I'm really excited to see how Chris Fox does.  He was initially the OL I was most excited about, but he hasn't been as visible since his commitment as many of the other guys have.  I hope to see him do well against some top DLs.

Depends on which recruiting service you talk about.  Since this is a Rivals thread, we would have to get those two guys and then have one or two continue to move up the rankings (e.g., Dawson / Taco).  Sounds as if the RIvals mods are predicting a 3rd place finish for our class unless the last two guys are top-100 kids.

Yes, of course... BUT:

1)  Rankings are fluid.  Kids could jump into the top 100 or out of it.  Please remember a lot of our commits are guys they "were on early" in the process - thus will fall in the rankings as they review other "new" kids more closely.  

2)  Only the top 20 kids from each class matters.

3)  The odds of landing two top 100 kids is not as good as you might think (even throwing McQuay, Fuller, and Green into the mix).

I love how this message board now covers posts of "other prestiguous schools that offer long snappers".  

"SEE! We are TRENDSETTERS!  Seeeeeeee!"

If you had told me the recruiting class would wrap up the way it has, I would have taken you to the hospital to have you sedated.  That being said, "I trust the coaches".

Even if this class stays as is and we don't land any other high profile recruits the fact that we are going to get an early jump on next years class is enough for me
