Ditto.

 

It's a comment on the human condition. We can have what we want, but we never know when we have it, because we are always searching for it.

25 commits right now, though Bland is a bit of a question mark.  25 open spots plus however many over-signs.  Word is we are taking 30 - though a couple might be grad transfers.  I think it will be a couple less than that.  Maybe a spot or two for walk-ons as well.

One of them is already here, right?  DT from OSU???

 

Yes, that is one.  Not sure where else we might take one.  Maybe a WR if the right guy is available.

I guess I was always thinking that the grad transfers might be above and beyond what the actual class is when they have been talking about taking 30.

Yeah, it's tough to know for sure.  That's entirely possible.  Probably depends on how the class actually fills out.  And any other grad transfers won't be here until summer so they'll have a much better idea about who's leaving by then.  So if there are more guys that leave than they expect, it could be more.

Thanks for the update Mav! 

 

Until I hear more I am with you on Bland, just don't think he will be in this class as he has been a question mark for some time. I hope he is though as he would provide immediate depth. But, Piper will be a solid guard to take his spot and develop. If we take Bivens signature I am not sure if that means Mills is out or if they are just concerned. I think we get one of Njoku or Houston or a grad transfer, maybe two of them. It will depend on the numbers. 

 

For the defense, Pola Mao would be a great addition to fill the NG spot and he can develop and see some time in 4 games. I would love to have Steven Parker, but for now, I think Dylan Jordan is who we will have to settle for. Out of the 4 DB prospects left, only DJ James is the true corner we have. Starks or NPG could play it but I see them more at safety, and I think NPG will play some safety in 2019 if he ends up picking us. We only will take Mayo if we miss on two of those three targets. If we get NPG and James or Starks we will have done really well in the DB class. 

 

I say we take 5 spots giving us 30 with Bland or 29 without him.

I think we get Jordan, Pola-Mao, Pola-Gates, and DJ James and call it. Bland does not sign.

I’d be fine with this outcome.  Let’s grt these guys in the fold and call it a day.  Let’s move on to 2020 and get a top 15 class.

I seriously think we get the Polas. I've just been wondering who else.

A guy like Juwan Johnson? Not that there is mutual interest but I'm sure we would bring him in if we could.

I was just thinking that. Rivals lists him at 255, still don't see that. His Hudl tape from JUCO he played DE and OLB and looked pretty effective.
