this may be of some local interest
There's a nice diary entry right now about who we could sign to fill the remaining recruiting spots.
So this entry will probably be somewhat redundant. But instead of focusing on specific players when we know so little information about the potential snake-oil candidates I thought I would focus on positional needs. In other words, which positions do you think we most need to fill with any remaining scholarships? The best way to think of it is like this: If we could sign one 5* recruit, which position would you hope he played?
My priority list would be as follows:
1. MLB - We are still desperate at this spot.
2. DE - We have bodies, but could use a stud.
3. OL - We don't need for next year, but a star is needed for the future.
4. S - Definite need, but we have three guys already in this class
Any other positions are less critical since we have stars or depth at them (Gardner, Christian, Miller, etc.).
What impact does Urban Meyer's resignation have on recruits? Is the University of Florida brand stronger than the Urban Meyer name?
On Scout's front page the headline reads "Best guess recruiting class : Getting to 29" ... I thought the magic number was 28?
The 28 count includes Witty, Furman, Grimes and Murphy with one extra spot being a possible Sean Parker.
Where's the extra spot coming from? Brandon Smith bailing? Or is this a typo on their part?
In the Weekly Recruiting Wrap, Josh devoted an entire section to the possibility of Devin graduating early from Inkster and enrolling in January at UM as becoming very real again.
The article mentioned that Inkster's principal is/has been talking with Pioneer's principal regarding the mid-year graduation process, who of course is familiar as he is Austin White's father and because Ricardo Miller is graduating early from Pioneer.
Here's hoping that all the hoops can be navigated and Devin is able to enroll in January!
Just thought I'd post this article for those who haven't seen it yet:
DG sounds as solid as ever, not that any of us were concerned.
