Wow! That one is a big of a surprise since we need some O-linemen. Welcome Shukree! :bonez

 

It looks like Barfield was a going away present from Blake. I wonder who closed the deal?

 

Is he going to play DL or OL? His profile says he is a DT but we are in dire need of OL.

We are not in dire need of ol. Our ol this year was serviceable. Next year we have 3 RS Fresh coming in and return the entire line (unless you consider Mann part of the line in which case we still return Byford). We need him at DT which is where he will play. We are losing our ENTIRE DL does not not constitute dire need?

careful mahoney, i got ripped for saying that a couple days ago. I said i thought a big time receiver at TE (Fleener/Amie) was something i wanted more than a OL this year.

 

I still think Burkes will be our OL for this class, and next year we already have two...

 

I think the coaches know what they need now, and they are doing an amazing job this year.... This and the first full class the coaches had have been awesome in terms of filling needs...

I agree. We are certainly not in "dire" need of OL recruits. In fact, I think we'll be fine if we take none. Ideally we'd like to get 1-2 in this class, but as others have noted, we return players with starting experience at every position, had a large haul of OL recruits last year who have RSed, and we're in good shape for 2008 recruiting for OL already.

with marcel jones verbal, and burkes possible i think that this class is going to be alright on the o-line, with those 2 already committed for next year.

With Hoch and Steinkuhler coming already in 2008,we'll be fine at OL without any more additions this year.

 

Especially if Robinson decides on NU as well. I think he is high on Notre Dame though.
