I've attempted to bring a little order to the mess that is recruiting here. I've trimmed down the list of prospects to the absolute essentials (those that we still have a legitimate shot at). I've listed them in the order that I think we have a shot of getting them in. I've also placed an asterisk next to those attending the OSU game next Saturday. Hopefully at least some of you find this as helpful as I do (I have a weird thing with needing everything to be as simple and organized as possible, lol).
RB: WHITE, HOPKINS (FB?), *McDowell
WR: ROBINSON (S?), MILLER (TE?), JACKSON (TE?), WILLIAMSON, *Stills
SR: DRAKE, DILEO
CB: AVERY, TALBOTT, *Christian, *Grimes, *Mathis
S: JONES, JOHNSON, *Knight, *Jefferson, Parker
LB: ROBINSON, *Furman, Nealy, Cornelius, Olaniyan?
DE: WILKINS, KINNARD, PASKORZ, *Murphy
DT: TALBOTT, *Beachum, *Ash, Thornton
It sounds like we've got the inside track on Christian, Grimes, Murphy and Beachum. If those recruits come through, it leaves us needing a LB and a S. I'm guessing that our best bets at these two positions are Furman and Knight.
If Stills commits, that's a huge bonus (this team needs downfield speed at reciever). It's hard to tell how interested we are in McDowell, but I guess that he would be a bonus as well.
That wouldn't be a bad class, especially considering our on the field performance the last two seasons...
