I suppose they just think they have some guys in Jaimes, Farniok, Gaylord, Benhart, Anderson, Lynn.

 

That is the most likely explanation.

 

Jaimes seems to have us in good shape.  But Farniok has always been kind of a tweener who would probably be better at guard.  Gaylord (and Sichterman) haven't really shown much from what we've been able to see in the spring game and second half vs. B-C plus what they coaches have apparently seen in practice.  After that, you're counting on guys who aren't even signed yet, let alone here.

 

I was really hoping to be able to slide Farniok to guard.  If you had Jaimes, a JUCO and Benhart (plus Anderson, Lynn, Gaylord and Sichterman) at tackle that would look better to me.  Then you have Wilson, Farniok and Bland/Hixon/Rairdon/Jurgens on the inside.

I thought we were already at 22. We go to 21 after Wandale tomorrow if we land him.

I was thinking we were at 24 after Benhart Commitment. Then Javin bumped us to 22.

Nah. Benhart made us jump. Wright didn't add that many points to our total, really.

Yeah, I don't disagree.

I know you're not discounting this, but it's easy to forget a lot of those guys are still quite young and haven't had that much time in our S&C Program. Development sure feels like it is happening in our program.

Wonder what is up with Brent Banks?

 

247 thought he was a lock to commit on his last visit. I wonder if he was an IF guy.  He seems like a good option for us, as he seems like he could play OL or DL.

Doesn’t he look like a guy who has a long way to go S&C wise? Looked really slight to me like a basketball player

When do transfers happen usually? I was just thinking if we are going to be under the 85 limit still after early signing and regular signing in february. Once all the firings happen in early december etc. Plus the new wave of kids just leaving because they dont like their situation. I wonder how many transfers in the off season we could expect. That could help us out on some instant impact players. We know Maryland kids will be bolting. But I am sure plenty of other schools will have kids leave too.

There is a RB from Missouri that I think the staff should go after. He is fast and shifty and can split out wide and player receiver. I will put his hudl and profile on here and see what you guys think.

 

Nathaniel Peat

Wow! I just checked up on this guy and saw that he was committed to Stanford. I really had a good evaluation of him early on. He would have been a perfect Duck-R in this offense.

It was my understanding that the coaches want to take just enough players in 2019 to ensure a max 25 for next year.  Of course this is probably very fluid but it seems to make the most sense.

I'm thinking they pursue the graduate transfer market for a couple spots as well to make this a reality.

Yes- hopefully a grad transfer kicker or punter!

We have our kicker for four years and Armstrong will be solid for next year.

 

We need a grad-transfer rushing OLB. Tannor needs to get up to speed and hopefully, Guy Thomas steps up as well. And we need another young one to develop or potentially play right away. 

 

A grad transfer receiver or o-lineman/d-lineman/safety may not be bad either.

Armstrong ok, kicker I’m not sold. Can he make a FG past 35 yds?

An impact player at WR seems like a key transfer target. Less JD, I'm not sure we have many special play makers coming back next year. Hopefully Miles Jones keeps coming along.

Curious to see if we make a run at a JUCO DE, we kind of get thin in a hurry after next year. 

 

Malcolm Lee seems to make sense, but the contact has been minimal. Recently named Texas (no offer but interest really gaining), Iowa, Houston, UCF his 4 finalists.

 

OV to Texas in Dec.

OV to Iowa for game against us.

I guess I'm not seeing that.  After next year we have:

 

Sr - Stille, Thomas

Jr - Walker

Soph - Wildeman, Rogers

Fr - Piper, Newsom

 

Plus anyone else we get this year (Robinson?)

 

Maybe 1-2 of those guys end up at NT but I don't think we're short by any means.

Stille & Thomas = good.

 

Walker = Not sure he's bringing much. Hasn't been mentioned by coaches all year and looked bad in what time he did get vs Bethune. Hope I'm wrong but don't see him making an impact. 

 

Wildeman & Rodgers = Hopeful for both, but neither has even played a down yet. Not to mention both suffered semi-major injuries that will keep them from practicing this fall. High on both, just not sure if I'm that high that quick. 

