They are counting on Joe Reynolds to take reps this fall, so that could be a fourth. 

This further indicates that the class is going to be probably 20 guys. Attrition is inevitable and there are some fifth years in line for the firm handshake.

I think it's basically an issue of decorum. You're talking about college-aged kids who are, at best, 22 years old that play a game for our amusement. Often speculation about their place on the team or in school is in the context of "are they being kicked off/out because they broke a rule" or "will they be here next season because they aren't playing well." Out of general respect for the players, speculation without confirmation from the program about their status with the team is kept to a minimum.

Seems like Borges wants to be able to do anything with the offense he wants depending on what teams are throwing at him.  Giant and athletic tight ends, speedy slot guys with after the catch ability, big fast downfield threats, and a violent run game.  Sounds like a recipe for success to me.  We're gonna be multiple on both sides of the ball.

I would expect to see at least one of those speedy, 6'0/6'1" guys that we've recruited at DB last year and this year to end up on the offensive side of the ball, too. That would fill that slot need pretty well, especially since at least a couple of those guys played receiver in high school.

There's just too much talent that we've recruited there lately to keep them off the field, but you can't play dime defenses all day, either.

Considering that Scott is rumored to have Michigan as his leader and KJ Williams could be a backup plan. Wasn't sure how Canteen fit in there but if the coaches are hoping for Scott and Canteen as their final two, that clicks a bit more
