Without lamenting over the current situation at linebacker, as we all know many of these guys (Obi, Mouton & Moundros) are, I believe out of eligibility at the end of the year.So what on earth is going to play linebacker next year. Yeah Roh has a lockdown on the deathbacker/pseudoend position but my concern is MLB and WLB. Are we seriously looking at Kenny Demens replacing Ezeh/Moundros by default as there isn't really anyone on the roster and despite the fact he can't manage to move past either despite the non-spectactular play of the incumbents. Are we then going to be starting yet another walk-on after Mouton as Kevin Leach seems to be the successor depth-chart wise.
I try HARD to avoid recruiting until signing day beyond occasionally checking to see whom has committed. Looks like we've signed Kellen Jones from Texas. Some people I know in coaching out here in SE MI say Brennan Beyer has LB potential. I've also heard rumors that Antonia Kinard is enrolling in January. Are any of these guys capable of challenging for a starting role immediately? Is there any serious shot at a recruit who hasn't committed who could get major playing time immediately, particularly one who could be counting on playing right away.
