JUCO Recruiting

Recommended Posts

Apparently he could be immediately eligible and show up in the summer.  Would play a similar position to Breon Dixon.

Totally unexpected and if he commits and comes here, would be an amazing get.

I’m getting the feeling that our coaches have 0 confidence in the current DB’s.  

 

Greg Smith from Hail Varsity said that it is very telling that they are still looking for immediate help in June.

I’m guessing they finally got around to watching last years film

I agree with you 100%.  I love how Frost and his staff are going hard after top JUCOs.

Since you expressed this as a "feeling" ... I'll express that I get the "feeling" that perhaps Frost & Company "feel" that added the top JUCO DB in the country would be something worth doing because it makes the team deeper and stronger.  I "feel" it may not have as much to do with "0 confidence" as it does to just make the team better.

I'm not mocking your statement at all.  It might be spot on.  It's backed up by Greg Smith's thoughts as well.  I just don't even know if adding the top JUCO DB is "very telling" about "0 confidence" or if this move just makes the team better.  In the end, why would any team pass up the top JUCO DB if they could land them?  Thus, I don't even get this view.  Puzzling.  Even teams like Alabama add top JUCO talent ... and they have mostly 4 star and 5 star players.  Hmmm.

Travis Fishers comments over the last few days is another indication

Frost wants to come in and win TODAY. Other coaches would be like yeah our DBs aren't good we will recruit that hard for the 19' class. Frost says nah, we gonna get them to play in 2018. Love it

He (I believe, but might have been Chin) has also been clear that we have half as many bodies in the room as we would like to. 

 

It could be a quality issue. 

 

It could be a quantity issue. 

 

Or it, likely imo, could be some of both.

^^^ For me ... this makes the most sense to me.  And, like @BIG ERN said, let's win now!  

I enjoy how a forum can "round out" a discussion.

What would make it an amazing get?  I don't see much info on him.

I am guessing quality late depth at a scarcely thin position group.  Interest from lsu and tcu speaks of the athleticism of this guy.  If the kid can play off the bat them great, but Fisher wants competitionback there and can't have competition without have some available bodies to compete.

I suppose that's a good thing, but almost wish he was a 2/2 or 2/3  player, not 4 for 3.  He didn't stand out from what little i was able to find*, and if he doesnt stand out here either, we have his "services" for up to 3 years.   I don't know that he's been offered (yet), but if one is forthcoming, it's one I will question a little bit.

 

*i am not an evaluator of talent whatsoever, unless it's blatantly obvious that a guy has elite skills

He hasn't been offered yet.

 

I think we can weather having a couple kids like this (assuming that he's not a great player, which we don't know). It's not a long-term problem. At the very least I think it's worth taking a chance on a couple players at a thin position just to put more pressure on the would-be starters. And maybe they'll surprise us.

Where do you think Frost & Co. would play him?  DL or LB?

No idea- I don’t think there is any evidence we are even pusueing him

I don't care one way or the other, but i found it funny that the article mentioned that the SEC suddenly has a moral high ground by not taking transfers that were dismissed for a serious incident

We appear to be in the top 3 for Kuony Deng. Us, A&M, and Texas. Would be a nice get.

It seems like under Frost we end up in the top group with alot of kids no one is talking about on this board. Ninja recruiting.

Meh. Riley was the king of top groups.

Something else not being talked about enough. The organized effort by Frost to attack all possible avenues to better the team. High School Recruits, Juco Recruits, Grad Transfers, JUCO kids who were immediately eligible. Awesome effort I think to get kids who can help this season to flip the roster- blend it with JUCO kids who can help next year and also high school kids to develop the roster for a long term strategy.
