Appreciate the recruits by class (and agree that it is encouraging), but aren't we forgetting one Colton Christian being plucked out of obscurity at the swingman position?

i think maybe you were thinking of Josh Gordon, the fella from Texas with an unrequited love for Michigan?

hey brian, thanks for another great, detailed run-down. i am glad to see the offensive line played as well in your estimation as it seemed on Saturday.
there was one snippet i was confused by, and i'm hoping someone can clear it up for me-
"Clemons is getting killed by the lack of depth in the slot and Odoms' emergence;"
My interpretation goes something like this: clemons has the size to be an outside type receiver, but he also has the quicks to be a slot/electron type guy; with the slot position thin in RR's first year and a decent stable of outside receivers, he gets moved to the slot and sits because Odoms has played well. yes?
We definitely haven't seen much of Clemons, either this year or ever, which makes it tough in my mind to render a verdict on whether he's got the five star potential many locals talked about when he was being recruited. so my other question is, are we making a mistake by allowing him to be the odd man out? Odoms has played well, but he's still a freshman. It would seem risky not to get some other guys game experience in case he gets hurt, or wears down, or simply starts making freshman mistakes. thoughts?
