A lot of posts about defensive recruiting and the need for Lb's and overall defensive needs, but looking at the depth chart by class I think everyone is overlooking the fact we have a lot of bodies in the system we just need to wait a little bit for them to hopefully develop. We have 5 athletic guys with various levels of recruiting hype waiting in the wings Bell, Hawthorne, Jones, Demens and Smith along with Fitzgerald. You never know when things are going to kick in, these guys have ability. Someone will surprise us. LB is very difficult to play and takes a while to learn...just ask Burgess, Crable and Harris who were the backbone of our 2006 defense who up until that year were marginal or disappointing in their performance. Don't give up on Fitz and the rest of the Frosh's just yet.
fair point that
