According to Bill Polian, this is a done deal. It will be interesting to see how the players feel about this especially with a potential player strike.
EDIT: I know we want to limit OT posts. Feel free to delete if necessary.
There is a lot of breathless anticipation at a potential Dee Hart commitment next week. This is all well and good. I hope Dee comes too. But I have to say, if I was forced to choose, I would rather have another 4 star LB or CB over Dee. Or another stud OT or DT. We're already doing well on offense, and between Shaw, Toussaint and the rest, will be ok with the RB position. Yes, Dee Hart could well improve things. But if our defense becomes dominant, he won't matter so much. If our defense is still porous, he also won't matter so much.
Hopefully, this isn't a choice that has to be made. We get Dee to commit, and plent of solid "D" commits as well.
Great article about Taylor Lewan...I dont know about you guys but I like the kid and love that he wanted Jake Longs number tolive up to the expectations. I had no idea Taylor put on thirty pounds since he was her!!!!
With all of the hand wringing about the need to improve our defense I have not felt enough urgency in the recruitment of defensive tackles. We are very young at DE with RVB backed up by three freshmen: Black, Wilkins and Paskorz, but at least we have numbers there and I believe Zettel wiil come in at that position. At NT we have MM the Beast and then a great void as Big Will is not ready for prime time. Even should Campbell develop as we all hope that would still leave only Richard Ash as depth and he seems to be workout-challenged given the huge amount of weight that he gained in the past year. The only quality NT recruit that we have a good shot at is Darian Cooper, and I think he is a good one, but if he does not see the Blue Light we will be very thin at NT in the post-Martin world (make that 2012 MM... please!!).
At the 3 Tech we are also extremely thin with undersized freshman Terry Talbott and injured walk-on Heninger as the likely replacements for the meh duo of Banks and Sagesse. I believe that Chris Rock is slated for that spot as well, but it seems imperative that we recruit one more big body in this class - Branden Jackson's team mate Delvon Simmons would fit the bill.