 

Piper & Newsom = Still not sure Piper won't end to on Oline or at NT. Newsome looks like a development guy, is he ready as a RsFr? I'd put Garrett Nelson in that boat too as I still believe he grows into DE. He's Ben Stille 2.0, not Luke Gifford 2.0 (stole that from Twitter).

I mean ... we obviously haven't seen much from anyone other than Stille and Thomas becuase the rest of the guys are either young or not even here yet.  It's pretty tough to project two years down the road and start saying that five guys might not be that good yet because we haven't seen anything from them yet.  A big part of the reason we haven't seen anything from them is because we have four upper-classmen this year who are getting all the playing time.  

 

I haven't seen anything about them looking at JUCO DEs.  I just don't see it happening, unless they happen across an absolute stud.  JUCO OLB looks pretty likely.  Other than that, probably not.  I would have thought JUCO OT but it sounds like they've cooled on that idea.

 

We still have Davis, Davis and Neal for next year plus Stille and Thomas.  If they don't like how the younger guys are looking 10 months from now they might be in the JUCO market.  But not at this point.

 Sure, it's mostly just personal opinions on development. We are rolling 4 guys in and out at DE, would like to keep it that way. Maybe Walker, Newsome, Nelson, Robinson (hopefully) provide that 5th or 6th guy. 

 

I agree next year is more likely on the JUCO DE, just seems like there are lot of connections with Lee. 

 

Not thinking we'll take a JUCO ILB? We seem to be talking to a few.

I guess I'm not sure.  We definitely seem to be interested in JUCO LBs.  I got the impression that we're mainly looking for an edge rusher.  With Barry back next year (plus Weinmaster), Honas and Miller for two more years and Hannah and Heinrich set to show up, I don't think we're really hurting for ILBs.

I was under the impression Caleb Johnson and Dru Mathis were both being recruited as ILB by us, maybe I am off on that.

Some 1AA kids I wouldn't mind taking for a year....I like to find recruits from all walks. 

 

Jacksonville St (WR) Josh Pearson - Currently leads the nation in receiving TD. 6'4 kid with length that would be a nice replacement for Stanley 

NW St (WR) Jazz Ferguson - Former LSU commit. Posting some good receiving numbers and is also tall at 6'5 

SDSU (LB) Christian Rozeboom - Always thought he was underrated as a HS player in IA and still doing well 

Wagner (LB) Cam Gill - OLB that can get to the QB, and is top 10 in TFL in the nation currently

Now that our last flurry of commitments came in and the Wandale hangover is over. Any idea when the next commitment may come? If anyone is planning to sign in december I would think they would announce in the next couple weeks? Or maybe at this point they will wait and do the dramatic signing day announcement?

Just offered another JUCO ILB, I'd say that confirms we are looking for one. Fun fact, he was suppose to be Minny's QB this year. 

 

Edit: May be at OLB.

He's had a very odd recruitment.

 

We even offered him in HS and he enrolled at Cal as a DT QB....then he went JUCO for a year....then went to MN to play QB......now is back at JUCO as an OLB.....

Probably just Clouse spewing nonsense sunshine pumping as always....

 

But "supposedly" there is talk of Marquez Beason (Illini Commit), Calvin Avery (Illini Player), Chevin Calloway  (Former Arky starting CB, stepped away for personal reasons) looking to make a reunion  (they all went to Bishop Dunne w/Daniels) possibly at Neb.

 

Also talk of a similar situation involving some Georgia  (the state) kids doing the same. 

 

Personally, I don't buy it.

I had actually heard from a guy connected to the program there was some buzz about some major talent coming in at the end of the year as transfers. Calloway was the only name I heard at the time.

All 3 of those names are high 4 star players. What about that is bad? 2 are transfers 1 is still in high school. 

 

If the georgia kids are also high 4 stars. Why would we not entertain like 3 or 4 , 4 star transfers potentially?

Or a legit player who was literally in our backyard that we passed on because of measurables. It was awesome we took an in-state kid in Mapieu but it was evident he had academic issues. This still boggles my mind that we didn't at least pursue Bryson at all under Riley.
