We have recruited some loaded classes the last three years. Some kids will understand they will never play here. Expect quite a few transfers over the next 12 month, but lets not speculate names
I love you 305, but absolutely, positively 0% chance we land Grimes, DPJ, Harris, and Richardson. Zip, zilch, natta. Thats four big bodied receivers after taking several this cycle. Kids notice depth charts. Also we won't take Richardson if somehow we pull a wizard like move and land Grimes, Harris and DPJ (spoiler alert: we won't).
Does Ryan Timmons play QB now?
I honestly don't see the need for another QB in 17, unless we can get a surefire kid with minimal resources spent. Even if Clark doesnt pan out, we still have Joey B, Haskins and then can go all out in 2018. I would hate to see us burn two spots for Qbs with numbers soo limited. Obviously if a kid like Tate Martell wants to follow his boy Tyjon Lindsay up to Cbus then you gladly say yes.
Hey the good news is we won't have to hear as much about Peppers being the next coming of Christ, then him being a ghost come the end November. Gary will help fill that role for him.
Most telling is the complete crash of MGoblog and the yearly issues over at Rivals every NSD. Kinda shitty considering well ya know recruting is 100% of what Rivals covers. NSD is kinda a big deal. Props Jason!
I don't know why this comes as a surprise to anyone... Saban has dominated college football while at Bama, is at a historical powerhouse, in the best conference in football (if you believe that or not is up to you), right smack dab in the heart of the most talent rich area in America. No doubt he kills it year in and year out.
Guranteed to finish higher than Mich in 247 composite which is all that matters. Consensus top 5 class. Great cycle.
This class is going to fill up much slower than 16. With numbers a tad tighter, Urbs will go hard as hell for early pledges from big guys like Grimes, Wade, Hansard etc. But I don't expect us to be as full come January 2017 as we were this year.
Both those dudes were locks for awhile. One of the big reasons Bama was expected to compete for #1.
If Michigan got every single recruit they were in on today (which they didn't), including Gary, they still didn't have a chance to overtake us. (247 composite)
Can we wait until post Spring Game at least? We always experience some attrition during Spring Practice. I think we owe the kids that much
Absolutely no mention of Dame Webb either which I thought was a bit odd...
It doesn't matter that he's a JUCO or not. Kid is 6'8 325 and is college ready now. Plain and simple he is a better tackle today than everyone we have on our roster. Why would you ever not try and get a bonafide instant starter?
We will be at 85 come September. No point in speculating now. Long ways away.
Malcolm is expected to come in and play immediately. Could very easily be a one and done player, which explains our heavy interest in him. Like I said above he will be LT alongside Price, Elflein, Jamarco moves to guard and Prince at RT. Uber athletic line.
Much happier to see a kid like Pridegeon added to this class late than another DB project or a reach for a DT. 6'8 athletic tackles are not exactly easy to find. Would be a big boom.
Except KFed is 6'9 and would get roasted at this level of competition at DT. Our depth at DT is not nearly as dire as some here make it out to be. We certainly don't need to make drastic moves such as these.
I believe 3M mentioned it earlier but you can open another card with a promo 0% interest period (12-18 mos.) and transfer your balance to that card and pay off your debt in that promotional period. Many cards now do in fact offer free balance transfers, just have to do your homework on which products charge a fee and which do not. Absolutely no need to take on another loan with only $1500 in debt. Theoretically you should be able to pay that down in a reasonable amount of time. Remember, pay your billl in full as much as possible. Revolving is how banks make money and makes you owe them more money then you are spending.
LT Pridegeon, LG Price, C Elflein, RG Jamarco, RT Prince.
Place looks wild, I never lived in Cbus until college so the place was long gone by then, but it was such an original idea - something Columbus dearly needs today. Only so many chain restaurants and cookie-cutter gastro pubs until you become desensitized to them all. building itself looks like its worth stopping in regardless of the food/drinks. Shame.
FSU beat writer saying he's less confident for FSU compared to just last week. OSU is making it more interesting than most think...
It's awful quiet out here so far today. No big leaks of information as of yet. I'm still saying we just get Fuller today.
Interesting we have been after the other Bama rb commit Najee Harris for awhile as well. Harris is a top 10 player nationally, and knowing Bama they will figure out a way to keep both of these guys. Granted Harris is from Cali so I could see him sticking at USC.
