Quick 2015 Class Recruiting Question

Submitted by JR's Flow on June 22nd, 2013 at 10:14 PM
Is Hoke & Co. looking to get both Damien Harris and Mike Weber as of now? I know all the Fournette hype could change this all in a heart beat but could someone verify?

I know Coach Hoke has said he would like to take RBs in every class, but limited numbers this year may not let that happen. So two next year is highly likely.

unless we somehow land fournette i really hope we don't take a RB in this class. weber/harris spaced two classes from green/smith would be great. I feel like either weber or harris could commit at the bbq next month (more likely weber)

I think we will be okay skipping a RB in this class even if we don't get Fournette (not buckled up yet). We've taken enough the last two years to pass on one this year. We could always redshirt Shallman or Deveon Smith.

and take 4 top backs a year. Granted, we don't want to play the oversigning/St. Saban's Hospital game, but I think we can afford to take multiple a year, especially at the level of quality we're talking about.

We were a team that was forced to play nearly everyone early because Lloyd decided to treat the last two years of his time in AA as a paid vacation.  If you will recall, RR was forced to start out with a walk-on qb who beat out a 4* and a lone returning starter in a sophomore on offense, and that happened to be on the line.  Our two RBs Minor and Brown couldn't put up a thousand between them and we had an estimated 21 players on defense when an ideal number would be between 43 and 46.  Oh yeah, RR was also faced with the outgoing coach leaning into his players ears and telling them to go to other schools.  Real nice guy. Real Michigan Man.    These numbers are about right as to is the record.  It's difficult to play even close to .500 ball when you have what basically amounts to a junior varsity going against 23 year olds. And people were suprised it was ugly>????????  Yeah, go figure.

Yes, we don't lead the national in medical schollies like Bama.  Plus Bama didn't have a coaching change.  Plus we don't have newspaper articles about kids being pushed out for scholarship purposes.  And we have signed about 15 less kids over a certain time period.  Other than that, yeah the situations are totallly comparable.

Focus should be quarterback over running back right now. We are an injury or two away from disaster. Even moving forward over the next 3 years.
