any moment. Chauncey Rivers, our other 4* DE, may decommit in the near future. Would be nice if we could sign both + Arden Key when it's all said and done.

Default Re: Def End and 2015

I think this means we won't be taking as many DEs next year...we may only take one more (Arden Key) if it is clear either McClain and current guys Gerald Turner grow in DTs (Wideman will be a DT too).

If so, I see us adding Key and that is it...maybe a DT (JUCO D.J. Jones possibly or Albert Huggins) and call it a Dline class. Maybe 3 DBs and 2 LBs.

I wouldn't be surprised if we have a smaller class next year..that focuses more on skill guys and offensive linemen...I'm think 4-5 Olinemen, mostly OT (one being a JUCO possibly), two RBs, 3-4 WRs, a TE (maybe 2) and a QB. LIke I said, 3-4 DL, 2 LBs and 2-3 DBs.

I'm thinking we sign 18-20 guys next year...barring any early departures and transfers.

We'll make some noise in the recruiting world if we can sign Blackshear and Key.

Default Re: Def End and 2015

Sawyer is a beast & could play WDE or SDE; Wideman may stay at DE- Haven't had an absolute stud SDE-ever possibly.... would be awesome.

Also, remember a kid from Bluffton S Blackshear? Bad mother-WDE & a current class of 2015 commit. Rivers & Key would be nice too, but with BAW playing a Norwood role, & the # of DEs we will have on the roster, the next cycle will be more traditional & won't be DE/CB heavy....definately going after several OTs & RBs....but we will sign the best players for our system-period.

I believe 2015 is going to be a heavily offensive class.

Rivers is far thicker than Key (Key has a frame like English). Blackshear is the prototypical WDE. Definately will be a fight over Key & Rivers w UGA. Everyone will come after Blackshear.

Default Re: Def End and 2015

2 things to remember with Arden Key.

1) He was committed to us and decommitted when Green decommitted. Green, his best friend, signed with us yesterday.

2) Wes Mitchell said he was around him yesterday and said if he didn't already have him CB'd to Columbia, he would have made that prediction yesterday. I think we get Key, Blackshear, and Rivers all in the same class. I don't know if it will be long before Key commits again, too. Could happen sooner than some think.

As if anyone on here cares what they read or don't read. If we don't some of these guys we don't get some of them. We can play alot of DE DE DT DE setups I guess. And do a lot of rotating keeping the defense fresh.

taters want Rivers BAD, they will pull out all the stops and probably sway him. He and Key both have a frame to build on, I'd rather have Rivers tbo either way, we are going to have a solid d-line for the next 3-4 years. Im more concerned with the drop off at spur and RB after Mike leaves.

Players as talented as Blackshear and Rivers don't worry about competition...Our depth chart, style of play and our program will remain very attractive...I still think we will sign 3 quality DEs in the next class
