Apologies in advance for those who only like to discuss the upcoming game this week. However, with the commitment of Hill, I thought it would be good to take a look at how the class is looking so far.
I feel like this is a solid B+ class at this point. I am not one of the stargazers who gets upset when Harbaugh takes a lower ranked prospect because he has a pretty good track record for getting productive players that are lower in the rankings. However, getting some elite talent in every class is obviously important.
McNamara is a fine prospect at qb, absolutely love our RB tandem, and really like the additions of Jackson and Stewart as slot weapons, as well as All at TE. OL is so tough to tell. Would feel better if we had a 5 star tackle committed but wouldn’t we all. If we add Keegan I feel it’s a very good OL haul. Only obvious weakness is outside receiver. I think Kent will outplay his ranking and should move up, but we really need a guy like Kyle Ford.
Adding Daxton is obviously huge. We haven’t had an elite true safety in a long time. The rest of the secondary recruits seem solid, but not spectacular. A really good DL class already, getting someone like Harrison or Karlaftis would just be icing on the cake. I think Hinton will be in the Aubrey Solomon mold. I like Velasquez as a Viper and we have enough young LBs that this doesn’t seem like a crucial need this year.
Overall I think the class will have 26 or 27 commits. Would really like to finish with at least Keegan and a very good WR. Anything above should be considered a luxury.
