  1. Sounds like possibly Bleekrode, Ortiz, and Fleeks not on "scholarship" + at least two guys taking the "retirement package" Guessing those guys would be from the LB/DB rooms.
  2. Luckily RB is an easy position to get a guy from the portal if needed. Also the easiest position to have a freshman be an impact player. Gotta go get a stud this class.
  3. I'm not so sure about that. Just as you have guys moving up from lower levels you have guys transferring down as well. Still though it sucks if they luck into finding an absolute stud he won't finish there. Overall I think it may increase parity of college football throughout the Power 5 but I also think it's going to make it extra tough to knock down the top dogs now. It's going to be rare that teams like Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State ever have an off year because they'll never have holes in their roster. They whiff on a few QB classes in a row, no big deal just go to the portal and get somebody better.
  4. It sounds like Alante wanted to be here but he was not academically eligible for this semester. That’s why the reports were that he could return this summer. He had to get his grades up to get back to get back into the University. Either things weren’t looking good in regards to him getting that done or Rhule likes what we have enough that he told him that it’s best for him to move on.
  5. I think it was stated that he had some family issues that caused him to be away from the team. But we do have to trim the roster so the easiest place to start is with a guy who hasn’t been here. If Rhule likes our depth at the receiver position he may have encouraged him to move on.
  6. Lot's of speculation about Ajay Allen it seems. Either he's giving us clues on his social media or he likes to egg it on. There's obviously going to be some guys to leave that we don't want to but I hope he isn't one of them.
  7. I'm holding out hope that Hill can still reach his "Sunday Guy" potential that we heard about last year.
  8. Well he started a trucking company in the peak of the freight market post-covid. The bottom has completely fallen out of freight now so I imagine his pro basketball options are much better than trucking at this time.
  9. Oh yea, it was just the first year that seniors didn’t count.
  10. Nice. I believe it was the spring games two years ago that I noticed him and thought he might be a walk-on to look out for. I’m almost surprised this is the first time we’re really hearing about him.
  11. Is there a possibility that Clark could not count against our scholarship limit? Could he technically be called a covid guy still?
  12. Sucks that none of the guys you listed were early enrollees as they could be getting some good reps this spring with a couple starters out. Van Poppel looks pretty mature and will probably have as good of shot as playing as a freshman as any DL ever will which is still not ideal. Maciejczak obviously has the brute strength but I have no idea what we should expect from him.
  13. They do have packages that put them on the field at the same time. Would likely see them together on 3rd down, especially obvious passing situations.
  14. I've thought Bullock would contribute before his time here was over, he looks like a dude. Had high hopes for Kpai, but he and Malcolm probably need to start showing something or they're going to get pushed out. Rogers might have the best chance of any freshman at early playing time.
  15. I should have worded that differently. Haarberg was QB2 at the scrimmage, with Thompson and Smothers still limited.
  16. I don’t think there’s any doubt he will be. But if he ends up behind Sims, Im not sure he sticks around. So who ends up QB3 could be important. Also I’ll throw out another scenario. Say it ends up like, 1. Sims 2. Thompson 3. Haarberg/Smothers 4. Purdy 5. Torres. I think it’s possible that at least 2 out of 3 of Thompson, Purdy, and Smothers could move on if Sims is the starter and Haarberg is ahead of Purdy/Smothers.
  17. Reports from practice are that Sims looks very good. Haarberg is reportedly the #2 guy right now and looking good. It’s going to be an interesting fall in the QB room.
  18. You've determined that Ajay isn't motivated from one practice clip? Um ok.
  19. I wonder if he actually has the green light to commit.
  20. It will be interesting to see how our interior line shakes out but I like our options there. I think Piper is a guy who still has a chance to be very good and I'm excited to see what he can do under new tutelage. The other questions is will Corcoran eventually move inside? And then is he going to be better than Piper and Nouilli? I think Lutovsky will get snaps but he's just a sophomore so I think he'll remain behind the other guys. A lot is going to be dictated by whether or not Teddy is healthy and effective.
  21. Well first off it’s just what some guy said on Twitter so who knows if it’s true. But theoretically if he only went for the NIL money and now he’s hurt those deals may not come to fruition so why be there. Who knows though it will be interesting to see how it plays out.
  22. Guys on Twitter saying the rumor is that he’s injured, possibly a torn labrum, and that is playing into this decision.
  23. His NIL check pry bounced.
  24. Gilbert looks like a dude that would suck to tackle with a full head of steam...
