over when and where all this talent will get on the field.  Which is a lot of fun.

I think Mattison has already demonstrated that SLB's will rotate often.  If RJS (who I believe has already said he'd like to RS) and Bolden play that position, Ross at Mike, Ringer at WLB.  That'd be just fine.  Of course we're still thin at WLB, so whoever plays best may go there immediately.

For sure, its gonna be nice to try and fit talent onto the field; good problem to have.  To me, Ross looks like a WLB; a little undersized, but fast (and hopefully thus, good in coverage) and diagnoses plays very well from the limited film I've seen.  RJS seems like a MIKE; large frame, a little more like a guy that will clog up the middle, a little less quick in keeping the edge.  Bolden looks to have lots of flexibility with his size/athleticism, and Ringer looks like a WLB which is great, because as you say, we lack good depth.  God, this is gonna be a great problem to have trying to fit everyone in.

I think our LB corps has been pretty darn good, especially as of late. Both Morgan and Ryan have had their struggles, but they're also both freshmen and are improving every week. I doubt that any of the guys in this class will supplant our starters any time soon.

Also, for those mentioning lack of depth at the WILL, don't forget about Antonio Poole. He's redshirting because he needed to put on weight, but one good year of bulk and Poole will be pushing for a starting spot.

but who wouldnt want a 5 star reciever who is ranked the number 2 reciever in all the land? Plus he goes to a school who obviously coaches talent with the way Blake has come along as a true freshman. The coaches want him in a bad way it was just grades that were initially the problem.

land all of those young men, I am gonna need you to play the lottery for me. It is not out of the question, but that would be the greatest end of season haul ever. I pray your right cause we will be loaded for a long time wow.
