this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
1.) On the unofficial two-deep we've got Royce Jenkins-Stone as the backup WLB. Per his recruiting profile, I thought he'd be the back-up SAM. Currently, Beyer is the backup SAM, and Beyer won't likely move (WDE is taken up by Clark [Sr], Ojemudia [Soph], and Charlton [Fr], not to mention incoming recruits like Lawrence Marshall).
The depth chart by class really exemplifies my above statement regarding depth at LB. What I'm wondering is what the board thinks about RJS moving positions to SAM. He and Winovich are the best protoypes for that position on the roster, but if RJS moves from WLB this year, we have no depth.
Basically, do we see RJS as moving to SAM next year (backing up JMFR), or does he stay at WLB?
2.) The slot position loses 2/3 of its players after this year. We are bringing in new WRs, but none fit the "slot" position (except A. Scott, who has not committed). After this year, only Demario Jones (6'2) will be a "slot" WR. I know we're moving away from the position, but in the ideal Borges offense, we should still have a player who can play the slot position on offense.
Do we move one of the smaller CBs -- Richardson, Lewis, [insert any and all Cass Tech CBs here]? Or do you guys see someone moving from RB -- Norfleet, Hayes?
It's not terribly important: A. Scott as a potential commit, other WRs able to move inside, multiple TE/U-back/H-back types. Nevertheless, it's the offseason and I'm bored at work.
I searched and didn't see this posted and just wanted to share this little girl's highlight video.
