Usually there are some but I don't recall it being advertised as such. I think it is usually made known to the Press and people associated with the program and friends.

Will the D really improve this year? I like what I'm hearing about DL rotation but have some recent concerns about depth. Will the LB and DB play really be improved. Simplifying the pass D schemes should help but will it be enough? Is the talent there to make it work? Keeping the DL fresher should help the LBers but there must be recognition and reaction strides made also, and they must get off blocks better.

How will the O fare numbers wise vs last year. We know the idea is to utilize more weapons. Will we be able to do that? Has Brax improved enough as a QB? Will the OL play be sufficient to execute our plans?

If it is Amanda Furrer, I know I never would have survived having a girlfriend that was that good of a shot.

Here is my totally inexpert analysis...

QB: Done with Burrow. If Gibson wants on board fine but with the understanding he comes in as an athlete with a look at QB first.

RB: We don't actually need one but would take a great one like Harris.

TE: With Hubbard moving here no need this year. Get two next year.

OL: Get 4 which means 2 more. Lots of options here and new offers may be made.

DT: I think Cornell projects here but we need one more strong recruit here. Looks like Wilkins, Gallimore or ?

DE: Here we  might possibly take two more. Sweat is option A. Maybe they project Cornell to DE and would only take one more DE but two DT. Regardless, I'm thinking five DL.

LB: I think we are probably done.

DB: I'm not hearing a lot about DB recruiting but I'm thinking 5 so one more if you count Glover-Williams as a DB.

Receiver: If they slot Glover-Wiliams here probably only one more but I think GW is a DB and we get two receivers. You know the most wanted men but if they pass I'm not sure who is next on the list.

Add all that up and it is probably more than we can take. I think 20 minimum and wouldn't be surprised to see it higher like 22.

So Moore will probably still have a 'ship, just not one that counts against the football totals. Hasn't this been done with other guys who had career ending medical issues? I show us one below full now. Who will be given the open spot, Greene? Oh, and fuck Biddle.

One of the recruiting gurus here said DeBerry is a guy between positions. I agree with that and would be surprised to see him pursued.

If they want another LB in this class there are plenty of other great options. Jefferson for example.

Will Sunderland will be there? Nice.

Oh is "people of color" out of favor these days? Whatever.
